  1. Is it just me, or the Nov.18 maintenance page was not posted? No announcements nor updates? An event called “DF Girls no Chousen” part 1 seemed to have started last week. Too bad i’ve learned about it only a few hours ago. It means i’ve missed a chance of getting some goodies from the NPCs. I’m glad there’s part 2 though. I still want some ragol mems.

    1. Thank you for the quick reply, Ricardo! I’m on Vita, and for whatever reason, that page doesn’t load along with other maintenance posts. Thank you for the link! I appreciate it!

  2. Can’t log in. I get a black screen. Uninstalled English patches I get to character select screen but then I get stuck in Infinity Loading Screen Loop of death.

    1. it looks like it’s something to do with the english patches, without patch it’s working for me, but with patches it’s not

    2. yea i has no patchs plus no plugin or even translator
      im completely vanillia here
      still getting the infinite pipe loading

    3. same here infinite pipe loading -.-” get rid of blackscreen just by removing all english patches by “troubleshooting > check old/missing files”

  3. Yeah same here, can’t log in as well, just get a black screen after the opneing movie for the game. Tried the Fix PSO2 EXEs and GameGuard Errors, disabled plugins, or reset the game’s settings and no dice.

  4. yea you guys are getting blackscreen but for me im getting the infinite pipe screen after checking all files /old/missing/an delete files an still keeping getting it

    1. After doing the file checks, manually doing Redownload Original Files > English Large Files gets me passed the infinite loading screen.

    2. Hey just wanted to chime in on the conversation. I had these problems you all are getting. I tried going vanilla, etc and still got the loops and stalls. Eventually I got desperate and tried my JPN VPN. It worked. Believe me I’ve tested this on multiple occasions. I would be on a regular connection most of the day then around after 5pm EST it would suddenly get extreme lag. I would turn on my VPN and boom back in business. I assume that Sega has begun throttling some IP address ranges during times of high activity.

  5. PSO2es use to work fine for me now i get this googleplay msg where i get sent to google play store n it says PSO2es not in your country any help

  6. PSO2 Proxy seems making error
    i use manual method for that proxy work fine till now
    find that “rsainject.dll” is what make the error NP1015 because when i delete it the error gone but without it i can not login

    Playing via old method VPN for now since SEGA seems not gonna release IP block for SEA region

  7. This update is a total mess. Previewing costumes in the shop is broken, and even buying and equipping them will gimp the game all the same. You can only wear costumes that you logged into the game with in your inventory/bank I guess?
    Worse yet, accessory placement system is now COMPLETELY broken, with the top up/down placement controlling a mix of two variables, one of the next two being completely unresponsive, and the other only controlling one of the two accessories where applicable.

    SEGA pls fix ur shit this is embarrassing. Did they even play this update before it went live? Evidently not, not that it seems like they play the game at all anymore. Too busy playing gaijin WarFrame I guess.

    1. If you’re getting a black screen at start, uninstall the english patch.
      If you’re getting the infinite tunnel, uninstall the large files.
      If you’re getting a black screen at the salon, run a file check from the regular PSO2 launcher, not from the tweaker. It’s the second button down from the big button.

      The game won’t be in English, but you’ll at least be able to play until AIDA gets things working again.

  8. sir can anyone help me? i use the tweaker and now its redownloading 3200 ish missing file again 🙁
    is there any trick to make the tweaker redownload those 2.5gigs file? its really bother me since my net is metered

    thanks in advance

  9. Anyone get error that can’t login?
    after i enter my ID and Pass some japanese text popped out
    (check at Go-Trans its about “You were Disconnected”)
    revert proxy, reinstall gameguard, reinstall PSO2exe not helping much,
    even when i already uninstall the english patch

    1. Perhaps the IP block use the VPN if that the case

      if there is no IP block for your country check the “host” file on “”C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts” and delete the proxy list there, the tweaker create that list for you that use the proxy

      if that not solve the problem check your internet connection first, and make sure your VPN is actually connected

  10. These Genesis weapon camos made me realize a glaring problem with the major Story Mode characters. None of them use RANGED WEAPONRY.

    The closest we get is Zeno using a gunslash other than that ZILCH.

    We have Lisa the loveable shoot-happy cast. Fourier the launcher user with a fascination for lilipans. Io a bow user with a habit to call you senpai. Finally Klotho the TMG user with big pockets. That is it and none of them are major players in the story. Hell Klotho and Io haven’t shown up once in a story mission they are only around in the USB cutscenes.

    1. I think it’s mainly because it’s harder to show martial skill with a gun. For that matter, I was amused that in 3-7, Casra and his opponent manage to make Talis fighting look graceful and cool.

      Same reason why Casra and Claris don’t use techs during their fighting, though. Wave a hand fireballs don’t look nearly as cool as acrobatic staff fighting.

      That being said I would love to see the cutscene versions of a gunner’s acrobatic martial artist work, or at least a Ranger using things like Parallel Slider. The possibility is there, I suppose SEGA doesn’t want to go to the trouble of an Equilibrium gunfight.

    2. True dat, ranged weapons tend to be a bit short on the interactive element. Unless you go gratuitously gimmicky af like Every Gun Fu Movie Ever they’re basically “point and shoot”.

      Also not that many ranged enemies to go around when you think about it, and “gun versus melee” is kinda PITA from a compositional standpoint since it’s kinda terribly one-sided depending on which party can control the range.

  11. Huh, you know I just noticed, Daylight Saving Time ended like a month ago but the tab still says “Eastern Daylight Time”

  12. I already use the most updated tweaker but still getting black screen when using english patch. Uninstalled the english and it works fine. Anyone still facing this trouble besides me? ._.

    1. Use the tweaker to install english patch > start game > at black screen hit ALT+F4 and press enter, blindly > start tweaker again, it will detect and advise you of a more update version of the english patch to download, allow tweaker to download and install it > Game should be patched and fine to play without loops or blackscreens.
