The PS2 emulator PCSX2, is an emulator compatible with a large number of games and with any PC Joystick, so the game experience is quite similar to playing on a Playstation 2.
This emulator needs the game to be in ISO format to be able to execute it. But you may wonder:
What is the Iso Format?:
Iso format is a format commonly used to transform entire CDs or DVDs into a single and simple file that can be transformed into a DVD or CD through any CD / DVD burning program.
Many of the pirated programs and games that you find on the Internet are in that format, for the simple reason that it is quite easy to compress and upload to the Web.
Personally, the best function I find for ISOs is to be able to easily backup my CDs / DVDs. Because if in the future the original disk is damaged, the only thing I have to do is use that ISO file to re-record it in a few clicks.
Another advantage of ISO files is that they can be mounted in virtual drives without the need to burn them to a disk, which is great if we have a netbook that does not have a reader.
There are many ways to create an Iso from a DVD or CD, for that reason the detailed tutorial on how to do it I will publish it in the coming days. It will include details of how to mount these files in virtual drives. So if you want to see that tutorial I recommend that you become a fan of the fanpage using the fanbox on the right, or simply subscribe by email.
Likewise, below I will leave you a Quick Tut on how to create an ISO file from the DVD of your favorite game so that you can use the emulator.
