I've tried both 1.52 and 1.60 of ePSXe, and PSXeven and every time I try and run them, they crash. I'm running a CD of Chrono Cross and tried to do the same with FF7. They're both legit versions. I'm doing Pete's OpenGL and tried about 3 versions of that. I've tried a handful of CD plugins, now attempting with xeven. I start it up, and the log rolls through saying ASPI was not available and that it'll use IOCTL. It opens the CD and says some other stuff. Then opens the GPU and SPU and both work. It says digital pad enabled, and dies. Anybody? It's SCPH1001.

Still no. Now it says aspi available, using ASPI. But it don't work none. It also says that it found the cd in drive: 0:0:0. Don't know if that's weird or not. Die right after the digital pad is enabled. Is there a way to copy out my log file? Would that even help?

unless you're using windows 98 or ME, dont use ASPI. use IOCTL SCSI read in the first place. try Sapu's (auto configuring, like Xeven's) or use Peops (more to configure but it has worked better for me)

Tried Sapu's. Still dies after pad digital. It doesn't say anything about ASPI or anything like that, so not sure what it's doing. But whatever it's doing, it isn't working.

ok well under interface type, make sure you choose IOCTL SCSI...

have you tried PSXeven or SSSPSX?

I tried PSXeven. I just threw in PEOPS video plugin instead of the older Pete's OpenGL and it seems to run. Albeit a bit sluggishly. My machine is pretty nice, I've got a 3.0ghz P4, a x800xl, and 2gb of RAM. Should it be chugging at all, even on the highest settings of the video plugin? The video runs fine, it's the sound that goes chuggy when things change. I.E. in Chrono Cross when I enter/exit areas or start talking to people the sound F's up.

ok, go to www.ati.com and update your graphics drivers. try just making an ISO for the game, that bypasses the CD problem altogether. you can definitely use Pete's OGL2 with your gfx card.

My graphics drivers be updated. I'm running the newest version of the Omega Drivers, actually. Would the CD be causing the jumpiness or is that the vid card? I suppose I could go process of elimination on it.

it could also be the sound, which sound plugin are you using? (i'd recommend eternal spu).

Running from the cd can slow the video down, since it's most likely synchronized with loading data (ps1 games like to load data on the fly, esp. square games... having an ISO will speed the data retrieval up quite a bit).
