Transferring Dreamcast character file to PC?

Post by Sonic_09 » Thu Jan 19, 2017 11:30 pm

Just want to know if there is a method to transfer over Dreamcast character saved file to PC. Since I have 2 dreamcast with dead laser, I'm switching over to PC PSO but starting over again is painful.

You can transfer some of your data (no playtime, bank, Symbol Chats, Challenge record, or Battle record -- level, Techniques, and inventory items only) if you use /save and /restor [sic] on a LAN server, but that requires your DC to be working well enough that you can log on to save your character.

My guild card is different from what it says on the sylverant webpage. I'm saving my character data using /save but they don't show up in the manage character data.

It would be better to manually create the char on PC with the same looks, creating the items 1 by 1 with a bank editor and then leveling the char by using cheat engine. (by applying the same total exp and then killing 1 enemy)
