Okay so wait.

1) I bought my US copies of File 1 and 2 only a couple years ago, and I play them on my ps3, as my ps2 died off long ago.

2) I'd been dreaming of playing this with my friends.

3) Heard about this, signed up, only to find out it only works with japanese versions on ps2.

4) My only option is emulator, I suppose...but that would be pirating, because I don't think there WAS a PC version.

Which brings me to:

5) So how exactly am I supposed to play this online with my friends? Even if I had a working ps2, where in the heck would I get a japanese copy of the game? And repeat that question for my friends?


Also, since none of us can read japanese, how would we complete puzzles?



************

Don't get me wrong, EXTREMELY happy that yall have done what ya could, even though it means that the game still can't be played online for the most part, but it's more than Capcom themselves have done, so i'm rooting for ya, and hopin this becomes more accessible!
If you bought the game from Capcom (not from other people) then you can download the Japenese version legally

I am pretty sure that is wrong!
That would be like "I bought RE4 for Gamecube, now I can download it for PS2, PC and XBOX". No, no, no!

I've got both a Japanese slim PS2 and Japanese fat PS2. Just ordered Japanese copies of both File 1 and File 2.

The HDD and broadband adapter I have are the ones that came out in America. Does anyone know if those work with a Japanese fat PS2? It would blow to play File 1 without HDD support. Having said that, are most people right now playing online with HDD support?

AFAIK those BB adapters are universal.

If I recall, the only difference was that the Japanese version only had an Ethernet port.

You can run the full game off the HDD with a boot method :D Rooms appear as "DVD-Mode" but they would be running off the HDD [3-5 heartbeats in-between load doors]. If you play without the HDD you would be the last to load and get left behind :S

Slim PS2 + HDD would be slow since the usb speed on the PS2 is 1.1 Phat PS2 & HDD or PC emu is the way to go :P

haha... yeah this guy is full of himself. If he's doing it to be funny that's fine, but he's certainly not better than everybody.

if there is someone better than everybody it's the_fog, who brought online play back.

Unfortunately no, as far as my knowledge goes, the japanese version of the game and a japanese ps2 are needed in order to play through the server, either that or emulator. You could also buy swap magic for your current ps2, this is a method to trick the ps2 into reading japanese games and having you play them, but you do need the game itself, that is a definite requirement.
