srsly, using a core 2 duo e6600 in conjunction with an ati x1650 pro should not yield this problem, so should i blame drivers, plugins, or v 1.70 itself? btw aero is off. I'll post a followup w/ actual pec video driver settings only if needed for clarification purposes.

It's probably user error.

What plugins are you using?

What version of the plugins are you using?

What are the plugins' respective settings?

What game(s) are you trying to play?

What driver version are you using for your video card?

You need to manually specify your VRAM. (Just click in the box and type it in)

Set 'Compatibility' to 1,2,2

You already have the correct game fixes turned on, so you're good there.:thumb:

EDIT: turn off the frame limit since ePSXe 1.7.0 has an internal limiter.

the video card and drivers
....you will encounter problems.

wait for the next driver release, or buy a new video card and get new drivers monthly.

i keep maxing out on one core still, and then the music stutters
should i do some more stuff?

and it's not like i can finish dissidia without playing this first, and i set the spec's to what was pictured with the fix as well. i'm not sure what the issue is anymore!

but then how do i get to use pec and stuff? i just want to use epsxe and unless there is a huge resource hog somewhere i should be able to do that, and why does the program only use one core? the processor does have 2 of them.

it wasnt designed to support/benefit from multi-core processors.

ePSXe isn't a multithreaded app. My old 850MHz AMD Duron processor had no problem with ePSXe 1.2.0 so it's not like it needs to be multithreaded.

Since you're using PEC, stop using it. Some cheat codes can break games and cause other various performance-related problems. Other than that, if you're using save states, save at an actual save point (or the world map), exit the game, restart ePSXe and continue from your game save.
