Ah, in that case I have that set to 120%. When asked about DPI I was thinking of the Scale and Layout settings which is set to 100%.

GSdx-gui: Add dithering option to windows gui

There is currently no on-hover tooltip for this option. Dunno if this should be a separate bug report.

Issues with very large PNACH files (some codes are ignored)

Hmmm nevermind and sorry for wasting your time. It turns out multiple files were messing with the same stuff and conflicting.

Issues with very large PNACH files (some codes are ignored)

PCSX2 version: 1.5.0 revision 3200 1.6.0 1.7.0 dev-143

PCSX2 options: Irrelevant/changes have no effect on the issue.

Plugins used: Irrelevant/changes have no effect on the issue.

Description of the issue: When working with very large PNACH files (55,000+ cheats), some of the codes are ignored and the codes that are ignored vary depending on the order the codes are loaded in.

How to reproduce the issue: 1) Acquire a copy of Kingdom Hearts 2: Final Mix (Japanese exclusive game) 2) Follow the setup guide I've written here to apply a Randomizer mod, I use the CrazyCatz translation (On the Valaxor website leave mostly everything on default, turn off Critical Mode): https://bit.ly/KH2FM_Randomizer_Setup_Guide 3) Test the game after following the guide. 4) You should begin with a choice of a Staff, Sword or Shield. Once you've made a choice you should be taken to the Garden of Assemblage with no AP Boost items in the Inventory > Stock menu. Keyblades you find while playing the game will correctly have Abilities assigned to them. 5) Rename the PNACH files to change the order they are loaded in (PCSX2 loads files alphabetically afaik). Now when you enter the Garden of Assemblage you will start with 48 AP Boosts but Keyblades you find in the game won't have any Abilities assigned to them.

Expected outcome All cheats to be applied... and for them to be applied consistently.

Last known version to work: Unknown, 1.50 Revision 3200 is the first to claim support for unlimited cheat codes though. Maybe no one had previously come up with a scenario that involved a lot of cheat codes so it was never fully tested?

OpenGL Frame Pacing Problem for 30FPS games (not FPS related) - Triggerable

PCSX2 version: 1.6.0 v1.7.0 dev 143 gf44f676cc

PCSX2 options:

EE/IOP: Chop/Full VUs: Chop/Extra+Preserve Sign GS: NTSC 60 (instead of 59.94) Speedhacks: MTVU Multi-threaded (MicroVU1) enabled + default speed hacks Game Fixes: Use software renderer for FMV.

Plug-ins used: Default plug-ins GSDX AVX2 OpenGL (Hardware)

Description of the issue: Multi-tasking and then returning to the gameplay window of PCSX2 can induce Frame Pacing issues where it frequently intermittently behaves very poor/stuttery/choppy while FPS remains excellent.

60FPS games like Atelier Iris 3 don't seem to produce the issue. May be a 30FPS exclusive issue. The issue appears to be OpenGL exclusive.

Steps to reproduce? While playing Kingdom Hearts 2: Final Mix, multi-tasking and then returning to the gameplay window of PCSX2 can induce Frame Pacing issues where it frequently intermittently behaves very poor/stuttery/choppy while FPS remains excellent. Potentially need to be either in a place where enemies can spawn or a Save Point is visible on screen.

The problem can be easily induced by clicking on the Taskbar or main PCSX2 window and then the gameplay window, repeating the action can resolve the problem (remains resolved for multiple hours at least, if you don't multi-task again). You may need to perform this more than once to switch the behaviour but generally once is enough to cause the behaviour change.

Mcd001.zip KH2:FM & AI3:GP saves, KH Save is slightly busted but serviceable for reproducing the issue)

Last known version to work: Unsure.

Get WS_POPUP back

Fullscreen Optimizations can be disabled but Microsoft wlil no doubt get rid of that compatibility option at some point which will be a dark day for old video games.

I've explained my issue in this forum thread: https://forums.pcsx2.net/Thread-Frame-Pacing-Problem-not-FPS-related

Get WS_POPUP back

I'd love Fullscreen Exclusive mode, so much better than the various issues caused by the DWM. If the program crashes in a way that prevents other programs from appearing over the crashed application window than that is handled by setting Task Manager to "Always on top" mode before opening PCSX2, which anyone using Fullscreen exclusive mode in any application should have enabled as it allows the Task manager to appear over programs that have crashed in such a manner.

While Fullscreen Exclusive mode may not be standard (even though it's worked fine 99.99% of the time for decades), it handles frame presentation a lot better than whatever the Windows DWM does to the majority of programs not carefully programmed to work with it.

Nah it didn't resolve it. I'm not entirely sure what is going on but the emulator works fine and then something, unsure what, causes it to fall in to a bad mode where frame duplication frequently happens. The only way to stop it occurring, at least temporarily, is to do something that makes the screen flicker like opening and closing the graphics plug-in UI.

Unsure if i should make a new report to discuss this or discuss it on the forum.

I was getting periodic long bursts of Frame Doubling with my Nvidia Geforce 1070Ti and OpenGL, I'll give this EnableVsyncWindowFlag a shot to see if it improves the situation.

Kingdom Hearts II - Final Mix (KH2FM) Z-Fighting(?)

Also happens inside the mansion.

  • Stand on the ground floor of the lobby near the door on the left (when facing away from the main Mansion entrance).
  • Look towards the space between the 2 staircases.
  • The shadow on the wall of the farthest staircase will flicker as the camera moves.
