Visa Q&A

Q: I will study in Beijing Foreign Studies University for one year, but why does the university only give me a 6 months visa extension?
A: Your visa extention is determined by the tuition fee you paid rather than the time you plan to study in China. For example, if you pay the tuition fee for one semester, your visa will be extended only for 6 months; if you pay the tuition fee for a whole academic year, you visa can be extended for the whole year.

Q: What’s the difference between Residence Permit and “X2” visa?

How to Play PlayStation (PS1) Games on PC

The original PlayStation, also known as PSX or the PS1, boasts an wonderful array of matches. The PS1 is long out of date, but the games are still plenty of fun to play. 

All you need is an emulator, a PS1 BIOS, along with your old PS1 games. Here's how to play PlayStation One (PS1) games on your PC!

What Is the Best PS1 roms Emulator?An emulator is a type of applications you install on your computer. It permits you to reproduce physical hardware at a software surroundings, all from the comfort of your current computer. Emulators exist for a variety of kinds of platforms and hardware.

A gambling emulator imitates a gaming console, allowing you to play with anything from a Commodore 64 to an arcade gaming cupboard, by a Nintendo 64 into a PlayStation 1, all without needing the original console.

There are a whole lot of PS1 emulators on the market. But, ePSXe remains the best alternative for performance, stability, and extra features. Updates are slow, but ePSXe has more than a decade of growth under its belt, making it a great choice to begin playing your old PS1 games once again.

Thus, let us begin with ePSXe.

How to Download ePSXeFirst things first: you need to download the latest version of ePSXe.

There is not any installation procedure for ePSXe. You extract the files in the archive file and then run ePSXe in precisely the exact same folder.

Right-click that the ePSXe download, pick your ZIP app, and extract. Read our guide describing how to extract files out of archives that are common prior to continuing with this tutorial.

When you conduct ePSXe for the very first time, you might encounter a dialog box asking you to extract extra files. Extract them, then firing up ePSXe.

ePSXe BIOS Configuration

There are lots of steps to finish before you may play a PS1 game in the ePSXe emulator. Before anything can happen, you will need a PlayStation 1 BIOS.

The BIOS that your PlayStation 1 utilizes is slightly different from the one that your PC uses. Your PS1 BIOS includes information relating to a PlayStation 1 hardware, such as the model, manufacturing region, and more.

EPSXe won't run without a suitable PS1 BIOS. The PlayStation 1 BIOS also dictates which games you can play, depending on its geographic place (such as Europe, North America, Japan, etc ). You will find simulated PS1 BIOS files, but they do not do the job and the real deal.

Once you split your PS1 BIOS, then you have to copy and paste the archive into the BIOS directory. You'll discover the BIOS directory at the ePSXe folder. The positioning of your ePSXe BIOS folder is dependent upon where you extracted the emulator. 

When you glue the BIOS archive into the correct folder, you must extract the contents. The emulator cannot read the ZIP file, only its contents.

How to Get PS1 Games on to Windows 10

Now that ePSXe is prepared, you can pick your favourite PS1 games and fire up them. PlayStation 1 games are freely available online. However, MakeUseOf can't help you locate them. Downloading data records for games which you do not possess is piracy.

These files relate to the disk images that contain the PS1 game data. You can rip your original PS1 games at precisely the exact same way you may rip a DVD to your computer. However, you must be sure the output is an ISO (or one of those additional PS1 game file formats ePSXe takes ) or your PS1 game won't load.

As soon as you have your PS1 ISO prepared, you can load this up in ePSXe. Head to Document > Run ISO, then browse to the PS1 match location. Pick the PS1 game file, and it'll begin loading. There you have it. You are now playing a PS1 game on your PC!
