Playstation 2 Emulator (PCSX2) - Load your favourite PS2 games on PC

Use Playstation 2 Emulator if you want to load and play Playstation 2 games on your computer.


PCSX2 is World's first Playstation 2 emulator.

PCSX2 is the first PS2 emulator to slowly shows us that commercial games might be fully playable soon!

As you might recognize from the name, it was developed by the team behind the PS One emulator PCSX.


Requirements:


- PS2 ROM

Playstation 2 Emulator (PCSX2) 1.0.0 is
licensed as Freeware for the Windows operating system / platform. Playstation 2 Emulator (PCSX2) is provided as a free download for all software users (Freeware).

                                                              Pcsx2 1.0.0 Installer:




Pcsx2 Bios:




Best Configuration Guide:
Now that we have our emulator setup, it's time to start configuring it. The settings this guide will show you how to play most games while keeping the emulator stable and without crashes or game glitches.


Plugin Setup


On first boot up, it will request directories to ISOs and the BIOs, for now you can keep these blank and continue on, but make sure you choose a bios (preferably the USA one) before

continuing, but the screen that is most important through the sequence is the plugin selection. When it comes to selecting the plugins, make select them as follows:




If you are on an AMD CPU, change the Gsdx plugin to the SSE2 version, as SSSE3 and SSE4 versions do not work with any CPU except Intel E and Q model Quads (and ix processors). Once setup as seen, click "Configure" next to the Gsdx plugin to go to the video settingsscreen:




If you think you have a mid range video card, leave it as it is. If you have a video card similar or on par with an ATI 48xx model, you can change the D3D internal res to something higher to get "HD" graphics. If you are using an operating system before Vista/7, click the Renderer box and change it to DirectX 9.

If you want to change control settings, click the Configure button and change the controls as you wish. Once these steps are done, press OK to exit the first-time guide and enter the emulator.




Core Emulator Settings


This part is quite long winded, so I created screenshots for each part to help make this guide quicker to follow. First we open the Configuration menu for the emualtor by going to Config > Emulation Settings. Once done, you will see a screen showing the current processing type the emulator is set to. Make sure it is setup like this:




Once this is done, click VUs on the bar at the top to see this screen:




Set it up exactly does in the screenshot. As you can see, the recommended options are in bold, this means that if a game crashes or glitches, these options could be the culprit, remember this.
NOTE: SuperVU has always seemed more stable, but if you want speed over compatibilty, change to MicroVU.


Click on the next option on the bar to show the next things we can configure:





I say can because there is nothing really to configure, but the PAL frame rate can be change to 60 (as it is in the screenshot) to gain the same speed in games as NTSC ones. If you are okay with the normal speed of PAL games, ignore this and carry on to the next screen.
NOTE: The framerate is locked in PCSX 9.8, but can still be changed by going into PCSX2_vm.ini in the "inis" folder and changing it under "frameratePAL".




This screen is the most important, as this is where things can be cut back to gain speed in games, but could also break them. The settings in this screenshot are very stable and will not cause problems for most games, so change them to match the screenshot. If a game you are trying to run has loading or graphical problems, check back here and try messing around with the different options to see if anything changes. VU Cycle Stealing can sometimes cause weird frame skipping in some games (Kingdom Hearts II and Final Fantasy X-2 which I've seen so far), so if this happens to you just try lowering the cycle stealing.

And last but not least; Game Fixes:





You do not need to change anything unless the game you are playing is one of the ones listed on a particular fix. With PCSX2 9.8, game fixes are automatically enabled depending on the game.
Your emulator is now ready!



Loading an ISO


Loading an ISO is easy: all you have to do is go to the CDVD option and click "Iso", then click ISO Selector and browse for your ISO. Any previously loaded ISOs will be selectable in the ISO Selector menu.
