Impossible PSO for Xbox?

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!

Impossible PSO for Xbox?

Post by legit nyck » Tue Nov 16, 2021 9:24 am

Hi hunters
I read some articles on pso & xbox... Is that right? Were you able to do that feat?
If that's right please tell me how to play on Xbox,
Also in which version 360, X-series, Xbox first version,
That's if the pso can be played on xbox tell me how... Thank you very much ^_^
Ps: I was going to send this message in the Pso questions and **** but as I have a message not answered there I decided to open this so as not to mess things up Lol

Sylverant does support the Xbox version of PSO, however it is not currently possible for normal users to connect.

PSO for Xbox requires Xbox Live. There is a project that is trying to reimplement original Xbox Live called Insignia that is currently in development. Once Insignia is opened to the public, you will be able to use it to play on an original Xbox (Insignia will not support the Xbox 360, so it will require an original Xbox, not an Xbox 360).

You can find a few videos showing off PSO for Xbox support on the Sylverant Youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCvuLrB ... jMWmL3kZaw

In addition, someone else on the server recorded a video where I was testing out some cross-play between Xbox and Gamecube here: https://youtu.be/7U7bRgZ42jM

We're there any noteworthy issues present when testing Gamecube and Xbox cross play? I noticed the desync in the video but wasn't sure if that was due to the cross play or Insignia issues.

Also, outside of what's been tested, are there any anticipated issues when crossplaying between Gamecube and Xbox? Or is the hope/plan for there to be full compatibility between the two?

There are lots of problems caused by Xbox using different packets than GC does. Each packet has to be documented, and the server has to have new functionality to translate between GC/XB formats. Much more testing would be needed to achieve full compatibility, but it's probably possible.

I'm going to ask you a maybe silly question here, but... how will we download this Pso? The xbox360 browser doesn't work... and this game will be made available on xbox live is that? Download the virtual media and after that use the server ip to connect as we did before in pso dc?

The only supported way of connecting will be using an actual legitimate, unmodified DVD of the game on an original Xbox (not an Xbox 360).

The setup for Insignia will take care of any issues connecting to Sylverant itself.
