I've recently started playing PSO on my dreamcast for the first time (Version 2 NTSC-U). Offline or Online, when I go to exit the game and save, I am unable to save, which results in the character inventory being lost. I get the message "Attempt to save was unsuccessful". I am presented with options to "Save." (retry saving), and "Exit without Saving". Suffice it to say, retrying no matter how many times never works.
Has anyone experienced this and know a solution? I've tried different VMUs.
For what it's worth, I play using a terra onion MODE (my GD-ROM drive died ages ago), and I'm using a shared SNAK (I can't, so far, find a copy of the game for a reasonable price that I can trust to have an OEM case with the SNAK printed on it; I'd love to register it so I could just play online and save via the Sylverant server!).
Thanks for any thoughts you might be able to share. I look forward to getting online with those of you that still play PSO!
