I didn't start with the insults. Your board did. They started a flame war, they got it. I insulted the ones who insulted me.
So why are you angry with me?
And why are to talking about your age and your kids? I just cleared up the fact that I'm 19. I wasn't bragging.

I think that you both need a hug. i cringe when i say this, but 8 bit orgy was right about the insults first.... Even though i belive he was asking for it.

Age has nothing to do with this. Im only 21. I have 3 years of college under my belt. I have been an IT consultant for 6 years. I have a wife, and a kid on the way. I understand that you are old sxamiga :) . But it doesnt mean that you know more than the younger crowd. I have worked my butt off in my field. I work for over 30 diffrent lawfirm, internet startup groups, hospitals, and other busnesses. I could list you every bit of hardware in existance (well, thats over stated) and there specs, faults, uses and whatever. I have been programming in C++/OOP for as long as i can remember.

Anyways, the point being, i have had extreamly hard times getting work beacuse of people belive that age has something to do with skills, competency, ablilities, or experice. So i dont think that people of this board should not be throwing around age based insults. Because some 13 year olds can/do write some of the best emulators out there. The only problem is that they are rare.

8 bit orgy: I belive that you lack the ability to comprehend all of the good advice that people have sent to you. And you possibly lack the ablity to comprehend what you stated back. Only if you had just listened and not argued, you could have had one of the finest pices of emulation code working on your machine. And games do look a hell of alot better with Epsxe than Bleem.

I didn't start with the insults. Your board did. They started a flame war, they got it. I insulted the ones who insulted me.
I think the discussion was civil until you've started the "It is true that ePSXe is free. But it's still a peice of crap. If it was well coded, then the guys would be smart enough to charge for it. There shouldn't be problem like 'won't work with your hardware'..." argument.

I _really_ disagree with that opinion. ePSXe is the most advanced psx emu right now. Not even the nowadays commercial psx emus I know (well, that's just VGS and Bleem!) are offering the same amount of features (okay, VGS has an higher compatibility, and Bleem!... well, Bleem! is Bleem! ;)).

To call an emulator a piece of crap because it doesn't work on your system (and I think it's because of your cdrom drive, since you get a gfx display and sound) isn't very polite. The "if it would be good, it would cost money" statement is even stupid (sorry). Most emulators are freeware, and do you really want to say all that emus are crap? The "emu-freeware" thing is
a) because of legal issues (look at the problems of bleem! and VGS with Sony, look at the rom-situation on other systems)
b) most emu coders are doing it for fun or maybe to proove it can be done (and maybe to get a bit of emu-fame... well, why not?)

And I think it's hard to compare a psx emu with a GBA, SNES or Genesis emu (regarding your "it should work with every kind of hardware" opinion). The older systems don't have to access your pc hardware very much... their gfx emulation isn't very hardware dependend (all drawing is done in software, and the final output is done by simple DirectDraw calls nearly every card should support), the psx sound is more complex, too, and no raw cd data reading is required for playing a rom.

Even the N64 HLE video stuff is more PC-like (and therefore sometimes easier to do) like the psx gpu emulation (of course a N64 emu video plugin coder has to fight against different problems, like the combine mode emulation, or non-power-2 textures).

Well... my advice to you: try to make an ISO of your game (maybe check out some game compatibility site first, to see if the game is supported), use a soft gpu plugin, and maybe turn off the sound (using a NULL spu plugin). That way you have nearly no hardware-dependend problems, and the game should work (not nice, but it is a start). After that try to enable the sound, then use a hw/accel. gpu plugin and finally try to play the game directly from your cd... so you will find out what's giving you troubles.

Also: please read the FAQs first (maybe you have, maybe you don't)... most common problems are covered in the FAQs, really.

Disturbed, unfortuneately, yes I have seen flame wars, more that you'll ever know. The hug idea is nice but making light of thatg situation isn't. When people try to help some one and suggest alternatives, but the one they are trying to help keeps ranting over and over about the same thing and then attacks those who are trying to help him...........Well, that I can not stand. Maybe you think flame wars are not that serious, but I do, and I think Bobbi would agree w/me also.
Dan, I'm not putting all young people down, only the ones that act like they know it all and sorry to say, this is how 8 Bit Irgy came across. Maybe he didn't mean to, but that is how it seemed to me. I've been through the "school of hard knocks" just like you, and again more that you'll ever know. So try to understand where I''m coming from.
8 Bit Orgy, I've got to get back to work, but I'll post again in this thread tonight and explain some things to you also.
sincerely,
sx/amiga

Flame wars are a really bad thing, and nothing we want to see here on this board. The actions which sxamiga took were in no reason offending to "the young ones" and completly right.

When you have a problem with ePSXe, then please, delete it and never think about it again, but flamming it here is the last thing anyone wants to see. The authors put their free time into it to make the emu scene a favor, to proove that it's possible, or something else. They spent plenty of time and people coming with those stupid arguments can kill that all.

And no, age has nothing to do with this :) (did I mention some people here as really disturbed ?)

Thanks, Bobbi, for your comments. 8 bit Orgy, there is nothing left for me to say. Bobbi said it all very very well. I hope you now have a better understanding of where I was coming from and why I acted as I did.
sincerely,
sx/amiga

Why don't we all just shut the hell up?! Flaming and insulting people/programs gets you no where! It just gets people pissed at you (ehehe I know this from experience scince no one seems to take my side in anything I want to say around here). So lets just get along, or play a nice friendly game of Q3 to settle it. :mg: :rockets: :laser:

i just read the thread and i think that 8-bit,you've gone too far
i think ePSXe is a great piece of software and you can't just blame it just because you can't run it,plus you got it for free
if it is sold and you bought it,that would be another story
who cares if it's buggy ,all software that is released is buggy
i think one of the reason the dev release it for the mass is for us to help em test and em debug it by returning usefull message,
not telling em that their prog crap just because it won't run
plus ,all pcs have different specs and the dev doesn't have all of hardware ever released ,they just code it with their hardware and with just the info for the other hardware
fyi,when i first got ePSXe ,it ran almost perfect and i am amazed by that,coz it's free and such.
even if it won't start, i wouldn't flame the dev ,coz i know they have put alot of hardwork to code it
a big thanks from me to all of the dev of ePSXe and it's plugin
