It does have 1-player mode, where it will probably mimic offline mode, but instead you do that online.

LOL. confused? :lol:

No, it is entirely online. This is because your character is saved on a server online, to prevent cheating. However, there is a Single Player mode, but to access this you must be online and sign in to your account.

I would assume everything in PSOBB would be online, considering that you need to be online just to access and alter your character.

No.

Ok, let me rephrase: there is NO offline mode. It's gone. No more. Nada. Zilch.

There is only online mode. This is because (as others stated) all characters are saved server side.

But for people who miss the good ol' offline mode, there is a 1-player mode, which is exactly like offline mode, except you do it online. How it works it that when you create a room at lobby, you choose option for "1-player." And presto!

No you have to be online at all times. Your character is automatically saved as you play to an online server. You also have to log into your account EVERY time you want to play. If you are in a single player game and you get disconnected from the internet, you will be disconnected from the game. Again, this is to prevent someone from playing offline and just altering their characters data (which is easy to do if the files are all on your PC) and then going back online with the hacked items and data.

There is no offline. But there is single-player.

Yea, it is. You have to be connected to the internet in order to play PSOBB. And it's an Open Beta phase, so it's all free.

I really have no idea about that. That's a good question... If the people in a room can go anywhere the person who's farthest along can, they can just skip areas and that wouldn't be any fun. :?

New areas are opened up by completing "Government Quests". In muliplayer mode, go to the principal's room/lab and talk to the new characters on the left (Momoka for principal, Nol for lab). They will give you a list of quests that MUST be completed in order. The last quest for each level set will always be a full level runthrough and a boss. By defeating the boss in the Government Quest, you permanently open new areas. Completing all the Government Quests in an episode on Normal unlocks all the difficulties for that episode provided you are a high enough level to go there. You only need to complete all Government Quests once; Hard, Very Hard, and Ultimate will be unlocked for that episode once you do this.

Also, completing the Government Quests also unlocks more singleplayer quests.

As far as I know, BB got 4 mode,
normal mode means everybody get together to play the tasks

challenge mode-is CH mode and you can challenge yourself to time-attack and win to got a S-WEAPON,

battle mode--player vs player

single mode--just like offline mode, monsters are weaker than normal mode

you can choose these modes and difficulties in the lobby when you create a game.


that's it. :)

Ok, but lets say you just started the game and then you join a game and the leader has everything done. Will you be able to do everything and go everywhere the creator of the room can do and go or will you be restricted to what you can do?

If the room creater had done everything and he can go anywhere.
then you jion the game, you can also go each area. But the quests can't be.

Ok, that makes sense. So when you join you'd only get area privledges but would have to do the quests over again with your party?
