Best settings for my PC
Hi there guys.

Just curious if any of you could give me an overview of what settings on the PPSSPP emulator would run best on my PC build.

I am using Gold and also it's version 1.5.4.

I've had my build since 2015...

Operating System
Windows 7 Professional 64-bit SP1
CPU
Intel Core i7 4790K @ 4.00GHz 26 °C
Haswell 22nm Technology
RAM
16.0GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 666MHz (9-9-9-24)
Motherboard
Gigabyte Technology Co. Ltd. Z97X-Gaming 3 (SOCKET 0) 29 °C
Graphics
27MP75 ([email protected])
Intel HD Graphics 4600 (Gigabyte)
4095MB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 (Gigabyte) 29 °C
ForceWare version: 388.59
SLI Disabled
Storage
238GB Samsung SSD 850 PRO 256G SCSI Disk Device (SSD) 25 °C
1863GB Seagate Expansion USB Device (USB (SATA)) 32 °C
1862GB Western Digital WD Elements 25A3 USB Device (USB (SATA))

I'm not very tech savvy... I had a friend help build my rig.

Cheers.

You honestly don't have to worry.
I've got a 6 year old rig that has but a fraction of the power that yours does and I can run PPSSPP on more than max settings.

So... for best visual quality, render PSP at 8x. Use xbr upscaling at the highest (i think it's 5x?)

You should be running at full speed for pretty much everything.

Maybe look around in the forum for 60fps patches for games you'd like to play to make even more use of your monster pc's specs.

Enjoy!

Edit: Some quick suggestions.

Graphics ->
* Postprocessing shader (if you want to get rid of jaggies, use fxaa antialiasing)
* fullscreen (on)
* Rendering Resolution (10x PSP)
* Vsync (on) <if you have screen tearing, else you can leave this off>
* Upscale Level 5x
* Upscale type xBRZ
* Anisotropic Filtering 16x

That should do you. If for some reason it does run a bit slower than you'd like (unlikely). Just drop down the resolution a bit or the upscale level till you're happy

Thank-you very much. I only have one issue...I'm playing Popolocrois...and it looks as though after each section loads the textures are first jagged, then smooth out after few seconds. Is this normal? Could just be because of the game I'm assuming?

That is the xBRZ upscaling kicking in.
It is not unique to Popolocrois.

Essentially what happens (as i understand it), is that the textures/images are placed in memory and then being smoothed out as it were. This takes a little bit of time whenever new images are loaded.

I wonder if there's a way to speed up that conversion process? Only alternative I can think of is saving the upscaled textures and loading them from the hard drive.

RE: Best settings for my PC
Turning xBRZ up to max can cause hitches currently, even on 5.0 Ghz CPUs. Depends on the game.

To curb this, we limit the number of new textures we upscale per screen. With Vulkan, we can improve this more and likely make it scale more textures by using your GPU, but it isn't working yet. So as current it still uses the CPU.

Popolocrois is also notable in that it performs better with another setting (which hurts the vast majority of other games), which is "retain changed textures". Using this setting may reduce the upscaling kicking in late that you see.

Another option to reduce that is to enable "save new textures" under developer settings. This will start saving textures as PNGs, after upscaling, and then reload them from disk when seen again. This is how one could create an HD texture pack, so you'd be creating such a pack for yourself.

RE: Best settings for my PC
Specifically for Popolocrois I could also recommend just using upscaling shader, they work very well for this game, look pretty much like xBRZ outside of few special attacks that "zoom in" stretching the textures which full screen post process shader really can't handle well. On the positive side it's very fast and applied to every frame.
