Monster Hunter PS2: Online Revival Possible

Post#1 » Thu Apr 04, 2019 10:36 pm

I was talking with no23/the_fog (the guy who helped bring back online PS2 games such as Resident Evil Outbreak and Twisted Metal Black) and he said that he developed a mostly functional test server for the original Monster Hunter on PS2 (a personal favorite of mine) but never finished/released it.

When asked if the project would ever resume development, he said it could happen if there was enough interest in it. So we created a survey to help gauge interest. If you're interested in playing this game online, speak up! Now's your chance!

I believe the old deathless site now redirects to a rocketchat that he created.

This is the one PS2 game I wish I could have played online back in the day. Now if only someone could bring back Monster Hunter Tri on the Wii...

I'm with ya, Tri is great. There's 3 Ultimate of course which is better in most ways, but the online just wasn't as good as Tri.

Just an update on the project, things are looking promising. We've gotten past the point of "Should we do it" and have gotten to the point of "What do we do next?". I'll keep updating this thread as things happen.

Yep, Monster Hunter is a poor man's game. Because once you buy it, you never need to spend money on another game again! :lol:

Any updates ReaderRagfish? I only ask because you mentioned in the Area 51 thread "... we've been testing/debugging a Monster Hunter server and it's a ton of fun". So it works to some degree?
