“Added an item that resets the time repeatable client orders can be accepted. (再受注時間リセット)” -> That’s bad as F*CK

“After clearing an extreme quest, you won’t be able to complete the quest if none of the party members return to the camp ship.” -> Oh god that’s good. But it would be better if: “you won’t be able to complete the quest if not ALL the party members return”

inorite? I can hear the economy exploding already via TACOspammers spamming resets.

not sure the point of making those various EQ bosses show up in the MPA section of the quest. they make it so that beating them there is a quest clear too?

Zynetic

The reset ticket costs 12 AC items, so I don’t see the problem.

Ricardo

September 4th, 2013 at 1:32 pm

They didn’t state whether or not it would count as quest clear, just that they would show up in MPAs. And I think it should say not all, so I’ll edit that.

Sophia

September 4th, 2013 at 5:25 pm

Sure, teleporting rares close to player, made mine disappear completely. Should’ve just grabbed it manually.

For KWT – My computer does the same thing. If you don’t want to wait for the download to finish (or are dcing while waiting like I was): go to the configuration settings and turn off the big screen videos all together. Sega is investigating the issue (http://pso2.jp/players/support/measures/?id=3406).

For KWT – 2nd by terminating the download directly, its possible to terminate the download because the game and the download IP are 2 different IP, the game IP usually are 210.129.209.*:* where the * is random number, but note that the game will try to re-download again if u do this if u re-enter the lobby by any way, including from Campship

For KWT – 1st depend on ur connection wait for the download to get finish and do not changing block u can check the bandwith usage of ur connection to determine it finish or not, normally PSO use 0,13kb/s with no people around up to 5-8kb/s with people around
