Sony has terminated DNAS

Postby AnthonyBF2 » Tue Apr 05, 2016 4:03 am

Just a head's up, any users who still play SWBF2 or SWBF1 online for PS2 are going to encounter issues.

The GameMaster service has been hosting those games for PS2 since Gamespy ended, but now without DNAS players cannot reach master server. I think the GameMaster devs are working on a fake DNAS server (the same way they imitated Gamespy)

Information regarding DNAS termination and possible fixes and ideas:

Supposedly, Phobos and I have made a patch for both games to bypass DNAS but at the time it's only been tested on emulators. Neither of us have the resources or time and effort to actually mod the console.

Also - if anyone has the original SWBF1 PS2 patch on their memory card, we need it over at SWBFgamers. I am not sure what is the deal with as I don't play SWBF1 but it seems really important but also very rare. It's about 1MB on the memory card, and you can extract it by getting a USB-to-PS2 memory card reader.

Does this affect people who use the GameMaster PC patch?

DNAS is only for the Sony PS2 system. It doesn't harm PC games in any way.
