ePsxe road texture issue

Postby FIL » Mon Mar 06, 2017 4:33 pm

Hey guys I've always had a problem with racing games in epsxe that i've never been able to fix no matter which combination of plugins and settings I've tried.

Towards the horizon I get big gaps in the road textures that flicker and annoy me. The screenshot below is from Penny Racers but it happens in most racers. I've had this problem across a couple of PCs too but never been able to find a solution. It's not the easiest thing to capture in a screenshot sadly but in motion it's really noticeable.


I've tried opengl,d3d and software plugins, all kinds of compatibility and texture filtering settings and nothing seems to make any difference. Any ideas?

Does this happen with other emulators as well?

I'm trying to get my head around running Retroarch to see if I get that issue there.

EDIT: Couldn't get Penny Racers running in Retroarch but I tried something else and the problem exists in that emulator too. Maybe it's just a Playstation emulation thing all round.

Try PCSXR-PGXP. I just tested it (never played the game before) and it doesn't have any of these black lines.

My settings if they're of any use:


There's also another file in the inis folder called gpuPeteOpenGL2Tweak.ini and it has
Code: Select all

#Fixes VRAM size detection
FixMemoryDetection = true

#Enables VSync, paramater specifies the minimum number of video frames that are displayed before a buffer swap will occur
VSyncInterval = 0

#Hides cursor in window
HideCursor = false

#Use Playstation Emulation Cheater plugin
UsePEC = false

#Disables PEC and emulator save states (ie. F1/F2/F3 keys)
HardcoreMode = false

#Fixes fullscreen aspect ratio, default disabled because it's buggy
FixFullscreenAspect = false

#Disable sound plugin FPS auto limit
DisableSetFrameLimit = false


#Enables GTE Accuracy Hack
GTEAccuracy = true

#Clears GTE vertex cache on VRAM reads, fixes some 2D screens
GTECacheClear = true


#Moves window to X position
WindowX = -1

#Moves window to Y position
WindowY = -1

#Set window on-top flag
WindowOnTop = false


#Internal resolution X multiplier, recommended max: 8
MulX = 4

#Internal resolution Y multiplier, recommended max: 12
MulY = 4


#xBRZ scale, max 6
xBRZScale = 2

#Number of texels in batch for xBRZ scaler
BatchSize = 1024

#Maxium number of threads
MaxSlicesCount = 12

#Deposterize, usefull for games with heavy dithering like Silent Hill
Deposterize = true

#Use nearest neighbour scaler for FBE, requires "2: Standard" setting for FBE!
FastFBE = true

#Forces nearest neighbour scaler
ForceNearest = false

#Texture Cache size (in textures count!) for upscaled textures so texture is upscaled only once - fast!
TextureCacheSize = 128

Config = 240
