PCSX-ReARMed is a PlayStation 1 Emulator. A better alternative to PSX4Pandora.
In development with a beta version available.
A compatibility list is maintained as Google spreadsheet doc: PSX compatibility list
PCSX-ReARMed supports loading BIOSes. They should be copied to [sd card]/pandora/appdata/pcsx_rearmed/bios/ ..and then selected in options->bios/plugins menu. Loading a BIOS can potentially fix tons of bugs. It is highly recommended to activate it.
ROM files (Disc images) come in a range of formats, most commonly .iso, .img, .bin/.cue or .mdf/.mds. This emulator cannot handle compressed ROM files.
While it does not matter where the ROM files are placed, it is often easiest to put them somewhere that makes sense in relation to the PND for easy browsing. A good place to put them would be either in a clearly-named folder in the root of the SD card (e.g. /PS1) or in the same folder as the emulator PND (e.g. /pandora/menu/PS1). It does not matter how many ROM files are in the folder, or what directory structure is used.
[Overclocking] is often necessary to achieve acceptable emulation. See the Compatibility List for each game's tested speed.
Creating images of Games
A short how-to for doing this on Linux is available: Creating images of PSX games using Linux. On Windows you can probably rely on the common tools for creating disc images, like for example Alcohol or the likes. There were some reports in the forums that using Nero for creating images does not work.
