Talking about datamining...
There's some interesting things about the smartphone version.


Random snippets from PSO2es. The game's based on an old version (it still doesn't have braver/katana/bullet bow, not even names for FI/GU/TE PAs), so there's not too much to discover.

That said, one of the source files has a couple of enums that I found interesting:
public enum StageID
{
Min,
Forest = 0,
VolcanicCave,
UrbanSector,
Desert,
FrozenTundra,
SubterraneanTunnels,
FloatingContinent,
Ruin,
DarkerBase,
Max,
None = -1
}[/spoiler-box]
[spoiler-box] public enum EnemyID
{
Min,
Krahda = 0,
Dagan,
ElDagan,
ElAhda,
Kartagot,
Breeahda,
DarkRagne,
DarkAgrani,
Micda,
Dahgash,
Dagacha,
GaWonda,
GuWonda,
Wolgahda,
Oodan,
ZaOodan,
Gulf,

Rogbelt,

Caterdran,
VolDragon,
BurnDraal,
Rappy,
SaintRappy,
EggRappy,
LoveRappy,
LoveyRappy,
Max,
None = -1
}[/spoiler-box]
Look familiar? Besides "SaintRappy", they borrowed the English patch names. I think this means we're famous? (Special congratulations to Mewn in particular, he was responsible for most of the post-tundra enemy names, as well as a lot of the areas).

Only other really interesting thing I've seen so far (aside from the stat name "SorceryReduction" seriously it's amazing) is some random thing nestled in the middle of the race/class names:
"ヒューマン" (human)
"ニューマン" (newman)
"キャスト" (cast)
"デューマン" (dewman/deuman/duman)
"ビースト" <--this one
"ハンター" (hunter)
"レンジャー" (ranger)
"フォース" (force)
"ファイター" (fighter)
"ガンナー" (gunner)
"テクター" (techer)

[spoiler]It says "beast".

If I'm not mistaken, beasts were mentioned in the game files as well long ago, but nothing as big as Dewmans (which even had base stats listed since like the beta days or so).

No idea if beasts will actually be added, or when they'll be added, they could be added in episode 3, could be added before or after ep3, they could even end up deciding to not release beasts at all.
The possibility is there for them to be released one day, but all we can do is wait and see.

NoiseHERO

If this game's based off an "older version" of PSO2's lifespan. I'd say they just never took beast data out of this one.

But if anything with the way dumans were slipped in, and how most F2P games slip in new races out of thin-air to begin with. I'm surprised we didn't get beasts sooner.

That does look like a gulf, but I've long suspected they'd eventually add proper rare enemy variants. Possibly for ultimate (or super hard?), but most rare enemies are too visually similar. I figure we'll get rare enemies that are more different, like org keratos is from org blan.

Haha, yeah. In PSO1 the tekker specifically mentions cleaning rust off of it, IIRC. They might not be releasing multiple versions.

Since there were 6 versions, and only one could be converted, maybe they'll give it a 1/6 conversion rate to simulate having the wrong one instead of adding multiple versions. Or, since it was very rare, maybe they'll give it an even lower conversion rate.

Why am I not working for Sega yet, again? This is gold. I could send these ideas in without any other information and they'd probably hire me on the spot.

The only thiing I expect to be unique about it will be it'll probably have a latent for some range-oriented or slash-oriented attack. Either a new PA with a single swipe with a speed rain hitbox will come and it'll boost it, or it'll just bloat up sakura or kanran damage. Or, maybe it'll do both by boosting charged PA damage through the appropriate Average or Weak skills, which would be hilarious since it'd apply to both kanran AND sakura - making it THE katana to have, forcing agito prices through the roof.

Dark Flow was considered the best sword in PSO1, on the servers and versions that you could make it on.

Neith
Aug 30, 2013, 02:52 PM
Dark Flow was only any good when it'd been modified so it could combo attack. Normally (if you cheated to get the Parasitic Gene Flow) it was incapable of attacking more than once, you couldn't do a combo with it.

Orochiagito was a bad weapon in PSO, along with every other katana, purely because of the terrible attack animations leaving you wide open.

I am however more than a little interested in hunting my old swords again... Found Yasha from a Melqueek in PSO once, I can certainly try to find it again. Yamigarasu would interest me as well, would be great if it drained your HP and randomly confused you like PSO but I doubt it will.

Not sure if anyone noticed in the large picture of icons, there's Chain Sawd in the sword section.

It was either exclusive or only 1-2 other weapons had it. And in the official versions of the game it was combo locked.

Well, two things
First: PSO1 didn't have bursting. That's totally new here. You might not have meant that it had it though, so I'm just being thorough.
Second: That weapon couldn't combo in the legit game. You couldn't combo the normal swings, hard swings, or the special at all. You swung once, then went back to standing around until you got to swing the exact same way a second or two later.

And it's worth mentioning that it wasn't even in the legit game at all. You made it with any max grind non-rare sword and Parasitic Gene: Flow. The gene - the important part - didn't actually drop on the official game (I hear it was unlocked on the JP servers, though). It's only available on private servers and via cheating.

And to actually answer your question yes it was exclusive. All unique weapon specials, that were more than just elemental damage or a status effect, were exclusive.

A few others I've noticed, Spread Needle as a rifle, partisan version of Silica Roses, sword version of Liberacion, fish (dagash/dagacha) wand, frying pan wand, Gae Bolg, Maria's partisan from the new route of chapter 8, and, some that I think were mentioned before, either in this topic or in the screenshots topic, banana launcher, lillipan riding rappy launcher, 4 sets of dragon ex units.

Edit: Did you check for data folder ? Some files seem to have been moved there.
Was clean for me, not a problem though since I uploaded the entire bunch to share. Still had the packed archive so problem's solved there.

The new katanas in the icon list, don't expect most of them to be added with the update, most likely the majority will be for Super Hard mode in October.

More crappy clothes, tho at least the new ones arent slutty. I might be interested in the blue gym clothes(the one with the jacket) but I have a feeling itll look terrible from the behind, mainly the butt.

If we get a proper double barreled shotgun I really want it to be a gunslash with a retractable bayonet, because seriously between additional bullet, being available to all classes, and the burst shots of rifle normal shots it just wouldn't fit.

[edit]Just curious btw, anyone else's precede folder suddenly get wiped? I've had it happen to me, as well as 2 of my buddies, so... kinda wondering.
Might be a good heads-up to copy that stuff out just in case though.

My folder was deleted as well upon starting the second precede download.

Great job, Sega.

Well having taken a look inside both precedes, it's not like some precede contained stuff not meant to be packed in... Probably chalk that up as a fuck-up somehow.

If you need to get it restored, I left Ricardo some links for use on his blog. Bit of a slower host, but I'll see if I can leave some other ones tomorrow. Couldn't upload them earlier cause some mates were downloading it from me and I rather not choke their download. lol.

Pre-patch files are removed once the update is finished. The site warns you that anything in the precede folder is deleted. They've been doing that for a while, so...

In conclusion, manual pre-patch download (through other hosting sites) is still the best option to take. So, thanks a lot for those who upload these big files (^ _^)b

That isn't the case here though, since it's not patch-day yet. In the normal scenario that happens on the 4th of September as you boot up the launcher. However this time, it happened both yesterday (release of 2nd precede part, 2nd of September) and now today as I booted it up. No files were moved. It was a simple case of /delete.

Strongly recommend to keep back-ups. So weird.

Well it finally happened to me as well. I still have the files from the 2nd precede while those of the 1st simply vanished.

So I've been trying to follow this PSO2-tweaker through and through to the fullest but it's been giving me nothing but issues... I did all the patching(To best my knowledge) and it's not working.. I downloaded all the new updates at around 5am and the Tweaker says everything is fully updated.. I go to open PSO2 and it gives me an error through the N-Guard or w/e the security file is called... I even tryed to go through and run PSO2 normally and patch it by my self like I had done originally.. somewhere in the midst of using tweaker and downloading files My PSO2-Launcher.exe file has gone missing.. please assist me..... Since I've started using Tweaker I've had nothing but issues. :(

Delete Gameguard folder, delete Gameguard file in the pso2bin folder. Relaunch game and wait.

Should fix things.

Well I've gotten past GG but now when I try to actually open my PSO2 through Tweaker it just errors and bounces me out.. I can no longer find my PSO2 launcher data either... what's this program doing to my files -.-

precede files are just files you download a week ahead of time so you don't have to download them now

you fix it by downloading them now

okay okay I thought they were something messing with everything.. now.. onto my next thing.. PSO2 crashes everytime I open it with Tweaker... what should I do about that???

Depends what you downloaded. The _precede folder simply got nuked, wiped, deleted, whatever you wanna name it.

I dunno if downloading from Sega is faster than downloading from the Zippyshare mirror I left over at bumped/psublog (find Sera in the comments).

@Kharix:
If you're running PSO2 with any translation patches, try it without first and see if it will boot. If not, see if the window that pops up has to do with GameGuard / nProtect. If so, go into pso2bin folder, delete the Gameguard folder, and the Gameguard file then relaunch PSO2 after file-checking. You could also do that Fix GameGuard thing that Tweaker has. Otherwise, it all sounds more like a question to direct at AIDA in the Tweaker thread. Check first if you can find some error log for the Tweaker though, should give you some pastebin link or something.

I dunno how it works, I don't use it at all.

The zippyshare link works perfectly on my end :D
I had experienced the horror of downloading updates/precede with the original launcher, so i'll never trust it again.
