Ok, just tried that. Its working a little better now, which is weird becasue I've tried that before . . .
Also can sound configuration make a difference on the game performance? (using eternal SPU Plugin 1.41)
And finally . . .
Under Select/ Config Main Video plugin (I'm using Pete's OpenGL2 Driver 2.9) there is the Configure Soft Video plugin in option which when i click on it opens up P.E.Op.S Soft Driver 1.17. Is that supposed to be there? Could it be that since both are--im going to guess--running, that they might both be bogging down the game play causing lag?
