For PCSX2
PCSX2 .pnach file
Extract this file to your pcsx2 cheats folder (make sure cheats are turned on in pcsx2. this works for build 8 only.)
If you installed PCSX2 1.4.0 like that one YouTube guide says to do then make sure you put the pnach in Documents\PCSX2\cheats and not Program Files\PCSX2\cheats.
For PS2
Netslum Patcher
Download the netslum patcher files and extract them. Copy the build 8.13 iso into the same folder as the extracted files, then run patch.bat and follow the instructions. The game client will then be directly edited to connect to the netslum lobby.

The status page gives you a live overview of currently connected players and Area Servers. If you can't access this page, it's very likely that the server is experiencing downtime, and you should contact Alkalime on Discord.
dotHackers BBS
The BBS is a forum that can be used to post technical information or meet other members of the community, since the one in-game doesn't work.
