My ePSXe runs to fast even with the fps limit on. It says it's running at 60 fps, but it's more like 200. However, when I turn one of my cores off it runs perfectly, but I have to go in and turn one of the cores off every time I go to play. Anyone know of a way to run ePSXe with only one core permanently?

what cpu brand, AMD or intel? there is a way to manually set it to one core all the time but its rather complicated and depending on your cpu brand there might be a different work-around i know of that you could use instead. btw what version of epsxe are you using? in 1.7.0 you should not have speed issues with a dual core cpu.

taken from AMD's site-

The AMD Dual-Core Optimizer can help improve some PC gaming video performance by compensating for those applications that bypass the Windows API for timing by directly using the RDTSC (Read Time Stamp Counter) instruction. Applications that rely on RDTSC do not benefit from the logic in the operating system to properly account for the affect of power management mechanisms on the rate at which a processor core's Time Stamp Counter (TSC) is incremented. The AMD Dual-Core Optimizer helps to correct the resulting video performance effects or other incorrect timing effects that these applications may experience on dual-core processor systems, by periodically adjusting the core time-stamp-counters, so that they are synchronized.
epsxe just-so happens to be one of the applications that have speed issues with some of their dual core processors.
