Is duping a good thing or a bad thing? Post your views here and take part in the poll.

In my opinion, I cant stand it. I think everyone knows that by now :p. I was trying to find a Last Survivor to trade, and some girl give me one. Later on she decided to give me a Dark Flow and some other weapon. After that, I knew that they were all dupes, I had to get rid of them so I sold them in the shop :). 10 meseta, great price for some duped weapons.

Anyway enough of my talk, its your turn to put forward you views :)

Hmmm only i voted no to duping.

I can't stand duping Evreywere I go I see someone duping.
I go into a game and you see one of the best weapons at the max as well as millions of other really rare stuff.

I try and trade with someone they put up loads of dark flows photon spheres and black king bars.

I try and organise a anti duping clan.
But people just say "no your wrong duping is good when we get FSOD" and "OMFG DUPING RULLZ U SUX"
Now evreyone just insults me.

That is why I'm not into dupes.
Maybe when they make C.A.R.D There will be some respect and no cheats.

10-08-2003, 09:58 PM
Yes duping sucks. But I think that as long as they stay away from my games I don't care that they do. As long as it doesn't harm me, do what you want.

10-08-2003, 10:54 PM
Duping is just wrong i dont agree with taking adavantage of glitchs heck im opposed to cheating in general!

10-08-2003, 10:57 PM
I think every1 will know i voted no to dupin! Everything said is true, everywhere u go, duping is taking place, for example someone was in a lobby the other day walking around askin if they duped? Person came up2 me, made him wish hed neva seen me, gave him an earfull!! kept followin him round!!!:D

Dupers suck, ill b glad whe episode 3 is released, that is if SEGA can keep to their promises of no more dupin, or less dupin at least! And i know for sure my cousin thinks exactly the same way!!

Dam them, dam them all!! Mind u lookin from the poll, its equal between no and yes! How come the yes people havent posted here?!?!

11-08-2003, 07:50 PM
Duping has a good side but you arent looking for it!

Dupping mats is bad sure and dupping things for others is
Honestly I dont care about dupes/dupping as long as people keep it to themselves. Let them **** up themselves and noone elses!

I dupe but only for important things like money if i get low and cant play anymore. Or maybe to help stay alive against a boss with scape dolls.I dont trade nemore anyways because of dupping. I have doubles in case i lose one. I guess ill admit it again i do dupe but i dont for others, and i guess if im banned for this, so be it, its life and your not goin to be perfect everywhere.

11-08-2003, 10:24 PM
lol, i suppose its ok if u keep it 2 ureself, but there r always many who take it one step further and spread it, like a virus.

If u keep it 2 ureself, thats ok, ure not ruinin any1 elses gameplay experience, so im not complainin about that, not that i do it of course, i just keep constantly diein, gettin there eventualy!

11-08-2003, 10:34 PM
I just dont like duping over all. If I loose a weapon, Ill try get it again. And I certainly dont like playing with people who cheat, as it can get very irritating. I'd say more but I cant find the words at this time :rolleyes:. And like it was said previously, why havent the people who voted for duping posted?

12-08-2003, 12:23 PM
Come on Dupers, post here, we wont bite, we may moan, but you dont have to listen!!

12-08-2003, 12:38 PM
Lol. We wont bite, hard anyway :p jk. Just want to hear all your views

12-08-2003, 02:20 PM
So I dupe,but I'm offline,and don't worry,if u bite I'l just kill u with my god hands:p

12-08-2003, 04:01 PM
lmao if you lost your bkb would you have to get a blue-black stone and another mkb all over again?

Im not trying to talk you into it but tht would suck.

12-08-2003, 04:08 PM
We wouldn't get a bkb probably in the first place. We have to make do with Stag Cutlery.
We wouldn't lose anything special that we can't get again. If we actually come across anything worth 11/12*, I don't think it would leave our characters hands.

12-08-2003, 04:13 PM
Or you could be carefull and deposit your stuff then go online into a game and take it out so if you get fsod with nothin what do you lose? nothin! then you deposit and then go to another game and stay tht way. Just thought of tht so i guess may hell be with dupping!

12-08-2003, 04:19 PM
Just dupe the rare,save in another mem. card and if u lose it/get corrupted u'l have it back.

12-08-2003, 04:21 PM
I have already done tht I have 3 mem cards of pso data because of having 10 characters.:D

12-08-2003, 05:27 PM
I'm not sure about what it is exactly, especially because i got the game saturday and have not a very clear idea about it. But I'm not planning to do that. Because I have played the game with my own efforts i do not plan to take value from the effort ive been doing.

12-08-2003, 07:40 PM
Like most, I don't really care if people dupe, it's their loss in a sense. It cheapens the game for their friends that they give the items to. takes the accomplishment out of your finds, and cheapens the value of your trades.
Just the same, the people I hook up with aren't into duping, so I'm uneffected by those who do.

Ive actually started doing that, depositing all of my stuff into my account b4 leaving an online game if ive been playing with complete strangers, and something smells fishy, im not taking any risks over whats already happened to me many times!

13-08-2003, 10:51 AM
Just one question I need to know! How do you backup your data to a different memory card? Since you cant copy the files directly onto the other memory card from the memory card screen, I cant think of any other way you can do it :(. I dont wana get corrupted of FSOD again, so it would be very helpful if I had a backup :)

13-08-2003, 01:44 PM
omg i dont know this one!:eek: Sry Zero wish i knew too. :/ Hey decs! any thoughts on this one?

13-08-2003, 02:19 PM
MAN thatd wud b handy, its a shame u cant backup ure files on the memory card screen on the gamecube. Theres no real way of doin it as far as i can c, but if any1 new how 2, theyd b my hero!!!

13-08-2003, 04:19 PM
If you're using an official memory card, it's too late as far as I know. If you had started on a USB memory card then you could transfer your characters to a PC.

Unless someone brings out a memory card adaptor for the GC, you will just have to hope that your don't get corrupted. If you are afraid of losing items, you can just transfer them to a lvl 1 char on another memory card and not use that memory card. Easy to make sure items are safe, not characters.

13-08-2003, 04:22 PM
Damn :mad:. I would have to get the official one didnt I? And whats a USB Memory Card, sounds very nice :).

13-08-2003, 04:49 PM
its when you can dupe 230 of one item in simply seconds.

But few people are fortunate enough to do this because usb cards are very expensive.

But you couldsave your self from corruption with this method of dupping Ill have to explain part of the usb dupping procdess so i think if you wanna know how to save yourself you should e-mail me. I dont want ne trouble with sol.

13-08-2003, 08:02 PM
U can back-up when the gamecube gameshark is out.
BTW back up it's part of one of the most used dupe methods.

13-08-2003, 08:03 PM
I suppose you refer to shop dupping

13-08-2003, 08:05 PM
He's referring to UBS cheating. That has been out for far longer than the widely used shop duping which has (comparatively) recently method.

13-08-2003, 08:07 PM
If you look i have referd to tht but it requires part of the dupping method and i do not wish to get in trouble with sol so i said e-mail me if you wanna know how to back urself up.

13-08-2003, 08:10 PM
I haven't posted about how to dupe. I have said the commonly used names of these methods and even if you see the name, I have not given instructions on how to dupe. How else would I refer to them. Method A and B? Anyway. Back on topic :):confused:

13-08-2003, 10:21 PM
Is this memory card ure on about the Flash Memory Card or sumin where u plug a card into the memory card, or sumin like that?!

14-08-2003, 12:32 AM
Ahhhh, I know them. There starting to sell them in school next year for 20 if you need them. You jus plug them into the USB port of your computer and you can upload info from them. There really tiny aswell. Never knew you could use them for PSO Saves. Before I get all hyped up about it, is this the right thing what Im talking about?

14-08-2003, 12:33 AM
Those mem cards...
I heard they get corruption/problems with PSO frequently.

14-08-2003, 10:33 PM
I think theyre in sale in Japan, mayb US, im not sure, imgonna go on a hunt for em 2moz!!

15-08-2003, 02:02 PM
Well,I think they get a higher percent of corruption with FSOD.

15-08-2003, 02:49 PM
Same from what Ive heard. Ive heard that sometimes with 3rd Party Memory Cards, with PSO data, it can just simply dissapear :(. Bit messed up. There a memory card that my mate bought from Currys for the Gamecube. Because they werent going to sell anymore Gamecube stuff it was extremely cheap. 1 memory card, 1000 sumthin blocks on it :eek:. First one to geuss the right price gets a pat on the head :D.

15-08-2003, 05:53 PM
Ill prove tht nintendo mem cards are better. when i got an FSOD while it was saving, I turned the game back on and my data is still there, nintendo has a bit of a sheild. Supposedly there is a new memory card deticated to help prevent corruption on PSO, coming out next month. At least thts what i have from sega.

15-08-2003, 06:37 PM
Zero, i went to currys, they sold accessories for really cheap, i gotta Gamecube to GBA official link up cable for 1.01 i think, n i think the memory cards were like 99p, i got 3! Mayb the prices were the other way around, well wotever it was bloody cheap!!

15-08-2003, 08:44 PM
Kool. The memory card cost a whole 27p if you were wondering :eek: :D. Bloody cheap :)

16-08-2003, 12:05 AM
Black market:cool:

16-08-2003, 10:07 AM
Yep. In other words Currys :)

16-08-2003, 12:40 PM
LOL, near enuff the samething!!

17-08-2003, 02:22 PM
27p?! cheap?! good lord, thts sumthing tht sounds like it would buy you a GBA SP game!:eek: :eek: :eek:

17-08-2003, 03:39 PM
Your thinking of 27. Theres 100p to a . And the memory card was 27p. Now that is cheap! (extremely)

17-08-2003, 10:39 PM
I take it tht means pounds is like as in cents then?

If Im right do I get an A in money class?:D

17-08-2003, 10:53 PM
lol, no no, its 100 pence in one pound (1), like in 100 cents to one dollar ($1), yer thats rite!

17-08-2003, 10:56 PM

17-08-2003, 11:02 PM
then dose that mean one(the simbol u use) is $100!???:eek:

18-08-2003, 12:17 AM
I think the exchange rate from to $ is 1.5 about.
So times the by 1.5 and you have got it in $

25p X 1.5 = 40 cents.

18-08-2003, 12:38 AM
...........:confused: nm

18-08-2003, 12:43 AM
thats to confusing..im not gonna try that lol

oh by the way which picture should i use the first one or teh second?

18-08-2003, 01:04 AM
How many in euros?

18-08-2003, 09:28 AM
Euros.... pfftt. What sort of currency is that?! ;) hehehe. joking.


18-08-2003, 01:50 PM
I'm not laughing(hate them too),u lose some $ when u buy anything because of decimal numbers.

18-08-2003, 02:19 PM
lol, dam euros, pounds is the future, forever, yay!

You lot are just really confusin

18-08-2003, 03:37 PM
The future is the past.(The money we used before euro).

18-08-2003, 10:14 PM
Couldnt give a damn about what currency we have, as long as I have alot of it :D

18-08-2003, 11:19 PM
I don't Fancy looking like an idiot trying to figure out how much euros to use and the shopkeeper keep on asking for help on how to count euros.

19-08-2003, 10:46 AM
Lol, you've got a point there. It would take quite a while to get used to the new currency. I was in France using it, and I couldnt work it out. The shop keeper had t ohelp me out and I had to count along :(.

19-08-2003, 12:10 PM
Euros make you look stupid.
Think of going into a shop and trying to work out how to do it and gettin help from people looking like a baby while all the other people laugh at you because they think your stupid.

lmao, if you gave me the $$ in euros i could translate tht. Lets remeber I am from germany so euros isnt as complicated. At least to me:D

19-08-2003, 06:34 PM
So who cares.When I look at english money I can't translate.
BTW euros are a big bulls*** that was made to steal small amounts of money.

13-09-2003, 07:36 PM
it depends on your point of view

13-09-2003, 08:09 PM
Im guessing your knew here. Welcome! :p:)

13-09-2003, 11:46 PM
U see there's a disvantage in Euros.Everytime u buy something,the Euros that u use to pay aren't round numbers(A 2 Euros coin has infact a percentage.).By time,always paying the same will acumulate that percentage(That u can't withdraw because it's too little,but with time it get's big:rolleyes: ).
In a quick view it seems okay,but in a long view u'l notice they steal u a small percentage everytime u buy something.
