|gameinfo          = Final Fantasy X, the tenth installment of the [[Square Enix#Final Fantasy franchise|Final Fantasy]] series, is one of the most compatible games for [[PCSX2]]. It's not very picky about the choice of plugins and also doesn't need a high-end PC to run fluently. There are some known issues with it though, but most of them are easy to avoid or very minor.

Try to avoid any combination of '''EE CycleRate''' and '''VU Cycle Stealing''', most often it will lead to false fps readings and slowdowns instead of more speed. MicroVU can be faster in some game areas, so try it if you get low fps somewhere. Running the game as an ISO image directly from your hdd is also a good idea. If you have either Windows Vista or Windows7 use the "[[GSDX#Hardware requirements|DirectX10/11 (Hardware)]]" renderer option in GSDX, it's usually faster and more compatible than the DirectX9 one. The '''VSync''' option in the settings of "GS Window" settings should be deactivated, use the '''Frame Limiter''' of PCSX2 to keep your game from running too fast. And last but not least: try the latest public beta of PCSX2 for more speed.

 +
Most of the time this will lead to false FPS readings and slowdowns instead of more speed.
 +
Running the game as an ISO image directly from your hard drive is also a good idea. If you have Windows Vista or later use the "DirectX10/11 (Hardware)" renderer option in GSdx,  
 +
it's usually faster and more compatible than the DirectX9 one. The '''VSync''' option in the settings of "GS Window" settings should be deactivated,  
 +
use PCSX2's '''Frame Limiter''' to keep your game from running too fast. Many reaction-based minigames are easier if you use the '''Slow Motion Adjust''' toggle (Shift+Tab),
 +
as the speed of the gameplay will be slowed down by half (or what you have set in the GS tab for the toggle). On the other hand, if your computer is able to run this game at considerably more than 60 FPS, you can fast forward long conversations or your level grinding with either the '''Turbo Adjust''' toggle (Tab)  or by disabling the '''Frame Limiter''' completely (F4).
 +
Recommended to disable '''Allow 8-bit textures''' in GSdx.
 +
Speedhacks/Settings: '''EE Cyclerate (2):''' Noticeable speedup, setting it to 3 causes problems in FMVs. '''INTC Sync Hack:''' Small if any speedup, no issues. '''Idle Loop Fast Forward:''' Noticeable speedup, no issues. '''VU Cycle Stealing:''' Noticeable speedup, but have issues if set higher than 1 (slight). '''MTVU:''' Noticeable speedup in quad(4)core CPUs.

Many reaction-based minigames are easier, if you use the '''Slow Motion Adjust''' toggle (Shift+Tab), as the speed of the gameplay will be slowed down by half (or what you have set in the GS tab for the toggle. On the other hand you can fast forward long conversations or your level grinding by disabling the '''FPS Limit''' completely, if your computer is able to run this game at considerably more than 60 FPS with either the '''Turbo Adjust''' toggle (Tab) or disabling '''Frame Limiter''' completely (F4).

? ?
  • Intel Core2 Duo @ 2.00 GHz
  • NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT
pre 0.9.7 beta Try to avoid any combination of EE Cyclerate and VU Cycle Stealing.

Most of the time this will lead to false FPS readings and slowdowns instead of more speed. Running the game as an ISO image directly from your hard drive is also a good idea. If you have Windows Vista or later use the "DirectX10/11 (Hardware)" renderer option in GSdx, it's usually faster and more compatible than the DirectX9 one. The VSync option in the settings of "GS Window" settings should be deactivated, use PCSX2's Frame Limiter to keep your game from running too fast. Many reaction-based minigames are easier if you use the Slow Motion Adjust toggle (Shift+Tab), as the speed of the gameplay will be slowed down by half (or what you have set in the GS tab for the toggle). On the other hand, if your computer is able to run this game at considerably more than 60 FPS, you can fast forward long conversations or your level grinding with either the Turbo Adjust toggle (Tab) or by disabling the Frame Limiter completely (F4). Recommended to disable Allow 8-bit textures in GSdx. Speedhacks/Settings: EE Cyclerate (2): Noticeable speedup, setting it to 3 causes problems in FMVs. INTC Sync Hack: Small if any speedup, no issues. Idle Loop Fast Forward: Noticeable speedup, no issues. VU Cycle Stealing: Noticeable speedup, but have issues if set higher than 1 (slight). MTVU: Noticeable speedup in quad(4)core CPUs.

Trivia

  • Original names: ファイナルファンタジーX (SLPS-25050) & (SLPS-72501) & (SLPM-66124)


Known Issues

Characters face the wrong direction during battles

  • Status: Active
  • Type: Minor
  • Description: In certain battles (the Geosgaeno battle in the NTSC-U version, for example), all characters will be facing away from each other.
  • Workaround: Go to Config > Emulation Settings > EE/IP tab, and set Clamping Mode to "Full" (also setting VUs tab Clamping Mode to 'Extra + Preserve Sign' could help this work better), or set EE/IOP Round Mode to "Negative".

Mi'ihen Highroad and in-game menu slowdown

  • Status: Active
  • Type: Minor
  • Description: Although the rest of the game runs fine, the Mi'ihen Highroad area and in-game menu slow down significantly.
  • Workaround: Go to Config > Video (GS) > Plugin Settings, and disable the Allow 8-bit Textures option.

Broken Textures

  • Status: Active
  • Type: Minor
  • Description: Small black lines and dots visible at the edges and corners of texts and images.
  • Workaround: Go to Config > Video (GS) > Plugin Settings, turn on "Enable HW Hacks", go to Configure Hacks and set Round Sprite to "Half". Alternatively set Internal Resolution to "Native" or Texture Filtering to "Bilinear (Forced)".

Subtitle Glitches

  • Status: Active
  • Type: Minor
  • Description: Subtitle text shows various graphical glitches: uneven outlines (some text has much thicker outlines than other text), flickering text or grayed-out text.
  • Workaround: Go to Config > Video (GS) > Plugin Settings, and enable the Allow 8-bit Textures option.

Broken Depth Of Field in fights and cutscenes

  • Status: Active
  • Type: Minor

  • Workaround: Go to Config > Video (GS) > Plugin Settings, turn on "Enable HW Hacks", go to Configure Hacks and set Skipdraw to 1.

Fixed Issues

Flickering FMVs

  • Status: Fixed
  • Type: Minor
  • Affected Game Versions: PAL
  • Description: FMVs may flicker between the game world and the FMV every 0.2 seconds until the FMV ends.
  • Workaround: Switch to Software mode during FMVs by pressing the F9 key.

Dots/Holes in Surfaces, Especially Faces

  • Status: Fixed
  • Type: Minor
  • Description: Dots/holes appear in many surfaces, particularly faces, as described in this thread, Seems to only affect Intel iGPU's.
