psx roms not showing up?
They should definitively show up but mednafen only accepts bin/cue files.
In what format your isos are ? Bin only ?

ok one is a bin and the other is iso so no good?

EDIT:Put a bin/cue of exhumed but when launching just get thrown back to the games list

Make sure first that you put mednafen-09x.cfg (found in the zip) in /media/home/.mednafen,
if you don't then it will not work.

Also, running iso files from the internal memory does not work.
Instead, put your PS1 games on a micro-sd and it will work.
Make sure you have the proper bioses for each region too.

Your bioses are probably not good dumps then or you forgot to put them all.
Could you please give my the MD5 hashes of your bioses ?
It's working on my side here but like i said, it is very slow.

EDIT: This could be a bad cue file too, i have personally encountered all lot of these...
Could you please give it to me ?

Really good emulator, especially the PcEngine one.. would be nice to be able to hide the others from the emulators menu, I really only use one. I know it's only one opk but it should be possible to remove the thumbnails from the menu at least. Anyway thanks for the good work.

yes, this is entirely possible but however, i plan to work from scratch so this might not happen before a while anyways...
You could try to do it manually by opening the opk as a ZIP file with 7zip and then remove all the other desktop file. (but keep the pce desktop one)

Thanks. It doesn't work though (file cannot be opened with 7zip, error) so I'll wait for the next batch :)

I have updated Mednafen.
It is a tiny hair faster, fixes some bugs and now comes in several opk files instead of one.

However...
SET YOUR FTP CLIENT TO BINARY MODE OR ELSE YOU WILL HAVE TROUBLE
PLAYING GAMES !

You won't believe me but that "bug" alone caused me a lot of trouble...

EDIT: Pushed a small update that fixes the sound issues with Mednafen.

Is there any command while playing to set a normal aspect ratio ? by default its slightly streched and make the typo looking not very good (you can see what i mean if you try temper for exemple).

Anytime @gameblabla 8====D------:😂

@Qubits you can toggle thru aspect ratio with the combination of holding up on the power switch while pushing button A :)

@Quickman it doesnt work for PC Engine, the only way to change aspect ratio is press start + B but it's stlll streched, here is a comparaison of the aspect ratio of Temper (on top) and Mednafen :

If anyone knows how to make mednafen have the perfect aspect ratio of Temper, please let me know.

I don't know what your complains are...
Temper IS stretching the game and in a horrible way. (the pixels are not crisp)
Mednafen on the other hand, is displaying the game at it's native resolution. (using Start+B of course)

What you are complaining is the fact that Mednafen, when scaling up the game,
applies linear filtering.

I guess you could try to modify the configuration file in home/.mednafen/mednafen-09x.cfg
and change that line :
Code: [Select]
pce_fast.stretch 0
to this :
Code: [Select]
pce_fast.stretch aspect_mult2
You could try to do that too instead :
From
Code: [Select]
pce_fast.xscale 1.000000to
Code: [Select]
pce_fast.xscale 1.250000

No, Mednafen strech is incorrect. The good one is Temper. It's more obvious if you look at the text / numbers in the games, you can see your emulator is enlarging the x axis a little bit too much, just by a few pixels. Take a look at the number of the top on the two pictures i've posted. On the " 00 " (top right) you can see that on Mednafen it got a few square at the left of the " 00 " and that Temper doesnt have, even the black line on the screenshot im posting are larger in Mednafen and incorrect. If you take a closer look, you can see that very clearly on all text / numbers in the game and even on the graphics that are slightly disorted by this streching effect.

I have tried what you've said on the cfg file but didnt manage to fix it.

Here is a zoom on the problem if you dont understand what i mean :

You could try the PCE-Fast core in RetroArch. RA has aspect ratio options in Video settings so you can correct it manually. Setting it to 8:7 should be about right.
