    What file extension do your roms have?

    .BIN also need .CUE files to work i’m pretty sure. Are it/they zipped?

    I don’t think cue is a must have but normally come with it when you create bin type formats. If they are zipped you need to unzip it, psx doesn’t read zip format.

    Hope that helps.

    If you don’t mind me jumping in here to ask my own question…

    Got the PSX running fine, most games that I’ve tried work lovely, but I can’t for the life of me get Tomb Raider 2 to work. I unpack it which gives me an ECM file and I can unpack that, which just gives me a .bin file and a heap of audio files.

    I’ve put everything into a folder and put that in my “roms/psx” directory. When I restart Retropie and access the uploaded Tomb Raider folder, none of the uploaded files seem to work when I click on them.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    @crumb The link here should help

    Inside is a link to a guide to deal with audio. I used it to get the audio tracks to be inside the bin file for Wipeout.

    @summerrain As Omnija says, a cue isnt essential, its only really needed if there are embedded tracks in the bin that need to point to certain points like where audio tracks are. If you put a .bin file in your psx rom folder, ES should definitely how you that when you restart (assuming you dont put it there as root or something, the pi user needs to read it)
