View Full Version : [SOLVED] PCSX R - FInal Fantasy VII freezes

March 31st, 2012, 06:19 AM
I've been trying to play FFVII. I have the original CDs, and I know they work - I used to play on my PSX and PS2. Anyway, I go to start a new game, the cutscene starts, and it freezes a few seconds in. The sound stutters a bit too. I've tried different BIOS, no sound, more cache, no cache, etc. Other games work, including Lunar 2 which I am also playing from the original CDs. Anyone have any idea why this might be? Should I maybe try ripping FFVII and playing from the hard drive?

This is on Lucid, with PCSX-R 1.9.92.

Also, this is the US Greatest Hits release, no idea if that makes any difference, but too much info is better than too little, no?

Okay, copying the CD to harddrive seems to have done it, I'm a couple minutes in and it runs fine.
