Well, now I've tried 3-4 different emu's, and none of them has worked. I get a blank screen everytime i start the game.
So now, here's my specs:
-Intel Celeron 2.4GHz
-512 MB Ram
-GeForce FX5500 128MB
-Nec DVD-burner
-LG cd-burner
-Norway(PAL)
If someone could share theire ePSXe folder with me, with plugins and configged to FF9 and cirka the same specs as mine, i would be very thankfull
;)

http://www.ngemu.com/psx/misc.php?action=ppf <- get a suitable ppf patch here.

from epsxe help :

Starting with ePSXe v1.5.0, ePSXe comes with an option to apply PPF patches to your game on the fly, as already seen in Pete's great CD plugin. NGEmu made a collection of important PPF files for you to download, but searching the web you should find plenty more. Using them is a bit more difficult, but easy once you got the system, and understandable for everyone who follows the step-by-step instructions below :

1. Download (and possibly unzip) the PFF patch EXACTLY for the game you'd like to patch. That means that you won't be able to use a PPF patch for FF9 german with your italian version ! Also keep in mind that some games (like Gran Turismo) have two versions.

2. Copy the file into the /patches sub-directory in your ePSXe directory

3. Look on the CD you want to use ... you'll find a file whose name is like SLES*,SCES* or SLUS*. Copy that name and rename the PPF file from your /patches directory to exactly the same name (also in uppercase !).

4. You're done, the next time you run that game ePSXe will add the patch on the fly !


also be sure to run the game using epsxe 1.5.2 and not 1.6.0.

Okay, now here's a pick of what comes up when I Run CDROM. I see that after GPU it says [0]. Does it have somthing to do with the fact that I only get black screen?

Uhm., when I choose, Download PPF, I get to the News page. Is it just my net, or could someone post the PPF here or something for me?
Can it be that you are using netscape or another none IE browser? The PPF download page doesnt work in my NS7 either. Toss it in standard IE and use rightclick/save as on the download links. Works for me.

Can somebody share the file here? It starts to try save the file, but when I choose where to save it, it starts to download the link to the News page. :hdbash:
BTW: I'm using Opera.

Aye. I dunno if any of these will work with your norwegian version though. :rolleyes:

EDIT: I removed attached files.

I can't unzip it. It says that the archive is either damaged or in a unknown format. I use WinRAR, what program should I use?

Sorry, you're right. I didnt test the downloaded files. They're all broken. There's really something fishy about the PPF download page. :/

You probably forgot to enable FPS limitation. If you're using one of Pete's plugins (wich you should) you should get used to the onscreen display. You can trigger it with the del-key. Page-up and page-down goes through the different options and the Home-key and End-key switch through the available settings. The most left option is the FPS limitation. You can switch between 3 settings while playing without restarting the emu. First is auto-detect, wich usually runs the game at normal speed. Second is the speed you specifically set in the GFX plugin option. Try setting the value to 100-120. That will roughly double the gamespeed, helps when you wanna level and have to fight over and over again. The last options is unlimited speed, wich is what happens now i assume.
