I am wondering what games run near 100% perfect and can be played all the way through (though not a major facter for this)

When I say perfect I mean no graphics glitches (or 'very' few), sound is not a major factor, and the FMV's play.

I am interested as I cannot find any reliable compat list's and what is more reliable than the people who use ePSXe!! :)

So Far my additions are: (ePSXe 1.4.0)

1: Crash Bandicoot 2
(100% completed / only occasional GFX glitches / sound =100% / FMV's=100% )

2: Cool Boarders 2
(100% completed / GFX glitches similiar to running on a PSX / Sound=50% music cuts out / FMV's=100%)

3: WWF Smackdown
(100% completed / only occasional GFX glitches / sound =100% / FMV's=100% )

I hope that this list will grow, so that it will become usefull for people to c what games they own will work on ePSXe. :)

I know that there are compat lists out there, but so far they all seem to conflcit and be inaccurate, some I have found say CrashB 2 is playable, and others say it isn't so I want to produce a list that is accurate (ish)!!

It has some glitches, and it gives no details on what works and what doesn't within the games, and which plugins work best!!

PS: The three games I posted work under Pete's D3D 1.53, and several others.

The only reason I even started using epsxe is that it ran FFIX PERFECTLY on my system. EXACTLY the same as on a psx. I was so impressed, I shelved all my FF pc versions, and SNES versions and got all the psx version. If I can get Dragon Warrior VII to run really smooth I will be an epsxe fan for life.

Well, if you say nearly perfect. I could mention RE2 (minor graphical glitches - fixed with fvp enabled), PE (this is perfect), Xenogears (perfect), Breath of Fire 4(some crashes - fixed with loading of patches), Harvest Moon: Back to Nature (yes, I have this, and is perfect), Vagrant Story (sound problems + superb graphics=good gameplay), Silent Hill (it is perfect to me, never had any problems with it). Uff, that's my list.

Mhwaaa, STARS!

Syphon Filter and Syphon Filter 2 also work well, with the exception of the in game speech cut out. Spyro 1-3 also work well, with the exception of sound effects cut out. ;)

I play basically 3 games:

FF7
Gran Turismo 2
Parasite Eve 2

None of them give me problems what so ever.

FF7:
Runs perfect in Software mode
I get 3/4 swirls with D3D
Same as D3d with OpenGL

Gran Turismo 2:
Runs and looks 2X better in both D3D and OpenGL than PSX

Parasite Eve 2:
Only played it once (Cousins CD, didnt let me burn it)
Ran great with no problems in D3D
