To run a game from a disk image in a supported format (.BIN, .ISO, .IMG, .CCD, .MDS, .PBP, .ECM), click on File -> Run ISO in the main program window and select the image. To run a disk image in an unsupported format, you will need to mount it with a separate program and configure ePSXe to use the virtual drive which the image is mounted to (Config -> Cdrom -...

Depending on what graphics plugin you're using, you might be able to disable the framerate limit (which will speed up the game, normally). It varies based on plugin and version, but some hotkeys to try are F4 (toggles limit in ePSXe >= 1.7.0), 9 (unknown versions), and the later F-keys (F9 to F12), which adjust the frameskipping/limiting settings. Check ...

Most, if not all, PSX games discs only have a single data track, which makes .cue files totally pointless for PSX game images. If your .cue files contain only the following, then you are free to delete them; if they contain more than a single track record, or the index is not 00:00:00, then you should keep them. FILE "whatever.bin" BINARY TRACK 01 MODE2/...

An ideal emulator acts as close as possible to the original hardware when playing the game, so the issue you're describing, where memory cards take a lot of time to read, is probably an issue with the Playstation software or the game themselves. Aside from reverse engineering either of those, which I believe is beyond the scope of most people, there isn't ...

Based on the info about where you installed the ePSXe folder (as you describe it, your Personal User folder with your Documents, Music folders etc) this is most likely a permissions issue. Try moving the ePSXe directory to another directory. For example, I have ePSXe installed to C:\Core\ePSXe and put games in a sub directory under that (C:\Core\ePSXe\...

Literally change the extension to .iso. You can do this manually by editing the filename, you should probably get a warning verifying that you want to change the extension. If you have a file with the extension .ecm you first need to decompress it. Use an app called ECM in the App Store if you're using Mac or ECM Tools if you're on windows. I've done this ...

You must start the game normally instead of loading a save state to make visual rumble work. The game remembers if the controller is rumble-enabled, so you need to restart the game to make it recheck. After you have done so, you may make new save states and visual rumble will work if loading them.

It looks like I have found an alternative solution. I'm using another emulator, PSXeven, and it runs the game perfectly, with CD or ISO. I'd like to know why I'm not able to play this game using ePSXe though, since I've checked some compatibilities lists and it should work fine.

You could try installing the program as win XP/7 compatible and run the program when installing with admin rights. These options can be found when right clicking the install file(if ePSXe is already installed, remove it then install it again) I have had install and running issues with many programs (not just games) and I have found when installing anything ...

You can just use something like Daemon Tools, and mount the .cue file to a virtual drive. Then, configure ePSXE to use the virtual drive. The other method would be to Daemon Tools, and use the .cue file to burn to a disk. Then use Daemon Tools program to create an ISO of the disk. In this method it's best to get a CD-RW disk so you're not wasting disks. ...

The best one to use is probably PEC. There is a nice guide that runs through the setup and how to add it to ePSXE, as well as common issues (such as cheats not working, etc).

I may be wrong in assuming this, or your disc may be scratched to all holy hell, but... Have you tried running this game from your disc? I could just be underthinking the problem but some emulators can do this, I was able to play my old scratched Tekken 3 from disc. I also cleaned mine and did the peanut butter trick to do so.

As kotekzot stated, you might have a faulty ROM. If the games doesn't work for you on both these very fine emulators, and it does work for other people, my first guess is a bad ROM as well. That said, here are some things to try out: Obviously, you can try downloading a new ROM from somewhere (sorry, I can't post any links) Try running the emulator ...
