try "nice" for OGL2, and default for peops dsound. you should get it pretty good outta that, you can tweak pixel shaders, texture filtering, etc, if you have a nice enough videocard.

in the sound config enable the top 3 choices (sound, cdda, xa) and disable the bottom one (IRQ hack).
As for a sound plugin, Eternal SPU (normal) usually provides better results than PEOPS. No special settings are neccesary unless you are having problems, in which case you should tell us about them.

First, about the crash - I had the same problem, and solved it by switching emulators to sssPSX. The crash does not occur for me with that emulator. There are other drawbacks to using sssPSX:

(1) There is no English documentation. Learn to read Japanese if you want to read the docs (though Google does a pretty good job translating the project website).
(2) It doesn't work as well with some games (for instance, Resident Evil 3 lacks voiceovers).
(3) While it uses PS Emu Pro compatible plugins, it doesn't use the corresponding standard for choosing which plugins to use, so frontends like ePSXeCutor are of limited use with it.
(4) Because of point 1, I haven't been able to figure out how to launch a game without going through its GUI.

On the other hand, Driver doesn't crash in it!

Now, as for plugin settings...I don't know what's the best, but I can tell you what I use:

Driver hangs PSXeven if you restart from Take a Ride.

RE3 - The voiceovers work with Mooby in ePSXe.
In ePSXe - green flashes in MDECs, voiceovers work.
In sssPSX - no green flashes in MDECs, no voiceovers.
In PSXeven - no green flashes in MDECs, voiceovers work.

I just finished verifying the above.

Best in what sense? Far as I'm concerned, the best emulator is the one that works with the game you want to play.

So for most of my games, ePSXe is indeed the best emulator. For two of them, it's sssPSX. And for one it's PSXeven.

After all, it's not like you can only use one.
