The big problem I often get is that people make a Sega ID and then forget to actually register it to PSO2. So you need to log in and do that yourself (there’s pictures on that guide). Otherwise it’s usually the ID select screen that pops up. Hopefully that should help!
Ever since the open beta started, i keep getting this 12031 error code for the downloader. this didn't happen with the closed beta. I've downloaded the downloader many times but they all give me the 12031 code. do you know anything about this?
Yeah the downloader is a bit dodgy to be honest with you. There’s a few links to manual downloads and manual patching in this thread here.
