Re: Hunts & Findings

Over thanksgiving weekend, I played enough Forest of Sorrow runs to get my newm from 83-90. No God/Battle. Got PD'd by bears twice. He is now 93 and has been PD'd by bears a third time. Still no God/Battle. He also ran Fake in Yellow a bunch of times and never got a Sacred Cloth, PD'd by rappies onc...

Re: GameCube/Wii Players

Posting in this thread to draw attention to the signature I just now bothered to write. :lol: I've seen several of you in game, and for the most part it's been great fun. The chars in my sig are my Dolphin chars only. I have several cards' worth of GC chars, including one 200 and a large cache of go...

Re: [GC] Maximum Attack 3

Calling the legit players as the players that play in a bubble is something i didn't expect from you bluecrab. We play the game in it's default statistics so that when we talk about hunts, drop locations and efficiency it all matches, we play with players that play under the exact same circunstance...

Re: [GC] Maximum Attack 3

My stance has always been that the quality of the reward should be similar to the amount of effort required to get it. I know that even today there are quests on some servers that give Photon Spheres for practically no effort, and as long as I have anything to say about it, that will never happen h...

Re: Screenshots Thread

A couple choice images of the floor-copy glitch in my version of Dolphin. It basically saves over that texture temporarily when I play Ep1 after Ep2 in the same session. I could upgrade and fix it, but I like my derpy floors. :P Plus, this time for whatever inexplicable reason, a couple members of m...

Re: [GC] Maximum Attack 3

Our "official" view of legitimacy is that I don't care about it, as long as everyone gets along. Remember, nobody can possibly play PSO online at this time and be 100% legit, according to Sega's standards -- Sega's server is long gone, so Sega's standard is that you can't play online anymore. :wink...

Re: [GC] Maximum Attack 3

In the interest of full disclosure and avoiding "drama", I will reveal from the start that the prizes you can obtain from point milestones are the awards from offline Challenge mode (both shields and weapons). You aren't very likely to find people to play splitscreen with you in 2015, let alone peo...

Re: Questions regarding Download quests, new quests and NPCs

If Schthack ever had DL versions of the stock quests posted, it was after the time I spent there. You probably got them elsewhere. And it's true that several other currently-active PSO (or at least PSOGC) servers have DL versions available, so if you're so motivated to get them, they are available. ...

I found a Smoking Plate in Ruins last night.

...for someone else.

...the one run where someone else called it despite the fact that I could use one for my newm.

tl;dr my client hates me. XD

Re: PSO Questions & Answers

Do you mean the game is buggy? Well specifically (if this wasn't obvious), there's a big difference when fighting Belras in Plus. Stand still in front of an Indi Belra, and it'll fire endlessly and never hit you unless you move. In non-Plus, you get hit anyway. Given that this was deliberately chan...

Re: PSO Questions & Answers

Gamecube wise, no the Plus version doesn't really get you anything of that much importance. The offline quests (which are all downloadable from the server now) are a part of PSO Plus already, but that's about the only real (noticeable) difference. When I'm standing still in the middle of six Belras...

Re: C-Mode

I'm interested in theory, but I'm never on at anything you'd call a consistent time, so it's gonna be hard to get a team for anything specific (at least, not unless out of order cmode is implemented). But for what it's worth, I have a HUmar who can do 1c2 and several others who can do 1c1. All on GC.

Re: Schtsrev dead & Future of Sylverant

The server used to show all the stages all the time, and I asked Schthack to patch the server to read everyone's Challenge data and only show the stages available to everyone, which he did. The problem was that the server always allowed people to join teams when the leader was using the guild count...

Re: Skype group for Dreamcast online

Posting here just to say that I'd totally be behind a GC Skype group if one should ever form up. Although in practice, I don't play that often and just casually, anyway, so I make no guarantee of being on with any regularity. :P

Re: Schtsrev dead & Future of Sylverant

It's funny, you see, because not too long ago I played an MMO where this exact kind of issue was rampant (to the tune of 50-page threads and 1500+ vote polls, in some cases). Trust me when I say I'm aware of the lengths people will go to and the size of blinders they'll put on in order to rationaliz...

Re: Schtsrev dead & Future of Sylverant

I'm aware of how it was designed and why, and I'm never one to favor the subversion of existing game design if it's possible to find some other workaround. Unfortunately, this particular design assumes that you'll have a large enough community to form cmode teams who need a specific stage with few, ...

Re: Schtsrev dead & Future of Sylverant

I think the only feature from Schtserv that I really miss is the ability to play cmode stages out of order. The original system works with a community big enough to find enough players for a given stage, but with how small this community is, it'd be a huge help to just play any stage (as long as you...

Pretty much that. I even went out of my way to set the TAP adpater to "always connected" so it wouldn't show the network cable unplugged thing. No effect.

God damnit Microsoft.

Re: Getting on w/Dolphin (GC)

Don't have any problems with the GPU, thankfully.

How would one run a DNS server, exactly? I haven't worked with any software which does that. And more importantly, if I were to find out that Dolphin was generally failing to send DNS requests, what could be done about it?

Ran in compatibility mode for Windows 7, as admin, using local copies of the files. No dice. Any other variables you think I could cut?
