(pso) my inventory completely disappeared

Post#1 » Mon Apr 15, 2019 3:33 am

So, yesterday i connected to pso and to my surprise atlimira was gone, it reappeared in a while but my inventory was long gone, i just only had my armor (giga shield) and two things i had left in the deposit, altough everything else disappeared even from the deposit. How comes?there's no way to get my things back?or at least a way to have a mag back?(altough i haven't noticed much difference playing without)

edit: ok i read now tact answer and that may be the cause, i know i should deposit and save but the other day was in a hurry and forgot to...

does anyone know if there is at least a way to have a mag back?

If your inventory gets deleted, that means that you shut the game off without quitting/saving properly. It is all saved locally on your side, so ships like Altimira being down have nothing to do with that. That said, if you're losing things from your bank as well, that's more of a problem -- I've never seen that happen myself so I can't think of what would cause that (other than possibly a bad memory card).

That all said, a ship crashing while you're playing on it will cause you to disconnect, but it will save your game properly to your memory card.

well i returned to the lobby with some folks and we started doing general chat then it got late and had to leave, i generally deposit everything but i may have forgot that that time, so 95% of cases it's my fault....

the only problem now is : how to get a mag back?

You can either make a new character and steal the baby Mag that all new characters get, or play Mine 1 in Normal and try to get a baby Mag from a box. Vol Opt also drops baby Mags in Normal at around 3/4 chance.

Download and burn Dream Explorer. Use at least 2 VMU's, one as a primary save and one as a backup. There are official Dreamcast 4x memory cards but they are rare and the 3rd party ones are not always friendly.
