Phantasy Star Online Episode I & II GameCube (2002) (Japan) Online Setup Guide v1.0 [September 15, 2002] written by Anthony Charles Ambrose (ACA) <[email protected]> Document ©2002. All Rights Reserved. Full legal notice at end. Check out: < http://www.timefall.com > TimeSplitters 2 Network (GCN, PS2, XBX) -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- Introduction -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- Many people have decided to import PSO, and now you can get online with the aid of this guide. Read it thoroughly.. Japanese is a very intimidating language for people who do not understand it. Good luck, be sure to follow these directions exactly as I write them. Any questions should be addressed to the GameFAQs message boards, not to my e-mail.. I already get too much e-mail every day (100s of messages), so I would not be able to respond anyway. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- Getting Online and Obtaining a Hunter's License -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- This guide is provided as a free service to anyone wanting to import Phantasy Star Online Episode I & II. By using this document, you agree that I am not responsible for anything that goes wrong while doing this. Read the legal section of this guide if necessary. In addition, I will not be answering questions on this guide.. I've outline everything I can possibly do here. If you have a correction, though, I'll take it. Problems can be addressed on the GameFAQs message board, not to me via e-mail. You may be wondering how to put in Japanese text? Use the game's built in keyboard. The very top button allows input of Kanji.. and pressing the R button will switch to Kana characters. The first step to going online will be to navigate the menus like so: OPTIONS menu -> Network Option -> Provider Option -> User Provider Now choose a memory card. Choose Slot A for the purpose this tutorial of else things might get dicey later. Choose the left option to confirm the slot. A prompt will come up, but you can close that. Again, another prompt will come up. Choose the left option and then close the next prompt that comes up. Now choose the the top option to set up your internet service provider (ISP). Choose the right option next, and name your ISP. Choose the right option once again to continue on. The next screen allows you to enter your details in this order: Your ISP Account Your User ID: Your Password: Your primary number you want to dial.. then your backups, obviously. After you enter all info, press Next button. The next two screens do not usually need to be changed.. skip them. Choose the far right option, of three choices, to save all your ISP settings. Now choose the top option. A critical step to playing online is buying your Hunter's License. Navigate through the menus, like so: OPTIONS menu -> Network Option -> Buy a HUNTER'S LICENSE -> User Provider Now, it will ask to use the slot A network information file. Answer yes, the option on the left. Then confirm the next screen that pops up. You will be given a choice now. The first option lets you purchase a Hunter's License, so you'll want to click the first option. Next, you'll be attempting to connect your modem online. The left option means yes, so choose it. Now it gets a little tricky, so read carefully. Proceed until you get to some option boxes. The very first option box allows you a free month of a Hunter's License. Make sure that is selected and then continue on, until you are given three command buttons to choose from. Choose the one on the left and continue on. On the next screen, enter your Serial Number first and then your Access Key second. I will not provide serial numbers or access keys, under any circumstances. If you e-mail asking for one, I will personally contact Sega in addition to banning you. Like every other prompt, after you've entered your serial and access, choose the left button. The next screen is long.. In order, from top to bottom, the boxes are as follows: Last name, then first name (Kanji) Last name, then first name (Kana) Your postal code (three numbers then four numbers) Your address Your telephone number (two numbers then four numbers then four numbers) Your day of birth, in international format (Year/Month/Day) Choose your sex: male or female Now input your e-mail address Continue on by clicking the left button.. If anything went wrong during the process, the game will ask you to correct the problem. So correct any problems and proceed. Now again choose the left button.. and then select the only button on the next screen. You've got yourself a Hunter's License, if all went well. If it did not, then do not e-mail me. Instead, ask at the GameFAQs message board. A good friend of mine worked hard to put this work up. It should be entirely accurate, but errors can occur. My friend did most of this work, but I compiled it for him. If you want to send letters of praise for this, you can e-mail it to me, but make sure you thank Benson in the mail. I'll give him the e-mails. I'd like to start by saying thanks Benson, without you, this would not exist. If you would like to contribute to this guide, let me know. Until then, good luck! I will update this guide as I see necessary, and I will hopefully make some other PSO guides.. who knows? -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- Copyright 2002 Anthony Charles Ambrose (ACA) [email protected] All rights reserved This document was created and maintained by ACA, its author.
