Regathering to this subject let me point out that psobb private server can be good thing and bad thing. they been a problem from the start. this is no big secret so let talk turkey. also let you guys know Im telling the truth how there private server work.
PSOBB Ultima Server been good server and yet they do supply donation and same time keeping the game in order. but there problem IS that THEY tampering with game too mush having a lot bug problem from account bugs ISSUE , bank transfer bug.the server master named Larvas take the time to fix these problem when he have time AND must the time his loyal GM that hardly never around to do anything. only person that try to keep thing order inside the game is the *GM Mio* Only GM that is active and helping larvas. but the game have there problem and that there down fall. Because of this there many reason why the server have less player cause game so tamper with but also this game have is bad and good but mostly the time bad
now for the other PSOBB private server that run by Lee and Chrono114. The original person give this server to chrono but this got out off hand because chrono114 could not keep up with all the problem they had to deal with it . A person named Broom mop the legendary psobb hacker always figure out a way get back on them cause his way of thinking is hack other server for fun and keep doing it. Private server always been a hassle for the programmer vs the user so they shut down the server almost 5-7 month and rebuild the server and that when they made AntiHack.dll and was made from stopping the hacker from cheating the game and stop them from crashing there server or so called proxy server. but there always be a back door on how to cheat the game there for always been like this. Chrono114 started the donation as well to keep his server up. but also lead to a scam. Scamming and charging player for rare item or charging them with deal package is taboo. The private server is okay but too many aggressive psobb community and game is bad from hacking the game and cheat all the time. there other Private server not only psobb but there around. must them not even wort the time but in general Private server its a waste of time and nothing come out of it in the end. but this why PSOWWORLD try to warn you on here to don't deal with Private server from the start.
