Re: New user -- looking to be very active online

Welcome to Sylverant! 1) Generally we want to encourage people to play online, so we don't offer the online quests for download. Some of them (especially quests with bosses) will break your save file a bit if you play them offline, so downloading unpatched versions can be problematic. 2) Saint Rappy...

Re: PSOv2 and PSOGC Runtime Patching

Yeah, patching is technically broken in US 1.0, US 1.01, and JP 1.02 discs, because Sega coded the patch packet handler function incorrectly. We use a hack from PSOLoad/PSUL to work around the bug and make patching functional, but sometimes the game will crash. You'll lose Meseta when that happens, ...

Re: PSO Questions & Answers

Some people are able to bridge the TAP with their Wi-Fi and go online, but using Windows 10 is a big problem for Dolphin. You can cheat by getting an extra Wi-Fi router, configuring it as a client for your Wi-Fi network, and then connecting your PC to it via Ethernet. You'll technically be using Eth...

Re: PSO Questions & Answers

You can use the keyboard as the controller for player 2 in multi mode, but you should disable the GameCube keyboard that's normally connected (virtually) to one of the controller ports for typing in game, then put the keyboard back after you're done with multi mode. The common bank patch makes item ...

Re: [GC] Altimira

I'm pleased to announce another set of updates and new features for Garon's Shop. To begin, you can now carry up to 1000 Garon points, instead of 100. The higher cap goes with the first new feature, in that you can now buy certain items directly from Garon for either Meseta or points. Note that if y...

Re: PSO Questions & Answers

V2 players have orange names, while GC player names are white. You can find GC players on Iselia and Altimira, but our population is pretty small, since GC players are split across multiple servers. (The DC population is bigger, because all DC players use Sylverant.) What time zone are you in? Most ...

BlueCrab can probably restore your account if you send him the e-mail address you used to register.

The Mag Alert Patch will no longer go off in the lobby, and Seabed water is fixed in the Widescreen Patch for all aspect ratios. In addition, the Rain Patch is now available. This patch improves the rain effect in Forest 2 a...

Re: Please help to a new player on DreamCast. Feeling like I am a noob :(

How did you burn it? You need DiscJuggler or ImgBurn for CDI files usually. You can try burning my data/data version of BlueCrab's boot disc if the one on SourceForge didn't work: http://psopalace.sylverant.net/download ... er_2-0.zip

I don't know anything about Wii modchips. You'd have to ask on GBAtemp or somewhere that deals with Wii modding.

Re: PSOv2 and PSOGC Runtime Patching

Palette patch 1.2 is now available via server-side patching. Note that this patch has to come in two parts, so you must apply part 1 and then part 2 in order to use it. The Mag Alert patch has also been updated to not play the SFX in the lobby anymore, since you can't feed your Mag there. Two combin...

Re: My Pso ep3 not recognized by Devolution

You dumped the disc, but there might be errors in the dump that are preventing Devolution from accepting it. If that's the case, you'd probably experience random crashes whenever you try to access the file(s) that are corrupt within the ISO. Redump provides CRC32, MD5, and SHA-1 checksums that your ...

Did you verify the ISO checksum against redump.org to make sure it's a good dump?

Re: New quests???

Qedit allows you to convert between most quest formats, but that doesn't mean the homebrew quests you're working with are high quality and won't crash the game or cause other problems. ;)

Re: New quests???

Yeah, it's a well known hack to extract PSOX to your HDD and replace the offline quests with online quests. Episode II quests won't work correctly, though, and not that many people have an Xbox anymore, so there isn't much interest in PSOX stuff now. People use GC for Episode I & II so they can play...

Re: [GC] Patch Batch

I've updated the Palette patch again. There are now two separate editions of the patch: v1.2 Splitscreen mode is fixed and can be played normally now. Humans and newmans can map traps to their palettes for Battle mode. Palettes no longer get erased when you change characters, so you don't have to re...

Re: PSO Questions & Answers

Playing the offline quests "Magnitude of Metal" and "Battle Training" will give you some very basic tips on how to play if you read the NPC dialogue. The Sylverant Discord is a good place to get questions answered before you play, but you can also ask questions in game of other players. The most imp...

The Common Bank patch is now available. This patch gives you an extra bank to share between your characters, so you don't need to use splitscreen mode to do most item transfers. The price for this is that you can no longer use temporary slot 3 to transfer a character from another memory card, so you...

The weapon will also come wrapped as a present using the next ...

Re: Having trouble with registering GameCube

No no, the serial number is your PSO serial number, not the serial number of your GameCube! The PSO serial comes in the game case (along with the access key) and contains only numbers.
