    Default Resident Evil 3 freezing

    Howdy all.

    Recently had to re-download ISOs elsewhere, as I lost my old collection via getting my laptop repaired. Everything seems fine so far, with the exception of Resident Evil 3- Nemesis. At certain points(namely, in the bar where you meet Brad, and just after shooting an oil drum to kill a horde of zombies), the game will freeze just before I would normally transition to a new screen, with the music still playing normally.

    I've downloaded the ISO from three different sources, so I doubt it's down to that. My guess is there's something wrong with my emulator setup (drivers, or something else), or my laptop. Before I sent the laptop in to get fixed, I'd played through the game something like three times, without any problems. Does anyone have any advice for me on this? I'd really appreciate it. If it helps, my graphics driver's configuration is below:

    Could you message me a walkthrough for installing this system? Also, keep in mind my laptop is not a gaming laptop with state-of-the-art graphics and whatnot.

    Edit: Just checked private messages, and remembered we'd msgd about this a while back. I am on discord, but if it would be possible could we go back and forth in private messages here? Thanks.

    I just checked the retroarch website. Whenever I click on either a download or installer for Windows, it takes me to a "not found" page.

    my junker Laptop can run RetroArch just fine so I'm assuming you will be playing stuff in no time.

    I would prefer a real time session to teach you how to use it but if you don't want to you don't
