PS2 emulators as of right now cannot play commerical games, it has only been tested with 2 games Blade 2 and Mortal Kombat:DA and it only shown the loading screens and it can play tech demo's, but not commercial games!

In this context it is a Homebrew "demo" made by amateur programmers.

and original games have .elf files too??

an .elf file is oviously a file with such an extension. and that's because it is an ELF file; that means that its format is "Executable and Linkable Format". ps2 executables are ELF files and the demo ones also have an extension accordingly. the ps2 executables from games have strange names, but one can distinguish them by looking into the system.cnf file on the game cd/dvd. that file contains a reference to the ELF file: smth. like BOOT2=cdrom0:sl...<--THAT is the ELF file. pcsx2 can get it from the cd/dvd. for nsx2 you have to extract and load it.
code1: i doubt you did something usefull. romdir tool is for extracting files out of bioses or ioprp images, witch is not the case here:) ioprp images contains elfs, but irx-elfs used by the IOP. the current matter is how to extract the main elf for the main ps2 proc i.e. EE. [see above]
if you did not understood what i wrote here...forget about...

I wish I could turn my PS2 games into a demo thingy like the other .elf files. There is one .elf file on MGS2 Substance. I like to snap some pictures and Load gamesaves like the Lamborgini Diablo from GT3, stuff that I can't do on a PS2.
If the programmers who made the demos teach me (I've made some programs before/No assembly), then I can help. I find this all fascinating but stressful too. I don't really know where to begin. I'm hex edited programs,made DOS programs, edited memory, and disassebled programs, but getting started gets me confused.
This attactment is a GS2 to Par vice versa converter. I got it from a friend on a GFCC
