  1. Been a few years, glad to see everything up and running, just stopping by EDIT: this game is fun
  2. Let's keep it to MYTHS of PSO, that one has been confirmed a few times lol
  3. Before Ultima, my experience in PSO was on the Game Cube and limited to Offline mode with split screen multiplayer. Even though a lot of content was unavailable to my fellow Hunters and I, we happily we sank evenings and weekends into the game and had a blast transferring our characters back and fourth during sessions. Looking back, one thing that our inability to go online did provide us with was adding a great air of mystery and revere to the game. Online mode seemed a massive entity that we were ever "training" for to be part of, who knew what was waiting for us when we eventually
  4. Hey thanks, happy to be online. I’ve had more luck with the last few logins using a straight internet connection vs going through the VPN, though it still takes over a dozen attempts to establish a connection with the server. I haven’t been able to reliably reproduce the problem… leading me to believe it’s just my volatile internet speed/strength causing the hitches with logging in and occasionally booting me off.
  5. Made it in, switched VPN location to Hong Kong and that seems to have done the trick! Happy hunting everyone
  6. It's a negative for tonight, been trying for a few hours but just can't seem to find any luck. I'm going to give it another shot in the am.
  7. Thanks for the reply, I'm wondering if it is as simple as it being peak hours? I'm going to try my phone as a hot spot and see if that makes any difference. Cross your fingers for me !
  8. Ok Ultima, This is my first new thread and I wish it had some better content but I'm hoping to get some replies all the same. Here's whats up: I'm trying to login from China, my internet speed is around 20MB down and 1-2MB up speed. Two nights ago I did manage to get online, it took many many tries but I know it is possible. I generally use a VPN for internet use, when it's on the launcher of PSOBB races through the "Checking for updates" and gets me to the login screen wicked fast. Problem is when i get to the "Connecting to the server, please wait..." screen it gives
  9. Speaking of lobbies, was there a time when the "Ball" game was popular in the upper levels? maybe in the heyday of the game? come to think of it, does anyone know/remember what the number of players was back in PSOBB's peak?
  10. The experience & rare monster modifiers added to the game really speed things up. Entering the Forest areas on a first run through and leaving them cleared at over level 10 was a pleasant surprise
  11. Hello Everyone, Is Mumble still the best/most popular way to go about connecting on Ultima? or do most users have several voice clients and decide among themselves? thanks!
  12. Hey Chuck, Thanks for the welcome. I logged into Ultima for the first time last night and immediately was greeted by a higher level player offering to show me the ropes! it was great! But it being my very first time online I didn't want to party up until I had gotten some bearings. I wound up poking around trying to figure out how to reach some familiar territory aboard Pioneer II but didn't understand how the Lobbies/Rooms work. Eventually I turned to the forums and did some searching for "Beginners Guides" and that's when I found what I thought was the answer to all my problems: Chu
  13. Hey Pr1merJT, Seems like PSO really resonated with some people, I can say it's the one GC game I buy when I see it. I have 3 copies in storage with their receipts tucked in their covers, the first copy being $19.00 or something crazy cheap back in 2003 and the most expensive was at a convention for over $150.00! Are you going to look into getting your GC onto the Ultima server?
  14. @Angle @Aeroprism Thanks for the crash course, I'm coming from a place similar to Aeroprism where I've a few spent more than a few hours offline getting characters upwards of 100 but haven't been a day online. I'm sure It'll take a bit of getting used to with some of the slang and PB timing but it makes sense enough to me to show some courtesy to your fellow hunter... especially since we'll get none from the Ragol locals haha Shoddy Mender
