I got these rings way back when I was fishing alot. I just started recently fishing again and I was wondering if something changed on this mini-BC. I remember it not being so hard but as of late I am 0/20 on the ring and I cant get the last chest to come up without time running out. If anyone knows anything about this mini-bc that can be of service please. Help me out!~

I've found that it's much harder to land the 5 catches on my PC. On PS2 I can do it with a few second to spare most of the time if I'm not fatigued and don't ***** up. The reason for this is that the game does not seem to run as quickly/fluidly on my PC as it does on my PS2.

For instance, if I'm dual boxing, animations for various things will complete on PS2 sooner than they do on PC. Additionally, my characters footsteps seem slower on PC despite the fact that I'm still actually moving at the same speed.

This really shows whenever I'm dual boxing two characters and they both board a ship/airship/whatever. The character on PS2 will already have completed the cutscene and will already be loading the next zone while the PC is still viewing the cutscene and hasn't even gotten to the "Downloading data" screen.

I guess I can chalk this up to having a ****** PC, but the point is that minute differences like this make a BIG difference when going for the Penguin Ring, so I would first ask if you notice any game performance differences from today compared to when you last tried for the ring.

That actually makes total sense to be honest. I was on PS2 back in the day when I was able to obtain the rings. I remember being able to give rings to others it would drop so much. I think that means I would have to bust out the PS2 and pray to god it will turn on ; ; The download is gonna be insane thats for sure. That really is odd though that it would play out like that the PC I play on is pretty up to date. You would think with alot of technology it would be the oposite but oh well.. Thanks for the tip!

****, try fishing Gugrusaurus on PS2 and then on PC. Chances are good that unless you intentionally lag your PC and lower the frames per second to around 5-10, you will not have an easy time catching them on PC even with rings.

SE has never really resolved the performance issue on fishing between consoles and PC, and who knows if they ever will.
