There are a few PSO topics scattered about already, but I figured I should post a new one in order to garner more attention. For a while now I've been wanting to try and play PSO on a regular basis. Since SCHTHACK turned to SCHT with their DRM-laden exes, the community, if there ever was one, has fractured irreparably over several smaller servers (each with their unique brand of forced shit), moved on to PSO2 or quit altogether. Tethealla is a simple Windows-based server you can run on your own machine and it works great, but I'd also like to have people to play the game with. People who actually want to play PSO. (I tried this as an experiment with friends a while ago with dwindling results.) So I come to you with a humble question: How many of you would actually be interested in us hosting our own PSOBB server and playing the game on a regular basis? By which I mean, get together once every week (or every other week) over Steam or Skype or whatever, set up the game and enjoy a few hours of pure photon fun. The server would not need to be running 24/7, since the whole point is playing the game together as a group instead of power-leveling in single player mode, so what I'm really looking for is commitment. Commitment to a schedule and actual desire to get together and enjoy the game as a team. Stuff I can bring to the table: I have my own personal exe and text mods that fix some of the notorious mistranslations and also the syntax/formatting errors introduced by the SCHTSERV staff when porting over the JP client (such as item description boxes and technique disk names); it's a work in progress that I keep tweaking whenever I find stuff that warrants fixing. I could host the server myself, but since I have a dynamic IP, that'd force everyone to do hosts file trickery every now and then.
