    Hi! I need help installing the PSX and the GBA roms.
    I succeeded with NES roms.
    When I open gpSPhone, I can click on the game I put in the right directory, ending with .gba
    When I click on the game, it says that I need a GameBoy Advance and the right bios.
    I actually downloaded the GBA_BIOS.bin and put it in the location where the readme file "place_gba_bios.bin_here.readme" is. So the locations are correct.
    I tried to paste the file gba_bios.bin too, if it is case sensitive, and then by clicking the game, it crashed and I returned to my home screen.
    1) Does somebody know what happened?
    2) Can somebody give me a link for a good PSX roms website?
    3) If the PSX game has more parts, like Need for Speed Part1, NFS Part 2 etc.
    Do I have to download them all? shall I extract the .rar file?? (I get an error message when trying to extract with The Unarchiever).

    Thanks a lot!

    Not sure why GBA isnt working.

    I don't remember reading a file telling me where to place the rom. I just downloaded the rom and put it in through SSH. It worked fine for me after that.

    I haven't tried PSX yet, so I can't hep you there.

    You have to get them off your computer, then SSH them into the folder that you are prompted to put them into when you start the app
