Madden NFL 2003 PlayStation 2 (2002) (North America) Online Setup Guide v1.0 [August 26, 2002] written by Anthony Charles Ambrose (ACA) <[email protected]> Document ©2002. All Rights Reserved. Full legal notice at end. Check out: < http://www.timefall.com > TimeSplitters 2 Network (GCN, PS2, XBX) -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- Introduction -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- This is an alternative, for those people who want to go online with Madden NFL 2003, yet they do not want to pay (or wait) for Sony's adaptor. This will only work with the PlayStation 2 console, so don't go trying it with your GameCube or Xbox. In addition, I am writing this for the NORTH AMERICAN version. If you happen to get a version other than that, this might not work. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- Requirements -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- - Linksys 10/100TX USB Ethernet Adapter - cable modem - ethernet cable - USB cable to connect adapter to PS2 - Sony PS2 Memory Card (400KB Free) - Sony PS2 System - Sony PS2 Madden NFL 2003 Game - USB Keyboard for PS2 (recommended, although not entirely needed) -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- Diagram: How To Set It Up -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- You'll need to hook your ethernet adaptor up to your cable modem with an ethernet cable, before you can do anything. Next, use your USB cable to hook the ethernet adaptor up to your PS2. This is not complicated, as long as your cables are long enough. Make sure the cables you buy can reach sufficiently: you don't want the cables to tear or pull the adaptor or PlayStation 2 apart. Here is a useful diagram: +-------+ +--------+ +--------+ | Cable +--ethernet--+Ethernet| USB | Sony | | Modem | cable |Adaptor +--cable---+ PS2 | +-------+ +--------+ +--------+ -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- Getting Online -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- - Turn on Madden NFL 2003 - Select Features, Online - Create a new account - Load, dark blue screen appears - Add new settings - Proceed until it asks to select hardware - Select the Linksis 10/100TX USB Ethernet Adapter - Proceed until it asks for a password - If you need one to connect, select 'yes'--chances are you can just press 'no' - Your next two choices need to be 'auto' - It's all set up, so quit - Now go online, through Features, Online - Make a profile, register it online - Begin a game, making sure all goes well - Those are all the steps you must complete, in order. Do that exactly, and you will have no problems. I take NO RESPONSIBILITY if you screw something up, so work on this at your own risk. - There is a chance that you may not be able to get online, due to any possible reason, including your ISP not being compatible. I will not be held responsible for that, either, so check with your ISP before you go out and spend money on these items. - If you have problems with this, do not e-mail me. If you e-mail me about going online with any question, I will ban you forever. Ask at the message boards for help, but do not e-mail me. - If you are having problems finding the right material, print this document out and bring it to Best Buy, Radio Shack, or another similiar place. They should be able to hook you up with the right components. It might be pricey, but this is the only alternative to getting online with Madden NFL 2003. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- Copyright 2002 Anthony Charles Ambrose (ACA) [email protected] All rights reserved This document was created and maintained by ACA, its author.
