You can run ePSXe with command line option in mythgame.
- ePSXe 1.6.0
- Pete's MesaGL Driver 1.75 for video plugin.
- P.E.Op.S. OSS Audio Driver 1.8 for sound plugin.
- ammoQ's padJoy Joy Device Driver 0.8 for first parallel gamepad
- xjoypad for second parallel gamepad (/dev/input/js1).
- a ps game iso-image.
You need xjoypad because ePSXe only read one gamepad and with xjoypad you
can control mythTV with gamepad/joystick.
http://www.ngemu.com/ will help you to do this.
Try to search "ePSXe on Linux HOWTO" with google for ePSXe guide (I miss
this link, but I'am sure still exists).
If all settings is OK and a game can run on ePSXe, try edit your
gamelist.pc to run ePSXe command line option (epsxe -nogui -loadiso
<your_iso_image>). Do Scan for New Game in mythgame setting, your ps game
will appear in mythgame pc system. Ready for playing...
To resolve gamepad problem, read Linux kernel joystick related
documentation and xjoypad README carefully.
If everything is OK, you can try to control mythTV with your second
gamepad. xev command will help you to get mythTV shortcut keycode. Use it
to xjoypad command line options.
Finally, you must edit /etc/rc.d/rc.local to make all active and running
#remove parallel printer module if exists
/sbin/modprobe gamecon map=0,7,0,0,7,0
#I will post complete xjoypad options tommorow, sorry...
/usr/local/bin/xjoypad -device /dev/input/js1
Be carefull for ps emulator legal issue.
