    I've always been terrible with them. So I figured maybe people can add the one's they know on PSO to help me and probably other people feel a little less confused

    omg speaking of res... can we just like stop doing that and use passwords instead? New players generally don't know what it means and even in my open games everyone asks "res?" and it's just annoying dealing with everything.

    I know everyone is gonna use it more now and that's ok 8)

    Putting passwords on, typing passwords in and letting everyone know the password is annoying. I always put res on my games and 4/5 times people don't join unless they are supposed to. (Passworded games used to crash me) I agree that beginners won't know what res means but after a couple times joining res'd games, they will for the rest of their time here.
    Sometimes players just put RESERVED as game name which I'm sure works well.
    Ofc if you password your games, then that is probably better and good for you x) - I'm just not going to start doing it.
    Every time I see someone join a res'd game on accident, the OP are very polite in notifying them that the game is reserved.

    Res is easier for me if I'm in a game that has someone who's GC I don't have joining. Instead of playing telephone with in-game PMs, I can just res it until that person arrives, then start. Ez pz.

    just have a static password for all your games with friend groups and then a generic one for everyone else

    setting "1" as your password is very effective at stopping people from joining your game if you don't want them to and people are polite enough to not join a room even if you say "pass 1" in lobby to the person you're talking to

    Dunno what Choice Search is? On GC/Xbox, you were able to put in parameters in a box (stuff like, level, class, some other shit) and it'd return you a list of all players on the block (ship?) with those parameters, meaning you could search for peoples' GCs yourself without them being present.

    I never played GC/Xbox online, at least not for a long period of time. BB private servers were my first experience without using someone elses internet/gamecube to get online.
