24 thoughts to “PSO2 JP: Extended Maintenance and Patch (7/8/2015)”

  1. Yeah i got that too and after i restored the backups the game crashed at the login screen now i need to download the original files, 30mins to go.

    I think i will stop using the "patch" just like the proxy.

    At least the translator dude should edit the "PSO2 Patch Compatibility" to unknown or not working, but probaly he has better thing to do and don't get enought money for it.

    1. Thank you for fixing the issue.

      Hope you don't mind, there is some requests I like for Tweaker to translate. All information regarding client orders and NPC's that dialog. That is all.

    2. The same happening to me, it happens when i chose a character. Any suggestion?

    3. This problem started cropping up for me too, but only *after* I'd played for a good chunk of hours and then quit the game.

      After trying pretty much everything in the troubleshooting menu I went rooting around the PSOW tech-help subforum where someone mentioned he'd solved the issue by deleting the PSO2 folder under Documents – I tried that and that indeed worked. (For me that's in C:\Users\[name]\Documents\Sega, YMMV.)
      That does wipe your logs, symbolarts and whatnots so might wanna backup those first or something, plus resets a lot of your settings starting with resolution.

    4. For those of you having issues with the PSO2.exe crashing on selecting a character, I have narrowed it down and have a possible solution that doesn't require you needing to redo all of your settings.

      It looks like whatever is causing the issue, at least for me is either the item_name_cache.dat file, or the _version.ver file in the SEGA/PHANTASYSTARONLINE folder in My Documents.

      in your My Documents folder, rename the SEGA folder to something like SEGAOLD or SEGA2.

      Run the game so it creates a new SEGA folder. Exit the game then from your old folder copy over the user.pso2 file from the old folder to the new folder. It will restore your settings without causing the crash. From there you can also add back your symbol art folder, character save file, and screenshots.

      I hope this helps people even a little!

  2. Any idea when they are going to give away a free skill reset pass. I messed up my hunter class and I really need to fix it. I am going Braver/Hunter….

  3. Is this new patch supposed to be 240MB only? How come this goes over 2GB? This doesn't make any sense?

  4. So the best way to get minimun fare of AC (Im not in spending mood). And get as much ragol memories possible would be to buy both a 60 and 90 days right? (60 + 90 + 5000 AC spent = 14 ragol memories).

    Also should I use the premiun sets or just buying them qualify? (Im not really into playing PSO2 mood all day because I'm into heavensward atm).

    1. That happens to me as well. I can log in, and get to character menu, but as soon as I pick a char and try to play the game crashes.

    2. If all else fails, try deleting the PSO2 folder in My Documents or wherever that now is. That fixed it for me – though you'll probably want to backup your SAs and suchlike since they're there too.

  5. Are Diabo Igrithys (In the new Limited quest for the client order) ultra rare?
    I was doing a few runs on N,H,VH and havent seen him, but he was in SH but it would take me a hour to kill it at Lv50.

    1. I tend to see Diabo more often than the Knight Gear/EX combo in XH. But when I went with someone for bingo, suddenly Diabo never appears. Sega knows……… :p Play for a while in an MPA and you'll find one. -w-

    2. I got one in my… fifth? sixth? XH run, and didn't even have to sacrifice farmyard animals to RNGesus for it. No idea about the lower diffs, but if you're farming XH for the gold badges you oughta find one well before you're done.

  6. still having prob w/ pso2.exe stopped working >.< tried all the of the suggestions here still not working T^T help please
