Sorry but having a working PS2 where to get the BIOS from is the only legal way to use PCSX2.

if you have emulator of the consoles you actually own thats legal,but if you dont have the console im sorry there is no other legal way to get it,and for the ilegal way if the rules doesnt changed atm giving links or other ways to obtain bios is errr.. ilegal,i warn you if you keep talking about piracy you will get your warning thats for sure Closedeyes

Emulators are generally legal because they kinda just guess what the actual hardware (in this case the PS2) should be doing and they implement it on a software to run on another system and there's nothing wrong with that, distributing copyrighted material such as the BIOS or using it's code however is not legal and at the moment it's necessary to run the PCSX2 emulator (there were other emulators that did actually use the copyrighted software code from the emulated machine, and those emulators were illegal).

You may not care if it's illegal but we do and we wont give you support about it sorry.

If you want a bios, you must extract the bios files from your PS2. If you need more information, you can read this guide. It should cover everything you need to get the ps2 working on a computer.

Scroll down to the bottom and you should see where it's titled "BIOS(Basic Input Output System)." Kodos to Bositman for a clear and understanding guide.

Pcsx2 is legal, using it without owning a ps2 is not.

Search the forum for "legal", you'll find other thread exactly like this. So I'm closing this.
