AetherSX2 for Android has been becoming a hot topic on social media as well as different forums on the internet, among those people who are gamers. A large number of gamers have already tried the emulator for playing their favorite or preferred PS2 games on their Android devices.

It is noteworthy that currently PS5 is quite popular but many gamers even now play PS2 video games. And, the availability of the emulator helps such people to play their favorite/liked games.

AetherSX2 is even now in early access but the performance of this (Android) PS2 emulator is powerful as well as way quicker in comparison to other emulators. All valuable information about it will be provided here in full detail.

 Reviewing  the Emulator

AetherSX2 (for Android) is the latest Android PS2 emulator. It is Tahlreth that developed it. This emulator app is even now being developed further.

The development of the application is ongoing with constant updates from its developer as well as inputs from the users. It is early access that is why finding small issues is reasonable. Such as:

A user of AetherSX2 might find crashes as well as bugs. Therefore, he is advised to/should ever save his gaming progress, just if the emulator all of a sudden crashes.

The developer of this emulator recommends using Android devices with a Snapdragon 845 SoC as well as 4 cores such as Cortex-A75 with a score of 500 or more as well as a single-core Geekbench 5. 

This is the Way of Using AetherSX2

First of all, a person has to install the AetherSX2 emulator. After that, he needs to download as well as install BIOS PS2. Here, it is noteworthy that the file he has downloaded needs to be extracted.

He is also free to use a file extractor application to do so, like ZArchiver. Moreover, he will be able to save the extracted BIOS file in a new folder as well. Then, the user needs to download the PS2 games that he desires/likes to play on his android device. 

A user (of AetherSX2) is advised to download the PS2 games on Coolrom. He should choose games with the caption Sony PlayStation2. The emulator does not support games with other captions. After (once) downloading the games, he has to extract them. 

Next, he has to open AetherSX2. Now, he needs to tap ‘Next’ until he is in the ‘Settings’ page. He will scroll down as well as tap the Fast/Unsafe Defaults option in order to enable it. Now, he has to tap next. 

On the import BIOS page, the user of AetherSX2 has to import the BIOS page. He has to look for the BIOS folder that he has created. Here, he has to select the BIN extension file from the file extracted from the BIOS earlier. He will be back to the import BIOS page as well as will select the BIOS he has just added. 

Now, the user of the AetherSX2 needs to tap next. Then, he will come on the game directories page. He has to click (+) in order to add the game folder. Here he will store PS2 games. After that, he will tap ‘Use this Folder’. 

Finally, the user needs to tap Allow>Next>Finish. Now, he has to find a file extension. At last, he will be capable of playing the games on his Android device.
