Turn DEP off for psobb.https://www.dell.com/support/article/uk/en/ukbsdt1/sln288643/what-is-data-execution-prevention-dep-?lang=en Whitelist the Ultima PSOBB folder so that your antivirus doesn't see it as harmful. Add it as a firewall exception or turn your firewall off. Set the launcher application to run as an administrator. This will allow you do download updates correctly. Restart your computer and then launch the game via the Launcher application. Change your DNS settings to Google’s on the Protocol Version 4https://www.windowscentral.com/how-change-your-pcs-dns-settings-windows-10 Re-download the game and latest updatehttps://www.phantasystaronline.net/forum/index.php?/downloads/ --- Name: Error 903 Cause: The login server is down or the server is under maintenance. (or you have no internet access) Symptoms: Unable to log in, people who are still online from before the login being down, will lose all their progress from the moment the login went down. Solution: Log out, try again later, check the forums for info. ---Name: Items turned into '???' Cause: Mostly occurs in the common bank/inventory. Symptoms: Some items will turn into '???' items and disconnect you. Solution: If its only one item, take it out of your bank and drop it, log out, login and bank all your items, then relog again. If this doesn't help, ask a GM. ---Name: Unsealing bugs | SOLVED Cause: The item you try to unseal has been found before the unsealing fix. Symptoms: Mags will turn back to level 5, weapons will lose their % or even go into negatives and the kills will randomly be 0 again. Solution: Bank your weapons with % and mags in your bank, take snapshots of the killcount (/killcount command). For the kills showing 0, drop the item and pick it up again. The place in your inventory affects the killcount command. Else ask a GM for help. Don't forget, on ultima unsealing weapons takes more kills to unseal then other servers. For ex. Limiters will need 4K more kills to show the 'use' option to unseal it. ---Name: Ghost items/players Cause: Error in the created game/lagg Symptoms: Dropped items will not be seen by other players, or will still be on the floor after being picked up. Solution: Take the items you can, and recreate a fresh room. ---Name: NPC glitch Cause: You took an unexisting NPC. Symptoms: Your character wont load and you won't be able to move in the lobby. Solution: Go in the dressing room (at the character selection screen) and change apearance to default. Type NPC/0 to be normal again. ---Name: Can't type username or password Cause: Wrong keyboard settings Symptoms: You won't be able to type anything at all at the login screen. Solution: http://www.phantasys...rd-to-chattype/ ---Name: Error at joining party Cause: Mostly caused by a connection error/program error Symptoms: You will get a message 'PSBB.exe has stopped working' and PSOBB will close. Or you see the city from a topview and can't do a thing. Solution: Hold 'alt' + 'backspace' to reset PSOBB, ask for the room to be recreated. ---Name: Error 100 Cause: Mostly caused by a bugged/hacked item. Might also be in common bank. Symptoms: You will get disconnected while doing stuff like, feeding a mag, unequipping an itemtake out an item from the bank, pick up your 30th item,... Solution: Browse trough your items to look for bugged ones, and follow the steps above to get rid of it. ---Name: Messed up title screen/graphics Cause: Wrong patch update. (like updating an old version with a new patch)http://img502.images...11812391246.png Solution: http://www.phantasys...__10#entry33853 or this : http://www.phantasys...itchy-graphics/ ---Name: Game won't launch Cause: The source folder is corrupted or files are missing (not in the same folder) Symptoms: The game won't launch, sometimes giving you an error. Solution: Redownload the source folder and make sure everything is in the correct map. You can always use a shortcut for the .exe. ---Name: Lag Cause: An issue with your internet connection/speed. Also caused by fog. Symptoms: The game will run very slow at several episodes/quests Solution: Check your internet connection, lower the resolution and game quality. Download an anti-fog skin. ---Name: Antivirus/firewall issue Cause: Antivirus/firewall acknowledges PSOBB.exe as a virus. Symptoms: Game won't run. Solution: http://www.phantasys...with-installer/ --- Name: Launcher unable to download updates Cause: Antivirus/firewall blocks the launcher's internet connection. Symptoms: The launcher fails to download an update with an error along the lines: "The underlying connection was closed" Solution: Whitelist the launcher under your firewall or antivirus that has any type of network scanning capabilities. You can also download the latest updates manually from the downloads page. ---Name: Merge swapped | SOLVED Cause: Common bank doesn't like merges lol Symptoms: Any merge put into the common bank has a chance to be replaced by another, mostly razonde merge. Solution: Take pictures of your merge and trade it back with a GM. ---Name: 1/2 drop never drops | SOLVED Cause: When a droprising event is going on, all drops who go higher then 1/1 won't drop. Example : a 3X event on a 1/2 drop = 3/2 so it won't drop. Symptoms: Rare monsters won't drop their 1/2 drops. Solution: Wait to hunt those after events, they are still 'easy' to get, as the appearance rate of rare monsters is high on ultima. ---Name: Mag evolution messed up Cause: Wrong character/ID reference from the mag Symptoms: http://www.phantasys...2804#entry32804 Solution : Log in and out, has a slight chance to resolve the problem. Needs to be resolved in the binaries. This will normally prevent the bug from happening : http://www.phantasys...8132#entry48132 ---Name: Huge amount of stackable items/meseta Cause: The common bank bugs these things Symptoms: Meseta, monomates, PDs and such will be multiplied by a very high number. ex. 2344523X Monomates Solution : Get the items that are valuable to you out of the bank, and make a topic for a request for a bankswipe. Remeber, bug abuse can get you banned. ---Name: Forum inaccessible Cause: Error with the SQL database | Queries not executed correctly or no connection to SQL database. Symptoms: U will get this image : http://img7.imagesha...40/sqlerror.png Solution : Refresh the page, try again later. More info here : http://www.phantasys...__10#entry35992 ---Name: Banked items, dc and 'lost' them Cause: bad sync between client and server (bad connection ? ) Makes the storing pointer messing up. Symptoms: While banking several items, your game will dc and when you log back in, the items are 'gone'. Solution: Look in your bank, u will have stored the first items of your invent instead of the items you wanted. Else there might have been a rollback and then, nothing you can do about it. ---Name: Can't invite new team member Cause: Player is writing a message/ looking at something with f12 Symptoms: You will 'fail' at the inviting Solution: Let him close all his menus, and try again. Reloading blocks could also help. --- Name: - ERROR CODE 2 Cause: Missing files/blocked patcher by antivirus/firewall Symptoms: You'll get an error message upon starting the game (Error 2) Solution: Disable your antivirus while downloading/updating the client and installer. More info here : http://www.phantasystaronline.net/forum/index.php?/topic/6760-error-code-2/?hl=error --- Name: Game starts up after pressing start, but closes in a split second Cause: A wrong resolution is selected in the game options. Symptoms: The game will try to draw the game rectangle but will crash cause the resolution is too far off. Solution: In the launcher, go to >options>resolutions and try to change it to one that is supported for you. --- Name: Game patches over and over Cause: You're not using the online.exe or not as administrator mode Symptoms: Your game will keep patching over and over and create a .pat file in your PSOBB root folder. Solution: Run online.exe as administrator and/or rename the PsoBB.exe to PsoBBbackup.exe and the PsoBB.pat to PsoBB.exe --- Name: Invisible walls and floor Cause: You probably have a software like Raptr or part of AMD Catalyst software that will interfere with PSO's graphics Symptoms: You walls and floor will be almost invisible Solution: Disable the software described in the cause Still have a problem?
