    @ONESTARv2 Just normal maintenance. Mainly an upgrade of the OS installed on the server. As for PSOX, everything is currently in a holding pattern. Insignia is still not open to the public, and we will not be able to open Sylverant for PSOX connections until then.
  • Apr 12, 2021 14:39:50 UTC:
    Sylverant maintenance completed ahead of schedule. The server should be back to normal operating conditions. Please let me know if anything is broken.
  • Apr 11, 2021 20:48:33 UTC:
    The maintenance window may be shortened (that is to say the server may reopen earlier than the schedule above says), if conditions dictate that it can be.
  • Apr 11, 2021 20:47:39 UTC:
    Sylverant will have a scheduled maintenance period tomorrow, Monday, April 12, 2021 from 09:00 to 12:00 EDT (13:00 - 16:00 UTC). During this time the PSO server and website will both be inaccessible.
  • Feb 08, 2021 04:22:45 UTC:
    @dragonminded @BobbyDilleyUK I'm just an old-school Dreamcast homebrewer (since 2001 or so), that someone gave a slight push to start looking at the Naomi too.

Server Event: PSO 20th Anniversary

Monday, December 21st, 2020

It has been 20 years since our journey to Ragol began. Let’s have an event to celebrate.

Event Information:
Start Time: December 21, 2020 @ 22:00 UTC (@958)
End Time: January 18, 2021 @ 22:00 UTC (@958)

Description:
20 years ago, on December 21, 2000, Sonic Team and SEGA released Phantasy Star Online for the Dreamcast in Japan — truly bringing to a start the world of online RPGs on video game consoles. To commemorate the 20th anniversary of the game that has kept us all enthralled for all this time, go out and rid Ragol (and/or some simulations) of the enemies that prowl.

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

System Description:
This event combines various event mechanisms that have been used in previous events. Each enemy you kill (or help with killing) and each box you break will have a chance to drop tokens that you can use to trade in after the event for various in-game prizes. There are global counters for various in-game events that will be used as goals to provide bonuses to the token drop rates. In addition, there will be a leaderboard for the event based on collecting Battle Points (BP). Your BP will be tallied up silently as you progress through the game. BP will not be used for trading for prizes — it will only be used to determine the leaderboard statics.

(Not So) Fine Print:

  • This event, like previous events, requires you to have enabled /trackkill 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 tokens. As with previous event tokens, these tokens will be used to trade for various in-game prizes after the event has ended.
  • The /trackkill 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 /trackkill command in the earlier events, unless you have since disabled it, you will be able to earn 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 are tracked across all ships in the server.
  • You may use the /tokens command on a ship to see your current totals of the various tokens.
  • You may use the /showbp command on a ship to see your current BP total.
  • The /goal command will display the current global kill count and what the next goal is for a token drop rate increase. This data will only update when you switch floors or join/leave a team.
  • Token drop rates may be adjusted as the event goes on. Also, there may be various announced and unannounced incentives for playing at different times during the event period.
  • Logging on with multiple clients at the same time to try to increase your token drop rate or kill counter will be severely penalized.

Server Event: Candy Caper 2

Tuesday, October 20th, 2020

By this point, it’s a Halloween tradition around here to have an event, so… Here goes…

Event Information:
Start Time: October 21, 2020 @ 00:00 UTC (@041)
End Time: November 4, 2020 @ 00:00 UTC (@041)

Description:
Somehow, a Delsaber has infiltrated Pioneer 2 and stolen all of the Halloween treats. Worse yet, he has hidden it with enemies all over Ragol. Hunt down monsters on Ragol to find the delicious Halloween treats!

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

System Description:
This event is similar in structure to the two previous events in that there is not a competitive leaderboard associated with it. Each enemy you kill (or help with killing) and each box you break will have a chance to drop various types of Halloween treats, which will be useful after the event to trade in for various in-game prizes. Like the last two, various global counters have been implemented for in-game actions taken by everyone playing that will boost your potential gains for token drop rates later on in the event.

(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 treats. As with previous event tokens, these treats will be used to trade for various in-game prizes after the event has ended.
  • 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 /trackkill command in the earlier events, unless you have since disabled it, you will be able to earn treats 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 are tracked across all ships in the server.
  • You may use the /treats command on a ship to see your current totals of the various treats.
  • The /goal command will display the current global kill count and what the next goal is for a token drop rate increase. This data will only update when you switch floors or join/leave a team.
  • Treat drop rates may be adjusted as the event goes on. Also, there may be various announced and unannounced incentives for playing at different times during the event period.
  • Logging on with multiple clients at the same time to try to increase your treat drop rate or kill counter will be severely penalized.

Server Event: Apart, but Together

Tuesday, April 28th, 2020

Many around the world are cooped up at home due to the current situation that’s facing us all… So, let’s have an event to encourage safe social interaction (virtually, of course).

Event Information:
Start Time: April 29, 2020 @ 00:00 UTC (@041)
End Time: May 20, 2020 @ 00:00 UTC (@041)

Description:
While we may be forced apart on Earth for the time being, no Earth-bound virus can stop us from meeting on Ragol. Find a few friends (virtually) and collect points for working together to rid Ragol of the enemies that prowl it.

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

System Description:
This event is similar in structure to the Wondrous Winter 2 event in that there is not a competitive leaderboard associated with it. Each enemy you kill in-game while on the server will give you some number of battle points (BP), which will be useful after the event to trade in for various in-game prizes. Like last event, various global counters have been implemented for in-game actions taken by everyone playing that will boost your potential gains for BP later on in the event.

(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 BP. As with previous event tokens, BP will be used to trade for various in-game prizes after the event has ended.
  • 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 /trackkill command in the earlier events, unless you have since disabled it, you will be able to earn BP 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 are tracked across all ships in the server.
  • You may use the /showbp command on a ship to see your current BP total.
  • The /goal command will display the current global kill count and what the next goal is for a BP rate increase. This data will only update when you switch floors or join/leave a team.
  • BP drop rates may be adjusted as the event goes on. Also, there may be various announced and unannounced incentives for playing at different times during the event period.
  • Logging on with multiple clients at the same time to try to increase your BP drop rate or kill counter will be severely penalized.

Edit: 6/1/2020 @ 11:55 PM EDT: The token exchange period has begun for the event. The list of prizes is available on this forum post. The exchange period will run through June 16, 2020 at 00:00 UTC.
