Which emulator and which settings are the best for PSX recording with BIOS?

Are you for real mariofan? You know full well we recommend Bizhawk for pretty much everything! ;)

but how can i convert a bin to cue, ccd or so? can you give me a link?
MadMatty
You shouldn't be converting anything. Download good disc images or rip your own original discs.

You are going to hit problems with games that have audio tracks as you cant just scan a .bin and know where they are. Just get good images from the get go from sites such as coolrom which host the Redump.org images.

Mariofan98

Where are you getting those numbers from ? I've not encountered a PAL game that uses more than x512 vertical

when not must i need your help
MadMatty
I am a little concerned by this question. At no point should you be specifying in the avs a fixed resolution. The emulator will dump the game in the correct 'Hardware' resolution. The most you would need to do is enable 2x pixel doubling for low res games. PlayStation will always come out with borders to account for any overscan or games with mixed resolutions.

The maximum vertical res is usualy 480 with ntsc games and 512 on pal games. Horizontal can be 640 but sometimes larger. If the playstation hires mode is used then you will see 512 horizontal res.

and which avi res must i use in bizhawk and crop settings in the avs for PAL?
MadMatty
You don't ever need to specify a resolution in bizhawk. That is only for resizing which you don't need to do. Bizhawk will always dump in 1:1 resolution.

As for cropping that is game dependant so I casnt give you any numbers. Just crop to what fits all of the gameplay in without cutting any section of video. Don't crop to bios screen as that is usually offset to the left and also smaller than most PAL games.
