I'm finally able to play this online.
I'm a european dude and I have the none-online-variant of file #1 and back in its time didn't have the means to play online ... but now I have. My playstation 2 is modded and my love for the game aflame anew!
I have played singleplayer a lot - but I think I'll start with easy again so that I don't annoy more experienced players
I'll hope to have a lot of fun :3
