Hi, a friend of mine has just completed FF9 on his playstation, so I was FINALLY able to borrow it and give it a go on my pc. While it works great with Pete's OpenGL and D3D GPU plugins, I thought I'd give it a try with Pete's Soft plugin (I've got a soft spot for Pete's Soft plugin - excuse the pun
). When I try it though, it just gave me an "illegal operation" error with the following details:
EPSXE caused an invalid page fault in

I thought maybe there was some problem with the intro movie, so I tried to boot the 2nd FF9 disk, but to no avail.
Then I tried Pete's Soft plugin with FF9 on FPSE but the problem persisted. I even tried it on a whole diffirent computer (my old P200) and still got the same result.
This is pretty strange since Pete's Soft plugin was by far the most compatible (being the nearest thing close to real PSX's graphics) with dozens of other games I've tried. Has anyone encountered this kind of problem before ? Any advice ?
