what is the crappiest system youve ever run a psx emu on?
mine was a P133 with a trident video card, a soudblaster awe16 (or 32, dont remember) 32 Mb of SDRAM and win95. Oh, I was trying to use epsxe. I got about 5 FPS too.

I think at least a Pentium is REALLY required.

Well, I tried using it on my 486 sx2. It cant run mdecs, and the only game that gets more that 0.1 fps is lunarI, which runs at about 1 to 3 fps. My 486 has a trident card tho, so It might not work on yours.

Dude, it worked on a 486sx? I thought it was impossible even for the emulator to run! how much ram does it have?

I think not even Win9x run in a 386.

Well actually the original win 95 release had a minimium spec of a 386 w/ 4 mb ram (I can hoke out that old review if you need proof). However it is STRONGLY discouraged:p. Hell I had the beta version of 95 running on a not so more powerful 486 sx 25 W/ 4mb ram back in '94. Now THAT was painful.

Man, I had a 486DX2-66MHz with 8mb ram and I didn't want to use win95 because I thought it would be slow. Now I know that it would fly compared to yours.

At school we still have 486DX2-66 with 16mb ram with win95. That's a torture. Sometimes I try to open Internet Explorer 3.0 and the computer almost always crashes with only one explorer window.

yep that probably would be the case. After all the next spec that I had upped the processor to a dx 4 100 w/ 16 mb and it was very stable... except when burning cds. All you had to do was beathe in the general direction to create a $20 coaster.:eyes:

the old psemupro got a few fps with a glide card on my old p75. The game I tried was Midnight Run, some not-so-good Konami Ridge Racer clone with the subname "roadfighter 2" to try to get fans of the old game to try this one too.

note: that worked too...I tried it.
