I just tried your new 1.34 version and when I run a game then exit out (with epsxe) it freezes the machine. If you let me know how to run the config lister thing to show you my complete details I can post them, for now I'll tell you what I have:

Celeron 366 o/c to 550 (very stable - not the problem)
128mb PC100
8.2GB IBM 7200rpm HDD
Voodoo 5 5500 AGP (not overclocked, also somewhat stable)

I tried all the default settings and also tweeked them all and I get the same result... before I downloaded the new version... I was using version 1.15 of your plugin... works like a charm - somewhat. At least it didnt crash.

If you can help me out I'd greatly appreciate it.

Ok I followed the advice on your page and ran my desktop at 32bit now it doesnt crash, but its severly slower than your older one... I'd like to know how to speed it up, I also figured out how to do the config display:

I'm not lewpy but....

Draw Method | MultiPass |

Change that to bright, multipass is slow even on my duron 900 I lose frames.

Off-Screen Drawing | Disabled |
at least this to extra, no performance hit, and you are missing things without it.

Texture Windows | Faked |
shouldn't be fake for most games (99.9% of them)

VSync | Enabled |
turn this off, you should get better speed

Banshee Code | Enabled |
you have a voodoo 5, turn this off....

CDROM Accurate Timing | Yes |
Disable CDROM Status | Yes |

These 2 can also slow ePSXe down, set them to no if at all possible.especially the accurate cdrom timing, it make ePSXe, wait (If the cdrom drive is slow) or the cdrom drive wait (if the cdrom drive is fast)
