2D Fighting Games not up to par...

I have a small assortment of 2D fighters. Come this weekend I will be upgrading to Windows2K. This will not allow me to use VGS, my default fighter emu which runs them perfectly. So I went to my next favorite emu ePSXe. I've tried every single configuration with every plugin available, and the only way my 2D fighters will run smoothly is with the music turned off. Here are my stats:

900mhz AMD Athlon
GeForce 2 w/ 64 megs
640 ram
40X Phillips DVD Drive
Windows Me

I dont think this is related to my comp stats cause it can handle most anything. Any emu says that if you have a GeForce, that you should use an OpenGL Plugin. These plugins for some reason give me the worst performance out of them all. D3D plugins give me the best. Go figure.

Any help on this matter is greatly appreciated.

You can go to edit at the bottom of a post and then delete the thread. If you wanna. Its a legitamate thread though. I posted in it.
I tried the 4x ones in both resolutions, it's still too slow to play.

I've been reading through a post about FSAA and GeForce cards... seems some people are having the same troubles I am.
Well FSAA is a big performance hit. Did OpenGL increase for you at all with the new drivers?
wasnt able to finish downloading the drivers. They were transfering at a blistering 809 bytes per seccond...

I'm trying them from a different site now...
You won't see a huge difference between 12.90 and 12.41
well as I just recently noticed I didnt even have those. I had what I believe to be 4.21 drivers. So I should see a nice boost
I'm confused, did you download 12.41? You must have or you wouldn't be able to use FSAA in OpenGL. Oh I got it now. You have 14.21? those are tweaked for Geforce 3 and won't work as good as 12.xx for a GF 2.
no.. sorry... i was a bit confusing... It turns out that at the moment, I dont even have 12.41 drivers. I have detonator 3, but i think they're version 4.12 actually. I just this very moment finished the download of the 12.9 drivers, and am going to install them now.
Ok... Installed the drivers, and it runs flawlessly... 4x FSAA and 640X480

Thanx alot for informing me of these drivers...
I would think that this means you don't have your graphics card's opengl icd installed properly, so it's using a software-only icd, such as the microsoft or sgi one. It's really only matrox cards that are extremely slow with ogl.

Also, you'll want to make sure that you get the self install drivers. From my experience, it's not a good idea to get the auto install ones... They some how corrupted my registry and parts of my system so bad that I had to reformat my hard drive and reinstall windows... :(
