Did you install it on your main drive or secondary?
Converse with fellow players
Instead of just the MS store, they should have also placed it on their Xbox Game Pass for PC. Since it still uses your Xbox (microsoft account) and I've tried Gamepass and it works very well.
I do feel like adding the launcher to that as an option would have fixed a lot of things. Hell, people may even subscribe to try gamepass for other stuff. It's more of a Win Win situation for everyone.
EDIT: It actually is on Xbox Game Pass, for some reason, it would not appear on the search function. Carry on, nothing to see here
well whenever the game is fixed and I am able to actually install it and get in, Ship 3 is probably where I'll head. With the type of posts people are making about ship 4, I'm thinking of staying away from that server and the those type of people personally.
This game is not open world btw, it's instanced, and you can decide who is in your party.
If you were worried about a headstart, you could have just played the xbox version. I mean if you JUST heard about this game, little point in worrying about console headstart anyway.
I cannot think of a game, including PSO and PSU where two months "advantage" would ruin an economy.
The thing with All those other MMOs that are listed with crappy launches, is that they all share one thing in common: They're all disc based installations.
So unless you didn't meet the requirements or something, the game installed, and booted up. Now you may not have been able to connect to the server, maybe due to server overload or some graphical glitches, but how many of those disc based MMO installs gave you error codes saying that its missing a file? or uninstalled itself after you installed it? or (in my case) didn't bring up the launcher at all after the 11gb portion downloaded? None of them, because they're all older disc based games you installed onto your HDD from a disc.
This is defiantly one of the worst launches for an online game i've seen, as it feels like it wasn't tested and just placed on the store with the idea that it works on a console, should work on a PC. I remember Age of Conan being a PITA, but at least it was installed on the PC fine and launched, just ran at a solid 10fps haha.
Another example of a bad online launch was the original launch for Hellgate: London (anyone remember that?) Once again, at least it was able to be installed.
I've already tried PSO2 when they had the Asian servers with the English patch already in the game for like a week before the forgot to region lock it haha, and while I only got a week to play the game, I had ZERO issues downloading and installing it, and that was on their launch day. It's a bummer, it'll get fixed. I'm just more confused than anything on how something like this went unchecked or unnoticed.
Oh well, I still have GW2 to play until they get everything fixed.
I am downloading the game to my D drive as my C is limited for mostly my OS and some priority apps.After the game downloads I click install.
The PSO2 update/patcher shows up after it asks for permission, then after about a second or 2 disappears. On my start menu, it shows the game and a white bar underneath but it never shows any progress under the bar ( unsure if that's normal), it won't let me view the patching or downloading update.
I cannot check to see if the game is installing properly or anything. Is this normal?
