Game seems to work absolutely fine other than battles being annoyingly slow. I'm using ePSXe 1.7.0 and using Pete's OpenGL 1.58. I'm also playing from an ISO. I really don't want to switch drivers unless I absolutely have to as it took me ages to get the game to work as much as it does. Here's a pic of the config. screen:




Any takers? Please? T__T

there are numerous things i can suggest here but before i do post your system specs and make sure all your drivers, specifically your display driver, are up-to-date.

edit- get the updated version of that plugin too as that could be part of the problem, the link is below.

EDIT: Tried using Pete's OpenGL 2.2 but I get an error no matter what settings I use the moment I started the game up and it messes my resolution up slightly too. >__<

Also, my drivers are up to date.

that video chip doesn't have OGL1.5 so it won't run that plugin.

get the OpenGL or Direct3D 1.77 plugins

Thanks, but I'm using OpenGL already. I'll try Direct3D.

EDIT: I've switched to Direct3D, and it's improved a lot but it's still got a fair bit of slowdown with battles where it dips in and out proper speed and about 50% speed which is still quite annoying.
I'm using these settings with Direct3D:




Any other suggestions?

use the D3D6 plugin, your video chip doesn't support Dx7 in hardware.

Or if your having a hard time setting up plugins or dont know much about hardware pSX Emu is very user friendly and should work without problems for you.

onboard video just isnt really intended for 3d rendering, its usually for 2d stuff- typical desktop work and such. if by chance you have an empty PCI/PCI-E or AGP slot on your mobo you could buy a fairly nice add-in video card for under $100, (probably even less than 50 if you shop around) and it would improve things quite a bit.

A 6800 pci (around $50) will give you a VERY noticeable boost. Or, if your board supports pcie, an $70 2600xt or 8600gts will really get things moving.

On the other hand, my onboard 950GMA could pull 105 FPS with my 1.6ghz dou in my laptop
