PCSX2 Question
#1
Hello all

I was browsing this forum for a bit but could not find answer to my question. I am guessing the answer is no but I still rather ask you all who are more proficient at this than I am. 

Tiger Woods 2004 PGA Tour: I am looking to play this game with PCSX2 and will attempt to follow all steps to get it set up. Pretty sure I will be successful at doing so. 

Question is: Is this solely a stand alone game on my PC via the emulator or can it also allow for online play with friends? 
I suspect it's a no to online play but have to ask. 

If no, would there be a way to play PS2 games online with friends via PC emulation? 

Thank you in advance gents.

There's a netplay plugin available. Try this guide: https://forums.pcsx2.net/Thread-How-To-P...line-Guide
I think it's compatible with the recent dev build. The only issue is that server for most, if not all, PS2 games are shut down with Gamespy going defunct. However, I think there are homebrew servers that you could play in.

Thanks for info! I have not yet tried this but I did try this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6QfY9z8dd9I

I managed to load the game and play it. 
I managed to load the Net play and HOST a game + JOIN a game

My current issue is how to set up Multi tap so that 4 of us in 3 diff states, NC, NY and NJ,  can play.
I think I have it figured out on next steps but cannot test just yet. 

Can someone confirm if the youtube video is legit and working or if something newer is available? 

Or third, should I just ditch this and follow steps in URL gtgamer468 posted? 

I don't mind either so long as I can play online with my friends.

Update:

I saw this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6QfY9z8dd9I.
Downloaded all the things he mentioned (has links in the first comment of video)
Game loads and plays well.

As for Net Play: We each have to have identical memory cards and settings in PCSX2.

Each one of us loads the game individually. We set up a player and save to memory card.
We all then send the memory cards to the person who will be hosting.
They load the game and load each player to the game, including their own.
He then saves all profiles to just his memory card.

So by this point, the host has 1 memory card but it has all 4 profiles on it.

Host then send us all a copy of his memory card.

At this point, we all have PCSX2 with all same settings, Same memory card that is already preloaded with all of our profiles and Multi Tap is set.

We all join host and can now play multiplayer in Tiger Woods 2004 PGA Tour without any issues at all.

Hope this helps anyone looking to do the same.

Thanks for this forum for existing. I read a lot of great info on here and received help almost immediately.
Will keep an eye out for future developments of PCSX2 and Netplay.

**This was tested only for Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2004. Not certain if same results will be for other games**
