    This looks horrid. The entire Dragon Ball series was based on fast-paced fighting. This would have worked a lot better if they hadn’t used the cliche point-and-click type combat system and opted for something more action-oriented like Dragon Nest and Vindictus.

      true, also bandai handed it over to some rookie game companie, this is their first game also since they didnt have a lot of budge , they used an old and cheap engine. And the game is a lot grindy as well. But for a dbz fan the game is indeed quite fun.

      well if you tihnk about it thats gonna take lots of work cmopared to the whole dbz series it may take about a year to complete and the fast paced fighting? no game actually has that yet but i cant wait till they do would make games cooler

    Once again Spunkify, an excellent episode. I’ve known this DB MMO has been around for a while, but i never thought it was a well thought out DB MMO, just by watching this episode, it made me to really want to play it. Again, great episode!.

    Spunkify has a guide for installing and such under the video. Just click the hyperlink labeled “here” for it.

    Also, Thanks Spunkify for making this. I’m a huge fan of DB/DBZ and would just play it even just a few times just for the nostalgic feel of it. Keep the show coming. Really enjoying these a lot. :)

    You’re growing on me spunkify. I didn’t approve at first but now I’m starting to like you, I guess it’s just you getting better, I’m not sure.

    Anyway, looks great, but I won’t try it because it ;looks ungodly grindy.

    Also, I’m sure people would want an english patch for this game, there’s one for PSO2 so I’m sure there’s one for this, maybe somewhere you can put a link in for an english patch? I doubt people actually prefer to play in japanese.

    Great video. :)

    dragon ball is that of Taiwan, where Chinese is the language used,spunk was using the English patch, you can see when it will create a character and when an item is picked up, the english patch also translate other things UI

    site of the game is dbo.wasabii.com.tw

    i’ve been playing this game for about two weeks(HK version) and i absolutely love it. the only thing i don’t like(specific to the HK version) is the fact that there is only one server and you can only have two characters, however i think it is still technically beta, so no real complaints.

    my old post got deleted or something.. anyways.

    QUESTION:

    how the crap did you get into the game? i tried your guide. downloaded the game.
    But according the DBO community the only people that can play are Korea and Taiwan. They even make people register using a KSSN (Korean SSN)…

    • Sabin on August 12, 2012

      You can create at least 5 accounts with the same email on wasabi’s website, the only thing required are username and password, nothing else.

      • Jesterhead1985 on August 12, 2012

        the game takes you to the netmarble website though to launch it. not the Wasabi website.

        • ibubbles on August 12, 2012

          Netmarble is KR DBO, you have to play or TW (the Video) or HK, KR needs a lot of frills to play;

          TW Website: dbo.wasabii.com.tw

          HK Website: dbo.wasabii.com.hk

            So theres two version of the game. Okay.
            that explains why im having problems.

            Can we get a torrent for the TW version.. these downloads on the guide are rediculous…

    http://dbo.wasabii.com.tw/DB_Download/client.shtml

    in case anyone wants a better download option.
    You can download the client manually from the website. or using bittorrent.
    The speed on the official torrent is actually quite good.

    Why does my english patch not make storyline dialogue, like what i choose, show as english? I don’t even know what i’m saying to them so I just click top choice to be safe…

    • Andrew on August 13, 2012

      -facepalms- Read more into the game before you post…jesus. It’s only on the human. You find 7 Dragonballs and it gives you a wish for Super Saiyan.

  16. iBubbles on August 13, 2012

    if you saw Dragon Ball (anime or manga) you know that every son of man with Saiyan, the Saiyan powers are becoming weaker.

    so human in the game can only become superhuman with the desire of sheenlong

    I played the game, after hours of trying to get the english patch to work, and must say…unless the quests are translated the game is extremely annoying. You never know what to do and no one else is going to help you. Other than that its a very bright game and has potential.

    Been playing this game on the TW servers since this Foreign Fridays episode and I have to say it isn’t bad.
    There’s lots of iconic skills from the show like Kamehameha, Special Beam Cannon, Distructo Disc, and tons more.
    NOTE THAT THE ENGLISH PATCH WILL NOT CHANGE EVERYTHING TO ENGLISH. IT ONLY CHANGES CHARACTER CREATION, MERCHANT NAMES, AND MENU NAMES LIKE YOUR BAGS, SKILLS, CHARACTER AND OTHERS. IT WILL NOT CHANGE QUEST TEXT, SKILL NAMES, OR NPC DIALOG.
    For most of the quests there will be a red circle on the map all you have to do is go to the red circle and either kill or collect whats there. If it says 0/1 for the quest that most likely means you have to kill a rare monster which are shown as a red symbol that looks like this <.
    If you have a quest finished there will be a red X on your map showing where to turn it in.
    Some of the others are tutorial quests which will NOT show anything on the map just look up something like DBO tutorial quests on google and you should be able to find a full rundown on them.
    OH also when you first get off the island talk to the guy or girl standing there when you arrive at the next area and get the quest from them. Then scan them with your scouter by pressing T and that will finish your first tutorial quest which had me stuck for a long time.

Theres sites explaining it. Or use google translator. sorry im not more help its just been about 6 months since ive done it and that was on my laptop. should still have my account though. wanna buy it? :P

  39. Piccolodude on May 29, 2014

    The server is no longer up and when it was you needed a Korean SS# to make the account. It was kind of a pain the little I played it had allot of potential.
