    I get "an error has occurred" and it tells me to restart my gamecube refer to my manual. The compatibility list says it works?

    There are 3 different versions of PSO 1&2. Try using HashCalc to verify your specific .iso version against the info I posted below.

    If your .iso doesn't match any of these 3 versions then you may have a bad dump. If it DOES match, then it could be just a problem with that specific version of the game.

    Phantasy Star Episode 1&2 (ver 1.00)

    MD5 = 478bf75c63d6ff30315c9b34cee288ab
    SHA1 = d6b591ddc34e689d6792fa5190feda88e969c041
    CRC32 = 25b0368b

    Phantasy Star Episode 1&2 (ver 1.01)
    MD5 = 81724d71a2143a4fccf49020737d3add
    SHA1 = 2b7eda3e2f7bdc7479f803684a590992377a4617
    CRC32 = 98e98759

    Phantasy Star Episode 1&2 Plus (ver 1.02)
    MD5 = 36a7f90ad904975b745df9294a06baea
    SHA1 = 0ff155311f4cc57951c03baeb1a8cc15de5fe1cd
    CRC32 = cdc9bc9a

    If I'm not mistaken it also needs to be 1 & 2 Plus (v1.02). I don't think 1.00/1.01 work.

    Anothing big thing: you must tell it "NO" on the calendar set screen.

    PSO tends to corrupt saves from my experience with Dreamcast and Gamecube. Not that often but once is enough: Lost quite a few characters that were over level 100, one was close to level 200 even >.<

    Now, I use Dolphin instead where I can backup the saves and even savestates easily. With the help of savestates, I seldom have to quit the game.
    Only problem is: sometimes quit and save doesn't work - I just make a savestate right before quitting, backup the savestate and game save as a pair, memorize something unique to the character (level, exp, unique weapons etc).
    Reboot and check, if anything wrong, just reload the savestate and game save pairs and repeat. (it is important to backup the savestate and game save as a pair - PSO checks the game save against the memory copy, if they don't match, PSO refuses to save).

    Of course, with Nintendont, you can also backup the game saves but is not as easy as drag and drops in PC.

    Hmm. I obtained a copy of Phantasy Star Online Episode I & II Plus. It still didn't work. I disabled most of the settings (widescreen, progressive patch, etc) and it booted! Then I tried booting it again and it didn't work. Haven't been able to play this damn game since my disc drive went on my Wii.

    What does it do when you run it? Are you telling it you don't want to check/change the date and time settings?

    Your ISO could be corrupted, too. Check the MD5 hash for it.

    So I just recently tried to play this with nintendont and I was not aware that you were supposed to tell it no when it asked about the date and I told it yes what do I have to do to reset or get it to work now

    Just restart the game and tell it you don't want to change the date/time. You might have to delete the game save file for it as well but I'm not sure. PSO is very picky when it comes to patches and whether the game ISO is valid or not. Again, make sure the MD5 for it matches.
