I would so greatly appreciate it if someone could help me out.

Problem:

Mostly a speed issue. It goes at a normal speed most of the time. It slows down a little when I'm in the menu and quite a bit for the battle splash screen, but I'm not concerned about that. What's bothering me is during FMVs and battles it goes waaaaaaaaaaay too fast. I guess I should be thankful that it's playable, but it really kills the mood during the more important battles when everybody and the music is going so fast it's almost funny. I do like my boss battles.

I'm trying to slow them down without bogging down the rest of the game. God forbid those splash screens get any slower. I used to have my settings absolutely perfect, so I know it's possible for my computer, but I fudged them up somehow.


My Stuff:

EDIT:


I'm sorry! I found a file where I pasted my old settings and now everything is dandy. I can't believe I wasted all that time trying to figure them out when it was right there the whole time. I'll paste them here in case someone with the same laptop model as me comes along and searches the forums. Also I see now that I posted this in the wrong forum. Sorry again! Some can close this. Heheh.


Here are my current settings:

Battles are a tad slow, but it's almost unnoticeable most of the time.



...in case anyone is reading this before it's closed and has that itch to help someone out, I'm actually curious about something. Is it easier on the computer to run from the game disc, or from an ISO file on the hard drive?

It's just the same for me... same performance... well if you have a bad disc (scratched/damaged) then you know what happens when you try to play :D

IMO iso is good because you'll just have to mount it straight to the epsxe and also i saves your cdrom/dvdrom from damage from those horrible damaged discs...

buy some disc and extract them using alcohol 120 or clonecd etc.
hope this helps
