    Hey guys, so I've been trying to emulate FF8 (with the original discs) using a custom save file. I'm starting at the beginning of Disc 3 but everytime I go to meet Quistis at the front gate, ePSXe encounters a "Problem" and closes. Does anyone have perfect settings for this game?

    Also, in the scenes with Elone and Squall on the elevator platform, they always fly off the screen.

    ~Thanks everyone!

    It could be your save file but.. yeah you'll want to use ePSXe or PCSXR. Latest revision as of this post: http://www.emucr.com/2014/05/pcsx-reloaded-svn-r90499.html

    Also for sound you'll want to use http://sourceforge.net/projects/peopsspu110.u/files/ as that's considered the best. For graphics you'll want to use petes opengl2(without getting into details click best on the gpu config) http://www.pbernert.com/html/gpu.htm#OGL2

    There are game hacks as well and I "think" FF8 requires one of them. You'll want to enable the game hack in the GPU setting.

    That's all there is to it. As I said though it sounds like the save file is messing up but who knows. Try PCSXR.
