Hey guys, I'm completely new to the forum and it looks like you all are wildly knowledgeable about emulators. I've been looking for somewhere to go for some help. I hope this is it.

I have been trying to run FFVII and FFIX on my laptop with some errors. I am using the CDs, but would like any info on which programs work best for burning ISOs, since I own both these games. Also, if you could list any additional tools needed for this process, I would appreciate it.

Also, I would appreciate any info on how best to run these two games on my laptop. Here are my specs:

Dell Inspiron 6000
Windows XP MCE
Intel Pentium M @ 1.73GHz
Widescreen Display
100GB HD
8x DVD+/-RW

as for making ISOs, check here

anyway, without knowing what errors, i'd say you can use Pete's OpenGL 1.76 (GPU) with the settings below, and Eternal 1.41 for sound.

Im just curious because im new to emulating like this. My only real interest is to play FFVII, FFVIII, and FFIX. I am using Petes OGL2 2.8. Can I use the above settings for all three games? Seems like everywhere says to keep texturing off, if your computer could handle would it be good to turn it on?

those sentences contradict themselves :p you cant use those settings above because they are for OGL, which is completely different than OGL2. and even if you did use OGL, you cant use those settings for all 3 games, well you could but it's not optimal.

anyway, if you want to use OGL2, here are the links for you:


PS. would you please stop jacking other people's threads? i already told you about it in the other thread, and now you went and did it again. it's obvious that you need configuration help, right? so you should've made your own thread. it's ok to keep a thread going if it's about the same thing...but you are on a completely different track.
