.Hack Fragment Back Online!

Post by Viscosity » Mon Jul 21, 2014 2:18 am

Thanks to Nosferatu for pointing it out, .Hack Fragment has appeared to have been reverse engineered and has stripped away DNAS restrictions. The server software has also been posted on git-hub meaning that the game is now technically online forever. The game was only released in Japan but a good majority of the game has been translated with more to come. The game is an online rpg with similarities to Phantasy Star Online. It allows three player co-op and an offline mode. This is an interesting game to be added to online library since there are very few online rpgs that still have their servers up. At this point you can only play the game if you can play backups on your PS2 or through the pc emulator.

um, most games are not DNAS restricted anymore, since Sony has taken down their servers for ps2 online checking, but even then, I'm surprised no one got it's DNS? If not, could always be gotten if you have an original

what do you mean? Most games use DNAS to get online. The only ones that do not are tibes, thps3, and socom 1. Any other ones have it or has had it removed by a mod.

I've been playing the game since they brought it back. Generally, you want to pick up everything you can in dungeons (spells, equipment, etc.) and sell them at the shops until you have at least 10-15k at which point you can start buying the best equipment currently available from the weapon store on a server that uses the net slum as the root town.

The best of the best equipment so far I believe can only be gotten offline since currently the highest level field you can go to is about 24-28 on aura's reborn server. I'm level 18 if you guys want to schedule some runs some time.

Technically you could, but it wouldn't have their translation patch. Also, some changes they've made in the latest "build" basically require that you play on the latest build, otherwise your game's gonna crash if you ever encounter one of the admin's hacked custom character.

The project admins encourage you to buy a copy of the game anyway, because of whatever gray area ethics involved in downloading their patched iso.

If you can't/don't want to hard mod or soft mod your ps2 then your best bet is to download their latest build and play it on PCSX2.
