I have to rush some sorry this is fragmented. Your pc is better than mine on both gpu and cpu. I have a an nvidia gtx 1060 and an old 2013 sandy bridge based 2.5Ghz 6core xeon atm.

50Hz Pal/Europe Klonoa 2 patch works the same as the 60Hz NTSC/US version of the patch from Praful.
If you try to force the 50hz patch onto 60hz mode or vice versa it will throughly screw up the game though  x_x

You should be able to use better settings than what I use for the 1060 also dx11 is still faster than OpenGL by a little.
and you don't need mipmapping. actually it used to not even be an option the game will run fine with it off.
Also Blending unit high accuracy in openGL will absolutely destroy your fps   :(
This settings run mostly fine on my 1060

I currently do not know of a way to make fire effects work in Klonoa 2. It has something to do with the the IPU/Playstation 2's Image processing unit. The fire and water use something like a gif or mpeg video.


Also this is the build of pcsx2 that I am referring to that does work currently. https://github.com/PCSX2/pcsx2/commit/fa4ae7800b700ce429822abb734a39556035c946

It's okay, take your time if you're free to answer the other questions.

The crashing issue is weird, no idea why it only crashes for me when I'm in 60hz mode in the mentioned levels?

And how do I use that build you linked? Sorry, I don't know what to do with the link  :sad_face:

Also how do I use dx11 instead of OpenGL?

I ask so many questions I feel really bad, I'm sorry. Thanks for all the help so far.

In graphics options select renderer and then select directx11 hardware.

Crap I got the full github link hold on lemme find the download sorry. https://buildbot.orphis.net/pcsx2/index.php?m=dl&rev=v1.5.0-dev-2887-gfa4ae7800&platform=windows-x86

60Hz mode on PAL Klonoa 2 has to use a different patch from the NTSC Klonoa 2 so that may be why it is crashing. If you do have to play in 50hz mode and want normal speed then play with audio set to async audio. you can speed the game up to 112% using turbo frame limiter on pcsx2 with a custom percentage and get roughly the same gameplay as 60hz Klonoa 2. However cutscenes will but cut off on audio or short.

Hmmm, I see. I'll give the NSTC version a try next time I play, and I'll be using the build you posted.

Hopefully things will be fine. Thank you!  :D

Well. Hoping some recent testing will get at the very least a version of Klonoa 2 working normally again. After I send stuff to pcsx2 forums.

Oh, awesome!!! I saw the video you posted today, it's pretty cool to see the weird textures fixed :O

If I run this build I still need to copy/paste the patches in the cheats folder, right? And is there anything I need to watch out for, like the audio async thing at boot?

The patches come with the emulator now. no needs to download patches or anything unless you want to test old patches for lols. Which I also did yesterday xD

EDIT: PAL Klonoa 2 has a patch now again thanks to Prafull  :D https://buildbot.orphis.net/pcsx2/index.php?m=dl&rev=v1.5.0-dev-3014-g3133221fd&platform=windows-x86

To just think...

We used to go through this junk...

... and this junk...

... to get to where we are now. A more accurate true emulation of Klonoa 2. I love it.  ;D
