40 thoughts to “PSO2 JP: Extended Maintenance and Patch (6/10/2015)”

  1. Anyone having an issue where it's not registering the Pre-patch having been downloaded and keeps trying to download the full patch anyways?

    1. Yes, me and my friends all have that issue. I copied the contents of the data folder from "_precede" to the actual data folder, then went to the tweaker folder and deleted the DO NOT DELETE ME file. This causes tweaker to rescan your folders and include the prepatch data. You can then check for updates using the new method and it should download about 400+ files (around 50-70MB).

      Also, just to be safe, i ignored tweakers prompts about a new update being available on start-up, then redownloaded original JP files for each of the patches I had installed. THEN i used the "new method" of checking updates in the orb menu. All updated now.

    2. It worked. I love you. You saved me 18 – 20 hours of downloading. (I have cruddy speed)

    3. Great! Glad to hear! I have slow speed as well so I was desperate to figure it out. =x= Also have a vita patch to get tonight, lol. No time to redownload the PC update.

    4. Just curious, do you rebuild win32 donut delete something file after downloading prepatch ?

    5. It rebuild the win32_do_NOT_DELETE me on itself, for unknown reasons – JUST before it installed the pre-patch AND after redownloading the whole stuff first, wtf?
      Running a file check now, cause the tweaker seem to be bugged.

    6. The file is a list of all of your pso2 files so the tweaker doesnt redownload them, I assume. (I don't know x3) When you check for updates it checks your files and is building that list again.

      And thank you AIDA, I did not know that was triggered manually! Sweet. c:

    7. meh, This patch is the reason I have to buy a 16GB mem card for the Vita. The patch I just finished downloading just filled my entire 8 GB to the brim. T_T

    8. Sorry, I got stuck at work and was unable to trigger the prepatch installation until around midnight. :c Thanks for posting workaround instructions!

    9. I'm guessing you'd bugged the code somewhere which is causing it to forget to update the file list after it applies the pre patch. Sorting that out should fix it up

    10. Dont worry AIDA we figured it out somehow, its working before servers are up again so its definetly fine. Also thanks for everything.

    11. Dont worry AIDa we figured it out somehow. Thnx for everything you do for us.

  2. This is silly, but I just noticed third party updates for PSO2es are still being posted 😮 For those who want to have PSO2es on their Android devices without the need of downloading the update and installing it manually, you can download it just once on your device using VPN, then it'll be added to your list regardless of your country. I haven't used VPN since I installed it on my tablet on release and after I got my new phone last year, I got to install it directly from the Play Store by going to the list of apps attached to my account (drop down menu to the left, then "my apps" and finally, "all"). When updates are avilable, you simply have to launch PSO2es to receive the prompt. The app will redirect you to the store page regardless of country and you can update from there (or you can browser the "all" section once the app is installed, open the store page from there and update).

    1. Some people don't like vpn's, and some of them also want to play with the eng patch so why waste time installing a vpn when you can download both things at the same time.

    2. Some people dislike having to use a VPN for anything, so which is why we have it up there.

  3. No more pre-patch for me. This time and last were the same, downloaded pre-patch, opened tweaker and "intalled the patch". Had to download it again.

    Cant even find the precede folder, i guess it was deleted after the "successful" patching.
    I will wait next time

  4. soo when i log in my char is alll mashed an in a ball on the floor an when i selected it i keep getting in a infinite loading loop i dont have any of the english patch installed soo wtf
    why is this happening

    1. Yeah, im having the same problem and on top of that cant log in. im stuck at the loading screen. what do i have to do to fix this "Paper Ball" situation?

  5. "It will now be easier for Nyau to drop his sword."

    So many idiots who keep attacking Nyau and making him flinch over and over instead of just letting him throw his sword in the Rain EQs…

  6. Woo~, was planning to save up and buy the Yukihime blade recently for 9 mil and didn't expect this scratch to have it

    Average price dropped from 9 mil to 1 mil <3

    1. broken google translation so far:
      for rifle, bow and boot: PA · technique consumption of PP at the time of use ( ?% /?% /?% ) decreased, the power (?% /? percent / 3%) rise.
      for slash, katana, db and launcher: PA · technique consumption of PP at the time of use ( ?% /?% /?% ) decreased, the power (?% /? percent / 6%) rise.
      rest of weapons is unknown but most likely same as one of the two above or some other variation there of. my guess/hope is that the pp cost decrease is higher for the lower 3% damage boosting group. all this considered however, the end atk of each weapon is LOWER than ideal! booo

  7. Ok earlier i was able to get on pso2 right? Now when i get on hours later everytime i get to the point where you load ur char up and it puts u down in the arks ship. Well that load screen right there? just keeps on loading and loading is there something am missing?

    1. so what I did to fix that was I delete the win32list_do_not_delete_me.txt file and loaded up the tweaker then I checked for up updates using the new method and it fixed the character mashed up in a ball or literally inside the arks ship and I was able to load in.

  8. Prepatch worked a treat over here, thanks so much! Installation was 99% painless.

    Item translation appears to have been overridden again though, all current items are rendered in kanji. Not to want to nag, but any idea when that will get rectified? Again, thanks for the awesome work 🙂

  9. (apologies for potential doublepost, my last post seems to have gotten swallowed)

    Any idea when we'll receive an updated item patch? The update appears to have overwritten all items back into kanji. Thanks again for the solid work, love you guys!

  10. When I launched the Tweaker and begin the game, everytime the PSO2.exe stops working. When I launch the game in a normal manner, it works fine. Anyone else have this issue or have a fix? I redownloaded the tweaker and same problem.
