A young PS2 emulator with plans for an optimized Android port, as well as a fast, accurate, and easy-to-use PC port.

A large portion of the PS2's library can boot or get to menus. Some titles can even go in-game, including high-profile ones such as Final Fantasy X and Shadow of the Colossus. Not intended for general use.

Using the Emulator

DobieStation requires a copy of the PS2 BIOS, which must be dumped from your PS2.

The various command line options are as follows:

-b [BIOS file] - Takes the form of /path/to/bios.bin. Required for booting DobieStation.
-f [file] (optional) - The ELF or ISO that DobieStation loads. Takes the form of /path/to/game.iso or /path/to/homebrew.elf.
-s (optional) - Skip the BIOS boot animation when starting DobieStation with an ISO/ELF loaded.
