I used the retropie setup script (the custom binaries option) & after some head scratching & a lot of googling have managed to get a couple of Xbox controllers (via xboxdrv) up & running with mame, megadrive, neo geo, snes & ZX speccy emulators. Yay! Psx, however, has me stumped! No disc images will load, & the command line always reports that no bios files can be found.
luckly i literally just got my psx stuff to work minutes ago. its a little slow and the sound a little choppy but the roms load
i learned that .7z does not work! im not sure why it shows up in emulationstation but if you go to the the source for pcsx_rearmed
it does not mention .7z anywhere. you need to unzip everything from the .7z or compressed file into the roms section. there should be a .img, .bin/.cue, etc. make sure everything has the same name.if the .img or .bin is in a ECM format you need to do a little more work.
you can follow these steps http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xFLyH6lumAc
you will also need to edit emulationstation so that it shows the rest of your roms
Code: Select all
sudo nano .emulationstation/es_systems.cfg
in the playstation section just add .bin and .BIN those are the only ones i have done so far but you may need more.
Can anyone tell me where I need to place the bios file(s?)? The likeliest place seems to be ~/RetroPie/supplementary/EmulationStation...there's a bios folder that's been created there & a .pcsx folder that's also looks a good spot based on the standalone pcsx install structure. I also can't find anything that would stand in for a pcsx config file (to point to bios & other settings).
Can anyone help or observed similar behaviour?
as for that i still have problems getting it to say that i loaded the proper bios file but from what i have read other people have the same issue even though it works. right now i have a bios file for the emulator in pretty much every place i can think of although i think it looks for the bios in
hope this helped!
