Phantasy Star Online Episode I & II Trial Edition, a combination of the Dreamcast releases Phantasy Star Online and Phantasy Star Online ver2. A demo of the online RPG, its focus is online gameplay with a strong offline storyline, offering diverse online and offline gameplay.
The game requires a modem to play, even offline, refer . Both the 'dummy' and Broadband Adapter will not work since the BBA was not available at the time of the game's release, and Dolphin only emulates the BBA, and not the modem. Since neither setting currently works, the game will get stuck at a screen which reads:
This screen can be bypassed with the following game patch:
At the beginning of the game, when the game asks if you want to go to the Calendar Screen, choosing Yes makes the game freeze. You can avoid this by simply selecting No instead. If you need to adjust the date and time, you can do so in your computer's settings, or if that is not possible, the Advanced tab of Dolphin's configuration.
Scenes that play video appear black unless the External Frame Buffer is enabled and set to Real and Scaled EFB Copy is disabled. Setting the Internal Resolution to 1x reduces image shaking. Fixed with Hybrid XFB in.
