SWBF2 PS2 Support

Post#1 » Wed Jul 19, 2017 7:19 pm

Good night guys,
I have just received this email to my Community Ambassador mail, and I was wondering if any of you had any expertise in the PS2 field to help this guy.

Here's the mail -- Image

If you guys have any suggestions let me know so that I can copy them to him.

Hi @

,

So for PS2, the game is region locked, meaning people who have PAL PS2s and PAL copies of the game see the Europe server list. People who have NTSC PS2s with NTSC discs see the North America server list. There is also a region for Japan. I am not sure how SWBFSpy handles this now that GameSpy is down, maybe there is just 1 list now.

Sometime in 2011 a @

made a mod that would let us change the list that a server was showing up on so we could play with players from the other regions. The mod worked even after GameSpy went down and we started using Gamemaster and now SWBFSpy.

But sometime around Octoboer 2016 when Sony's DNAS went down completely, and we had to start using workaround DNAS servers, some of the EU clan players stopped being able to get to the server list. @

would know the details. I am not sure if they were using PAL or NTSC PS2s.

For the player who is asking for help, ask him what screen is he getting stuck on or what error message is he getting? Can he get to the GameSpy login screen or does DNAS fail?

Hey, these are the 2 replies I got today.

Hi, thank you for the reply. I get a code that is (-617) if I remember correct. Don't know if that will help. Cheeres

Hi, I can not get to the game spy page. It fails before that unfortunately :( I have the pal version of the game and I'm guessing pal PlayStation as it's from the uk, I appreciate all the help :)

Okay if hes failing at that screen I would say make sure he has the correct number entered for his Primary DNS. He needs to edit his network config by pressing square on the select connection screen. For SWBFSpy he should have Primary DNS to: 74.91.125.138

If that doesn't fix it, I think the problem is SWBFSpy might not be pointed at the PAL EU region DNAS server. There is one up now but I don't know its IP address. More info on that is here:

I'm pretty late but he got the wrong DNS for sure.
Still can't say who can run the game with it since it's only working for a few european (PAL) players, including me.
