    PSZ has anti-piracy, you cannot play with out people that are using LEGIT RETAIL cards... not online or wireless.

    Fix soon?

    Both on Xenophobia and Bahamut do not work.

    What problem did you have? I haven't heard of any problems with it before...
    And while playing around with the game it seemed like I would be able to play no problem (was able to search for games).

    The people you are playing with are most likely other card users like us...

    I tried playing w/ my friend and it didn't work xD

    Do you notice how LONG it takes to find someone online?

    Atleast for me xD

    I think that's partly to do with the blazing fast WiFi that the DS has... It's just so fast that you think it's slow.

    This what I found about using the crack patch.
    You need to use the cracked version if you want to play online with friends. We done some major testing yesterday and we found that using a version that is clean does not allow you to see everyone on your friend list. Everyone seems to get split into 2 groups:

    Group 1
    Cyclo DS Evolution / Official Game Users

    Group 2
    All other flashcard users

    We found this out by people using different flashcards and we couldn't see each other online. The cyclo ds users couldnt see the R4/G6/M3 users and vice versa. Using the cracked version on the R4/G6/M3 flash cards allowed them to be seen by the official/cyclo ds users.

    Is this a Wi-Fi Problem? Because if it is a Wi-Fi Problem on BAHAMUT version of the Game, then you're in luck. There's already a crack for the game that Passed the Wi-Fi Problem. [The Problem was that even though you can connect to Wi-Fi and have Friend Codes AND joined a party, the People would not show up as online when it's supposed to say online if that person was online.] Ah, sorry, but I forgot the Link for the patch :l

    Does this mean Cyclo users do not need to patch and should see everyone (who is connecting on correctly)? If Cyclo users patched their game, can they see R4/G6/M3 users who have not patched their games?

    How about Acekards?

    So the XPA version does allow to play online with all the people, both legit and flashcarted ones?

    In that case... is there any nointro patch for the XPA release? I've been playing the Bahamut one because of that [​IMG]

    The cyclo ds evo user do not need the crack. Only the others R4/G6/M3 users.

    Bahamut's Patch: http://filetrip.net/f8673-Phantasy-Star-O-...-Patch-1-0.html
    Xenophobia: http://filetrip.net/f8660-Phantasy-Star-O-Crack-Fix-1-0.html

    I'd suggest getting Bahamut's ROM/Patch as it seems XPA is not only incompetent and releases a bad ROM, but will downplay that fact AND bash Bahamut:
    If it affected nothing and was 100% playable, then why did so many people have issue with the ROM?


    Nope.. Both cards need a patch for online play with Non-Cyclo(?) cards.
    XPA's just has that crappy intro.

    Bahamut patch tested with friend that has legitimate card: NOT WORKING, DOES NOT WORK XPA IS INDEED RIGHT
    Xenophobia patch tested with friend that has legitimate card: WORKS [​IMG] the stupid intro is not really a bother xD.

    legitimate card meaning the real retail copy from USA...

    enjoy!

    The BAHAMUT patch is based off of the Xenophobia patch. It even still has the Xenophobia cracktro. If it didn't work, you did something wrong.

    Good to see I don't need to bother with any patching for my CycloDS. Getting my money's worth, at least.

    The last person who asked this was ignored [​IMG]

    So I'll ask it again for him since I want to know too;

    Can ACEKARD users play with legit (and cyclo DS) cart owners with an unpatched (clean) Rom?
    Was ANY of the testing done with an acekard?
