You mean  SCPH-7502 Bios? And where do i have to put it?

Great, but where is the psx4all binary?

Is there any way to bring up the menu while playing a game? Mostly for save states and things like that  ;)

Post by: toto on June 30, 2014, 08:29:20 pm
Can  someone explains the BIOS? Wich one needed, where tout put them? I ve been testing FF7, works great until the first fight.

Post by: joebro88 on June 30, 2014, 08:38:04 pm
It works like that until you load a game with bios-you can find them somewhere across the internet. They're named things like (for example) scph7502.bin or scph1001.bin  Once you have them, put them with your games in /usr/local/home/.psx4all. The bios allow your games to work correctly...most of the time  :D

I have my games on a sd card. Do I still to put it in  .psx4all? Anyone tried FF7 ?
Title: Re: [HOW-TO] Use the psx4all emulator
Post by: joebro88 on June 30, 2014, 09:17:59 pm
I've been playing FF7 for a while now, and even though it's a little fast I think it's enjoyable. You don't have to have your games in .psx4all, but you need to put the bios files in the same folder that your games are in. I had my games on the SD to begin with too, so it's not a problem. Also, changing the bios in the psx4all options may make it work better-I hope I'm helping

Thanks for jour help! Wich BIOS are you using for FF7?
Title: Re: [HOW-TO] Use the psx4all emulator

I'm using scph7501, so North American. And you're welcome  ;D
Title: Re: [HOW-TO] Use the psx4all emulator
Post by: slapstick on June 30, 2014, 11:03:04 pm
Which version of psx4all are you using? Do you have a link to it? It would probably be good information to add to the video description.

you can find psx4all here:

Thanks for your help guys! I managed to play a little of FF7. Another quick question. How do you save/load states? What about the shortcuts and how to load another disk in a game (FF7 has 3)?
Title: Re: [HOW-TO] Use the psx4all emulator
Post by: joebro88 on July 01, 2014, 02:49:08 pm
I found out that bringing up the menu is (select + x). From there, you can save and load states in the files options. There isn't music when you load a state though... ??? And maybe when it tells you switch discs, you can load disc 2 or 3 from the menu  ;)
Title: Re: [HOW-TO] Use the psx4all emulator
Post by: toto on July 01, 2014, 09:26:02 pm
I am so glad I managed to play with FF7 this morning but I tried to play this evening again and the emulator wouldn't find the BIOS. I checked and the BIOS had disappeard! Is that possible. I can't find the website where I downloaded the scph7501.bin, can I use another BIOS instead? 

Or maybe someone can send me the schp7501.bin by MP?
Title: Re: [HOW-TO] Use the psx4all emulator
Post by: joebro88 on July 01, 2014, 09:46:52 pm
That's strange actually. I'm guessing you don't have scph7502.bin or scph7503.bin? Both of those work the same, but I don't think the other bios are compatible with FF7. You can try  :D (Just to add, I'm a few hours in to the game and it still plays fine)
Title: Re: [HOW-TO] Use the psx4all emulator
Post by: toto on July 01, 2014, 09:55:22 pm
Tried scph7501.bin, but the "can't find BIOS" message pops up. Are you using scph7501?
Title: Re: [HOW-TO] Use the psx4all emulator
Post by: joebro88 on July 01, 2014, 10:05:28 pm
Yes, I've been using that the whole time. Did you try moving the bios to .psx4all?
Title: Re: [HOW-TO] Use the psx4all emulator
Post by: toto on July 01, 2014, 10:09:58 pm
That's it! I had to put it in .psx4all ! Thanks mate! Let's play some FF7!

I've been getting some really crappy sound on the FF Origins Chrono Trigger.  I have been loading up the 1001 BIOS, would using a different one help?
Title: Re: [HOW-TO] Use the psx4all emulator
Post by: Chiba3010 on July 04, 2014, 08:44:54 pm
I've got a number of titles running very nicely on this emu but have had no luck loading save states that are playable. Most of them load to their proper place in the game but are frozen and completely non-interactive. It's kind of a deal breaker for me, coupled with all the other cumbersome design flaws in this "rough draft" emulator. With some polish and refinement, it could be great. As it is, it's at least a testament to how well the Zero can handle PS1 games. It's simultaneously impressive and frustrating.

Hey everyone. Every time I try to load a game, say FF7 d1 (with bios image scph1001.bin selected in the menu) and I load the game WITH bios... it keeps telling me that "BIOS NOT FOUND". The game continues to run but crashes at the beginning of the first enemy encounter.

I have the bios located exactly where you mention it to be...

Can someone kindly provide a step-by-step of where the BIOS and games need to be??

Thanks.

Under FileZilla, the .opk of psx4all is located in the apps section, so that's correct.

For the games and BIOS, I have it located as /media/data/local/home/psx4all

UPDATE: I got it! It seems I had to use DinguxCMD app and transfer the files from one location to another. Oh, by the way, Xenogears D1 does NOT seem to boot.

Ok, thanks for the info ;).

Maybe someone working on other PSX emulator? :-[ Or we can say goodbye to a good PSX emulation in our Zeros ??? ?

PSX emulation is perfectly doable. It will totally depend on if someone capable will have the time and motivation to work on it.

Post by: xdplus fanatic-oopsy on August 17, 2014, 04:54:14 pm
Correct. I have the psx4all.opk and can tell from this beta port that it runs pretty smooth how it currently is. Just a matter of time till its worked on, etc.

Is the flickering on the emulator's menu screen and the flickering on the FPS bar at the top of the emulator normal? I know it's very... incomplete all-around, but I just want to make sure I'm not doing something wrong here.
Title: Re: [HOW-TO] Use the psx4all emulator
Post by: xdplus fanatic-oopsy on August 19, 2014, 05:30:00 pm
My mistake everyone... Xenogears and Einhander boot fine... I had a bad bios file. I re-transferred to my Zero and all games work more or less fine now. They all boot.

I am using scph1001.bin BIOS in case anyone was wondering.
Title: Re: [HOW-TO] Use the psx4all emulator
Post by: tintin_uk on August 21, 2014, 09:54:10 am
My favourite game is WipEout XL. Has anyone been able to run this successfully?

The rip I have is in the format of 12x separate .bin files (named tracks 1 - 12) and 1x .cue file. When I try and load track 1 in the app I get the Sony splash screen but it goes no further.

Can anyone help?

Cheers,

TT.

*Update: Part of the problem seemed to be with the 1001 BIOS file. Changing that to 7502, and downloading the game in an .img file format have together got it working - although I have no in-game music, sadly. =(

Has anyone tweaked the graphics settings to get the most out of the game? Also, any way to get the in-game music? I'd be interested to hear.

has anyone been able to get FF8, D1 booted up on ANY usa BIOS images?

I get to the menu screen then it goes black permanently...


thanks.

When I run with the bios the roms load to the PS symbol and then locks up, without the bios they run  poorly or not at all.  Has anyone else had these issues?
Title: Re: [HOW-TO] Use the psx4all emulator
Post by: xdplus fanatic-oopsy on August 27, 2014, 08:09:17 pm
yes, I have. I am able to boot a few games, such as ALUNDRA, FF7, XENOGEARS and CASTLEVANIA: SOTN. It really depends on the BIOS used. It is a very glitchy emulator, psx4all. I would recommend loading either scph1001.bin or scph7001.bin for those few games I just mentioned.

Some games, like FF8, either the USA or European rom, won't boot at all no matter which BIOS I was using. We will have to wait till this emulator gets optimized in the future. In the meantime, don't get discouraged if you can't load a certain game. It's perfectly normal right now.

Has anyone been able to get Final Fantasy 8 booted properly? If so, could you indicate the BIOS image you are using?? Thanks.

Wow, nice ! Wish that Res Evil 3 also works like this....

Btw, exchanging some info:

- MIB is similar and it's working nice as well
- Just finished Breath of Fire 3 last week - What f*king good rpg... Highly recommended ; No glitches, just little slow down on some towns; Avoid reading walkthroughs to not fu*k the surprises ...
- Diablo is working BUT , without select button enabled on the emulator, it's impossible to play because you have no access to inventory
- Cda tracks dont work with this emu version
- Time Commando, Need for Speed games, Road Rash are not working =/
