I moved away from home, leaving my psx games with my dad (who bought the playstation...) .. I can't afford to buy one yet, but I want to play FF8 and 9 (step-brother's).

I downloaded ePSXe, and borrowed the discs, it plays fine up until I am in a battle. Then there is no text on the battle menus. (Fight wouldn't be so bad, but it'd be fairly hard to cast a spell ;)

I've been trying to figure out if I need to rip it and patch the ISO, what patch to use, where to get it, etc... help would be greatly appreciated ;)

I'm unfamiliar with PSX emulators in particular, but I am a quick learner... if there is a link to a site or FAQ that explains how to get up and going as far as PSX emulation, that would suffice :)

System specs:
Win2000 / Linux Slackware 7.1 dual boot
17 gigs free (could probably free another 20 :p)
Gigabyte 7IXE Motherboard
AMD Thunderbird 1000mhz processor
768mb PC133 SDRAM
Yamaha 8x8x24 CD-writer (I use as my cd-rom drive as well)
Voodoo3 3000 video card
SB Live! Value sound card

* ePSXe gives me 60 fps woohoo :)

hey myndzi,

I had the exact same processor and video card a while back... Now I got a voodoo 5 5500 agp.... You only use a patch on the games if they are the versions that don't work without the patch in epsxe.. Ie..some pal versions of FF9 dont work unless you patch them.. If you are running english versions of the games then you wont need one.... but if you are not running NTSC versions of FF9, then go search for "psx patches" in alta vista or You should be able to find em and the info on how to patch em..
