    I'm currently having an issue with it working properly on PS2. Works fine on pcsx2 but I'm not going to release it in it's current state.
  4. Something else that be interesting if you included a way to create 24 player room.


    Very cool stuff my friend, keep up the great work. Do you think it might be possible to change map's game mode, now tjat I think of it? Even if only to Suppression, I imagine adding objectives and game logic is no easy feat.

    Not with the patch. I'm too limited to alter that much code.

    UPDATE: New patch released in the original post. It now includes clan tags on LAN.

    How to use a clan tag:
    1. The tag is inserted when creating your name at the login screen for LAN.
    2. Create your name like this: [TAG]name
    Example: [CC]Harry62
    The game will seperate the clan tag and name when joining a room.

    That is a lot to ask for since the game suffers from massive lag on x link

    No, It wouldn't be interesting.

    It would be very interesting, although it's obvious the community would not take to it. Not to mention it would take 24 people to test it all using the same test patch, then additional testing to eliminate bugs. In other words I'm not going to look in to it.

    Just play S-3, Con, or CA if you want that many people playing on one map.
    It is especially retarded coming from a guy quoted as saying S-2 was the worst Socom on the PS2.
    I would think most S-2 fans would find it insulting. I know I do.
    There's some other shit I find insulting and disgusting as well, but i'll try to give the benefit of the doubt.

  12. Don't really believe xlink is to be blame. Lot of things that could be going wrong that ain't xlink fault. More of common problems I see is people using WiFi may run in some very bad interference. Different programs on computer could eat up lot of CPU usage and cause random pikes with people ping. Example just Windows doing background updating could cause this problem. If that happens it can also cause people to get booted with way game networking works.
  13. Yea I do believe SOCOM 2 is worse SOCOM game on PS2, but that just my opinion. I do still play SOCOM 2 too. Also no public know way to play Confrontation anymore and if someone don't like idea of 24 person room they could just simply not join it.

    Thanks Harry, we really appreciate what you're doing here!

    Also, one quick question. Do I have to boot the .elf every time I want to run with your patch? I've noticed at times it goes back to r0001 if I do not run your .elf before booting up SOCOM II

    You have to boot the patch every time.

    alright, thank you. JUst a thought, is there any way to embed this into the .zdb file on the memory card?

    My input after playing with patch today:

    There were some serious connectivity issues, the room was booting people left and right and I also had a hard time staying in game, the "You have been disconnected" pop up booted me out repeatedly. I tried making the game in a non arena and an arena setting. At first we thought that it may have been someone booting but after the arena and we had legit players in there it continued.

    The clan tag feature is buggy (for the better in my case). I had my name saved in my loadout (LordZhangFei). It's too long to include a clan tag in my actual name because there is a character limit (12). So I inputed [3-K]LordZhang and long behold when I joined a room it was actually exactly how I wanted it [3-K] LordZhangFei. I thought it was weird and when I went to log back in due to getting booted I typed my name as [3-K] only. Again, when I joined a room my name was [3-K] LordZhangFei. So, what it actually does, is it takes the clan tag you insert, in my case [3-K], and applies it as your clan tag and uses the name you have saved to your memory card as your Socom name.

    The rank features showed up as chopsticks but I was unable to get a game going long enough to try to see if the algorithm worked.

    Also, worst problem of all. It made Crossroads a suppression map and even took out the bomb. Not sure why or how, but I imagine the all maps respawn coding that was inserted is messing with the pre determined loadout of each map.

    The booting issue seemed to be the most frustrating but I am confident you will get it bro!

    Thanks so much for the detailed bug list. I will release an update later today to repair some of the issues. Just check back to this thread.

    The booting issue is most likely xlink. I have not altered any of the network code via the patch. My assumption is your connection mixed with the terrible xlink connection caused the booting issues. I have a 30/5 MBps connection myself which is way more than enough to play this game but I have yet to finish a full game on xlink without getting booted and this is without a patch. The only way to truly test connectivity issues is over LAN on your own network.

    The clan tag is a work in progress. Currently the only way to extract the clan tag and name is from a pointer to the saved name in memory. Keep your eyes on this thread as the next update may or may not repair the clan tag issues.

    I have corrected the respawn function so maps outside of the respawn mode keep their original game mode during non-respawn games.

    UPDATE: Patch r0005 v0.4.2 is now available in the first post.

    It includes:
    - Revamped clan tag function. Seems to work fine for me now.
    - Creating patched game passwords now requires the "@" symbol instead of the "!" symbol at the beginning of the password. The older patches will not be able to join new patched games.
    - Increased the text limits to accommodate clan tags and player names.
