As my topic says, when I play with epsxe and return to windows, all my transfers (upload and download) have crahsed to between 0.03 and 0.01kb/s OR are dead/idle.

Any clue why this could be happening? possible I need to limit the cpu use of the emu to leave some for my pc?

Thanks for all the help lately all. Really appreciate it
You guys all rock

Dunno why but it happens to me too...
not just the epsxe but even happens when i play
zsnes...i think it's impossible to play the emulator
and d/l or upload at the same time..
neither ur set the priority nor limited the resource
will help..SO..gotta be concentrated on something..ain't we?;)

I do this all the time and don't see such a behavior.

Hmm, that's strange, I download things all the time while playing games and I don't see any drop in bandwidth. I have a Pentium 3 700E with 128 MB of PC100 RAM and a Diamond Viper V770 (nVidia TNT2 chipset) and I have cable internet access. My guess is it has to do something with the internet software (if any) and the type of program/emulator. True, a program like ZSNES of EPSXE sucks up a lot of CPU time, but it still shouldn't slow/stop file transfers. Hmm, for Win2K users, maybe you could try shifting CPU power to background applications (as opposed to the currently running programs, as is by default) and see if it changes things.

RedJacket: What 56K modem is it? Winmodems are software based and use MMX and some CPU power to function. Maybe running emulators are putting too much stress on the CPU for the modem to function properly (although I doubt it)

To Demigod79.:) the 56K i mentioned is one kind of
connectin to internet..maybe the slower one nowadays..

it won't effect if using the cable or T1..guess i'm right:p

RedJacket,

what Demigod79 is asking is rather your modem is a "winmodem" or a hardware modem. A 56kbps phoneline modem can be either one of those types.

usually if it's a winmodem, the user manual or the box should say so.

it is quite important because winmodems use considerably more system resources (CPU, bus, even memory) than conventional hardware modems. It would make sense if an emulator affects the performance of a winmodem.
