Just tested out a couple of games using the latest versions. here's a couple of things I've found that are new to this version. lemme know if you have any similar results:

Gran Turismo 2 - can't get either disc to start, regardless of CD-Rom settings

Gran Turismo - same as GT2

Tenchu 1 - In-Game Background music works now without repeating every 10 seconds or so

Tenchu 2 - Can't get to start

Resident Evil 1 - In Game Speech works better, still breaks up a bit

Resident Evil 2 - In-Game Speech still broken, and Disc 1 one doesn't start while Disc 2 does under the same CD settings. . .

Resident Evil 3 - In Game Speech broken

Metal Gear Solid - In Game speech works a lot better, but still breaks up a tad

Tony Hawk 2 - Still Works great.

I tested some others, but the results weren't as exciting. I do have a question for everyone though: is the in-game speech breaking up certain games a result of the sound/cdrom plugin used, or is it that the internal SPU core still needs work? just wondering, cuz the speech thing in certain games is the only complaint I have about this wonderful emu.

Here are my specs to top it all off:
Celeron 433 @ 540
128 MB Ram
Geforce2 MX video w/ 12.41 drivers
SBLive! Value
Win2k Sp2
Decent CD Drives
Plenty of HD Space

And Under epsxe -
video - Pete's OGL 1.50
Sound - Epsxe Core 1.40 (all options checked)
CD-Rom - Epsxe WNT/W2k Core 1.40 (neither option checked)
Bios - SCPH1001.BIN

Be sure to share. . .

For me, Chrono Cross no longer works with 1.4. It simply stops before the Squaresoft water thing comes up.

::re-downloads 1.2::


Edit: whoops, nevermind, 1.4 doesnt have an MDEC option anymore, had to go back to 1.2, enable it, then re-appy 1.4. Why is the MDEC function missing anyway?

Actually, now that I've done a tad more testing, I've gotten Disc 1 of Resident Evil 2, GT1, and Tenchu 2 all to load. still no dice on either Gran Turismo 2 disc.

Hmm, GT2 works fine for me, I've got the Accurate CDRom Timing enabled and all's well... it does seem to load/flip through screens a little slower than 1.2.0, strange, it works though. :)

Tried a couple games, Final Bout no longer stutters during a voiced energy blast. Armored Core: MoA seems fine so far, although I haven't gotten to the "I don't CARE, who ya are" part yet =). FFT is worse with Pete's sound plugin. The music is perfect, but many sound effects don't play (and why would you play the game without 'chink' and 'GWAAA!'?).

Good Release

Calb, Galtor, and _DEMO_

Thaank you Lots of cool stuff, Thanks for the Clone Cd support! (Mwarhead does a little dance) and the fix for X5. But, AREA 51 still does not work. Lewpy says it has to be an emulator bug especially since in 1.04 it crashes, in all other version it was just really messed up. Please email me if you need more info on this, maybe a few savestates, or a few "locations" to get the game "from".

BTW:
Here are my specs:
Amd Duron 750
192mb of Ram
20 GIG HDD
3dfx Voodoo 3 2000
Cable Modem
Win2k SP2
Sb 16 PCI
48x Cd Rom
8x4x32x CDRW

Well I tried out Chrono Cross, had no problems with it whatsoever. Tried out a few other games. Have voices in Ogre Battle!!! But not all of them, a few are missing that I noticed showed up in Bleem. But I'm extremely happy that the place I was stuck in Legend of Dragoon is fixed!! Where I get bopped by Meru with a shoe or boot or pillow or something I dunno. No longer sticks yey!!! Many thanks for all the good work.

after yet MORE testing, I've come across a few more things. and I'm even happier. I finally got GT2 to start. turns out it was a memcard issue oddly enough. and, if you leave accurate cd-timing enabled, it fixes the speech cutting out on Resident Evil 2 and 3. I'm quite excited about this. :) it doesn't seem to help Metal Gear Solid or Resident Evil 1 as much, since both seem to function decently anyway. now, the only real problem I'm running across is that nothing seems to fix the in-game speech on the Syphon Filter 1 and 2. oh well. can't win 'em all. I'm quite happy already.

Work's great for me. Seems better and more stable. . .

I like this. Can't wait to see improvement even more. So far, it plays most of the 192 games i own pretty good. For some reason, The music speeds up faster here and there like it can't sync right or something. Other then that, i just hit the F6 key for now and disable music until there's a fix (hopefully something that can better autoframe adjust the movie sequences. But hell, I don't really use much of my Playstation anymore, i use ePSXe with my GeForce TV output and play faster, and higher resolution with higher def. textures, with my Wingman Rumblepad dualshock.
Plays great. RC-Copter is actually a wicked game if you haven't tryed it yet!!!

(Specs)
AMD Athlon 1.3Ghz
320 Megs PC133 Ram cas2
GeForce 2 with TV Output to my 32" Sony Vega
SBLive! Hooked up to my Sony Digital Receiver, through my 5 channel speakers w/125w Subw.
Wingman Dualshock Rumblpad.


BTW- See 'The Fast and the Furious' !!!! bad a55 movie I've seen in a lOOOoooong time!!!

great job epsxe team. I played through the first level of Medal of Honor, and didn't run into any noticeable glitches. I also tried Jet Moto 2 for the first time, and it was playable. Can't wait to try the rest.

Valkyrie Profile work too. Now you can go to the world map without crash. But in the battle is VERY VERY VERY LAGGY and I try all plugin but the result is same. Any1 here can help to fix that? I know only 1 way to play is switch VGS when in caves or dungeon for battle and switch to Epsxe when you exit the cave and travel iaround the map.:eyemove: :smash:

Hehe No Parasite Eve 2

Well as i figured, epsxe still dont even near run p.e.2. I wonder why?, The game has been out way too long for every updated emu out to run it fine, They need to stop worring about ff9 and worry about other games like p.e.2. Personally i think pe2 is the 2nd best ps1 game i have in my library. So if any of you gotten pe2 to work post specs and configs.


(I tried fpse but it has to many gliches to enjoy playin it)
My Specs follows:
1000mghz AMD TBird
456mb ram
SBLive platinium
Audiophile 24/96
ATI Radeon VE 32mb
13.gig HD

I was able to play Valkyrie but the gameplay was really slow and the voices were AWFUL! They sounded robotic! Could you please post your plug-in specs for this game?

erm... L:SSSC worked well with 1.0.1 already...? haven't tried it with 1.4.0 'cause I sold it...

maybe a GPU bug? I played LSSSC with Lewpy's with Voodoo3 back then..
