I've been trying to fix this problem for a while now, but I can't seem to find a thread about this (admitedly I didn't look that carefully).
I can run 1.6 perfectly with the following settings:
BIOS: SCPH1001.BIN
Video: Pete's OpenGL2 Driver 2.8
Sound: ePSXe SPU core 1.5.2.
CDRom: ePSXe CDR WNT/W2K core 1.5.2.

But if I try the same settings in 1.7 (or any setting, as far as i can tell), I can't run any games at all. The 'run-bios' shows up as usual. I've tried a few different video-plugins (P.E.O.p.S Soft Driver 1.17 and Pete's D3D 1.76, OpenGL 1.76 and OpenGL2 2.8) and I've tried disabling the sound and using the Null2 driver. But alas...

If I enable the logger, it all seems to start just fine (it's displays the same stuff as 1.6 as far as I can tell) and the program doesn't crash of anything, it just, sort of...stops. I've included a screenshot whilst trying to run FFVIII (which works with 1.6).

You might wonder why I wan't to run 1.7 when 1.6 works fine, but I would like to play Chrono Cross again, but this time without the annoying sound-issues. With 1.6 i could either get the game to sound good and the video to sound horrible or the other way around (if I remember correctly).

And by the way I'm running Vista32bit, Core2Quad Q6600, GeForce 8800GT and Realtek HD sound...hope you can help :)

do you have DEP enabled?

Didn't work :(

The link says that a program will stop completely if it 'violates' the DEP, but mine keeps running. It doesn't freeze og lock up, it just stops doing anything. I can still press escape and exit normally.

DOH! :dead: It acctually WORKS with Chrono Cross! :emb:

I didn't want to bother taking an image of Chrono Cross untill I could get it working with my other games (which I already had iso's of)...sorry for the inconvenience :heh:

Is there an issues with playing PAL-games on a NTSC-bios with 1.7?

Now it's just the usual sound issues, I have to deal with :(

Sound get's distorted once in a while during video and gameplay...but that belongs in a different thread.
