23 thoughts to “PSO2 JP: Maintenance and Patch (11/9/2016)”

  1. Which Famitsu issue has the PSO2 codes? The one released on Nov 10th (which would be dated 11/24) , or the one dated Nov 10th?

    1. It's the one that goes on sale November 10th. It's really confusing because there is a November 10th issue already, but don't buy that one.

      I would hold off on buying it until they post the cover on Amazon.

    2. Despite it being the November 10th issue, that's not the correct one. It's the issue that goes on sale November 10th, so basically just wait until the new issue comes out tomorrow.

  2. So… Did anyone had a problem with the Quantum update? For an unknown reason, it made me approx. 2594 files to redownload, like if I did the previous patches again.

    And it seems it didn't fix the Storyboard too… I didn't enter the Bridge to check but the option in the Menu showed the same as before the patch. Maybe I should try some checks or even open the JP launcher…

    1. Can you post an imgur link of your locked events? I want to see the one you have immediately available and the one that is locked.

    2. Erf, I did it but forgot it did not appear when we choose not to show windows on screens (Some are showing anyway…) Just, 089-C is cleared, the side cinematic on the upper branch is open, and the node next to the storyquest "Why are you here" have a lock. The storyquest have a clear mark on it.

      I'll take screens next time I log in if you still need it. Thanks for now anyway.

    3. Nah, worked fine for me.

      Run old-method update check or the equivalent from the JP launcher (they're de facto the same thing AFAIK) and then redo the Quantum so it rebuilds its file list, I'd say. 😐

    4. Don't know for old method. Problems that made crash even before launching began after two old method updates. I could fix things as I could but I just hope it won't do it again if I really have to do it.

      Plus, if the Quantum really redownloaded major part of the previous patches, why doesn't it change anything, no idea. Everything else work. New Costumes, Necky's orders and ED, Emilia and Vivienne too, well, everything else. ><

    5. From what I've gathered Quantum will do that if there's something wrong with its file/patch lists. Pre-Quant Tweaker did that too IIRC…

      Anyways, you might wanna check the Tweaker thread on pso-world for more serious "tech support".

    6. Well, it's the case. I updated three times with it and everytime it said "Download aborted for "pso2dowloader [WARNING]" and "psoZpredownload [WARNING!]". By checking the folder I could notice it have NEVER been updated since the first install, no matter Old, New or Quantum. Maybe it can be the problem, all of a sudden? Anyway, it told about two missing files, and it's these ones… I'll check pso-world if Tweaker Checks don't do anything. (Missing/Empty/Old… Erf.)

    7. Pretty sure those are irrelevant af, but that's some kinda permission thing. IIRC I recently deleted them because they were being annoying and filecheck duly DLed new copies.

    8. Hmm, so permissions "blocks" those files dl, who themselves block Storyboard can be a reason? I'd better check that too then…

    9. I don't see why, or *how*, they'd somehow "block" the SB… They did kinda screw with Quantum though IIRC, which is why I deleted and redownloaded them.

      Try the "fix permissions" etc. from the troubleshooting menu or just remove them manually?

    10. You know, I don't get why I am "blocked" on SB to begin with so we never know… I wonder if I can try launching from an other PC to see if it will fix it… But I'm not sure it will be a good thing to try. x)

    11. Old Method also worked for me. Just had to reinstall the English patch after. Probably just gonna do old method from now on.

    12. Got the same problem with Storyboard locked? But I don't use patches. So may the Old Method be my savior… x)
