View Full Version : FF9 problem (PAL)...s'all gone black..
June 29th, 2002, 23:27
I just got ePSXe recently so I was trying out a couple of games. Final Fantasy 7 and 8 worked great but I'm having trouble getting final fantasy 9 to work. I've got the same settings that I used for the other 2 games with the addition of the two FF9 game fixes (I'm using Pete's OpenGL Driver 1.63 plugin).
When I try to run the game I just get a black screen...nothing happens. I can come out ok (by pressing esc) so the computer hasn't frozen...
Anyone got any ideas?
Thanks in advance :)

Have a look at the config guide on my site.
The UK version requires Subchannel reads or patching, and my site details how to do that.

Could you post your plugin settings?

yes, i suppose to know that...
you must configure your cd-rom.. and in the subchannel reading options, you must choose Use Subchannel SBI/M3S info file (recommended)... then in the file, you must choose a subchannel file (ff9subdisk.sbi).. if you haven't, i can send it to you, ok?

I downloaded this patch from the ngemu site (its meant to be to for cheating the game...unlimited gil etc. but if you don't change anything the game starts to work :))
Thanks guys for the replies :) Everything seems to be working now, the menus in battles flicker a bit, don't know if that's to do with the fps number or something like that..

Here's a screenshot...
the battle effects are great, but the bit below, where hp, mp, and the menu with attack, item etc. are flickers (managed to take a pic when it dissapeared)

It's all there on my site, how to configure this game ;)
Rather than copying it all out and posting it here, why don't you go take a look.
