Any Raspberry Pi guys in here?

Building a retropie project. Been playing all the NES, SNES, and sega/megadrive games flawlessly.

but recently wanted to play some PS1 on it and i am having trouble getting them to play properly.

using filezilla i put my Bios file (scph1001.bin) in the correct folder, and have plenty of roms. the .bin ones will load up ok. but anything in .7z will not even though the retropie project guys say that .7z is supported. i just cannot get them to play.

anyone know how to go in and edit this to accept that file type.

I use my Pi's as XBMC media servers, but I'll take a look at retroPi and see if I can help.

Also use XBMC as media streamer. Don't know about retroPi.

Google converting .7z files to .bin. Hope this helps

Sorry, been really busy with work. I should have a Pi 2 coming this week, and I'll try RetroPie with PSX emulator.

Just ordered an rpi2 myself.

It plays Bin files fine. Howeer when I convert from .7zip to .bin I lose a lot of quality. But the games are playable.

My next issue I'm running into is how to change discs on a multiple disc game in psx. Like final fantasy games.

I know how to do it with a keyboard. But it requires closing the emulator. Renaming the save file to the match the title of the next disc then relaunching the next disc. I'm trying to make this as stand alone as possible and would love a way around that process.
