My PC spec:

OS: WinXP SP2
Gfx: ATI RADEON 9250
Snd: SoundMax Control Panel
CPU: Intel(R) P4 2GHz 400Mhz
RAM: 512 MB DDr

Note: Most of Pete's Plugin does't have a "Brightness" Option because in the game most detail are not shown clearly/Bright enough.

P.s. FF7 is PAL

Thanks In Advance

Bah.. OpenGL sucks with FF7. The window in battle lags as hell and the text is... Well. Blocky!! 9250-cards can run OpenGl2 just fine with resonable resolution and settings. The Psueudo Shaders doesn't affect performance at all on ATI cards.

uncheck the "shader effects" box, and uncheck "use pixel shader for PSX texture window emulation".

i already said "turn off shader options" but i figured i'd clarify.

I surprised anyone hasn't yet mentioned the pre/post battle slowdown on ePSXe 1.6.0

ePSXe version 1.6.0 has a problem where the game will slowdown really bad before you enter a battle and then afterward in the "Take Items" screen. To avoid that you should use ePSXe 1.5.2 or SSSPSX.

Steveroid: That's not true. In fact, it depends on your SPU settings. If you turn off Update before accessing register, it will disappear. :p
Nope. Slowdown is there regardless of that setting or any setting for that matter; only using the previous version of ePSXe removes that problem for me. I believe I've read posts by more experienced member saying the same thing if you don't believe me, could be wrong though.

Anyway not a concern for me as I use SSSPSX to play the game anyway.

-edit-
Probably got that info from this thread and husypushy:

i dont think it goes too fast oO anyway, what you can do is set your FPS limit to auto, but fill in the box with like 30 fps. then it came change the fps limit so it goes to the secondary limit (30) and it will be slow.
