    Hi.

    While not strictly android game related, I had a few questions about compressing psx isos to run with psx4droid:

    1. How badly is performance affected when running a compressed rom compared to an uncompressed one?

    2. Which compression format(s) does the emulator support? The info i've found suggests that psp eboot files are the only compressed file format it understands?

    3. How do I go about compressing various rom file formats?


    Thanks for any advice! :p

    I believe this eboot IS the only compressed format and i find no difference in performance

    you can use IceTea to compress the iso or bin files to eboot files. i hear this also make some games work a little better. sometimes it will compress it down to half size :D

    I downloaded all three parts of FF7 and there is a .cue and .img file, can I just use the .img file to play the game or should I convert it to eboot?

    I've been having no luck with PyPOPS as well! not very consistent.
