Saving

You have to quit to save, correct? When I do that, the screen goes black and stays that way. Is this a common issue, or is it just the disc or the Dreamcast?

Wahoo!

Yes you must quit to save. Never heard of your issue but sounds like a loading issue.

I think it might just be the disc, I hope I can get it buffed out.

When playing offline the game only saves when you quit. As for your screen going black and staying black after selecting quit, that's a new on on me, but as already suggested it could be an issue with your disc.

When playing online, the game saves everytime you pipe, this includes when you pipe in and out of a team back to the lobby.

It also crashes when I die, pretty much when ever it loads (After first starting) it crashes.

Are you experiencing similar issues with any other Dreamcast games alsroboshack?

If not then I'm going to fair a guess that something is physically wrong with your PSO disc. But if you are having similar issues with other games then that would imply some manner of hardware failure is taking place within your DC.

Pretty much whenever any game saves or loads it crashes, it runs just fine, up until that point.

Do you have an alternate controller and VMU/Memory Unit you can try using with the system?

That's really the only other possibility I can come up with. Seeing as the issue from your description sems to be an I/O (Input/Output) error there is the very slim chance of a problem existing with either the memory card interface within the controller or the memory card being used itself. Worth a try at least.

I can't play it without the memory card, and I have tried with two different ones, both have the same glitch.
I also have the same glitch with Unreal, it crashes when it tries to load, after the first time of loading.
