PSOv2 PAL: Currently there is no downloadable version ver.2 that works when connecting to the DC-Talk serer. You will need an official pal ver.2 pso

[Need one of these to configure ISP settings for the DC to be able to get online. Free ISP here: http://dreamcast-talk.com/isplist.php
XDP Web Browser for DC: http://dreamcast-talk.com/uploads/pso/x ... dition.rar
Or
Internet Settings Adjuster: http://dreamcast-talk.com/uploads/pso/ISA.rar ]

CodeBreaker for connect codes http://dreamcast-talk.com/uploads/pso/codebreaker.rar
Codebreaker boot disc for booting backup copy of PSO: http://dreamcast-talk.com/uploads/pso/cbbootloader.rar
Use the Code Breaker Bootloader Boot disc in conjunction with the regular Codebreaker to boot backup copies. Codebreaker alone cannot boot them and apply the codes correctly. Put in the bootloader for 5 seconds and swap it out and then put in the codebreaker. It may take a few tries to get the timing right.

Utopia is not recommended, so do not use it.

VERY IMPORTANT, YOU NEED THESE TO CONNECT:
Download these Codebreaker Connect Codes Onto a VMU: http://dreamcast-talk.com/uploads/pso/00003060.VMI using your DC web browser
Or
Download and burn this save disc to use in your DC to download the codes to VMU: http://dreamcast-talk.com/uploads/pso/savedisk.rar

1ST STEP FOR DIAL UP USERS:
This is a bit more involved. You will need to download the DC-Talk VMU file (above) onto the Dreamcast and codebreaker. *You may manually put in the codes for the region your PSO disc came from, if you prefer. After you put in the codes hit start and save the codes to your VMU.
*Important Notes for using Codebreaker: Make sure you only have 1 Memory Card in your first controller and in the first slot. This is to be done when saving and loading codes. After you load the game, swap out the Memory Card with the codes on it and put in your PSO save Memory Unit or just put it into the second slot.

The PSOv1 NTSC/U version requires these codes:

ENABLE
1EBF9758
C0705040

SERVER
0E083CA4
0001002C
012866FA
00003736
022866FC
3336312E
02286700
3338312E
02286704
0033382E


PSOV1 PAL version requires these codes:

ENABLE
144F9758
C0705040

SERVER
0E083C20
0001002C
012861CA
00003736
022861CC
3336312E
022861D0
3338312E
022861D4
0033382E

PSOV2 PAL version requires these codes:

ENABLE
1B7AAF61
8C5FF000
116F90D5
C0705040
1A87D212
40707044
1EEC10FE
0000D002
1EF4D0FE
2012D102
1E04D0FE
0009000B
1E14D0FE
AC937F78
1E24D0FE
0B50C4F3

SERVER
0E0A0848
0001002C
002E301B
00000036
022E301C
36312E37
022E3020
38312E33
022E3024
33382E33
022E3028
00000000

After the VMU saves are downloaded on your VMU, make sure your dial-up ISP settings/account is setup. Now you must first boot with the codebreaker to use the VMU save codes. Next, replace the codebreaker disc with the PSO disc (excluding NTSC/J).

Choose your character, then online mode, ship select, choose a ship and you should be online.

PSO screen shots:
Thanks to Nico0020 guide

You must have a controller in port D and you need a memory card with 195 free blocks in slot 2 of that controller. Now you must choose what type of picture you want, either way you will press 2 buttons on controller D. If you want a close up of the center of the screen, hold X and press Start; if you want a full screen picture, hold A and press Start. (Note A + X + Start is the same as A + Start) [Thanks to TeleKawaru for the info] The screen will then go black and begin to countdown in the top-left corner, when it hits zero your snapshot will be finished saving on the card in cont. D, slot 2. (Warning: as with all other aspects of PSO, this will NOT pause the game, make sure you're somewhere safe before taking the snapshot.)

Well, we try to make things as clear as possible.

Thank you for the kind words, I appreciate it. I really hope people will find this interesting & will play & enjoy the server. =] We also have a Q3 server up if anyone is interested.  :D

Hahah. It was the first game I played online. I don't play as much as I use to, but I'm still pretty bloody good.  ;) It has always been my fav game to play online, I don't think I could ever hate it even when people own the hell out of me.   ;D I'm usually the one to own people anyways. lol

Well, is anyone interested in playing on my PSO or Q3 server sometime? =]

No, this is Dreamcast and PC only... and SolidMetal, blueburst isn't compatible with anything else, we are a DC site, so we would not make a BB guide. Sorry.

quick run-down for BB:

install the client, use the schthack exe to start the game.
