Can I dump PS2 BIOS using Eprom programmer
#1
Hi guys

Newbie here wanting to try PCSX2

First thing I wanted to know is can I read the BIOS chip from a scrap PS2 using my TL866A Eprom Progammer?
I have experience using that to read and reprogram other BIOS already, eg PC motherboards that will not boot at all, GPU BIOS chips etc.  I have no problem with desoldering the old BOIS if necessary.

Once I read a BIOS chip I get a ROM or BIN file which is the same size as the Eprom capacity.  Is that what I need for PCSX2?

Cheers

For PCSX2 you need only .BIN file, which you got from PS2 BIOS dump. Check it with .DAT file for PS2 BIOSes from Redump and if your file valid - place it in "bios" folder and select in "Config" -> "Plugin/BIOS Selector".
