Retro Pie 4.2 PSX "Bios not found"

@edmaul69 yeah. The Japanese version of the game didn't work either.
There's not much on the "official" compatibility list:
There's a list of issues on the original emulator:
And some on the libretro repository, which is the one we use:
Maybe you can get some pointers in those lists as to what to experiment?
Hope it helps!

@pjft Fu*k compatibility lists... I can't understand why anyone would try and maintain something like that. Try it, does it work?

Hi, I had the "BIOS not found" problem, too.
I stumbled on this and other threads with suggestions, but nothing worked.
I used a BIOS file, which worked at other emulators before. It was the SCPH1001.BIN BIOS. I checked, that it was correct named, checked the md5 checksum, checked file/folder permisions... everything was correct.
My solution was:
Go to Retroarch menu (I did it ingame)
Go to Settings->Directory->System/BIOS
Select Folder /home/pi/Retropie/BIOS/<Use this directory> ... (or whatever folder you use)
Still in the Retroarch menu navigate to MainMenu->Configurations and select "Save Current Configuration"
Now the BIOS is found and for example GTA2 European Edition works, it didn't before.
Hope that helps :)

@milok No need to do that since the default is already at /home/pi/Retropie/BIOS/.
I guess it's good info for people that mess around with the settings or use modified retropie builds.

Yes, maybe I messed the settings up somehow and didn't notice it. Maybe not...
It could have been by copying some folders from an older Retropie system to my current system. At least thats the only thing, I remember, that could have caused that for me... I just didn't expect that this could have been my problem.

Just for information, if the .cue file is missing for a game, the game won't show up in retropie.
To fix that, you can create a .cue file by copying an existing one and editing it with notepad (and renaming it ofc).
Hope that might help anyone.

@skull-knight I had the same "Bios not found" problem, and fixed it by copying the SCPH1001.BIN file into /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/psx (i.e. the same directory where the ROMs are stored).

@milok Useful for me, my gf deleted the retroarch.cfg and the one it autogenerates apparently is completely different from the default one? A lot of stuff is changed, including the entire psx interface for retroarch, and bios location.
