Ah. Yes, the numbers on the inner rim of the GD-ROM are not relevant to your serial number/access key pair. As you've said, it's not an issue to not register your serial number, except for a few features that you miss out on.

As long as whatever he's using is working ok, then there's no need to worry. :wink:

How those numbers got validated as a SN/AK on Sylverant website beats me, I suspect his lobby music not playing may be due to a GD scratch or something more trivial. Anyway, glad to get this all cleared up! :D

PSOv1 is a bit dumb and lets you type any numbers you want, but the GD-ROM factory production numbers on the surface of the disc are not valid PSO serials, which is probably why Sylverant rejects them. PSOv1 may accept them, but PSOv2 probably won't when it asks you to reenter your V1 serials when making a new character. As such, it would be impossible to play V2 on that Dreamcast without erasing its flash memory and deleting any characters that use those invalid serials.

Yeah but I don't think those numbers were entered in his DC as serials, rather, the serials were already there when he purchased that DC.

Which would cause problems if he were to "upgrade" to PSOv2 and try to transfer over the characters. PSOv2 would require you to re-enter the serial numbers, which won't work if you don't have them. Meaning the only way to use PSOv2 would be to erase the Dreamcast's flashrom and start over with new characters.

That said, as long as he's just playing PSOv1, there won't be any problem at all.

Configuring DC for PSO NTE; registering NTE with Sylverant

Post by FaithY » Thu Jan 14, 2016 6:57 pm

Hello. A couple questions for BlueCrab.

I just ordered PSO NTE for DC!

Will I be able to save the serials on a Dreamcast that already stores V2 serials?
As far as registering, Is registering SNAK on sylverant.net all I need to do?
Is there anything else I need before connecting?

Thanks!
:mrgreen:

To answer the questions in order:
1. I don't remember there being any issues having V2 and NTE serials on the same Dreamcast. I'm reasonably sure that my setup did have both, and I don't recall there being any problem.
2. Register your serial/access key on the website, and boot with the PSO Patcher disc.

Of course, there's not all that much you can do with the NTE... But that's another story. :wink:

You can take screenshots in-game, but they're pretty low resolution, and they basically require an empty VMU. It's really not worth it.

PSOv2-only quests use functionality that isn't available in PSOv1, and thus are not available for PSOv1 clients.

Well, no quests is one thing.

Nobody to play with is another.

/legit works fine with V1, as long as you're on a ship that has defined an XML file for the checker.

It's also worth noting that Vega is so out of date that you can't use /legit in the lobby, just to add some extra confusion to the mix. 8-)
