Ok, I was following the video settings recommended by the ePSXe site, but it was way too slow. So, I set it to "Fast" (Pete's OpenGL), and my speed went up considerably, but still not as high as I would desire.

Here are my specs:
3 Ghz P4
512 mb ddr
Radeon 9200 SE

Here are my video settings:
Plugin: Pete's OpenGL Driver 1.1.75
Author: Pete Bernert
Card vendor: ATI Technologies Inc.
GFX card: RADEON 9200SE DDR x86/SSE2

- 1280x1024 Fullscreen - NO desktop changing [16 Bit]
- Keep psx aspect ratio: off

- Default
- Filtering: 0
- Hi-Res textures: 0
- VRam size: 0 MBytes

- FPS limitation: off
- Frame skipping: off
- FPS limit: Auto

- Offscreen drawing: 1
- Framebuffer texture: 1
- Framebuffer access: 0
- Alpha multipass: on
- Mask bit: off
- Advanced blending: off

- Scanlines: off
- Line mode: off
- Unfiltered FB: on
- 15 bit FB: on
- Dithering: off
- Screen smoothing: off
- Screen cushion: off
- Game fixes: off [00000000]

So, how can I increase my speed to match an actually Playstation's? If you need any more info (my other settings), please ask...

lower resolution turn on frame limit, change your gfx card? :) that's what came first to my mind :), also try the D3d version of petes gpu plugin, it can help sometime. Try to update your gfx card drivers...

Also, if there's possibility that you don't know:
for pal games frame rate is 50 fps,

for ntsc games frame rate is 60 fps.

'Fast' gets it to run as fast as it can. Without framelimiting, so in theory it'd run faster than the PSX. The original PSX speed (in hte plugins) is 60/50FPS dependingon the game's region. Set Framelimit to autodetect and enable FPS limitation.
If it's still running slow, try lowering the resolution. Failing that, make sure you have up to date drivers intalled.

Ok, I lowered my resolution to 800x600 and limited my FPS to 60 and now it works perfectly. Thanks!
I am having the opposite issue. My ISO's tend to run way too fast. However I don't even know how to access all of those commands that you guys are talking about. Could someone please give me a very detailed step by step explanation?

For what it's worth I created my ISO's with Undisker and Magic ISO.
