PCSX2 - Playstation 2 emulator installation and setup

Filed under
Software
HowTos

This article will show you how to install and setup the PCSX2 emulator on Linux, more specifically, the latest Mint release; although, it works just as well on Windows, and probably even better. We will do a native install and not use WINE. We will focus on the trickier steps, like BIOS firmware, controller configs and such. We will not be doing any game optimization, graphics improvements or similar. My experience with PSP2 games, game sources, free downloads, or anything of that sort is extremely limited. However, when it comes to Linux, I can surely help you, and that's what we will do today. Afterwards, it's up to you to get the games, tweak them and play them.

  • Dark Matter
    Today, March 23rd 2017, WikiLeaks releases Vault 7 "Dark Matter", which contains documentation for several CIA projects that infect Apple Mac Computer firmware (meaning the infection persists even if the operating system is re-installed) developed by the CIA's Embedded Development Branch (EDB). These documents explain the techniques used by CIA to gain 'persistence' on Apple Mac devices, including Macs and iPhones and demonstrate their use of EFI/UEFI and firmware malware. Among others, these documents reveal the "Sonic Screwdriver" project which, as explained by the CIA, is a "mechanism for executing code on peripheral devices while a Mac laptop or desktop is booting" allowing an attacker to boot its attack software for example from a USB stick "even when a firmware password is enabled". The CIA's "Sonic Screwdriver" infector is stored on the modified firmware of an Apple Thunderbolt-to-Ethernet adapter.
