Ok ok I'm putting all the info I gather from PSOBB Beta here. Hurray for organization!

-Beta is entirely in Japanese =\
-Server-side Saving! w00t! Keep your stuff even if your comp explodes.
-Minor graphical updates and NPC remodeling.
-Section ID's are now calculated differently.
-Lv30 required for Hard Mode. More on higher difficulty requirements later.
-Actions can now be assigned to the number keys.
-In order to unlock areas, you have to complete the required quests.. in order no less.
Be careful as there are many many enemies spawning.
-Though there is no offline mode, you can still do the "offline" quests online in Quest Mode. It seems that only the 1st tier of quests are available. So it doesn't look like you can convert enemy parts in the Beta.

-Team system: Basically a clan system. Chat with members of the team in a separate chat window to see whats going on. Earn points to purchase items like team flags. Any additional stuff I'm still trying to find out.
Name of the team appears on top of your character in the lobby.

Sonic Team team flag =)

-Looks like they rank teams according to points.

-I recently did caves a few minutes ago and found out something interesting. I encountered a Pan Arms and waited for it to split. As I was hacking away at Hidoom and Migium, one of them casted Resta! WTF? Healed 85HP each time.
-Check this: You can now join a team in a middle of a quest provided that theres an open spot and you're up to that particular area.

Additional NPC pics.

-PSO BB Section ID Calculations & More
Character class now affect your section ID.
-On a team related note: there's this option called "Warehouse" where the team members can add items in. I'm not sure if you could add actual in-game items or team related items (like team flags).
-It seems that you need points to add more members to your team. I think default is 20. I guess that's not really a problem for us =)
-Logs, logs, logs. Chat logs and in-game logs are automatically saved in the PSO BB folder.
Check up on gossip in the lobbies and what areas you visited (with a simple "LOAD_forest" text no less).
Now you can keep track of all the PSO cybering chats. J/K lol.
-Official download from the official site.

I'll add to this as I find out more stuff.
Any related questions you guys have goes in here.

They can do that in the earlier version of PSO, its just really really really rare. Like, I've seen the orange one do resta maybe twice ever.

Cool pictures, I like the FOnewearl nurse. Bank lady still looks trashy though beigebiggrin.gif

Miginum (blue) was the one that casted techs, and would stab Hidoom and heal them both ;x

HAHAHAA!! As in they gave her a maximum push up bra? ahahaha... crazy graphics guys.

and I always wanted PSO to have action keys set to the keyboard. 99% of the fun of being a FO was mixing up the spells. Having only a few buttons on the controller is not enough for me.

Server side saving must be a boon. What took so damn long? More enemies is a no brainer. Insane enemy spawns is the life blood of PSO and sometimes the game is just too melow in the earlier stages. Give the people what they want, is what I say.

It may seem like a good idea but to me, its almost like playing Twister with your hands. Imagine trying to move around with the WASD keys and at the same time trying to hit the 1-5 keys. It was pretty awkward. Of course you can always set it to the right most number keys.
Having a split KB does help a bit.
After trying it out a couple of times, I rather stick with a game controller.

Yeah, but I have an extra arm and seven fingers on each hand, so....
I think I could make it work.

What I am talking about is mapping things to F Keys or something. Like the way you can do with text balloons now. Or the even the way they combo'd the D-Pad with the triggers or just something...
Speaking of... does any one own one of those combo controllers / keyboard thingies?

You can't set it to the F keys. They function as shortcuts to mail, chat, etc.
I own the ASCII Keyboard controller.. I use it all the time. At least for PSO.

I got PSOBB up and running last night, here are some screens.

umm..what?

It's pretty cool to play pso on the pc, but as far as menus go, I was playing all by memory and reflex. It took me a while to get my PS2 controller set up with the right combination. When I first started the game, I mistakenly set the resolution at 1280x1024, but it ran pretty good at that setting, with minor slowdown in Pioneer 2. I went back and switched it to 1024x768 and it runs perfect. The graphics at this resolution resemble the Dreamcast when utilizing a VGA Converter.

I don't know how much I will play this, but cool to have nonetheless.

Totally agree. My favorite parts of PSO were EN & C-mode. From the little I've played of this so far is seems tough!

Question: Is there a site where I can find menu translations?

There's this guy at PSOW that compiled a visual guide for this.
D@rK-SuN's PSO BB: Visual Guide
It's a pretty good guide. Though I thought it would be better if he typed the translations IN the pictures (at least for the simplier menus).

And a trouble-shooting guide by Arislan I think. Pretty cool guy.

For the beta, yes. It's pretty understandable that Sonic Team wants to slow everyone down and make progress slower. Though all the quests are basically mini Endless Nightmares, it's still pretty fun. I mean, there's no one with a hacked weapon or mag or anything like that. Fighting wave after wave of Hildebears by yourself equipped with a lv10 mag and a 10% Native saber is always fun.

-oh and a small update =)

Ok i'm online with this now. See you guys there!


EDIT: I didn't see any of you guys on, but this is a pretty sweet version of PSO. I really like how you have to do "Missions" to get to the new areas. It adds a neat twist to the old PSO.

My roommate and I were playing till 7 in the morning beigelaugh.gif
