In Phantasy Star Online Episode III: C.A.R.D. Revolution a strangely powerful Photon-like substance found on Planet Ragol has spurred a raging battle between the Hunters and a rebel team called the Arkz. The prized matter known as "The Germ" has unique replicating powers and can be sealed in small playing-card-sized packets. Warriors carrying a deck of the sought-after cards can then bring unprecedented amounts of destructive weapons and creatures into battle. Fight with the Hero Hunters or on the rebels' Dark Side and stack your decks accordingly. You'll compose several powerful decks from nearly 500 cards featuring fighting moves, weapons, and PSO creatures.



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.

Black Video

FMV cutscenes such as the intro on creating a new commander appear black unless the External Frame Buffer is enabled and set to Real. Fixed by 5.0-5874.

r7458 Windows 7 Intel Core i7-870 @ 2.93GHz AMD Radeon HD 6870 [PAL] Perfect, I've beat the entire game at 100% speed. No text/texture/music bug or desync. Sojiro seta
3.0-189 Windows 7 AMD Phenom II X4 B60 @ 3.3GHz AMD Radeon HD 6770 [PAL] Game is completely playable at full speed, however certain letters of a conversation will occasionally not appear. For example, "Ou" instead of "You". No texture or desync bugs though. Only works on Direct X 9, Direct X 11 displays a white screen past the license agreement. I fixed the text problem by enabling accurate text cache. Krigo
