Oh really? I didn't know, that's cool, what was the hardest part? And yea the FPS could vary depending on a person's computer so actual PS2 might be better.Also, everybody, thanks to the changes that @ Led made earlier tonight, SWBF2 is up and running on the SWBFspy DNS. Use 126.96.36.199 as Primary DNS on your PS2 to get to the server list and play.
You can also create a GameSpy ID and login to it, but the buddies list and leaderboard might make you get the "Lost connection to GameSpy" message if you do this.
For those of you wanting to play Battlefront 1, I just tried it and that is also working! Its funny, there are actually more servers on PS2 Battlefront 1 than PS2 Battlefront 2 right now. There are 3 servers up, I don't think I've played in anything bigger than a 4 man for this game really.
If you guys want to host a server you have 2 options:
Option 1 download the .exe that OldSnake made and use it in place of your vanilla or GameMaster .exe.https://mega.nz/#!WdYxhSoQ!py_faVaYWl75 ... 5nr6F6LFOc
Option 2 edit your hosts file. This is what Dracula is using and his server is up right now. You would need to edit the hosts file on the computer you are hosting the server from and put this in there. His hosts file looks like this:
Code: Select all
I am not an expert on where the host file is located on Windows computers but its basically just copy pasting this into that file. Those of you that have done it before should be able to do this easily
Shoutouts to Led, OldSnake, Drunken_Master, xCrI$TiAhNx, Anthony, Phobos, Jedikiller, Kalle, Kintaro, Kratos, Scarz, JamesCableCar, and everyone else involved in getting GameMaster replaced with a new workaround and doing testing. I will try to update my guides when I get the chance.
If people have issues connecting to SWBFspy for whatever reason, players can also use 188.8.131.52 as their Primary DNS. This is Christian's DNS and it should bring you to the same server list that SWBFspy does.
