PCSX2 works with the Namco System 246 BIOS!
#1
I've found out this yesterday. I was curious, so I decided to download the Namco System 246 BIOS that was dumped for MAME and set it on PCSX2. When starting the emulator without skipping the BIOS, an error message in Engrish will appear: "Boot File Not Exit". (The error isn't related to the emulator, but it's in the emulated system.) But if you skip it, it will try to start the game, though I haven't tried with an actual arcade game yet. So what do you think? I''m sure that it's possible to make a Namco System 246 emulator out of PCSX2.

BTW I've also tried to use the Namco System 256 BIOS, but that will freeze the emulator after a white screen.

If so, I'm sorry, but I just had to tell you about this discovery. Anyway, it seems like no arcade games would work, because the same error message would be displayed with both types of boot. That's probably because the Namco System 246 security dongles can't be used in PCSX2.

The Namco System 246 isn't a different console, it's an arcade system which uses the PS2 hardware.

Well, the fact that the BIOS image works somehow, however, proves that it's possible to make at least an alternate version of PCSX2 that works with the Namco System 246 arcade games. Also "Boot File Not Exit" could mean "Boot files don't exist" which could be a reference to the boot files in the security dongle that comes with the game along with the DVD. I never expected this to work properly on PCSX2, you know.
