Although a little bit outdated, pSX Emulator is a free application to run PlayStation 1 (PS1) games.
The application is pretty basic but does allow you to play most available PS1 ROM files available, although a BIOS ROM file is required in order to get this application running. By default, pSX Emulator will look for a file called biosSCPH1001.BIN which might be available on the web.
After the proper ROM file has been obtained, the application can load PlayStation CDs from your optical drive. Loaded games may be played and the application also supports memory cards, CD images and state saves.
You can also use pSX Emulator to play ROM hacks if they are available from the web.
Setting this emulator up involves configuring several options. You should have a controller, graphics setup and audio configured to your own liking. Audio options include frequency and latency.
Controllers can be devices connected to the PC including joysticks; you can also use the keyboard to control games and a number of default options are already set.
All in all, once you have the ROM file loaded, pSX Emulator is a pretty good PS1 emulator for the PC.
