ePSXe

Emulated Systems: Sony Playstation

Initial Setup

Firstly, you need to place a working PSX Bios into [root]/bios:

Secondly, you need to select Options>CPU Overclocking>x1:

You can run either ISOs or mounted images with epsxe. If using image mounting software, ensure you change the drive to the one in your drive mounting software. Daemon Tools Lite is reccomended, although to moutn to a SCSI drive (required) you now have to apply a registry file due to some changes in Windows 10. Get the reg file here

These plugin settings should work:

Emulator Overview

==== Hotkeys ====

F1 - Save a state.
F2 - Change slot (5 slots are available).
F3 - Load a state.
F4 - Toggles between limited and unlimited FPS.
F5 - Toggles analog on/off.
F6 - Select what pad will be affected by key F5.
F7 - Toggles between primary and secondary GPU plugin while playing a game.

Running Game Files

For a simple launch of .iso, .cue or .bin:

epsxe -nogui -loadbin "[file]"

NB. Paths with network drives may crash this. If booting from a LAN locaiton, use the full URI instead. E.g: “\\YourServer\ROMS\Sony PlayStation\test\Wip3out\Wipeout3.cue” instead of “X:\ROMS\Sony PlayStation\test\Wip3out\Wipeout3.cue”
