It's about time! registering sure took a lot out of me! had to find a russian mail provider and...
nevermind that! THE TOPIC!
I recently formatted my PC.
before that,I had ePSXe installed and all games working perfectly (exept tales of destiny...more on that later)
I backed-up my settings before formatting...but now nothing works!
Xenogears locks up at the first battle scene,in the intro(where you see the burning village,then after that the "broken glass" affect Fei says something and...nothing happens! the music goes on,the robot hovers in the air,but nothing else happens!)
Megaman Legends 2 won't start at all,Breath of fire 3 freezes after the logo thing...the list goes on.
my question is-why? I didn't add/remove/replace any drivers since I formatted my computer and I had the WORKING settings backed-up!
why why why!?!!

P.S. I can't provide my PC/emu specs/settings now,as this isn't my PC...this is my Unc's PC. when I'll be at my PC I will update the post.

I believe that ePSXe plugins are registered to the registry and so you might have to reconfigure the plugins again...

It's a pretty weird behavior. First, disable frame skipping and leave frame limit at 50 (pal games) or 60 (NTSC games). You could try pete's ogl 1.75, as it's been said, but there's nothing wrong with peops itself. Your pc is more than able to handle it. Are you overclocking your pc?

Haha,thanks for the advice and all,but for some reason,the moment I switched BIOS to scph1001 it all started working perfectly :evil:

also,I'm not sure what yyou mean by overclocking my PC,but I like my frame skipping at 80-70 cos' otherwise games are just too slow for my blastering self.

Thanks again for your support :thumb:
