    Default XLink Kai

    Anyone play Pure online? It's not as good as infastructure would be, but it works.

    I wish I could, but I don't have a wireless router.

    I play it frequently on lunch breaks at work and at home using a powerbook, a mac mini, and my 10.4 OSXS Raid system...
    basically get the newest xlink kai gui release, plug the mac onto ethernet - the backbone you will connect the psp to the internet on can NOT be the same as the one you connect to the psp with- thus a laptop connecting to the internet on airport cannot also route for psp.
    disable airport
    next, once you verify the mac is online, launch kaidosxmenu
    pull the menu down to preferences
    set sniff device to en1 (airport card- en0 is ethernet which obviously the psp can't connect through)
    say ok to close the preferences.
    next, put wipeout pure into multiplayer mode and the wifi light on the psp should light,
    enable airport on the mac and connect to the computer to computer network PSP_________ (varies based on each psp)
    now, start kaid via the menu.
    Now, Open Gui Amaryllis, and connect to the localhost address 127.0.0.1 as defaulted.
    now create an account and enter it in the connection prompt, and you should now be connected to the xlink server system.
    click on the consoles tab in amaryllis to make sure your psp is listed as a little red globe, if it is, you can go find an arena, or just idle in the lobby and play someone you know is there... it's technically best to go to the wipeout pure arena to go find someone, but due to the difficulty in understanding kaid, it's pretty empty.
    i go by the username "defor" fyi.

    Sorry for the messiness of this post.. writing it up on my way home...
    anyway- Give it a shot, and it should be pretty straightforward...
    in 10.4 kernel panics seem to happen during the initial setup sometimes, so jsut reboot and try again... it'll eventually work. (even works pretty well behind the college i work for's firewall and packetshaper.

    So far i've only gotten the panic once on 2 separate machines, and only during the initial setup- it was a harmless panic however- most likely due to the sudden latching onto the port for sniffing by kaid.

    I just meant it as something to watch out for in case you had unsaved work open.
