Just a quick guess , if no system_directory configured , maybe the bios file needs to sit in the same folder as the libretro.so your running in this case ( if defaults are left ) ~/Retropie/emulatorcores/pcsx_rearmed/Tx0Rx0 wrote:So system_directors is unset for me, essentially everything is grayed out. I placed the file in ~/Retropie/roms/psx/, and the file is SCPH1001.bin. Emulation station sees it because I enabled .bin inputs, but pcsx rearmed does not. If I change system_directory to, say, /home/pi/emusystem/, It still doesn't work. Am I using the right file, or am I missing something obvious? Thanks for the help.
If there is such a guide or someone takes his time to write such a guide, the wiki of RetroPie would be a perfect place for thatrobrush wrote: Is there any kind of guide for getting pcsx running on retropie?

I think it depends on which version of Pcsx_ReARMed your using in RetroPie. The Binary will accept pretty much ANY bios, but I have found the RetroArch Core is a little more selective, try changing the Bios File Name to scph5501.bin, it worked for me. Additionally if running the Binary version (rather than the RetroArch Core) there is a 'Built In' HLE Bios, its just less compatible (some Titles wont work and/or have issues).
'All other emulator cores work except PPSSPP'
I doubt that would work to an acceptable level on the RPi anyway! The PSP is closer to a PS2 in raw processing power than a PS1.

I cant advise on the Emulation Station cfg script as I don't use it. However I do use RetroArch, on running and selecting an Image it searches the same folder where the .cue & .bin files are for the Bios. The Binary has to be compiled separately from the Source Code, I find its faster than the RetroArch Core anyway (it has built in OpenGLES (fullscreen) or SDL (640x480) rendering). When running you can either use the Built In GUI to select the Bios and save the config, or put it with the executable and run straight from Command Line. Try running the Pcsx_ReARMed Binary 'Stand Alone', if it then works at least you know its an issue with your Emulation Station Script.
