I accidentally did it again. Made a room and turned it off at the waiting room. Sad Hopefully this glitch will be fixed someday.

I think the main issue here is that it's generally not a good practice to shutdown a console while connected to a server in an online game. Especially inside a game room, particularly if you're the host Cheesy lol. It's nothing to worry about. I think several other players have run into the same issue.

With the way the revival server currently works, if you shutdown your PS2 while hosting a game room, a "hollow" entry for your game room and yourself in its player list will persist in the lobby. This is because your player session and game room are still considered to be "open" in the server's database.

If you turn your PS2 back on and login afterwards, a check is performed to ensure you don't already have an open session. If it detects an old session for you that's still open, it'll close out the old session and remove you from any game rooms you were previously showing up as being inside. It doesn't currently close down game rooms you were hosting, though. The end result are those rooms you formely hosted that show up with 0/8 players in them. When the server restarts at 4:30 AM PST every night, those "hollow" rooms should get closed down automatically.

Anyway, if you close your game rooms properly, by leaving them, they'll stop appearing in the lobby. Host migration also works. So if multiple players are in a room and the host leaves (by quitting the room - not by shutting down their PS2 inside the room), hosting duties will migrate to another player.

I'm starting to look into a means of detecting suddenly lost player connections on the server-side and updating player/room listings accordingly. If it pans out, it should resolve all these hollow player/room problems and improve the accuracy of the website prototype discussed in another thread Smiley.

Guys I have MGS3 Subsistence (which had an online portion) could that work for this or would I have to go about buying the PS2 network start-up disc?

You don't need the start up disc. I did it with Jak-X.

Aaah. Just wanted to make sure because I didn't see Subsistence on the list of games needed but I guess it doesn't matter just so long as it has a online capability.  Shocked

Alrighty, so I got my PS2 3 days ago and I'm going to order TMB/TMBO on Wednesday.

So far I've done up to step 8 and also DMZ'd my PS2.

Almost there....

You'll want to direct your anger/threats to Kilrahi, as he is the one that wrote that up. I do however look forward to seeing you on the server though.

i'll kill everyone!!!!! blaaarrragahgggaaahhhh!!!

I've been doing a lot of catch up reading...so you guys don't seem to do a lot of team games anymore? seems more like ffa w/relics...and is that last man standing or kills or what now?

I recently went out and bought a splitter so I can use my elgato capture card to record vids again...

I just had surgery so I'm off from work these next 4 days, but will be returning to work nights starting Monday 4pm-1200am EST and I usually game from 1230-230 most nights - not sure what you guys schedules are like, but i'm definitely looking forward to some games soon

We try for Wed night and Sat nights. I think 10-11PM EST (start time), but I'll let Roadie chime in just to be sure. Oh, we do LMS, but the relic games are just mostly for fun. I'd still like to do some PTK, collector and manhunt as well.

Hi All,

New to the forum, was introduced to it and the TM Black Online server from Kotaku.  I just got setup today and thought id do a setup video to supplement these instructions.  I also show myself getting my ass handed to me by one of the admins.  Check it out:

Welcome to TMA. That's some fine work to put up an instruction video, and then proceed to play the game with one many TMBO's best veterans. Good to see you're enjoying the game.

Also another thanks shouting out TMA as a site as well. We have grown a little smaller but, overlooking how things were it should be fine to get some more eyes in here.

Who knows. More interest would mean it might make Sony reconsider. 

And I woke up.....
