January 5th, 2009 - GameCube - Phantasy Star Online

Broadcast message from user@localhost

Today I bought a Phantasy Star Online Episode 1 & 2 disc, this game is pretty rare and I got it cheaper, almost like any other used GC game. The disc is in good condition, some minor scratches, but it loads smooth and I played for some hours with it ^-^

I tested the PSOLoad method to run GC-Linux Alpha and it worked!. I had to set the ip address of my machine to static ip and the cube has it's own address, thus they need to be on the same segment
  • PC:
  • GC:
After a little reading on the page, I read the NBD and NFS versions of gcLinux may be edited to request an ip address through dhcp, so my logic pointed me to edit the zImage.dol replacing the following text
  • ip=
with this
  • ip=dhcp
I padded with spaces (to respect the binary size), the booted the image with PSOLoad and... it worked !!!. I'm very exited to see it worked.

In both cases (static and dynamic ip) the gamecube was able to serve the webpage
And I made telnet connections to it (after i read the gclinux page and foud out of user and password)
  • telnet 22
