Resident Evil Outbreak
- How is the gameplay?
The game play is very similar to classic RE games, such as Resident Evil 2 and 3.
The player chooses a scenario, difficulty level, and a character. The difficulty level is tied to what enemies and items the player encounters as they progress through the scenario.
Rather than using USB headphones or a computer keyboard, players use a command "ad-lib" system which consists of ten key command phrases, utilized by manipulating the right analog stick on the PlayStation 2 controller and a context sensitive button. The player can select and request items from their teammate's inventory, or ask the teammate themselves to use the item in question.
- How do I play online?
You need a patched (look up, 'DNAS patch' in Google) Japanese Biohazard Outbreak File #2 ISO.
You can either use BASARA's Guide for PS2 (http://obsrv.org/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=381) or Jchaps's guide for emulators (http://obsrv.org/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=388). Both need activated accounts on OBsvr forum.
Alternatively you can use my already configured CAPCOM Netfile
It includes a memory card ready to use in PCSX2 and as a separate file (I assume you know how to manage memory cards)
- I decided to play with an emulator, what else do I need?
You need WinPcap (http://www.winpcap.org/) and a version of PCSX2. I personally recommend the 5731 SVN version since it's the most stable version and it is also compatible with the network plugin.
You also need other basic shit like the BIOS that I'm not going to explain here. (I assume you know about emulation).
When Configuring the DEV9, set it to Gigaherz (the network plugin) and select your Ethernet card.
Wireless connections may be not compatible.
