PLANETSIDE 2 Error 4-503 Fix Workaround


Error  (4-503):

LaunchPad was unable to connect. Please check the network connection or try again later. If the problem persists, please visithttps://help.daybreakgames.com for assistance.


This error stated appearing few months back and it’s been a pain to deal with, after researching and scouting various forums I found the below mentioned 3 workarounds, the third one works for me now, earlier the second one used to work, so chances are that one of the three should work for you. (I would recommend the “Solution 3” – watch the Video)

Solution 1

·         Go to game directory, delete or rename launchpad.exe
·         Rename launchpad.exe.bak to launchpad.exe
·         Launch the game, this might slightly longer than usual, this is because it’s downloading the 1 mb launchpad.exe.bak file.


Solution 2

·         Download the FILE
·         Go to the game directory and paste the “npdg0act.dll” file in there.
·         Login into planeside with your credentials and it should work after a small update.
·          If it doesn’t work the second or consecutive time, you may need to delete the “npdg0act” file and then try the launchpad. It’s very sporadic, try both.

Solution 3

·         Go to the game directory and delete the “LaunchPad.exe” file
·         Download and Run the “PS2_setup.exe” file. (https://www.planetside2.com)
·         Choose the “Reinstall/Repair” option
·         You may or may not choose to install direct X
·         The “launchPad” should give the “Play” option after a small download.

Watch the below Video if you prefer watching the Movie rather than reading the Book J


Note that all of the above solutions are one time - every time, what this means is that once you quit the game, you would once again need to follow the respective solution again for the game to launch. (In some situations a PC restart might be required)

It’s only when Daybreak games decides to provide an update to fix this issue would launching PlanetSide 2 become hassle free till then I hope the workarounds mentioned above does the job for you my fellow gamer. See you in Planetside TR – Diabolicmark.

A special thank you to the people from various forums that came up with these workarounds, apologies for not making a note of your names, but thank you once again, I can now game in peace without being frustrated J Hope You can too J

Sons of Skyrim Lyrics

Dragonborn Dragonborn
By his honor is sworn
To keep evil forever at bay
And the fiercest foes rout
When they hear triumph's shout
Dragonborn for your blessing we pray

And the scrolls have fortold
Of black wings in the cold
That when brothers wage war come unfurled
Alduin bane of kings
Ancient shadow unbound
With a hunger to swallow the world


Dragon Language

Dovahkiin Dovahkiin
Naal ok zin los vahriin
Wah dein vokul mahfaeraak ahst vaal
Ahrk fin norok paal graan
Fod nust hon zindro zaan
Dovahkiin fah hin kogaan mu draal

Ahrk fin kel lost prodah
Do ved viing ko fin krah
Tol fod zeymah win kein meyz fundein
Alduin feyn do jun
Kruziik vokun staadnau
Voth aan bahlok wah diivon fin lein

How To Install Skyrim Body Mods

Skyrim Nexus

This Skyrim Game Guide will help you install a Custom Body Replacer for both Female body and Male body, it’s important to follow the steps in the right order to avoid having to troubleshoot later. There are suggested Skyrim Mods for textures and Armour, the popular ones being CBBE and UNP textures; And of course the UNP and CBBE Armour mods. The suggested Skyrim mods are based on personal preference feel free to use the ones that suit your taste, if you download a mod from Skyrim Nexus don’t forget to Endorse, a lot of time and effort goes into making these mods... Cheers...

Step 1

Install a Skeleton that is compatible with the required Body Mesh Type and the respective Actor Animation.
XP32 Maximum Skeleton Extended is one the best since it supports almost all of the Body mesh types; it also supports BBP (Breast and Butt Physic), TBBP (Tender Breast and Butt Physic) and HDT-PE (HDT Physics Extension) enabled Bodies
After XP32 left the modding community Groovtama took over and the most recent skeleton is called Groovtama’s XP32 Maximum Skeleton Extended aka XPMSE

Step 1.1 

How to Install XPMSE

There are certain pre- requisites that need to be met for the XPMSE to function correctly; failing to meet these requirements will result in “Crash to Desktop” (CTD).
Install the below mentioned Mods before XPMSE

     b)      Fores New Idles in Skyrim

Recommended Mods to make use of all the XPMSE Features (For In-Game Weapon position switching)

a)      SKSE 1.7.1
b)      RaceMenu 2.9.6

Once the above requirements have been met Install the XPMS mod and choose the respective options depending upon your requirement.


Step 2

Install the HDT Physics Extensions – HDT-PE is a SKSE plugin that applies the existing Havok physics engine used in Skyrim. It facilities- Swishing hair, flowing skirts, Bouncing Pony Tail, BBP etc


Step 3

Body Mesh Replacer

This is essentially the body mesh shape that will overlay on the XPMSE.
There are a lot of body shapes available for both Male and Female actors, this can be confusing at times, listed below are some of the Body Shapes along with a basic description.

Step 3.1

FEMALE BODY REPLACERS

CBBE Body

    1)     CBBE - Calientes Big Bottom Edition
   
    CBBE – Vanilla
    CBBE – Slim
    CBBE – Curvy
    CBBE comes with BodySlide - An application that allows you to customize the body shape to  have pretty much any proportions you want.

UNP Body

    2)     UNP – UNpretend also called as Dimonized UNP
 
   UNPS – UNP – Slim
   UNPB – UNP Blessed (Bigger Breasts)
   UNPC – UNP Curvy (Bigger Hips)
   UNPB-BBP – UNPB with Breast and Butt Physics

    4)      CHSBHC - Cherry Hotaling’s Super Busty H Cup

    5)    7B/ SeveNBaseSevennity's designed  Body shapes -  A custom body replacer    
specifically tweaked to emphasis wider shoulder, bigger breast and full thigh simulating a             strong (not too muscular) and sensuous Amazonian woman.

    6)   Manga Body - A Custom CBBE and ADEC Body – This is one of those out of proportion  
 body shapes IMO, large breasts, thin waistline and regular butt. Although these proportions        can be modified depending on one’s preference using Body Slide.

    7)   CNHF - Calyps and Nuskas Heroic Form – A body shape that looks the part of a Hero a  
         beautiful and muscular body replacer.


Step 3.2 

MALE BODY REPLACERS

    2)      Males by Thegal – The body mesh contains minor modifications to the Vanilla Body mesh.

Step 4

Types of Skin textures

Skyrim Textures

The important thing to remember is that the Textures need to match the skyrim Body mod shape, for example a CBBE body shape will need CBBE compatible textures, failing to do so will lead to seams and other visible deformities.
