Since it was published in 2001, "The Legend of Dragoon" has been one of the most commercially successful games, with a large fan base made up of PS2 and PS3 owners. The PlayStation version is the only one available, so PC users have to use the indirect way of using an emulator to run the game on their computers.
Visit the Emulator Zone (see Resources) and click on the PlayStation emulator, under the "Sony" category, from the list at the far left of the screen.
Select the "ePSXe" emulator you want to download from the list of the available programs.
Choose "ePSXe 1.7.0" from the available versions. The rule is that the newest version (1.7.0 as of January 2011 for this game) is the best one, as it fixes bugs of the previous ones.
Decompress the files, using a program such as WinRar, as they will have been downloaded in a ".rar" format. Read the "Readme" file provided, which contains essential information on how to run the emulator and the necessary programs to make it work.
Download the game. Enter the Torrents website (see Resources) and type "The Legend of Dragoon" on the search bar, which is beneath the site's logo.
Choose the file named "[REL] PSX Legend of Dragoon ENG" from the list of options. Don't be tempted by the high number of seeds of the other files, as this is the only option not converted for PSP use.
Download the file on your hard drive by clicking on the "Download .torrent" link. If you don't have the necessary applications to start downloading it, check the small letters next to the download option. Links are provided to install the "Vuze" or uTorrent" program and continue with the game's download. Once downloaded, decompress the ".rar" game file and start playing "Legend of Dragoon" on your computer.
Read the emulator's system requirements and PlayStation's specifications on the Emulator Zone website to make sure your computer can run the program.
To abide by copyright laws, make sure you own a hard copy of the video game before using an emulator of the game.
