PSO2 Open Beta Sign-up Info


#1

Figured I’d make a thread since the other one doesn’t have any info regarding how to actually sign up on the first post. For those hesitant because it’s a Japanese beta, a full UI translation patch was made for CBT, and will be coming for the OBT. Also, most of the game is pretty self explanatory.

Most of the english-speaking community is on Ship 2, Blocks 20-22.
Sign-ups are open until end of tomorrow.

I get the exe I start it up I hit the big button and I just get these 3 bars that never fill all the way.


#3

It’s patching. Give it time.


#4

My mistake. It won’t go to the game until tomorrow right?


#5

You should be able to at least launch the game once it finishes patching.


#6

Can I sign up now and play later? I don’t want to play on my current laptop.


#7

I downloaded everything proper and have a SEGA ID. Now when I launch the game I get some kind of error message? I don’t know what to make of it. I sat through a long patching process, and I can’t launch the game. maybe because nothing exists yet to log into? I don’t know. I run the launcher, and the 3 bars come up. Then the first fills up by 1/10th and then the message pops up. Again, I already patched earlier today.


#8

How long is it supposed to take to patch this @_@


#9

Well if you are just downloading it fresh it’ll be a 4 gigabyte patch. Mine started working right at 3am! Awesome game. Surprised to see a Shoryuken forum on it too.


#10

Can you still sign-up now?


#11

This is the slowest download ever.


#12

Is it too late to sign up? D:


#13

Don’t use the english patcher in the first post. It doesn’t work for OB.


#14

So what does, mzennnnn?


#15

Man, I would love to have a working English patch. I’ve figured out what some things do, but I want to know the passive skills and what they do.


#16

cant read japanese, stuck on the menus. Put in my SegaID and password then some message pops up im assuming its wrong ID/password but im positive my info is correct. Oh well, ill wait for english patch to see wassup.

lol.


#17

Wowwww…
The downloader was going for about 5 hours, and it just stopped at 67 percent.


#18

Theres no working english patch atm, so unless you understand japanese you must play blind.

But also the patcher does take a long ass time, i start mines at 11am and finished 5pm. Although servers are pretty busy and most games kinda lag badly.


#19

It’s wrong ID/Wrong Password. Your ID needs to be in all lower case letters, or else it won’t go through. I thought as much after I spelled mine correctly about 5 times over. xD

It worked after making it all lower case. Your password is the only case sensitive thing on there.

I keep getting this error message when signing up.
