Networking + USB flash drive
Networking + USB flash drive –
I got the flash drive to play one game (after formatting and using USBUtil V2.00). However, I have another game that I can't get to work as an iso or as an installed game. It just goes from the colored screens to a black screen. So I decided to try to network my PC to the console via my router. I can't get it work. I don't know if I haven't set things up right or what. I followed several tutorial videos on OPL networking, none of which made it where my OPL displays Front Mission 5 English Patched on my Network Games area. I forwarded a port in my router too. In fact, I can't get the game that works off the USB to show up in the network games folder either. Does it have be on the C: drive or can it be on my F: drive?
I can ping other computers on my network (or at least the one other PC on the network). I "shared" the folder. I punched in all the IP information correctly into OPL v0.8. Someone mentioned that they play the game with OPL 0.9, but I would assume 0.8 works too?
Is it possibly b/c I haven't formatted a partition on my computer to FAT32? I had read that it wasn't necessary to do so anymore? Is there a way to use the correctly formatted USB thumb drive via my computer since the game doesn't load up right via the PS2 USB connection as I've read that networked games work sometimes when the game doesn't work via the USB connection? (Basically using the thumb drive as a mini-HD?)
I'm not a complete noob to modding, just to PS2 modding.
PC: Windows 7 Home
USB: Formatted correctly - played Transformers Tatakai off of it using installer
Thank you for any help!
If you play over Network you donīt need FAT32, NTFS is supported....
You have to post more details (your "share" name, how you share it, your PS2 config in "Network"), cause many said they make all correct and then there was a mistake in IPīs......
No, you can take a folder that you "share" in any Drive......
Does it have be on the C: drive or can it be on my F: drive?
Look the link below, itīs a novice-tut, scroll down to "Windows 7 – Crossover Cable Setup" and look if you have in point "4." the settings....

First, you don't need port forwarding, as you PS2, Router and PC are in the same network. Port forwarding is when you access your local/home network from the outside (internet). Then your router is the single access point (entry point), and port forwarding is used to forward any traffic to the network computer you want.
Then, why do you use port 475 ? Samba/CIFS is used to operate on port 445 or 139. Try with these one.
Use the latest revision 618 here:
http://psx-scene.com/forums/f150/mis...tml#post955507 (Missing OPL feature, Developers read please.)
With this revision, you can repeat connection test so it is far more easier to try to setup your configuration.
So, what you should do, is changing the port to either 445 or 139. Click "Reconnect" for each changes. Put an empty share name, so that OPL will list you the shares it found.
If there is an error, OPL will display a message, with an error code.
For each try, put the description of what setup you tested and the corresponding error code here.
Thank you for the help! It works now that I installed the new one. I originally tried the 445 and it didn't work with the v0.8 (neither did 475). I was forward 475 so that it wasn't the "typical" thing. I just wanted to protect myself from unwanted PC visitors if they ever stumbled across this thread.. I think the v0.8 just didn't agree with my PC b/c the new version works like a charm. Thanks! I also removed the port forwarding.
Again, THANK YOU!!!
