Im not sure if FF9 works fully. Please try this and see if you get the same problem.
From the saved game (your with the moogle) climb up the ladder. Follow the rat boy across all the planks, eventually he will say something like "this is the last one, just over here and were at the castle". The next scene loads and it sits there...doesnt do anything. As far as I can tell it just crashes as you cant skip the section, or as a tell tale sign, select Vivi's inventory.
Anyone else find this please, if not, what settings did you use?
PS...isn't the dingoo just one of those machines you wish you had years ago. Utterly fantastic little machine!
