ah, aren't we TOO helpful or not? ;)

anyway, the only emulator that has problems with backup CDs is VGS, if i'm not mistaken. Now GT2 works in it, as well as ePSXe.

Now probably the reason why it isn't working is because:

1. it's a bum disc.

2. it's badly scratched

3. Somehow, your reader doesn't like certain kinds of CD-Rs.

If you're using epsxe, GT2 needs "Enable Accurate Timing" to be on in order to work.

btw, I don't know if you wanna tell us, but it would be useful to know which emu you're using.

yes, telling us the emu you're using is very important as each of the different emus have different quirks and requirements to get games to run properly. Once you tell us the emu you're using and also the plugins and your system config would be very very helpful also, then we will be in a much better position to assist you.
Ali, please dont use the term "GOD DAMN" again. That is swearing and it is not at all necessary. Many people may or may not find it offensive. I, myself, DO find it offensive.:( So please, not again, okay? Thanks.

sorry

sorry guys i had problems with the boards and i never replyed... here is what i was gonna say:

1) yes i am using epsx
2) im using the following plugins
*video: pete's openGl driver 1.53
*sound: pete's DSound Audio Driver 1.10
*cdRom: TSG MSCDEX Driver 1.2
3) My computer consists of:
*
1.3 ghz athlon
geForce 3
512 mb ddr ram
*
(i think it can handle the emulator pretty well... dont you?)


again sorry for not replying... but know i have another mini problem... i cant get music to run from the cd... like when i play tekken 3 theres no background music... and when i play megaman legends there is no narrative... you guys think its just my cd rom? or is it something with the sound drivers?

thanks

For gt2, enable "Accurate cdrom Timing" in the cd config. I would also advise you to try ePSXe ASPI core(the internal cd plugin), which for me works better than TSG's. Try also Eternal SPU. It's really good.

the thing is none of the games work without that TSG plugin (the one for the cd) its cause of my cd rom... something about not supporting RAW something or other... as for Eternal SPU? what plugin is that? is it a sound plugin? (sorry im very new to this...)

My advice,
Use pete's plugins for graphics and cdrom.
There are a lot of sound plugins,some working well with some games while some with others.
And yes eternal spu is a sound plugin.
*Your computer is capable of giving very good emulation performances*

Try disabling or enabling DMA on your cd rom drive and see if it works with the internal cd rom pluggin and others besides the TSG cd rom pluggin.. Some cd rom drives have problems reading psx games with DMA enabled.. I use the internal spu pluggin for GT2.. The other spu's give me very low music volume in this game.. I can only hear the cars engines.. Barely hear music..

A cd rom driver update or a firmware update may fix your cd rom drive problems as well..
