Hey fellas.. Im been using emulators for awhile but this is the first time ive used a psx emulator.. Well i was searching for the best one and they said that psxeven was the best to play FF8 on.. And i have the game so I running the Cd-rom if this helps if some one can answer my question.. Well last night i was setting everything up and got the game to work.. Well this morning i tryed it again and i couldnt get past the opening movie it would stop at the white screen and not go anywere.. This is the error message i got since it debugs it self WARNING: high interrupt latency at PC: 0x8001f5c8 I dont have alot of RAM on this Pc and i think thats the prob but since i got it running last night i could be able to get it running again.. if someone could help me id really really apperciate it... Also if you think i should be using a diff emulator to play this or anything that will help.. Thank you very much..

Also i tried to clean my disk with Cd Doctor but no go..

There's a lot to deal with here. Here comes a list: :)
  • There is some advice >>> HERE <<< for basic emulator troubleshooting.
  • High interrupt latency sounds like something that comes up with PSXeven a lot. It's either something you can ignore, or it's a read error on your disk.
  • There are several configs (including my own) for FF8 posted on this website. Go up to the PSX Emulation level and use the search function there, with keywords FF8 config. My config is >>> HERE <<<
  • Posting your PC's specs would help
  • Posting your config details would help
  • I'm using the sssPSX emulator. I've only gotten as far as the beginning of the first "away mission", but it's worked great up to that point
  • CD Doctor ... shudder ... it's not that it's a bad product; I have one and use it myself on the occasional used-and-scratched game I buy. But I'm a trained professional, do not try this at home. Seriously, a CD (DVD, Game, whatever) Doctor must be used very carefully or you can make a disk worse. Here comes a list of tips for safe usage of xDoctor:
    • First make sure you're not wasting your time. Check for label side scratches by holding the disk up to a bright light. If you can see light shining through pinholes or scratches in the reflective layer, you're done mate.
    • In the same vein as the first point, make sure the disk isn't warped. A warped disk can be just as bad as a scratched one.
    • Clean the disk thoroughly before putting it in the tray
    • Do not touch the surface of the disk when putting it in the tray. You'll have to touch the outside edge and the hub's edge to get it in, but be sure to touch nothing else. Never during the entire procedure get skin oils on the surface (i.e. fingerprint oils).
    • When using the xDoctor to grind a layer of plastic off the bottom of the disk, make absolutely certain that you keep the surface you're grinding wet. Use the fluid that came with the xDoctor. Distilled water is an okay substitute.
    • Be sure to grind the disk in both forward and reverse directions for one full 360 degree rotation each (or 2 each, or 3 each, you get the idea). Put a mark on the tray that holds the disk so you can tell when you've gone a full revolution.
    • When removing the disk from the tray after grinding, be very careful not to touch the surface you've just ground. Push up on the disk from beneath so that your fingers touch only the label side. Put your fingers as close to the hub (on the label side) as the tray will let you. As you push up, place the index finger of the other hand on the hub and the other fingers so that when the disk pops out you'll be holding it by one finger in the hub hole and the other fingers by the outer edge
    • Dry thoroughly. If you can, leave the disk for a couple of minutes after drying to allow more water vapor to escape
    • Make sure the disk is on the drying cloth and in turn on a very hard and flat surface when using the felt square to buff out the grind marks.
    • Apply pressure during buffing, but do not allow your fingers to touch the surface of the disk. If you slip - and it's easy to do - clean the disk and re-dry it before resuming buffing.
    • Finally, when you're done buffing, the disk surface should be as smooth as the day it was pressed. You should see only a suggestion of the spiral grind marks.
