Test Your Might! Mortal Kombat: Armageddon Back Online!

After quite a bit of tweaking by myself, Mortal Kombat: Armageddon is now back online for PS2!


How is this possible?


The online server for Mortal Kombat: Armageddon for PS2 remains online, maintained by GameSpy. Somewhere along the line, it seems that GameSpy changed the permissions of some of the MK: Armageddon related content on their servers, making them non-accessible to outside requests. This included a script which fetches the current date that the player is logging in, 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 Mortal Kombat: Armageddon online!

Here are some images of me accessing Mortal Kombat: Armageddon online:

In order to play online, just set your Primary DNS Server in your PS2 Network Configuration to EITHER one of these:


199.195.251.151
(24/7 DNS server hosted by Bobz of BobzEnt.info; 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, All-Star Baseball 2005, Blitz: The League, NBA Ballers, NBA Ballers: Phenom, MLB SlugFest: Loaded, Mortal Kombat: Deception, Deer Hunter and Risk: Global Domination online as they, too, are hosted by Bobz)



72.229.137.212
(BobzEnt.info Server 2; Backup DNS Server hosted by Bobz)


72.186.215.174
(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 PS2OnlineGaming.com.

Being that the online servers for all Original Xbox games have been terminated, this is the only way to play Mortal Kombat: Armageddon online!

Be sure to spread the word.

Flawless Victory!

Special thanks to FreddY for re-enabling online play for Mortal Kombat: Armageddon.

The fury of Mortal Kombat has brought the realms to the brink of total destruction. Every warrior has been summoned to this last epic battle, where survival depends on their ability to... FIGHT! The seventh entry in the ongoing fighting series is a full-blown armageddon, bringing together every bloodletting character in Mortal Kombat history as well as adding new characters eager for violence. Also featured are Create-A-Fighter mode, Create-A-Fatality mode, and a brand new Konquest mode.




For those that don't own it, Mortal Kombat: Armageddon is $9.99 used at GameStop, and is still available at most Walmart stores, bundled with Deception and Shaolin Monks as part of the Mortal Kombat Collection, brand new for $19.96.
