PSX BIOS NOT WORKING
"Coppied them in the BIOS Folder and also tried in the roms folder"
I don't find this text in your first post, that's why I mentioned about it.
Can you show a screenshot of your BIOS folder ? I suppose that 'through internet' means using File Shares, so the folder should be visible from your PC.
The emulator should also produce a log file where any error messages are shown - it's in
/dev/shm/runcommand.log, but you'll need to use WinSCP to get it. Try to get this log file and post it here in the forums, surrounded by code tags (

The extension is wrong, because Linux is case sensitive, so it should be

Make sure you search for the file immediately after starting the emulator and don't reboot the system - the file is erased when you reboot.

I had same issue. I had to put the file in the BIOS folder and inside the ~/roms/psx folder too
Tried that too but didnt work i guess ill try it again with diffrent some other bios us-eu
If you're using
pcsx_rearmedas emulator, then the only BIOS is recognises is the
SCHP1001.BINone; the Libretro core (
lr-pcsx-rearmed) can use other BIOS files and it doesn't care about upper/lower case. However, the standalone emulator (
pcsx_rearmed) is the one recommended for a Pi0/1, since the Libretro core is too slow for those models.
So which one are you using ? How are you searching for the log file ?
using the SCHP1001.BIN i have it in the BIOS folder but it doesen't get recognized when im opening the games it tells me No bios for playstation and if i hold a button a go to the menu theres no other to select and there is the default one lr-pcsx-rearmed
Without a log file (
/dev/shm/runcommand.log) it's hard to say why it's not working - having the right BIOS file in the BIOS folder it's enough.
Maybe you've changed the settings in RetroArch and it doesn't know where to find the BIOS ?
Can you give me a simple step by step on how to check that on the retro arch.
Tbh i touched the retroarch but i dont remember with having to do with bios.
Thanks a lot for your help!
RetroArch searches the BIOS in the System directory. Check where this directory is set by looking into the Settings -> Directory menu. First entry should be the System/BIOS - check what value it's set there.
The value is correct at home/pi/retropie/bios i remember it correct
nothing wrong here
Hmmm im getting to a point that i think Reinstalling retropie will maybe help
what do you think about reinstalling ?
