Hello. I'd like to compile a fix list for the dreaded NP1013 error. If you've had the issue and tested your fixes, please post here!
What is NP1013? Basically this:
GameGuard detected something it thinks is a cheat program and terminates the client.
I'm not super smart, but a lot of people are. I just like helping out. I'll start out with the fix that worked for me. I'll include the name or link of the fix here!
Symptom: PSO2 runs for a few minutes before crashing and giving the NP1013 Error!
Possible cause: Virtualizarion is enabled (by default on mine) in the bios settings. GameGuard doesn't like any form of virtualization.
Possible Fix: To disable this, load up your BIOS at computer start up (before your OS) and search for CPU settings. Under those, look for one mentioning virtualization.
Note: I recommend looking up videos on how to do this is you're new to changing these sorts of settings. Remember, all BIOS settings things are different, so you'll need to look around a little. If you're afraid you made a mistake and changed the wrong settings, there is generally a "Discard Changes" option.
Glad you got it working. I tried disabling some BIOS stuff, but it didn't work. Come to think of it though.. when this all started, I had to reset my BIOS because when the GameGuard issues started, it caused an issue with even getting my computer to turn on.

I feel like whoever put this on the mission pass kind of missed the purpose of this item. I never played the JP version, but I imagine you could buy these or trade something for them, and they weren't account bound.
The point of them is supposed to be to give presents to your friends. I'm pretty sure they didn't realize what the item did and thought it was just decorative.
