"Your Client Executable is Too Old..."

"Please update your client through the Patch Server."

I am new to PSOBB Ephinea and am trying to run the client in OSX through Wine/WineBottler, so I may need some slightly unconventional help in order to solve my problem...or its super simple and I am just not savvy enough to figure it out. This may seem dumb, but:

What is the Patch Server?
How do I connect to it in order to update my client?
Is there anything i need to do on OSX or through Wine/Winebottler in order to do this properly?

Thanks for any help anyone can provide!
HAPPY TO BE HERE!

You need to launch the game through online.exe to get all the latest updates.
 
Sorry...I don't really know what that is. Is that a separate program I need to download to launch the game with?

Thanks for the help!

No, it's not a separate program, it is the launcher. It'll be where psobb.exe is.

Technically... its a separate program :p, but as Matt said (and the news screen says it too), run the game from the launcher to update the game.

Oh, I meant to type "it's not a program you need to download separately", but it's 5AM and I should really get to sleep.
 
I have poked around a bit and i am a little confused, because the program i am using (winbottler) changes the game .exe to a .app to enable my computer (mac) to run it. I am unable to locate any online.exe file, and am wondering if the Wine suite is disabling me from launching the game properly. sorry if this is a bit dumb...im just not very good with this kind of stuff.

lmk if it crashes when the first polys appear (char select/creation)
then you have the mip map issue where you need to recompile a couple of wine binaries.
there are a few workarounds to this though
spoiler: get ready to downgrade wine, too
 
I can create characters, but it crashes every time i am connecting to a lobby - any idea of what i should do next? i kept all of my graphical parameters at default and didn't change any options in the launcher :/ thanks for your continued help!
 
not sure, i followed a guide where I used Homebrew terminal functions to install it, so likely the latest version.

edit: i found this guide online here as a popular, flagged forum post. Not exactly sure where ATM.

thanks. i have no idea how to make a patch or what have you...i might move in the direction of partitioning my hard drive if i dont find an answer, as i am not very terminal/code literate.

You don't really need much knowledge as Eidolon did all the work already, but if you run into issues it might be difficult.
