Shin Megami Tensei The Strange Journey Redux framerate drops by 50% in menu's

I’ve read on the compatibility page that this game does have this as an issue, but I was wondering is there anything known how to get that speed back? Game is playable fine overall, but was wondering if someone knows a solution.

I found some issues in that log that need resolving:

Playing around with some settings may yield different results, check/uncheck ‘Enable Hardware Shader’, check/uncheck ‘Accurate Multiplication’ and/or ‘Accurate Geometry Shader’

I did try that indeed, I’m not entirely a stranger to emulators, used pcsx2 for awhile, why I decided to ask it on the forum. I always try some stuff myself and if I can’t seem to solve it, it’s off to the forums :slight_smile:

So apparently this is still an issue, it doesn’t necessary make this game unplayable, but it is highly annoying to see and hear the speed drop from 30 flat to 15 fps. Nobody knows why this only happen in any sub menu? Main menu it’s fine, but if you go into Items, Equipment, Fusion or Mission menu the fps drop happens.
