There are 2 threads answering your EXACT question
http://www.ngemu.com/forums/showthread.php?t=59028
http://www.ngemu.com/forums/showthread.php?t=59118
Next time SEARCH BEFORE POSTING
if i spent 2 hours searching, u think i havent seen those threads

I tried biosdump but only got an error message (couldnt open file or sommin)
i couldnt find a guide for that so had to give up

ad when i used ps2-link or w/e i couldnt get the program to connect to the ps2 (couldnt configure ip on computer side)

I have it chipped, and i have a na and its all hooked up, i just need the software side of it (and possibly an explo on it)

beacause i still couldnt do it

I did try PS2Link v1.22 and
InLink 1.3.2 Released with 1.3.7 patch ( Win32 )
ps2client v2.0.0 (unix, osx, cygwin)
PS2EXEC.EXE ( Win32 )

but they wouldnt connect to each other (i couldnt set the ps2 ip on the pc side)

That is not a reason to create a new thread...since your problem is the same you should have replied there..if everyone would create threads in this manner the forum would be flooded.

ok then i appologise for that

Dont suppose you could tell me how to configure any of

InLink 1.3.2 Released with 1.3.7 patch ( Win32 )
ps2client v2.0.0 (unix, osx, cygwin)
PS2EXEC.EXE ( Win32 )

(whichever is easiest to use would be most preferable)

Firstly, why not just look up PS2 BIOS Image on Google? It would save you so much time.

Secondly, to actually DUMP the BIOS onto your computer, you would need to remove the BIOS chip from the Motherboard, find a connector to hook it up to your computer (There are many, not specifically for PS2), compile (Because you most likely will not find) a program to dump the Image, and THEN you can do it.

Unless that's not what you were talking about...Then just ignore that... :thumb:

Furthermore
1)That would be illegal
2)You can actually DUMP your BIOS on your computer, the mod chip usually handles the physical job of getting the BIOS and sending it.

this is not exactly true in the case of you dumping the BIOS code. even though the modchip in essence circumvents certain checks ond overrides the bios during the boot-up process, most that i know of usually shut off after the disc boots up.
basically, its job is to boot unofficial code, such as dumpbios.elf. the program, from what i understand, just checks certain registers and dumps the info.
besides, all you really need to do is have a way to execute the code and somewhere to send the data, neither of which actually require a mod chip.
