I noticed on the compatability list that there were a lot of people using ISO copies of FF9. Is it absolutly necessary to use an ISO copy of FF9 in order to get it to work correctly using ePSXe or can I run it from my CD-ROM instead. If I can run it from my CD-ROM can someone provide me with step by step instructions on what I should download and configure to get it working? I really would appriciate it a lot.

The thing about an ISO is that the game gets accessed faster from the HD which can reduce choppiness of sound of Mdecs and just make the game play faster. However they can take up 700+ Mb.
If you have a PAL(euro) version of FF9 then you'll need to patch the game before its playable in a emu. The best way to patch is to apply the patch to an ISO, however you can use Pete's CD plugin 1.6 to apply the patch directly to the CD while you're playing it.

So I would make an ISO, but its probably not absolutely necesary. You may get choppy gameplay without it though.

Hi!
No problem -if you like, you can also use the original CD's!

Under Config/CD-ROM you may configure "Pete's CDR ASPI Driver 1.6"

Check PPF-Patches, and insert the location where your patch-file is stored. (You'll need one, you surely know?) The plugin will insert the patch on the fly while reading from the CD-ROM.
Might work with other plugins too, but I'm just using this one and it works fine by me.

Have fun!
