    pcsx problem

    the game starts super fast, then just freezes and I have to force quit

    could it just be the game, or what?

    Re: pcsx problem

    You're going to have to provide a few more details if anyone is going to help you.

    What game?
    What does pcsx output to the terminal when it locks?
    What video hardware/drivers are you using?
    Which video plugin are you using and have you tried adjusting the settings?
    Etc.

    Basically as much info as you can provide the more help you're likely to get in return.
    It's not always the care but it helps .

    game is DBZ: Legends, but so far that's the only game I've gotten ANYthing out of

    looks like DFInput is the obvious problem, but I'm not really sure what that is, prolly a graphic?

    that's everything from starting, loading iso, the start of the game, and freezing

    Re: pcsx problem

    I couldn't get pcsx running very well either, and tried a good 5 or 6 games.

    Try pSX, maybe? I wrote a guide....

    Either way, good luck.

    Okay, I can tell you that Legend of Mana works just fine in pcsx (I'm even using the internal HLE bios.)

    I'm running a version of pcsx-df newer than the one in the Ubuntu repos though.
    http://pcsx-df.sourceforge.net/

    Below is a picture of my settings, including controller inputs.

    If that doesn't do it, I can walk you through compiling pcsx-df or if you are running Ubuntu 9.04 and 32-bit, I can provide a deb for you in that case.

    Re: pcsx problem

    ok, so I got all excited cause Legend of Mana randomly started working... made my character and everything.....

    but once I get passed the opening scene/song, it freezes again

    still getting these errors

    RGB not found. Using YUV.
    DFInput error: could not open device /dev/input/js0!
    DFInput warning: device already initialized.

    btw: thanks for the configs, but that's pretty much what mine are too

    Re: pcsx problem

    Alright, maybe there is an issue with sound, so I posted that config too. However, the dfinput thing is odd, you've configured a controller I'm guessing... Also, if you have a "speed" problem, make sure Auto FPS Limiting is ticked in the pcsx Video driver config

    So, if you do have Ubuntu jaunty, 32-bit, I've posted a simple deb to install.
    After installing, go to Configuration -> Preferences in pcsx,
    Path to Plugins:
    /usr/local/lib/games/psemu

    See if that solves it, it may just be a bug with the old version.

    Re: pcsx problem

    your sound config was different from mine so I changed it... but it didn't help at all

    and I'm using 64 bit jaunty

    *edit*
    yea I tried getting a controller, but it doesn't work :-\

    Re: pcsx problem

    Well, can't make a 64-bit deb at the moment...

    One other thing, what is your memory card configuration in pcsx?
    Make sure you've formatted both memory cards (virtual of course.)

    Maybe the emulator is crashing when the game is checking those, and finds no space to save.
