New Patch For Metal Gear Online Incoming | PS3Blog.net

Still playing Metal Gear Solid Online? If so, Konami has released a new patch for the MMO. The update adds adjustments to Drebin Points for weapons, weapon parameters, skill parameters, and skills for unique characters ( i.e Raiden and Vamp ). Player Character movement has been increased overall plus “Idle Kicks” have been implemented for Auto Matching.

Updates for the background music were also added which will include more tracks from Metal Gear Solid titles. The patch will be able to detect fraudulent network connections as well. If I didn’t trade my copy of MGS4 in I’d still be playing MGO on occassion. It’s probably for the best though, since I was pretty terrible at playing the game online.

    Haven’t played MGO for a bit, but I always come back to it! If anyone wants to meet up for a game night let me know. Hopefully this weeds out the glitchers.

    I’ll admit it is a challenging game to play. It’s not for everyone.

    To play MGSO, you have to create two different special user ids and passwords (which must be different from each other), then you have to patch the game through their custom non-PSN patch system, then you have to do the full MGS4 insall, even if you aren’t going to use the single player mode.

    Ideally, they’d ship a PSN version of MGO that used PSN IDs and the regular PSN patch system.

    OMFG my friend will be so happy yo, he been playing it since release. But yea i nvr got a chance to play it ):

  • i do still have MGS4 never did play the online will need to give it a try at some point

  • Tosh

    Sounds like we need to have a MGO Game Night πŸ˜‰ Not sure how much interest there would be though.

  • as long as im available ill be up for it

  • Kratos

    I have never played the online mode because of all the goddamn hoops you have to jump through.

    I always wanted to try MGO, but the damn thing won’t patch!

    Tried many times, but it never connected to the server. A shame.

    Do HTTP Download. If you do the bit-torrent method, you have to open a port on your router as well or DMZ your PS3. I’m doing the torrent method now and it’s going fairly quick. But only really works well when the update is fresh so lots of people are online at once.

  • IIRC, if you grappled someone on the enemy team in MGO, you could talk to them over mic.

    Never got to try that; But i always wanted to start asking people out on (fake) dates during an intense hostage situation.

    but then I stopped playing πŸ™ I’d be up for for a gamenight of this if you can put it on a weekend.

    I tried both and couldn’t get any response many times.

    But I’ll follow your advice and try it again now, since there’s a new version available.

    I have MGS4 and finished the single player but never tried online because of the stupid id system. I might go back and give it a go sometime but I don’t know why they don’t just tie it to a PSN account.

    Now if this patch was adding Trophies to MGS4/MGO I’d be interested and would definitely replay it. But I highly doubt we’ll be seeing trophy patches for any older games anymore. Which is a shame, I’d love patches for MGS4 as well as Resistance, Folklore, Assassins Creed, Lego Star Wars, Rock Band and Motorstorm!

    Getting online with MGS was so overwhelming that I never did give it a try. Required you to make an online account and jump through hoops. I might just do it for the sake of curiosity at this point.

    1 Hoop is to much huh? Create a Konami ID and enter it in .. DONE.
    Have it save it to you never have to enter it again.

    That’s how it worked for me. I really couldn’t understand how it was made out to be a horrid process.

  • Darrin

    You need to create TWO username/password pairs, not one. And, when you try and use the same user/pass for each one, (which is the natural thing to do), it doesn’t let you do that. And it has really weird and specific user/pass requirements, so if you have standard passwords that you use, you can’t use those.

    And then the patch process was a nightmare (I let the patch process run overnight for about a dozen nights before I finally got it to complete patch). And the install takes forever, and I had to reinstall it after the patch.

    No, the complaints are not exaggerated.

    Wow, I didn’t know that!

  • Kratos

    @ Darrin, I was going to bring up the same points. Thanks. The online process is ridiculous. Anyone who is trying to defend it has either never played a streamlined online game or is a masochist. Mine would not update, regardless of P2P or http methods. Creating a new username for just one game is beyond stupid. What’s the point of the PSN ID then? Why would I want to give Konami more of my info?

    Let me get something else off my chest too…this crap would never fly on Xbox Live. I’ll probably be accused of being a “fanboy” or “hater” but whatever, I own both consoles and facts are facts. Updating games on an Xbox is simple and fast. Your Xbox Gamertag is valid/used for all games. I realize that not all PSN online games are like this but when a high profile release is this broken, that’s pathetic and inexcusable. If I wanted a headache, I’d play PC games.
