I'm having some problems playing Chrono Cross on the latest version of ePSXe. Most of the game works well, but there are several major problems, including some noticeable slow-downs and graphics glitches. Here are my system-specs:

Athlon Thunderbird 1Ghz
Creative Labs 3D Annihilator 2 (GeForce 2 GTS)
Soundblaster AWE64 :)eek: ! Yes, this is ISA)

I'm using the nVidia Reference drivers, Detonator3 v14.61, because I have Windows XP, and the latest version of the Detonator4 drivers actually managed to crash my computer like 4 times, until I booted up in VGA mode and reinstalled the 14.61 drivers. To put it simply, nVidia's latest drivers suck compared to the older ones.

I use these plugins:

Plugin: Pete's OpenGL Driver 1.1.55

Pete's DSound Audio Driver 1.2

The first problem I have is some rather noticeable graphics glitches while going into fight scenes. It used to slow down when this happened, until I enabled Frame Skipping. The next thing, was when [Early Game Spoiler] the Prophet of Time talks to you in the library, with Marcy, [/Spoiler] the little cutscene screws up. Like, the people will be there, and you can see the maps at the bottom, but about 80% of the top of the screen is black, including where the people are standing. I was using the Eternal SPU, until the [Early Game Spoiler:] movie right after the first time you fight Lynx, [/Spoiler] and the sound there didn't work. The Eternal SPU didn't play any sound, and Null2's caused some buzzing noises. This got fixed when I switched to Pete's, but Pete's screws up in some other places. Does anyone know how to fix these problems? Thanks in advance.
