    Years ago I tried to use the emulator WiiSX to run PS1 games with little luck.
    Since then, have there been any improvements?
    What's the best currently used PS1 emulator [and provide a channel forwarder if you can] and where can I find a guide to help me get setup?

    No, he's being serious, there have been a ton of improvements since beta 1 to beta 2. Unfortunately, no further betas have been released. However, compatability is high, I use WiiSX to play all sorts of PS1 games at or at near full speeds. Its very usable. Still there are games that just don't work or freeze, its not perfect, but its a huge improvement over what I assume you used last.

    Does it require the bios bin file or does it not need anything except the for the game cue and bin?

    You still need the scph1001.bin and any ISO, BIN game

    Okay, that's self explanatory. But does it need the cue file to launch the game? or bin of the game only?

    Some games don't work with BIOS, Raystorm is one of those games. Also apparently reading speeds affect performance greatly. I just wish the compatibility lists were more accurate, some of the things written there are either really vague or outright wrong.

    I see that the forwarder is not compatible with the original WiiSX and only the AHBPROT injected dol file

    There's a problem with the settings not being saved either, even when you do click "save to cfg".

    Since I don't have Wii anymore, I can't say I remember if 2.1 was the one I tried..whichever one it was, was the one I used earlier this year, and I'm thinking its 2.1. The author claimed to release a newer version back in april/may however he fell short on his promise.

    Yeah, that's what it was. Controller settings, which was a real pain.

    Finally got to trying it out.
    Anyone know why the controller settings don't save? There's a big "Save to CFG" switch, but that doesn't seem to really save anything.

    How would I go about setting up my USB drive for WiiSX? I'm currently on NTFS.
