10 thoughts to “PSO2 JP: Extended Maintenance and Patch (12/17/2014)”

  1. Voice: Inoue Kikuko o_o That’s some seiyuu!

    Hmm, anyway, can someone explain? Here is written the patch would be 492Mo if prepatched… Whant I did several days ago and Tweaker says it downloaded “734.35/732.16Mo”. So…. What the? ._.

    1. Problem is that the Tweaker applies the pre-patch before restoring back-ups, so some files from the pre-patch then get over written by your back-up and have to be redownloaded.

    2. Dunno if this will help anyone else – but the tweaker froze on me when trying to update – seems the patches were not being uninstalled correctly before updating. After choosing the option to Redownload Original JP Files to replace the patches (you have to do it for each patch) – then everything updated correctly.

    3. I see… So, nothing to really worry about but restoring JP files from Backup to Win32 by ourselves before Patch maintenances can avoid re-downloading so much files, but as the Tweaker does how it does, we can’t avoid redownloading more sometimes. Is that correct?

    4. Yep. Basically, just restore your back-ups via the tweaker before maintenance starts and you are good to go.

  2. People are advised to manually uninstall EN patches. It’s easily done if you had chosen to do JP files back-ups. Zero problem in updating for Magatsu patch here.

  3. Ok so finished upating PSO2 earlier and now PSO2 is still in extended maintenance? So we are expecting server’s to be up later or tomorrow?

  4. Amazing, the patch made the lag of loading npcs way shorter.
    For me, it used to lag for around 8 seconds each time I enter the lobby/shop area from a different place (room, casino, etc). Now it only takes 2 seconds.
