  1. tfw when you want to affix weps and customize pa's but then they hit you with the extended maintenance… I guess I'll wait…

  2. That feel when Necky EQ is gone but the Orbit Sheet is there until the 26th because item codes for Necky Triggers are in Famitsu Magazines. Won't be getting anymore Orbit weapons. :c

    1. Because what's needed for the files still can be acquired if you need to finish up. level 81+ Guranz spawns in the Christmas EQ, AIS Exoda's can be gotten in TD4, the rest are easily farmed.

  3. Quantum Check continues to download over 4400 files for a 30Mb patch, since the first patch it did. I guess there's file to delete to make it verify the folder again but don't find it (Deleted four files on its folder but it just redownloaded it). So I let it do it this time but, … Well… x)

    Clue for the file anyone? (Or can it be caused by my Register Cleaner prog?)

    1. IIRC that's caused by a bad whatchamacallit, file list? AFAIK running the old-method file check is one way to rebuild it properly but there are probably others.

    2. So Orb -> Check for updates (Old Method), right? Guess I'll have to try it. There was a new SB part this time? Sierra didn't even call to tell it…

    1. Exact same outfit as before so yes, it's just you. 😐

      Also debatable if it would even be *physically possible* for the hem to be any shorter…
