Maybe......

Hmmm,

In my experience (on several PC's) even though the VGS FF IX patch will get you so far you will still eventually run into problems. Either there will be random lockups or failure to load at certain segemnts. The only way I have found around this is to move past trouble spots in another emulator. Specifically ePSXe.
By jostling the memcards around (you can find tolls to do this as aldostools.com as well)it makes it fairly easy althoug annoying to do this. Overall if you follow the FF IX FAQ at this site you may find it to be a better experience overall.

i've observed that different discs have different trouble spots, particularly in kalisto discs. but most of them can be patched by games.txt and the psytek patch. most people seem to mention the cleyra tree as the first problem they'll run into.

I've encountered no actual "trouble spots" with the patched VGS and FF9 but I have found some problems with the program. One of two things happen to me, either the battle commands get messed up (all attacks are directed at the party) in which case you have no choice but to run or the program will just spontaneously dump you back into Windows. But I found that the problems are completely random, not specific points of trouble. I've been able to play through FF9 with VGS alone.

hey!

why don't you play it on epsxe for a while? maybe it is too slow (remit to the thread epsxe is too slow, HELP ME!) so, just play it until you can save, then save (doh!) because epsxe is more stable with it, and it can save in VGS format, if you want to, if saving in VGS format, does not work, use a tool for it download in this page.

epsxe will not solve that glitch, it is because you are playing one of K*l*s*o's releases that's why youre experiencing that fmv glitch. Maruko in aldo's forums has described a way to get around this glitch. it involves a ppf patcher i think.
