Mdec problem with disc2

with epsxe, I never had that problem, maybe it's your setting or your graphic card.
I got a different problem with ff8, I had tried all the latest plugins and driver and doesn't fix the problem.

During disc2 I can't see any movie, while the game continue and when changing from disc 1 to 2, it doesn't recognise it's disc 2, I think it's the emulator problem or something else, I wonder if anyone had the same problem and know any fix to it. first I use copied ff8, then I bought my own original, and it give me the same problem

oh yeah does anyone know why playing with vgs the graphic look so shit for ff8?

my pc spec:
AMD athlon 1.33
asus v133 motherboard
asus v3800U TNT2 graphic card
sound blaster live sound card
256 kingmax sdram

Well with ff9, you have to disable frameskipping to see the battle menu so it may hold true here as well. Don't forget to set your offscreen drawing to standard or extended if you're using one of Pete's hardware accelerated plug-ins.

As for sniper's problem, I'm not quite sure I follow you there? You switch discs in the emulator and then ... what happens? Have you tried isos? Do you use save states as well? Maybe you should do one of the regular in-game saves at the end of disc 1 close epsxe then open it and boot disc 2. Disc 2 can boot on its own, right? You aren't having any problems with that?

Sounds like it could be a problem with the cd or iso. You can try making an iso or try running off of the original cd. For ff9 just browse through the many many many ff9 threads on this board. And you should really consider upgrading your processor, that gf2 is getting bored and lonely.

I got 2 problem with ff8
1. when I finish disc 1, it ask me to put disc 2 in, * and yes I had saved the game using normal save, yes that does work booting from disc2 and starting the save file from there,* but what I mean is, when it ask me to change from disc1 to disc 2 when I finished disc1, I changed it, and it say wrong disc!!!! I got the original ff8, and it give me that, so I believe it's related to epsxe emulator unknow bugs.

2, during disc 2 of ff8, I can play it, but when it come to the cinematic part, all I see is blank screen, untill the movie is ended, and the game continue. my friends say they got the same problem, so I wonder if anyone out there had come across this problem, and or know the fix to it, coz I like to watch the movie,
I got the pal version of ff8.*original*

That second one sounds like the old mdec glitch. Make sure you have mdecs switched on in epsxecutor.

As for disk changing... you need to goto the change cd option in the file menu after you insert the disk for the emu to realise the disks are changed. But as you said you can access it by exiting the emu and restarting so it is not too big a prob in this case.
