TIP: How to play Steam version if you're from EU
Alright. So as you can see, you can't log in with steam version if you're from EU. here's what you do: go to Steam\steamapps\common\PlanetSide 2 and open LaunchPad.ini and at the end, add "environment=psg" (without quotes of course) if you already have "environment=something" just change it to "environment=psg" and you'll be able to log in. After that you'll be able to enjoy crashing and other cool stuff since their servers are down.

EDIT: I don't really play Planetside much anymore and I don't really know any other fixes, so if this doesn't help, I'd suggest you to go to official PS2 forums and ask there. I'm glad this has helped so many of you guys!

PS. Vanu sucks ♥♥♥♥, all hail the allmighty Terran Republic!

"enjoy crashing" sounds healthy enough! ...besides for my game just crashed

it works when they get servers up. steam version is default US version and with EU account you can't log in to US servers. This changes game into EU version, but since EU servers are down, you won't be able to play and launcher crashes

At least I get one step closer to joining a game now, thanks mate. Now I can log in and watch the launcher dissapear and nothing else...
Skumer Nov 20, 2012 @ 4:01pm

Yes i will be able to enjoy crashes, yes its my way!!! ^______^

Has anyone found out why the launcher just dissapears? No error or any message at all... After this fix it atleast does not stop me with the account thing, but the game does not even start, not sure if thats because of this fix though, I saw someone else had that problem in another thread, just can't find it...

Crashes me while at that blue circly thing in the LaunchPad instead. And I still get that Planetside2.exe has stopped working anyways.

There is no file named LaunchPad.ini Only Launchpad.libs

Then create one/validate your game files a few times.

launchpad.libs is not a file, it's a folder ;)
