The theme for this year's anniversary will be the ARKS Orders Rush, an online interlocking event that requires players to complete tasks to earn points towards unlocking rewards listed on the event's official site.

Players can gain points by defeating specific bosses that appear within quests designated for the event. Points can also be earned by acquiring items from Gathering during the event period. PSO2es players will also be able to contribute to the score by playing certain quests targeted for the event.

Let's all work together and unlock all the prizes for our 4th Anniversary Event!

  1. OK so here's my problem; After updating the Tweaker, of course I tried launching the game but got a "cute" error "No 00" (wtf?). So I returned the PC to a previous Restauration Point before that and returned to, which of course didn't work to play (Better than that, it even erased the Tweaker so thanks for an other Restauration…).

    So, questions…:
    -Is it that bad to launch everything with the Official Launcher each day? Sure some persons here do that…
    -Did moving the Tweaker backup to somewhere else as Miikou says in the Shoutbox was a good thing to someone? Or closing the GN Field after after its launching? (Or waiting a new Tweaker version to fix a problem nobody else have? >_>

    1. Have you updated to the latest version of Tweaker ( I originally just turned off an option called Proxy Statistics or something like that under Options in Tweaker and I was able to play without the error but the newest update has removed that option anyway.

      Alternatively you can run a bat file as administer with this pasted in it

      cd /D "your pso2_bin directory here"
      SET -pso2=+0x01e3f1e9
      start pso2.exe +0x33aca2b9 -pso2

      Directory being something like 'C:\Phantasy Star Online 2\pso2_bin'
      Also keep the quotation marks.

    2. Bat file? as administer? I know nothing of nothing, baby steps please, baby steps! >.<

    3. Go to notepad and copy paste the 3 lines I posted
      Change the example within the quotation marks to whereever your pso2_bin file is such as C:\Program Files\Phantasy Star Online 2\pso2_bin (depends on where you installed it)
      Then go to Save As and name the file pso2launch.bat, then go down and change the file type from Text (.txt) to All Files. Save the file where ever you'd like such as your desktop.
      Then go to your new bat file, right click and Run As Administer.

      Good luck!

    4. I have updated the tweaker to and it removed the statistic of the proxy like you said, but I'm still getting that np1013 error. I just want to play pso2 again, ever since they came out with ep4 and the gg update i've been unable to play.

    5. Can I get a download link for the pso2 tweaker exe? i downloaded version and i cant update to without the updater crashing because of some incompatibilty with my OS (windows 10). I can play just fine for a while on the old version until i get the np1013 error message.

    1. Lurk moar pso-world then, IIRC Variant himself posted it there months ago when GG first started being ornery. (High salinity tolerance required.)

  2. Did GameGuard rolled back this time again? Or was it some luck? x) I've been forced to Restaure once more for some reasons and returned to Tweaker Deactivated the Proxy Stats myself without updating the program and even with GG updating after that, no problem for the two hours I stayed (My connexion is shitty right now so better leave).

    1. …you have never actually opened the Tweaker menu have you. Because it takes about three clicks of the mouse.

    2. No it's really easy to find. Click on the Orb and you'll find it. Or alse maybe you can try returning to Tweaker… Maybe it'll work again.

  3. … I have Windows 7 right now and he keeps bothering me to update to Windows 10 now matter how much time I re-Schedule or cancel the update. It even crashed the game while playing several times to ask again… So… I know there are people here having 10. Is it OK? Won't it create problems I didn't have before? ._.

    1. Disable auto Windows Update on "Action Center",
      never get the message for win 10 update

    2. *shrug* Win10 seems to work fine for me. If anything my comp seems to run better with it.

    3. Oh, and do adjust the settings for permission requests – not sure if it's GG or the game itself, but PSO2 seems to crash very reliably if one of those pops up and you haven't turned off the "dimming" feature.

    4. Thanks, I'll remember it. For now, I did as said, put the Windows Update settings to tell the new Updates but don't do anything or install. The Win10 update messages didn't showed again and no more crash. I hope it wasn't some luck for today and will keep going like that. For now, thanks for the advices. 🙂

    5. I have Windows 7 also. Ever since I got the GWX control panel. I never get bothered by those messages. You might want to look into that.

    6. Oh also, samsung PC's suck cause samsung is still unable to put out new drivers for Windows 10, this is why pro's avoid Samsung "PC's"

    7. p.s i don't own any Samsung PC's therefore this information maybe not 100% accurate since there might be Samsung PC's that are capable of running win10 even without new drivers whilst providing the best experience possible or so.

    8. It will work wonders if your PC "ISN'T" a old piece of junk or one of those not much of a good/known brand, don't take this wrongly m8 am just blunt and quite straight to the point person and i use Windows 10, been using it for years and for a Windows 7 user its a drastic improvement in terms of safety and speed and for a windows 8.x user its a turn towards a more user friendly UI approch(i've used many platforms and moved ahead), this is my personal experience on all of the PC's i own, currently i have PC's back from 2011-2015 and my latest runs on a 950GTX however i do have some 600GT+ series devices too, all run windows 10 fine and if you have an issue with wanting to avoid updates on win10 due to limited data from ur ISP then set the network to "metered network" in advanced settings of networking on the modern CP, lastly don't listen to the BS some people say about anything mostly they are assuming and haven't really used things, ask from people who have really used things to get some real facts. in the end it depends on what you prefer either way.

    9. OR – just use Windows 7 and *never* allow it to update to Win10 which spies on you and gives Microsoft way too much control over your PC and how you use it.

    10. I never said they "took control" oooh how scary lol – but Win10 gives them too MUCH control – like if you wish to install or not install a certain update – it's no longer up to you like it is with the far superior Windows 7. Most people know this except for Win10 fanboi/girls. Win10 is not for me, and it's not for most people who value their privacy – including many tech people. Microsoft is basically forcing it on people – that should clue ya in that there is more than one creepy thing about it – just google – Why Not To Use Window 10 – and decide for yourself people. But to the Sheeple – please feel free to just do as you're told by micro$oft and pay no attention to what goes on behind the curtain la la la…

    11. "Many tech people" use Aegis and don't pretend that they can fully conceal their identity in Internet.

  4. Well, the point is, to begin with, I DON'T like the way Windows wants to force us update to 10 no matter how much times we say NO. The PC downloaded something last times, I have 2Gb less in C: since that time so I guess it was part of it. But for now I said Windows Update not to do anything and just tell for new updates, it didn't bother again since that time. In theory, the date of update is in a few hours so I don't know yet but we'll know soon (Didn't put the PC on yet today).

    So, maybe someday I'll allow the update but for now I'll pass. (And I don't know how much space it takes on Hard Drive and mine is limited, I have to buy an other one 'cause the previous was already near dead when it arrived 😀 Thanks to the seller, honestly)

    Anyway thanks for your comments, I'll take note of your advices.
