You've made your 2.5 year old sit on the potty for over 2 hours?! STOP potty training him! He is not ready and you will cause long term psychological and physical damage if you continue to force the issue right now. Stick him in a diaper or a pull up and leave him alone for a couple of more months.

Quit pushing him so hard. He's only 2 1/2 and he's obviously not ready yet.. Give it a few months and try again.

If you're forcing your child to sit there for 2 hours screaming than you are going to end up prolonging the process. That's great that peed on the potty after two hours but who has time to do that everyday?? If you really think he's ready put him in big boy underwear. He may have a couple of accidents but see if he catches on, most kids don't like the feeling of it running all the way down their leg. My daughter caught on immediately but we never forced her to sit there, when we were introducing her to the potty we would have her sit there for a minute with a timer and if she made it the whole minute she got a sticker. We always kept it very positive, that's probably why she took to it within 24 hours of big girl underwear.

I based my response directly off of your words. If you lied in your op I will change my opinion.... otherwise... it stands.
