Which Emulator

So I cam across this page quite randomly and remember this game from my childhood. The run looks pretty interesting and I wouldn't mind at least trying it out.

My question is, which emulator do you recommend for running? I imagine I would probably run NTSC version to match the other runs but have never really done my emulator speedrunning before.

Any advice would be awesome :)

Emulator: ePSXe Version: 1.8.x, 1.9.x or 2.0.0

Version: All runs so far have been done on NTSC versions, but it's your choice.

Emulator: ePSXe is the one I use. Just watch some tutorials on youtube to set plugins and bios if needed and you'll be ready to go.

About the runs, it's easy to become frustrated with deaths and movement in this game, because of the outdated controls... I think this game is harder to run than tomb raider in my opinion, because it's an action game with tomb raider controls lol

Just keep trying and you will master enough to have decent runs. It gets time. =) I look foward to watch news runs.

Good luck!

Already had that emulator and found an NTSC ISO that I think is a valid version (no idea how to check).

Just did the first few levels casually on Wussy difficulty. Gonna do a full casual playthrough to get my bearings and then might start practicing some runs.

Yeah the controls are something else: my hands started to ache after about an hour of continuous play.

Do we allow use of the analogue stick or is it dpad only? Can't remember if the original game supported analogue or not.

It depends, you have to play until you get used to it, but I recommend using the analog For the emulator settings use this: https://i.imgur.com/clgorML.jpg

I have no idea if the original game suported analog stick but it's ok to use for me. It might help if you get used to it. @Trebr0n uses the analog stick to do a fast 180 quick turn only when placing the crystals. I use only the D pad all the time. It's personal how you prefer =)

I recently got back to running this game. I had to do major changes in my pc, so I'ts been a while, I'm kinda fresh starting again, getting used to the controls again.

I'll try to make my times closer to @Trebr0n 's
