Major Noob here. I need some help.



  • I can hold my own when it comes to computers. But I am very inexperienced when it comes to RaspberryPi. I using my RBP3B+ from my 3d printer and installed retropie. I have it installed in a case. Controllers are hooked up. I have ROMs and ISO's installed. The only thing I am having a little trouble figuring out what to do is how do I change disks in a multi disk game. (mainly PSX) this is going to be a present for my mom. (She has been wanting something to play games on that is simple to use.) I will be mailing it to her for Christmas so I would love to have some instructions for her.. Any help would be appreciated.

    See the docs for how to easily switch discs in RetroArch based emulators (including lr-pcsx-rearmed, the default PS1 emulator) https://retropie.org.uk/docs/Playstation-1/#m3u-playlist-for-multi-disc-games



  • @tb-1599 Welcome to Retropie and to this forum.

    One little advice: Please be more specific about your problem in the title of your posts, it helps people who browse the new posts to determine if they can help you.

    I wish you success in your project. 🎄



  • @Clyde thanks for the advice. Is there a way I can edit it?



  • @tb-1599 There is, just click on the three vertical dots at the right of your first post and choose "edit". Thanks for following the advice! 👍



  • @tb-1599 lr-pcsx-rearmed supports PBP files which essentially smush multi-disc games into a single file.

    ETA Prime made a great video that does a great job of explaining how it all works.

    I would be more than happy to help you put together your gift. it's really thoughtful of you and cool that your mom would dig something like that.

    aguilera.john@gmail.com feel free to drop me an email. I have many resources that can help you.
