Please give us more details of your system specifications.
Hardware config, ePSXE plugin config, which operating system, etc etc etc.
Trying to troubleshoot a problem without knowing these is like trying to shoot a bat on a foggy night.

Recommend upgrading to pete's 1.51 plug-in, also highly recommend checking to see if all your drivers for your video card & sound card & what-not are upgraded.

Well if it tells what it is getting the error in that would help. Uninstall epsxe and delete the registry entries, reinstall, defragment your hard drive, run a virus scan. Update your sound drivers if possible.

The next thing i'd try is a different bios. Yours maybe corrupt or something (although that usually only terminates the emulator but wortha shot.) If not I'd go with problems on the system. Do you have any other simingly unrelated errors in other programs? games maybe?

You can use CDRWIN (from www.goldenhawk.com) to make ISOs. When you run CDRWIN, click the 3rd button along on the top row, choose your CD drive letter, and type in gamename.bin in the filename box (change gamename to the name of your game.)

As for your main problem, try moving all your plugins to another folder and just put back the ones you need eg. Pete's OpenGL 1.51, and your sound plugin, then try ePSXe again. If that dont work, try using Pete's D3D driver, that dont work then try to get a screenshot of ePSXe's DOS window and post it in here, it may show some error message that somebody here might know about. Hope this helps. :)

:confused: Ok. So its only 2 games that crash and only then at specific instances and on both occasions you get a BSOD telling you that the emu has caused an error in itself... If it wasn't for the fact that one of the games is mgs my guess would be that you have stumbled accross a bug :eek: .
