Various Methods of Installing PSO2

# Method Description
1 Via Torrent By installing a BitTorrent client and downloading the associated .torrent file in the BitTorrent client, you can download the setup files that are used to install the game.
2 Via the Tweaker By installing or downloading the PSO2 Tweaker, an 3rd party launcher that we've created, you can allow the Tweaker to download the game for you.
3 Via the Official Launcher Installing the game via the official launcher can be done as well. This guide however, will not cover on installing the game via the official stock launcher.
4 Copying the game from a friend By copying the game's installation folder from a friend (the folder in which PSO2 is installed) on to a large enough drive (at least 60GB or more), the game can be played without having to install the game. The drive must be formatted as either exFAT or NTFS, due to file size restrictions.


As stated before, this guide will only cover the Torrent and Tweaker methods of downloading & installing the game.
