Got it working already, like I said. But thanks for the configuration!
(0) close the emulator; (check if it was closed through the task manager; restart the machine otherwise)Anyone can help me with this bug?
Just found this post, and I am now questioning should I be using this RetroArch Beetle PSX over PCSXR-PGXP on the main page, which if so any proper links to downloads for it and whatever is needed, also if not is the PCSXR-PGXP you posted on page 46 linked in your comment, the version I should be using or should I stick with the files linked to on the main post which is the stuff I am currently using. Any help and better understanding would be appreciated, I want to try and get the best experience possible. I'm currently running PCSXR 1.9.93 with the PCSXR-PGXP 19.03.02, with some plugins I have found on different site posts both here and elsewhere.1. PCSXR-PGXP;

PCSXR-PGXP is the poor cousin of the RetroArch Beetle PSX. It takes up the gap of anyone who wants PGXP (texture stabilization and realignment) without the use of modern GPUs that make use of Vulkan.
If your video card is powerful enough, go RetroArch. If your video card is not powerful and you are not interested in PGXP, go ePSXe. Unfortunately there is NO good audio plugin for the PCSXR-PGXP. At the same time, ePSXe is very good using only native plugins (without any additional plugin) but in internal resolution 1x, through the GPU core.

If you'd rather try PCSXR-PGXP, the first link I provided has the latest version of the emulator packed with the most common plugins and libraries you need. There is NO BIOS, in respect of intellectual property. And again there is NO good audio plugin. None will work well for all games, however, some plugin might work well for a small list of games. You may be lucky.
if you have a relatively new computer, I would indicate you to use RetroArch Beetle PSX or Beetle PSX HW as your main ps1 gaming emulator.I be using this RetroArch Beetle PSX over PCSXR-PGXP
This seems overly complicated, and I don't want to restart from scratch on games I already have played and save files for through pcsxr-pgxp. Thanks for the knowledge though. I'm not gonna give up though, I would just like to be able to import saves from one program to another, and back.if you have a relatively new computer, I would indicate you to use RetroArch Beetle PSX or Beetle PSX HW as your main ps1 gaming emulator.
and within the list of advantages we have:
(a) there are no plugins, so, no plugin hell;
(b) enhanced ps1 audio support;
(c) more graphical enhancement alternatives;
(d) easy capture through OBS-Studio;
(e) support for RetroAchievements (online conquest system);
(f) continuous development of the emulator (mednafen fork);
(g) better support for different controls (joystick);
how to play psx (safe guide) [retroarch version]
about PCSXR-PGXP versions.
the last link I posted with versions of the emulator features the high performance Cyrez binary, but I would only suggest using it on older computers that are unable to run Beetle PSX satisfactorily.
according to rumors (I haven't tested it yet) beetle psx already has dynarec for linux (which increases the emulator performance) but the windows version should take a while to get the update.
even though RetroArch's learning curve is longer than the others, the investment of time to learn using it pays off.
in the end, it is simpler to use because there is no need to change settings once configured correctly once.
follow the guide provided and you should not have much difficulty.
Memory cards are transferable easily as most if not all PS1 emulator use the same formats.So does anyone know if save transfering is possible? If not cool, I'll do some testing on Beetle and see if it improves any over pcsx, and decide what I want to do from there. Also is there a game compatibility list, like with pcsx2?
Oh is it just a copy the memorycard file over? I noticed it was different in beetle so I didnt touch it to avoid issuesMemory cards are transferable easily as most if not all PS1 emulator use the same formats.
Save states can't be transferred.
As for comparability list dunno, but most current PS1 emulators have at least 99% accuracy with minor issues.
Well it may not be as simple as copy and paste, you may have to either change the files name or in RetroArch settings change to point to the new memory cards.Oh is it just a copy the memorycard file over? I noticed it was different in beetle so I didnt touch it to avoid issues
Ah gotcha. Also through some testing yesterday and today, I seem to get the same issues in both emulators no matter what settings I try or have found online that some people say has fixed x issue, I guess there isnt actually a difference or some games like the legend of dragoon and chrono cross just dont work properly with both of them.Well it may not be as simple as copy and paste, you may have to either change the files name or in RetroArch settings change to point to the new memory cards.
