After quite a bit of tweaking by myself, All-Star Baseball 2005 is now back online for PS2!

How is this possible?

The online server for All-Star Baseball 2005 for PS2 remains online, maintained by GameSpy. Somewhere along the line, it seems that GameSpy removed the downloadable roster content for All-Star Baseball 2005 from their servers. This included a downloadable roster update which is required for connecting to the online lobby. What I have done is reproduced these files so that players are seamlessly able to connect to All-Star Baseball 2005 online!

Here are some images of me accessing All-Star Baseball 2005 online:

(Error message received when attempting to access All-Star Baseball 2005's online mode normally; Failed to download roster version.)

(Hosting game lobby)

In order to play online, just set your Primary DNS Server in your PS2 Network Configuration to EITHER one of these:
(24/7 DNS server hosted by Bobz of; As a bonus, this DNS configuration will also allow you to play any of the Tony Hawk PS2 games, Battlefield 2: Modern Combat (Account Creation), Tribes: Aerial Assault, Blitz: The League, NBA Ballers, NBA Ballers: Phenom, MLB SlugFest: Loaded, Mortal Kombat: Deception, Mortal Kombat: Armageddon, Deer Hunter and Risk: Global Domination online as they, too, are hosted by Bobz)
( Server 2; Backup DNS Server hosted by Bobz)
(Alternative, hosted by FreddY)

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.

If you have this game and would like to schedule a time to play, reply to this thread or schedule a game day over at

Be sure to spread the word.

See you on the Ballpark!

Special thanks to FreddY for re-enabling online play for All-Star Baseball 2005.
