Hi. A friend of mine recently bought FFIX, and wants to get it to work on his PC since it apparently looks better. Ive tried setting up epsxe and followed the instructions, including seeting up the GPU , CDR and SPU plugins. He managed to find the correct bios as well (PAL) , and if i click Run BIOS, then it shows then playstation menu and plays the usual sound. But if i click RUN CD using the original CD, it only shows a black screen. I also tried ripping the 1st CD to ISO using daemon tools, and tried using RUN ISO, and also tried mounting the ISO to the first drive letter and using RUN CD - but it still just shows a black screen. I don't get it. Please help.

You're probably right. He said he has a PAL version, and as far as I can remember all PAL versions of FF9 have copy protection.

What you need to do:

- Find a patch to remove the copy protection. There are specific patches for most versions out there, althought I have no idea on where you can find them (I have the NTSC version).

- Either patch your ISO, or use Pete's CDR Plugin to auto-apply the patch to the CD.
