Re: boot problem on old dreamcast JAP system with builcd

If you're not even seeing the "Produced by or under license..." screen, then the problem certainly has nothing to do with KOS. I suspect that the "buildcd.bat" and bootdreams are using different methods to burn the disc (one using the data/data method and one using the audio/data method) and you hav...

Re: Fopen fails on gd-rom

It was designed that way on purpose, and has always been that way.

That's why even early versions of the Sylverant PSO Patcher (which used KOS) have their own disc access code to read the 1ST_READ.BIN file off a GD-ROM.

Re: Fopen fails on gd-rom

KOS does not support reading GD-ROM media -- it only supports reading CDs in the drive.

Re: Issues with KOS Setup Script

Unfortunately, I don't use MinGW to do development, so I can't really be of any help here. That said, since you're on Windows 10, another option is to use the Windows Subsystem for Linux feature and to build the toolchain that way (if you're not dead-set on using MinGW), which is actually the "offic...

Re: Help I have no idea what I'm doing

If you're using your own serial number/access key pair on the website (i.e, not a "shared serial" that you found online) and it is complaining that you're already registered, then that means you were able to at least make the initial connection to the server before you ran into issues (with the free...

Re: Unsure how some PVR features behave

First off, moved to Programming, since it makes more sense there... Second, to the questions... 1. The modifier lists are for sending modifier volumes, which change parameters of polygons that are "within" them. They can be used to do things like shadowing (by changing colors), or for changing textu...

Re: PSO PC Recovering Character Data

PSOv2 saves all character data on your PC. Unless you saved the directory of character files, there's no way to get them back. The server does have a way to save partial character data on the server (either manually or automatically), but once again, you would have had to have done that before you f...

Re: USB FTDI Coders Cable

The cheapest solution out there is to get one of the cheap USB->3.3v serial boards off of ebay (make sure whatever one you get has RTS/CTS pins, as well as the RX/TX ones) and to just solder it directly into the console using the test points on the motherboard (or if you're really adventurous, the p...

Re: programs hang on gdb_init()

I can't really help with the freezing issue, but I don't ever recall there being a GDB example in the mainline KOS repository at all. I know that I certainly haven't removed anything like that (or even touched the GDB support) during the whole time where I've been the one directing the project. Hone...

Re: Server Event: Wondrous Winter

As of this morning, there is now a penalty for playing in a team where you are overleveled. This penalty will slow down your kill counter and will vastly decrease your chance of getting token drops. This penalty will get worse the more overleveled you are for your team's difficulty and will get much...

Re: Basic newbie questions

You will want to get a US copy to make your life easier if you're using that setup. The serial number/access key pairs are region-locked, so you'd have to use the Japanese game if you want to use a Japanese serial number. As for finding people to play with, when you go online, you'll be put into a l...

Re: Basic newbie questions

1. If you want to be able to register your serial/access key on the website, you will need to have a non-shared one. If you're planning on playing with the official GD-ROM and the Sylverant PSO Patcher disc (which you'll need for the US or Japanese versions anyway), then it doesn't matter what regio...
