How to Fix Jumpy Screens in EPSXE


The original PlayStation in 1994 sparked a worldwide interest in 3D gaming and entertainment. The ePSXe emulator gives you the chance to play older and classic Sony PlayStation games on your computer. If you experience jumpy or erratic screen movement while playing a game, your computer is probably too fast or too slow for the ePSXe plugin settings you chose. Change the settings or try another plugin to fix the problem.

  • Click on "Config," "Video" and "Configure" if you use Pete's GPU plugin. Change "Fast" to "Nice." This slows the game down to a normal speed, eliminating jumpy screens.

  • Open the "Configure" menu if you use Pete's GPU plugin. Click "Use FPS Limit" and "FPS Limit (10-200)." Manually enter a FPS limit of 60 for NTSC games or 50 for PAL games.

  • Click "Framerate" and "Adjustment Type" if you use Knack's Software GPU Plugin. Click "FPS Limit Only" to stop jumpy screens.

  • Select "FrameRate Limit" and "Custom" if you use Lewpy's Glide GPU Plugin. Enter a value of 60 for NTSC games and 50 for PAL games.

  • Turn off any active cheats, if you use them. Cheats sometimes cause unexplainable glitches during play, including jumpy screens.

  • Run the game from an ISO file instead of a CD-ROM. ISO files usually run faster and better than CD-ROMs.

  • Update your graphics card with the newest drivers. If your graphics card is old, consider replacing it.

Tips & Warnings

  • If you cannot eliminate jumpy screens in ePSXe, use a different video plugin. Some plugins work better than others with certain computers.
