i guess i should post that i figured my problem out.
in your installation folder there should be files called game boot and game.
i opened each one in notepad, saw that the dates were old so i just changed them to the current dated patch (sep 10 jp time) and bam, worked like a charm. no more error 20524
well its telling me there is a lobby server connection error, anyone else get that?
