Anyone still playing PSO Online? (Dreamcast Ver. 1 or 2)

by pteague87 Tue Jul 26, 2016 1:49 pm

I've been playing quite a lot of the offline mode of PSO Ver. 2 lately, and I was wondering if anyone still plays online. Every time I go to the Hunter's guild to pick up a mission, I think "Wow, how lonely it is in here." Anyone play on http://www.schtserv.com ? Well to sum it up, If you are playing online: Where are you playing? How long have you played there? And name some things you like about it / dislike about it.

I used to play PSO on that private server but on PC via Blue Burst. Then I took a break and a few years later I came back to the server being shut down. I assume it's back.

In any event I am still playing the game but on the dolphin emulator for GameCube. I have the resolution three times the original and it's crystal clear! Back in the day I sank hundreds of hours into that game between Dreamcast and GameCube.

I enjoyed couch co-op on the GameCube. A friend of mine and I would play for hours on end and we would yell RARE when any one of us saw a red box. Very good times!

I still play using my DreamPi setup. There's a group of folks that host their own servers that you can play on, and even download all the V2 DLC still. I usually run on the DCTalk ship and would love to have more people to play with

man, looking at that Pi setup...they make it sound easy, but some of the parts (like that phone line refeeder or whatever it is) kinda muck things up a bit
