I heard someone saying the same, so I would like to try this version.
It's a shame, the only way to play this game is to use save states.
At least now I know it's possible to finish the game! :P
@blujumanji when I recently loaded a new retropie image I was really confused because I had the same bios files on my older image and suddenly with the new image the PSX ROMS wouldn’t load. Oddly once I updated the lr-pscx-rearmed emulator from binary it suddenly worked with no other changes. I had thought that wouldn’t be necessary to update because I had just downloaded the “brand new” retropie 4.4 image and the PSX emulator is part of the image so I figured it would be “up to date.” But apparently that is not the case. So maybe try putting both bios folders in again and updating the emulator (go to retropie setup, manage packages, I think lr- psx rearmed is under either main or optional, and then update, update from binary) and see if that works.
So why my pc can run more powerfull systems so well, but the psx emulation go so bad?
Because it is not about how powerful the original system is, it is about how the emulator was designed (see http://emulation.gametechwiki.com/index.php/High/Low_level_emulation), beetle-psx is more on the LLE side, i would recommend pcsx-rearmed instead if your computer is not fast enough.
Emulators generally don't care about the cpu generation, the number of cores, ..., they only care about cpu frequency : if your cpu is at 2.4Ghz, for beetle-psx your computer is as good as a 2.4Ghz single core pentium from 15 years ago, which is kinda crappy to run this emulator.
@steptoe Eh..even the most minimal of compression, eboot conversion is still my preferred way. Especially to convert multi-disc games to a single eboot file. You still need a cue file for .img.
It also doesn't hurt that just about every US release is already converted and it's more convenient to download those instead.
I pretty much do the eboot way as well cause some of my games i have copied over to ISO's would total up to around 1.4GB which after converting them to eboot files it would usually drop down to a little over 900mb instead which i am able to add more games onto my Pi because of that.
@pumpkinrat Not sure about settings in the standalone PCSX, but couldn't you change the output res of that pluggin to 1024x768 (seeing as you had it set to 1360x768 anyways) or a res that has something resembling a 4:3 ratio? I set most of my cores to run at 640x480, as that's technically higher than the original res in most cases anyways. Other benefit to the lower res means less stress on the pi, meaning potentially less input lag.
