BIOS/Startup Screen With PCSX2 and Dolphin?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I've been playing with Launchbox for a while and everything seems to work well for the most part, but I was wondering if there was a way or a specific command line option I should choose to see the Gamecube BIOS/startup and the PS2 BIOS/startup in Dolphin and PCSX2 respectively. They both start fine if I run the emulators by themselves but when launching through Launchbox it always skips the bios and goes directly to the game. I know this is a pretty trivial thing but I was wondering if there was a workaround to this or something I'm missing (Demul boots with BIOS fine through Launchbox). I'm aware that with ePSXe there's a command you can add to force it to launch the bios before starting the game.

Hi and welcome to the forums. :) 

I'm not sure if this is possible on Dolphin or not, i believe the dolphin team wrote there own bios for the emulator, that is why you do not need to provide one for the games to work on it, but i could be wrong so if anyone wants's to correct me on that feel free. As for PS2 go to tools/manage emulators double click pcsx2 and in the command line box add the command --fullboot, that should then play the bios when you launch a game.

Excellent. Thank you for the PCSX2 solution Neil, that was the command I was looking for!

As for Dolphin I'll continue to be on the lookout for potential solutions but thanks for the help in the meantime. :)

Back for one more update. Looks like the issue fixed itself after getting the latest version of Dolphin and making sure the IPL's were in the right folders. Thanks for the help!
