    Alright, Ive looked everywhere for a solution but my emulator seems to get stuck on the screen that says “Sony Computer Entertainment Presents” and it wont ever get past it. I can still use my commands that I programed to get out of the emulator so I know its not that problem (maybe it is?).

    Im trying to run Legends of the Dragoon and Ive tried .iso files and now I have a .bin and .cue files but they get stuck at that screen. Can anyone help me out?

    sounds like your BIOS is missing, see here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r6-VOCyDoTc&t=21

    The thing is that it recognizes the BIOS but I believe that this game in particular wont start with this emulator. I have gotten other PS games to work but this one.

    Just tested, runs fine. Can make a vid of it running if you like?

    What ROM’s and BIOS were you using. A video would be amazing but i can settle for screen shots.

    Pro tip for PSX: get a U.S BIOS and use only NTSC ROMs.

    Some PAL games had anti-piracy methods coded in. For example, the PAL versions of Speed Freaks and Spyro 2 will always crash after you play a few levels – by design.

    The NTSC editions don’t have this feature so they work great 🙂
