I had this thread on vch for about two weeks now and have posted about it in the Monster Hunter general here, but now that vch has devolved into shitposting now that it's shutting down I think it's time for it to come here. I'm aware that there's a Monster Hunter general, but I feel that this will de-rail that thread. If there ends up being a similar thread on 8kun about this, just know that it isn't me. In this thread, my hope is that it remains focused on Freedom Unite and Portable 3rd.
>Monster Hunter on the PSP? I don't have one of those!
Fortunately, PSP emulation is fantastic, being able to run easily even on smartphones. With a little know-how, you should also be able to get multiplayer working.
>So what do I need then?
All you need is a computer, PPSSPP, the necessary ISOs, access to your router, and a gamepad preferably.
>Why Freedom Unite and Portable 3rd?
Both these games are the easiest to run and configure for multiplayer. In regards to Portable 3rd, it only has a partial English translation as it was never released outside of Japan. It's the one recommended for beginning the franchise with even if you can't read it all as its a little less clunky, far prettier, and has some quality of life changes to make organization and management easier. If you do start with this and can't read Japanese, though, you will be wanting to check the wiki for and asking for help in this thread to explain certain things.
A more detailed explanation is at https://docs.google.com/document/d/1FAeZ83cX7HCiyNvRYGvlzYmOMVEXDxRMkQp5HM5YlG4/pub,
just ignore the stuff about coldbird. Here's a more compressed explanation:
The default settings in the most recent release of PPSSPP should be enough, but just make sure that you have networking enabled, the ad hoc server is myneighborsushicat.com
, port offset is zero, and that the virtual MAC address has been randomized, which you can do by clicking on it a few times. PPSSPP should also have a firewall exemption.
The more challenging aspect is that you will most likely have to configure your router for the online component to work, but it's still fairly easy to get working The game relies on a peer-to-peer network; the ad hoc server works similarly to a torrent tracker, in that it merely facilitates these connections.You'll have to log into your router, which can be done by putting 192.168.1.1 into your browser. You'll want to either enable DMZ, which I don't know about so don't ask me, or forward UDP port 10000 and TCP ports 20001 to 20004 to whatever internal IP address is assigned to your computer/smartphone.
