Ok, so I was on IRC the other day when Blizzard brought up that he was playing Phantasy Star Online Blue Burst on a private server. Now, if you don't know, it's a RPG that was made for the Dreamcast back in 2000, yet, it's been ported onto the PC, Gamecube, Xbox, and things like that as well. What makes it awesome? It was made into a MMORPG, and unlike most of it's type, this one you can actually play in Single Player, and it's actually enjoyable. Alas, the servers were shut down for good a few months ago, until I was introduced to this one. This private server lets you play the Gamecube, Dreamcast, and PC versions of the game. The PC version is called Phantasy Star Blue Burst, and, is Phantasy Star Episodes 1, 2, and 3 put into one game. Now, onto the server.

Server details
Here is a list of features implemented into the Schthack private server:

-Fully unlocked teams - No need to register points to unlock dressing room and other features.

-Balanced Episode IV drop rates - We've balanced all enemy drop rates to be fair to all Section IDs. You can find a chart of what each monster drops here.

-Rare item sharing - Similar to PSO's young brother, Phantasy Star Universe, you can set your game to share rare items in order or in a random order.

-New Japanese content - You can obtain new mags and other equipment on our server.

-Multiple version server - Our server allows multiple consoles to connect to the same server as PC users. You can chat in the lobbies together, however, you cannot play together.

-Language support - PC Ver. 2 supports Japanese, English, French, German, Spanish and Korean. Gamecube supports English and Japanese. Blue Burst supports English only, except for untranslated Japanese quests.

So, what do you need?

First, you need the game, alas, it's on Megaupload, so, that could be a problem for some. PSOBB
Then you need to apply this patch. This one is on Rapidshare. Patch
And after that, this patch. Japanese to English Patch
And after all that you can register here. Register

*Note: To apply a patch, just extract it to your default PSO folder and let it overwrite what's there.

Now, some pictures, pictures make topic like this better.

Here is a picture of me.

Also, if you want to play a game, you might have to organize it. This is one of those games where you make a room, people join you, then you go from there and play the game.

Oh, I forgot to mention. With the servers, some of the don't have translations for the japanese text. I mainly go to Skyline, usually because it's all english. Another thing, I have 4 characters. Snuggletummy, ChaosWolf, Epsilon, and Polaris.

The game supports gamepads as well. But, if you're using the keyboard, then this will help you greatly (The game is basically keyboard only anyway.) Keyboard layout

Edit: I just found this on their forum. It's a FAQ, and it's pretty in depth. FAQ

Another thing. The Japanese Patch thing. If it says that there was an error, I'd say to just not worry about that, as, it did to Luminaflare and I, and hasn't affected the game in any way.

Edit: I just made a guild called Metanet. I think the only way you can join is if we're in a game together.

this game is unbelievably badass and probably the best MMO ever made.
i played it on the dreamcast and even took the trouble to set up the Gamecube version so i could play online back when it released, i liked it so much.

If you don't want to go through everything in the first post, then I do believe this also works Link

Also, like I said in the first post, I made a guild, or, team. The only way that I think you join it, though, is if we are playing in a game together. I'm usually in the Skyline server, Block 2, Room 13 (That's the Casino). Also, for those who don't want to look through the first post, here are some things.

I hope to see you all in game.

Blizzard, Quote, Obylisk, and I killed Dark Falz, the last boss of Episode I. I'm Gamma, Quote is Quotetype. Blizzard is Milani, and Obylisk is Obylisk.

Hey guys. I finally made it to level 40, so now I can access Very hard mode, which, is... Very Hard. Also, if anyone needs me, and you expect to contact me on mIRC. I've left #n due to the fact that everyone there insists on making me angry, just so they can watch my reaction. If you ever need me, go to #Doomsday instead. Anyway, back on topic, I hope you all enjoy playing the game though, and I hope more people play the game. So remember, if you need me, PM me or go to #Doomsday on IRC.


Oh, and I almost forgot. PSO Guide. Alas, it's only for Episode I, but even so, it's pretty useful.

Even though I dislike double posts, this is clearly a bump. I've just started playing the game again and I have come to show you all this really crazy gun someone had.

Image

I mean seriously... look at that.

Image

Obylisk, 2 random people, and I beat Dark Falz again, this time on Hard Mode, and might I add, I died 99% of the time due to his attacks only killing me in one hit.. and I'm the class that is supposed to take all the damage.

Another thing, if anyone wants to play with me, just ask in this topic and we can play, as I now see how cool the weapons can get, and the fact that 4 player Co-op turns out to be freaking amazing when you've gotten a game going.

Here, have a look at this. We beat the last boss again on Very Hard.

Image

Image

And hey look! A new sword.

This game is awesome, thanks for posting it. I'm only level 2, though. ^_^

EDIT: Wow, look where a day and a half of playing can get you. Level 16 now.
