SEGA really needs to fix this. and yes, it is on SEGA. it is just a matter of how the content is being delivered.
the launcher and NA translation assets are downloaded through the MSStore while the JP base client and update data is downloaded through the launcher. MSStore sees this as the game becoming corrupt and performs a repair operation, which takes freaking longer to complete than just re-downloading the game.
in short, everything needs to be downloaded through the MSStore. that is my best guess. only thing about this, is that the launcher will also need to be updated through the MSStore instead of self-updating. this could be inconveniencing for some people.
the best i can suggest is to give a normal desktop app for the launcher, and have everything else installed through the MSStore.
also, i really don't recommend anyone using PSO2Tweaker. for me, it creates more problems than it solves. it can also corrupt some files in the OS causing damage to your installation. i had to re-install Windows one time after using PSO2Tweaker. sadly, System Restore wasn't able to help with whatever damage PSO2Tweaker caused.
as such, i would stay far away from things like PSO2Tweaker. on the flip-side... the people over at ARKS Layer DID manage to address one of my concerns. in that being the scripts included with PSO2Tweaker were making unknown changes to the system without user consent.
if still interested, i would carefully read through the scripts they instruct you to use. i couldn't find anything harmful, but still, files and permissions on my OS installation becomes corrupt after using them.
It can create problems for those who don't install it right. And it can definitely create problems for those who don't read directions. The scripts you are referring to makes it so Windows can see the installation of PSO2 but prevents it from making further changes to the game files (which prevents MS from removing the game from your PC, which is the source of the problem everyone is having). This is the only way to fix it unless you go into the windows store app folder and manually change ownership of the folder to your user name.
As for your own installation of windows becoming corrupt, I can't answer to that but unless you have something really unique about your PC or your windows installation, my guess would be that you didn't follow the directions exactly as intended. Or perhaps you had other processes going on that prevented the process from continuing normally. It could be a great number of things, some user error, some not.
What I do know is that I've installed it on a handful of PC's and it has worked for months flawlessly. I also originally installed it incorrectly on 2 PC's and messed up my windows installation because I didn't run the scripts when I was supposed to and let them run all the way through - I cancelled out of it before the process was complete, so one of my PC's wouldn't even start.
If you don't understand what you are doing, or can't or won't follow the directions exactly as given, then I agree - you should definitely not use Tweaker. And modifying your own Windows store app folder permissions is probably beyond your capability/proficiency.
The only alternative is to either not play, or keep installing through the Windows store every time your game stops working... until Sega releases the client through another vendor and/or platform.
This is most unfortunate because I really enjoy the game myself. I hope Sega comes up with a remedy of their own soon. The source of the issue is the Windows store. And since Microsoft is not likely to change their policy and procedures to accommodate Sega, it's on Sega to find an alternative or fix it themselves. In that respect, yes, it's on Sega.
The Windows store is a dumpster fire and there is a list a mile long of games that break or don't work right through the store, yet they work fine using any other installation method. Windows even acknowledges that it needs a lot of improvements, and they are working on improving it, but that's too little, too late for PSO2.
We need a real solution now.
