In April 2005, I wrote the “PSP Multiplayer With One Game” article. It was an extreme hit, which drew over 30,000 views. The article simple explained the step-by-step procedure to play a multiplayer game on a PSP when only one copy of the game is available. (link provided below) Recently, many have claimed that the procedure written is no longer applicable to firmware v1.52., and that players can no longer see eachother in the game. This isn’t true it’s still possible and this video will demonstrate it. To make this easier for everyone I have created a 3-minute long video which goes through the process. The video demonstrates how to perform this “hack” with Twisted Metal. Please feel free to download this video and spread it as you would like. A summarized procedure is at the bottom of this post.

Step-By-Step Procedure: (Twisted Metal w/ 2 PSPs)
1) Startup both PSPs and place the game into PSP #1.
2) Start an Ad Hoc game, create a server, and choose your settings.
3) Set time limit to unlimited (recommended), only because it takes a while to load the game in to PSPs since we only have 1 copy of the game.
4) Choose your car, but don’t start the game.
5) Remove the UMD & say no to quitting game.
6) Start the game in PSP #2 and go to multiplayer.
7) Enter the Ad Hoc mode and enter the server created by PSP #1.
8) Choose your car, but don’t start the game.
9) Remove the UMD & say not 2 exit game.
10) Place it back into PSP #1 and enter game
11) Once loaded take it out & and say no 2 quitting.
12) Put it back into PSP #2 and enter the game.
13) You should now be able to play eachother.

How do u find out if theirs a psp near u
Won’t one psp freeze up
doesn’t work for crash tag team racing, it just says ‘disc error please insert disc etc.’
dosen’t work with grand theft auto liberty city stories, it says “disc read error, plese insert disc”
GTA loads audio tracks for background music constantly from the disc so thats why it will keep crashing. So one way to get past that is to switch all playing tracks to tracks stored on your PSP’s memory stick, then it should work! To do this download the Custom Track Loader here: http://tinyurl.com/dzopj just put some random CD in and copy a few songs and ask your PSP to play it!
i have tried to load up gta with the custom tracks but i still get the error reading disc message. can u shed any light on the problem

(gt:lcs) when i put the songs on my memery stick and start a game and do all that jazz… it doesnt work
it says that it has a disk error so there must be somthing going on? the umd must have something that GTA requiers to play online, maybe you have to trick the psp into beliving it has the cd inside…like a game crack. get back to me if you can on my email :)
