You want to set up your PC to host Battlefront for PS2? I don't think that can be done. If you want to host games for PS2, I think you have to do it through the PS2. I could be wrong though. I've never heard of anything what you are saying. Also I don't have a PS2.

As said above, its impossible... unless there's some form of internet adaptor out there for PC - PS2 Internet connection.

Hmm...I wonder.

Linux is (was) available for the PS2, and Linux being a very good choice of OS for servers...It might be possible, but then again, you probably won't even try...

Ya, Linux might work... You could just check the game manual (Always check the Manual) If it ain'y in the manual, just give up- It probably might mess up your computer. Yeah, i know its annoying. :nodding:

When it is complete click on the start button on your task bar. Then click on programs --> Lucas Arts --> Star Wars Battlefront --> Star Wars Battlefront PS2 Server This will bring up the server interface Type in your session name ( example: -=SITHLORDS=- ) Type a password if you do not want others that you have not giving the password to to login to the server. Slide the slider bar next to "Max Number Players:" to the left or right depeding on how many players you want to allow ( depending on or internet connection should determine the number of players you set.) Slide the slider bar next to "AI Units Per Team:" to the left or the right depending on how many bots you want per team. Slide the slider bar next to "Min Players to Start:" to the left or the right depending on how many players have to be on the server for the game to start a round. Heros: On or Off --> This is set to on if you want Luke and Darth to play as Non playable characters. ( they just run around killing people and no one can play them besides the AI) Set it ot Off if you do not want them to play ( this is set to OFF by default) Aim Assist: On or Off --> Something like auto AIM for the players Team Damage: On or Off --> On means you can kill your teammates.
