    @pcwzrd13 A server-side bank has been a feature that's been on the todo list for a long time. Unfortunately, it'd require a lot of extra work that is just a lot of work to do to make sure it works right in all cases. So, in short, eventually I'd like that to be a thing, but soon, sadly.
  • Feb 03, 2019 04:00:44 UTC:
    Tokens earned in the Wondrous Winter event on Sylverant can now be traded in for items in-game. See this forum post for more information: https://t.co/iIwQweZMo9 . Token trade-in will be available for at least two weeks, possibly longer (but not forever, certainly).
  • Jan 15, 2019 00:06:43 UTC:
    There's less than a week left to gather tokens and place on the leaderboard on the Sylverant event "Wondrous Winter". Get out there with your highest leveled characters and face higher difficulties to gather tokens and leaderboard ranks most efficiently! #PSO #Dreamcast #Gamecube
  • Dec 26, 2018 04:36:16 UTC:
    @Tulio2Dream It doesn't appear that Palmacosta has support for scripting built in though, so the event still won't work. You need to run the configure script with "--enable-scripting" with Lua 5.3 installed to make it work.

    @pcwzrd13 Glad to see people enjoying the event. That said, it only promises in-game prizes, no real ones. ;-)

Server Event Results: Wondrous Winter

January 21st, 2019

Our first new-style server event has concluded a few hours ago, so here’s the results:

For kills tracked during the event:

  1. NecroRevolver – 115220
  2. Modesty – 93315
  3. zakmat – 44570
  4. Jaxxer – 24330
  5. natural585 – 21507
  6. ChuChuFlamingo – 15206
  7. KPG – 15022
  8. Aleron Ives – 13337
  9. Lutz – 11660
  10. Blst – 10150

For assists during the event:

  1. zakmat – 71133
  2. Jaxxer – 25557
  3. 68kdude – 12874
  4. mahkbooks – 5258
  5. Aleron Ives – 4987
  6. NecroRevolver – 4508
  7. dcdingo – 4259
  8. ChuChuFlamingo – 4043
  9. Selene – 3025
  10. Kabes – 2834

Here is a link to the full results page. As of right now, the results do not show assists on the results page, but that will be corrected soon.

Prizes will be given out in the form of tokens to all of those who placed on either of these two leaderboards. I’ll make a followup here once the prizes have been distributed.

Now, as for what the tokens will be good for… Tokens will be exchangeable starting later this week. More information on exchanging tokens will be posted soon, but it will be done by way of using commands on one of the script-supporting ships (so, Iselia or Altimira).

I would like to express appreciation toward everyone who participated in this event! We had a total of 42 different hunters who registered at least one kill during the event, which is double the number that have participated in any previous events. There may have been a few rough edges during this event, especially early, but I feel that it was a rousing success. We will be having another event in this style coming up around Easter, so please look forward to it. We’ve learned a lot as we went through this event, so the next one won’t exactly be the same, but it will have a very similar structure and feel.

Prizes for those who placed on either leaderboard have been distributed. 1st place on either leaderboard got 10 platinum tokens, 2nd place got 9, 3rd got 8, and so on down to 10th place which got 1 platinum token. Apologies for the delays on leaderboard prizes and token exchanging.

Details on what can be gotten with your tokens are available on this post on the forum.

Server Event: Wondrous Winter

December 21st, 2018

I promised another server event by the end of the year, so here it goes. This one is quite a bit different than previous events though…

Event Information:
Start Time: December 21, 2018 @ 23:00 UTC (@000)
End Time: January 21, 2019 @ 23:00 UTC (@000)

Description:
The weather outside might well be frightful, so it’s a good thing you’re probably not playing PSO out there. Collect metallic prize tokens in-game to trade in for various in-game prizes in January!

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

Prizes:
Prizes will be given out to participants that place highly on the leaderboards for the various statistics this event tracks. More information on these prizes will be given at a later date.

(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.
  • This event tracks various statistics during your gameplay, including the number of enemies you have killed. Also, kills and various other events that happen in game may reward you with a bronze, silver, gold, or platinum token. These tokens will be able to be traded in after the event.
  • The list of prizes that can be traded for after the event will be posted at a later date.
  • The /trackkills command must be run on each registered guild card in your account in order to make progress on that guild card.
  • If you used the /trackkills command in the earlier events, unless you have since disabled it, you will be able to collect tokens and track your statistics.
  • 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!
  • Statistics will only be counted on ships running at least Git revision 562 (check by running “/ver” in-game). As of right now, this means that kills on Palmacosta and Vega will not count (this will be updated if/when the administrators of those ships update the code).

I will be posting more information about the event as time goes on on the Sylverant forum. The post where such information will be posted is here.

The Leaderboard on the website will not show results right away, as I have to update the website code to look at the new data for the event. However, you can check your progress in-game by using the commands /showkills and /tokens.

There will be another event coming up in the month of December, which might have a few new twists to it. Look forward to it! Also, to anyone who hadn’t noticed on the Twitter feed, you can now adjust the name that will be displayed in the event results for your account, in case you don’t want it to show your username for whatever reason — look on the Account Settings page after logging in.

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

December 30th, 2017

I seem to have promised people there’d be at least one more event incoming before the end of the year, so I’m going to make good on that promise. This one will at least start before the end of the year anywhere in the world. πŸ˜‰

Event Information:
Start Time: December 31, 2017 @ 05:00 UTC (@250)
End Time: January 14, 2018 @ 05:00 UTC (@250)

No matter how you wish to celebrate the arrival of the new year, let’s see some fireworks down on Ragol. Take out some baddies and fight on for another year!

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

(Not So) Fine Print:

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.
  • 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).

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!

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˜‰
