Download Program From Here 

First let me start by saying that this program requires a fast ass computer  and you have to tweak the settings a lot to get everything perfect. Pictured below are the specs for my PC and I can play almost any PS2 with almost no lag I still have to tweak some games sometimes to get them just perfect.

I love this software but it has a shitload of options to tweak and a lot of things you can mess up on and a lot of things to speed up your games.All the options and freedom you get is  not really a bad thing but it’s not a good thing for users that don’t know the difference between a bite and a byte.  If and when you get a game to run and it runs slow  there are a lot of tweaks you can do to speed it up I can cover some of them by request but I won’t do that in this post.

my specs

Ok so after downloading the program and installing it and already having a game you want to play open the program.  I REPEAT DO NOT install and try to run this software unless you have a dual core CPU with at least 8 GB’s of ram because you will be wasting your time.

The first time you open its going to ask you what language you want to set the program up for.
Sorry for taking the pictures this way I had to use my phone and my dog kept messing with me. Anyways REMEMBER this SCREEN for now leave the default settings and continue. This screen will be used to configure plug ins to increase performance. So if and when I get request to write a how to speed tweak remember this screen.
This is an example of the next screen that will pop up. Yes its crazy but you must have a real PS2 to get the bios from it and then put it on your computer so this program can boot that bios. Some of you might be lost and not understand that its ok here is a hint the bios can be found online. After you find a PS2 bios save it under documents/pcsx2/bios folder which is the default setting. Once you do that hit finish. You are done installing.


Once you have your program installed this is where you go to get started on configuring your controller.

After that hit apply and ok and you’re done. If you run into problems leave me a comment. This program requires some tweaking at times to get it to run perfect I won’t cover that unless it’s requested so leave comments if you need help with that.

      hi thanks for your comment. First off i know this sounds dumb but make sure you have your controller turned on before you start the program or it wont work. Well it wont work for me unless i turn on my Xbox controller first. If you have a wireless Xbox controller make sure you installed the wireless dongle and its installed correctly. what type of operating system do you have ? after installing the dongle make sure you sync your wireless Xbox controller to the dongle or it wont work. when you click on the settings for lili pad are you under the pad 1 tab ? and trying to assign the buttons manually ? let me know if you need a screen shot of what I am talking about.

          What’s the problem and what are you trying to use it with

  • justin

    When i play some games, I want to run at a slant (EX: up/right or up/left or down/right/ or down/left) but I don’t know how to configure that. I’m using a xbox360 controller.

    • Big O

      for those games i use the analog stick and it works fine did you program the analog stick ? you have to program both of them look at the last picture above in the post to program them. Let me know if that don’t work.

  • Hey bud don’t know if this is still active but when im playing a game my character is walking slightly to the bottom right and i just bought a new controller, but i switched it out anyway. I just wanted to know if there is a way i could fix this. Thanks!

      In the Lilypad general settings make sure you have Xbox 360 box checked or if you are using a ps3 controller check that box.Try adjusting the axis sensitivity in Lilypad. If anything it could be a bug make sure you have the latest install of PCSX2 uninstall the program and re install it just for grins.

    how would i get the program installed on my 360 and will it let me play jak and daxter on 360? will it make me not able to play normal 360 games or let me play ps2 and 360?

    • Big O

      This emulator program is designed to run on Windows or Linux operating system. Super Nintendo or genesis emulators can work in theory on a Wii or ps3 but xbox 360 i personally would not bother with that system.

  • daniel

    hey there ive been trying to configire my xbox360 pad (usb wired) for a while and the pc has installed the driver but the emulator doesnt give xbox pad options.

    • so your xbox controller works on other games? have you tested it with a pc game? is it a real xbox 360 controller ? what version of pcsx2 do you have ?

    This really isn’t very expensive, and if you’ve played the game before or are a fan of the series, this is the best way to go.
    In 2002, Sony Computer Entertainment published a Play – Station 2 Linux kit
    that allowed individuals to change their PS2 gaming system into a personal computer without voiding the
    guarantee and rendering it absolutely legal.
    It comes in how big of an original DS game printer cartridge and is inserted
    into the Nintendo ds lite via the Slot-1 of the Nintendo ds console.

  • This is the second time Sony makes this soft of claim. There is a free disc available from Netflix or an update through the Playstation PS3 network that you
    can use to stream Netflix instant movies. Yahoo answers is great because
    it allows potential customers to view your answer then look
    up information about you from your picture and profile
    information that will be linked back to your website.

    Hey I was wonder if you could email the specs needed for Dark Cloud 1 & 2 to run pretty smoothly. Also a more detailed list of computer hardware requirements if you would.

    • I will give you the specs I have asap Tonight IF not the latest tomorrow night.

  • GimmeTheName
