I've done some testing, but your workaround doesnt seem to solve the problem in my system. But all of you should try this workaround and post your result!
my specs are:
P!!! 700 Mhz
128 Mb o' RAM
NVIDIA TNT2 M64
Win 98 SE
And DirectX 7 installed
For all of you who have the now-famous-error-problem, i have a a theory to try out. I'll be needin' some help...YOUR help!
1. DELETE all plugins in the plugin\psemu
2. Check in fpsecfg, try to configure your ...PSE plugin. In my expirience the dialog boxes are greyed out BUT you dont encounter ANY error!!
3. Now unzip your psemu plugins, but unzip only what you need.
I've tried Pete's and Segu's CD plug, and yes it's still shows the error but THIS time you could actually SEE and CONFIGURE the plugin (by ignoring the error window, dragging it somewhere).
Do this for every plugin (GPU,SPU,etc) and do it ONE AT A TIME.
If everything went well, you'll be able to load FPSE and hopefully play some games!
My other theory is the DX version installed on your system, i haven't tried DX8 yet..maybe never will. But do post result here!
one last note, i still unable to play PE2, there's an error 'cMISURE: unknown opcode "ffffffff" at rPC=xxxxxxxxx' and the solution on the FAQ isn't helping (i didn't even check that option in the first place!)
Well i have this problem.
The most EASIEST thing for ME to do is move the illegal operation to drag the window somewhere and continue chaning and configureing my plugins.
Reloaded FPSe again and everyting is fine :yawn:
