Hey y'all, Airman First Class Jack Wilson here...

I've been messing around with ePSXe for a few hours now and got some pretty interesting results! I absolutely love the program, it works great. But I'm trying to play Chrono Cross, you see, and I got the game running and all that, without the black screen, etc. but I had a problem where it ran EXTREMELY fast and whenever I selected the rumble function I got a black screen.

After some research I got past the black screen and fixed the speed problem, or so I thought...

The movies and such run fine, flawlessly, actually, but the gameplay runs rather fast, faster than it should. The graphics and such are fine, better than they looked on my actual PSX, but for some reason, the gameplay seems to be running really fast. I have my emulator set to only use 60 frames per second, but if I lower it below 60, the movies get really choppy!

Is there anyone who can help? Here are my settings...

Are you using linux? I heard this before. FPS detection seems to have a "hickup" in linux sometimes. Anyway try to use the onscreen display. Maybe it works if you turn the fps limit off and on again while running the game.

Del: show/hide OSD
Page Up/Down: Cycle through options
Home/End: Change current option

The FPS limit option is the first from the left and should cycle through Off/Auto/Set Value.

yeah ePSXe 1.6.0 does that. you can either switch back to 1.5.2 or use the -noauto command IIRC


Right click the ePSXe shortcut and go to properties.
in the target box add -noauto

like this ie.:
"C:\ePSXe\ePSXe.exe" -noauto
That fixed it. It also stopped my game from crashing when I tried using elements!

I owe you, now I have something to play on this boring base!
