yesterday i downloaded your emulator, and it's working like a charm on my vista machine. (best emulator! good job)
but when i tried to start it on my (much older) XP system i started getting all kinds of errors.
first i got the missing .dll file error, i fixed that problem with the link you guys have on your mainpage i think that also fixed the 'failed to initialize D3D' thing. (not sure, all i know is that that error is gone too )
i also got the 32-bit error, even though my screen was set to 32-bit solved that by switching to 16-bit
now when i start psxfin, everything looks okay, the 'DOS' windows comes up, and i have to select a language. so i select english, then the 'PSX V1.13' window comes up and i get this error
"b0rken unhandled exception. save a crash dump?"
i have searched all over the forums, and most topics about this end up unanswered cause people give no info...
now i'm not sure what kind of info you need, but here are my specs (i know it's a VERY old pc lol, but i hope it's good enough :S )
Pentium 3, 933Mhz ~390 MB RAM some really old videocard, 3dfx voodoo shhh (updated drivers etc) Windows XP pro (sp2)
i tried removing the psx.ini file and starting the program, but the same error occurs.
hmm, well i found a driver from 2004 (from guru3d ^^, one site that i KNOW is clean)
but i still get the same error in the meantime i also tried a different emulator
i downloaded 'epsxe' (sorry if i'm not allowed to mention the name, i'll edit if so)
thing is, this emulator works (perfectly... steady 60fps etc) it just does NOT play FF7, half the screen is black in battles, so i have no idea what i am doing. i also don't like the plugins. (setting it up is a b1tch)
so i really don't want to keep using it. (i heard it has trouble with all FF's, and those are the only games i have left)
