- BIOS Files
For legal reasons I can't provide a link to PS2 BIOS files, but they are required to run the emulator.
Once you have obtained them, place them into the bios folder of your PCSX2 install.
This is the DEV9 network plugin for PCSX2. It will allow your emulator to connect to the internet.
Extract and put in the Plugins folder of your PCSX2 install. Then launch PCSX2 and select this plugin in the Plugins menu.
To configure this plugin select your network adapter from the drop down list.
- Network Adapter Startup Disc
Archive.org download link
You need to run this before running the game to create a network config.
You can pretty much just hit next until it asks you for a name for the config file.
If it says that it connected but couldn't contact Sony's servers, it's working.
- .hack//fragment Game Client
For legal reasons you will need to find the game client yourself.
Once you've obtained it either put the disc in the tray or select it from the ISO selector in PCSX2, then move on to the next step.
- Fragment Launcher
This tool written by 1UP will connect your game client to the Netslum server and apply a few other patches to the game.
Download the .elf file. Open PCSX2 and click System→Run ELF. Select the .elf file, wait for it to load and follow the onscreen instructions.
You will need to launch the game via the .elf file every time.
This is a USB plugin for PCSX2 by Air Gamer (who also made CLR_DEV9). It will allow you to type with your keyboard in-game.
Download and place in the Plugins folder of your PCSX2 install then select this plugin from the Plugins menu.
Don't use this if you don't have a gamepad.
- Area Server
The Area Server is NOT REQUIRED to play the game. It is used to create unique keywords and fields for you and others to play in online mode.
