You can compress your bin/cue files to CHD format for retroarchs pcsxrearmed core, you'll need a computer for compression, last I checked it didn't have support for multi disc games, so they'd have to be separate CHD files(pcsxrearmed has a disc change option so no worries), most games work perfectly well as CHD, the only game that I use that MUST be a pbp is Alien Resurrection

Well, I use New 2DS, but maybe 2D games like Symphony of the Night might run well enough

New 3DS barely fullspeed = good luck on Old3DS. You can probably get it to boot but it won't run well.

You need the bios file correctly named and put in your system folder, pcsx-rearmed will just crash immediately otherwise.

You are better off getting any cheat Android phone or another means of emulating PS1 games. The old3DS simply isn't strong enough to properly emulate PS1 games and it seems most of the development isn't focused on making PS1 emulation a thing on old3DS hardware.

Last I checked, SOTN actually runs on a 3D engine, as the save rooms indicate. This is probs why it performs poorly on o3DS.

(It's also the reason the Saturn port played like shit.)

Why do people insist on emulating consoles that run terribly on O3DS? I mean i have one and i understand trying to squeeze the most out of the console but if something is not possible, or runs badly, i just move on.
Don't you have a computer or a good tablet or something to emulate PSX properly? If it's for the "on the go" capabilities there's always smartphones, tablets, other consoles like PSP and vita, or even these cheaper raspie based emulation handhelds. And if money's the issue i understand, i've argued against the "just buy a N3DS" more than once here. But im curious.

I don't know if it's the same case as him.

But in my case, I can't buy a New 3DS or Nintendo Switch, it's a little expensive for me at the moment (consoles in Brazil are quite expensive), 3DS is practically my main gaming platform at the moment, so I always try to play as much as I can in it.

I don't like to play on smartphones, I really hate touch controls, it's not the same feeling as buttons, In summary, if I can play on my 3DS, even if it doesn't run perfectly, I would prefer to play on it than on the Smartphone, especially if I don't have the option to buy another console (which is the case).

I mean, if its what ya got, then fine. Its just the constant bitching from those that want better performance when they know they got a shitty console. They should be happy with what they got when they cannot get the better option.

i understand bro im from Argentina. And don't like gaming on smartphones either, it's not comfortable and also you run out of battery to use it for what it's intended..
But you guys gotta accept O3DS just isn't powerful enough to run certain things. There's still a shitload of games you CAN run on it, considering you have the complete library of games of NES, SNES, Sega Genesis, Gameboy, GBcolor, GBadvance, Scumm, NDS, 3DS, plus a bunch of ports of Doom and other old games like that.

    And yeah I was reading about that today. Supposedly the 360 plays OG Xbox games pretty well

    And yeahp -_- I have been messing with AetherSX and it's gotten some good ground on PS2 emulation :) I can play Roadkill with it now

    That's true, but the PS3 is pretty dope too. It'd be nice to see someone build an improved emulator for PSP and PS1/2 for the Slim models

    360 can run og Xbox but wouldn't work with my xkeys guess it has extra security where it looks for separate folder codes from the DVD drive or something

    Yeah, you're supposed to flash the drive itself apparently

    Xkeys just tricks it easier with 360isos

    I don't keep my browser history otherwise I'd probably drop you a link to what I was reading. You're supposed to patch the OG Xbox games to work with a modded 360

    Yeah but my DVD drive is just flashed not jagged xkeys just allows you to run the iso externally from a USB source

    Yeah :/ I bet there's just a lot of people holding onto that stuff tight- or -... maybe a lot of it is tossed too
