Seems Sega is postponing the update as a lot of bug were found so yeah...

I would rather they fix them than release it with bugs so I am not really bummed out about it.

addressing the hdd issue

Important to note info by Taiga

JP wiki says cases where PC won't boot anymore have been reported, so yeah... some people got royally screwed.
Honestly can't imagine how SEGA will go out compensating them. They probably won't even want to touch the game anymore.

It's like RNG extending to real life. We really dodged a bullet with our OSes still intact.

Ugh...this just makes everything even more complicated. We will keep working with everyone to get the patches back up-and-running.

I will keep updating my thread throughout the morning with all of the other data from the updates that will (hopefully) get implemented within the next week. Due to the fact that this is a larger content update that they are now postponing, I doubt SEGA will be having any server maintenance scheduled for next week.

We better get compensated for this, though. >:/

The game will most likely be down until maintenance is finished.

It has only been temporarily postponed, meaning that the servers should be remaining offline until SEGA continues with their maintenance after (hopefully) fixing their content deliverables.

This just means that maintenance will take longer than usual. We will still get all the updates you see in my topic and thensome.

As a matter of fact, our translators may be picking up the wrong wording and using 'post-poned' in place of 'extended' (it's happened before).

@Korazenn: Ah, noted. I was actually looking forward to getting the stuff in this scratch, so if it was being postponed much longer, it would have been disappointing. That said, I'm just going to let the update finish seeing as it's nearly done, and I really have nothing else running on that laptop now.

It seem to happen if you installed PSO2 to a user-defined directory instead of the default one.

If you happen to be one of those and patched the client before they put the block up, check your HDD and see if anything has been deleted. If you can't remember, download and install Recuva (http://www.piriform.com/recuva)to a drive other than the one you installed PSO2 on, run a scan of that drive, and attempt to rescue anything from the pits.

Im not really worried about windows files being over-written, all it'd do is bring forward the day I format my harddrive.

What is concerning me is between 5-6 different people, our pso2 folders all have different sizes and according to my network card I've downloaded 8GB of data in 30 hours, a vast majority being pso2 yet my pso2 folder is the smallest?

still, The delay doesnt bother me that much, i can wait awhile longer to see my waifu in a bunny outfit :3

Just an fyi, having looked through the win32 folder for PSO2, despite the precede folder disappearing, I still see files dated as being created today, so hopefully we don't have to re-dl everything again.

Because that has as much credibility as Sega giving everyone free 100 spin on the AC gacha for compensation.

If you ever did any kind of backup to your computer, it's probably smart to run that now. If not, check and see if your system made any restore points from earlier days and try to restore to that point. (I'm on Win7 and there was one created on Sept. 1 for me, as a part of the Windows Update process.)

From what I understand, in order to open the pandora box you need to have the patcher delete the precede folder for you. If the patcher didn't get to do that, then no harm done.

From what I gathered it seem to only happen if all of the below applies to you.

1. You installed PSO2 into a different directory/drive than the default one.
2. You downloaded the precede files.
3. You ran the patcher while it was working and had it finished the entire update for you.


I finished the entire patch AFAIK, but I installed my PSO2 to the default directory, so nothing was deleted from mine.

If you lack sufficient HD space, or just have a crappy computer and are trying to reduce things wherever you can at the cost of security, you could disable it. Not everyone can get their hands on decent machines still, so it kinda sucks.

It's somewhere in the control panel where you can decide how much space it takes and whether or not it's even enabled.

Hmm. Well, Recuva picked up some files deleted today. Most seem to just be Temp/Appdata stuff, with a lot being related to my antivirus, though it still seems to be working fine. Don't think I see anything critical being changed....lets just see how this pans out.

Oh, and if anyone else wants to test if their antivirus is still working, there is a "dummy" virus file you can get from http://www.eicar.org/. The file is safe, but mimics a virus, so your antivirus should block it if its still working.

system restore only makes backups of system files and drivers so if you are a power user, you can do pretty much the same thing with a windows cd/dvd so power users disable it, other people don't
so yeah, it certainly won't help at all that guy whose FF14 got deleted but it will help with the deleted registry

Sometimes you're suggested to disable and delete all your system restores when you're trying to clean some viruses. Maybe that.

Again, if you are wondering where your precede files may have gone:

"Have a quick look in your PSO2 win32 file. Despite the precede being deleted, there might have been files which have updated there successfully.

I selected all the files which were "modified/added" today (sort by date), then selected "properties". The overall size was 2.7gigs, so I believe the patch still worked."

In other words, it might have patched correctly, then deleted the precede file. Your game might still be patched correctly in that case.

mm ok has no precede's and lots of files with todays date. so i guess im ok closer look its 1.64gb with todays date on so ill have to finish the patch when its allowed thansk for the help.

Well, take the Eternal F Layer for example.
It started out at 5m and then jumped to 15m and eventually sat around 8m and never changed.

Long twin tails, 4m or so.
Went to around 6m on the second day and never back down.

Mikudayo mag, started around 3m-4m.
Soon went up to 5m and has been rising ever since.

I remember picking up a white beret for around 1.5m.
Went down to 1m briefly after, then jumped to 2m-3m+.

White gloves were around 1m at one point.
They soon jumped to 2m and haven't gone down since.

There are times I've picked up stuff for 100k when they're normally worth millions.
Sometimes items are several hundred thousands cheaper.
I think some people don't have space and want to get rid of some stuff so they can spend more AC.

Zenobia
Sep 4, 2013, 07:46 AM
That's a decent argument can't lie but most items increase due to popularity and once they have like a few people selling them and or scratch is out of rotation.

I didn't think anyone would like Eternal F Layer because short hairstyles tend to not be popular, so I was surprised when it started at 5-11m.
I thought it'd go lower, checked a few minutes later and all 10 or so of them were gone.
When it came back up, it was 8m+.

Wonder if someone bought them all out.

TaigaUC

Haha. Alternate translation from Excite (because my eyes are hurting too much to bother doing it myself):



I received report that partial elimination of the data in the hard disk which is not "PSO2"-related was carried out from some directions after the update data distribution on Wed., September 4, 2013.
The fault of the program proved in part that the data in the updated hard disk which is not "PSO2"-related may be deleted as a result of investigation in the company.
Distribution of update data is stopped immediately and I am making fault correction of the program.
I am very sorry for the fault of deleting your important data to be not being, and to be able to carry out an apology.
In addition, the situation which has become clear now is as follows.
Cause
Partial fault of the update program of "PSO2"
Condition
The data in the hard disk which is not "PSO2"-related is deleted.
The direction which condition may have generated
The direction which had download of update data started before 11:00on Wed., September 4 ?14:40
Since the contents of condition are crossing variably, please give [ which condition generated ] connection of fault to the following support.
Defect report
Measures
I announce, immediately after examining now the contents of correspondence to the direction which the condition which corresponded about the fault of relevance so that update might be performed normally has generated and determining.
Although I feel very sorry, since I announce you a follow-up around [ of tomorrow / 18:00 ] Thurs., September 5, please wait for a while.
I apologize for my having made you trouble to you deeply lately.


Measure:
I announce 1 tri-boost +100% and a free room item "update programmer's head on a platter" for distribution to all players with a One Time Password during this water update.

The precede folder actually disappeared before this update.

So ricardo explained me that the patcher would fuck your computer up downloading the pre patches aswell.

so this makes sence because i had to format windows 8 because it suddenly went crazy after i restarted it.

So

Windows 8 simptoms.

at restart:

Chrome didnt work

spotify didnt work

Windows defender didnt exist (i dont even want to coment on that)

could not start task manager (and when it did show up the pc would crash)

tried acessing metro settings, but they werent freaking there.

couldnt find any administrator tools "device manager and other stuff"

external hdd would connect but i was unable to acess the second partition on it. only the main now.

after like 10 minutes the metro ui would bug up and overlay the desktop, rendering me unable to do anything.

wireless card malfunctioned (still trying to have it working (using usb wireless until i fix it))

tried to restore to previous versions of windows. they could not be found.

gave up and formatted it.


I had pso2 in my D drive.

D\:Jogos\PSO2

Now moving the game to C:\Program Files (x86)\SEGA\PHANTASYSTARONLINE2 (had to create it tho)

and ill probbly backup the game to an external hdd.
