Steps

  1. 1
    First, obtain a digital copy of a PlayStation 1 game
    .
    Then download the PSX emulator at http://www.emulator-zone.com/doc.php/psx/psx_em.html and extract it. Make sure that the BIOS file of the PlayStation 1 system is created by downloading a dumper and merger at http://shendosoft.blogspot.com/2013/07/psx-bios-dumper-26-released.html and a memory capture program from http://shendosoft.blogspot.com/2013/06/memcardrex-17-released.html. Name the file SCPH1001.bin. The emulator will not work without this BIOS file.
