To Get FM3 running well on ePSXe...

That is a very hard, hard task, I mean it...

well, I am playing it too, and I don't know why, although the Framerate counter(I am using Pete's Direct3D plugin), it's always show 60fps, but the screen doesn't say so, it's always very slow between the frame update, so all i do is turn of the frame limit, so it would run as fast as possible (mine max out at 200 fps or more :) ), the play become nice, but too fast, but that is much better than the slow one (oh yeah, my PC: P3600EB with V3 3k, sblive value and 128MB RAM).

anyway, you can also convert the CD into an ISO, that would help a lot too :).

My suggestion:

1) Make sure you check "Accurate CD-ROM Timing" or the game won't start.

2) Use Pete's Plugins, and enable "Special Game Fixes", and in the submenu enable "Use PC FPS Calculation". This'll fix the problem goldentuxedo mentioned.

After this, the game will run mostly fine, but the speed in the MDECs will be incorrect (a side effect of the fix above), and it will still crash occasionally.

I've tried to get FM3 running in a way that could be described as playable for several months - with no success.

FPSE runs this game 90% perfectly - in this one instance I'd suggest giving ePSXe some vacation time and use FPSE instead.

Well, it's not like I don't use FPSE or AdriPSX, but both of it crashed everytime I try to config their plugins, so I am not gonna bothering using them(just wait until they release their new version), but that's alright, anyway, I am also using VGS and wow, FM3 running almost too well( I MUST say that, but it also have bugs, like whenever loading the save from memory card, you can only load the first entry(you can save to the other entry, but whenever trying to load them, you won't see them :( ) so, that's alright :)

what the hek is happening??? :(
This is normal when using this fix. You should get 30 FPS for NTSC and 25 for PAL. Still, the in-game speed seems correct for me with this fix.

Well, I don't know, but it seems that the slow frames still occuring after the options turned on...

so, any other ways to make it run better?

(anyway, I also try FM3 with VGS, it runs perfect, but there are some save problem, like you can save your game in the memory card file, but you can't load them(you can only load from the first slot :( and if you do try to save to the second one, you won't be able to load it. But when you convert the Memory Card file to the ePSXe's format and you can see your saves that you can't load)
