    Hey,

    I have been a big fan of Tombi/Tomba and would like to play it for the sweet memories. Well, it's pinky!!! [​IMG]

    I've already downloaded Tombi PS1 game so how do you get to play it on PC?

    Step by step guide would be lovely and make my life easier.

    Thanks. [​IMG]

    You just start that emulator and open the game?

    I've got .bin and .cue files.

    You might want to try pSX emulator instead. It's really easy to use, with awesome compatibility and you don't need to fiddle with plugins. [​IMG]


    ps, the site does look a bit dodgy, but it's safe [​IMG]

    I'd prefer that amulator as well. Much easier and MGS1 worked perfectly on it while on epsxe it just didn't.

    Awesome it works.

    Thank so much for making my day!

    I'm struggling to get SNES to work on my DS and lost my moonshell. [​IMG]

    Thanks again! [​IMG]

    psxe is much better choice if you want to get rid of the jaggies and use AA.

    Okay, I tried ePSXe and added two of the plugins ( I didn't add sound one it wasn't needed)

    And guess what...

    It crashed.

    How can I fix it? I added the plugins to the plugins folder.

    You have to add the sound one regardless. First add that one, and then try a different plugin for video too, as it could be the fact that your video card sucks, and you should try a software based plugin first. I will also advise you to not use Vista.

    I'm using a NVidia (sp?) video card. So can't be that.

    And I use XP. Okay, I'll try the sound one.

    You could still have configured your video plugin incorrectly for the video card you are using.

    Right about...here.
    Any reason not to use it on Vista? I dunno. It worked when I played some games there. >_>

    Got it working, I was using wrong file type. But I'm getting the fastup and slow down... I'm on less than 1GB ram (yeah I know it's old!! Leave me alone...!! [​IMG]) would that be reasons why?

    Naw, it works, but with a computer with less than 1GB or less of RAM, you are going to see a speed difference.

    In order to get it working perfectly, you must use a combination of good plugin and good setup. Epsxe has it's own tutorial on how to do every kind of configuring:
