I hope this reaches the Devs somehow. What I want to let them know is simple. I had every intention of playing this game on PC until I heard it was exclusive to the Windows store. As an IT professional (10+ years) and avid gamer I keep bloated programs that aren’t optimized, and run poorly off my PC. The Windows Store is one of them. There are services that run useless XBOX apps that should all be turned off for a more stable gaming experience, In addition, updating Windows to its most current version (security patches aside) will constantly create issues for you in gaming as Microsoft likes to roll out annual “Feature” updates that are untested in the wild and only ever cause more problems than they’re worth.
The original PSO was my first MMO on the Dreamcast as a 13-14 year old kid 20 years ago. I was beyond excited to jump right back into this world. Please, for all of us around NA that won’t buy into another poorly built launcher, release your own or put PSO2 on Steam. We will not play your game otherwise. I promise you the Windows Store will be a failed gaming launcher in less than 3 years time, you will end up migrating off their platform anyways. Please, give us something playable. I wouldn’t even attempt installing it based on everything I am seeing and reading.
To the community. This is my first here, whatever you can do to help
