I know of 2. freezing while saving, or coming into contact with someone who uses pro action replay! I know a lot more on it then you probally do because I contacted Sega and they told me the exact two reason it will cause it.
Coming into contact with someone who uses Pro Action Replay? Are you kidding?
If Sega actually told you that (which I doubt) then the person you talked to either knows less about PSO than 90% of the noob HUmars on Vega, or was just lying to you to scare you away from buying a Pro Action Replay yourself.
PSO does not have some built in corruption device that destroys your files if it notices you talking or trading with someone who uses a Pro Action Replay. Not only would that be impossibly
hard to program, but it would destroy a lot of innocents. The only proven way on GC to be corrupted is turning your game off during a save. On Dreamcast I corrupted once or twice trying to dupe with my GS and accidentally picking up more than 30 items. Also I corrupted once trying to save my character to another memory card. Both of these were cheat-device related, but only because I
screwed up. It was not technically the device's doing.
I've been playing PSO online since the early days of V1, so I've been around the block a few times... I know what can do what to you. Trust me, trading with Barubary is not something that can corrupt your data.
