Re: [GC] Maximum Attack 3

I've updated MA3 with a few new features, since I was already backporting previous changes from GC to V2. Here's the list: If you run out of time, you no longer get zero points. Instead, you'll receive 2/3 credit for the monsters you managed to kill. You get full credit if you reach the end before t...

Re: Dreamcast Emulation issues

You should be using the serial number and access key from your GD-ROM of PSO, as serials are region locked on DC. If you're using Flycast you should ask the emulator team for support, as we only officially support real Dreamcast hardware. Emulator bugs are beyond our control.

Re: [GC] Altimira

I am pleased to announce a significant "new" feature: I have restored the ability to convert monster parts into weapons in Today's Rate. Although the original Dreamcast version of the quest had this feature, Sega removed it in GameCube, thus giving people no reason to ever play this quest. As in the...

Re: [GC] Patch Batch

PSO will never run at 60 FPS. The game uses hardcoded frame timers for tons of things like Mag feeding, so your Mag would get hungry twice as soon if you run the game at 60 FPS. Every quest also assumes that PSO runs at 30 FPS, so you'd break lots of quest timing things, too.

Re: PSO Questions & Answers

It's one of the many projects on my to do list. I got most of the way through cleaning up the Episode I quests, but that's still less than half way done. They work on GC but not DC, which is why I made the Hero & Daughter government compilation quest for DC.

Re: PSO Questions & Answers

Schthack has said he will help BlueCrab implement Episode III when it's fully working, but we have no idea when that will be. Neither BB nor E3 are being worked on here right now. There are tons of options for BB already, and where BB goes, PSO Drama™ always follows. So, it isn't possible for me to ...

Re: PSO Questions & Answers

You would need to erase the flash memory of the new DC and put in the serials used for your old character, and then it would work.

Re: [GC] Altimira

Phantasmal World #3 has a new feature: you can activate the Barrier Field with a voice command. The Quest Board lets you select between Standby/Palette/Speech modes, where Standby is "off" and Palette is the old system of pressing X to activate the Barrier Field. In Speech mode, you can say "barrier...

Re: PSO Questions & Answers

It's a downloadable quest, not an online quest. Using a USB controller with PSO PC is strongly advised, since you cannot change the keyboard controls at all. You generally have to play left handed in order to use the keyboard (numpad for movement, arrow keys to attack).

No, it's Dreamcast only. You can get those items from Garon's Scheme, instead.

Re: PSO Questions & Answers

You'd have to start over. PSO saves are encrypted, so there are no tools to convert your data between DC and PC.

Re: [GC] Maximum Attack 3

I've updated all six of these quests to store your points on the server, so that you can use any character you want to acquire points. The old system required you to always use the same character if you wanted to make any progress, which was a pain for people who have all 12 classes. Other changes i...

Re: Problems with PSO PC, Crash on startup :(

Are you using full screen or window mode pso.exe? Try installing without the movie, as it tends to cause problems unless you use XP.

Re: (GC) Freeze while patching

When your memory card gets old, it can take longer to save. Wait a few seconds before applying any patches. Sega coded patching incorrectly in non Plus, so you sometimes crash when applying patches. You can use the Combination 1 and 2 patches to reduce the crashing risk compared to applying patches ...

Re: PSO Questions & Answers

If they do drop, it's probably at some absurd one in a million rate that you'll never see. Nobody has bothered to make comprehensive V1 drop charts since V2 makes V1 pointless.

Re: [GC] Altimira

I've added another small feature to Garon's Shop. You can now combine 3 Monogrinders into 1 Trigrinder or 3 Digrinders into 2 Trigrinders to save bank space. Each combination costs either 500 Meseta or 2 Garon points.

No. Flycast doesn't let you configure your ISP settings. It does everything automatically.
