Lewpy Glide for Voodoo3
Null2 sound
Internal CDROM plugin(Pete's seem to slow it down for me)

First it seemed like it was my sound setting, so I tried buffer length and blocks in all combos with no luck. SPU IRQ Hack doesn't seem to matter.

Sound effects are ok but the background music is killing me. On the map, things are "ok" until I choose a race and I'm at the "before the race" screen. Then it's really choppy like "beep -- beep -- beep ..." and when the race actually starts, it's like "ba ba ba ba ba ...". Looking at my cd rom drive, it looks as if it's reading a single note at a time turning on and off, starting and stoping, etc.

Any ideas?

I tried your suggestions with no avail.

Maybe it is my system:

AMD K6-III 400 with 160MB RAM
Voodoo3 2000 PCI <--- yes PCI

the thing is the game itself is playable without the background music. I get constant ~45 fps across all resolutions starting from 320x200 to 1024x768. That's weird.

And I've tried couple of other games as well.
Tekken 3 has exactly the same problem. Maybe worse since every 5 seconds it will stop and continue.

Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo and Final Fantasy Tactics are un-playable. FPS is around ~19. Understandable if we assume that my machine is too slow since Voodoo3 is a 3D card not a 2D.

Will you be confirming that my machine is too slow and I am going to have to wait until I get a new machine to use ePSXe?

I have a Pioneer 105S DVD and a Mitsumi CDR which both of them rate at 40x and 16x+ respectively for CDs I think.

ISO's might help but I am not too fond of having all my CDs living on my hard drive.:confused:
