PSX Iso Help
Let me state first this isn't a question on where to get Isos.

I recently downloaded the epsxe emu and downloaded FFVII and got a zip file unziped it and got:

SCUS-94163 (winzip file)

what do I do with these files.

I don't have a whole lot of experience dealing with PSX emulation but you might want to try the emulator named pSX. From what I recall, it's much more user friendly compared to ePSXe.

As for the files, if what you have is a complete disc image then you should be able to load any of the files and it will work.

Are you sure that you have a complete disc image, though? None of those extensions usually indicates a complete disc image. You should have a .bin or . img or some such. It looks like all you have is the peripheral files. What is the total file size of all of the files unzipped?

SCUS-94163 (winzip file) - 729,918KB
SCUS-94163.cue - 1KB
SCUS-94163.ccd - 1KB
SCUS-94163.sub - 29,793KB

Just forget it.. I barely got my N64 emu working on this bucket of a PC and it still has graphic, texture & frame rate issues so a PSX one is out of the question..thanks anyway...

From my experiences, PSX emulation tends to run smoother on older PCs than N64 emulation.

Are you sure you extracted all of the files from the ZIP? If the main zip is 700MB, you should have a lot more than 30MB worth of files in it. It looks to me like you failed to extract the primary disc image, which would explain why you can't get it to work.

Really, well thats good I was about to give up on PSX emulation

I didn't save the zip I downloaded. So downloaded another from a different site opened it in Winzip and this is how it looks

Final Fantasy VII (USA) (Disc1).cue - 98KB
Final Fantasy VII (USA) (Disc1).7z - 396MB

If you're not familiar with 7z, it's a newer compression scheme that compresses data considerably better than .zip or .rar. You'll have to unzip the .7z file to get to the data. (Unless maybe the emulator already has .7z support, which is possible.)

You can decompress 7zip with WinRAR or with the free 7zip utility from http://www.7-zip.org/.

Thatīs right - obtain 7-zip and extract the imagefile, assuming itīs a *.bin file. Also, make sure that the *.cue file has the right path and name of the *.bin file included (just open the *.cue file with notepad and take a look - it should correspondent with your extracted *.bin file).
I recommend using ePSXe, since Final Fantasy needs special Hacks to run properly. ePSXe has that, youīll find it in itīs configuration tool.
So, setup ePSXe like you want (there are many guides around) and give it a go.

I've ran FF7 in pSX just fine, as far as I know. (I've never played it on a console, so it's possible that I wouldn't notice differences, but there was certainly nothing glaringly obvious.)

Maybe ePSXe is different than pSX, but the .cue file is irrelevant. You can open the .bin directly.

jd_9393 12-12-2010 11:27 PM

I finally got it..I downloaded 7-Zip extracted it was a data.bin.ecm so I used PakkISO to unecm it and it worked. I when back to ePSXe because a few errors popped up when I ran pSX. PSX emulation is smoother than N64 emulation. Thanks for the help...
