I've started FFIV again on my PS3 and there has been some odd glitches in the game. Any environment pieces like columns, dressers, have black flashes emanating from them. Also things like water or gaps in dungeons flash as well. Sometimes when I'm entering an area the game's music skips for a bit. Is there something wrong with my disc? I checked it for scratches and it seems to have no more than was there when I was playing it on my PS2.

Probably just the PS1 emulator on PS3 being terrible, because you know, it is really smurfing terrible.

Play it on GBA instead or something

The original ones had hardware emulation, later ones had software emulation and for the slim they got rid of it entirely.

No. The original one had software emulation, the later ones had software emulation, and the slim has software emulation.

Learn something new every day. I always thought the same applied to the PS1 and PS2 emulation.

PS1 emulation is way too simple to require additional hardware :p, it's all done in software on PS3.

Also, all the PS1 Classics that are available for sale on PSN are just CD-images of the actual PS1 games, they don't have a single changed line of code in them. The PS3 run these through its emulator too.

But again, the emulator looks terrible and lacks a ton of features that ePSXe on PC can do, and even the PS2 emulator can make the games look prettier than the PS3 can.

Yet it still crashes my FF:Origins. :mad2:

Refer to my point of Sony doing a terrible job even if it's simple :p

I suggest playing a different version of the game like Final Fantasy IV: Complete Collection on the PSP.

Don't have the money for a PSP and the game. I'll just play it like it is. Last time I tried to figure out how to download an emulator I just got fustrated.
