Now, after setting exceptions in our antivirus software, we will need to check the integrity of the game files itself. While you may or may not need to do this if you've downloaded using the Tweaker, it's a good habit to do so just in case something went wrong during the download process.

Once it has finished file checking, it will then move on to the updater. The Tweaker will now download the files it needs to update your game. The speed of this is determined by your CPU speed.
Once it has been completed, you may now play the game as is by clicking on "Start PSO2". However, there are more features that the PSO2 Tweaker that you can enable and install. If you wish to configure your graphics settings, click here to jump to the Graphics Configuration section of this guide.
The PSO2 Tweaker offers extra add-on plugins that enhance the overall gaming experience for PSO2.
To access these plugins, click on the button labeled "Plugin Settings" on the tweaker.
You will now be greeted by the Plugin Menu. A checked box means that the selected plugin has been enabled and an unchecked box means the plugin is disabled.
Here is an overview of each plugin:
|1||Font Mod||Enables the use of special characters used in other language patches. Not required for English Patch functionality.|
|2||Manual Patch||Installs the base English Patch automatically. This does not include the item, title, or block translations.|
After selecting which plugins you wish to be enabled, click on the "Save" button to save your settings and close the menu. Clicking on the Plugin Check button will check for updates on all plugins.
To configure the graphic settings for PSO2, click on the button labelled "PSO2 Settings".

Below are the following overview of the different settings that can be configured in the PSO2 Settings menu:
Once you have configured your desired settings, click on "Save Changes" to exit this menu.
