Im sort of new to PSX emulation, and i need help with ff 7. Which plug-ins are the best for that particular game? Also, the intro shows a bunch of stars... and there is no sound, is it supposed to have no sound or is it a problem?
First, use ePSXe 1.5.2, 1.6.0 has timing problems with it and sometimes just locks up. The plugins to use depend heavily on your hardware - that's why there are so much, to taylor ePSXe's performance to your machine. In order to suggest plugins, we need to know at the very least your cpu speed, ram amount, and graphics card make, model and memory.
On a side note, please do not create duplicated threads. If for some reason you make a mistake and create them, you can delete them using the edit button on your first post. I already deleted the other one, just remember it for the future. And BTW, there is a search function on the forums wich will probably help you get your info faster than posting, as almost any question possible regarding psx emulation has been already asked .
Your pc is almost on the limits of epsxe's requirements. Try using peops gpu plugin, and setting it to the fast preset; eternal's spu plugin with its default options; and iy have the space on your HD, make an ISO of the disc and play from it.
