105 thoughts on “PSO2 JP: Episode 4 Maintenance and Patch (1/27/2016)

  1. I’m sure this has been answered a million times, so I apologize, but:

    Stage 6 Graphics are coming later in the Spring, alongside the PS4 release, right?

    1. Well I think PS4 is due a little sooner. Like maybe a few weeks. But i’d say they will be released relatively close. The road map made it look like PS4 will get Stage 6 first with a PC release soon after.

    2. i think he’s saying the ps4 version is due a few weeks earlier than the update for the pc version that brings graphics level 6, not that the ps4 version will be released in a few weeks.

    3. If so then the wording could hardly be more misleading. No matter how I turn them the first two sentences can only be interpreted as, basically, “I think the ps4 version will be released in a few weeks”. :/

    4. i’m pretty sure you just don’t understand how words work. “yes, this thing is happening in a few months, but i think the other thing is happening a little sooner, by maybe a few weeks.” is how you should be reading it. i read your original comment and reaper’s before what you were replying to and had a hard time understanding how you got so confused.

    5. Context is everything, Random. It should be read as “Well I think PS4 is due a little sooner. Like maybe a few weeks [sooner].”

      A large part of reading comprehension is being able to recognize what isn’t said explicitly, and being able to fill in the blanks based on what’s there.

    6. Another large part of reading comprehension is WANTING to correctly read things.

      From what I can tell, he either doesn’t want to try or just hates admitting to having make mistakes. If either of these things are true, then trying to tell him what he did wrong is a waste of time.

      People who hate to admit when they’ve made a mistake are far too common on the internet from what I’ve seen and I’ve yet to find a way to convince them how much worse they make themselves look.

    7. The point is readers should not have to play a guessing game with poitnlessly and chronically unclear wording. Especially on the Internet where it’s always safer to assume that, in Tegnér’s pithy phrase, “what you cannot clearly say you do not know”.

      Not to mention the only too real risk of spreading misunderstandings of the topic in question, which is the specific reason I made a point of linking to the correct info in the first reply.

    1. Maintenance cross burst !! XD

      just to ask when you log in game do you start at EP4 *not as new player but old as dinosaur XD * and can not go back to EP3 unless you did half matter board episode 4 ?

    2. Basically, yeah. Didn’t progress far enough on it (thanks, random 630) to know where the “point of return” is though.

    3. It’ll be back up and running in not time pumpkin sweets, you’ll be wasting your time like a pro sooner than later.

  2. No Special Abilities or extending for Tacts? Guess I should’ve seen that one coming with all that pet-grinding coming. They have to rebalance the system somehow I guess. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    1. you even need lambdas and 13* eggs for Candy manipulation, having the weaps use the “regular system” as well would be way too gringy, or would have to be way too overpowered

  3. Is it only me or I must update more than the update size? coz my net is so damn slow and I have downloaded more than 3.7GB now.. but I still need 10k more files…

    1. It is probably just a sizing glitch, it might be more because it said: “with pre patch 517mb’s” “without prepatch 4.0gb’s” so that might be the remainder amount of pre patch or patch.

    2. Would it be said for the Vita version as well? I don’t want to go shopping for a 16GB Memory Card just yet, since I want to get back on the Vita version for the sake of writing something for the game.

    3. delete the win32list_dont_delete_me.txt, open tweaker, ignore the pop-ups, check old/missing files, the first buliding files should be 41++K, and when tweaker search for missing files(the second scan) files should be 40++K files

    1. “Oh, you guys thought we were releasing content? Nah, we’re just gonna turn the servers off. Sorry, not sorry.”

    2. as seemingly salty/rude you may come off as at times (i don’t see this but others might) these comments are the best things i’ve seen on this blog since the ddos

  4. Hello, anyone can explain to me what happened to my pso2 tweaker/pso2 files?
    About 30 minutes ago, I opened my tweaker and everything there is fine, and then a few minutes ago I decided to open my tweaker again and now I have like 2000+ missing files?

    I don’t have any English patch installed even before I opened my tweaker. 🙁

    1. I forgot to add that I’ve already downloaded the pre-patch 3.7 GB (PC) and the additional 575 MB (if pre patched) before that happened.

      Thanks~

    2. I’m pretty sure its SEGA releasing new files/fixes/whatever and Tweaker is just downloading them. I had to download a good chunck of extra files when I openend the tweaker 2-3hrs later after maint supposedly ended. So, at this rate, Tweaker gonna keep downloading files as SEGA spits them out.

    3. Thanks goodness I have a backup of pre-cede files saved in other folder. I just made a copy of that again and I put it where my pso2 is, somehow it prevented the tweaker from downloading the files again.

      Thanks a lot mate, I’ll keep that in mind~

    4. Sure, I’ll try doing that. By the way, I noticed your tweaker is on the latest version (3.0.7.0). I’m still using 3.0.6.9, and whenever I try to update my tweaker, I get the “something went wrong” message and it opens a pop up window asking my permission to send the log files so it can be fixed.

      Then later on, I can see two tweaker window open on my screen, the latest and my old one. Also if I close the two window and open the tweaker again, it keeps reverting back to 3.0.6.9.

      Sorry for these stuff. I appreciate the help

    1. well im not 100% sure but i think its 4.9 gigs if you run the update through new method. not sure when it will be fixed, or if it is even possible. but yeah everytime game updates rather click no and update through old method <— if you have patches installed it will be a few 100 mb extra

    1. If you don’t plan to get a physical version of PSO2 for the PS4 online, you will need a Japanese PSN Account (SEN, PSO2 only shows up in the Japanese PSN Store). You can create a Japanese account without a Japanese PS4, so there really isn’t much of a region lock holding people back. Game will still remain IP Blocked if you’re in the Southeast Asia regions (SEA) as per usual.

    2. really? xD im so sure i remember them saying region locks in ps4 xD that you couldnt even play a us disc if you from uk xD oh well im just curious

  5. I’m curious… does the commemorative bargain set count towards the current Ragol Memory campaign for purchasing premium sets since it includes a 90 day premium package, or is it considered wholly separate and someone would have to buy the premium separately to qualify?

  6. So anyone else having trouble logging in? i can get up to the login screen now, the ships are clearly green yet im getting a no error message sort of message :/ Anyone have any ideas?

    it basically has サーバーから切断されました。 in the message which sadly im not really good at ‘reading’ if that suppose to mean incorrect password or what. -_-

  7. So anyone know what i keep getting サーバーから切断されました。 whenever i try to log in? Google translate says its “It was disconnected from the server.”, but that kind of confuses me when the servers are green lighted :/

  8. Anyone else keep getting a perpetual black screen after the opening logos/videos after the ep 4 update? I can’t get to the title screen anymore and all I can do is hit ALT+F4 and hear the PSO2 window pop up apparently asking me to confirm to kill the game.

  9. Well i took off all plugins, english patches to run the game. it took me to the log in i logged in and it said disconnected from server. I checked the proxy plug in and it was enabled in order to connect but tweaker said do not use plugins cause plugin status is unknown. Proxy server status has 0 online so that means it’s time for aida to do some work so we can play.

  10. “Purchase AC Shop items at a discounted rate between January 27th ~ February 10th.”
    Does that mean Aida will get us some cards between those dates…? ;p

  11. Am I the only one having issues when Itry to create a new character with the new slot they gave? When I click on create character after the scene i get back to the character selection but I don’t see any option, basically I can only close the game with ALT+F4

  12. Hmm Sega broke something is anyone here premium? I had some stuff in premium and I’m not sure if I’m not looking in the right area or what but I was curious and I went to my set and noticed the gunner my set items were grayed out and It gave the message
    以下の理由により、
    装備できないアイテムがありました。
    ・アイテムパック、または倉庫に存在しません。
    meaning could’nt equip some things because they aren’t in warehouse/ item pack

  13. Anyone else having trouble with PSO2es? It keeps giving me some pop-up when I try to log in, then takes me to the PSO2es google play page…. did they finally start checking where you’re playing it from and fully region lock it?

  14. For changing favorite extra storage (For PC)
    1) Select desired share storage
    2) Press [ESC] once
    3) Press [Shift] and you will see star icon moved to the one you’ve selected

    😀

  15. Well glad the issue was simply repointing yourself back to the regular server, sadly it ended up breaking global chat till thats fixed -_-

  16. Er, is it OK to launch the game now? The Tweaker is saying a looot of things may not work now… (I’m still updating now but it won’t take too long)

  17. Just curious if i buy the 90 day premium pass do you still get the ragol memory as a gift at a later date? I did not see any thing in the ac store that mentioned it

    1. Yeah buying the 30, 60, or 90 day passes normally qualify you for the Ragol Memories campaign.

      The new bundle also qualifies as purchasing the 90 day pass, so you can go for it or the regular pass by itself.

  18. So, EP4 beginning… I feel like we’re just toys for Arks and I still don’t really understand “why” things begin like this. Have we beed trashed because of “mission complete, you can disappear now”? x) Anyway, these missions on Tokyo are so… Hum… WTF. Dinosaurs… And living trains… And zombies… And rings that make us dash like a Sonic… Yeah why not… (I believe that, for the very first time, I’m disappointed about something in the game.)

    Anyway, my question may be stupid, I know, but how to get these special bonus coins for the new kind of missions (Lvl1 or more)? I’ve done some other missions but I didn’t catch anything like that.

    1. In the case you forgot the MC *is* a buck private footsoldier in the ARKS. If anything the organisation is a lot more generous about explaining to the grunts why they’re sent wherever than real military ones…

      And the pretty obvious reason for sending the MC on the Earth expedition would be that s/he’s by this point basically the go-to troubleshooter field agent for Xiao and the other higher-ups. (Sure hope a pay hike was included though, what with all the weird and important shit the MC handles.)

    2. …point. (I always assumed the TAs were some kind of VR training courses anyway.)

      muh klotho munies ;_;

    3. Somehow it’s still “sad” to do that to someone who saved so many people in three episodes before, I think.

      Anyway, I’ve finished the first Story Quest of the Episode and… I… Feel… Like… The Story will offer really strange things… Not to say stupid things. Welcome to the real world, virtual boy.
      … Oh wait… Isn’t it “welcome to the virtual world, real boy” at the beginning? >_> (Nevermind, it won’t stop me from loving this game.)

    4. Hey, you get a fancy new title and all!

      As for the plot, I just go with the assumption that hard drugs flowed freely in the design office and skip the headaches. They’re tossing like triple-layer meta at us right out of the gate plus some pretty dank enemies to boot ferchrissakes… ~(°^°)~

    5. Yeah, didn’t want to say it but I thought the same about “drugs” when I saw the part in Earth… >_>

      But even if it looks strange, it made me think of something… Remember the Matrix movies? Just imagine. PSO2 world is the real one and Tokyo is a virtual existence like, for example, living in a server or a giant computer (Mother Brain pleaaase), and currently attacked by a virus or a something.
      It may sound stupid but I prefer this way of thinking the events and it seems as credible as the official scenario. But, after spending some time in Tokyo… We can notice the dinosaurs and other animals disappear in geometrical forms when they’re killed, like in… A video game?

      … Maybe I give to much importance in the few I know of this Episode so far… (Haven’t finished Chpt.1 yet)

  19. I did not see the new bundle when i played could you please tell me what it comes with it i am very interested in it also how much AC does it cost? i will look for the price next time i log in maybe that will help me find it easier . Thanks again for your quick response i am very grateful

  20. ゲーム★マニアックス
    excuse me but this phrase doesnt seems to be worked when i type into the gamechat and press enter …is there any possible for me gonnna change to certain places in order to activate it ?

    1. For those word campaigns, you just paste and enter the phrase in chat and that’s it you’re done. Nothing will happen. You will receive the items when the maintenance comes.

  21. Every time I try to set my cast parts to work separately, it lets me save the option but then immediately puts them back. What do?

  22. Anybody else having trouble installing English patch and EN large files?
    Tweakers says they’re compatible but whenever I install mine, I can’t get past the magatsu video (black screen).

    Also, after uninstalling the English patches, I keep having missing files whenever I run a file check.

    1. I had a similar problem – what I had to do was use the official SEGA launcher -which patched some files. Then I ran tweaker, installed patches, and all works fine now.

    2. @SLAYME, I did that and it worked! There is one problem though, there are times that I get stuck after the magatsu video (black screen) or sometimes EVEN BEFORE the SEGA logo comes up, I always have to restart my pso2. It feels like it’s 50:50 chance that it will work ._.

      But thanks, that really helped a lot~

  23. Might have beaten me to it already, but I just discovered that saying ” ” will call out your own pet’s name in PSO2. Just saying if anyone knew this or not, especially notifying the people who don’t know about it.

  24. i got error in this new patch. frist i download pre-patch before maintance and tweaker asking me again to update again. So i download it and there was 2729 missing file. after 2 hours later this masage come up and suddenly the patch done.
    ERROR – Could not find file ‘D:\PHANTASYSTARONLINE2\pso2_bin\data\win32\ffbff2ac5b7a7948961212cefd4d402c’.
    i press update pso2 new metode and it ask me again to download 2729 file again.
    i tried press pre-patch but this masage appear:
    Downloading pre-patch filelist… Done!
    Someone help me please i getting error this new patch
