the DexDrive allows you take data from your memory card, and store it on your PC, or the reverse; take memory card data from your PC and put it back onto your memory card.
Why do I want a Dex Drive?
It works with almost every PSX game and PSX memory card. You will only ever need 1 working memory card to have a "virtual limitless" memory card. Since you can back up your Memory card onto your PC.. you can always wipe it clean for new games, then re-apply your old Memory card data later.
What does the Dex Drive have to do with Monster Rancher and Monster Rancher 2?
Since Monster Rancher and Monster Rancher 2 do not support online gameplay, this is the best solution we have come up with:
- For Tournaments: take your Memory card data, once it is on your PC you can E-Mail the file to a "Tournament Host". The Host then takes all the competitors and fights them for the Competitors. (Best 3 out of 5 matches between each 2 monsters).
