Players not encountering problems when attempting to connect the PSO2 can disregard this section.

Tweaker users (and former Tweaker users) who are experiencing NP1013 errors will need to  run the following steps in order to run the game normally, as highlighted by Kyle873:

  1. If you’re using an outdated version of the Tweaker, please update before attempting these solutions.
  2. If you’re using the proxy, revert your settings:
    (Orb Menu -> Other Tasks -> Revert PSO2Proxy Settings to JP)
  3. Close the Tweaker, then download this batch script and run it: http://tinyurl.com/z9m9omr
  4. Restart the Tweaker.
  5. If running the proxy, reconfigure the proxy using this link: http://cloud02.cyberkitsune.net:8080/config.json (Orb Menu -> Other Tasks -> Configure PSO2Proxy Server Settings)
  6. Launch the game.

Keep in mind that this applies to users of the proxy and the Tweaker, as well as former users of the Tweaker. Failure to do so will result in NP1013 errors cropping up.

Proxy Users Only: If you have issues pertaining to the proxy, please check out their Troubleshooting Page or IRC channel.

  1. I guess the 2.3GB size is about New Limited Quest, Utterly PD, its collection rate weapons, Quest Triggers, and new PA customizations? Or only some of it?

  2. Just becacuse the patch has a size of 2.3 GB doesn’t mean that it will also take 2.3GB more on harddisk. It will also overwrite old data, so most of it will be unnoticed. So keep cool.

    1. Don’t forget there’s the new Franca’s Cafe theme for summer this patch too. It may take some new place on hard disk, even if the other features may not be too heavy…

  3. Hi everyone,
    I’m wondering if the servers are currently online;
    Since the last tweaker update, I’ve been unable to log in, as the servers appear to be into an “unknown” status”. I was wondering whether they’re offline or if I’m solely unable to connect for some reason, any advice?

    1. I followed the NP1013 error tips that were involved here, but still no dice. I even checked the source on reddit and read every letter carefully and repeated steps and nothing is working. NP1013 is still kicking my ass ever since EP4 was released with that GG update.

    2. i actually fixed the np1013 issue, took 6 months but everything is working just fine now.

    3. Never mind, i’m still having major issues now. I’ve been working at it for about 5 hours and no dice. AIDA pls help

  4. Quetion about screen resolution:
    My screen’s resolution is 1680×1050 and my resolution IG is 1280×920, which sometimes makes strange dimensions to characters. I’d like to change to the same as the screen’s but but Tweaker just crashes evertime I try to apply the changes. And the official launcher just refused to start this time.
    Does anyone have an idea of how to it? ._.

    1. C:\Users\[USERNAME]\Documents\Sega\PHANTASYSTARONLINE2\user.pso2, under the entry “Windows”.

    2. Nevermind, guess I wrote too fast. Tweaker closed with a “This will open two Windows…” (You know the message) but after launching, the resolution was changed…

  5. “Changed the measurement rules for the [Weight Checker] towards the bug that incorrectly measured your weight under specific costumes.”

    it -was- kinda weird to have one’s weight change based on what [base wear] layer one was using. I mean, I know people always say to “take a pound off the measurement for clothes”, but…

    1. Conversely the last time I tried one of those I noticed non-layer costumes basically have no weights defined. Somewhat amusing when your toon weighs the exact same in light beach wear and serious pseudo-Medieval plate armour… 😛

      Must be the same PHOTONS, SON applied antigravity used to support all the big bewbs around the place. :V

    2. More awesome than that, you made me curious so I tried… No difference here between any Layer or just Basewear, or “ancient” costume of all sort but… My main character lost 4… I know it’s bothering to find food and cook it now but it’s not a reason for that 😀 x)

  6. Are we getting that english patch for phantasy star online 2 on ps4 yet? I heard it from a youtuber Tennek127 Gaming about sega might put in a english patch soon. I mean are they announcing it at e3 or something? Im really excited. Im really excited to hear more about the english patch for ps4. Can somebody please update me about what’s going on if sega is working on a english patch for ps4 version? This game has so much potential but annoying in japanese language,lol. I really hope they put in english patch for ps4^_^
