@lochnagar I know the music on Tomba II is glitchy and plays the wrong track on the default (and only emulator if on a pi) psx emulator. It’s old and buggy and hasn’t really been updated with any significance in a long time. But it runs very smoothly on low end hardware and runs most games just fine. There is no fix unless someone updates the emulator to fix said bugs.
Once you've set the option in RetroArch's menu (the Options submenu), it should be saved automatically and apply to all games.
If it's not, then you either have overrides (core options) set for that game or there's an issue with the core options file (/opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch-core-options.cfg is not writeable by your user ?).
@mitu Alright thank you so much, I've discovered that the reason that my control only worked on Spider-Man was because that game supported Dualshock and not all ps1 games support Dualshock. What happened is when I went into the options menu, I had the pad type originally on standard and moved it to Dualshock, not all ps1 games are compatible with Dualshock and are only playable through Standard pad type. Thanks for the article @mitu I really appreciate it homie ❤.
My read is that 'all games from MGS till the end' are not working, hence it's not just a single game.
Otherwise, yes, it looks like a bad disc dump or corrupted file. Try with simple .cue/.bin images that you can validate against redump.org's database.
I've dug all I can in the archives but this one has me stumped.
It's actually part of the PS1 emulator page - look here. You may have set the controller to analog for one game and this setting is automatically saved, applying to all games (as it's about the emulator/core options).
@BJRetro I think I did the lr. But when I went to update, I could not find the binary option. Only from source. I'm also not sure what the difference is :s
Thanks for the tip, this might be it. Will look up how to do it.
@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.
