    Sorry if this has been answered enough times, I’ve had a look through the forums and Ive been told that in order to hide .bin files and only see the .cue files , I need to edit my es_config.cfg, this directory is here /home/pi/.emulationstation

    I don’t have any additional es_config.cfg files in the separate rom directories, for a laugh I created one and added it to /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/psx directory , this did nothing.

    Here is the aforementioned line I need to add

    “DESCNAME=Sony Playstation 1
    #EXTENSION=.img .IMG .7z .7Z .pbp .PBP .bin .BIN
    EXTENSION=.cue .CUE”

    Can anyone help out please

    Hi typedan, what version of retropie are you using?

    If you are using 2.6 your es_systems.cfg will be located in /etc/emulationstation/ check out this vid if you need help: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2WGpGCn9NeI&t=91

    Once in, you can find the playstation section and delete the .bin .BIN from between the <extension> tags and they will no longer show up. You can see it in the same video at 1:56.

    Another good command in linux is find. Type ‘sudo find / -iname es_systems.cfg’ and it will locate all copies of it for you. Hope this helps!
