Converse with fellow players
@DarkShadowRage Yea I know it is full of Xbox and PC players but sheesh, if the servers are full already then we really need 4-6 anyways.
it's not that it's full of players, it's literally broken, it's not actually full it's down.
I finally got it to work! So for those who are experiencing the problem where there are no error codes but the game does not actually launch after pressing the "play" button, it is because either the launcher or the Microsoft Store does not actually install ALL of the necessary files to run the game. I also have proof that the game works on partitions that are not your main partition (C: drive or partition with Windows OS) because I am running everything through my "D" drive (secondary drive). So it turns out there are about 23 files that were not downloaded through the regular process and that is why (for example pso2.dll or something I forget the name). I used the tweaker and ran a troubleshoot (the new one) and it installed 23 files for me and you have to be patient even after pressing "start" because it takes a few minutes for the executable to actually pop back up with the game.
By the way Ship 2 is always full...
that's cause ship 2 is busted right now
see I had no idea ship 2 would be this popular cause i stayed in the dark from PSO2 ever since we didn't get it back in 2012, i only joined it cause everyone said that was the one to go to...now i almost regret joining that ship
my frames on a ship 1 test since ship 2 is down but max viewing on models is set to 50 you can see the framerate on the top left!
Open the "pso2_bin" folder, then rename "pso2launcher.exe" to something else. I'd recommend something simple like adding a dash in front of the name, for example: "-pso2launcher.exe"
Make a copy of "pso2.exe" and rename that copy to "pso2launcher.exe"
it'll be located in C:\Program Files\ModifiableWindowsApp
Launch the game as you normally would, via the start menu, a pin on your taskbar, or through the shop directly. The launcher will be skipped entirely, and it will boot directly into the game, now with surprisingly less lobby lag!
this was taken from a reddit post and it works wonders!
can confirm this works, i was able to crank the max models up on ship 1 to 50 and have a constant 100+ fps
Just keep trying, after 10 min it finally let me in.
it's still busted for me
@DarkShadowRage hmm I think for some reason the server is full is the reason. Cuz I trying to another ship is normal
I read that someone on the forums said that there was only 10 active blocks on ship 2, I think ship 2 is completely busted.
