Nevermind i googled it and got passed it.
Your download seems to be missing a keyfile named "zlib"

Final Fantasy IX
My next problem is: Game menus (example) -Attack, or Use- Do not display. Game runs great with no glitches or lag, an nice quality. But no luck on those menus...i'm playing blind.

download it here and put it in your epsxe folder

whats the best video plugin for my graphics card?
the one that works best ;) I think the wizard tells you what is good for nvidia but it depends on the game also,PEoPS d3d 7 I think is what I use.

Be a bit more clear? Setting up in the plug-in troubles I suspect? If so try this...

select the mapping you want to config, click the button you want ( keep it held down ), click the next mapping you want to pick and repeat. If you dont keep the button held down it will unselected that button. I can not believe the epsxe team let this bug go on so long but they did.
