    Loading GC files over your LAN via PSO

    Note: This Tutorial is a bit outdated in that many of the applications listed or referenced below now have been updated with new versions or replaced, however, it is still a nice Tutorial to grasp the basics with so we have included it in this section.

    Files needed:

    * PSUL 1.1 - GameCube Code Uploader (c) Titanik/CZN
    * EUR-ACL1.EXE - PC Animal Crossing Loader 1.1
    * EUR-ACL1.DOL - GC Animal Crossing Loader 1.1

    *.*.GCM *.*.iSO - The GameCube image (.iSO / .GCM) You want to play

    Extra Hardware/Software needed:

    PC Ethernet Card, Or Router

    PC Ethernet Cable, Or Crossover cable

    Initial Setup For NIC To Gamecube Method:

    Assuming you have already physically installed the pc network card and drivers head on over to the windows control panel and into "Network and Dial-Up Connections". Once there highlight the network card you just installed and choose properties.

    After the properties dialog box appears highlight TCP/IP and then click on the properties button. Now you will be able to choose and have windows auto assign the IP address, DNS, and gateway for the NIC but you will need to choose "use the following ip address" and enter in for the Ip address and for the subnet. Don't worry about the gateway or DNS and just Click Ok.

    Now connect one end of the crossover cable to the Gamecube Broadband adapter and the other end to your newly configured network card.

    Proceed to the PSO network configuration.

    Initial Setup for Router to GameCube Method:

    Using a router can be either tricky or painless depending on the type you have. I will use a Linksys router (befsx41) for this tutorial. To get into the router configuration menu open up your browser of choice and type into the address bar.

    You will be prompted for a username and password. If you have never done this before the default is admin/admin. Once in there click on the advanced tab and then DMZ Host. Choose "enable" and after that choose "specify and Ip address behind DMZ host".

    Enter in and hit apply then reboot your computer. After that is done connect one end of your ethernet cable to the DMZ port of the router and the other end to the Gamecube Broadband adapter. Proceed to the PSO network configuration.

    Initial Set-Up For Phantasy Star On-Line:

    Fire up your copy of Phantasy Star Online and head on over the to options menu. Choose network option, provider option, and then yes to go into the network configuration screen. When you are at the configuration screen select network setup and choose "manualy set an IP address". Press the next button and enter for the IP address, for the subnet mask, for the default gateway, and finally for primary DNS. After entering in the info press next and save your settings to memory card.

    **If you already have played this game online then this next step is not needed, however if you have not you will need to do this otherwise PSO will annoy you everytime you try to connect for user registration data.**

    Saving Hunter Guild Information:

    Lets assume you have all the files needed for this tutorial as well as your games and or homebrew apps in the following directory (c:\gc)
    Open up a windows command Prompt by typing cmd.exe in the run box. To change into the directory type "cd gc" and press enter. Next type
    "psul.exe -s" and you should see the following.

    Now on PSO choose the Online Game option at the title screen. Follow the onscreen directions and create your character. After you have created your character and saved it to the mem card and the game asks if you agree to the user terms say yes. The game will begin to load and you will see a warp hole type screen. At this point the game is initializing the Gamecube BBA for connection and you should pay attention to your command prompt screen to verify you have received the following message.

    If you saw the following everything is setup and ready to go. If not start this tutorial over and bang your head on the desk.

    To Upload A GameCube Game Or Homebrew Application:

    Lets assume you have all the files needed for this tutorial as well as your games and or homebrew apps in the following directory (c:\gc)
    Open up 2 command prompt windows by typing cmd.exe in the run box. Go into the directory where all the files are by typing "cd gc" and press enter. In the first command prompt window type "psul.exe eur-acl1.dol" and press enter. By doing this the loader will be sent to the Gamecube once the connection has been made. In the second command prompt window type "eur-acl1.exe eur-acgc.gcm" and press enter. This will send the game/homebrew iso to the Gamecube after you have selected the boot method on the loader screen and pressed start.

    After putting both the loader and iso/gcm in standby mode boot up your Gamecube with PSO in. At the title screen choose Online game and agree to their terms of service. Again you will see the warp hole screen and the bba will once again initialize. At this point the loader will be sent to your Gamecube and wait for you to make your selection. Select between boot mode A or B by pressing right or left on the controller d-pad. Use boot method A for animal crossing and boot method B for anything else.

    On some sytems the entire game will load in 1 minute and on other systems this process may take several minutes! Please be patient, As long as dots are filling the command prompt screen then Animal Crossing is loading.

    If you are having problems with hanging, or the console is filling up with X's and or transfer rate is very slow, try using the delay switch to slow down transfer rate from PC. To delay usage at the command prompt type: "eur-acl1.exe eur-acgc.gcm -d10 -f16" Delays 10ms every 16 packets.

    If no -f switch is given the frequency of delay will default to every one packet which is far slower and perhaps no more reliable that of a given frequency value. Experiment with different values for both to find the best option that works best for your current set up.
