Will the BIOS dumper break my ps2?
#1
I have been looking at PCSX2 lately and everything looks good except for the BIOS dumper. I want to have a ps2 emulator on my laptop, but still have my ps2 working also. I am wondering- what exactly does the BIOS dumper do?Unsure

As youve been told before... no it wont harm your ps2 in any way. You will still be able to play games on it perfectly fine.

Quote:(n) The act of copying raw data from one place to another with little or no formatting for readability. Usually, dump refers to copying data from main memory to a display screen or a printer. Dumps are useful for diagnosing bugs. After a program fails, you can study the dump and analyze the contents of memory at the time of the failure. Dumps are usually output in a difficult-to-read form (that is, binary, octal, or hexadecimal), so a dump will not help you unless you know exactly what to look for.
(v) To output an image of computer memory.
