  • Very new to setting up RetroPi, however everything is running as expected apart from the Playstation Games. The games themselves are working but it is the menu that I am having issues with.

    So whats happening.

    When I go to Playstation, I see Tomb Raider (USA) (v1.1) in the list of games. When I click on this I see it takes me to another menu with Tomb Raider (USA) (v1.1) this time the game details are visible from here. Has anyone had a similar issue?

    The rom's are .bin and .cue in the same folder.

    On looking at the gamelist.xml file I see the following.

    <?xml version="1.0"?>
    <gameList>
    <game>
    <path>./Tomb Raider (USA) (v1.1)/Tomb Raider (USA) (v1.1).cue</path>
    <name>Tomb Raider</name>
    <rating>0</rating>
    <releasedate>19700101T010000</releasedate>
    <playcount>2</playcount>
    <lastplayed>20201027T065706</lastplayed>
    </game>
    </gameList>

    That's because the 1st Tomb Raider (USA) (v1.1) is the folder name (not the game), when 'clicking' on it it just takes you inside the folder, where the game actually is. Very similar to a file explorer/browser.


  • @mitu that's what I thought was happening. Is there a workaround for this? I did think about creating an actual .iso from the contents of the folder but not sure if that will work.

    @felthamn Just copy the game files directly in the psx folder, without any sub-folders.


  • @mitu never thought of that 😆 thanks


  • @mitu quick update, did what you suggested and games list is running fine. Thanks for the heads up.
