Is the torrent the only way to get the patched autorun.exe?

Post  skyhawk71 on Mon May 01, 2017 3:52 am

Hello all,

I seem to have ran into a bit of a snag here. I recently tried installing PSO onto my Windows XP computer using the actual game discs. After following the guide found on the website regarding how to install the PC version, I've seen that the guide suggests copying over several files from the torrent, which includes pso, online, autorun, and online_offline. I have the pso and online executables, but not autorun.

Is the torrent the only way to get the patched autorun.exe, or is there another place where I can obtain it? I feel that it is unnecessary to download a torrent for the full game just to grab one file.

Wow, you actually have the CDs? Did your copy come boxed? Very Happy

I guess I never released the autorun separately because back when PSO PC was popular, I created the torrent so people would have a clean way to get the game. A lot of people got Broomop-esque downloads that came with hacks preinstalled, so I wanted to encourage people to download the clean game if they wanted to play online.

These days I guess with the waning popularity of the game, this approach doesn't make much sense anymore and isn't really needed, so just for you I'll finally release the autorun separately. bounce It's now in the PC downloads section.

Yep, mine came boxed and everything. Everything except the SNAK, I believe. Unless the PC had a different way of storing the SNAK and not on a leaflet like the Dreamcast releases.

Also, thank you for uploading the autorun.exe! I really appreciate the help. Smile

It comes with a separate piece of paper with the serials on it, IIRC. I haven't opened my box in a few years. Wink

In that case, mine didn't come with one. I'll have to register a new SNAK tonight.

EDIT: Got it working! Now I've ran into a bit of another snag. I need to figure out what gamepads that PSO PC natively supports.
