Phantasy Star Online: Blue Burst

Official, unmodified 1.24.3 US client. Compatible with both of Fuzziqer's servers (Khyller and Aeon/newserv). The game's anti-cheating rootkit is bypassed through the use of his game launcher. Both the server and launcher were open-sourced.

Selected Test Results

What works

Installation of official game client
Launching the game
Registering your UserId and Password
Character creation (up to naming your character)
Character selection (when using a pre-existing character)

This test was run from a compiled 1.3.29 build directory and run against Khyller 2.9d.

What does not

When creating a character you are unable to type a name even though the esc, return, and arrow keys work (used for navigating the menus). The user was previously able to type a username and password at the game's main screen.
If you have a pre-existing character on the server and select it the game hangs after a page fault during the 'bursting' screen with the text 'Connecting..' in the bottom left corner.


What was not tested

Patch server download, ship/lobby select, and in-game play.

Additional Comments

Typing a character name worked briefly until I pressed the esc key to return to the previous screen. Ever since then typing has always failed. (Bug #27293) Bug #12964 (page fault) is still present. Last line logged before the crash was: fixme:d3d8:ValidatePixelShader (0x2d05340 (nil) 1 0xf9e388): stub
