Emulator Absolutely will Not Work
#1
I have no experience with emulators, and decided to give PCSX2 a try to play games unavailable in my region. While I was able to download and set up the emulator, as well as a controller, I have found that the emulator absolutely will not work with any of my ISOs - I either get a black screen or a "Please insert a PlayStation or PlayStation 2 disc". I have enabled the Skip MPEG hack, but this has no effect. Can anyone help me with this?

Please post the contents of the emulog.txt file after the problem occurs. The file can be found in "My Documents\PCSX2\logs" for the installer version or in "PCSX2\logs" for the portable/binary version.

Please make sure to enclose your emulog in code tags like so (remove the empty space on the closing code tag!):

Alright, I will post the emulog. Just a question - I saw in the rules something about "Warez" ISOs, can you please tell me if I have got a Warez file?

Sure. We'll see this in the emulog

You didn't try to load any game here. Did you at least configure your bios ? Did you dump it from your real PS2 console too ?

You don't know how to dump it from your console, but you are using one ?
Well. This is warez

Using a BIOS file with PCSX2 which you have downloaded from the internet or from a PS2 console you do not own is illegal. You must own the console the BIOS file came from (even if it's broken) to be legal.

Our forum does not tolerate any kind of warez talk / discussion / links and no support will be given as such.
Read our rules,specifically rule #1. Thread closed.

You may appeal this decision by proving that you own the item in question and disposing of any pirated copies. Staff will want to see some visual proof that you own the item (E.g. A picture of the item with your forum username and the current date on a sticky note next to it).
