How to Obtain Friend Cards and Quests without Ad Hoc Party or Xlink Kai
Dissidia 012 is a lovely game. It’s so lovely that you don’t even have to fight someone in a multiplayer match to obtain their Friend Card and be able to fight their Ghosts. On top of that, you can obtain Quests through the same means, since Square seems to have given us an English version without the ability to upload Quests online.
There have been quest communities forming and quest/friend card sharing topics arising around the web, offering many links to these things, so we all can experience others’ work.

First of all, you need to know how to get those quests and Friend Cards online. It’s a simple process that is easy for me to explain.
Friend Cards can be exported into save files and imported into your own save file to be able to fight that person’s ghost character. You Export from the “Data Config.” option. After here, bring up your Friend Card and press Square to export it. Importing is done in Communications Mode, under Communications. An option is there called “Import Friend Card” that lets you find a Friend Card save file and import into you Friend Card list.
For Quests, you simply need to have it saved on your memory stick’s “SAVEDATA” folder and you can bring it up in the game and play through it. Quests are also saved the same way Friend Cards are.
If you want to upload your own, you have to find the Quest or Friend Card, then you need to plug your PSP into your PC after saving the Quest or Friend Card. Once you find the folder it’s in on your Memory Stick’s “SAVEDATA” folder (inside the “PSP” folder), then compress the folder into a .ZIP file or other compressed format. This can be done by right-clicking the folder and then clicking on “Send to -> Compressed Folder”.
Once it’s compressed, upload it to a file sharing web site, like MegaUpload and you’ll be given a link to your Friend Card or Quest. You can then give the link for others to download the quests and/or friend cards. Note that these are region-locked. You can’t send a US quest to a EU player.
Getting them onto your PSP and working in the game can sometimes be tricky. For quests, you CANNOT rename the folder. So, if you’ve got two different quests called “Quest00”, then you have to move one off of your memory stick to be able to put the other one on and use it. Otherwise, Dissidia 012 will recognize it as corrupt data. So, basically, back them up on your computer.
Friend Cards are simpler. Once you put them into your SAVEDATA folder and import them into your game, you can delete the save files for the Friend Cards and you won’t lose them in your Friend Card list.
Note that you can import your own Friend Card and you can import multiple copies of your friend card, in case you want ghosts of more than one of your characters to spar against. When you import a second copy of your own card, it will not overwrite/delete the first one you had. It will keep them both.
To show an example, here are a few links to things I’ve made:
Quest – The Fallen 1
It’s been awhile since the game came out, but expect more updates to come in.
I’ll be back with updates soon!
