Comments: Its a very GPU intensive game, nVidia cards will preform better then ATI cards. To play on native res you should at least be using a nVidia 9800GT or a similar performance ATI card. Note that even though DQVIII is a GPU intensive game a dual core CPU clocked at under 3.2GHz will most likely limit performance.
PAL version tested (Australian, non-platinum version) working great! Full FPS nearly everywhere in 1280x1280 in Rev 2523. Oddly enough, 8-bit textures slow down the PAL version a little bit, so make sure to turn them off! All other hacks were turned on full blast (except VU skipping was only 2x). Ran on a computer with a 9600GT, E4400 Core2 Duo @ 2.4ghz, and Windows 7 Home Premium, using DX10 mode GSdx. Hack comments: Enabling x2 cycle rate and IOP x2 cycle rate may give a slight fps increase. Be sure to enable 8-bit textures in GDSX to get a performance boost.
