its back up for me so try restarting
Status normal for me as well now!
Well I had the same issues and after relogging you will notice that ship 3 is down for maintenance. So guess an unshedulled servercrash, hope they can spin it up again quickly.
I been launching it via the Xbox game app instead of the microsoft store and so far didnt really have any issues. Even if the MS store says it needs a repair the xbox app starts it without issues.
This though is only a recent option, as the xbox app beta form only released recently for a lot of us. I did however use PSO2 Tweaker before the xbox app beta release as I was getting irritated that I had to fix my install a couple of times and manually setting all the permissions on files was time consuming.
As for Ship 3 until half an hour ago I had no real problem running quests, but then suddenly that stopped being a thing and though oh well lets relog and behold ship 3 shows being in maintenance. Hope they get around this quickly enough to adress.
Still sucks that the trading function is behind a real cash wall, as others said perhaps make it SG instead of AC. Especially sucks even harder fro those outside the US that can not easily buy AC because of the microsoft store not taking payment from outside the US without any work around like getting your hands on US gift cards.
And as other have said even SWTOR does let you use the auction house as a free player, and they have even more dubious cash transactions like pay up if you want extra hotbars etc. And if bots are your concern then I would say set a slot and/or level restriction on it.
i know that American soldiers here in their base. set their state in the adress as "soldier in eu" and are able to buy in the ms us store, but dont know if they use a vpn. too.
some people say that gift cards will work. i dont know about this.
Well you can just set your region of windows to United States and access the ms store that way. Then the items will show up. But you will need an US located payment option to pay. And yes if you can get your hands on US specific xbox gift cards it works.
But you will have to buy those from second hand market places and so it is not always guaranteed they will work. And you will pay extra as the sellers mostly put a small markup on the price they paid for them.
Can't buy AC even if you're a US Resident in some cases.
Doesn't even help those outside of the US, as for those contacting support is not even going to solve anything as when you set the store to your own region the AC packs don't even show up for sale and when set to the US region they do show up but then you get the error as shown by the OP.
That much for no region locking, guess when Sega made that announcement they hadn't talked with Microsoft yet I guess.
Oh seems I found a fix for myself. seems the vivoxsdk.dll file in the installation folder had different security settings then the other files. So after the install was complete I took ownership of the pso_bin folder and made sure I also checked all underlaying files and folders. Then the same with the other settings.
Think I also saw this in another topic being mentioned, but when I first tried it, it was not working. I will try to find the link to that post and come back here.
got the same error , trying to reinstalling now while i am logged into xbox live hope this will do the trick or else i am out of idea's tried everything. exept someone told that he installed it onto the main disk of the pc instead of a ssd but i dont have 70gb free on that
Well I did try that as well, didn't work either.
