View Full Version : FF8 FPS question
December 31st, 2001, 23:47
Hi all I'm new
so heres my question when i play FF8 and I adjust me FPS to 60 when i try to play FF8 it runs alright but when i get into battle it freezes up not just the game the whole computer....
and when i leave the ePSXe to choose for me the game runs way to fast...
what can i do?

I think the freeze you're experiencing isn't due to the frame limiter.
Post your plugin configuration and your system specs here.

Pete's DX6 D3D Driver 1.55

Could you also post your computer's specs?

I'll need a lot more :P
just give your system specs (which processor, graphic card are you using, ram etc)
that should be enough.

Well i just edited my last post and it has some of my comp. specs...take a look and see if you can help me plz

argh...I always had troubles to play w/ plugins using hardware acceleration w/ ePSXe on a comp having a Kyro card (as you have).
Maybe it's due to the emulator, or the card...
Sorry i cannot help, but you can always try a software gpu or give a try w/ FPSE using pete's ogl or d3d...
Maybe some people who own a Kyro card here could help.
Sorry I cannot do that though.

Also, I'd suggest you to post in the ePSXe main section, and ask if anyone has a kyro card.
I'm sure you'll get quick and more feedback than in this section.

You poor bastard. I have a Kyro too though. I guess that puts us both in the same boat. Trust me, it will never run right. I know a few people have gone the software route, by running their games in Software mode. I refuse to do that, because it makes the games look like crap (all the ones I play anyway. Besides, my processor isn't that fast). I have resorted to hassling PowerVR to make working drivers.
I have heard some people claim success with the OpenGL plugin. Myself, I have just found it exceptionally slow, to the point that it is slower than the soft plugin. I have had limited success with Segu's D3D plugin as well. I suggest you give it a try.
At any rate, I have crashed my OS many a time with Pete's D3D plugin. I would suggest not using it, unless you want to reinstall windows sometime soon. I just hope that whatever is causing this problem is worked out sometime soon. I am getting sick of finding new ways of corrupting my OS.

Damm i hate this card of mine :mad:
I wish i had waited and got something better, thanks for your help but that didn't work either, could the driver for my Kyro be the problem?

Kool Egde, I'm right there with ya. I bash my head against the wall pretty much daily for buying this worthless piece of crap.
I have tried all the recent driver revisions (and some old), without success. I have tried windows 9x drivers, and I installed Windows XP to test the XP drivers. The XP drivers are even slower than the 9x drivers, and they have the same problems.
I have heard that PowerVR is releasing new drivers sometime this month, and hopefully my card will work better. Don't really get your hopes up though.
