    Also does anyone know how to do this with Kai 7.4.18 beta? The configure options are different then the ones here.

    Hello people, recently I wanted to play Gran Turismo 4 online with XLink Kai. But the problem is, the picture is (maybe) removed. Nah, I found an URL for the exact same settings in the first post, but with images as well!

    http://www.teamxlink.co.uk/wiki/doku.php?id=evo7:ps2_manual_config

    maybe useful for you :)

    (maybe my post is a little bit outdated?)

    Oh yeah, and I want to ask:

    " (F) Exit out of the Options Menu and SAVE YOUR GAME!!! Re-start your PS2, and again make sure your CAT-5 cable is connected to both your PS2 network adapter and your router. "

    What is this means? It means that my PS2 must connected to the Computer? or the Router?

    Thanks,
    Lukemorron

    That means connect the CAT5 cable from your PS2 to your router.

    Does this work with a wireless laptop instead of a wired PC? Also is there any reason why this is in the drifting forum? Shouldn't it be in the main forum?

    Hoo I see, thanks Thiele :) !

    Err I think it works on wireless pc, I read about it in the Team XLink's site. Maybe a lot of people use Xlink Kai for drifting, because drifting is much fun when you do it in LAN / Online?

    Come see me join the PS2 Online Gaming Discord https://discord.gg/cjDrA4y

    So in Kai Xlink supposed to use private arena er what ? The host has to go to WFC screen lastly ?

    I even had it work in XBSLink (far more complex) but guy was so far out the game was a slideshow

    I also made Xlink work much better recently ! I didn't realize that:



    Public Port should be specified , entered in the config page !



    And unblocked in your gateway IP page (just for good measure) . Joined two New Zealanders in Timesplitters 2 effortlessly

    I wish to see the same for Gran Turismo 4 !!!

    So I see that GT4 is a special case , not just default net config , you should dedicate a net config for it , from it

    EDIT: Wow . Just enable Use DHCP in the configurator



    Primary DNS will be 192.168.0.1 (should it matter)

    Finally run kaiEngine.exe I guess making private arena in the GT4 arena can help

    The host may go to waiting for connection screen first , did this numerous times

    In the GT4 options Host Yes Players 2 Traffic Light , head to LAN>waiting for connection screen then tell your buddy to head there too , the menu should proceed then must not press anything



    PROFIT =} I even got to host for two others who were far far

    lol don't call me no emulator ! Only the real thing for me

    Anyone else reading this who'd rather emulate it's harder really

    Full on six player yawl should be fairly close . The further out the more slowdown the more need for speed

    I might get a Network Adapter just for this. Does anyone know if the program(s) work with Windows 8?
