Welcome to Phantasy Star Portable 2 Infinity!

This page serves as a guide to get you set up playing the game on a system of your choice, along with instructions on how to install various patches, install the downloadable content, setup multiplayer, and where to begin once you start playing the game.

Please note that currently, while online multiplayer is possible from a PSP or PS Vita, it is not consistently possible to play with players on PPSSPP, and therefore we do not recommend attempting to play online multiplayer on official hardware. As such, there will be no guides on how to connect online with your consoles, and we recommend transferring your savefile to another system temporarily whenever you wish to play multiplayer.

Installing the game[edit | edit source]

Modifications[edit | edit source]

Main article: Modifications

The Phantasy Star Portable 2 Infinity community has provided various enhancements and edits to improve the gameplay experience, ranging from 60 FPS patches, the ability to play online-only missions in ad hoc multiplayer, improved high-definition textures, and more. Note that many of these enhancements are done through cheat codes to modify the game's memory, however, none of these cheats will impact the game negatively. The wiki will never provide tools or codes to impact the gameplay directly.

Setting up multiplayer[edit | edit source]

Main article: Setting up multiplayer

While the Phantasy Star Portable 2 Infinity infrastructure servers are long gone, it is still people to play online with others through P2P networking through emulators. Currently, the PSP2i Wiki recommends multiplayer through PPSSPP rather than official hardware (PSP and PS Vita), as a majority of players play on emulators now. It is very difficult to crossplay with emulators and hardware at the moment.

Due to this, we will only be recommending methods that are easy to set up on PPSSPP and can easily crossplay with PPSSPP.
