  1. You can use a controller for the game to have a closer experience to the original. Out of curiosity, which article led you to here? Oh and welcome btw.
  2. Welcome!
  3. The only way to 'enforce' auction rules would be through an ingame system (like they do in some other MMORPGs). You put an item in the 'auction house' with a 'starting bid' and a 'buy now' price. (with 3 monetary values : meseta, PDs and dts) You select a time period in hours (max a few days) You submit your auction item and it remains in the system until it's either sold or withdrawn within the first 10 minutes (e.g. you made a mistake with the pricing) People who want to bid on it, select a certain amount and place the bid. You can't take the money out until someone overbids you. But as Soly said, auctions are something you need to have your own responsibility in. It's a system where the buyer wants the most value out of an item and thus should cope with a certain level of uncertainty when an offer is too good to be true. If people constantly withdraw their offers or break other rules, they'll pretty much ruin their trading reputation and will have a harder time buying something. Implementing a system like I mentioned above takes quite some work and has to be completely safe/exploit-free. Afaik there were no real item auctions in the forum several years ago.
  4. Welcome to ultima, great to see you enjoy the server. Spread the word!
  5. Heretics, There is only one true Ultima God and it's senior avocado with sombrero :
  6. You also might want to get a spread needle.
  7. Hello and welcome to ultima!
  8. I'd also type a wall of text if there weren't already a lot of great stories written out and if I wasn't at work (lol). My story is pretty similar to Soly's although I already was into programming before I joined this server. I think the biggest impact ultima has made on my life is making me meet my wonderful girlfriend whom I live together with now. I've seen a lot of people come and go on this server but I'm still in touch with several veterans of this game (mainly other staff members). I remember failing a couple of exams after discovering this server right before the study period haha, but I still made it in the end. No regrets! Good luck with your story. (I'm 25 now if you want to know)
  9. Nice to see everyone co-operate to find the goodies. Keep up the good work.
  10. Yeah, high level player can easily farm those units (and even better, the heavenly variants). You should try to collect a few PDs and trade them for a basic set of those units if you want to go through the game faster/easier. But that can also take away part of the fun
  11. Even I got trolled with that 'newb trap' 7 years ago when I started my adventure here. To me it remains one of the classic dumb jokes everyone has had to be fooled by at least once. See it like an initiation to the PSOBB community haha. It all depends on how you seriously you take it. Although having it happen right before your first epic boss battle is kinda harsh, hehe...
  12. @Uxie They sometimes appear in the armor shop on pioneer2. Each time you enter pioneer2 he sells you different gear. Some players telepipe back and forth to look for a good 4 slot frame. Which frame it is does not matter much at lower levels.
  13. Once you get used to those, you won't want to play without them. Also make sure you have a frame that has 4 unit slots, so you can buff your character with strong units. I'm sure you can get a nice deal for a few heavenly/powers as they are easily farmable for high level players.
  14. Depending on the difficulty you are in the monsters will attack faster and faster. Perhaps try to buy a 'heavenly/battle' unit from somebody (should barely even cost you a PD). That will increase your attack speed and allow you to dodge more easily.
  15. Do a double combo instead of finishing a 3hit combo. You'll deal less damage but you will have a bigger dodge window.
