    Hi all!

    kinda new to this whole ES thing and just got an RPi2 to enjoy it.

    Everything is working dandy except for the fact that in ES3b3 PSX games do show up as bin/cue but not when the 7zip is added.

    Any ideas? Thanx!

    That’s because the emulator only reads bin and cue (and iso) files, not 7zip. You need to extract your 7zip files into bin and cue in order for it to show up in emulationstation.

    Ah strange! I thought it did support 7zip. Ah well, that explains a *LOT* hahaha!

    Thanx for the reply!

    Emulation Station will currently see these files:
    .bin .cbn .cue .img .m3u .mdf .pbp .toc .z .znx

    Some info on the Wiki here:

    Good tip there about the BIOS (although libretro-pcsx-rearmed does have a basic inbuilt bios that will support some games)

    I’ll try to do a video on PSX soon – but its pretty easy unless there are multiple tracks/CDs. (I take .cue out of Emulation Station so it doesnt show duplicates.)
