I got splitscreen to work online for BF2
« on: March 06, 2020, 03:39:03 PM »
For Battlefront 2 on PS2, we can now play splitscreen online!

How it works:

You plug two controllers into your PS2. You select splitscreen as you normally would. Once both players have chosen their profile, the main player presses start, as usual. Now this is where the mod happens. Instead of jumping to the instant action menu, it instead jumps to the "LAN or Internet" menu. From there, the main player will connect online and pick a server, as usual.

Once it loads, there will be splitscreen with two players, but you will be online!

Both players can play just fine but there are some bugs:
- Player 2 does not have a name.
- Player 2 does not appear in the player list.
- Player 2 does not appear in the server manager.
- Both player 1 and player 2 cannot see "admin" messages.

Here are some screenshots:

I tried the same mod for Battlefront 1 but it does not work. Player 1 can play normally but player 2 gets hung at the opening satellite shot.

I would like for an admin to leave a comment here and say if it would be okay for me to share the download link for the ISO.

That sounds pretty cool!

I'm no admin, but it might be easier and less sketchy to provide an SHA1/MD5 for the needed base ISO and an xdelta patch.

Cool but luckily I have two seperate PS2's. That'd be annoying to have someone screen-looking to find out where you are lel

I used the mod and I noticed whenever someone joins it crashes them when you have splitscreen but it doesn't crash those who already joined, even when the next map loads. I know this cause I got rid of splitscreen and the same people who tried to join came back but they didn't crash.

I tested it with other players without a problem. Something else is messed up on your end.

I found a new glitch, if you someone joins in as soon as player 2 does, you get control of whoever just joined lol. It happened once but it would require having a full server for it to even be possible.
