Default Low FPS in Ocarina of Time on Fast PC

I have no idea what could be causing it, then again, I'm not too experienced in emulation.

My computer should be able to emulate anything Project 64 throws at it. Here are the specs:

Nvidia GTX 260
Intel Q6600 (Quad Core, 2.4GHz)

I'm running Windows 7 (64 bit). I've tried 1964 too and it runs just as bad. I don't know whether this is a problem with Ocarina of Time or the emulator in general because I don't have any other roms.

The game is running at an average of 15-20 FPS. Other emulators such as Dolphin and PCSX2 run at much higher speeds. I don't know what information to provide, I have my settings at their defaults and I have tried reinstalling, but it made no difference.

Can someone offer some suggestions?

most n64 titles run at 17/18 fps and 20fps for pal and ntsc games respectively.

a few will run at variable fps up to 60.

Fraps said that it was running at 20 fps, but it was definitely running at lower than full speed.

I just tried using Jabo's DX8 video plugin instead of Rice Video and it now appears to run at full speed. Can I load custom textures with Jabo's plugin? I can't find an option to. Which plugin should I use?


I got a new version of Rice and all is well.

Sorry for the trouble.
