If you would like to play MGO2, keep on reading!GHzGangster wrote:A Brief Introduction
SaveMGO was a community initially created to petition for the revival of the original Metal Gear Online, from MGS3.
It was quickly realized that a petition would not bring the game back, so we took matters into our own hands.
After a push from an individual (Zak/The_Fog), MrGame and GHzGangster were able to interact with, and craft our own server for the since 5 year old game.
Some games and time passed and Wtfareuthinking, Droogie, and GHz eventually started to work on Metal Gear Online 2, from MGS4.
While we experienced different issues, we were able to pull through and create our own private server for MGO2 as well.
Although development on MGO1 has slowed, development on MGO2 is rapid and ongoing.
In addition to reviving these two games, we did plan on preserving MGO3, but it sucks. - trump
Useful Terms/Notes For Noobs:
- OFW: "Official Firmware," firmware distributed on PS3 consoles by Sony.
- CFW: "Custom Firmware," firmware created by hackers by modifying Official Firmware.
"To Jailbreak" or "to install CFW," means to install custom firmware on your PS3, thus "jailbreaking" the console.
"MGO2R" stands for "Metal Gear Online 2 Revival," the Revival server has been public since 7/11/14.
Where To Start:
If you're interested in playing MGO2R you will require three things. Access to a computer, a USB stick, and most importantly, a Playstation 3 console. It was formally required that the console be jailbroken, but no longer. But if you're still interested in obtaining a jailbroken console, there are three ways to go about it.
Where To Start: (Cont.)
If you currently own a Playstation 3 console, of any kind, you will also be able to play on the MGO2R server. Please take a look at the OFW tutorials here:
