.hack//VERSUS on PC and Online


Recommended Posts

  • Administrators

For awhile now, we've known .hack//VERSUS works perfectly on the PS3 emulator RPCS3. Back then there was no way to connect to PSN to play online. Until recently, RPCN a emulated PSN is now available. Today we tested .hack//VERSUS on RPCN and it plays flawlessly, you can even earn trophy's. Join our discord chat to learn how to setup and find players to match. https://discord.gg/yybPQgmAAa

How to Setup RPCN

You can connect .hack//VERSUS online with the (PSN) Play Station Network normally on any PS3 console.
Reminder that .hack//VERSUS is a Japanese import but the PS3 is not region locked, you can play out of the box.

You can also connect (tentatively) .hack//VERSUS online with the emulator RPCS3's own private network RPCN with the setup guide here.



There are a few steps to configure Netplay in RPCS3 which we will cover here.

Global configuration

First, configure the global settings as follows:

    Ensure you're using the latest version of RPCS3.
    Navigate to Configuration > RPCN.
    Ensure Host is set to np.rpcs3.net.
    Set NPID to the username of your choice.
    Click Set Password and type a custom password for your account. DO NOT FORGET THIS PASSWORD.
    Click Create Account and you will be prompted to enter your email address. Enter your email address and press Ok.
    If all goes well, you'll see a message that your account was created successfully.
    Check your email for a new email from RPCN with your token, copy and paste the token into the Token field in RPCN configuration and press Save.
Game-specific configuration

Next, configure the per-game configuration as follows:

    In the game list, right-click on the game you wish to play and press Create Custom Configuration.
    Navigate to the Network tab.
    Set Network Status to Connected.
    Set PSN Status to RPCN.
    Ensure DNS is set to, unless a different address is required for the game.


You must have the latest RPCS3, make a RPCN account, and you can connect online. However players playing on consoles who connect to the PSN can NOT connect to players playing RPCN and vice versa. Therefore if you see nobody online with RPCS3, that's because there's nobody playing.
