I have a DreamPi on the way and am looking forward to Playing Phantasy Star Online actually online for the first time ever soon. I have beaten the game a couple times offline, and still have the memory card for the character I used. The problem is I do not have the Dreamcast I played it on, nor do I have a way to get the serial number or key that was used on the Dreamcast this character was made on (if it was even legit) The game sees the characters but won't load them.
I actually was not aware this was a thing as I had made the character on a friends system, and then later bought it off him (this was over 15 years ago now). Had I known I would not have gotten rid of that system (the drive had died, so I got a working one)
Long story short, I want to save this character and use it on this system. Is there really no way around this issue? Is this not something that can be hacked like everything else?
