pSX – a PlayStation games emulator for Windows and Linux platforms.

pSX emulates the Sony Playstation 1, pretty much everything is emulated and most games run perfectly. It runs under Windows and Linux. One thing that should be noted is that pSX DOES NOT use plugins. The emulator is completely self contained.

The emulator has been designed to be as easy and unobtrusive to use as possible – in most cases you will not need to configure anything to use it (except maybe the controls).

The emulator requires a PS1 BIOS file which should be placed in the bios directory. By default the emulator will look for scph1001.bin – this version is highly recommend because it is the only well tested one although other bioses should work.

Once the emulator is running you can change the BIOS from the configuration menu. In the event that you only have a different bios file you can edit psx.ini to get the emulator running (run psx.exe once, you will get an error message, now look for psx.ini).

The emulator supports .cue/.bin, .ccd/.img/.sub, .iso, and .mdf/.mds CD images, the easiest way to run a game is to run the exe then select “Insert CD
image” from the File menu. It is also possible to start a game from the command line.

pSX supports compressed CD images which are called .CDZ files. They can either be created using the built in converted (File/Convert .BIN to/from .CDZ) or by using the cdztool.exe command line utility.

The last version was released in 2008.
