    @pcwzrd13 Sorry, but that's too long. There's a limit of 16 unicode characters (spaces are allowed too, just not at the beginning or end of the name). ;-)

    New feature on the Sylverant website -- you can now set a display name that is used on leaderboards instead of your username.

    Upcoming Sylverant server event, Candy Caper: https://t.co/6kGs4sRTGh
  • Aug 16, 2018 03:06:57 UTC:
    Runtime patching of PSO Episode I & II for Gamecube is now (really) available on Sylverant. See here for more info: https://t.co/CBI1PieWkj Sorry once again for the slightly botched release a little while ago, but it should be good to go now.

    @MichaelStenberg Well, it would be... If I hadn't screwed something up which causes Gamecube users on real hardware to crash on connect. So yeah... Disabled it for now. πŸ˜•

Server Event: Candy Caper

November 2nd, 2018

Well, I decided (or rather life decided for me) that having another “Haunting Halloween” event was too boring… So, how about a post-Halloween event instead?

Event Information:
Start Time: November 3, 2018 @ 00:00 UTC (@041)
End Time: November 17, 2018 @ 00:00 UTC (@041)

Description:
Monsters are running amok on Ragol, fueled by stolen candy from Halloween. Hunt down the offenders and help make the surface a little more peaceful again.

This event is open to all versions of the game currently supported on Sylverant.

(Not So) Fine Print:

  • This event, like previous events, requires you to have enabled /trackkills on your account while logged in (with /login or /tlogin). It is only open to those with a registered account on the Sylverant website that have registered their serial number and access key on the site.
  • The /trackkills command must be run on each registered guild card in your account for any kills made with that guild card to be counted (results are aggregated across all guild cards in your account).
  • If you used the /trackkills command in the earlier events, unless you have since disabled it, your kills will be tracked for this event.
  • Only enemies killed in free-play will be counted β€” no enemies killed during quests will count toward your totals for this event.
  • Cheating of any kind (be it by way of using a cheat device such as a CodeBreaker or by abusing game bugs) is not permitted! Anyone caught cheating in any way is subject to being banned from the server. This event is meant to be fun for everyone, not for a small group of cheaters to run away with it! There have been people disqualified in previous events — don’t become the next one to be disqualified for cheating!

9 Years

September 9th, 2018

It has been 9 years since I publicly announced/released Sylverant as of today, which also means it has been 19 years since the release of the Dreamcast in the US. While I regret how quiet I’ve been around here lately, the relative quiet certainly doesn’t mean that there hasn’t been stuff done.

For instance (for those who don’t pay attention on twitter), after a bit of a false start, I’ve rolled out online runtime patching of PSO version 2 for the Dreamcast and PSO Episode I & II for the Gamecube. There’s still more work to be done with that particular feature, but it’s still functional and available to bring some interesting and useful patches to Dreamcast and Gamecube users (at least those not using PSO Episode I & II Plus).

Server Event: New Year’s Fireworks

Server Event: Haunting Halloween 2

October 24th, 2017

Well, so much for having events several times a year… It certainly wasn’t my intent to go a full year between events, but sometimes that’s just how the cookie crumbles. Anyhow, it’s about that time for a new Halloween event, so let’s get down to business…

Event Information:
Start Time: October 25, 2017 @ 00:00 UTC (@41)
End Time: November 8, 2017 @ 00:00 UTC (@41)

Description:
The monsters of Ragol are at it again — hosting a party and not inviting us Hunters. Swoop in dressed in your Halloween best and sweep away the monsters that didn’t even think to invite us to their party!

This event is open to all versions of the game currently supported on Sylverant.

(Not So) Fine Print:

  • This event, like previous events, requires you to have enabled /trackkills on your account while logged in (with /login or /tlogin). It is only open to those with a registered account on the Sylverant website that have registered their serial number and access key on the site.

By the way it is the Halloween season, so be on the lookout for some tricks to go along with all the treats. πŸ˜‰

New Devolution Connection Settings

November 14th, 2016

Since the new server is at a different location than was the old one, unfortunately, the Devolution connection settings must also be changed.

Here’s the information that you should need to configure Devolution to connect to Sylverant:
Username: sylverant
Password: pso
Phone Number: 152579057317735

I have not been able to test that this new setup is working as of yet. If nobody reports back success or failure by the time I’m at home this evening, I’ll test it out.
Now tested and confirmed working. If you tried earlier in the day and it wasn’t working yet, it’s fixed now. πŸ˜‰

New Host

November 11th, 2016

If you haven’t been around in the past couple of days, then you probably never noticed, but Sylverant now has a new host. I apologize for the downtime over the past few days, but things are getting a lot closer to normal now…

I’d like to sincerely thank our previous host GrizzlyAdams for graciously hosting us for the past seven years. It’s hard to believe, but it all started with me joking around on IRC and asking if he’d like to host a PSO server that I was writing — and he agreed. I never expected him to do so, and I never expected the server to still be around all these years later. Unfortunately, due to a number of issues, he had to discontinue our hosting, thus I’ve moved us over to a new cloud hosting solution.

There are still a few things that aren’t quite back to normal yet, but they should get there over the next few days. The server itself has been back up for several hours, even if the website has lagged behind a bit.

I’ll be posting more details about what this move means in the near future.

If you are using one of the DNS tricks to access the server, you will have to update the address of the server. The How to Connect page has already been updated with all the information that you need to know. Anyone using the Sylverant PSO Patcher disc on the Dreamcast shouldn’t have to change anything (unless you were also using the old DNS server — if so, just remove it as it is not necessary). I still need to get the PPP server set back up for use with Devolution, so Wii users will have to wait just a bit longer for me to get everything back to normal (sorry!).
