Sylverant is a homebrew open source server for Phantasy Star Online. Dreamcast users still play PSO online with this server even today! This is the official forum for both the online game server as well as the open source project itself. Feel free to post and get a gathering started online! We can also show you how to get connected!

Note 1: This is Calvin's GuildCard number, I don't know his forum name, and I can't remember the name/class of his main character and I forgot to ask about playtimes... (It is on my to-do list)
Note: I'll change all times posted in comments to GMT so that we can figure out the time locally easier.
Info on timezones:
Please note that GMT does calculate DST, which varies and the US doesn't follow the rest of the world, just like in the UK they use BST during the summer. If your timezone is CST (central US) for example, you are GMT -6.00, however, DST is in effect, making you an hour ahead, so instead of subtracting 6 hours from GMT, subtract 5. Crossi is on around 2pm on Saturdays CST when DST is in effect. He'll be on around 1pm on Saturdays once you lose an hour again.
GMT +01.00 | 12:00 | 1:00 | 2:00 | 3:00 | 4:00 | 5:00 | 6:00 | 7:00 | 8:00 | 9:00 | 10:00 | 11:00
Beat - AM | 0 41 83 125 166 208 250 291 333 375 416 458
Beat - PM | 500 541 583 625 666 708 750 791 833 875 916 958
Note: The beat time system is based off of BMT (Biel Mean Time) which is equivalent to GMT +01.00
Please refer to this webpage to learn more about the beat system, which is used inside PSO whenever you push start. (the @number on the bottom right is the beat.
Meeting up and playing with others:
Language barrier - Playing with someone that speaks a different language:
So someone is on, but doesn't speak English. You can still play a game with them using the Word Select feature, which will show up in their native language. The word select feature are those pre-made messages that you can choose from. If you use the message "Can I join you?" in English, and someone has their language set to German, the message will come out in German for them. It isn't the easiest, but it is possible to play together.
The Friend List - Using it to see when someone is online:
There is actually a friendlist feature built into the server. You cannot see the friendlist from inside the game on GC versions, but you can see notifications for when someone logs in or logs off. The friendlist is also accessible from the website: https://wsgi.sylverant.net/friends.py
To use the Friendlist, try these commands while playing online:
/friendadd guildcard# Nickname
The nickname is something that you know the person by. It could be their primary character or their real name. Even if they log in on a different character, you will still know who they are.

I'll be connecting up tonight I hope, have a wander round. Hope to catch some of you online.

Hey guys, total newbie here to finally being able to use the O in PSO!
Spent a lot of time in offline multi mode back in the day before my memory card corrupted and killed my lvl140 HUcast but now I'm back and online too!
Guildcard — 15017
Char name — Mertek
Class Name — HUcast
Primary Role — Melee
Native language — English
Play time — Random. Depends entirely on whether I have any time between work, the wife and the dog haha
Hey everyone, made a post a ways back but haven't been able to play recently due to my and my wife's new baby.
I still wanted to post for when I do play from time to time.
Guild Card: 14846
Role: Primarily Melee, but I like playing support and will eventually make a Force.
Play Time: Sporadic, sadly. With our baby I don't really have set times I can play, but I play when I can. My timezone is EST.
GuildCard Number (you can get this from in the game or from your account page on the website)
Primary Character Name
Primary Character's Class
Primary/Secondary Roles you prefer.
Your native language.
The times you play (include time zone)
Kevlar lev 80+
English, but I can fudge my way through some Eskimo and Spanish
3:30am - 5:30am Alaska currently. I will update this whenever my work schedule changes.
Looking forward to connecting to play. I tried L33t, but there must be some server issues there atm. I used to play a lot of time attack Challenge Mode on the Xbox version of the game. But, afaik, you can not play the Xbox version online. my main is 170+ there too. My work/wife/kids/Madden tends to get in the way of playing as much PSO as I would like. . . .
I would be interested in C mode as well. I may be busy working on my driveway on Saturday afternoon though. I would have had multiple level 200 characters on Gamecube and Xbox, had I not spent so much time TAing C mode.
