Have you tried enabling the 'Odd even bit hack' special game fix in the video plugin and special game fixes?

This happened to me too, I don't know what it is. Are you using the -noauto command line? Because I am not sure if I did it correctly. I typed -noauto at the end of the epsxe target line, but it is outside of the quotes and I am not sure if it is supposed to be in the quotes. The compatibility list on this site says you must use -noauto.

He said he's using OGL2.6!
Try changing both Frame Buffer things... When I used OGL1, certain frame buffer settings will cause the menu to greatly drop the frame rate, making it seems crashed.

I'm positive the emulator crashes (the FPS from fraps shows a constant 60, I left it there for a minute).

I tried using ePSXe 1.6.0. in combination with the OpenGl 1.75 plugin and now it works somehow, although the performance is still really slow in certain scenes even without framebuffer effects.

The game runs at a steady framerate, but there are noticeable slowdowns with certain effects on the screen (with both the D3D and OpenGL plugins).

An example of this early in the game: start a new game several times until you get the blue mermaid. Then walk around in the first area of the game. I think that 2D animation on her tail is what causes the slowdown. This is true for all effects in the game that are similar (and there are a lot of those).

Are you talking about Irenes? I don't remember 2D effects...oO What resolution are you running at (and did you install the catalyst driver)? It worked fine when I used OGL with 800MHz PIII and Geforce3TI200 at 640x480.

Hope it's not the cpu... 9700pro with <800MHz cpu? :heh:

The mermaid (Irenes) has a purple glittering effect at the end of her fin which I believe is causing the slow down, as are certain other effects like fire.
