How to install the original Gran Turismo for PS1 on your PC

You might be like us and want to relive 1998, and jump right back into the epic game Gran Turismo on the original Sony PlayStation. However your old console might be in storage somewhere and it might no longer connect to your TV. So as long as you have the original console and game the steps below are legal.

To set up Gran Turismo on the PC is really straightforward, all you have to understand is that you need 2 things, an Emulator and a ROM.


This software is to be considered as the virtual console (PlayStation). There are many to choose from but each varies on setup and how they render the graphics. The best one I found for Gran Turismo was DuckStation, and here are the following steps to get it running on a Windows PC:
  1. Recommended - DuckStation: download the "" version.
  2. BIOS files - these are required for the emulator to run. Only download these files if you actually own the PS1 console.
  3. Extract DuckStation to any desired location on your PC.
  4. Create folder "Bios" under the new DuckStation Folder
  5. Transfer BIOS files to the new BIOS folder
  6. Run duckstation-qt-x64-ReleaseLTCG.exe
  7. Optional setup
    • Controller settings - setup accordingly
    • Display Settings - if the graphics are too pixelated, you can change the render mode. Every PC is different, so it's a trial and error approach.
    • For further setup, I recommend this tutorial -



This is what replaces the physical CD ROM. You would want to Google Search Gran Turismo Rom for PS1 to find an available one. Again this is only legal if you actually own the CD.
