  2. I'm Sundark and I hate every single one of you nah I'm messin I think most of the active players have seen me around in-game, on Discord, or on the forums by now, but I figured I'd throw up a formal introductory sorta thread I've always gone by Sundark (or SundarkSoldier) online, I used to play Smash Bros competitively a lot more actively but I kinda fell off it. I've been playing PSO since I was really young, I played a ton (like way too much) offline on the GC (with a little bit online borrowing a friend's BBA), then on Schthack BB, then I got a couple of Smash friends playing on Ultima like 5~ years ago but interest in it kinda fell off with them so I stopped playing around there too. Got hit by the sudden urge to revisit PSO about a month, month and a half ago and hopped on this account I made those years ago and immediately got into a 4-person party with Sam/Snipe, I think Kris (idk his forum name) and maybe another friend of theirs idr anymore and it was basically a bunch of fun and like I'd never stopped playing. So I'm real hooked again for now and I'm usually happy to run whatever the hell people are up for though I don't have all the free time in the world to play. Something that really clicked for me was, during Triforce event, hitting level 200 on any character for the first time ever, which was my RAmarl HMK (previously I'd only gotten as high as about 192~6..? on a RAmarl also named HMK on Schthack, and before that was my HUmar on GC at 186). Other stuff uuuuhhhhhhhhh - I've played a lot of other video games, I like RPGs and action games, some of my favourite series are Devil May Cry, Ace Combat, Legend of Heroes, also I dig TWEWY but haven't played Neo yet so spoil it and I block you idk - I also currently play in and run a couple Dungeons & Dragons games - I don't watch a ton of anime but I've seen a few here and there - I like reading - Sometimes I stream at https://twitch.tv/SundarkSoldier - I'm mad interested in learning to mod/create content (quests or whatever) for this game because I'm a modding fiend so up-to-date resources/guides/links would be welcome - no my RAmar named Mobius does NOT mean I'm the Mobius everyone keeps asking me if I am, it's just an Ace Combat 4 reference so chill and let me pretend his Agastya is jet wings in peace ty - I wrote the stickied thread for PSO on the GC on the GameFAQs forums way back in the day and generally consider myself pretty knowledgeable about PSO but there's still stuff I'm learning about real high-level strats or Ultima-specific stuff Anyway das wassup

  3. https://4waypb.com has been undergoing some massive updates in the past month or so. A lot of people have had input and have seen updates over that time. Pretty much EVERYTHING about the site has changed. This iteration of the site uses https://www.speedrun.com as a reference heavily and has many other changes from the old. If you're not familiar with what 4-Way PB is, it essentially is a record book of top time attack / speed run times for Phantasy Star Online: Blue Burst on Ephinea / Unseen, Ultima, old Schthack, and then the GameCube version of the game as well. In the past I have done nearly all the maintaining of times manually with some help from phelix. This will no longer be the case on the new site. Moving forward users may create an account, log in, and submit times with a simple form (https://imgur.com/Szm7zbh). From there the times will be validated (https://imgur.com/2xecutG) based on the proof submitted (video or image) by one of the "moderators" which include a handful of players: myself, mt, reason, plx, armand, shiida, spuz, and probably some others I may be forgetting. This project is not complete by any means and truthfully is even missing some relevant content from the old site such as TEAMZ data among other things. As always feel free to point out any bugs or mistakes on the site. It will continue to be worked on to improve and add features. Special thanks to Soly as he does and did all the heavy lifting. I had little to no part in the programming side of things beyond design and basic level input on function. Feel free to sign-up and start submitting your times (https://4waypb.com/auth/register/), one thing to note is that for now accounts are approved manually throughout the day so when you sign up expect some delay in account activation. Change Log: -Overall interface / design update -User registration / login -User submitted times -Records page -Removed Episode column -Removed Team column (plans for something in its place) -PB / No-PB runs now have a column to denote via regular colored Twins icon and a mono-chrome version. -Rank now has a column to easily check the standings -Players / Class filter must now include any selections vs. any entry including any one of the selected values -Rules now live in their own page and have more detail (still being updated) -Removed unrelated content such as the entire Miscellaneous section, some items under Concepts, and the Server tab.

  4. Utilizing a video editor it is possible to sync the audio and double the framerate via interpolation. It also allows me to add super slow motion effects which could be pretty cool indeed. It almost makes me sick to watch it lol.

  5. Hello everyone, While it may seem impossible to many, it is possible to put the odds a little more in your favor trying to get a 85%+ hit base for a PGF combine. Utilizing Viridia or Yellowbooze for Arms type weapons and Skyly for Calibers with this strategy. Something to do when its not HH and you do not know what else to hunt. The more of us that do this the more likely somebody will get something crazy good luck. Evasion is vital to block the claws and keep them from opening. Frozen Faust and Arrest Faust are viable as well for this.

  6. Not the best HH for me yesterday but I got blessed by ROCT gods and managed to get Samba Maracas 80h as a reward, I'm pretty happy since its the best ROCT reward I've ever had :3 Edit : According @JupiterDeMars I'm still happy today (he's right)

  13. Name: Aaron Age: 17 Preferred contact method: In-game Hobbies: Video games, volunteering A little more about yourself: Before I played here, I had three characters and almost 2000 hours in-game on Ephinea and I was just looking for a fresh experience. Expectations from others got sorta overwhelming so I started playing what I thought was a less crowded PSOBB server. I'd consider myself decently experienced, but not the best. My character's name is Mindcandy for anyone willing to either help a noob out or just hang out. Hi Ultima!

  19. Yes Bulks suicide only after being damaged (0 doesn't work). Casts can split them very easily and safely, just drop confusion traps and let them bite each other. Fun fact though: Bulclaws don't necessarily need to attack someone before division. If you wait for long enough (about a minute) they will split alone.

  20. note for those that don't have sta - The second best evp armor is essentially free to get anytime, Stealth Suit is available in Gallon's Plan for 10-20 photon tickets (there's 3 items for 10/15/20 but I don't remember individual price offhand) from an npc in town (quick forest quest, 2 tickets per run on vhard, if you choose to side with npc at the end instead of gallon). It has no resists, 1dfp, but has 300evp making it second most evasive armor in the game, even more so than samurai armor (277), or wedding dress (244-284). It also makes weapons switch instantaneously, so bullets can't misfire. Though it does make items on ground harder to see as you can't see objects through your transparent body. However, in practical terms if you aren't playing one of high evp classes (ramarl/hucaseal mostly), then trying to attain high evp is kinda pointless, as most chars don't have the extra room to raise evp anyway in addition to have significantly less to start with. Likely better to just use Traps on a cast or rabarta on a force rather than boost evp in most cases. Humar is only class that doesn't have traps that could theoretically boost evp a lot, through extra mat space (maxes at 786 for char stat), and through Proof of Sword Saint (with specific katanas, sabers, twin swords, and two kamui) and his 3 free slots (+60evp each, technically higher than ramarl if geared out), though I think only excalibur and orotiagito/raikiri would have aoe potential As this strat is essentially just 'kill lots of weak monsters in high level areas', you can use whatever strategies you feel most suited to, even going full nuke force can work ok enough for just a few rooms like this.

  32. Yeah that's it. We have the topic ready on invisible mode so that whenever Larva (or Soly) starts the event, they simply have to unhide it and don't have additional work making it. There were more than 5 new topics in the past 8 days so it doesn't show on New Topics (which is annoying tbh) Also, as usual event Happy Hours will be tracked (and sometimes announced early) here https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1jB2zrdLdXs6tRbUaoDr8WX6EIr36FgQI2kyP7fasGIQ/edit#gid=19826840

  33. I've noticed I still have the last post in this thread even after a full month now, and I've got a few more ideas rattling around in my head, which I'll bullet point real quick (so much for that) outline below, but there's also an older post I want to draw more attention to. I'll start with my little bullet points: Revamp Very Hard Drop Charts Meteor Impact. Meteor Impact. Meteor Impact. Diska of Liberator. Slicer of Assassin. Diska of Liberator. Slicer of Assassin. H&S25 Justice. H&S25 Justice. Wals-MK2. Wals-MK2. Devil/... anything. Look at that shitty chart. Very Hard is chock full of useless garbage in Episodes 1 and 2 (VH E4 is actually pretty useful!), and so much of it could be replaced with drops that are more meaningful. I think a lot of Ultimate-specific gear (don't ask for examples, I don't have them yet) should be dropped down to Very Hard, just to make them more accessible. Not the crazier things, obviously, like Excalibur or TJS or whatever, but things that would, again, bridge that gap from vanilla Very Hard to Ultima-buffed-Ultimate. MO4R CUSTOM EQU1PS!!11!!11eleven!!11!1 The header is obviously a shitpost, and bear with me. Ultima has no lack of custom equipment, and it's all pretty radical. It's also all two things: Incredibly strong, and incredibly hard to get. Tons of the combination items for things like the Arrest Needle, Macho Blades, Mille Faucille, Psycho Raven, etc. are, again, the dreaded event-only drops. See my above post for how I feel about these (spoilers: unga bunga bad). I'm currently in the process of designing/brainstorming some more custom items, but for a specific reason: to bridge the gap between shitty Very Hard rares and the items mentioned above. I'm not quite ready to drop the google doc (yeah, that's how serious it is) yet, but a couple examples are: Mechguns that work roughly like the Spread Needle, while being stronger than the Spread, but weaker than the Arrest Needle, and a Dagger that is comparable to Excalibur (in that it's 3-target, high damage), but without a sacrificial special and therefore less efficient, and still totally outclassed by Hundred Souls. To give you an idea of what to expect, a lot of them are the result of more common rare weapons and pre-existing combination items (Magic Water, Photon Booster, etc.). I wanted to preface and outline this idea before just cold-releasing the document not just because I feel like there's more I can come up with, but also so that the idea is genuinely given a chance. I'm not trying to make more custom equips for the sake of goofy overpowered custom equips, I'm trying to bridge gaps between "useless" and "if you don't have this you're not viable" equipment, with the occasional "this is a unique and niche idea" thrown in there as well, and I'm drawing heavily on pre-existing items for stat ranges, effects, unique gimmicks, etc. to make sure that there's a) no overlap or b) overlap for a good reason. MOVING ON The post I wanted to bring everyone back to was this one, made over a year ago: I read this entire post, and it hits the "systematic problem" about Ultima and its playerbase/player retention, whatever you wanna call it, right on the head. I agree with just about every single word, though I think the entire section at the end on "lack of communication," while not incorrect, per se, can be ignored. It's not that it's not a problem, it's moreso just that it's not something that can be directly fixed. You can't help that people will just AFK in the lobby, although maybe adding an actual indicator of some kind that players could toggle on and off (could the arrow you can enable over your character's head be repurposed somehow? Food for thought) could be useful. Anyway, some immediate thoughts just from reading that: - Boost hit% chances in Episode 2, or maybe all episodes, and do it by a fair margin - Make Happy Hour more reliable, attainable, structured, or otherwise less centralizing - In tandem with the above, event drop rates should probably be thoroughly re-examined At this point, please refer to the last paragraph of my above post. I'm enjoying myself, quite a lot. It's great playing PSO again. I'm loving it. But there are things that are very frustrating about this server, and if improving the server, as this thread suggests, is an actual, real goal, these are some of the things I think are important to take seriously.

  35. The key is getting the bulclaws to open up quickly and in a repeatable fashion. Ramarl I believe is overall the most viable for this unless there is a way to force bulclaws to open from afar. 3 minute runs seem fairly efficient

  41. If there MUST be an "event" on for the server to remain captivating then there's something systemically wrong with the way the server is being run.

  42. There tends to be a usual concept that advertising and/or promoting this server will help it. It won't and won't ever help it. No matter how many people you bring into this server, the outcome will fall back to the issue it has right now as those new players quit to move onto something else or even defect to another server. No server is perfect but efforts to make a server better is the most constructive way to go. Throwing a ton of new quests and items into the game isn't fixing anything. If the structure of the server is bad, then it will never improve. This isn't 2008 anymore. The amount of decrepit qol that still lingers on Ultima hiding behind all the customs is preposterous. Just look at these threads. Has anyone counted the amount of times a thread has appeared on Ultima forums covering how "the server is dying"? Now I won't go into any details because anything and everything I can say has already been said. My point here are 4 simple things: - HH is a disaster - DTs and WoI are disasters - The QoL needs lot of modern touch ups. - Events need to spice the gameplay and not be the pinnacle of progression. Customs are amazing and fun when kept in check. Ultima power crept the game to the moon though when the game is already easy. All these broken customs should have been relegated to another drop chart in some Post-Ultimate Difficulty. This way, new players aren't gatekept from advancing. Some customs that can help advance into this higher Difficulty could be distributed throughout the Ultimate Mode drop chart year round. Of course, this would shift the meta to a new dimension but that already happened with the release of Blue Burst. This is likely all just going to be words to the wind but it has to be reiterated. No matter what you do or say; if the QoL is bad, then everything else is bad. If you want to read an in-depth take on my thoughts on this server, click here:
