Hi there ePSXe fanatics,

I have the commercial version of Monster Rancher for PS1. I have tried both running it as a CD and as an ISO in the popular ePSXe emulator but the same thing happens: After it displays "Sony Computer Entertainment Presents" on the screen, it turns black and freezes. I have already configured each of the plugins and most of my other games work perfectly. Can anyone help?

Thanks, Mriceguy

Thanks for your quick replies.

I tried ePSXe 1.5.2 but the same probelm occurred. Fortunately my luck changed when I set up PSXeven. It worked perfectly after I had configured it. It's a shame ePSXe couldn't run it though.

But I still have one problem with this game. In "Monster Rancher" there is a special disk swapping feature where you insert other discs (Music & PS1 CDS) to create monsters. I've been running it from an ISO I created from my disc and PSXeven doesn't respond to other discs I place in my PC's drive.

Is there any way of fixing this problem or replicating this feature in another way?

Thanks again, Mriceguy.

I tried the Force change disc, but it could only force change ISO files. Monster Rancher read these successfully however. Do you think I could somehow get force change disc to work?

Thanks, Mriceguy

Thanks hushypushy, I changed to P.E.Op.S. CDR plugin and the force change disc works perfectly. I can now swap between new CDs and the Monster Rancher ISO.

My problems are solved, for now!
Thanks again, Mriceguy.
