I have downloaded PCSX from The Ubuntu Software Center and the BIOS file from http://www.emuparadise.me/biosfiles/bios.html (PSX BIOS Pack (15 Images)). When I try to run an .iso file or from the CD-drive (yes, the games are original), the screen turns black and then it crashes after 5 seconds or so. Any ideas?

  • Please edit '~/.pcsx/pcsx.cfg' like this.

    ==> change 'Cpu = 0' to 'Cpu = 1'

(*) I refer to this HP.


  • it still doesn't run for me after following this – Lost Crotchet May 5 at 9:14
  • I'm using pcsxr, but I had the same problem and this fixed it. Why would somebody ship software in a broken state like this? It's such a small fix. – DeepDeadpool Jun 16 at 18:55
