A simple script to switch bios psx4all
« on: January 06, 2010, 10:58:37 am »
Based on this topic on the compatibility of the psx4all games:
http://www.gp32spain.com/foros/showthread.php?t=68644

The games have with a variety of bios possibles, thinking that I proposed to my friend who created a script that selects the bios (had seen something similar here to select of zImage)
The script makes the BIOS selectable dmenu, avoiding the hassle of having to connect the usb dingoo in every time you want to change bios

Understanding how the script:
must put the bios without the extension. bin folder (local/emulators/psx4all)

example
the extension is "scph7003.bin," be so scph7003.
soon after to put the bios of each script that you want to use that folder ...
(local/dmenu/scripts/psx4all).

How to script each bios:

Edit an existing bios and so change the following compound:

#/bin/sh
cd /usr/local/emulators/psx4all <---- where is the psx4all only change if it is not in this folder.
cp -f (nameofyourbios) SCPH1001.BIN <---- command to copy the bios which has (nameofyourbios) you should put the name of the bios that you will use without the extension. bin.
chmod +x psx4all; ./psx4all

the bios most famous are: (not included in the download)
scph1000
scph1001
scph1002
scph5502
scph7001
scph7003
scph7502

Thank you!

I expect psx4all will have a bios selection feature eventually (hopefully a per-game setting), but this is an acceptable solution until then.

./ .next: line 2:  ./psx4all: not found - this is Displayed in the terminal, I know I`ve followed the info correctly

Any Ideas?
