    1. I always forget stuff. @Synth or whoever uploads the es updates if you want i can give you access to the ftp of the estweaker, since updates usually get me sleeping.

  1. After i download pre-patch , Is it installed right after download , while maintenance or after maintenance ?
    btw i download pre-patch 1571 file (1,36 GB) , is it right because different with the post above ?

    Thanks

    1. sometimes your internet conection skip the download if get bad conection, my prepatch is same with the info 2,2 gb and the now 100mb update, in the other world you must check file missing

    2. Yeah, the tweaker fucks up every prepatch. I’m currently downloading the update and I have 3756 files to go after restoring all backups and applying the prepatch.

      I was a fool to expect things to go smoothly this time when it has failed me every single time.

  2. Well, I think I have a problem.
    I downloaded the prepatch and now the game just freezes immediately after the Tweaker launch it.

    Any suggestion?

  3. ok, just launched re-patch during maintenance, few min ago launch tweaker, gonna download 24MB for pso.exe. now all BLACK. any fix?

  4. “qucross” ? the word is kyklos. yes, you pronounce the y as a “u”, much like how “cyclops” would have been pronounced “kuklops” back in the day. which should be familiar, since we have the two darkers “saiklonarda” and “kyuklonarda” (or however the eng patch renders the latter part of the name. the duo who wear jockstraps to keep you from just going for the weakspot to start with.), which are sega specifically playing on that pronunciation split.

    1. Mine i didnt recieve any. Might be because you got skill points that aint used before the maintenance

  5. I didn’t see it in the list, but the Character Info pane now shows the active PSEs and their levels.

    Not that it’s a big deal, but the first special ability is automatically open when viewing the third pane in the weapon/armor detail pane.
