I second this, an english manual would be helpful.

I would like to have info on the various run modes.
While the first two are self explanatory, I wonder about the others.
I would like any suggestion on improving the FPS a bit, I got them a little low on FFVIII world map (nothing serious though).

Impressive emulator BTW, on my machine it won against ePSXe and pSX.

Don't get me wrong, what you did is nice and also helpfull for a first look
but i think the others here and me were talking about a far more detailed manual.
Anyway, thank you very much for the response.
