View Full Version : ePSXe 1.70 Help - Games load, but hang
June 13th, 2008, 15:44
I have a problem with ePSXe, the games I have aren't working right... this is the problem. The games will load, both the CDROM and the ISO versions, but the problem is they 'freeze' after the first screen, so for instance when trying to play Fifa 2000, it will hang after the loading screen finishes the progress bar. I know that the ISO versions of the games work because they play in PSXeven (but I can't get the CD version of the games to work in PSXeven, but I think this is a plugin issue). Here is what my settings are:
BIOS - scph1001
GPU - Pete's OpenGL2 Driver 2.9
SPU - ePSXe SPU Core 1.7.0
CD - ePSXe CDR WNT/W2K core 1.7.0
I have tried both the Subchannel option on and off...

If you are using Vista, run as administrator.

what happens when you use other versions of epsxe like 1.5.2 or 1.6.0? can you post your system specs.? for your images, have you tried mounting them on a virtual drive?
try my old d3d dx6 settings-

Ok, well I reinstalled the ASPI drivers (I don't think they were being used?), and rebooted, and low and behold its working now, so not sure if I just had a hang up somewhere that was cleared with the reboot, but its working now... thanks everyone for your help.
