I tried the other threads that related to skipping FMV's and none of the solutions helped, so I thought i'd ask here. The game itself runs fine off of the cd's and the iso's.
The only problem is the fmv's. I get random freezes in the middle of them. The console says it's a cd error, but the ISO's I made from the cd's do not have the freezing.
Only problem with playing it from the ISO's, though, is that the game will crash and exit to desktop at seemingly random times...

any thoughts on this?
Oh! and is there any reason I should be using 1.6 instead of 1.52? Seems the earlier version is much more stable...

seems that your cd has few scatches too much...
did you try the method with console command?? (you can find it in help files attached to ePSXe )

erm he said he did :p

In any case the cd read errors would indeed suggest the disk is damaged.... and my guess is that the iso created from it are faulty as well. Try redoing the image using alcohol 120% (I haven't used this personally but other on this forum recommend it for really subborn disks :p )

For FFO stick to 1.5.2 you may have controller issues otherwise (or was that for FFA...)

for most square games (and all FF games AFAIK) you should stick to 1.5.2.
