Can someone please tell me what FSOD means...
so far i've picked up that it makes you lose all your items..?
maybe, i think, perhaps, could be, anyone..?

i've seen it all in hacks and cheats threads so i figured this was the place to put it...

29-01-2005, 10:43 PM
Frozen Screen Of Death. it happens when some hacker screws up an online game. if it happens in the lobby, you lose your money. if it happens in game, you lose your unequipped stuff. if it happens in a save, you lose everything. there are ways to prevent this though. if you put your game in Japanese language setting, you can't be FSOD'd (i think). also if you do get FSOD'd there are a few tricks that can reduce the effects of it.

you've been most helpful...

Just remember also, Fsod has S.O.D For a reason...

If you didn't get it; The Fsod'rs are sad SODS

really? aww, that sucks........oh well, thanks for the info, I didn't know that. ;)

31-01-2005, 02:42 PM
i guess the only way to stop it now is to stay offline.

31-01-2005, 04:20 PM
Staying offline means the game gets boring too quickly, with limited quests etc.

yeah, i still play online, but i have just come across a bit of a situation... Numusu (i think thats how you spell it) has been FSODing online, but this is odd. Odd because you dont need to have jsut arrived in a lobby or game, and he dosent need to just have entered. He seems to be able to FSOD any individual he wants at any given point in time, usually i dont give these people glory by mentioning them. But i felt this was required.

I almost feel sorry for these anal rententive retards, they need to get a girlfriend, and get laid, mind you, if they girl had a boyfriend, they'd have the cr*p beaten out of them in 5 seconds, that's how I know these guys are too cowardly to meet me face to face, yeah, I know I said I'd debate with them first, but I'd make the debate short, so I could have fun watching them squeal in excruciating pain, heck, even I've gotta' have some fun.

Everybody! Take anything you have! Rifles, chainsaws, axes, handguns, dynamites, explosive sheeps and whatever, 'cause we're going to spill some blood tonight!

At least, we should send pictures of anyone who fsods us. Right? The best would be to cut their heads of, but it's two problems with that:
1. Since they seem to be mind-less, this wouldn't solve the problem, and
2. We wouldn't get to play PSO anymore if we killed them.

OK but being serious, I think i got FaNaTiC and another player banned the other day, and all i had to do was send them digital camera MOVIE evidence (the sound an FSOD makes etc.). Come on guys, if you have any form of film taking USB compatible camera or video recorder, send it in! It seems to have worked for me where previously i have been sending simple photos which they would not accept.

I have my laptop, VHS recorder, Mini-DV player, and web-cam handy, I always do.

Mind you, I guess once they get banned, that prooves my thoery that sales of spray paint will go up, and perhaps we can get a warm BigMac?

they usually have multiple serials so they always come back. I just like to annoy them as much as possible.

Scott Bull

So you mean to say that FSOD'ers are the pain in my left knee, lol.

Even if they have multiple serials, Sega can ban by IP, phone number, and address.

Anti Hacker
14-02-2005, 08:54 AM
But they never do, its always a 24 hour ban. And many of them are on a proxy server to which extent their cheating in online play is out of ST or even segas hands. They shouldnt have allowed proxy server users to play in the first place, and now they have. Well i hope they change their ways for PSU.

Scott Bull
14-02-2005, 09:37 PM
It can be done, no matter if you're on a proxy or not, it requires a different method that's all.

By that theory, I could hack Bill Gates's bank account and not be detected, heh, if only, IF ONLY!

Been there, done that, got the T-shirt!

I sold you the t-shirt, I ripped it off Gates's back and garotted him with it, he is leas cheater if you think about it, all the money he has, and he still produces the biggest FSOD ever; "you have performed an illegal operation", woah, I was in hiding for 5 weeks the last time I saw that, lol.

I have come to the conclusion that pre-built computers suck, however, lacking the skill to make my own, im forced to accept them...

Scott Bull
17-02-2005, 01:30 AM
Most pre-built computers are OK, custom's are generally better, but sometimes can go right belly up, and they're not that difficult to make, since 95% of a tower is empty space anyhow, (like an X-Brick, and the people who play them, lol), most of my computers are laptops now, and when they go obsolete or FUBAR, rather than upgrade/repair them, I just buy a new one.

Because most of mine are intended for use with Music, their primary specs are based around what the music programs need to run on.

Whatever, I just buy a new computer, it saves all that bother, lol.

Yay, topic, erm, curse them?

But this can be linked, weakly, Sega need to do some major upgrades and such to make FSOD more difficult for the best part of a month, I think they should take the whole lot down for a short while, (in rotation, of course), and update the servers again, and stick some damn mod's on for smeg's sake.

Anti Hacker
19-02-2005, 11:21 PM
Oh look, the mod got FSODed. And what about that? the culprit has multiple serials/access keys! Well, i guess that wouldnt work, heh.

Scott Bull
20-02-2005, 12:15 AM
Ban by IP, phone number, and address, that's what I do on my forum-board, therefore making it practially impossible to re-enter if I ban someone, (though in 3 years I've only banned 2 people, with the hosts banning 2 or so).

Sega are just lazy.

20-02-2005, 12:17 AM
Ban FaNaTiC and Manak, please? Or tell me how to do it, and i swear i will.

20-02-2005, 03:04 AM
FaNaTiC? I thought you were on about our member, PSO-Fanatic then.

Actually, ban him too. Hahahahahahah!

Scott Bull
20-02-2005, 11:59 AM
I thought Manaknayda' has been banned, I sent Sega complaints about half a dozen times, eventually I managed to find out one of Manak's HL numbers.

As for FaNaTiC, I heard they had their Kumui-chan account banned, guess it just takes repeated complaining to Sega.

21-02-2005, 10:21 AM
It should take ONLY ONE COMPLAINT!

Anti Hacker
21-02-2005, 06:21 PM
And no theyre not banned in any way shape or form, I saw Kamui online as an Ep3 user. Both are still at large and are FSODing.

Scott Bull
22-02-2005, 12:19 AM
Yup, my theory is that Sega doesn't even exist, and is just ran as a sister company by trained chimps, with fleas, and rabies.

The only people more anally retentive than the people who FSOD and such, are Sega themself.

22-02-2005, 02:13 AM
damn theres always a solution to a problem we just got to think harder and strike the FSODer even harder!!
How do they learn to hack the game, why dont we do something about AR like send in complaints and such but the weird thing is AR has the bad reputation but not much about Game sharks have been mentioned though :S
oh well but theres an answer out there some where and once we find it we could stop FSODers for ever then we would be at peace. :)

Scott Bull
22-02-2005, 10:19 AM
They learn how to do it with "noob" devices such as "AR", I know how to do more advanced hacking on the internet itself, but I don't because I know it won't impress anyone, and that it isn't an honourable task, (I learnt it from my former military days, and from school buddies).

These people try to earn respect through fear, intimidation, and extortionism, and honestly think that what people think about you on the internet is worth a sheep's sh*t.

Hacking, like programming is easier than most people think, it isn't just for the spotty teenager sitting along in his room trying to hack the Pentagon anymore, anyone can do it if they have the right stuff, and knowledge, though when these guys use AR they ain't doing the hacking, the AR is, they're not hackers, they're stupid hacker wannabe's.

There is a way to wake Sega up though, I've found confirmed that the Trades Description Act even applies online, as the product we are using requires funding from us, and they're not providing a service as stated by the actions they would take against these individuals, within their own Terms of Service, that's why these people are so much like Sega, and Sega secretly love them, both of them are breaking the TOS, and both of them can't be bothered to work to acheive anything.

Anti Hacker
22-02-2005, 12:38 PM
Also complaining to the makers of AR would do nothing. Even if they stopped selling them, too many are already in circulation. Im afraid the damage is done, all we can do now is protect ourselves. I think the best way to do this is to keep offline, when my current HL expires, i wont purchase another... until, or unless something is done

Scott Bull
22-02-2005, 11:05 PM
See, this is what I'm talking about, nothing will be done because with that attiitude, you're letting them win, bet if they could do it with AR they'd beat you up for your lunch money at school or whatever, lol.

I hope this ain't a trend for you, because you can't run away from all of the boogie men in real life.

I could have guessed, unlike you guys (well, probably most of you) i have a pretty large offline community. about 10-11 of us all play with multiple TVs, you know the way it s ;) . Im happy playing like that and i wont risk contaminating the others especially as if you seem to suggest in other posts PSO mem card viruses are about. Its not my right as a player. I have to quit for "the greater good" or some such crap i suppose.

Scott Bull
25-02-2005, 06:12 PM
When you quit though you're not helping, that's just it, and we all have friends offline, that's why there's 4 sockets on a console, but it isn't really, truely online when you play with mates, and you don't have the free zoo exhibit we call AR scum.

You could always keep coming back, just to annoy the FSOD'ers, saying it isn't your choice would be like someone stealing your GC, (mind you, mine is insured, so someone wants my GC, take your best shot and be on the meeting end of my kendo sword, lol).

I just like the desparation that FSOD'ers exert when no matter how many times they FSOD me, I just come back grinning, remembering at the simple fact, I'm a lot better than them, that and the fact I'm richer than them, smarter than them, more popular than them, and in essence, they're the stuff I scrape off my tailored roller-blade clamps, as do we all, well all know we are better than them in literally every single way, they have the false sense of superiority, we all have the real thing, lol, laugh with me if you will people.

Scott Bull
27-02-2005, 08:29 PM
I seriously doubt Sonic Team would support FSOD, and even if they did, it's an infringment of their own ToS, (Breach of Contract), and therefore also an infringment of the Trades Description Act, you're getting them 2 for 1.

Also, I doubt it's legit, I could say that my website is sponsored by Squaresoft/SquareEnix, just because I use the name Balamb SeeD Garden.

Sonic Team is a branch of Sega, without Sega, Sonic Team wouldn't exist.

Sonic Team is given a budget like every other department, and usually they spend it on a BigMac meal, (if they do well, they can go large, lol).

So sorry, I'm still right on this.

It's like saying Panasonic and Technics are 2 different companies, (and as a former Technics/Panasonic rep, I know this is not the case, and also Panasonic is now supervising the Technics name).
