Of Xenogears and emulators...

I’m trying to get Xenogears to work well on an emulator so that a friend of mine who lack a playstation can enjoy the greatness thereof. However it doesn’t seem to like the idea.
I am using epsxe, with pete’s d3d gpu plugin, eternal spu plugin, and the native cdr support.
The problem that I am having is that the text boxes don’t want to display correctly, the menus look like crap, and some of the sprites have strange seams in them.
I have way more than enough machine to handle the game (it runs at over 200 fps if I forget to use frame limiting).

Ask Ryuuhi, he made the Xenogears shrine using ePSXe.
