Homeland online play mode is officially over. However we still can play online by IP connection mode (unofficial). Chunsoft doesn't support this connection mode. Do not inquire Chunsoft about IP connection.
The devices you need
1. Japanese GameCube
2. Homeland software (Japanese only)
3. Broadband Adapter (Modem Adapter is not supported
4. Network Environment

First, you have to finish one scenario in offline mode in order to play online. After you finish one scenario, Say the keyword ＃せつぞくきりかえ to Angel テンシ in the room. The default setting is Matching server mode (マッチングサーバーけいゆ). After the caution is shown, choose Yes はい to change Matching server mode to IP connection mode (IPアドレスしてい).
The translation of the caution is below.Caution:
If you change the connection mode, it will be soon saved on a Memory Card. Also, if you change the connection mode, the data of your online play (both quester and god mode) which is not finished will be deleted.
(It doesn't mean the data of Mascots and Accessories will be deleted. You just cannot login the server you went.)Server Information of Homeland
The official matching server service is over in 2007. Now we play online in IP connection mode, which requires the IP address of the Gamecube you connect to. To search for IP addresses of online servers, see the site Server information of Homeland
. The translation of this site is as follows.

If you finished the configuration of Broadband Adapter and found an IP address of online server, you can play online. Change into a mascot in the room, choose accessories to put on, and talk to Angel to select "Look for a server". Withdraw たいじょう and Reenter
When you Withdraw in online mode, you cannot login that mascot again (but the server doesn't disappear). Choose this when you want to go another server, or you want to reenter the same server (in a different mascot, for example).
To enter the same server right after you Withdraw, do the following;
(1) Select Look for a server, enter a false IP address, and confirm;
(2) As soon as the change has been saved, press B (cancel) and return to your room;
(3) Select Look for a server, enter the correct IP address, and then confirm.
Your original mascot remains on the server even though you did a Withdraw, so you are required to append a character to the end of the new mascot's name to make it unique. (This problem did not occur with the official matching server; the Withdrawn mascot disappeared with an announcement.)Logout ログアウト and Login ログインLogout:
When you logout, push start button and choose Break ちゅうだん. If you logout, that mascot becomes an absent mascot (るすばん). Other questers might use your mascot as a companion.
When you Logout, you can choose one of the following options:
(1) だれにもダメ No one can use my absent mascot
(2) きずなのひと Only the quester who has a connection with me can use my absent mascot
(3) だれでもOK Anyone can use my absent mascot
I recommend (3), because if someone uses your mascot it will level up and get more money, and the quester may equip it with a better weapon and shield.Login:
When you login the server you visited, talk to Angel and choose ログイン Login. (see the picture above) You don't have to change into a mascot when you login. The server continues in real time - unlike offline mode - so it is possible that the game has ended during your absence. In that case, you can't login that server again. You have to choose Withdraw.Finish a Server
If you see the end of a scenario, then the server ends. All online questers will get Clear Points, a recipe of mascot and an accessory. If you are offline at the end of a server, you can't get any Clear Points, a recipe of mascots, nor an accessory. (IP connection) *In matching server era, offline questers could get those.
After the Big God gives those, all questers go to the Ark はこぶね. This place is for questers chats and greetings after a scenario. If you logout in the Ark, that mascot will be automatically Withdrawn. The mascot will be back in the mascot box in your room, and you will go another new server next time.
