I have FF7 running almost perfectly.. The music is kinda slower than it should be but I fixed it with a framecap of 70fps.. Other than that its flawless.. Epsxe 1.4 is suppose to have fixed those crashing problems.. I passed both those parts without any problems.. I have a TB [email protected] mhz, 256mb [email protected] cas2 sdram, Voodoo 5 5500 agp, win98se, abit kt7a raid 133 mobo.. Have you tried running the game from an iso? Try the newly release petes cd rom pluggin..
