so i tried zsnes and that runs flawlessly! i have my usb ps2 joystick on too and it runs great! if i am playing a game like DKC i use scanlines if it's a vector style game like pilotwings i use hq2x setting and it looks smooth as silk!
Crashes after starting to play anything
? I've played / finished quite a few games like:
... Donkey Kong Country
... Super Star Wars
... Super Star Wars - Empire Strikes Back
... Super Star Wars - Return of the Jedi
Just tried Pilot Wings
and it seemed fine...
Maybe it does have something to do with your Pentium 4 (Prescott) processor
On one laptop I have a Mobile Intel Pentium 4 - M CPU 1.80GHz
processor and on the other a Intel Pentium III 697MHz
processor and it runs perfectly.
Stupid question but have you tried exiting stuff in your System Tray
like virus software etc?
