      I'm having a problem with unresponsiveness. put simply, it's lagging out the hoop. has anyone else had that problem, or is it just because my computer can't handle the graphics? if it's a problem with the graphics, how do i turn the settings down so i can run it?

      I suffered 0 Lag.
      32GB Ram
      1GB Radeon 6770
      I have 3x 1GB Radeon 6770 but the benchmark gave me the same score with 1 and with all 3 running.
      My Benchmark scored a 4451.
      Does you computer meet the minimum requirements?
      As for changing graphics settings i couldn't tell you. I looked all over the settings area and can't find anything that i can disurn as graphics controls. It's possible that they havn't implemented them yet.

      I'm almost certain it does. of course, it is a laptop from almost five years ago, so that might be part of it. looks like I'll need to upgrade the frag out of it after all.

      We need to send a collective message to SEGA Japan and asking for an area to test drive our new characters. Maybe a small battle island to try out character movement with basic equipment and weapons. A creature or two to kill on the test island would be great too. Anyone agree? If so, then follow my lead and send them a message. http://phantasystar.sega.jp/psportal/pso2/msg/

      8391 at about 100 fps most of the test. I am running a single HD5770 on a 6 core. BTW is the test only in 720p windowed?
      EDIT: Nvm found it. ran 60 fps @1080p full.

      The new character design interface is amazing... o.O;
      And now they're making me think twice about making a Hunter instead of a Force...

      God, this is amazing! It's what I've been dreaming about and needing since PSU. I'd seen vids, but to be able to go at it myself...and the music sounds so wonderfully promising. PSU was fun an all, but I was disappointed with so many things. And PSO had such a beautiful soundtrack by comparison. This looks to be making up for everything!
      'Twould've been handy to know a bit of Japanese, but hey; trial and error.
      2013 come on, come on!

      When you open the client from your Desktop shortcut, a window should appear with 4 buttons, the 3rd being grayed out. Click the second button to open settings.
      The window that you see is the graphics settings tab. There should be a bar that goes from 1 to 5, with 3 being defaulted. This is where you adjust the quality. If you are lagging, slide it to a lower number.
      Now that you are done, click on the bottom right-most button, you should get a japanese confirmation window with 3 buttons. Click the left one to save your settings.
