Thread: playstation emulator

  1. #1

    Smile

    i have acquired an alleged playstation 2 emulator called pcsx_2[1].9.1_ and i was wondering how i can use it (im sorry if i break any forum rules by asking the wrong questions) it looks like i would load a rom just like the old n64 and snes ones but do i have to download any kind of specific file , i assume that just popin a game into the cd drive wouldnt work but i figured there roms i kind download via bittorrent or p2p , if any could post an url or answer any of my questions i would greatly appreciate

    First you need to using the most up-to-date version, PCSX2 0.9.2, here: https://filesharingtalk.com/vb3/games...eleased-138389

    Secondly you'll need the BIOS files, you can find them by going to Torrentspy and searching for "PS2 BIOS".

    Apparently putting a PS2 disk into your DVD drive will work but you can download PS2 roms from Torrentspy, private Bittorrent trackers or newsgroups.

    As a sidenote, you are going to need a pretty powerful PC and a willingness to play around with settings.

    There's a compatiability list and guides here: http://www.pcsx2.net/

    Just find a game that works fully and is near or below 1gb, save yourself some heartache. Good luck.

    If you have an ISO image you the emulator can just read that file, you don't need Daemon Tools or the like.
