I have ffix working on my computer fine except the game slows down during points where it's "thinking" ie: after finishing a battle, while making commands during a battle. Is this normal? If not, how do I fix it? BTW, it's a NTSC version.
It's sorta normal.. Even on my tbird gig it slows down after battles.. Not that much, but still noticeable.. Those points are where the game is trying to load something.. Make an iso to speed up the process and lessen the effects..
Well I was hoping for your plug-in settings as well. Now load times are standard, but when making commands during a battle, that one seems rather odd. You also didn't post what your video card was. You can try the making of an iso to see what happens as 5'8 suggested.
try playing at a lower resolution.. Preferably 640x480.. Of course this is pretty much explained in the FF9 FAQS.. Do a search of the epsxe board for em.. Battle menus and the option menus slow down if:
a. You play at a high resolution..
b. You computer isn't fast enough..
Your fps should be at 60 for ntsc games and 50 for Pal games.. If it deviates to lower Fps then lower your resolution..
