possibly, no, undoubtedly repeating a thread that was already around, but when I searched for stuff involving it through the boards and the readme, I didn't find anything that helped, so I'll just start a new thread.....

Anyway, my problems are with Final Fantasy VII and IX, as well as Metal Gear Solid....while I'm playing (I'll get to the specific scenes in a little bit), the game just crashes out completely, no opcode error or anything...

Scenes this happens in:
FF7: Right as one of those AVALANCHE members (I think wedge, the fat one, you know, him :)) blows up the door out of a, sewer I guess, immediately after you bomb the first reactor...this is where a FMV should be playing, so maybe it's that....

FF9: Immediately after the Festival of the Hunt, when you're about to go eat before setting out for Burmecia...after the screen from the throne room is fading to the dining room, it crashes....

Metal Gear Solid: When you're talking to Donald Anderson, as it's about to switch to Snake's apparent Flashback of Metal Gear, it crashes....

My system specs are pitiful compared to what I've seen you guys have, but what can I say, I'm a cheap bastard....
600 Mhz Celeron
15 Gigs HD (does that really matter?)
192 Megs RAM (whatever clock speed goes with 600 mhz, I think PC 100)
Windows ME, if that's relevant...

I've used all the video plugins that came with PSEmu that I now try with ePSXe, as well as Pete's D3D v. 1.5 and Segu's latest D3D driver...

I'm using the internal SPU, though I've also tried Pete's latest Directsound driver, as well as the Seal 0.8 driver and the Kazzuya driver that came with PSEmu before I downloaded ePSXe....

That's pretty much it...I've tweaked with every option on every plugin I've mentioned, but to no avail....oh, and please don't get mad at me if I'm repeating a post, I didn't see a working answer on the readme, or the boards.

Are you sure you're using ePSXe 1.4.0,cause the crash you describe about FF7 and MGS are crashes that occured in 1.2.0 but not in 1.4.0(well,actually MGS crashes just after what you said but....it's a new crash point!)

err, sorry for the long silence, just wasn't able to come to the boards for a few days...here's my graphic configuration from a screenshot I took...

Plugin: Pete's D3D Driver 1.1.50
Author: Pete Bernert

Resolution/Color:
- 640x480 Fullscreen - [16 Bit]

Textures:
- R4G4B4A4
- Filtering: 2
- Caching: 2 - 125 textures usable

Framerate:
- FPS limit: on
- Frame skipping: off
- FPS limit: Auto

Compatibility:
- Offscreen drawing: 2
- Framebuffer texture: 2
- Alpha multipass: on
- Mask bit: off
- Advanced blending: hardware

Misc:
- Scanlines: off
- Unfiltered FB: off
- Dithering: on
- Full vram: off
- Game fixes: on [00000100]

Besides that, the audio is the internal SPU with all the little checks, well, checked...of course, the SPU says 1.2.0 even though I was pretty sure I downloaded 1.4.0...well, I DL it again.

Thanks for your help.

I think it's windows ME's problem
you don't want change to windows 98 or VGS for ff9, maybe is your video card, what's the card u r using?

Why would it be WinME?
Maybe WinME is unstable,but it doesn't have such incompatibility.

*want to note that every kind of driver he's used (OGL, D3D, Software) etc. makes no difference*

But anyway, I have the cheap Intel card that came with the PC...like I said, I'm cheap (mainly because I don't have a job), and my father is refusing to spend money on a new videocard, so I'm stuck with it....and no I don't plan on getting a job ;)

my dad never buy anything for my computer, so i bought my self 128 MB 133 MHz today, now i have 192 MB of ram. i'm saving up money for a new video card, and it will takes awile. Too bad u don't got a job but TNT2 is a nice card and cost $110 right now, u shouldn't have a problem of buying it.

TNT2 is outdated.
The only card which is interesting on a price/quality view is the GeForce2 mx.

One more proof of your incredible genius.

TNT2 card is cheap, that guy don't have much money to spend, so i think TNT2 card is worth buying, I also heard other people saying TNT2 card playing games perfectly for ff9 on ePSXe.

It would be hard since you deleted the post cause you feared a mod would see it.

Hate to sound like a fith wheal, but i must agreee, im getting real sick and tired of having to wade through both of your posts. Even though i have a very good idea of WHO exactly started this, ill not mention any names. Sufice it to say, I would realy apreciate a cease fire, or at least continue the battle somewhere else.

Thank you.
