* UPDATED TO REFLECT RECENT SERVER ADDRESS CHANGES. EDIT YOUR PS2 NETWORK CONFIGURATION ACCORDINGLY! *
I would like to emphasize that using this special DNS configuration is ONLY required for creating a new GameSpy ID Account, and is NOT required for general online play.
While you may use these servers for regular online play, if any of these servers are offline for any reason, you will not be able to connect online with Battlefield 2: Modern Combat. Use your normal PS2 Network Configuration for regular online play!
After quite a bit of tweaking by myself, GameSpy ID account creation is now back online for Battlefield 2: Modern Combat for PS2!
How is this possible?
As many of us know, Battlefield 2: Modern Combat for PS2 remains online, maintained by GameSpy. A few years ago, it seems that EA removed any BF2:MC related content from their servers. This included a Terms of Service agreement that is crucial for creating a new GameSpy ID, as the file must be downloaded and viewed in-game before creating an account. What I have done is reproduced these files so that players are seamlessly able to create a new GameSpy ID for Battlefield 2: Modern Combat online!
Here are some images of me going through the account creation process: ('GAMESPY ID MANAGEMENT' --> 'CREATE NEW ID')

In order to be able to create a new GameSpy ID account for Battlefield 2: Modern Combat, just set your Primary DNS Server in your PS2 Network Configuration to EITHER one of these:
22.214.171.124 (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, Tribes: Aerial Assault, All-Star Baseball 2005, Blitz: The League, NBA Ballers, NBA Ballers: Phenom, MLB SlugFest: Loaded, Mortal Kombat: Deception, Mortal Kombat: Armageddon, Deer Hunter and Risk: Global Domination online as they, too, are hosted by Bobz)
126.96.36.199 (BobzEnt.info Server 2; Backup DNS Server hosted by Bobz)
188.8.131.52 (Alternative, hosted by FreddY)
NOTE:Using this DNS configuration is NOT required for online play. You will only need to connect to this server if you would like to create a new GameSpy ID account. After you create and save your account information, you may connect online normally and play with your new account(s)!
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.
