Guides

Ongoing AC Scratches

Secure OTP Users

The missing menu button has been a well-known issue that has plagued OTP users for years. To help combat this problem, Third Networks has decided to release “SecureOTP2,” a new application with its own menu button embedded right on the screen! This revolutionary new feature should help ease the pain for Android 5.0+ and beyond. You can download this app for free on the Google Play Store.

If you are a current user and have no problems with the original SecureOTP application, then there is no need for you to upgrade to SecureOTP2. However, those who wish to create a new One Time Password with future Android versions, should install SecureOTP2 instead.

The One-time Password guide has been updated with SecureOTP2 as the baseline for the instructions.

    1. Yup we lost the concert for Matoi’s song. All that happens is a song sung by Matoi while a bunch of still images of Matoi pan across the screen with the ‘tube’ loading screen going on in the background. Oh and I guess the lyrics for the song are pasted on screen.

    2. Ok, so I’m seeing a lot of disappointment from Japanese Twitter over it being called “Movie Live” while having still images, so we’re going to change the title here to “Song Event” instead.

      Edit to add:

      Also appears it was mentioned before at the festa about the song being images, but I think a lot of people overlooked that. Most of the criticism leveled against it is saying how terrible it is and how it feels poorly made.

    3. I like to imagine they had something more impressive cooked up but then someone spilled coffee on his comp and they had to hastily patch together this thing as a replacement…

    4. Honestly, I don’t even consider it an event……it’s just a glorified ad for the song that we get boosts for

    5. while the spamming of her song isn’t particularly impressive, at least it doesn’t make it embarassing to be anywhere near the lobby like the dance festa crap did.

  1. Why didn’t we receive the ragol memory from the “Buy Premium Set Campaign #10” when it’s start, duration, and distribution dates are exactly the same as the “Spend AC, Get Items Campaign #16” during this update? Counting “Summer Vacation Login Campaign” and the former two I mentioned, I would’ve had 4 memories for the costume I wanted if it was given out this update. Now if the memory is given out on August 26th update, the discount is going to be gone then, and I still wouldn’t have enough for the costume I wanted.

    1. Hmm looking it over, it is quite odd. Both Premium Set and Spend AC campaigns are set for Late August. Technically we shouldn’t have gotten either of them until August 26th, but for some reason they gave out the Spend AC one early. I checked the official site again to make sure, but yes they both list the same distribution period. I would assume the 16th would be consider Mid August, but they didn’t put that.

      I’m sure they’re going to do another login campaign, so hold onto those until that one gets announced.

  2. You know, I feel more interested in the actual food for the Sweets Paradise collab than for the rewards you get. That Loser rice cake they showed off during the broadcast looked interesting. But maybe that’s just me.
