A few month ago, we asked player wich game they liked the most between PSU and PSO2. This was to know if it would wort working on it. As PSU already have the Clementine project and also beacause of the lack of logs ( ok there is 9gb of logs… but they dont have much info to create a full server), PSO 2 is a better option. Since its still online, the project can aim to a full support beafor sega close it. There is much to cover and it will certainly take some time to complete it. This project will first focus on the main part of the game as quest, lobby, shops. Other less importent part will get some work done over the time.
The test server
First i would like to congrat the player that found a PSO2 passport and has gain access to the test phase!
The goal of this phase is to test the various mecanics behind the game beafor filling all the data. This is to avoid filling all and then fix stuff and break the filled data… PSO2 is almost 100% server side, all the game does is to tell what the player want to do, everything else is done server side wich make it long and hard to complete but at the same time allow us to add/edit stuff without editing the client.
For the test time, the sega version will be used, this also mean that after a sega update the server might not work. There is a 50% chance they change something preventing the game to work on this server, lately they like to change the quest stuff (list format, start information, etc). I would say that after a day the server should be fixed to work with the new update.
How to connect
First you need an account, this was open to anyone by using the PSO2 Passport items droping on PSOBB in December.
Next you need to download and install PSO2, if not done already! You can get an english installer here: http://arks-layer.com/setup.php
Once done you need to install PSO2 Tweaker aviable here: http://arks-layer.com/index.php
Finaly you need to setup the “proxy” to connect. To do so, go in the Tweaker menu-> Other Tasks -> Configure PSO2Proxy
and enter the fallowing url: http://www.schtserv.com/pso2/config.json
Your done and ready to play! To connect on sega use the Tweaker menu-> Other Tasks -> revert PSO2Proxy to jp
*since the new version it might be possible to have 2 copy of the tweaker in diferent folder and use 1 for Schtserv and the other for sega
Note: If you like the Tweaker and the english patch dont forget to drop a litle donation on theire website!
