    I waited fifteen minutes on free play wifi, waiting for the matchmaking to take place, but nothing happened. The game was not frozen, as I could back out of matchmaking and do something else.

    Is this related to the game being so new, or matchmaking being crap?
    I really want to know, since noone I know has Wifi or this game, and I can't seem to be online at the same time as people i've met on the internet.... [​IMG] ...And I kind of got this game for the Wifi, too.....

    Probably the fact that the game is new.

    I thought that you could connect with Japanese players as well? That doesn't really make sense... I have the same problem as you, so I'm not much help right now. Sorry!

    You can connect to Jap players too, as you can with most Wi-Fi DS games, so it doesn't make sense.

    You sure it's not the issue that some cards have where they can't connect to Retail or CycloDS users?

    New AKAIO loader possibly has all the patches needed since it connects with JP, EN, even XPA patched R4s now.

    Yeah I don't know the problems R4 users (who use the latest official R4 patch) get with the game, so I couldn't tell ya.

    The wifi works and connects to all sorts of people with everything else.

    BTW, what's an XPA patched R4?

    There's types of groups like
    Group A: Cyclods and legit cards
    Group B: All the other kinds of flashcarts

    To fix this so the other flashcarts can play with Group A you need to patch it using
    Bahamut's Patch: http://filetrip.net/f8673-Phantasy-Star-O-...-Patch-1-0.html
    or
    Xenophobia: http://filetrip.net/f8660-Phantasy-Star-O-Crack-Fix-1-0.html
    This fixed the matchmaking problem in fact im playing with random people now
    because of this patch
    (both of these patches have a logo or pic in beginning of the game just press a to continue)

    So with latest akaio loader and acekard2i+1.5, you can connect to cycloDS/retail carts with the UNPATCHED rom? Am I right?

    That's weird...
    I did managed to connect with random people without patching my game file (I use an original R4 with 1.18, btw), although it seems i can't anymore, but I just associate the problem to lack of people online...

    For some reason I have tried both the patches and neither allow me to matchmake well, the most players I have had has been 1 with me.
