Mandatory question:

Who wants to try this with me? Downside is it'san MMO. Upside is, I see a lot of Monster-Hunter-i-ness in it .... the parts that aren't loot-hunting. So it's definitely got my attention.

There was a time, a year or so ago, when I would have jumped on the chance to at least try this.  At this particular moment I'm not really interested in playing anything like this, and frankly, I don't have the hard drive space at the moment either (assuming it will end up being some big greater than 10GB install). 

If anyone does take the dive on this, please let me know how it is, especially if some of our old PSO vets do.

Eh, I'm unemployed and could probably try it out with you.  Let me know.

I assume the UI and whatnot isn't in English... Is there an unofficial translation patch?

This makes up my mind for me :). I'm gonna download it and try to sort out the install/registration process. Will update later with  what hurdle(s) I hit. First hurdle: 14GB torrent and/or Downloader.

*EDIT*: Fixed name. Incidentally, the game takes a long time to download, then install, then download all the updates, etc. Loaded with an English GUI but threw me an "Error 249" which seems to be related to ISP blocking and older solutions on cursory googling seem to recommend tunneling and Proxy/VPN usage. I'm not gonna be dealing with it yet. Will look into this more some other time.

Turns out the IP block-drop was a too-good-to-be-true scenario.



Apparently the IP-block lifting was just a temporary solution for the SEA region folks intended for local people to be able to download updates more smoothly. . . or something like that. Further, they sealed up a few of the security holes/ VPN methods people had been using to get in past their watch.

Clearly they don't mean for us to be using their server. I will uninstall the client, therefore, and face the D20 '1-roll' of sadness.
