PCSX2 versions 0.9.7 and higher have full commandline support. <ref> [http://forums.pcsx2.net/Thread-blog-The-return-of-the-Commandline?pid=118520#pid118520 The return of the Commandline! (blog entry)]</ref> You can use the following format:

:pcsx2 [IsoFile] --toggle --option=value ... etc

The full list of options are:
* <code>-nogui</code> -- the program will not show GUI and will exit on ESC
  −
* <code>-skipbios</code> -- skips BIOS on ISO loading (so you will not have to wait)
  −
* <code>-elf [file]</code> -- executes an ELF image (like PS2 demo, not useful for games, though)
  −
* <code>-nodisc</code> -- will not start ISO/DVD and will only load BIOS (so you can configure language there)
  −
* <code>-usecd</code> -- will start the configured CDVD image (if you have previously configured one in CDVD plugin configuration)

To get the full list of available options start pcsx2 with <code>-help</code> parameter.

* '''F3''' -- Loads the currently selected game slot. You may have problems with graphics/sound if your configuration differs from the configuration the slot has been saved under (for example you have changed GDSX to ZeroGS). Some rare (or early) PCSX2 versions can also be unstable after loading. You may or may not be able to use the quick slots from the different PCSX2 version (when you change the main PCSX2 executable) so do not forget to save to memcard through the game interface periodically.
