I'm thankful we've come a long way from "story patch replaced a bunch of stuff with MLP references for six months as a 'joke'".

Pretty sure they're account-wide because it's based on a title, and that carries with you even across ships.

e: Must be because I don't have a 75 Tech class on one character but got Hero on them back when that was part of the requirement (other character had Summoner at 75)

Alts can be nice just for having different fashion options, but also the weekly money from the new ARKS Missions is per character which is uh..2m each?

Oh, literally nothing? The anime was just an ad for the game, the premise is just 'characters playing hit video game phantasy star online 2,' there's absolutely no need to play it to follow the game's plot or anything and there's not a ton of collaborations or crossovers with it. It's just a cheap 22-minute ad they aired for a few months.

No, it does tie in to the Ep 4 story with some significance (and a bit in Ep5 later).

You still do not need to and indeed should not watch it.

I'll play it to hang out with people sometimes, but I won't be burning my account on this server any time soon. I still remember Phantasy Star Universe's Xbox360 server, and that was only 3 months behind the Japanese server to start.

To say nothing of Eternal Christmas.

Everything is coming over, at least that's what the trailer suggested when it said "all the content".

I wouldn't take it to mean that as such. It's mostly just assuaging fears that it'd be stuck in Ep2 forever like SEA.

The other thing with Support Partners is, you can make a tiny personbot that you can throw gear onto and level by sending them out on Client Orders and also bring with you on quests. Sometimes they show up in E-Trials also, which is fun if you made a tiny Hank Hill.

You can register a copy of yourself as a supporter and friends and randos can bring them along. So you're not just limited to the story partners.

It's pretty clear, especially when you look at Portable 2/Infinity as the missing link/testbed between them.

Portable 2 was pretty fun. Lots of hackers though so I was always scared of guilt by association whenever I played online.

The good news is that you were hard pressed to find them amongst all the "looking for girlfriend" lobbies.

My favourite thing though was that the online pass never actually worked, you could play online just fine without it and they never fixed that

That..was not a gear thing, strictly speaking. If you're using robot bits then once you start running (hovering) it stops; if you're using fleshy clothes then I don't think it plays at all.

Yeah as far as I can tell "US version" is just called that because the US is the only English speaking country as far as the internet is concerned; there's no separate version or region lock.

Race mattered for about two months in Ep1 and hasn't since.

Before I jump into this is there any way to irreparably screw up my character? I know basically nothing about the game, are there skills and respecing?

The only two ways are your Mag and your class' skill tree. Both can be fixed (buy a new Mag or sacrifice excubes (decently common lategame currency), class reset passes which are semi-regularly given out anyway or you can pay a buck or something).

What the hell is with installing this game? Last night I predownload for an hour. I was able to "start" it but all the ships were offline. Today I try to get my character in before work and avast calls it a virus and throws it into the virus chest. I restore it, but now I can't get the launcher to open. The PSO2 file in my start menu is all glitched out and trying to launch from the microsoft store does nothing. I go to uninstall the game, by which I mean uninstall the installer. A bug happens where something can't uninstall but eventually the installer stops showing up in add/remove programs. Then I see my drive is nearly full and cannot find any of the data anywhere, eventually using a program that shows directories and how much data they have, introducing me to the microsoftapps folder that I cannot access. Eventually I go gently caress it and try reinstalling the installer, which then proceeds to install the entire game again. Then I have to go to work. I come home from work and I can start up the game, but now I'm wondering why there is a phantom 200 gigs missing from my drive. I do the posted fix to letting myself actually have permission to access my own loving files and see that the game has installed itself 4 times on my drive.

Now I've gone and deleted them all thinking the real game was in the newly created modifiedwindowsapps. But it isn't. Now I gotta download the game a fifth god drat time and hope it sticks.

For one thing you should uninstall Avast, third party AV is useless and causes nothing but problems
