Hello everyone, I am trying to launch PCSX2 from EmulationStation using the following configuration: Code: ps2 Playstation 2 F:\ROMs & ISOs\2002 - PlayStation 2 .iso .ISO .cue .CUE .BIN .bin .mds .MDS C:\Users\Gil^ Faizon\.emulationstation\systems\pcsx2\pcsx2.exe "%ROM_RAW%" --fullscreen --nogui --fullboot ps2 ps2  I have tried several other commands as well: Code:C:\Users\"Gil Faizon"\.emulationstation\systems\pcsx2\pcsx2.exe "%ROM_RAW%" --fullscreen --nogui --fullbootCode:C:\"Users"\"Gil Faizon"\".emulationstation"\"systems"\"pcsx2"\"pcsx2.exe" "%ROM_RAW%" --fullscreen --nogui --fullboot^for some reason this is the only way I could get Dolphin to run, but no luck for PCSX2 I have tried all three of those combinations with %ROM_RAW% and %ROM% both in and out of quotations. I have tried placing the --fullscreen --nogui --fullboot parameters both before and after %ROM_RAW%. I have tried placing pcsx2 and my iso directory at the root of my C: drive and have removed all spaces from their filenames. The closest I have gotten to getting PCSX2 to launch and be able to see the full path to my game is with the config I posted at the top. With that configuration PCSX2 launches successfully, but immediately pops up a 'PCSX2 Message' dialog window that says "Unexpected parameter 'F:\ROMs & ISOs\2002 - PlayStation 2\PS2 - Cold Fear.iso'". That is the full path to my game and the documentation doesn't specify any other parameters that it could be expecting. When I attempted placing pcsx2 and my iso at the root of my C: drive I got a similar message of "Unexpected parameter 'C:/isos/coldfear.iso'". I've been searching various forums for the past few days and have only come up with people who were only passing the emulator a partial path because they weren't using quotations around %ROM%. I can't find any cases of anyone getting an error despite passing the full path. If I launch PCSX2 normally and load the iso as I normally would everything runs smoothly. Can anyone provide any sage advice?  This is the only emulator that I can't get working with my EmulationStation setup.

Check your paths first. gilfaizon Newbie Posts: 10 Threads: 2 Joined: Aug 2017 Reputation: 0 08-16-2017, 04:02 AM (This post was last modified: 08-16-2017, 01:54 PM by gilfaizon.) OK, it appears that my original issue stemmed from PCSX2's dislike of special characters in my ISO paths, in my case the '&' and '-' in my setting. PCSX2 also disliked the spaces in the path when I used %ROM_RAW% so I switched it to %ROM% and that fixed things. This is my final (almost working) config: Code: ps2 Playstation 2 F:\ROMs\2002 Sony PS2 .iso .ISO .cue .CUE .BIN .bin .mds .MDS C:\Users\"Gil Faizon"\.emulationstation\systems\pcsx2\pcsx2.exe "%ROM%" --fullscreen --nogui --fullboot ps2 ps2  Now I just have to figure out why I keep getting the message "CDVD plugin failed to open. ..." every time I try to launch a game from EmulationStation or cmd. EDIT: Changing %ROM_RAW% to %ROM% also allows me to use '&' in my path. « Next Oldest | Next Newest »
