|Hi Snake fans. I'm serving as a host in REX (NTSC-U) right now if anyone happens to be here.
I'm running the OG disc off of my PS2 Slim console connected to my router with a DSL cable.
I have no idea how good my connection is.
I did a test run earlier. One person connected with me, said "OI", I think we killed each other with grenades, it was amazing. Then about 5 minutes later I got an unstable connection warning, the action paused and the player was gone with a poof of the brown town dust.
I'm going to leave the game running for a few hours hoping someone can connect and possibly give feedback if my setup is a capable host or a crapable roast.
I want to be connecting pretty frequently and really hope to play with others. This was my favorite online game back in the day but I never had enough time to play it as much as I wanted to.
I'm going to try using OPL and my USB HDD to run the game instead of off the disc to see if that makes a difference. My dusty old PS2 fan and disc spinner are making some loud noises at the moment.
I'd be glad to sync up with some convenient times to play if anyone out there happens to know better.
