I have a vid on youtube how to setup the dns # using the network startup disc that comes with purchase of network adapter *fat ps2* or bundled with the *slim* ps2 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zQ_YnBdJ4rM
thats basically all that has to be done to get online for ps2 other than pluging in the lan cable to your router/cable modem/dsl box to the port on the back of the ps2. what ever the client has. please note currently it only works in usa. there are no dnas servers for eu or japan right now.

You can use the "hosts" option to get SWBFSpy Working. Check it here: http://www.swbfgamers.com/index.php?topic=10542.0

Is there a tutorial somewhere to teach me how to get this working? I want to play battlefront 2 online

Star Wars Battlefront Multiplayer over the Internet no longer uses GameSpy as a host.
Instead it uses GameMaster. All you have to do is download a new Battlefront exe and put it into a specific folder.

What folder, you ask? Easy! Your Battlefront game is in your LucasArts folder.
C:\ProgramFiles\LucasArts\Star Wars Battlefront II\GameData
GameData! That's the folder! Move your new exe into there.

Where do you get this new exe? Right here at SWBFgamers.com

Thanks. But it tells me I'm missing binkw32.dll from my computer. How do I fix that? I have the steam version of the game if that makes any difference.

Yeah, ur game is located here:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Star Wars Battlefront II\

Go to the GameData folder and replace the old exe for the one u just downloaded

I got it. Sometimes I'm dumb when it comes to things like this. I have to say, it's a very dead community. No one seems to be playing. Where is the biggest community at? I've only ever played game ranger and there are always people on there. So, I'm guessing that's where most people are. Game Ranger is awesome, I just hate that no one seems to like playing hero assault vanilla.. sighh. I miss the ps2 days.

Dont worry, we're here to help people get the patch working
Right now people arent online cause many of them dont know about SWBFSpy, so we need to tell them about the new masterserver.

Self hosted servers should work on the new Master server as long as they have updated their game with the lasted Client patch.

They will need to do portforwarding as usual though.

I have updated the thread so that nobody confuses the files (I've had several emails from people who had mistakenly installed the server file)

Also, Klexmer (old friend of mine) as been so kind to send me the french file.
I'm gonna attach it here, and add it to the main post

Those who have this issue, make sure ur game is in the same language as the exe...
I've updated once again the main post

Would it be correct to assume that I should uninstall GameShare/GameMaster before installing SWBFspy for either Battlefront game?

There's no need to "unistall" anything.
Gameshare was just a patch for the game so that it would redirect to the new masterserver, so all u gotta do is download the new exes and replace them

Alright. Thank you :)

EDIT: Autoinstaller works like a charm. Well done!

Just got it working, looks like no one online atm but functions like a charm. That said, Gameranger is no longer functioning. It opens and lists the servers as it should, but when I attempt to join a game it opens SWBFII then gives me the "busy" pop up for 15 seconds-ish then says "could not connect". Now I don't really like gameranger to be honest, but since SWBFspy's servers seem empty for now, its more or less my only option. Please tell me how to either revert my patched copy of battlefront II to normal, or tell me how to change it to allow me to use GR, if possible.
