Greetings, time and time yet again, PSO has run into some sort of problem and given my prior post I'm going to throw that one completely out the window. There is in fact an even better way to get a stable and clean install of PSO2 on any PC, Just How? In a few , I will show you steps that I had to take on to be able to re-install the game. Its really quite simple- No fuss no muss.
|CLEAN YOUR REGISTRY|
First things first. So - you mayhaps ran into that problem that the MS store app does not respond any more ,Or even worse, You just so happen that you started up the game and the screen is stuck at "PRESS START" and then you notice in the left corner, It also reads - "NO CURRENT USER" But, fear not this is not the end. If your willing to give a go just again, I can tell you that you will be like - "Why didn't I do this from the very start."?
The first thing you will need to do is to clean your registry, this will un-associate any registry entries made to a prior install that will want to launch via the MS APP .The easiest method i found was to use a registry cleaner Like for instance CC Cleaner From pinform. GET IT HERE ( Make sure that you get the free version.)
Now that is done, We have to ensure that you are signed into ALL of the Xbox services and there are 3 in total that you will need.
|THE XBOX COMPANION APP||DOWNLOAD HERE|
|THE XBOX CONSOLE APP||DOWNLOAD HERE|
|XBOX GAMING SERVICES||DOWNLOAD HERE|
As you DL and install each one, Make sure that you are signed in to all of them and Don't worry, Any character progress that you have made in game is SERVER side based, which means even if you log in from another location, you can still play all of your own characters.
Lastly, Open the Xbox app, In the top search windows, Search query for PSO2 , after it pops up, Click install and - that's it. The PSO2 launcher is INSTANTLY installed. Yes all 11 GB's worth. Now- Go ahead and run PSO2, Notice how the Launcher is updating the game and should take only 45 minutes or so, Not Like I had to endure 11 1/2 hours. Trust me, I dont wish that on anyone.
THIS IS WHAT THE SCREEN LOOKS LIKE WHEN YOU OPEN IT.
Once the game has finished installing, that's it. You are good to go.
