I am having a bit of trouble with the ISO I made of this game and so far when I play it, it goes into black screen mode whenever I hit start or reach certain conversation points which happen way at the start.

This is my specs:

Plugin: Pete's D3D Driver 1.1.74
Author: Pete Bernert
GFX card: Trident Blade 3D/ProMedia AGP 5.8071-01

Resolution/Color:
- 320x240 Fullscreen - [16 Bit]

Textures:
- R4G4B4A4
- Filtering: 0
- Hi-Res textures: 0
- Palettized tex windows: off
- VRam size: 0 MBytes - 56 textures usable

Framerate:
- FPS limit: on
- Frame skipping: off
- FPS limit: 60

Compatibility:
- Offscreen drawing: 2
- Framebuffer texture: 1
- Framebuffer access: 0
- Alpha multipass: on
- Mask bit: off
- Advanced blending: none

Misc:
- Scanlines: off [0]
- Unfiltered FB: on
- Dithering: off
- Screen smoothing: off
- Full vram: off
- Game fixes: off

For the sound I have all but one checkbox marked on it and when I check the checkbox, I can continue on with the game but the voices cut off despite the music and sound effects still playing.

Anyone have any fix for this? Also I am using Eternal SPU 1.41 and I don't have any of the gamefixes checked inside the configuration.

I also tried the SPUAsync and async mode set to Smooth but that doesn't work (which was one of the suggestions here). :(

Try this:
- Framebuffer texture: 0
- Framebuffer access: 4
This will need a lot of cpu power, so might be slow. Alternatively, you can try:
- Framebuffer texture: 2
- Framebuffer access: 3
though i think it will be slow with your gfx card. If so, then try PEOPs gpu plugin.

About the sound, you'll have spu irq hack disabled. That's correct, Eternal GPU plugin handles that internally, so the checkbox must be indeed disabled.

Thank you! That has fixed the problem, the game still hangs a bit at the beginning but I can just skip the part. :)

At least now the black screens don't appear when I am trying to go into the main menu (unless I don't skip the part).

I'll try that PEOPS GPU plugin if I happen to be permanently stuck in the game despite that change in settings.
