Fullscreen PS1 emulator?

Sat Oct 06, 2018 5:36 pm

Hello there. I followed this tutorial to install a PS1 emulator on my full Raspbian Desktop:
http://blog.sheasilverman.com/2012/09/b ... pberry-pi/

The only thing is: the window is really small. Combinations of F11+Whatever or simply F11 didnt make the window fullscreen...

How could I achieve a fullscreen window? It is not resisable and it doesnt use OpenGL (I heard it was hard to fullscreen an OpenGL thingy :lol: ).

Cheers.

You're following really old instructions. Anything about Raspberry Pi more than a couple of years old will be misleading.

Anyway, PCXSR is in the repos, and can be installed using:

Code: Select all

sudo apt install pcsxr
In the Configuration / Screen option, you can set full-screen.

Cool! Only thing is, it runs really bad. Im getting 0.5fps just when im trying to boot spyro the dragon ***IN WINDOWED MODE :(***. Tried with Crash 1 & 3 and I get similar results. Any tips? The tutorial I followed is giving me a nice 60fps!

One of the pcsx_rearmed source links here: https://retropie.org.uk/docs/Playstation-1/ ?

(please don't bump posts. We're not holding anything from you - if no-one here has answered within a couple of days, no-one here knows what you're asking. The Raspberry Pi is a learning computer: you've got to do some research yourself)

How am I supposed to run this on full Raspbian? I know it had something to do with the "build from source" thing (probably) but again im gessing. Any tips? :) And thanks for the quick reply.

I found how to fullscreen Minecraft Pi:
https://www.minecraftforum.net/forums/m ... -screen#c7

Is there a way to make it work for pcsx_rearmed?

no, that's a source modification in the Minecraft code, so it won't work for the PS1 emulator.

Hello there.
I managed to generate a preview of the window here:

Isnt that the proof that we can make it fullscreen? Is there a way to make the preview fullscreen..?

EDIT: If you type ALT+F11, the window gets undecorated and changes positions to top left up. It made Minecraft Pi fullscreen tho! :)

That's proof that SimpleScreenRecorder knows how to capture window content. Not much else, sorry.

PCSX-ReARMed allows full screen using F11

https://github.com/notaz/pcsx_rearmed

I used the following to build on my Pi3B+:

Code: Select all

cd ~
git clone https://github.com/notaz/pcsx_rearmed
sudo apt-get install libpng-dev libsdl1.2-dev
cd ~/pcsx_rearmed/
git submodule init && git submodule update
CFLAGS=-march=armv7-a ./configure --sound-drivers=sdl
make
./pcsx

TIL that the commercial PlayStation Classic uses PCSX-ReARMed.

Nice video, thanks for the acknowledgement 😃

Might be a nice touch to see a game playing at the end.

Your right, but since it nows uses OpenGL to run fullscreen, I couldnt get SimpleScreenRecorder to record the screen :P

Im now trying to make a shortcut to open Spyro the dragon from my start menu.
I tried:

Code: Select all

./pcsx --load "/home/pi/EMU/Spyro the Dragon.bin"
With no luck. Any tips? The error message in the logs told me it was missing some kind of -cdfile parameter. It also said I could load PSX EXEs? :lol:
