On slower processor based machines, Kane's settings don't usually work best (mainly, the framebuffer access he has reccomended to 4 will be too much for your CPU). Try these if his reccomendations don't work.

Plugin: Pete's OpenGL Driver 1.1.75 (OpenGL 2.6 is WAY too much for your video card)
Author: Pete Bernert
Card vendor: NVIDIA Corporation

- 640x480 Fullscreen - NO desktop changing [32 Bit]
- Keep psx aspect ratio: off

- R8G8B8A8 (not the faster labeled one, that works faster for ATI cards)
- Filtering: 5 (this is my preference, many others prefer 4 instead, but 5 makes text less pixelated)
- Hi-Res textures: 0
- VRam size: 64 MBytes (adjust if different)

- FPS limitation: on
- Frame skipping: off
- FPS limit: Auto

- Offscreen drawing: 3
- Framebuffer texture: 2
- Framebuffer access: 0
- Alpha multipass: on
- Mask bit: off
- Advanced blending: on

- Scanlines: off
- Line mode: off
- Unfiltered FB: off
- 15 bit FB: off
- Dithering: off

ok, first thanks for all of the advice. I have tried all of the different plugins, and had the exact same problem with every one. After the blur,( which lags on me, by the way), screen goes black, I can hear the music, and it stays black.

Wondering if I need a different emu or something?
If I remember correctly, on Kane's site, he mentions something of the Swirls on the world map being "slow" no matter what in OpenGL 1.7.5. Here's what I found on it.

Also, I noticed you said you updated the drivers a while back. With a GeForce2, perhaps you should use an older driver (something intended for the GeForce4 family maybe). The newer drivers only update the newer features for all the latest cards, so you would see no difference (it might actually cause problems). Also, are you running all this from the disc or an ISO? Your computer should be able to run it, but I'm thinking it's a driver issue.
