Since getting an Nvidia Shield TV + Retrocore, I had a renewed interest in emulation in general (after being away from it for years). It might be old news by now but it was pretty amazing to see a tiny quiet Android box running PS1 emulators on a TV, playing games at full speed with the usual emu enhancements (save states, etc).
Right now I'm just trying to figure out how to sort out my old redump PS1 ISO folder. Most of the games are in game.bin.ecm format and compressed with 7zip. The ones with multi-tracks are in .ape format. In terms of storage, there's no problem here.
But there are two main issues:
1) clrmamepro + the redump PS1 dat demands that all files be in .bin format (including the audio .wavs) so if I want to keep track of what I do and don't have, I'll need to convert them. I don't mind doing so, but I just want to make sure this is the current preferred format before I begin.
2) Some or most PS1 emulators can decompress and run standard single-track isos (not sure about multi-track ones) before running them (very convenient). However, this is not possible with the game.bin.ecm + .ape format.
Basically I just want an organised PS1 iso set which can be decompressed on-the-fly (instead of manually decompressed beforehand) and played with emulators on the Nvidia Shield TV.
Please let me know your thoughts and ideas.
