Transfer your BIOS files to the retroarch/system/PCSX2/bios/ directory. There is no region locking so if you have a PAL BIOS on your PS2 you can still play NTSC games, and vice versa. You'll also need the BIOS dumped from your PS2. Feel the need to run some classic PlayStation 2 games? It's set to get a lot easier, as the RetroArch team have reported on their work with PCSX2. They've had a bountyopen to pay someone to do it since 2018, with it currently sat at $915. The good news is that progress appears to be good!
