Well, you're not going to get much help that way, superpsx. You need to give us a rundown of your system, tell us how you tried to install and run pSX, and what error messages you get.
Ultima's pSX Frontend is extremely useful with pSX, but it's not magic. You need to try and get pSX going by itself first.
The most likely reasons for pSX crashing immediately you try to run it are: inadequate videocard; inadequate soundcard and, in Windows, insufficiently updated DirectX 9.0c or, in Linux, libgtkglext1 hasn't been installed.
I can't be more specific than that until you tell us more... a lot more.
well i'v got a really basic computer it's not the best thing out but it can be very fast for what is inside it I have a P2 with 768mb of ram a 60gb hard drive 666 mhz and thats about it but this thing is really fast it surpasses my dads computer which has an AMD athalon xp 3500+ and 2gb of ram I guess he just doesn't take care of it

Sune: XD... Cut him some slack. All he got wrong was the number (the 667 MHz Pentium 3 processors were often considered to be 666 MHz for obvious reasons and also the fact that some people talked about them being 666.66 MHz and just wanted to round down). And who knows what the computer will report it as (my computer reports many different processor speeds depending on what I use to check it). But yeah, not sure where he got the "2" from... LOL.
superpsx: Don't expect to be able to run all that many games with pSX on that system. If we *do* get through this though, it'd be really awesome of you to give some more feedback on how different games run on that system (I've been wanting someone with around those specs to report how games play for them). So in the console window (the second one with the black background), it says *nothing* at all? Do you have a proper BIOS in its directory (preferably SCPH1001.bin)?
I think it was something added in pSX 1.11 because anything 1.10 and under works on my computer because I use system mechanic everyday at 2AM my computer can handle pSX and the games run as smooth as if they were being played on the actual PSX game consolethe games I have tested so far are Bloody Roar 2, Spryo 2: Ripto's Rage, Need For Speed 3: Hot Persuit, and my favourite Brave Fencer Musashi
The problem, superpsx, is that the last two versions of pSX have included SSE instructions (not intentionally, it seems), and your Pentium 2 doesn't include these. You won't be able to run pSX v1.11 or 1.12 on that machine.
However, now that pSX Author has realised the SSE instructions have been included, it seems he will remove them for the next release and may issue a WIP in the meantime. So, until either of those events, it's back to v1.10...
