Hi, I have configured everything, and everything works correctly.

Most of the games on the various systems start, but I believe there is a problem with the PlayStation1.

When I select a game, the loading screen starts but no emulator appears, after a few seconds it returns to the games list.

Is there a log file to understand what's going on?

Hello, what emulator did you use ? Are you sure you have the proper bios for PlayStation ? Also, please check the format of the games you try to launch. Are they .bin/.cue, .chd, .zip, .exe or anything else ? Try also different video driver from the menu. By the way, please choose an avatar, thank you.

Entering the specific section for the Playstation system in Retrobat, the available emulators are:
- Libretro / Mednafen Psx Hw
- Libretro / PcsxRearmed
- Duckstation

I left the selection on Auto.

Furthermore, Retrobat does not report missing bios for any system.

Most of the ps1 roms are in .7z format. others in .srm format.

Ok so what files did you have in the 7z ? I recommend to extract files. Personnally I run PS1 games with chd or bin/cue format exclusively. Never directly from zip or 7z. Srm is not a game format but it's saves files.

Inside .7z I see .bin and .cue files.

My roms are in an external hard drive, shared sometimes with an emulation station android box.

This android box hasn't problems to unzip on the fly .7z ps1 roms.

Retrobat can do the same with some configurations?

First please try by unzipping your games and tell us if it works or not.

Unzipped and works Very Happy

But if possible I would prefer the 7z format.

It is possible to use the PBP format, used by PSP and emulators, it is a format already compressed, to save disk space. take a look at telegram and some sites you will find Smile

OBS: Oh, you can also convert your bin/cue files to PBP format using a tool called PSX2PSP.
