I've dumped the game with alcohol and it came out as .mdf / mds files. I've read that I can simply rename to .bin and it should be Okay, but I've tried pcsx-rearmed retroarch3DS and neither works (yes I have the BIOS files in the correct location too)
Both emulators I've installed via the retroarch downloads website so the folders are setup in the correct locations and I'm just loading it up and choosing the .bin file (approx 660mb) and both emulators just worked OK.

All I can assume is that renaming the file to bin wasn't enough and I should re-dump the game, what's best to use to get a regular .bin & .cue

Use a converter like UltraISO to convert it to bin/cue

It crashes using WiiSX b1, and I don't have much hope for it on beta2 either tbh...... you're hard pushed getting the game to run well (if at all) on the PC emulators! (I've only got it working on epsxe, but there's plenty issues there - pSX just crashes!)
AND
Code:
Dang, beaten to it, lol....
Aye like blackshadow says, game won't even boot, usb2 mod or not (as I expected) - I can see your logic in thinking the earlier releases will more likely work, unfortunately it doesn't work like that, particularly in the case of emulation on a machine such as the PS1..... shame, as my mum loves Destruction Derby and only has a Wii & a grotty old PC that near-blows up when it tries to run ePSXe hehe...

Anyway, the problem clearly isn't due to your dumping method apoptygma...

Rich (BB code):
I think PSX-R is actually picking up the BIN file OK, it shows the SCES-##### code, game title then the next line

EXECUTE

is the last thing printing in the post-game on-screen text. It simply stops at this point, the text remains on screen and the wiimote falls out of sync

Whoa there, that was from 10 years ago and for the Wii via WiiSX!
PowerISO is my preferred program of choice for burning to bin, you could try that. Alternatively you could simply go the legally grey area and download a copy, I personally don't see an issue there (although let's not go into that on this topic haha) assuming you have the game already on CD...Romance is a nice feeling huh..
RA-pcsxrearmed does run the game really well on other devices, so once you've burned/obtained the bin/cue (run via the cue file - avoid trying the aforementioned pbp, bin/cue is always better if you have the space) then you might have luck on 3DS, but I've never tried it myself.

Now fully works on the Latest RetroArch PCSX-ReARMed core builds for the 3DS version now lets see trying out on N2DSXL Pikachu Europe Edition Luma3DS??

I think (and this might sound harsh ...sorry!) you may need to find a forum that speaks in your native language, that'll help you better than we can, coz frankly I'm not quite sure what you're even asking for at this point....:lol:

Are you on the wrong forum? This is for 3DS. Not Wii. Tony hawk games run fine on New 3DS. So does CTR.
