Converse with fellow players
@Dozer I used a tool to check what files a process is accessing, and saw that it was trying to access that, and threw a wild guess that it was the same file as labelversion.txt in the game install dir, and it worked. Lucky me.
Voila. Your launcher will work again. Repeat these steps if it breaks.
Popular items went up in price.
Less than popular items were hardly affected.
This is what I've observed as well. The price of practical items that a casual player might want to buy on the Player Shops has not substantially changed despite the Meseta inflation. To be honest, having the best way to farm Meseta be generally available to all players without significant investment means it's more likely those inflated prices will be more accessible than before, despite being numerically higher.
With a large number of players leaving for NGS, the amount of Meseta in circulation is going to drop significantly as well.
