Yes... as long as you have a broadband adapter.

Some isp's provide some hours of free dial-up internet per month. Mine does, so I actually use dial-up to connect. Downside is your phone is tied up for 2-3 hours. Check with your isp to see if they provide emergency dial-up for free. Then you can try. Use the web browser for the dreamcast and follow the instructions on how to set your dns and connect to the internet. Its as simple as that, and you don't really need a broadband adapter this way.
The other alternative is to get psopc. Then you can play on computer. The game can cross-platform with the dreamcast.

You have your own topic now. Wink

You need a browser like PlanetWeb or XDP to configure a dial-up ISP on your Dreamcast. Any ISP that works with the built-in Windows dialer will work on the Dreamcast, but any ISP that requires separate software, like AOL, will not work.

VTRocket offers cheap access for $3 / month if you buy a year of service and only want 30 hours / month of usage, which makes it about the cheapest option available. The only way your broadband provider will have free dial up is if you get your broadband through a phone company, e.g. DSL, and your phone company offers both DSL and dial up. If you have cable or some other service, you probably don't get free modem access.

If you are using a GD-ROM, you need to use either a CodeBreaker or BlueCrab's loader disc to patch the game to connect to this server. If you use a CD-R, many of them are patched to automatically connect to Sylverant.

All of the Dreamcast versions of the game (other than any sorts of trial editions) should be supported on Sylverant.

Other servers probably do not support the Japanese version of PSOv1 due to a silly bug in that game's login sequence.

PSOv2 is an expansion of PSO. It has all the same content as the original game, plus a new difficulty level and some new game modes to go along with being able to raise your character to a higher level than before.

XDP is just one possible Dreamcast browser that you can use. There are tons of non-bootleg ones that you can use, too. As far as dial up is concerned, pretty much all browsers are equal. It doesn't matter which one you use. You can use PlanetWeb, Dream Key, or Dream Passport. They all work pretty much the same way. You enter your dial-up ISP user name, password, and the phone number you want to dial. After that, you save the details to your system's internal flash memory, so games like PSO can use them. There are tons of PlanetWeb copies on eBay.

I was stunned to see XDP v7 and it's mostly in Japanese.

Thanks for the browser feedback. I'll get right to it, in time, hang on !!

EDIT: Calling it a night.. 2AM already. What should I look up in the morning ? Is PlanetWeb choice ?

Here's a new PlanetWeb 2.0 for $4.50 shipped. It doesn't get much better than that.

That looks very legit.. such a small price to pay. I did try again due to impatience, this time burning up PlanetWeb 3.0 and saw everything practically same as tutorial I'm referring to.

Got my phone line in DC.. set everything. Not connecting. My ISP is AT&T for crying out loud.. but I just got off the phone asking if they offer free emergency dial-up. Doubtful, she's like "nah no way"

So VTRocket looks great for three measly bucks a month. But how would I have their dialup, do I need any of their equipment ? Here is how my phone/DSL line is looking at the moment:

You have home phone service to go with your DSL, right? You need to be able to make outgoing phone calls to use dial up. I see you have a DSL splitter connected to that phone jack, so you would need to run the phone cable from your DC modem into the telephone side of the splitter.

When you sign up for VTRocket, you'll get a username and password to enter into the DC browser's settings, and then you'll need to pick a local telephone number to dial from their database of valid numbers. You need to pick a number that's in the same calling area as your home phone number, or else you'll get charged extra (e.g. long-distance charges) for the time you spend online.

Post  mistamontiel on Thu Apr 25, 2013 7:08 pm

The connection is a-ok. White cable from phone side of splitter to the DC. Yes, I have a house phone and it always works as long as it's plugged to line

Maybe I should have used my real ISP login instead of inputting "username" "password" as the guy from tutorial suggests..

My area code is 305.. so I'm not so sure. I was hoping to get on via freedialup.org , but all their numbers are 603 area code.. stumped

As for DNS, there is nothing to set ? Just all 0 or blank ?

Using a fake username and password only works when you're dialing into your own voice modem to share your broadband Internet with your DC. DNS servers are provided automatically over dial up.

I did browse their site a bit. I see a slew of 305 area code numbers. One from the city of Miami. Looks promising

I think I get it now.. when I sign up for their 120 hours monthly service then I'll just have the username/password for DC to go online ?

Yes.

In order for the call to be local, the number you dial needs to have the same area code and either the same prefix or one in the same calling area as your home phone number. There are online databases that can tell you local prefixes for your area, or you can call your phone company and ask them which prefixes count as local calls for you.

The easiest way to get online is to download this boot disc, burn it to a CD-R with DiscJuggler using this guide, stick it in your Dreamcast, and then follow the on-screen prompts. You'll connect to Sylverant automatically after that, and you won't need to use the CB.

Wonderful http://ultraimg.com/images/2017/01/22/VUfA.jpg

Sorry I'm so late =} I finally acquired PSOv2 (I guess it has all of v1 right ? er the odd FMV ? That's merely a collector item I am guessing) and .. DREAMPI !!!

Having a houseline was not ideal anymore and I've been rocking out crummy RAmar for a lil while =} lvl15 , I just slapped the boot disc v2 on mini CD-R and works absolutely perfect

When I first booted up it asked me for v1 serial+access .. I shat a lil I put in v2 credentials and it proceeded without error anyway

There's different ships to play on but I assume any will do ? Also , I see can Download Quest before even joining ship , would that mean just quest alone ?

You can download quests to your VMU to play offline, but you can also play quests with other people in online mode. Altimira is our ship. Wink
