    Default Guide: Alex's Note To New Posters

    As I cannot post this in ToH's thread, I will post this as a new thread.

    Somewhat inspired by ToH's Thread, and partly mad at the repetative posting of related questions, I decided to type up a few answers to things that I have seen frequently asked.

    1.) No, you cannot play Ep. 1 and 2 online from the Wii. It is not compatable. You can, however, play offline on it.

    2.) We really don't care if you think PSO is the best thing ever and/or that PSU is nothing compared to it. Threads like that serve no real purpose. And the only things they bring are flames, elitists, and overused dialogue.

    3.) If you pipe on the Wii it WILL ruin your Wii, but it will take longer. What it does is it wears out the lens inside the Wii, just as it did on the Gamecube. A more effective way to find rare monsters is to do missions those monsters frequent. Then quit the mission before you finish it, should you not find the rare monster. Then redo the mission. However, do not be confused. NEITHER way will increase or decrease your chances of running into a rare monster. While piping is faster, it will ruin your console. And while the runs are safer, they are slower. So the choice is yours, but know what you are getting yourself into first.

    4.) No, the official servers for Gamecube, Dreamcast, Xbox, and Blue Burst have been shut down. And no, Sega will NOT be bringing back the official PSOGC servers. If you are seeking to play PSO online, you will have to do so via unofficial servers.

    5.) Parasitic Gene: Flow and Red Ring are NOT available on GC/Xbox. You will not find them unless they are hacked or if you go to someplace where their droprates have been changed (ie. private servers). End of story.

    6.) Be patient. People will post to your threads. You do not need to post multiple times to keep your thread at the top so people will read it and reply. Give it time. The PSO community is smaller nowadays, but we are still here.

    7.) Luck has no influence on your chances of finding a rare monster or Special Weapon. Luck increases your chance for a critical hit.

    8.) No, Gallon's Shop, an online Episode 2 quest, is NOT on PSO+. Nor is it a downloadable quest. It was online-only, so the only way to play it is to be online.

    9.) You do not lose anything between regular PSO and PSO+. You can freely swap disks with no loss of anything. PSO->PSO+ = no loss. PSO+->PSO = no loss except you can't access the Episode 2 quests until you switch back to the PSO+ disk: items and character remain the same, even items obtained from the episode 2 quests.


    Well, I have finished my venting for now. I merely wanted to get some things out there that have been randomly scattered throughout various threads. If some of these were covered in ToH's thread, my apologies.

    You are misinterpreting this wrong then. Not to mention you are new here, so I wouldn't expect you to fully understand what was meant by this. Allow me to explain.

    Throughout the years PSO-World has been up, there have been countless people asking the same exact questions time and again. The mods and other posters recommend the Forum Search option, but none of these people seem to understand them and just keep asking the same questions. I, alone, have seen hundreds of threads asking about Red Ring and PG:F, about whether or not the servers will be back up, about Gallon's Shop being on PSO+, etc, etc. And most of us get pretty ticked off when we see people not utilizing the Forum Search to have their questions easily answered. We're also ticked off at the ammount of elitism flying around here, from both sides.
    So I created this thread in the hopes of ALIEVIATING those questions. Answering them so that these people DON'T HAVE TO ASK. Isn't that a better solution than having to answer thousands of threads? Most people here seem to think so. And from what I and many have seen, this thread does seem to work, and people have been asking less and less of the questions mentioned on page 1. I didn't expect it to, but this thread was even stickied because it helped; because it works.

    I know the posters have freedom of speech. I am not stopping them from making threads. Nor do I think I am better than everyone else. I am not that egotistical. Where you got that from is beyond me. And I do take it a bit personally when people automatically assume this of me. I am merely providing help for people so they don't have to ask. So please, understand where I am coming from with this.

    That's alright. Just so long as you try not to do that again I take it rather personally and will defend myself.

    It is right in the forum rules, which people should really read as soon as they join. I do not particularly wish to restate some of the forum rules (granted, I am sure I probably have somewhere down the line here).

    Just thought I'd add something Alex. Anything past the second page is usually not a good idea to bump.

    I think you should edit 4 in light of PSZero. PSO might not be coming to DS, but PSZero sure is pretty close to it.
