It's pretty complicated to explain how the software is actually working in details, but as far as I know and used the application there is:

  • the base software that emulates the PS1 operating system
  • the plug-ins (sound, video, gamepad, memory card, CDROM)
  • BIOS (the actual OS that has all the necessary instructions)

The ePSXe loads the BIOS file and then all the plug-ins along with the PS1 ISO or disc and boots the game.
