LPT: NA now has advanced features if your install deletes itself

My game deleted itself again so I went to uninstall it and noticed this. Kind of not solving the issue but still nice to be able to fix it instead of losing hard drive space.

Hrmm.. The trend of deletes is noticeable to windows updates / antivirus updates...

I love how the NA client deleting itself from your HD is starting ti be talked about like its a normal thing, like its perfectly normal for a game to uninstall itself from your system every 2 weeks while not giving back the HD space.

Perfectly normal for MMO's to do that in this day and age every MMO does it.

tfw you really want to push on it being an issue but the reality is you just want to play a specific game and theres no other option to you 😞

fwiw, the tweaker has the ability to bypass the MS store entirely for the download/install (aside from a file association at the end), which keeps the game from destroying itself on windows updates for most people (I only say most because I think I've heard of people saying it happened to them even with the tweaker), so that option exists at least. Still goofy that the official method is so awful, though.

@Akonyl Can confirm that even the tweaker CAN bomb itself thanks to windows store.

Is there any way to get the hard drive space back without a reformat? would be helpful since im missing a good chunk from uninstalling after the SG scratch nonsense. Thanks in advance.

Steam will spare us from this grief and Tweaker grief,

I gave up on MS store and just started using the tweaker, it's super easy to set up and MUCH less of a hassle.

@Ignigknawt And ye'r one click away from installing Japan basically and having it nearly fully translated haha!

@SleeprunnerInc it sucks because some of my friends won't join me for jp so I pretty much don't play pso2 at all now, luckily they're turning off Vita servers in August I pretty much played solely on my vita until episode 4 and every EQ lagging like hell on it. rip nostalgia.

@SleeprunnerInc Same. Happened to me once, but only once. (Tweaker install, not MS store)

@SleeprunnerInc Eh, I'm already too invested in my character to want to start over on JP. Plus all the JP content is gonna be coming stateside anyway.

@Ignigknawt They may or may not come changed.

The current state of the game already hints at possible censorship to content, bad translations and just overall more bugs and problems.
