The PlayStation Audio Thread

I've always been fascinated with the sound and music from classic game systems. Over a year ago I discovered that hardware inside a game console can greatly alter how the final audio output will sound. This can be due to the frequency, filtering, amplification, or a whole host of things. The Sony Pl...

Re: New Member: Logan Jones

I'm glad I could make a contribution, guys! Alright, then. I flashed the nocash BIOS to my PS1 and now I can play burned CD-Rs! I can also play VCDs, (I got one from a thrift store but it seems defective. Oh well.) With this BIOS, I'll be able to do all kinds of stuff! Thank you so much guys for hel...

Re: New Member: Logan Jones

Behold: my first contribution to this site! I actually had to go out and buy a DB25 cable at a thrift store. Once I hooked it up to my computer I followed your steps, and I successfully dumped the ROM! I dumped the ROM twice just to be safe, so the second ROM in the folder is a copy. You guys feel f...

Re: New Member: Logan Jones

Alright! Thanks for the reply, Square. I'll follow your advice and try to dump my cart for you guys using what you suggested. Do you know where I can find cheap DB25 M/F cable? I was thinking about ordering one through Wal-Mart. EDIT: Just Downloaded and ran X-Killer as administrator. It boots up fi...

Re: New Member: Logan Jones

Thanks for the offer, Xrider, I appreciate it... but I can't quite afford such a thing right now. I mean, I'm from NTSC territory. I take it the STU allows for region-switching maybe? I bought my 5501 for it's superior DAC, and since the 5502 uses the same one (AFAIK) your offer is rather enticing. ...

Re: New Member: Logan Jones

Your advice worked, Squaresoft74! I was successfully able to change the video mode from PAL to NTSC! https://i.imgur.com/SVIKCuy.jpg Here's the version information: https://i.imgur.com/er29ifp.jpg Aw shucks. Its version 4.50 Pro. I know that version of the XFX has not had a good dump, yet. With thes...

Re: New Member: Logan Jones

I got my Xploder FX today! Unfortunately, I've a major problem! I plug my XFX into my PS1's parallel port, turn it and the system on, and I see this onscreen: https://i.imgur.com/MiPz8Wn.jpg To describe it to you, the image onscreen is rapidly jumping in a downward fashion, as if it is out of sync. ...

Re: New Member: Logan Jones

I'd like to see the archives if there is a way. If my cart can easily be dumped I'd like to give it a try. I guess this means if I have a cart that has not been dumped (correctly) yet I should at least give it a try and wait on flashing No$ to it. I think I can still play burned CD-R games with the ...

Re: New Member: Logan Jones

Hold on a sec. How do I connect my PS1 to my PC's serial port? Is there like a common and cheap adapter I can buy?

Re: New Member: Logan Jones

Thanks, Squaresoft74. I've Windows 7 desktop with a serial port. Dumping the cart, (if need be) it should work fine, right? Furthermore, is there a list of archived Xploder ROMS to see if I don't have to dump my current ROM if there is already an exact dump out there? Or is dumping my own ROM for my...

Re: New Member: Logan Jones

Wow! Thanks for the advice! I must have been confused at the the original thread. Once I get my XFX I'll tell you how it goes. Thank you very much.

(I tried to ask questions with other members on the irc chat, but my situation is rather specific.) My first question is: 1) As an alternat...
