Hello there

Postby jimi » Fri Apr 17, 2020 10:54 pm

Hello

I finally had time to set up Outbreak on my European PS2 (slim model).
I purchased both Outbreak 1+2 from Japan. Got them from suruga-ya. Dirt cheap.
Ripped them.
Patched them to remove DNAS and apply English translation.
I had to split the images up, because of my FAT32 USB drive. My PS2 is slim, so I can't use a harddrive.
I used USBUTIL 2.2 for that.
I then managed to get FMCB running and was able to start the game.
I was able to successfully set up networking.
And now when I start a network game, right after the DNAS check it's "now loading..." forever.

Can anyone please help me out?
I missed playing this in Europe, because the official servers were shut down that fast (I bought both European discs ages ago too).

As proof I'm showing here my 2 Japanese PS2 discs including timestamp.

Help would be very appreciated.

EDIT: After a few minutes it showed me a message, but it's Japanese :(

Anyone has any clue what that means?

EDIT: nvm, there must have been a typo w/ the DNS server address. I now reached the login screen.

Welcome aboard! I recently just set up my PS2 to play again, so if you have any questions, let me know. (Of course, there's tons of great people here to ask for help as well). I noticed you said you're playing a PS2 Slim, your load times will likely be much slower than others.

Yes, it's slower, but just a few seconds.
It works great though.
I need another memory card to play Part 2 (all my PS2 memory cards are full).

What I wonder is can I 100% the episodes online?
It seems it only counts the first play through regarding events?
Or do the events only count when you make it through?
Yesterday I played through Hellfire and I used the card key and the silver key, but my stats say that I haven't done so (we died at the boss).
For "The Hive" it's the same. I went to the roof and B2F, but these hasn't been checked off yet.
