Metal Gear Online
Damien! I figured out how to create games. I just looked through Gamefags to shed some light on it and found some pretty good answers. Two of the more informative posts were as followed:|
Edit your ip address manually can be an easy thing. First you will see that you have to edit the IP, Netmask(also known as Subnet mask), and then defualt gateway(router).
To find all about this (with windows xp) go to start menu then click on run. Enter "cmd" (w/o quotations) and then you should get the command prompt. Type in "ipconfig/all" (w/o quotations). There should be a list of good stuff to know. Copy the subnet mask into the edit menu and the gateway as well. (ie:Subnet mask on mine is 255.255.255.0 and gateway is 192.168.1.1) For the Ip address, DO NOT COPY THE ONE YOU SEE ON THE COMMAND PROMPT! That is for the computer your on, not the ps2! You have to edit the last three numbers. So due to the gateway ip, i will make my ps2 192.168.1.105 (i add .105 instead of .1). You got to make sure no other computer or whatever is using it. Then move on to the next page, the DNS servers are on the command prompt as well. There should be two numbers, primary and the secondary underneath.
And there you have it. ~dysthymia7
If you have a linksys:
-Log onto Metal Gear Solid 3 online and "log on with detailed options". (You'll need some info from it)
-On your computer, type http://192.168.1.1 into your web browser.
-Enter the log in name (the model number for the router, it says it above the space where you enter it)
-The password is "admin"
-Click on "Basic Setup" -> "Status" -> "DHCP Client List"
-This is a list of all devices connected to the router. There should be a user on the router that is not your computers (for me it was labeled "Host76"). THAT is the PS2's IP address. Copy it down.
-Go back to "Advanced Options" -> "Forwarding
-In MGS3, there is a row labelled "UDP Port No." copy this number down.
-On the bottom there is a section called "Customized Applications", Type that "UDP Port No." in the Ext. Port and Int. Port columns.
-Check off "Protocol UDP"
-Enter the last three digits of the IP code that you copied before.
-Label it "PS2" on the left.
Disconnect from MGS3 and then reconnect and you should have the option to create a game!!
The latter seemed more helpful to me seeing as how I have a Linksys.
