Tagged: PSX BIOS path
11/13/2013 at 21:22 #3151
I made a lot of search about my issue but I could not find any good response. My question is easy. In raspberry, where is the BIOSs path for PSX where I can copy my BIOS files? Currently the ‘native’ BIOS is very weak and it is misleading that I start a PSX game and it says in yellow ‘No BIOS found’.
Thank you!11/19/2013 at 15:41 #3186
i have the same problem…the paths i found in other forums don´t work…11/19/2013 at 16:02 #3189
The native bios seems to be lack of quality, some of the psx games have graphical glitches, wrong colors etc and low fps (dunno if bios version fault tough)11/21/2013 at 20:18 #3202
I have the same problem too, but the first time that I tried to run a psx game it worked! told that it had no bios but the game worked… Now I can’t play any psx game…11/27/2013 at 10:40 #3295
I got it! I have psx games working! I think I had two different issues:
First of all, You can choose a system directory editing this file:
I choosed this one:
And I put here my pcsx1001.bin file. Im trying to do the same with neogeo.bin for MAME…
Next I saw that the error (The screen with the errors is ultra fast, but making a video with the phone will work) was that my libreto.so must be renamed to pcsx_rearmed_libreto.so, and thats all!!
I hope this will help someone.12/06/2013 at 07:08 #3440
Motorhead, I think you have the right idea about the systemdirectory, but I’m not sure about renaming the libretro.so file. Mine still looks for libretro.so exclusively. Also, did you mean retro instead of reto? Just curious, still trying to get this to work 110%.12/06/2013 at 09:13 #3443
Great work here! If you have found a working solution it would be great if you could add these information to https://github.com/retropie/RetroPie-Setup/wiki/PCSX-Core-Playstation-1.12/06/2013 at 17:32 #3444
Hi! Sorry, it was a mistake, it’s libretro.so you’re right. The error given from Pcsx_rearmed was in a 1.8, and that solved the issue. Few days ago I reinstalled a fresh 1.9.1 image and there was no signal from this error… there is no need to rename libretro.so now.12/06/2013 at 23:22 #3454
Okay, awesome, thanks for helping to clear that up. Also, I got mine to work with a specified bios on the most recent version. Here’s a write-up:
Create the directory to store BIOS files:
Make sure you copy your bios files into that directory with no capitalization in any part of the name or file extension.
Next, edit the file:
and add the line:
system_directory = /home/pi/RetroPie/BIOS
Thank should do it. If anything doesn’t work with that solution, holler down below.12/06/2013 at 23:33 #3455

i have the same problem with version 2.3!
i’m not able to get the BIOS for psx to work.
does anybody have a solution ?09/13/2014 at 22:09 #64023
Logré de que ya no aparezca el mensaje de “no BIOS found, bugs expected”, pero no noto alguna mejoría, así que no estoy seguro de que sirva, pero lo que yo hice fue poner una Bios en la ruta /opt/retropie/emulatorcores/pcsx_rearmed/ con el nombre “scph1001.bin” y edité el retroarch.cfg que está en /opt/retropie/config/all/ y hay una línea que dice “system_config =” y agregué la dirección de dónde estaba la bios. Si, uso la versión 2.3. También necesito ayuda. Con Dino Crisis ocurre un error visual en el menú de objetos y eso, y también en el menú de PlayStation. Se ven muchas líneas negras en la pantalla, dificultando la lectura, si alguien me puede ayudar con esto se lo agradecería mucho.01/18/2015 at 23:37 #85378
Figured it out, in newest retropie, they go into
Not in the subfolders of that folder.
So in the above folder you should have all your SCPH????.bin files.01/19/2015 at 18:10 #85421
Has anyone successfully run PSX games with the new Retropie 2.4.1 beta image? Mine always crash regardless of which BIOS file I use. All PSX game start up just fine but crash within a minute.01/19/2015 at 20:57 #85424
I have – although I found compatibility to be somewhat poor. I did find some games that worked though. Hopefully compatibility will improve with updates but Crash_Bandicoot worked for example.01/28/2015 at 05:13 #86035
I had the same problem, all of my psx games were working just fine in 2.3 but once I upgraded to 2.4.2 they crash halfway through- I have the proper BIOS and everything. Hopefully someone comes up with a solution for this bug.
