Rayman 2 (PAL) cinematic problem
I used the search feature and no results came up for "rayman", so assume hope this hasn't already been discussed...
In-game cinematics (I'm pretty sure they're real-time) in Rayman 2 are jittery - smooth for a couple of frames then a sudden jump (the sound does not "jitter" however). This occurs when starting a new game, and also in the actual game whenever you lose control of Rayman and watch him do something (eg. talk to NPC's). I've tried running off of CD, off an ISO, changing plugin settings, etc. but nothing helped. Using the subchannel precaching feature (from epsxecutor) sped up the sound/cinematics (to a 'fast-forward' speed), but even then the jumps were noticeable.
My CPU is P4 1.5 Ghz, I use Windows XP Pro with a GeForce2 MX and SB Live! Value.

Anyone else seen this before, or have any ideas?

nm problem solved
never mind - I can't believe I didn't think of this sooner...
Once I set the frame limiter to 50 (this is a PAL version) it worked - I guess this game has some kind of timer during the cutscenes so that it only delivers 50 fps.
hope this helps someone else out in the future!
