Hey guys, I've got yet another problem. This one is just an annoyance as well. Basically, I was just wondering if it was normal to have some slowdown on loading? This occurs in most games for me, usually RPG's like FFIX or Chrono Cross. Basically, there's major slowdown when a random battle starts (both in music and video), and this goes for switching areas as well. Is there anyway to remedy this, or is this normal? I've got a pretty good pc, Pentium 4 2.5 GHz, 1000 MB RAM, and a Radeon 9800 xp pro. Thanks!
I'm actually running from both iso and game diskcs. IE: I've used game discs for FFIX, and the iso for Chrono Cross. As far as plugins, I'm using Pete's OpenGL (the "nice" default setting, only I maximized frame buffer textures and access), and for sound, I'm using Eternal SPU Plugin with the default settings.
