Even in your thread posting about that Xiden a few if us here discovered we in fact had the correct crystal on our GDEMU clones. Mrneo240 and I at least had verified them, can't remember if others did as well. I checked with my jewelers loop eye glass as it was pretty small text printed on them. Only some supposed early ones were that way.

As far as the firmware yeah it is v1.5.

Uh, 1.5? The first update was for v5.2, and the current firmware is v5.15. That's not even within the numbering scheme. :lol:

Touché. :lol:

But I think it was probably becasue of my responding to dave here lol. Then everybody else responded and it snowballed.

Aleron Ives wrote:PSO is very picky about the system state when you launch the game, and if the homebrew menu doesn't "clean up" after itself before launching the game, it breaks PSO. Typical symptoms are being able to walk through certain objects that should be solid, not being able to use Techniques on teammates, not being able to use Rafoie at all, and possibly random crashing. You also can't play Battle mode rules, because the time limit will instantly expire. (GDMENU still doesn't work with Battle mode, AFAIK.) Using the Utopia boot disc with PSO will cause these problems, too.

BlueCrab fixed these problems with the PSO loader by ditching KOS and rewriting the loader from scratch. Since the PSO boot disc is simple, this approach was easier than trying to fix KOS. It's unlikely that DreamShell will be rewritten, and nobody knows what KOS is doing wrong, so the odds of PSO getting fixed on DreamShell aren't great.


Tested Battle Mode on DreamShell today and it worked fine so that's good. Not sure if it worked on the old loader but it's working great on the new one. So really the only major bug left is the inability to use tech on other players.
