Hey all,

Every nown and again when I play FFVII, the frame rate limiter suddenly turns off by itself, and I start getting crazy speeds. Since I can't adjust the video settings in-game, I have to restart the emulator (which can be annoying if i'm in between saves).

However, I noticed that if I simply "Esc" back to the GUI, then continue the game, the speed returns to normal (the music plays at regular speed). EXCEPT, the entire screen goes black and remains black so I can't see anything. This, again, forces a restart.

I am running the linux version of ePSXe 1.6, libgpuPeteMesaGL.so.1.0.76, with a GF 5600 Ultra graphics card.

I've tried both playing FFVII from disk (I have the original copy) and ripping it to ISO - both do the same.

Thanks for your help. BTW, great job on a fantastic piece of software!

Matt

hm.. I don't work with linux, but I could give helping you a shot.

if you could give me a screen shot of the plugin config window I could help you a lot better.

I didn't realize you were using linux (tells you how much I read)

Lol, no worries.

The screenshot is here.

Just in case you were up for the challenge, i've found another bug. Sometimes the controlls get "stuck" (ie, the left button gets stuck down), and the only way to solve the problem is to restart ePSXe

Cheers mate

The auto detection might have a hickup there. Try setting the FPS to a fixed value. like 60 if ur game is PAL and 50 if it's NTSC.

And try using another pad plugin for the button-down issue. I had the same thing a while back on linux with epxe. Didnt find a solution as far i can remember..

@Demonsui
You on drugs or something? Could you stop spamming threads if you cant help. -.- Or at least read what your answering to thoroughly.

Thanks guys, I'll give that a go. However, I tried two different keypad plugins, and they both complained that I didn't have a real device to use (i just want the keyboard emulation).

well, I try to help when I can, even if I don't use the bloody OS. I'm good with this kinda thing anyway.

I agree with Hatman. many of the posts you're making are either super generic help that doesnt really do anything, or uninformed. and posts like that are just ridiculous and pointless. so, i am officially warning you, give help only when you know what you're talking about ;) until then, browse a little and learn a little.

seems to me that you don't think I can help anyone that doesn't share what I have, I'm going to prove it to you that I can. I have worked with every operating system except Linux and Unix. however, I'm still able to fix things on them with a little guess and check.

THIS HAS BEEN EDITED TO SHOW CORRECT INFORMATION I appologise that I did not have this ready when I first posted this.
@topic
if you haven't gotten it working yet try this:
use framrate manual and set it to 60 (I set mine to 70, but I run with a crap system)
and turn these auto fixes on: ignore black brightness level and no blue glitches and the odd even hack. That should stop the screen from staying black when you continue. as far as the framerate hit delete when ingame that should bring up a framerate counter, if this does try using page up and page down to go to FL and make it look like this: "###.# *FL< FS DI GF A1 1" (the A1 1 could be different I've seen D1 1 on mine also. Also, you could set GF to *GF, I haven't noticed a difference personally.) This sets the auto framerate on (on windows anyway.) If this does not work please tell me and I'll do some research and see what I can dig up for you.

so uh... Mac OS and Windows? i guess OS/2, Beos...oh there are plenty of OSes out there. the point is, just because you used them all doesnt mean you're an expert with them. and your posts certainly reveal that you basically have no idea what you're talking about.

make it look like this: "*FL<" (it could be "FL*<" too, I don't remember)
you know, you could always fire up ePSXe for like 30 seconds and just see what it says. see, this is where the line is between "good advice" and "crap post". you just suppose, guess, and BS on all your threads. i mean, i picture you chilling at your computer with your feet on your desk and the keyboard on your lap, that's how laid back you are. you know? nothin' wrong with chilling and just BSing---except when people are trying to get help. like ive posted to you before, we have an Open Discussion section where you can BS all you like.

I'm not BSing. but I really didn't know there were alot of OSes, I've only heard about the MAC, Win, Linux, and Unix.

as far as loading the ePSXe, did you read what I wrote, I haven't been at my computer for days, it's not at my house. it's at my grandmother's. and I'm not going back there till monday.

and so as you know, I'm not that relaxed, I wish I could sometimes though, there's those days...

um, yes, you ARE BSing it, because you were like "uhh. its like this..or something else...whatever" which is a pretty good example of BSing if i ever saw one.

and look, you're at a computer. ePSXe and its plugins are less than 5mb. even with 56k, you could quickly download an emulator and plugins if you really cared about giving genuine help to people. but, it seems like you dont, eh?
