i've always been using the internal win2k cdr plugin to run psx cd's on my winxp system but i wanted to run ff9 w/ the patch so i decided to use pete's cdr plugin but this doesnt seem to work on my system. epsxe would not iniate and i'd be stuck w/ the ms-dos interface screen. i've installed the aspi layer provided @ ngemu but the problem still occurs. could anyone help me w/ the settings or any solution that could solve my problem. i want to patch my ff9 and i dont want to create iso's. is it possible to patch the game on-the-spot w/ pete's cdr plugin??
