Sonic Team has just posted a announcement at the JP GCN PSO webpage about Ver 1.1/Online Adjustment Edition. It says that Ver 1.1 is for the online user which seeks more comfortable network community. No more FSOD's/BSOD's? It states that:
- Ver 1.1 will be released in November
You can exchange your old disc for Ver 1.1
North American PSO Episode I & II is Ver 1.1
Not sure on this one, but it seems like whoever exchanges will receive a pumpkin since the quest is now gone
If you decide not to exchange you can still play offline
Data from the old disc will carry over to the new disc, but once you play on Ver 1.1 you can't play with the old disc offline or online
It also talks about items carrying over, but I cant make it out. Heres what it says using babelfish "In addition because the item and the ???Z?^ which are having disappear entirely, in addition to being thinking well, exchanging, that it receives, we ask."
Servers will be seperated and maintanence will be the same, but theres a chance that the old server won't get new content
PPPoE errors have been fixed
To exchange the disc you have to go to a private webpage
Access to the private web page will granted by entering your serial number and access key
Here's the link to the announcement http://www.sonicteam.com/psogc/pc/change.html
and I used babelfish to read it.
