Hi NGFreaks, it's been a while i have'nt posted here :guitar:

I have tested Rage Racer NTSC U/C with ePSXe 1.6.0, and it seems that when i'm driving with the internal view (the default one), it's really SLOOOOOOOW. The plugin in-game menu shows a constant 60 FPS, but i'm sure it's slow. If i switch to the external view, the game runs at normal speed.

I noticed that the slowdowns are due to the driving mirror (sorry if my english is bad, it's the mirror which shows what happenning behind you). If i'm playing Time Attack, the game runs at normal speed, even in the internal view because the driving mirror is not present in Time Attack.

I have tried different plugins (OpenGL, Peops Soft) and settings, but this annoying problem is still here, and I play really bad with the external view.
I usually play with:
ePSXe 1.6.0
bios: scph1001.bin
GPU plugin: Pete's OpenGL2, X1, Y2, OD2, FE2, FU2
SPU plugin: Eternal SPU Async, Smooth
CDR plugin: Mooby

My specs:
Asus A7N8X-E Deluxe
AthlonXP 1800+
Radeon 8500 64Mb DDR
2x256 Mb DDR PC3200 Infineon

Do you think that my computer is too weak for displaying correctly the driving mirror (i don't have any problem with Ridge Racer Type 4) ? Do you have a solution to these slowdowns?

Thanks a lot :thumb:

thanks everyone for your help.
I have tried the PC FPS calculation game fix with the OGL1 plugin, but this time it's too fast :p.

with the OGL1 plugin and the settings to the minimum (640x480, textures R4G4B4, OD0 etc...) it's still slow with the driving mirror.

I think i will test with PSXeven and PCSX. btw i found a cheat to disable the driving mirror for the PAL version (by pressing triangle and R1 during the game) but it didn't work for my US version.

make sure to also enable frame limiting if it's going too fast/
don't worry, i have ticked the FPS limit box of course :D

dj4monie, if you want to play music with RR (i think you're talking about Ridge Racer 1), i suggest you to use the CDR Mooby plugin with an image file of your CD and to increase CDDA volume in the plugin config box because it's mute by default.

Or you can plug a cable from your CD/DVD drive to your sound card, and play with your CD and any CDR plugin, because ePSXe don't handle music in numeric mode.

I have the 4 RR and they don't have any music pb with Mooby's plugin.

thanks hushypushy! the last time i have used the PC fps game fix and i have set the FPS limit manually to 60. just after reading your post, i tested the PC fps game fix with "autodetect FPS option" and now the speed is normal (the FPS meter shows 30 i don't know why but now the game is fully enjoyable) thanks.

PS: just an off topic question, sorry if it bother you. how do you use a 100x100 avatar? i can't upload or link any avatar bigger than 85x85. thanks.
