Hi. FF7, in window mode (cause in full window it was reeeeally slow) is very slow. My computer isn't is, because I was playing in other emulator and it was well. And in the battles, the words disapear. What can I do?

what are your computer's specs? what plugins are you using? are you playing off CD or ISO? you'll have to come with a bit more info.

Hmmm...a average computer, I guess.
You MUST use full window mode and other than ePSXe running, ensure that all oter applications are SHUT DOWN.

Post your full plugin specs. Besides, your graphic card model (IMPORTANT!)

From my experience, if you use windowed mode on a average computer, using OGL for intance, might encounter slowness in certain sequences.

So far, Intel Extreme Graphics (I know it suxs...) will NOT encouter this problem.
Only cards like the old ATI Rage, or PCI cards can cause such problems.

He got an FX5200 IMO.

For an average computer, I apply it to Intel Pentium II/III 500~800MHz processors.
Besides, you already have a Pentium IV processor which would not apply here.

I also stated ' Only cards like the old ATI Rage, or PCI cards can cause such problems.'
