New guy here, and newbie with ePSXe - just started using it to try my favorite PSX game Rival Schools Evolution 2 (japanese version). Overall I can at least play the game. Problems are these:
1. Background Music - in some instances it doesn't play where it should (eg game's main menu after the logo screen, or occassionally during the fighting), and if I try high detail graphics settings, effects like Super Attacks causes the background music to slow down like a phonograph or analog tape recorder that's low on batteries. Tried different plugins and their respective settings but couldn't get rid of this problem.
2. Still pictures - the game features still pictures (that can be purchased from an in-game store) consisting of anime style character artwork, and viewing them is problematic - they just flash briefly then the screen goes blank, regardless of graphics settings.
Anyone else with Rival Schools Evolution 2 and using ePSXe to play it? I also have Connectix VGS and that emu has no problems with that game, if not for the lack of 3D accelerator support.
