Its your cpu dude.. Its bottlenecken your system.. I should know.. I use to have an amd k6-2 533.. Well, use petes d3d pluggin or ogl pluggin and press the "FAST" button in the pluggin config.. Then change settings from that to get to your desired graphics.. Check for a balance between speed and video quality.. You can also try the software pluggins too.. And please read all the documents that come with the pluggins and epsxe.. Then check the epsxe FAQS.. This will help you a lot in configuring epsxe for optimal performance on your system..
yeah, you heard the man... ;)

For a TNT2 I would suggest using Pete's D3D over his OpenGL plugin. It's run a little faster on a TNT for some reason.

here try these settings, it's sorta middle-of-the-road. It's just a little better than the fast settings.
i myself use pete's dx6 d3d and it is almost the psx.
my config:

Plugin: Pete's DX6 D3D Driver 1.1.52

Better try segud3d but its outdated but if the game your running is compatible w/ it its fast somehow ex gt2
I disagree, opengl is usually the best for a tnt card, unless you have the drivers improperly configured. The previous system I ran on was a p3-450 with a tnt2. Image quality also seemed better with opengl too, but those were the early days of the nvidia drivers so the d3d quality should be basically just as good.
I knew some people who had very bad results in OGL w/ their tnt2 based cards (and some other that had very good results too, and it wasn t a driver problem)

I guess the best thing to do is try the two pete s plugins and see which one is working better than the other.
