Slowdowns in Ape Escape

Trying to play Ape Escape on epsxe 1.6, and as usually when trying to play any game on this emulator, gotta fix the problems before i can play it =/ - Normally the game runs fine but it has moments where it slows down a lot, like in the opening cut scene it really slowed down when looking at the time machine thingy. It also slows down a lot when the main guy spawns or dies.

Here's my video stuff:
Plugin: Pete's OpenGL2 Driver 2.6

Any recommendations?

By the by, anyone know if there's a way to change the camera angles in this game? They can't really be that bad can they? I hope they're not always like that, i just want to be able to see where i'm going :p

ok turn off odd/even bit hack and put FPS limit to 60 (trust me).

try setting your Vram size manually
check "Use Pixel Shader for 'PSX texture window' emulation".

you can click in the box to change your vram, you know ;) that's what i did with my old GeForce 5600---it was 256mb.
