Got my brother with me to play some games.
We came across two others but declined them since they weren't doing the stages we were currently doing.
I've been dying to play this game online since the original ps2 release and with the PCSX2 emulator, bios, patches etc I've finally got my gaming dream come true.
I still own the original discs but they are both pal versions.
Currently did File 1 3 levels completed, did half of 4 then my brother got a bit annoyed with his Civilian character stats so we canceled it and we played File 1 all night and got really tired half way through the final campaign so we are taking a break and coming back to these two levels later.
10pm 7am in UK timezone I should be online playing File 1 or File 2 with my brother for possibly till the end of june. I'm pretty competent so I wont screw you over but my memory has gotten a lil foggy with some of the codes and item placements on difficulties plus I'm not used to the snapy direction controls in this game I'm too used to the tank controls. There have been so many times I'll just run perfectly in one direction but the camera changes and so does my controls which makes me run into enemies.
It's a blast playing this game again and finally for the first time online with real players and not a jarring AI that you have to spam positive and assist me messages just to get certain AI's to team up with you on very hard + nightmare difficulties again.
I went back to that difficulty thanks to cheat engine and holy damn I have no idea how I was able to tolerate this AI and gameplay on VH + Nightmare difficulty back in the day XD?
