    @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.

    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).

    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

    @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. ;-)

It’s been a while…

… since the last time I posted, so I figured I’d make a post.

Not much has changed around here in the past few months, at least not until the other day when someone started trying to use the Sylverant DNS server (along with a few other PSO-related DNS servers out there) in another DNS amplification attack. If you were following along on my Twitter (or on Facebook), you might have noticed a few messages to that effect about a week ago. You also might have noticed that I’ve written a new DNS server to use here that should be a bit more resistant to such attacks in the future. I guess we shall see.

One nice thing about this new DNS server is that I designed it to be possible to use for pretty much anyone hosting a DNS server for PSO. It’s easily configurable, and should run just fine on pretty much anything (*BSD, Linux, OS X, Solaris, … and Windows without needing anything like Cygwin). You could probably run it just fine on a Dreamcast, if you really wanted to. 😛 Hopefully some of the other servers out there might be able to make use of it in preventing attacks in the future. 🙂

EDIT: Just because I can, I just confirmed that the DNS server does actually run properly on a Dreamcast. 😛

    Such brag, much dns, wow dreamcast. 🙂

    Now seriously, amazing that it works in the dreamcast, does it take up many resources?

      Well, it’s not particularly amazing that it works on the Dreamcast, since I made the network stack in KallistiOS. 😉

      To answer the question though, no it doesn’t really need much in the way of memory or anything else (nor should it). The whole program is less than 500 lines of code (or was before I fixed a few things related to a particular function missing on Windows).

    great news! 😀

    Nice Project, just stumbled over it.
    I wish all the GC/DC Pso Players would gather in one System to get a nice Population going.
    But with a few Options to chose from i think Peolple need to know about this one too.

    • BlueCrab says:

      Well, I’ve always said that the best way to get people to play on the server is for the users to spread the word. A server is nothing without its users, after all. 🙂
