    PlayStation 1 developer LameGuy64 who you may recall as the developer of a fantastic PS1 homebrew game Marilyn in the Magic World while the developer recently announced the cancellation of that game he did release the source code for anyone willing to continue the project. Now the PS1 developer is back with a new release along with the Source Code provided. PSXNET shows another use to the Serial Port on those early PlayStation 1 models, as PSXNET with help from a Raspberry Pii give the console the ability to connect to the internet . Checkout the details of this project in the details provided by LameGuy64 in the quote provided below:​

      That's pretty cool, would this eventually lead to being able to play a two player game over the net?

      I think not as it may require a server service like psn but who knows mayby?

      Just got a Raspberry Pi3 on the way for my DreamPi but will try this with my SCPH-5501 but not sure if I can use this with my PSIO as it hasn't arrived either. Hopefully the two can be used in tandem when it arrives.
