SaGa Frontier 2 Frustration

Hello Everyone!
I am hoping that someone can please help me - I have looked at everything I can find on Saga Frontier 2 (PAL), here and elswhere, and can't solve my problem. If anyone can, please do! :D
The game begins alright, and goes automatically into a bit of story (no SF2 data on mem card) - guys having a fight, army routed, King calls off the rout to go back to the castle and see his new born son, all very jolly, names him Gustav XIII - and then it freezes black (seen this about 50 times!).

I have tried all these things, in many combinations:
- I tried playing around with a patch - ePSXe Help said I would need one - but I reckon if that were the problem the game would not start at all, which it does.
- Get the same result running off the disc or an ISO.
- Tried starting ePSXe with command line switch -noauto; same result.
- Tried starting ePSXe with command line switch -auto, which has been mentioned as a special SF2 fixing switch, but this is not recognised as valid.
- Tried starting ePSXe with command line switch -nomdec (I reckon an MDEC is about to kick in when it freezes); same result.
- Tried all sorts of different video settings; same result.

I am now at a complete loss as to what to try next. :???:
My versions are all quite up to date - I am using:
ePSXe 1.6.0
Pete's OpenGL2 Driver 2.6
P.E.Op.S. DSound Audio Driver 1.9 [Doubt relevant]
Internal ePSXe W9X CDR [Doubt relevant]

If anyone can help, I would be eternally grateful - maybe :2love: !

Hope so,

Fu Hsi

Thanks hushypushy.

I'm using:
Windows XP
Intel Celeron (R) 2.40 Ghz
512 MB RAM
Nvidia GeForce FX 5200SE

I could (will) try another emu, but I'm sure folks have got SF2 working with ePSXe. Would be a lot easier!

P.S. Yeah, nice legs. Are those girls friends of yours?...

Yes, screen! It seems to be a familiar story.... - sound continues fine, though.
Well, I have tried PSXeven, PCSX, and SSSPSX (sorry, yes, nowt wrong with other emulators); unfortunately same result. I have varied the settings a bit also.
As for the disk, it has been treated very well, and looks in good nick, but who knows.
I will try your last round of suggestions, hushypushy. :)
One other thing that occurred to me was that if I could get some SF2 memcard data, it would go to the title screen on loading up, instead of into the sequence, and I might get round it that way. But I suppose, I would have to watch that scene at some stage anyway.
Thanks for all the help, chaps. I'll keep trying. There must be a solution somewhere... :thumb:

[btw, hushypushy; I'm confused - do you wear skirts or not? - or are you a very un-hairy Scotsman! :lol: ]
