    Just joined hoping these forums are still alive.

    Is this not compatible with iPhone 4 yet?, because I recently got psx4all on it and it's not working. I download Spyro 1 as a test since it supposedly works almost perfectly, but when I try to start it up, I choose orientation and sound, and all I ever get is a black screen with the controls. I've tried waiting for well over an hour like this to no avail.

    My permissions is set to 755 for everything I could find that's related
    Rom is in .iso format
    I got scph1001.bin in all lowercase in the PSX folder in ROMs
    I've tried restarting and reinstalling psx4all several times

    The rom shows up on the list, so I suspect that it's not the problem, but it just doesn't startup in the emulator no matter what I do. I'll be trying other games soon. If it is compatible, then I would appreciate it if someone could help.

    Okay, I think I figured it out. If the file is in img format, it seems to work. I got Spyro 2 in an img format and it started playing almost instantly at ~45 fps. Spyro 1 doesn't work right now, but it's still in an iso format, I'll get back again when I convert it, and show my results. *crosses fingers*

    You can talk about ROMs all day long. You just can't talk about where to get them.

    Convert it, that should work!

    slight problem...

    Since .img files are among the most worthless types of files, I can't find anything that would translate it into an img file. Spyro 2 just happened to come that way. I can get stuff to an iso easily enough now, so if anyone knows how to get to an img file from there, that would be appreciated.

    Like I said, its a bit of a longshot.

    Is downloading another rom an option? Especially if its the right filetype
