My name's Luke and I'm from Australia. Massive Resident Evil fan, of all the games (even 6!).
Due to the fact that I live down under, and we're stuck with PAL ports, of which Outbreak is probably one of the worst (longer load times, no online, and back in the day I didn't have a 60hz compatible TV, so 18% slower gameplay as well D:), I've never played the game online.
I bought Outbreak when it first came out, but I was too young and stupid to appreciate it and sold it soon after D:
However, I've recently gotten back into the older titles and bought File #1 and #2 on eBay (PAL ports again, but at least I can play them at 60hz now) and I'm having a blast playing them. I don't know what was wrong with me when I was younger (I also bought and sold Code Veronica X... and then bought the HD version 2 months ago and also had a blast) but at least I'm better now!
Anywho, I found this website and I'm currently trying to get everything working on PCSX2. I just have a few questions to ask:
1. I mostly plan on playing split-screen with my boyfriend. Will he need an ObSrv account too?
2. The memory card file referenced in the Emulator sticky (viewtopic.php?f=13&t=4099
); is there a version of this file that doesn't have everything unlocked but does have the necessary networking stuff? I wanna unlock everything on my own, but if this isn't possible, it's no big deal, I can just unlock everything on my physical PAL copies offline.
3. I'm very noobish when it comes to networking. Because (I assume anyway) the servers are based in the US, will my connection suck and will I have a lot of lag? Even when playing splitscreen? Or is it like I host my own room so the connection will be fine?
Thanks in advance for the help and thanks for keeping this great game alive. You guys rock!
