    Default Hell on Release data for NA

    Yesterday was hell for a lot of people.

    Everyone that tried to download the release of PSO2 NA on PC got screwed. The Microsoft Windows Store really screwed up.

    The download took a long time. Then the installation, was even WORSE.

    Some people ended up having to wipe their PC just to reclaim the space lost from the flawed PSO2 game.

    Right now, I'm trying to see if it's even worth it anymore.

    It took an entire day to get here:

    And I'm still waiting for this to complete.

    The release date was botched. So there's no surprise that the game itself was given a 1 1/2 out of 5 stars.

    Now I'm sure that some have had a much better experience, so I hope that those here that did, would explain why they are running the game with ease to the rest of us that are seeing hell right now.

    I dunno, I've been running the game just fine for the past 7 years. Not sure what problems everyone is having, or why forcing things through an inefficient store and inefficient launcher could possibly cause them.

    Or maybe they just weren't prepared for the quantity of people downloading it, and severs got overwhelmed. Its happened with games before. Have some patience and get over yourself.

    Other games on the Windows Store work perfectly, don't exempt Sega for their trashy launcher, we have been using the Tweaker for years not just because translations...

    I've been patient.

    I've dealt with too many errors and had to uninstall the game as a result.

    The space that was used in the attempt I can never get back.

    I'm not about to reformat my SSD just to get it back.

    For some reason, u're one of the lucky ones.

    You should check the official site, to truly understand what is going on.

    If I didn't have an extra partition on my SSD, I would never try this again.

    You have no idea how bad it was for me to struggle on the SEA server for PSO2 just to play. Each day there was a possibility of being ip blocked. In the end, I just stopped, hoping for the release in NA.

    And now that it's here, only the XBox-ers are able to play it. Even if the release to PC is yesterday, there are still problems.

    'There are a lot of people that have struggled all of yesterday, hoping to be able to play this game

    Start posting solutions for those that were unable to get the game yesterday.

    This time I can safely say the Sega Launcher (as bad as it is) is innocent. The Windows Store usually downloads to a protected Temp Folder and then Copies the download to the Target Folder, changing permissions to allow Access.
    ... except it skips the last part for some Files. I had 3 Files in my Folder that where owned by "System" and only had "System" as the only allowed Permission with "inheritance" disabled. All 3 Files get replaced in the first 60 GB Update which then fails because the Launcher is not allowed to access the files. I fixed it manually but such things shouldn't happen, it seems such errors exist for Years in that store going by my research. Something like this is easy for me to fix since I work in IT and know what to look for but others don't have that.
    ... honestly this is stupid, going by how congested all three ships are there is some serious interest in the game and MS blew it just because they forced people to use the store. It's not even necessary as PSO2 uses Xbox Live for Authentication which is a separate programm from the store. They could have offered a ISO Standard Setup and make it clear in the installation that the programm uses Xbox Live (maybe with a check) and BAM. Skipped most of the Issues we have right now.

    @BlackPhoenix313 Uhm why did you quote your own post?
