Re: [GC] Altimira

If you've been around the PSO scene for a while, you're probably aware that most BB servers have implemented materials and grinders that stack to 99 in order to use bank space more efficiently. While this isn't possible on GC due to client sync limitations, I've just implemented a system in Garon's ...

Re: Level Progress Resets

Your Synchro drops by 5% every time you quit the game or exit a team. To prevent the Synchro loss, put your Mag in the bank before you quit or return to the lobby.

Re: [GC] Altimira

I've added a new quest called "Patches for Plus". As you might guess, this quest allows you to apply some of the patches that non-Plus players can get via server-side patching, since Plus doesn't support that feature. Some of the patches have been simplified, e.g. the Draw Distance Patch updates few...

Re: [GC] Patch Batch

If you use the PAL release of PSO GC, a new patch is out today just for you: the Progressive Patch allows the PAL version to display in progressive mode when you use the Wii component cable or Wii 2 HDMI adapter. NTSC releases already have progressive support, so they don't need the patch. The patch...

Re: PSO Questions & Answers

You cannot patch a GDI of USv2 to connect online, because the game binary is compressed. If you can't get BlueCrab's boot disc to work with GDEMU, then you have to use a GDI of EUv2 or a CDI of USv2.

Re: PSO Questions & Answers

Delsabers are able to leave the room they spawn in when you play Battle 1, and the quest forces them to always have high stats, so they will 1HKO you if you're playing the rule on characters < level 100. The rule is working as intended. Rules 2, 3, and 6 are the most fair since they reset everybody'...

Re: PSO Questions & Answers

Is it possible to patch the game to stack grinders and materials? Yes, but no. You'd completely desync with unpatched clients who expect using a Monogrinder to free a slot in your inventory. Who knows how they would react to you having "more" than 30 inventory slots, but mismatched item lists (you ...

I've updated the Palette Patch to version 1.1. The update fixes a small bug with Photon Blast targetting. Photon Blasts normally have their own palette with its own targetting rules, and mapping PB icons to regular palettes causes them to use regular targetting rules, including displaying reticles t...

The regular Pioneer 2 music will play in every room, instead. If your GameCube is still in good condition, then you ...

Server-side patching for PSO GC is finally here!

Here are the patches that you can currently use by selecting...

Re: Getting error 100 constantly

Try changing your Wi-Fi band? Maybe there's too much traffic on other networks near you. You could rule out the Wi-Fi as the cause if you temporarily move your equipment so you can use a wired connection, then see if you can stay connected longer.

If you're playing in Normal and want to prevent level 100 players from coming in and destroying everything, you can use /maxlvl 20 to keep them out. On the other hand, if you're pl...

Re: [GC] Altimira

I've made a few changes this time around. Maximum Attack 3 now gives slightly more points on Very Hard than before, and "Super Hard" bosses have less DFP. I've also implemented another attempt to reduce the frequency of the "Endless Warp" bug. When you use the sparkly that sends you to Dark Falz, yo...
