Tonight, I have released version 2.0 of the Sylverant PSO Patcher. Sylverant PSO Patcher is a boot disc that will automatically detect and patch (in memory, of course) GD-ROM versions of PSO to connect to the Sylverant PSO Server. This new version is basically a complete rewrite and has a few bugfixes and new features, detailed below:
Due to that last fixed issue, it is recommended that all users update to the new patcher if they ever intend to play in Battle mode.
- Added support for patching the hostname in and booting the PSO Network Trial Edition.
- Added support for patching in the music for the Palace and Spaceship stages into the main bgm table. This way, quests that use these stages in non-battle mode (Prospective Horizons on Altimira) can use the correct background music. This patch is optional. When you see the note about pressing Start for all patches or A for not patching the music, this is what is being referred to.
- Fixed booting of many import games that would not boot with the older version. This version still won’t boot Windows CE-based games, but it hopefully will work with just about any other game you throw at it, if you choose to use it as an import boot disc.
- Finally, and most importantly, this release fixes the issues with battle mode timing out immediately on all Dreamcast versions when using the patcher. No, there was never any bugs in the server with regard to this, which is why it worked for people that used PALv2 and didn’t use the patcher at all.
You can find the downloads on the Downloads page on the Google Code project. As with previous versions, there are downloads for the source code, plain files, and a self-booting CDI image.
