Negate Enemy Trap Slowdown:
When you are close to an enemies and traps they can slow you down to a walk when they should be running. Press Start to bring up the menu, and the effect is negated. You can run past a group of traps or a throng of enemies this way...
When the game is starting and you see the "bursting" star, move on the analog and you will see that you have a smaller star that moves around with you. Useless, but cool, check out the effects it leaves behind.
Place an empty VMU in the second slot of a controller that is plugged into port D. A screenshot requires 195 blocks of free space. Start an online or offline game. Hold A + X then press Start on controller D to save the present screenshot. If you're successful, you will see a black screen with a countdown. The game will continue after the countdown, and the screenshot will be on the previously empty VMU. Go to http://pso.donut.dhs.org with the Dreamcast Planetweb browser to transfer your snapshot from your email mailbox. You can also upload your screens on Sonic Team's Official PSO Visual BBS webpage and view screenshots submitted by other players.
Extra Difficulty Settings:
Beat the offline version of the game to unlock Hard Mode. Doing so again will unlock Very Hard Mode. These modes are the same as previous ones, but you get more experience and better items in these modes.
When you are playing the game go to a place called the Ruins. Inside the first part of the ruins you will find a giant hole in the ground with a waterfall coming down the side, you can go through that waterfall to find secret items on the other side. Most of the time they will be better items than the ones you find every where else.
If you are a character thar uses techniqes then you can do this, press start to bring up the menu, go to customize and clear everything off of both things, then put "Resta" on the B button and on the Right-B button put either "Zonda" or "Grants". Now lock on to someone and press and hold R and then press B almost at the same time...but press R first then push B about 1 or 2 seconds after R. Note: This works best online so u can hit them and build up your PB (Photon Blast) it may not seem usefull but right before bosses it helps!
If you want to see the view for other players here's the way to do it. You need 2 controllers 1 in port 1 and the second in port 3 afterward go in area and hold L + R and D-pad up after yul be able to see other view from other players.
Break Free of Freeze:
There are some times when you will be frozen somewhere on the map. Specifically when your hit by the Grass Assassin's breath attack in the caves or the falling traps in the ruins. Normally you would take some damage but you can break free! Simply drop an item(one meseta works best) and your free!
Heal a Friend:
Press Start and go to techniques (sp?) then to heal then rest. Now go and press Up and A and the same time. This will refill the TP of one of your mates your playing with but will not fill up your own.
Walk Through Locked Doors & Force Fields:
Note: This trick is performed easier with male characters, or by using a Double Saber, Twin Brand, or Stag Cuttlery. What to do: Find a locked door that you want to go through, but cannot access yet (should be red on radar). Walk to the corner of the door, and wedge yourself in as far as you can. Now, quickly, without physically moving forward or backwards, make your character look at the wall to the side of the door so that his/her back faces the unlocked door. Do your 3 hit combo attack (w/out a weapon; or 6 hit with a DBL Saber/Stag/Twin) and you will notice you don't move forward (due to the wall), but instead you move backwards through the door on your backstep. Repeat this process (face your back to where you want to go) to make it through the door. VOILA! You should be through in a matter of seconds.
All Levels Open Online:
To open up all the levels for online play, simply beat the game offline on Normal mode. When you log on and play a Normal, Hard, or V-Hard game, the Caves, Mines, and Ruins will already be open.
Nice Buddies Online:
Need any free weapons such as a saber or mechgun? Just ask people online for any free weps and they might just give you some rare and possibly a 9 star weapon!
Open The Ruins Faster:
This trick opens the Ruins faster. When you beat the Mines and you're at the teleporter walk over to the blocked entrance to the ruins and do the "walk through walls/force field" trick and you should be able to get into the Ruins. Now it will be a little tricky, try not to get stuck.
