I've never had a PC version of the game. Usually only PS2. besides that, no. I wanna try getting one though. Only seen a glimpse of one.
First upload.

I already have DW5+XL for the PS2, so the PC version for that isn't of much interest to me, but I'd really like to own DW4 Hyper because I no longer have it anymore (as my PS2 version bit the dust...and as I bought it preowned, it wasn't in the best of conditions anyway, which is probably why it died on me).

BB also looks pretty interesting as well, and I'm sure I'd probably enjoy it if I had it. :)

"DW5" Special is a Japan/Taiwan/China release only, so GameFAQs wouldn't be the most reliable source to look up on it. And obviously it DOES exist, since I have it on my PC. :wink: Try searching "Shin Sangoku Musou 4 Special", and you should have better results.

The BB in "DWBB" means broadband.

Well if you're a shallow gamer like me, then the visuals should give you motivation to play it all over again. :P

Actually, I probably am a bit like that myself. :P

I remember a while after I got my PS2, I went through a pretty big number of PS1 games that I'd lost interest in, just so I could play them all again in slightly smoother graphics. :roll:

Understanding it wouldn't be the issue. I play with Japanese friends all the time on FFXI. Not fluent in the language or anything but I could get by. Getting the game and having it actually work on this North American laptop is another issue all together.

Suggestions? I would love to play this game!

Get your laptop or pc to suit up with the requirements, then check your internet connection because this is actually an online action game. After that, nothing too difficult to worry about.

DETAILED: http://www.musou-bb.jp/announce/071107/01/index.html

November 28, 2007 Renewal Information Opening to Public!

Dynasty Warriors BB will remodel the services and the game contents on Wednesday, November 28th, 2007.

The part of the contents show in this link, so check this out (if you can read Japanese!)

The Renewal Date & Time: Scheduled on Wednesday, November 28th in 2007

ALERT! The Game Title Changed!
From... Dynasty Warriors BB
To... Dynasty Warriors Online

<My Note: I guess this change is due to the release to other countries called DWBB as DW:Online.>

November 28th, 2007 Overview of Renewal Contents!

Renewal of Services

Change in the Payment System

The basic gameplay, including battles (Practice, Quests, Crashs, and Fights) is FREE instead of using the "Musou Gngeki" (Battle Passes) for one Crash/Practice/Quest Battle!

Therefore, they will STOP selling the Battle Passes on November 25th, 2007 and any leftover of these Battle Passes will be able to buy items, furnitures, and others instead.

Also, from Novermber 28th, 2007, they will sell the "MUSOU COINS" instead!

Here is the comparison between the old and the new system...

Dynasty Warriors BB (The Current - Until November 28th, 2007):

Price Tags:
15 Battles Passes = 500 Yen (~$4.40 USD)
50 Battles Passes = 1,500 Yen (~$13.10 USD)
115 Battles Passes = 3,000 Yen (~$26.20 USD)
Consumption Method:
Use 1 Battle Pass per Quest/Practice/Crash battles (Only Fight battles are FREE...)

Dynasty Warriors Online (The Renewal - After November 28th, 2007 and beyond):

Price Tags:
150 Musou Coins = 500 Yen (~$4.40 USD)
500 Musou Coins = 1,500 Yen (~$13.10 USD)
1,150 Musou Coins = 3,000 Yen (~$26.20 USD)
Consumption Method:
Use these Coins for consumption items (e.g. Peacock Urn, Speed Scroll, etc.), furniture purchase (for your character's house decoration), and enlargement in a house, so on...

For any leftover of Battle Passes and Old Coins by the time of renewal on November 28th, 2007...
Any leftover of Battle Passes will be worth 10 Musou Coins per a Musou Pass.
The Old Coins system will be gone. Any leftover "Old Coins" (the one that you get 2 Old Coins after each battle that you use the Battle Pass) will be worth 20 War Fund per an Old Coin.
The Server Time Change:
The server time will be 24 hours after the renewal on November 28th, 2007! (No more 6-hour server shut time!)

Renewal Game Contents:
All these updates will be effect on the renewal of Dynasty Warriors Online!
You can customize your weapons! You can remodel, reinforcement, and so on. It will be totally new system! <Ugh, so that weapon upgrade guide will not work!>
New high rank weapons, dresses, and ornaments!
<4th weapons aka Rank 5 weapons will be out!>
New emotion "Sit." <Good! Hopefully, my character can get some rest!>
and there are more fully loaded of new functions to be added!
*After November 14th, 2007, details of these renewal updates will appear from time to time. So keep checking this topic for more details.

Here it is! Here is your change to play Dynasty Warrior BB/Online for FREE! However, I hope that my guide is not going to be totally waste... Or else, my research will be scrap... out...''

Trying to get into the Chinese DWOL is a ridiculously convoluted process, and KOEI can go to hell for it. It's been an exercise in frustration just trying to download the damned game, and I like to think that my Chinese comprehension is better than my Japanese comprehension, and yet it was so easy to get a hold of the Japanese one...
