This is nuts. I've been trying to get on with my dreamcast

Post  stankinaz on Sun Apr 12, 2015 10:30 pm

I have a broadband adpater.

Aleron . . . if I had read your postings, correctly, all I have to do is use Bluecrabs's image, burn that image and I should be able to play PSO Ver. 2 without having to worry about my dreamcast license keys.

Now this is where I'm confused. How do I use your new program?

I've been confused for days trying to figure this out. I was successful getting on schthack's servers years ago. I watched videos on youtube and that video led me to psopalace which I had nearly had forgotten.

Could someone kindly lead me to the correct place to start?

Thanks in advance to any one reading this

BlueCrab's boot disc is for use with your GD-ROM (retail copy). This CDI is a separate copy of the game that doesn't need a boot disc. You burn it and then put it in your Dreamcast to play. You still need the serial number and access key from your GD-ROM, though. I highly recommend that you pick up a USv2 GD-ROM on eBay so that you can get unique serials, as retail USv2 discs are cheap. Even though you'll have a GD-ROM once you buy that disc, the benefits of using this disc instead of your GD-ROM are listed in the READMEs in the first post. No matter how you play, you always need a serial number and access key. Having unique ones from your own copy of the game allows you to register with Sylverant to get special account benefits, which is why it's recommended to have your own serials and not to use shared ones. I hope that clarifies things somewhat...

Thanks for your prompt response. I still have both my original ver1 and ver2

Post  stankinaz on Mon Apr 13, 2015 6:35 pm

I inserted your boot disc and just playing ver1. The screen displayed that ver1 doesn't support broadband.

2nd attempt . . . I inserted your boot disc, inserted ver2, inputted code for ver1, inputted code for ver2, connected and now I'm stuck on the warp screen and the error message reads,"Connection attempt failed. Broadband adapter is not set up. Select WEBSITE to configure your BBA. PPoE is not supported."


Any advise?


Thanks

The boot disc is BlueCrab's, not mine. In order to use PSO with the BBA, you must select "Website" on the title screen of USv2 (not JPv2 or EUv2) when the BBA is connected, and then you'll get a BBA setup screen. Save the settings to the flash memory, and then both Ver.1 and Ver.2 will work with the BBA, assuming your home network (and the BBA) is set up correctly. You need to know how to set up the IP addresses for machines on your home network in order to set up the BBA.

Ok . . . I followed Ives suggestion and saved to flash

Post  stankinaz on Mon Apr 13, 2015 8:18 pm

The BBA works. I can send email and receive email. I can view MSN and Google on web 3.0.

I saved settings to flash drive.

Now I'm getting:

"You could not be connected to server. Please check that your provider settings are correct before connecting. The line was diconnected. Press START BUTTON."

Thanks for all your help this far.

I think it's automatic. Did you put an original set of keys? Let me ask you straight, you've got an original copy of the game right?
Are you using the actual GD to connect or ives .cdi?

Edit: Never mind, I read in your previous post title you got the originals. Anyways, now that you've registered you were given a Guildcard number under your account settings in sylverant.net. If you see that you're registered.

Check the chatbox in this forums frontpage so we can communicate better.

Dreamcast Connection

Post  Aleron Ives on Mon Apr 13, 2015 10:18 pm

Did you set up a modem ISP? You must do this, even if you're going to use the BBA. Disconnect the BBA, connect the modem, then use your PlanetWeb 3.0 disc to set up a fake username, a fake password, and a fake number to dial. Save this information to the flash memory, then connect the BBA again and try PSO. PSO is dumb and checks for your modem information before it checks for the BBA. If you don't have an ISP configured, PSO refuses to connect, even if you're not using the modem.

Also, I split this into its own thread since it's a general DC connection discussion at this point and not specifically related to the new discs. Wink

No JOy

Post  stankinaz on Tue Apr 14, 2015 12:03 am

I've followed Ives' advise of putting a dummy account and password with previous browser 2.0. Web browser 3.0 I used the same log in.

I've registered my 2 PSO disc on Sylverant.

I can't figure it out.

Maybe it's because I lost all my original characters from the last time I played on Schthack many years ago. I started out with a new character and it will not connect.

But the days with schthack, it was so easy to log-in. My character was played on the original seganet. I just don't know.

Are you using BlueCrab's loader with your GD-ROM, or are you using my disc? You can't go online with your GD-ROM unless you use BlueCrab's loader or CodeBreaker codes, since it still wants to connect to Sega's server.

Treamcaster said to leave everything blank except DNS 1 - have you tried using static IP (setting your own IP address)? Maybe PSO isn't getting assigned an IP address from your router for some reason.

Ives.,.does your cd require codes by code breaker?

Post  stankinaz on Tue Apr 14, 2015 6:33 am

Just wondering. I remember reading that your new disc did not.

Everything you need to connect is part of the disc. CodeBreakers can't boot CD-Rs, anyway.

Ok. Ives' ISO Disc is insane. I can hook up my dreamcast via 56k modem too!

Post  stankinaz on Tue Apr 14, 2015 11:38 pm

Ok. I'm pretty impressed. I actually connected my dreamcast (with 56k modem) via my magic jack for about 10 minutes. My whole house is wired with magic jack. It's great for phone calls but trying to fax through it . . . forget about it - only 5 pages transmit. Don't ask me why I am still faxing, but in my line of work there are so many old school people who still rely on fax documents.

Anyways . . . . I'm not certain, but perhaps with a better land line it might play like the old days.

The dial up service I used was a free one I googled up for laughs. Sadly, I can't say if the ISP dial up is reliable, because I know for certain that my Magic Jack phone service doesn't handle data (again as an example . . . Fax).

Hopefully someone can find out for laughs.

Man the memories just keep coming. I was happy today to play a character from 2006.

Thanks guys for all your help.

Any disc can still use the modem if you're so inclined, although automatic connection is quite handy when you can't use the DNS redirect. The BBA is quite a bit nicer, though, since it generally provides for a less laggy experience and reduces the chances of you getting disconnected (at least if your phone lines are in bad shape and have a lot of noise).

I think it is just noise... Keep trying with the 56k modem. Maybe the data transmission is much less than that though... Who knows... I used to play for years with modem, until my isp downgraded to 33k modem. Then I kept disconnecting. I eventually broke down and got a bba.
