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!
