All I get is a black screen.
1.7.0 update: plugins such as Sapu's and Xeven's CDR plugins do not work in ePSXe 1.7.0; use the internal CDR Plugin with subchannel reads enabled.
First, make sure you've got everything together. You need a BIOS, plugins (graphics, sound, and CD and pad if you need them), and of course the game you want to play.
Look at the console (the DOS window). Are there any errors? What are the errors? Based on that, make adjustments to the plugins you use (i.e. if it has a CD reading error, try a different plugin, different drive, or make an ISO).
If you have a copy protected PAL game, you might need to use a PPF patch. Check NGEmu's PPF page (http://www.ngemu.com/misc.php?action=ppf) for our downloadable database of PPF patches. Alternatively, create an ISO image with subchannel data (http://forums.ngemu.com/misc-psx-discussion/34515-how-make-perfect-backup-psx-games.html).
Does anything show up when you run the BIOS? (File-->Run BIOS in ePSXe). If so, then you know it's a problem with the game or its compatibility, and not with the emulator's general configuration.
Does the game work on a real PSX? If not, then that's your problem; your game just doesn't work.

yes i know, i've run the bio's something DOES appear and for the patches i've downloaded the one for legend of dragoon, but...where do i put it?

just make an image of the disc in .bin/.cue format.
June 16th, 2008, 00:49
the one i got was already a .bin file
June 16th, 2008, 00:58
do you have the .cue file as well? are you mounting the .bin file on a virtual drive? if you are not, try mounting it.
June 16th, 2008, 00:59
ya i got the .cue file also, and i cant mount the cue. it says file not acceceable for daemon tools and for power iso it says format is invalid or unsupported(it is supported)
June 16th, 2008, 00:59
is it stored in the same directory as the .bin?
June 16th, 2008, 01:03
yes it is
June 16th, 2008, 01:05
you dont mount the .cue file, you mount the .bin. (i should have worded what i said earlier a bit differently because i can see why you tried doing that) then configure your cdrom plugin to be looking at whatever virtual drive it is mounted on instead of your actual physical drive. you could also try using the mooby2 plugin.
June 16th, 2008, 01:15
you can mount the cue file in apps like alcohol, but most others jus requires the cue file is in the same folder with the same name.
June 16th, 2008, 01:35
well i used the mooby2 plug-in but it didnt make a difference, should i run from the cd or the iso?
June 16th, 2008, 01:38
well usually if the game is copy protected (PAL in other words), making a .bin/.cue image and then mounting it on a virtual drive works just as well as patching it with a .ppf patch. im not really sure why its not working for you. is there any damage to the disc?
June 16th, 2008, 01:42
no..i used a empty cd what do i do with my patch anyways..just run it or put it in with my .bin file or something...
June 16th, 2008, 01:54
thats something squall or someone who used PAL region games would have to tell you, i live in the US so i dont have any experience with those things.
wait what do you mean by an empty cd?
June 16th, 2008, 01:59
empty cd as in i bought a stack of writable cd's and put the .bin and .cue files in it
June 16th, 2008, 02:01
eh thats probably why then, you need to be using the original game disc if you want it to work. if you dont have it then you need to buy it because there isnt really anything else you can do if that is the case.
