Phantasy Star Online: Blue Burst private server

Post by Luriden » Mon Apr 16, 2007 8:19 pm

Somehow I just now found out that Schthack made a private server for Blue Burst. Back in the days of when he made one for the original PSO, he was saying BB was out of the question because it's a subscription game. Well, apparently I'm behind on this, but he has one for Blue Burst. It's extremely simple to set up, and I just logged on to find ~400 people on.

Check it out.

Yeah, BB has been open since November IIRC.

The Xbox 1&2 is not supported because they apparently have to crack Xbox Live to get the game to connect. It uses the same packets as PSO GC with just the Xbox Live auth stuff.

And BlueCrab, You have an Intel or PowerPC Mac? I think it works with Parallels now, but i would have to check it out.

Too bad this doesn't work with Xbox 360. If it did Id run right out and buy it. From what I seen in the demo it seems like a decent game. Id actually be willing to pay $60 for it, however Im not willing to pay a monthly fee to play it.

I think you're getting it mixed up with the Xbox version.....which isn't quite as good. This has an extra episode. This is a PC game. If you're using a PC right now, you can play it for free.

Intel. But I don't have a copy of Windows to use for it (and I have no intention of pirating it).

Correct. Sega gave the game out for free. They make their money from the subscribers for the official server, especially since there is no offline mode.

I never got what you're supposed to do with this game.
I went to the hunters place, got a quest, went into the warp thing, got one-hit-killed.

How the hell do I ensure something is for my level?

Eh, questing usually isn't best for people to take on alone under level 5 or so. Go to the portal in the town and select Forest and just play through that normally. It's still hard at first, you can die in about 3 hits depending on your class, but it gets easier once you're past lvl 10. Starting the game out is the hardest part of the game. Also note that the game was made for online play, so while it may be a bitch to play alone, with 3 other people it can be quite easy. Even if they're all at your level.

Just a warning: the controls suck ass. I have an Xbox to USB adapter, but I'm trying to find a working controller to use it with. I found an old one, but it has a problem where you press A and it thinks you're pressing A, X, and Y. You press Y, it thinks you're pressing Y and A. You press B, it thinks you're pressing A and X, etc. It's probably beyond repair.

Yep. Just choose the first ship on the list, that's where all the American players go.

I also forgot to mention in the thread title: the creator is VERY strict about cheating. If you drop meseta on the ground, you'll get disconnected. So don't drop your meseta. In Blue Burst when you die, you lose exp instead of dropping your weapon and meseta (as was the case for the DC PSO), so no worries there. Schthack is just afraid of meseta dupers, so don't drop your meseta on the ground. If you're trying to help a friend get some money, give him some items you don't need that he/she can sell.

I tried this server a bit back but gave up on it due to not feeling like slogging through all the grind on the same quests from the start to build myself up to take on the new part. My characters no doubt deleted by now but it wasnt much anyway, server side character saving is a pain a month of no activity & its gone, if it was an easy case of putting the new bits into the old PSO then I'd do that instead with my mighty characters in that version

Downloading, will give it a go when it's finished downloading :D

I can't edit my hosts file right now though, it won't let me. I could go into safe mode blah blah blah, but I'll just change it while in Linux later on tonight.
