Free Quests still act like quests though.

edit: I mean yeah, it's certainly the closest thing to just being able to pop down and grind up the area but not quite the same.

10min Dagan extermination was a nightmare solo. 2nd attempt I missed it by like 20 seconds ._. got it on my 3rd attempt though.

Also I saw the cutest Rappy last night doing the free forest quest. Looked like the ones from PS0.

I just have changed that.

In lobby's you should have noticed a lot of undefined grey characters without custom colors and stuff. This is what that control do.

I tried 100 (max) with a GTX560ti with no slowdowns so far, and lobby looks much better with full customized players running anywhere.

I know what it does, it doesn't let me change it and I'm trying to figure out why. I'm running on a gtx670 so I know It's not my graphics card .

Outside of the planned Vita and iOS version, nothing has been said outside of Japan. Hopefully something out of TGS, since SEGA would be crazy to keep this in Japan only.

If for some reason you need to reinstall the game, I'd just download the nearly 5 gb folder, copy it to the Sega folder, and run the launcher again (got the file from PSO-world):

https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B_Qz...cyaEh4NXM/edit

Saved me a lot of time when I was trying to setup the game at my cousin's PC (and I had time to do a quick forest run before I had to leave).

I'm loving weak bullet for my ranger. I just need to figure out how to make it work consistently. Sometimes it activates, sometimes it doesn't. But doing nearly 4-digit damage is so glorious.

I'm using D3D overrider, it works like a charm!

Also, I tried to push the max character model on screen to 100 like advised and it really is better than the default, strangely enough. It slows down a little at first, but then the framerate stays pretty consistent.

I sent a whisper to twentytwo several hours ago but it seems like he didn't saw it :(

Could anyone send me a team invite? I'm Jubern and currently on block 2. Will be on for another hour I think!

Are the weapon colors in this game for show or do they represent rank like in the original PSO? Finally got a couple of yellow weapons and they don't seem to do any more damage than the green ones.

Not entirely sure what you mean, but I'm pretty sure colors represent the elemental damage type rather than weapon class. Weapons still use the star ranking system.

In the original PSO they used to represent the rank of the weapon, didn't they? I remember when I progressed through the game and found red and purple weapons I thought they were just the coolest

I think I only ever got one S-rank yellow... Good times! I wonder if PSO2 will have an awesome challenge mode with an S-rank (or equivalent) reward for completing it.

Yeah in the original it was like:
green < blue < red < yellow or purple and so on.
Then there were the special weapons, with various different shapes. most of which were though added in episode 2 on Game Cube.

Well, in the original (PSO,v2, Ep2, Ep4) they had the star system, but for the normal weapons they had different colored photons that indicated its rank. The ranks from weakest to strong were: green,blue, purple, red, yellow. The star system was really more for rare weapons/drops.

From what I noticed the colors here simply seems to indicate the class so Hunter weapons are orange, yellow ones are Force weapons and blue ones are Ranger weapons but I could be wrong :/

This is only true for PSU and it's handheld brethren. It doesn't work that way in PSO 2 as others have mentioned.

Does anyone here read Japanese? If so, how's the overall atmosphere and story so far? PSO had a pretty sad, depressing feeling throughout (a lot of the people you quested for died or the objective was dead, Rico, Flowen). I felt it really worked well for the game. Is any of that retained? It was sorely lacking in Phantasy Star Zero. Never played the Universe-era games.

I played the closed beta while I was in school, but now I'm back home and can't play due to shitty internet. The talk has got me playing Episode 1 & 2 on the GC again, though. Nostalgia-ing hard.

Multiple attempts at 15 min S-rank of Free Forest, no luck. Probably need a team of 3-4.

Does the amount of enemies you kill help determine final rank? If so, is there a way to know when you've killed enough?

Apparently you just have to kill every enemy that you see spawn, other that may or may not have spawned don't count... I hope that makes sense. I was able to solo(no ai team mates even) it by getting lucky(i found the way to the boss pretty quickly), but i was level 10 or so(and using that rocket launcher thing on ranger, it is hella powerful), may have been a bit high for it idk. Keep in mind though, with other plays more bosses spawn(have to fight 3 rock bears if you have 4 people).

Ah ok, so just kill everything that spawns... Good rule to go by. I don't know if it's 100% true, as I feel I've skipped an enemy or two and gotten S-ranks, but it's good to know I don't have to deliberately go look for more enemies and sacrifice time.

And yeah, with 2 people, two Rockbears spawn. Perhaps I should try it solo.

It's a little too early to say anything concrete about the story. But one of the first things you see is a random dude getting killed on the field when your partner waves at him to say hi. What little story is in the beta seems primarily driven by this... person of indeterminate gender:

I think I was just there solo and I think I saw you and your group run by me on one of your attempts, and a Dark Ragne pretty much spawned behind me in a narrow space so I couldn't really avoid its attack and got dropped just like that...

You'll still get the solo Rockbear if you go solo but add NPC allies, so definitely use that to your advantage.

Can't leave the main Arks ship without starting a quest. Quest counters are at the left and right sides of the hangar gate. First option starts a quest, 2nd option explores quests in progress if you want to jump in to someone else's party.
