I've tried using the troubleshooter and checking the forums, online in general, for what causes the black screen. Still having that issue in particular. The BIOS loads fine, running the ISO is a problem, unable to run as CDROM as well. With Pete3D3 I get a simple black screen. Was told PeteOpenGL2 fixed most black screen issues, so I got that plugin instead. Only difference is that now there is a playstation controller icon in the top right. Considered it may be a problem with the download of epsxe, so I reinstalled it, same problem, BIOS still runs fine. I'd think it was the image, but I've run this game a couple years back and it worked fine, however I think this was an issue then too, just don't remember the fix.

Enabled logs, this came up.

* Running ePSXe emulator version 1.7.0
* Memory handlers init.
* ePSXe: PSX BIOS loaded [bios\SCPH1001.BIN].
* Loading CUE File ok
* Loading ISO Format [MDF/BIN/IMG2352] ok
* First/Last track: 1 2
* Track 1: <DATA> - Start 1: <00,02,00> - Length 30:40
* Track 2: <AUDIO> - Start 2: <30,46,40> - Length 03:20
* NTSC cdrom detected. <SLU__000.00>
* Doing init gpu[0]...
* Gpu open[0]...
* Direct input init ok.
* Init core spu ... ok

The above is upon attempting to run the .cue file to play the game.
I've also tried mounting the image in Daemon Tools, no gain.

Also, although I can get the BIOS to run, in the log, an error seems to flood alot before resolving.

* scsi command erroer = 1117 handle = 000000C4
and also, before the flood of that ends,
* gettrackinfo error[4]


Windows XP
AMD Sempron(tm) 3000+
2.00 GHz, 512 MB RAM

sure thats incomplete, can't think of how else to get the rest.
any advice is good advice at this point. I'd just like to play monster rancher 2 again.

gfx plugins neither cause, nor fix black screen issues.

bad rip, or ripped without the required subchannel reads, most likely.
