What's the difference between DAT and SQL? I'm assuming the only noticable difference is DAT handles drop rates in txt files while SQL uses .sgl.
Nope.
Both DAT and SQL use the text files for drops, the gsl stuff was a thing I ended up doing later on when I got tired of the text files.
The difference between dat and sql is that one stored the data on binary files while the other stores the data in an sql database (which requires a mysql server)

Thank you for the clarification, that makes LOADS more sense. Is there any benefits for a solo player to use SQL for a server other than the convience of not having to edit text files?

You'd still have to edit text files for the drops, for both SQL and DAT.
Soly's ItemRT login server uses a gsl file for drops instead of the text files, with a much easier way to understand the data (provides a GUI, life saver :p)

Most people here (including Sodaboy) would recommend the SQL version. The DAT version doesn't get all that much support.
I guess it depends on how you intend to use it.

Unless I'm going blind, I can't locate a way to set up my controller.
How do I set up my controller through this? I'm not seeing it anywhere in options.

Just wanted to say a big thank you for popping the files up here after a few silly mistakes, got the server all hosted and running smoothly. This should make learning sql and data basing a little more fun. Thanks again if only this was around back in 00's would of saved me my pocket money back then. : )
 
Has anybody had any luck running the server on a *nix environment with wine?
The patch server and login server appear to work, but the ship just idles at "loading configuration from ship.ini". Not sure if I'm just doing something wrong or if there's an API that wine can't emulate.

I attempted to do some debugging. Read the source code, didn't see anything that looks problematic, but I can't attach a debugger or recompile with extra print statements without a windows machine.

I have the latest version of the servers compiling fine, but I am lost as to patching the client to point to my server - pso.gameplayer.club - anyone point me to steps or provide a patched version for that? Thx!

Ok I was told to search for 127.0.0.1 and replace all those with the IP of my server. Patched it and is that all I need to do?

Hi all!

I know this will seem a bit of a stretch but could someone make a video tutorial on how to really set up a server?

It would make getting things set up so much simpler for those (including myself) that just want to get a quick private server to play with a couple of friends.

I have everything downloaded and tried for the life of me to follow the tutorial but a lot of the steps need some thorough explanations. It just doesn't make any sense. It would be a bit easier to see it done in a step by step video.

I know this is a lot to ask but would greatly appreciate if someone down the timeline could make a video!

Thanks all!

Maybe this can be of help to you? Watch the first 5-6 minutes, it's without comment but shows everything needed to be done.

Hey The1stOne.

So I actually downloaded and installed the game but I was referring to getting all that MySQL stuff installed and set up correctly and getting a video up regarding that. As it's super confusing what to do!

But I do appreciate the video link!
