    Posted this over on ngemu, but that forum seems pretty dead, so I figured I'd repost here to see if any of the local wizards con help me out (or at least replicate the issue so I know I'm not insane).

    I'm having trouble using Pete's OpenGL2 2.9 video plugin with multiple games (but the one I notice it most in is Harvest Moon: Back to Nature). Before I go any further, I'm using ePSXe 1.9.25, and below is my configuration for the video plugin:

    While playing the game, everything renders perfectly and runs at 1080p60. However, the problem I'm having is that there is a strange horizontal line that loops through the screen (starts at the top, slowly drifts towards the bottom over a number of frames, and then starts back at the top again). The effect is very similar to screen tearing, and that's what I thought it was originally, but after messing with frame-limiting and vsync options in both ePSXe and my graphics card control application, I now know it isn't.

    The issue does not happen with the software renderer, so I know it's something related to the plugin. Can anyone provide any insight as to what may be causing the problem?
