Never mind.  I can run it in Progressive scan 4:3 and Stretch but not 16:9.  It seems strange since my display is wide screen.

My Current Settings



Works 100% for me even tested it in a Vs's match against my friends Normal FPS variation between 59-63fps
Which is playable for me at least.
Cpu Settings i find "limit" is the best option in order to keep a consistent fps through out game play. 


Normal Standing in practice fps 60


After Combo in practice fps 59.93



Only char that gives me problems is Reisbyfe

FPS jumping around 59-6x looks rather normal.
Though I'd advise you against the widescreen resolution since the game is meant to be played in a 4:3 ratio.
Also turn off the emulator's interlacing option and trigger the game's 480p mode by holding cross and triangle (B and D) and selecting the upper choices when the game boots, it'll look a lot better.

First, to anyone who wants to play on ps2 instead of pc, I'll just say: get Magic Swap Disc.  Works perfectly, is inexpensive, no modding, doesn't void any ps2 warrenty.  I also heard about using the memor32 memory card to put on memento firmware, which allows you to play without swapping discs.  Only thing is, you have to rip the game off the disc to a pc, patch it, then burn it to a dvd-r (which I can't find a problem with since it's your own game you bought anyhow).

Another thing to keep in mind for MBAA on PC is that from what I understand, Sega Naomi (the arcade machine MBAA runs on) emulation is coming along quite well, and I believe MBAC B2 is supposed to work.  There's little point doing that (what with the PC version and all...) but I don't see why MBAA won't work.  Should run better than using a ps2 emulator, at least.

I've got a question:

I want to record some stuff on PCSX2. First I tried Fraps but it crashes everytime I try to record something. Then I tried to use PCSX2's recording feature. It doesn't record sound. How do I get it to record sound?

So, I can run MBAC with 0 hitches. Is MBAA more troubling?   :slowpoke:

Well seeing as one of the MBAC ports was MADE to run on the PC, yes.

One question:

Using that ZeroGS atm but it has somewhat weird lags when I use it. That GSDx9 thingy however causes extreme blurryness even without filters. Screen resolution and internal resolution all set to 640x480px. What can cause this?

I suppose that ZeroGS uses more processing power to make the images look better and more akin to the PS2 and thus, games play a little slower unless you have an awesome computer.

whenever i put the 1650 plugins in the plugin folder i get error messages when i go to configure
it says "this application has failed to start because MSVCR100.dll was not found Re-installing the application may fix this problem"
but there isnt anything to re-install
then it takes me to the configure screen but zerogs is the only selectable plugin for graphics

edit* i think i got it to work now nvm
yup like a charm :)

First off, sorry for the ignorance of this post but I just came across this game and thought it looked quite amazing. I'd like to give it a try but i have a few questions about playing this on the PC. First and foremost, can you play this online? and if so is there a decent amount of people who play?

There is no online for it. The only way to play it on PC is using a Playstation 2 emulator, and the PS2 emulator doesn't have an online component.

Thanks for the response, though it's rather unfortunate, i doubt there are a lot of Melty Blood players to play with in the Kentucky area.

Got a problem.
I changed my VGA card to ATI Radeon 4350 512MB RAM.
Now the game framerate reduced to to 5 or below in character select screen. It's very very slow, took like 10 sec to load a frame or smth like that. Before character select screen everything works fine, even in menu. Also when the opening video loads its the same problem. Watching animes (playing avi, mp4, mkv etc files) is fine.
Anybody knows what cause this problem and how can I fix it?

i got a new pc for christmas :toot:
now the game works almost perfectly... in the official release that is.
go to http://forums.pcsx2.net/thread-3716.html and try out the Beta, it made wonders for me!
Removed all the small slowdowns that kept the game from working 100% for me (yes, that includes progressive scan mode as well),
only thing that still slows the game down is Osiris.
Scratch that, I just assumed that Osiris would since she lagged the game so much before.
I was wrong, no lag at all during the fight!
