How to Increase FPS on PCSX2

The “frames per second” or “frames per second” (FPS, for its acronym in English) can improve or deteriorate the quality of a video game. If the FPS is too low, the game will play slowly. But don’t blame the Playstation 2 emulator. PS2 emulators are still in their infancy and they have to work hard to make the games work properly. Still, there are a few tricks you can do to make FPS work better.

Step 1

Open PCSX2 on your computer and click the “Settings” button from the top menu in the main program window.

Step 2

Click the “BIOS / Plugin Selector” button when a small menu pops up when you click “Settings.” A new window will appear with different options.

Step 3

Click the “Configure” option next to the “SPU2” option in the new window. These are the sound options for PCSX2. Click the button under the heading “Interpolation” and click the “Linear” option. Also, make sure the “X Audio 2” option is selected under the “Module” heading. Click “OK” to return to the main plugin window.

Step 4

Click the “Configure” button next to the “GS” heading to enter the graphics plug-in settings menu. Click the button to the right of the “Render” heading and click the “Direct3D9” option. Click the “Native” option next to the “PS2 native resolution” option. Click “OK” to save your settings and return to the previous menu.

Step 5

Click “OK” to apply the new plugin settings. Click the “System” button in the top menu of the PCSX2 main window and click “Open CDVD.” Select the PS2 game file from the new window that appears and click “OK” to launch the PS2 game with PCSX2.
