This tutorial will show you how to add games (ROMs) to Gamma emulator on your iPhone or iPad. Gamma is a Playstation 1 (PS1 PSX) emulator available on the Apple App Store.

Gamma supports most of the popular PSX ROM formats including:

  • .BIN/.CUE
  • .ISO
  • .IMG
  • .CHD (added after recent update)
  • .PBP(added after recent update)
  • .MDS (added after recent update)

When adding a ROM to Gamma, you need to make sure you are adding a compatible format.

When downloading a PS1 ROM, the files are compressed in the following formats: .ZIP, .7Z, or .RAR. iOS natively supports .ZIP files and you can uncompress the file within any additional app, however, if you downloaded a PS1 ROM and it is a .7Z or .RAR file, then you will need to download an additional app to uncompress the file.

If you have a choice, you should download PS1 ROMs in .CHD format and compressed as a .ZIP file. .BIN/.CUE is a popular ROM format too, however, some ROMs have multiple .BIN files and Gamma emulator can only open one .BIN.
