So as I didn't explain before, the problem is with the Legend of Dragoon game (I'm plugging the CD directly) and it seems that every so often the game screen would go black (this time though I can hear background noise) and I can't do anything (like moving a character). The previous time this happened was during the opening video but this went well on subsequent tries.

I've had this happen before on a game called Alundra (although it was an ISO) but I usually fixed it by saving and loading from a save-state

Does this game have a history of problems with the ePSXe? Is it because I'm running from the CD-Rom directly or would it be because of my video configuration?

Configuration specs:

Once again the problem seem to be fixed (I changed the texture)

Once I got over the blank screen by changing textures, another one came and I got over it by loading the previous save-state which made it work.....

Now the battle is another thing, Once the character finished talking and started fighting the screen becomes "stuck", yep even the sound is stuck and it didn't work when I loaded the save-state

The biggest problem is that I can't save in the memory-card before this battle, any ideas?

Maybe I should try to play the game in another emulator? anyone played this game before on emulator?

Tried to look for any, haven't found any. I can't see even a slight one

Might be because I'm working on a laptop, however, I played FFVIII and other games directly from the CD before on the laptop

I changed it to

- Offscreen drawing: 3
- Framebuffer texture: 1

But the second battle (mini boss battle) got stuck in real-time :lol: (meaning that the enemy continues to run towards me infinitely)

Make a image of the CD and try playing the game like that seems to me that disk reading is the actual problem, i got Legend of Dragoon and i haven't experience non of the problems above once.
