Converse with fellow players
commenting to keep a record, i am gonna come back and leave a hearty reply.. i have SO much to say that comes from a place with so much love and loyalty for this game and this community.
but i am on board this boat. and would like to offer some stuff i like, stuff i did like that should def make a return, and a few things that should be kept in moderation..
will take time.. but time.. i have not right meow
it's not so much that i insist... in fact... one could say it was insisted upon me when my apt got broken into..
this is what a buddy had laying around that he could give me until i got something better going.. problem being that shortly after i became and currently am live in 24 hour care for an elderly vet who was sent home from the v/a on hospice.. yes.. (just to clarify that isn't so much of insisting on using it but that current situation sorta demands it especially with component prices as they are, building a a whole new pc, or even purchasing a pre built is out of the question until hospice care end the way hospice care inevitably ened.. and i would purchase on of xbox variants if getting it going on this somehow is out of the question as i would hit that price point long before i would hit the "purchase new pc" price point ..
i remind you, this is purely to continue pso..
aaaaaaanyways.. lol ^^
t hank you! i'm gonna go look into that and see if that wll at least get me going..
(it would be one thing if it were just the latest version.. but.. literally could play one day.. not the next.. been debating on just going and hitting up blue burst and wallow in some nostalgia while i figure out a course of action.
again, thank you
well.. as i said, i THINK, the issue is avx.. (something i learned about when this game released)..
i have googled and googkled and googled... i can't find the answers to:
how to tell what cpus have avx? are there any am3/am3+ cpus that have avx support? i have read that amd fx series support avx, and some of those are in am3/am3+ chipset, will these work? i've priced some of these (fairly haphazardly) and some are cheap.. are these viable as a "just for now" option?
i'm really a newb when it comes to pc's.. been a console player all my life.. but got a hand me down a cpl years back and have been amazed..
well.. i guess all that is left to say is:
until i can get the help i need to be able to correctly (and cheaply) upgrade what needs to be upgraded. i guess this is about as far as i ride this train.
as a person who played the ever loving crap out of pso on dc, gc, xb, and blue burst.. it was AMAZING to get to play this last year in a familiar and nostalgic. pso was my very first mmo all those years ago and still among my favorites...
but.. tho the game be goods.. it's that community that really hits different..
until the next time we can meet up for runs. good bye friends
okay, well here's the dealio.. my current frankenstein pc can't run ng.. my "good" pc and my xbox1 was stolen a while back... and so this beater is the only choice i got at the moment.. soo.
(before we begin: yes i know it's old... yes i know it's laughable.. ye i know lil bimmy has a better one.. don't care.. it's slowly went from "alright" to not goot because of ish.. as i have stated in the past, i am sacrificing and being a live in care taker for a vietnam vet at the end of his days.. all he wants to do is die at home.. and i will sacrifice for his freedom to do so, just as he sacrificed for mine.. why do i bring that up? because "bro.. get the new toshiba drawers shredder 5900.. it's power is over 10000000000- you're a pleb if you don't game on this" comments are not helpful and there is an internet full of it..
what i need to know is:
i believe it's the avx thing that's causing the issue.. (i think prolly more).. as i said, i am a newb and i'm not sure what that is or how to find it.. so.... what i'mma do is share this rat rod's ish.. and someone please tell me the cheapest route to get the game going.. i can upgrade parts later, but right now.. i ain't gamin and need the shortest amount of money spent to get in game... don't care if graphics are all turned all the way down.. i just wanna get mah game on..
(one last warning.. this is literally a hand me down frankenstein after my last got stolen.. yes.. i know.. i look at this thing and sigh daily, but... it's what i gotta deal with till situations change)
mobo: asus m5a99fx pro r2.0 (an3/am3+ chipset) cpu: amd athlon ii x4 620 ram 12 gb gpu: 2x amd radeon hd 8570 (mostly cuz i didn't get the chance to fool with it when it was relevantt)
now, as i said... i know it's shyt.. i know it needs replaced..
but.. a new commp is 1k plus.. i'll go xbox first and get pc later.. but.. i think i can skirt by with a cheap cpu upgrade.. but honestly i don't know AAAANYTHING about AAAANY of that.| in fact, it took forever to figure out that avx was likely the issue,, and i looked up stuffs and i think the fx series has that.. but ionno..
so.. yeah.. that's the deal yo... how can i cheaply turn this trash heap in to a bit better trash heap and get back in the game.. cheapest possible but will spend a liiitle bit more if the performance boost is important (atgain, i don't know any of this and i don't know what to do..)
that way i can go to my uncle and explain what parts i need and how much they will be so that he can buy them (he's not gonna have much of a problem.. but i will.. i've taken pride in refusing the pay and /or depositing it back into his account when i handle the bills.. so yeah|
i thank you in advance for your hardwork cuz i've been beating my head against the wall on trying to cross reference everything while learning about it.. so i know what ask is a bit of a big ask..
but.. i can't do this on my own..
please help me get back in the game.. it's literally the "what i do while providing 24 hr care that demands i stay close to a bed ridden vet." and i would like to get that routine back with as little guilt as possible because i hate asking him for moneys, even if i know he has no problem giving.. i guess the saying "you're not helping out of the goodness of your heart if you are expecting pay or compensation.. that is a business deal instead"..
didn't say it would.. but that's not my point.. if the idea is that this is how pso is going to go once ngs drops.. and if this is the last little bit that is left that it's gonna get played in this way..
can we uhh.. :scratches neck like a crack head having to have a last hoorah long before he's ready to quit: what i'm say is.. . since there aint' gonna be no more of this particular brand of this right here around any more here in a bit.. how bout them shinies be you holdin.. i know you got a stach of them red diamonds.. lemme uh.,. lemme hold some of them colored crystally things for ya for a bit..
koi koi them drops in all flavors so that we can savor the deeper flavors we didn't really have the time to sink our teeth in to.. .. soo how about hookin it up with maybe drops frequent enough for quick farm and ease in making what we want.. so we can play around for a bit how we want.. shoot, give us hella augment boosts too.. we only had 1 year.. did any one really get to play around? nope... a lil but really.. nope.. steady oh that rush but not really having the materials to indulge much at all.. cuz we only really had time to pick a cpl things so i say let us play with the other weapons and augments freely for this last bit.. let us play the maps.. do all the uqs in a rotation.. we only had 1 year.. i didn't get to experience it as much as woulda liked that i could.. (there's uq's that haven't came in a while put some cool drops on it. call it a uq day.
besides who says the reason why we shouldn't.. and who decides it.. cuz they need to know it's been discussed and decided so do the boop boops that you need to and have a bit of a bye bye party.. oh!! if you didn't know you wanted a going away party.. well.. k.. now you do.. and you're invited if you wanna party with us, i hope your wanna cuz i'd like to party with you. cool? cool! so we're decided then! let's celebrate the end of game at the end of days party and have a hiya nice to know ya hope i see ya when we gather over there kinda blow out and do it going out with a bang.. cuz we can do it how we want it's our party together the dev team and player together make up the us..
and like.. i ain't gonna lie they had us in them first 8 years.. but like.. we came in on that 8 th quarter.. we did that shit.. we paid for our shit.. and that's why we getting that shit.. shooot gonna give us that new genesis stuff and don't disrespect the na pso community like that again! type ish lol.. i kid but i'm kinda serious tho..
how cool would it be of them.. and how much fun would it be..
but if they ain't bring NOTHING to the big party but some scab scrappins while content they nab grabbin but can't consider to let us just party in the game we love and have an opportunity to play with all of the things.. after how many party fouls.. while we done been payin for all the damn party..
and i get it. couldn't break the game.. had to keep it kinda the same run and such.. i get game design.. it was fun.. but, instead of letting us finally play the game you offer some outfits.. why?
yeah, roger that, same yo, tight pockets? me too and i think just save the money and the meseta for a bit after ngs drops so i get the boost and spend on what i know i want to spend on....
plus.. besides. why not.. what's the worst that could happen?
the community gets a small chance to experience the depth of the game that we love before we can't and have fun doing it..
and while we walk out of pso and into ngs we go talking about how that's the way that you do it!! THIS... this is why i'm pso pham and proud to be a part of the community to do it..
or.. ya know.. do it how ya want.. just.. sayin.. kinda of a pewp trade is all..
when.. i see that pocket of shinies a shinin
yeah.. motivational speech of persuasion and party invitation!!
ps.. you can deeww eeet
first.. let me express my dissatisfaction at how long we here in NA had a playable pso2, the way it was so rushed that the necessary handouts ruined what pso is at it's core, and how after a horrid launch we are ending with a "welp can't do that any more/ that was taken from us" bang..
seems to me that in exchange for our money, you are throwing a pretty crap trade on the table right now, all things considered..
allow me to counter your offer of "pay money, get less stuff" with a "pay money, get different stuff".. i propose that since we are losing content while we are also being asked to continue the support and fund a franchise we love and the launch of the next installment (and your pockets, lezbehonest) in return you let us have a last hoorah celebration with unlocked player shop/player trading/ personal quarters/ premium bonuses/ drinks as well as higher drop rates for those items that very few were able to get to drop.. there are many..
this would make for fine farewell as well as go a good ways towards earning goodwill..
a bit of a thank you for playing and paying and a bit of an apology with an appreciation for our patience and monetary support while playing a game that you guys botched (is there really another word for how it has been handled from beginning to end.. botched launch, constant inability to use shops, constant real money spam, and now the removal of content in order to force us into an upcoming game makes for a botched ending.. just sayin.. and there's more.. that's an awful lot of botch...)
would be nice.. not expecting it.. which is what would make it extra nice..
anyways.. that's my proposal.. do as you will.. me? if no gift of good will then i'm not buying anything till ngs and may wait till it's out for a while just to ensure it's not another botch..
but with a gift of good will i could see giving more in support..
and here's the info itself cuz they took their sweet time getting to it.. there's a bunch of dumb rules about storage if one does actually check that link.. somehow i have played and not ran into any of these issues, or at least didn't realize that was the issue at hand. so, def worth a click just for the info
You can set any one Extended Storage location as your [Favorite Storage]. Setting up your [Favorite Storage] allows you to deposit items even when you are away from the Storage Terminal.
[Favorite Storage] cannot be set up when using a mouse. The process of setting up your Favorite Storage with keyboard controls will be described as an example.
Select the Extended Storage location that you wish to set as your favorite storage by doing the following: select [Storage Menu] in the Storage Terminal → select Deposit Item → move the cursor [↑] or [↓]. Press [Shift] to set a location as your [Favorite Storage].
and, imho, that's such an odd design choice..
"let's allow them to purchase more space with either money or in game grinding.. but, let's not make all their storage available to them.. in field they can only use some of their storage.. and on ship let's make finding things harder.. and.. let's not tell them about these changes or have a prompt explaining how to favorite"
i hope they change that in the future..
