I have downloaded PCSX2 version 1.0.0 for Windows from the PCSX2 team's official site, http://pcsx2.net/. I own a PS2 and I have installed PCSX2 with a bios. I want to play the PS2 game "DragonBall Z - Budokai 3", but I am experiencing a black screen when I try to play it. My configurations are standard.

At startup pcsx2-r5350.exe creates a program log. It says:

I have used ImgBurn, http://www.imgburn.com/, to create an .iso file so I can play the game without the disc. When I use "Boot CDVD (full)" the screen goes black and the intro sound plays. "Boot CDVD (fast)" makes just the screen go black. The program log, "Boot CDVD (full)", disc, says:

HLE Notice: ELF does not have a path.

Since the problem can be the video, I have tried to change the renderer,

"Config" > "Video (GS)" > "Plugin Settings..." > "Renderer:",

from the default, Direct3D9 (Software), to all of the other options, but nothing helps.

Any help will be appreciated.

Is your BIOS PAL or NTSC? –  Martin Toy Apr 4 '13 at 16:15
    
The game is bought in Europe, Denmark, so I suppose it may work best with PAL. I own a PlayStation, which is bought in Denmark too, but I downloaded a BIOS for the emulator, because I don't really know how to get it from the PlayStation 2 itself. The folder consists of many files. I don't know if they're the right ones. Do you need a screenshot of my folder? –  Kasper Knudsen Apr 4 '13 at 20:18
    
Here is information about the BIOS, I use. –  Kasper Knudsen Apr 4 '13 at 20:30
