Hello everyone.
I'm trying to play BOF4 using VGS 1.41. At first, it seemed to run smoothly. In my opinion, the game is quite playable with VGS. But there are certain problem occurs when I'm playing it.
When battle ends, the game seemed to lock up for quite a time, not until I press ESC many times, so that my CD-ROM would read the CD. The same problem also occurs at some point which the game would refers to the CD to load data (in my opinion), for example when entering cities or battles. My sense told me that there are some problem involving the CD-ROM or anything close to it. Because of that, I tried to make an ISO of the game and play it using Daemon Tools. I also had the games.txt file in my VGS directory (I always do). Sadly the problem isn't solved.
So, questions filled my head. Do you need certain type of CD-ROM to run VGS? Is anybody faced the same problem like mine? Last but not least, has anyone finished the game using VGS? Although I already finished it using PSX console, I would like to try it again using my PC instead.
Any opinion is highly appreciated. Thank you.

I don't think there's a patch for BoF4 other than games.txt.....

I played it for a while, but I didn't finish it due to lack of time. however, I didn't notice any problems.

I've tried it

Hello everyone.
Yes, I have the patch in the same directory with the VGS 1.41. But the problem still occurs. In fact, the same problem happens when playing some other game as well. Any other suggestion? Thanx.

The same thing happened to me, not in BoF4 thouh, but in Super Robot Wars Alpha. So i'm thinking, maybe you should play it through a bin/cuesheet + Daemon.

Still the same

Hello everyone.
Well, like I said before. I did make the ISO of the game, load the cuesheet and play it using Daemon, but the problem remains. Or are you suggesting that there are other method using Daemon? I'm beginning to think that this has nothing to do with the CD-ROM as playing directly from hard disc still doesn't solve the problem, or maybe the problem come from my CD itself. I think that I should just give up and try ePSXe, or play another game instead. Thanks a lot to all for the suggestions and hints.

Hi everyone :)

I don't know about gametxt.. but when i try using gametxt (patch) with my vgs. I try playing with Xenogear games.. when in the battle sequence with deus i found my vgs stop didn't working
and i try a lot to do... such as i make an iso rather than using the cd, but the problem also occurs... and i try updating the patch using gametext v1.25 (even in gametxt stated the xenogear) also still the same problem..
and then.. i try my last solving that i took out my gametxt patch and start the vgs without using any patch.. and it works!!!!
kinda odd.. don't you think?

i haven't try with breath of fire 4 games.. but maybe you can try it..

Thanks

My VGS doesn't load BoF4... :(
It gives a "Loading game" text, but nothing happens... It runs well with ePSXe, but my PC isn't too fast for that emu.

Any suggestions?
