Hello good people of the emulation world. I'm currently trying to run Lunar SSS on my ePSXe emulator and I'm having probs. Mainly during gameplay especialy during the cinematic cutscenes and during battles I get a rather annoying skip and a possibly unrelated occasional line accross the screen that minorly distorts the image to either side of it. I'm tryin to run it on windows XP with an Nvidia Gforcre 4 mx420 64mb graphics card and a pentium 4 proccessor. If anyone can tell me how to find out what sound chip I have short of cracking open the case and think it will be helpful I will post it too. My current GPU and SPU settings are:


Plugin: P.E.Op.S. Soft Driver 1.1.16
Author: Pete Bernert and the P.E.Op.S. team

Resolution/Color:
- 800x600 Fullscreen - [16 Bit]
Stretch mode: 1
Dither mode: 1

Framerate:
- FPS limit: on
- Frame skipping: off
- FPS limit: 60

Misc:
- Scanlines: disabled
- Gamefixes: the lunar specific one


P.E.Op.s DSound Audio Driver 1.9
General Settings:
- Mode: 2
- Volume: 2
- Reverb: 2
- Interpolation: 3

XA Music:
- Enable XA playing: on
- Change XA speed: on

Misc:
- SPU IRQ - wait for CPU action: off
- SPU IRQ - handle irqs in decoded sound areas: off
- Mono sound mode: off
- Enable developer debug mode: off
- Enable sound recording window: off



Sorry about the size just trying to get all the info I can out so I can get some help. :)

Lunar has a bug on EPSXE: the screen gets dark when u open the menu OR when u go to another screen. Its not a plugin bug, its an EPSXE bug. Using the fix on the pete's plugins solve this, but some weird effects will show up from time to time.

I recomend that u use PSXeven, since it doesn't have this bug, and the E}I{'s soft plugin, since its the best one for this game. If you want to use Pete's plugin though, DISABLE THE LUNAR FIX since its for EPSXE only.

Here's the best config for the E}I{'s plugin on PSXeven:

Down to just a few miniscule skips during the opening theme now can anyone post a link with E}I{'s plugin I can't seem to find it. Also I'm open to sound driver suggestions that are recomended to go with either lunar PSXeven or the E}I{'s plugin and settings to run it on.

Play it on Sega CD. Trust me, you aren't missing anything with the PSX version.

Dude, opinions are like @sses... I think I don't need to say the rest. ;)
I mean, the Sega CD one is fantastic, but not everyone think its better than the PSX version! I have played every Lunar version ever released (including the Saturn and the GBA ones), and quite frankly IMO the Sega CD version is the weakest of them all (well exept for the GBA version).
And since the fella wanna solve the problems with the PSX version, not the Sega CD one, I think we should help him, neh? ;)


Anyway Liquidblaze, u can find every plugin on the main ngemu page ( www.ngemu.com ). Get the E}I{'s here: http://www.ngemu.com/download.php?action=plugin&id=10

The sound plugin I recomend is the Ethernal plugin. Get it here: http://www.ngemu.com/download.php?action=plugin&id=2

The config I use for the Ethernal Plugin is the one on the pic.

Try turning SPUAsync on and setting the mode to Smooth. Use Directsound with a buffer of 64. Works on just about any game. If you're using PSXeven, change the FPS limit of your GPU Plugin to 65.

The SPUAsync won't work good on some machines. Mine, for example. Maybe 'cause my sound card just sucks! And the FPS limit at 65 will produce some cracking on the sounds 'casue the game will work a bit faster than the normal.
