N00b and with toubles...

Post  Ziggout on Wed Sep 16, 2009 12:41 pm

Im currently deployed to afghanistan and our internet connection is 1mb DL split between 40+ people (just so you know)

i was forced to DL PSO PC V2 and wanted to run it lan so a bunch of us can play together. ihad to do the direct DL that was split into 11 or so parts. it claimed it was Ives (i doubt it was) i CAN install and play on my laptop and runn the server on another BUT, i cant seem to get the IP patch to work. i also can seem to get it installed on any of my buddy's computers. any help would be greatly appreciated.

So, you guys are just trying to play this on a network? With just each other? Well to play with other people you have to go online, and connect to a server. Are you using the Private PSO Ship Software?

http://schtserv.com/download.php

Down at the very bottom of the page for Version 2. PPSO Software is quite old, and a bit buggy. You may be better off just playing on the actual SCHTserver itself. You need a shipgate in order to host a ship for you guys to play on. If you can't host one yourself, you may just have to connect to the actual SCHTserver itself. I don't know if you can though. Hasn't the military been limiting internet usage for the soldiers? I've heard they've blocked some things like Myspace and such supposedly due to bandwidth issues, but I'm not certain how far that goes, especially considering you're posting here now anyways.

Also, you're Airborne? Oh boy, hardcore hahah. Sounds interesting. My brother is getting deployed to Afgan sometime next year. He's National Guard at the moment, but has already decided to go active this year.

Ahem, anyways.. If there's anything important I've missed, I'm sure Ives will address that later on today in his own post.

Also, thank you for choosing to join the military, and keeping the battles away from our soil to keep us and our freedom safe at home. I really do appreciate it. Always a pleasure to meet a soldier.

maby the termonology is a lil off. I was lead to belive a "Lan server" was used in replace of the online server. My second deployment we bought a lan server from Blizzard so we could play WoW in Iraq. only about $3k. or is the PSO version it just a "socket" of the primarey online server?

A server is a server. Are you trying to play on the main server by connecting to gsproduc.ath.cx, or are you trying to host a private server that only you can connect to?

im trying to host my own server because of how little bandwith we have out here.
the plan is to host my own lan server and have my buddies connect to it over an isolated network. think diablo or starcraft ( i know blizzard does it best) i understand diablo is more of an ADhoc. thats why i have 1 computer designated for server duty. am i just misunderstanding or are my hopes and dreams misguided?
also which folder does the IP Patcher need to be in to connect to a diffrent server IP?

pPSOs works, just not very well. Ippatch.exe must be in the same folder as pso.exe to work. You can also modify your HOSTS file.

Add a line to redirect gsproduc.ath.cx to the IP of your server instead of patching the exe to connect somewhere else.

It should be 192.168.1.113. You don't use leading zeroes. You also leave the "register to" box blank, and once you click "start server", you need to run the shipgate executable.
