  • DOWNLOAD the ISO image file of game’s DVD   OR   if you prefer to buy them as DVD then make an image of that DVD using NERO(u can Google this if you don’t know). By doing this you will have the ISO file of your game, save it wherever you want.

[NOTE best way is to download the iso from torrent it will save your time and money]

  • Now open the psx2 folder and start the emulator by hitting  pcsx2-r4600.exe  now switch to MENU BAR>CDVD>ISO(click)

Then click on BROWSE (nearby) and add your game from your hard disk.

TIPS
  • If you are new to this do not mess around with its audio or video configuration setting and if you do then keep remember what change you have made because they aren’t the default settings so restoring to default may not work.
  • The performance of this emulator depends upon the hardware of your computer , some times it doesn’t start with your NVIDIA or ATI graphic card but integrated graphic card so you can add this manually using your graphic card control pannel.
  • If you have a powerful graphic card supporting dx10 or higher than you can select in the video plugin settings MENU BAR>VIDEO(GS)>PLUGIN SETTINGS(always select the HARDWARE renderer)

 

  • Graphics are almost same in every settings untill you are changing resolution but recommended resolution is NATIVE

 

  • And if you want a break than press ESC key the whole game will be paused and closed you can resume it from MENU BAR>SYSTEM>RESUME till you close PSX2. So do not close it in such conditions!

NOW YOU ARE ALL DONE!   THANKS FOR READING.
