PSX: double entries because of .bin/.cue files

  • Hello there forum,

    the retropie wiki page for the playstation 1 system claims that psx roms in the .bin format need the corresponding .cue file also.
    i thought that therefor the .bin files would be hidden in the emulationstation menu. but instead i now have double entries for every game (one for the .bin file, one for the .cue file).
    is there a nice easy way to fix this so emulationstation displays a clean list?

    thank you all for your time


  • @tcmt
    By default RetroPie should only show the .cue files unless you're using a really old version of RetroPie?

    Anyways, have a look in /etc/emulationstation/es_systems.cfg or /opt/retropie/configs/all/emulationstation/es_systems.cfg and find the "psx" section


        <extension>.cue .cbn .img .iso .m3u .mdf .pbp .toc .z .znx .CUE .CBN .IMG .ISO .M3U .MDF .PBP .TOC .Z .ZNX</extension>
        <command>/opt/retropie/supplementary/runcommand/ 0 _SYS_ psx %ROM%</command>

    Then between <extension> and </extension> if you see anything like .bin and .BIN than remove those!

  • thank you. that file did the trick.

    i wasn't using an old version of retropie though. in fact it was a fresh install of 4.1. i even updated all installed packages via the retropie setup.

    maybe they changed it back?

    anyway thanks again!
