Setting PCSX2


PCSX2 is the best and the most popular and stable Playstation2 Emulator available on the World Wide Web. This is a tutorial on how you can setup PCSX2 and get started with PCSX2 to start gaming PS2 games on PC right away.
Firstly download PCSX2. The Current Stable Version at the time of writing this article is PCSX2 v0.9.8. Download the Binary Archive like so:
DOWNLOADING PCSX2
PCSX2 needs to have a copy of Playstation 2 BIOS installed in the \bios\ directory to run the PS Games. Since the PS2 BIOS is a private and copyrighted property of SONY, any free-distribution and or trade of PS2 BIOS without permission from SONY would be (is) considered illegal. And, the PCSX2 User is actually supposed to obtain his copy of PS2 BIOS via PS2 Bios Dumping for use with PS2 Emulators.

But, with a bit of search in google, one can easily obtain a copy of PS2 BIOS. So, here are couple of download links for you to download PS2 BIOS from:
RapidShare(Link2)

So, lets visit Emu-Russia, and download the BIOS. In the Snapshot below, as you can see I’ve only downloaded the upper one (the Japanese Version) but, you can as well keep both the copies, the Archive is to be extracted and you’ll get a 4 MB BIOS file named scph10000.bin. Now copy the BIN file to X:\PCSX2-INST-DIR\Bios\
DOWNLOADING THE BIOS
 Now run pcsx2-r4600.exe in the PCSX2 Folder. Then, you’ll see the PCSX2 First Time Configuration Window. Go ahead and click Next with a check on Use Default Settings. Please note that the Default Configurations maynot work with some machines and may need some additional tweaks as your Machine’s Performance Ability is what matters here. Please refer to this page for PCSX2 best-performance Configuration.
Now, if your DirectX library is not up-to-date, the PCSX2 Configuration Wizard will ask you to update one.
GSDX UPDATE
So, go ahead and download the latest version of DirectX from the Microsoft Download Center.
MICROSOFT DIRECTX DOWNLOAD
The Next Window that you will see is the BIOS Selection Window. If you have not yet downloaded the BIOS and installed it in you \bios\ folder, then you will find that the List Box is empty.
 
So, download a copy of BIOS and install it in the \bios\ Folder. Remember that I have already mentioned earlier in this post that I’ve downloaded the Japanese Version of BIOS from Emu-Russia. So, if you too installed the Japanese Version, then you should see the following:
JAPANESE BIOS SELECTION
Then, you should click Finish and you should see the PCSX2 Main Window along with the Console and or Program Log Window like so:
PCSX2 MAIN WINDOW
Then click CDVD -> Iso Selector -> Browse and you should see the following window:
PCSX2 BROWSE CDVD IMAGE
And, you should be see the game running right away.
