 Post subject: Anyone played Espgaluda on PCSX2?

I'm currently playing Espgaluda on PCSX2 and there's something about it that I can't quite put my finger on, but it doesn't quite feel right. Occasionally it feels like there's some weird framerate issue and it doesn't feel very smooth. This is not when bullets slow down the game, this is something different. Anyone else noticed this? Is there something in the emulator that I should be tweaking specifically for this game? Frame Skipping is disabled. I'm running on a reasonably decent PC (1080Ti, i7 8700K CPU, 16GB RAM) so I don't think that is the issue.

I played the PS2 version of Mushi on real hardware and that was a great game done dirty by an awful, awful port, and that kinda soured me on trying any other CAVE games on the PS2.

I'm kinda skeptical of CAVE's PS2 ports. I'd look for other ways to play these games if you can.

^ Shame on you cause you then missed the best two Cave ports ever (Galuda and DOJ). And Ibara with deinterlace patch is not bad at all thanks to the arrange mode.


Galuda on PCSX2 is likely the worst option to play the game though.

Second that the ports done by Arika for DOJ and Galuda are perhaps the best shmups on the system. 240p, super snappy, tons of options. Just the best.

The ESPGALUDA port is extremely close to the PCB. I own the PCB but prefer playing the port due to the quick restart and the stereo soundtrack. Also, the bonkers arrange mode!

PCSX2 has awful frame pacing, disable the framelimiter and use RTSS to cap it.

Just tried this but unfortunately it still doesn't feel right. I'll try running it on my original launch model PS3 (NTSC CECHA 60GB). It's on a very low firmware so can be softmoded.

I assume underclocking via GroovyMAME isn't an option for this game?

Generic suggestion: can it be a frame rate mismatch, maybe PAL vs. NTSC or either vs. funny monitor rates? Did you try different vsync and buffering options?

Underclocking will never solve a display issue. Just try Groovymame with default settings, the game's v. sync is close enough to 60Hz so even if your monitor isn't very flexible, you'll play it just fine. And even with frame delay on it shouldn't be too demanding, it's not a CV1000 game.

I never noticed significant differences between mame and pcb, apart from the missing pixel errors that occur on pcb when there's a lot of cancels on screen.
I think emulation is excellent and it can even be played at original refresh on VRR monitors.

I meant with regards to slowdown.

What about slowdown? PCB vs MAME?

The PGM-based (or the 68000) games don't have the slowdown issues the infamous CV1000 ones got with Mame. Never read anybody complaining about those here, and el_rika meticulously checks Youtube videos, so we can safely assume Galuda/DOJ/Ketsui run pretty much like the PCBs in this regard till somebody says otherwise.

No, my PC is outputting 60Hz to a TV with 60Hz refresh rate.
