  1. Strangely (Maybe), the game crashed when I try with Tweaker (Which have updated the GG), but I tried with the official Launcher a few minutes before. This STUPID launcher stopped moving after some secondes and a window with a STUPID (Yeah, stupid.) message "I downloaded the latest version of the program. Then restart." appeard but get off some more seconds later. The official downloaded four files (.bak of Updater, Launcher and stuff) then I was on with no problem (Well a 630 after an hour but that's all).
    I don't know what are these .bak files (And Tweaker never created it), and I don't have any kind of patch or plugin installed, and everything went fine.

    I'm a llittle suspicious about "is it really good to use the official launcher?" and I didn't launch more than once with Jp launcher for now, but maybe you should try, people.

    1. Looks like the Tweaker is back at service but is it stable and not risked? Is it that bad to keep using the official laucher? I'm a little lost.

    2. I'll take that for the "using the official launcher" part, but you see, I feel a little less courageous when it's about the risk of loosing about 3000 gaming hours. That's why I'd take advices before a decision.

    3. In the case you forgot our playing on the JP servers in the first place is a privilege Sega can, in principle, revoke at any time they damn well please. They don't because we bring in added revenue and don't really cause trouble.

    4. Well, you're not wrong. So in that case I guess using the Tweaker as usual won't be any problem… I read the Tweaker had new functions against GG (Renaming it and adding GN Field, etc) but it seems a new update of GG made it return like it was before this mess. Do you or someone else confirm? (I'm not on my PC where the game is installed so I can't try myself now)

    5. You're better off checking the pso-w threads for that, but I can tell you Tweaker works fine again.

    6. Yup I'm following the thread about the problem since yesterday. What people are saying here in the shoutbox is interesting too… Can GG consider this new update of Tweaker as a hack and report us to be banned… Haha. We better all go living in Japan, heh? >_>

    7. You should have learned by now that many people say very stupid things in the shoutbox. Also from what I gather GG has a long track record of detecting the damnedest things as "hacks" anyway (ergo odds of someone actually acting on the reports are low due to the tendency to false positives), and AFAIK that's also technically correct (by strict definitions at least) in the Tweaker's case.
      This new update, if I understood correctly, adds some further arcane code wizzardry to keep GG from noticing the prog in the first place so if anything it probably *lessens* your odds of getting b&…

    8. *shrug* We're (IIRC) kinda breaking the ToS just by playing on the JP servers, Sega just overlooks it because it doesn't hurt their bottom line or anything. This isn't exactly news.

    9. Sure… So let's hope they'll still think the same even with the little trick with boringannoying GG. x)

  2. the game will run for me through the tweaker but , I get a message saying the tweaker stopped working and the game will run. Then windows deletes my tweaker, I am pretty sure you guys are all having the same problem.

    1. I have the same problem, we can just hope that EP4 breaks Tweaker again, so that AIDA makes an update that works for everyone.

    2. Yeah well I'm not having the same problem, so there goes your "pretty sure". Have you made the proper exceptions in whatever antivirus you're using? Because that sounds more like them throwing a hissy fit over whatever not-entirely-legal sorcery Tweaker uses to do its thing than anything…

    3. Format C: then, that should fix it.
      Look. For obvious reasons Tweaker isn't in the habit of deleting itself. It duly follows that the probability of the issue being that *something* at your end is not liking the prog and/or something it does is somewhere in the vicinity of the Sun rising tomorrow too.
      Kind of your business to know your own computer well enough to find whatever does it and tell it to stahp, really.

    4. Probably overzealous AV. Remember that even if you remove your AV, Windows 8 and onward still come with basic AV from Microsoft that can't be removed and will always run if no other AV is on the machine.

      Also, FWIW, game's working perfectly here (as long as I remember to kill Tabtip.exe and Tabtip32.exe before starting the game)

    5. JP launcher works, .bat method works, age old Tweaker works.

      I'm pretty sure my OS is broken and that why the new Tweaker doesn't work.

    6. Think it will work again with an outdated Tweaker? x) I'm wondering if the Official Launcher can detect something like "Oh look you're playing since two years but you launched with me only twice, hoooow strange", too.
