And here one pic of this "black line-cartoon" glitch i talked about, its the same on DX7 or OGL2 if you use 2xSal:


As you can see, DX7 looks much better than OGL2 and Stretched looks better than 2xSal, plus that OGL2 takes a MUCH (min. 30sec., DX7 10sec. or less) longer time to load the game and its a little laggy ingame. i mean dx7 looks better, its loading faster and has no laging. why should i use ogl2, huh?

Yes, OGL2 is newer than DX7, but even if it is newer, Chrono Cross wont look better! Sometimes the old stuff rulezz! :p

oh and sry for my quick thread, next time i test a little more and post later :p and yes this would be my real CC config im playing right now, i recommend ePSXe 1.6.0 now...

Yeah. I was excited for a second, but this is ridiculously complex (and vaguely suspect), so the game can gather dust for a bit longer.

its the complete ePSXe 1.5.2 + Executor + Plugins + RegFiles (~5MB) i hope it works 4 you... I repacked everything into one folder you need to apply the *.reg Files to register everything inside the Registry or it will not be preconfigurated...
It really worked prefectly for me (after hours of changing the settings)
With D3D its looks and work better/stable than the OGL or OGL2 Plugins...

You should have equal or better systems!
Ex: It should work on "fireblaster_lyz's" system, i have a Sempron (2200+) too, only 256DDR-Ram and a ATi 9600 Pro 256MB, his system is equal and a little better...

greets from germany ^^

tonight i will fix some stuff with Chrono Cross, i found new "bugs". some pixel got transparent, sound lag on screen change and other bugs like the battle/menu text (looks a little weird) or some 2D Textures are too pixlized...

already fixed all this stuff, but i need to test some more =)

You should put together a guide on how to fix specific problems. I do not feel like downloading suspicious files and neither do a lot of other people.

good god that is confusing. i glanced over this thread in its ORIGINAL state and it was supremely confusing (but i still understood it somehow) and yet i left it alone, only to come back to see this. goodness gracious, please either:

A. paste to clipboard your settings
B. screenshot

or a combination of both. the way you have it makes it to ugly and too difficult to read.

messiahgov, I have a system similar to yours and I get slowdowns (outside of battle though) occasionally. It seems to occur a lot with certain effects like fire and glittering. Do you know anything about that?

LOL Guyver2K5, you used 2xSal, its normal that it will look like this
Take "Strechted" will look much better!
On 2xSal all Text will look UGLY with CC...

I must digress that OpenGl2 looks much better than DX7 ever possibly can. If you happen to have a Nvidia card, u can utilize an internal x resolution of 2. this beautifies the game quite a bit with the extra resolution. couple this with streched filtering and u can not make it look much better. i also recently discovered the absolute neccesity of having the odd/even bit hack turned on. my game kept freezing everytime i attempted to look up my party's status. as soon as i enabled the game worked just fine. also, i personally enjoy keep the psx aspect ratio on, although this is a matter of personal taste.

what setting should I use with OGL2 2.8?
I cant seem to get rid of little slowdowns.

DX7 seems to best for everything other than battles.
If only I could use 2 plugins at once?
