I was using the Run ISO option from the main menu, I thought that used the CD plugin, I see I was mistaken. Do you have to use a virtual CDRom with Mooby or does that have some special ISO support?dbhankins said:What are you doing now, mounting the ISOs on a virtual CD-ROM drive? Because Peops CDR 1.4 cannot, so far as I know, read ISOs directly - it's designed to read CD-ROM drives.
If you're using a virtual CD-ROM, you can use the ePSXe internal CD-ROM support, which I believe is fastest. You can also, as FFVII has no mixed-mode music tracks, skip using the virtual CD and just load the ISO directly into ePSXe with the "Run ISO" option on the File menu.
I am a happy user of Mooby2 for all my ISOs including FFVII, but I haven't had to switch disks yet and I anticipate problems at that point (search the PSX emu forums for switching disks with mooby2 to see some discussion on this).
P.S. You may find you get better performance from FFVII by using sssPSX rather than ePSXe for your emulator. I did. You may also want to check out my config for FFVII >>>HERE<<<
Ok I'm just looking for whatever has the best performance to see if I can eliminate those pauses.hushypushy said:when you use mooby's plugin you just go to run CD rom and that brings up a dialog to load an ISO.
in all honesty, just use Run ISO its a lot simpler and it lets you change discs.
Yup, I noticed SSSPSX always gives you the select ISO/disc window when you press continue, regardless of the plugin. So I imagine that how it works with ISOs using the internal plugin - get disc change message in game, press Esc, select continue, select next disc ISO from window.dbhankins said:I've tested it with FF7 in sssPSX as well as ePSXe, and it works fine. In sssPSX hit ESC. When you click the continue menu item, Mooby2 will pop up its image selection dialog.
