Dear pSX emulator makers and its forum's staff. I wish to make this problem of mine known so that you may help overcome it.
The problem is, I had pSX from this site, and I used game ROMs made from my physical copies into .BIN and .CUE so I may play in HDD, but during gaming I would experience freezing of the game, not emulator.
It's been 5 days of my first time gaming of pSX, and I've been unable to determine exactly how to solve this problem
I have two games : Castlevania Symphony of the Night, and Valkyrie Profile, both are . For the first game, in the middle of gaming I would experience freezing after the game has run for a set amount of time, possibly under 30 minutes. For Valkyrie Profile, there would be graphical frame freezes in places.
I don't know if this is a gaming only problem, but if it is, I apologize in advance. I must also inquire about what kind of programs , .dlls or things I need to have as PRE-REQUISITE, so I can make sure I'm on equal footing with other pSX gamers.
Thank you in advance, dear pSX developers / forum staff
No response? Please, I need help with this. I can't find others having this problem as well.
It seems like this can be isolated to an emulator-only cause of problems, because, the less processes my PC runs, the less the above described problems appear, though not nonexistant. Whereas the more I run something, the worse the problems are. Heck, even connecting to the internet or not has significant impact on the emulator performance too. I don't know what's wrong. The PC, or the emulator.

This forum isn't exactly busy so it can be overlooked or unseen for a while. Anyway my only guess is the game is unstable. Not sure how you have been saving your progress, but try saving to the memory card(s) and then load that save from the memory card(s) after a "reset" in the file menu.
Valkyrie Profile Use -r option to avoid any minor freezes; insert a memcard before you start up the game, save frequently; Possible random freezing
So it appears that the games run unstably on pSX, Castlevania is random and predictable (to maybe use a trick in the poste linked) when it hangs and Valkyrie Profile needs a parameter switch set when loading pSX to function better.
