    Source? Can't really do anything with just the executable if you want this core in CI:CD.
    Besides, we already had G:GX+ ported some time ago. This still seems to be lacking the current audio fixes the rest of the cores have now (or at least are in development).

    Sorry I didn't know G:GX+ had already been ported - at least I didn't see it in the front page or part of the CI/CD. The patch is attached and would just need to be applied to an upstream checkout. However if there is a better port perhaps without the hacks then I could perhaps take a look at that instead.

    Searching the forum I had only seen attempts at porting it leading to crashes and/or black screens. My patch gets around that (albeit in a hacky way until the environ_cb is worked out). Unsure if 32x and Sega CD will work but please go ahead and try - the core options are set to auto so in theory it should work.

    G:GX+ doesn't emulate 32x. Also make sure you use appropriate .cue/.bin files.

    Sonic CD seems to work for me. Make sure you have the correct bios. Audio seems to be working well also.

    Not to derail but what are the real advantages of updating? If that's something we should be doing.

    I honestly don't see a point, I still follow psp roles when it comes to updates.

    Great! It worked for me after several attempts , fw 5.1

    ______________________________________

    For those who are having trouble trying to get this to work, this is what I did:

    On the pc

    - download the files required (files for the emulator) m4xw linked
    - look up on google for the bios and download them all
    scph5500.bin PS1 JP BIOS - Required for JP games 8dd7d5296a650fac7319bce665a6a53c
    scph5501.bin PS1 US BIOS - Required for US games 490f666e1afb15b7362b406ed1cea246
    scph5502.bin PS1 EU BIOS - Required for EU games 32736f17079d0b2b7024407c39bd3050

    -Create a .cue file for every bin game you want to play, if you don't know how to do that, this is how you do it; (I will use Resident Evil 3 as an example)

    Open notepad
    type down exacly what its below and change 'resident evil 3.bin' to whatever rom you wanna play;

    FILE “Resident Evil 3.bin” BINARY
    TRACK 01 MODE1/2352
    INDEX 01 00:00:00

    save the file as `all` and name it exactly as your bin file is but change the extension to cue, like this
    Resident Evil 3.cue

    On the Switch


    -Copy all the files for the emulator to /switch
    -Create a folder on /switch/roms called `Beetle PSX` ( you can name it whatever you want )
    -Paste your roms on this folder /switch/roms/Beetle PSX along with the .cue file, so this should be normally 2 files, .bin and another .cue (yeah I know, theres more files the emulator can load, but this is just a newbie tuto)
    -Paste the downloaded bios onto /switch/roms/Beetle PSX along with the games

    Thats it, there you have it, just load the emulator and have fun

    I'm on 5.1 and can't get it to work, I just get a grey screen. BIOs file checks out too, same exact filename and md5 matches as well. Any ideas what I could be doing wrong based on your experience?

    Well, I was having the same issue so I did exact what I explained before and it worked.
    You can download the rom over again containing the .cue file already too. Some games I tested didnt work because of the cue I created myself so, to make sure, I downloaded
    the file once again which already had the .cue file. Somehow, it worked smooth. Try it out and let me know if it worked
