Perhaps this pertains more to ePSXe, but maybe it is w/my sound card, so I am posting this here. I did a fresh, clean, reinstall of Win 98 last night. I tested ePSXe w/it and it worked fine, except for the sound. I was playing Gauntlet Legends (my favorite) and the SFX were missing or only partially there. I made it through the first level that I tried, but then on the next level that i tried I got an illegal operation and when I looked at it, it said "ePSXe has caused an illegal page fault in ePSXe.exe". So, I'm wondering if this could be due to my sound card or the SPU I'm using. I was using the internal (built in) SPU , my card is a Sound Blaster Live Value, and I have the lastest drivers and Live Ware 3.0 installed. I'm using DX 8.1. Does this sound like a sound card or SPU issue? I seem to recall that, a while back, it was mentioned that ePSXe could have problems w/SB Live sound cards. If anyone has any ideas, then I would appriecate hearing what they are. I'm going to try some other games, SPUs, and even try turing the sound off. This should give me a pretty good idea of what may be happening. Thanks in advance for any help.
