    Hello.

    I want to dump my Slim model PS2 BIOS for "legal" emulation purposes.

    Made some research but couldn't find a straight and "simple" process to do it.
    And there's some stuff related to Free McBoot not working on Slim models,I'm not that into the PS2 scene,so,looking for some help.

    Assuming that my PS2 is modchipped,what would the process be?

    Sorry if it is in the wrong section,and thanks.

    It's not hard to find BIOS online. Also, I read somewhere that all emulation is illegal regardless of whether you own the game, console, both, or neither so your "legal" emulation thing is dead. But why not try to find BIOS online? Unless you did that already. I don't know how to dump the BIOS, but could this help you?

    It's really easy to find the BIOS on internet,but,since PCSX2 asked for MY LEGIT PS2 BIOS for Legal related stuff,I thought it would be better to dump mine.

    Thanks for the video,it actually helped me.

    With some more research,my PS2 might be FMCB-compatible after all,sadly I can't confirm it right now but certainly giving it a shot on the weekend.
    If it is, case solved.

    Thanks again!
