Playstation emulator?

  jake2 21:53 01 Nov 2005

Can anybody suggest where I can download an emulator to allow me to play my ps games on my pc? I had one of these years ago (not very good if I remember) but lost it when the pc crashed (faulty memory module)I assume this is legal as I have the original games and the playstation?

I remember playing a perfect emulation of Gran Turismo 2 on an emulator way back, ePSX perhaps....

If you can still get the plugins it should work flawlessly for many games

Use ePSXe.

Good luck in finding a Bios image.

Thanks Splork. I see folowing your link for ePSX there are three downloads? Do I need to download all three or are they three versions of the same thing? (sorry for being thick!) It also mentions
"Make sure to also download and configure the plugins & playstation bios otherwise ePSXe will not work"
Is this fairly straightforward?

I know I used the first two - there are some configuration options that normally need fiddling with to get the program to work with all PSX .ISO's - you will need to have a PSX BIOS tho, as flimbo mentioned, but that's copyrighted.

I have no idea where you would go to get the BIOS file but you need it to get the emulator to work.

My initial attempts at PS emulators was a traumatic one,Colin McRae Rally at warpfactor 10,000!!!

The car was so flippin quick off the line,it had to have been crashed a dozen times before it was slow enough to control.Corners were a psychic phenomenom,so quickly did they arrive.After a week of frightening myself with my mad cars,I gave up and returned to PS games on a real PS. :-)

Thanks all. I think I'll forget about this idea for now.
