limit fps to 50 to improve pal sound?

Postby tony » Sat Dec 26, 2009 2:19 pm

i have run ffvii (pal) and i get constant 60fps but the sound is a bit jumpy i belive this is due to the pal version being 50fps so is there a way to limit fps to a differnt value for different region games

i ran chrono cross (ntsc) and get 60fps which ntsc games are optamized for and sound is vastly improved

i dont no if this is just coincidence but would like to test my theory

Games are supposed to limit themself to their original speed, I have games running 50 fps for PAL games

But some games on the original PSX couldn't achieve the max speed, Tekken 3 is an example, it was not running 50 or 60 fps on the PS1.
In that case, FpseCE couls eventually run too fast...

Try using un uncompressed iso, this could fix some sounds isues

thanks for your help im using an uncompressed iso of ffvii so it must be running too fast im still amazed that i can play it on my phone, such a good program.
anyway i shall try some more pal games to see what happens to fps and will attempt to test a ntsc ffvii to see if thats any different

So if I run a PAL game instead of NTSC will it essentially run better? For example, I have NTSC games and need 60 FPS to get decent sound etc. So if I can get a steady 50 FPS will the for PAL audio be better since its running full speed?

To limit the fps to 50fps for PAL and 60fps for NTSC, set this in fpse.ini: AutoSpeed=on.

Please post your results when you find out. If so it looks like I may need to obtain some PAL games ;)

my pal games are now running at 50/51 and ntsc at 60 thanks cloud i dont no how that changed to off as defualt is on.

My advice is if you are running a ntsc game and your phone cant get to 60fps i would recomend using the pal alternative as it seems logical that it will run better as pal runs at 50fps and ntsc runs at 60fps

Glad to hear our theory was correct. Very strange how PAL can be full speed 50FPS over the 60FPS NTSC. Time to start looking for some PAL games ;)

i think its to do with usa using 60hz tvs and europe using 50hz (back in the ps1 era before flatscreens) i remember at the time in magazines ect they always moaned when a game didnt include an option to chose if you wanted 60 or 50 as 60 ran better.
