Re: Getting online in 2018 - flummoxed.

I use a fat PS2 with OPL and an internal hard disk drive. Best way to play in my opinion. Yes I'm inclined to agree, when it was running well my old phat / hdd / opl beastie was great, allowing me to play Tribes AA (impossible otherwise in the UK), and well all the joys of quick loading screens etc...

Re: Getting online in 2018 - flummoxed.

Cheers Chak, fair enough I'll just wait til I see copies of BRO and CoD 3 in the local CEX, and try find PAL players there. I sometimes host an empty Area 51 lobby for a bit, but I don't have Flatout 2, sorry mate. Cheers for your reply :)

Re: Getting online in 2018 - flummoxed.

One last question - would a coupla of your folks mind briefly detailing how you run your PS2s online? ie do you just play straight from the disc, do you use OPL, and if so which method (HDD, SMB or USB), are you emulating on your PC? Cheers muchly in advance for any info you care to share :) edit: N...

Re: Getting online in 2018 - flummoxed.

Okay so no joy with that approach. So I've fiddled further, and d/led the files linked to on The List, ESR-patched and burnt them to disc, and interestingly (but annoyingly) get the same error message every time, which is (-402) 'disc information error'. I presume the DNAS-bypassing system doesn't r...

Re: Getting online in 2018 - flummoxed.

I'm not 100% sure if it will work, but you should definitely try setting an IP address manually in your network configuration utility and then see if you can connect to COD 3. I had to set it manually in order to connect to NFS Underground and Biohazard Outbreak File 1 and File 2. I can certainly t...

Re: Getting online in 2018 - flummoxed.

Glad to hear you have at least some online capability now. Ironically Area 51 is the one game I can not get working :) Also Cristian is a member of this forum. He hasn't been active in awhile but if you private message him there is a chance he will get the notification and respond. His profile link...

Re: Getting online in 2018 - flummoxed.

A quick update - I have just managed at the frst attempt to connect Area 51 PAL (original disc) onto Christian's server. So my CoD-related problems are clearly disc / version issues, I dunno why my CoD3 wont connect, it's SLUS_214.26 but it is an ESR-patched disc. I wonder if this affects the DNAS-b...

Re: Getting online in 2018 - flummoxed.

With Cristian's DNS and the IP set to auto in your network config, it will still go through the DNAS but it tricks the DNAS into thinking it passed and then connects to Cristian's servers to play the game. I don't have experience with PAL games as all of mine are NTSC. I would maybe join the Facebo...

Re: Getting online in 2018 - flummoxed.

Cheers mate, that's awesome. Please just bear with me a moment whilst I clarify /remember in my head what's what - in order to access any of the listed servers I simply add the DNS number into a new Network Config setting? Do I need to set a manual IP or leave it as Auto in the network config progra...

Re: Getting online in 2018 - flummoxed.

Hi, thanks a lot for your reply, much appreciated but with the slight snag that I don't have facebook. So I guess what I need to know is - could you give me a list of active DNSs, mainly I'll be happy to play the CoDs and Area51 for now. My PAL copy is sat all cosy in its steelbook wanting some acti...
