Just wanted to point out that dupes and hacks are completly different, some people dont realize that yet, so im here to explain.

A dupe does not change the percentages of weapons, most people think this so here ill break it down for you =D

A dupe is just a copy of a legit, or hacked item.

A hack can change the percentages of a item, using a USB memory card.

Thank you,
Kyo

People always think that % makes an item a dupe, and now that you (with all your experience) have shed some light upon them to understand that %s don't always mean an item is a dupe. Keep posting threads like these if you can, they seem to get good feedback.

Same here.

On a side note, I'd like to add that percents can be added legitimantly by getting some data in the West Tower quest for Pagini (The man you give photon drops, remember?) And he'll add percents to your weps of your choice.

Photon Drop = 5% of any attribute
Photon Sphere = 30% of any attribute

Don't be fooled, you can't raise hit. So if someone claims to have risin the hit legitmantly..thats impossible.

it must be otherwise 6 pd would be = to 1 photon sphere

its 99pd to a ps, right?

Ivan

Yes Ton your right. So just stick with using photon drops. Bacause in the end. if you do the math right, you'll waste more photon drops trying to make a sphere.

except for that thing where u give him pd or ps and he gives u a random item out of several items, i think pss or better.

Gallon's Shop? And he only exchanges Photon Drops for random Items

yeah he doesnt accept PS's, only PD's. He gives you a PS when you give him 99 PD's. Maybe thats what youre thinking.

People always moan and groan about dupes. Thank you for posting the differences between the two so people will see that dupes are not the spawn of Satan. I don't use hacks and the dupes I have are just emergency backups.

well you dont lose your items in FSOD anymore just your money. But still you do lose EVERYTHING in FSODX (corruption). I hate it when people think im illegit just because of backups, as i said, my life isnt any easier fromt them right now...

I use the technique.
i.e. open the disc cover
pull out memory card
THEN turn off
It's saved my ass loads of times

yeah thats the very same method ive posted here at one time or another. But now its unneccessary as you only lose your money.

Yes you do lose your items. People seem to have problems understanding that there are different kinds of FSODs.

If you FSOD when first entering a lobby, then you will only lose meseta, but if you FSOD at another time (mid-game, re-entering lobby etc.) then you will lose all of your unequipped items.

Ivan

What do you mean by re-entering a lobby? Like transferring to a different one?

well you cant really fsod mid game, but youre right, if you turn off the game without saving mid game you lose all unequipped stuff

you can. ive fsod in vol opt v.2 thats how i lost my first spread needle.
ive found another two since then, with the same character, i kept the 2nd, and, i promised the next to my friend. guess what? it dropped, and he got it with hit arggghhhhh... 30 to be exact.

ive lost twin psychos before as well, but i searched and found. theyre my favorite weapon out of any in the game!

thats really rare then and its probably a sign in your GC or disk. On any GC game, if it freezes it makes that BEHHHHHHH noise that you get in FSOD. And its the same affect as turning off the game without saving while online. In the year and a half ive been online, thats never once happened to me, and ive corrupted twice!
