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.
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.
