'''PCSX2''' is a plugin oriented program. Your '''pcsx2.exe''' is the main processor that can emulate the real PS2 on the PC but it cannot work alone. It needs graphics plugin to show the picture and the sound plugin to play some music or ingame sounds it also needs PAD plugin so you'll be able to play with your keyboard, mouse or gamepad. Moreover there may be more than one plugin of one type so you may choose which is better suited for your game. All plugins are stored (by default) in '''plugins''' folder of your main PCSX2 folder. Some plugins like [[GSDX]] for example can at times be updated quite often so sometimes you may desire to renew only this plugin. In order to do it you'll need to download the updated version and extract it by using archiver into your '''plugins''' folder. The changing of some settings (choosing your new plugin) may also be required after this (see the section about how to set up plugins).

PCSX2 will also require the BIOS from your real PS2 in order for you to play. The PS2 BIOS is a binary file can be obtained from your console. It contains some special routines used by games (like memcard handling support) which are not emulated by PCSX2 internally. The dumping of BIOS is one the hardest stages in your PCSX2 experience. You may get some instructions [http://forums.pcsx2.net/thread-2298.html#Bios here] and start dumping by downloading the tool from [http://pcsx2.net/downloads.php?p=tool this place] or use the official guide [http://forums.pcsx2.net/thread-2329.html here].
