Hey everyone,

This guide is made for those who encounter issues with the installation of PB2 launcher.

Install the Launcher by clicking this link https://www.plazmaburst2.com/pb2/Plazma%20Burst%202.zip

We first need to install .NET Core 3.1 in order to run the PB2 launcher.
Note: Install the 32-bit version even if your computer is in 64-bit!

What Windows version am I using?

Unfortunately, Win XP is not compatible to install .NET Core 3.1, which means you will not be able to run the launcher.

You will still be able to run the game itself (.swf) provided you have Adobe Flash Player installed.
Double click pb2_re34_alt in the data folder to run the game.

Adobe Flash Player: https://get2.adobe.com/flashplayer/

Win 7

SP1 is needed to install .NET Core 3.1

To verify that SP1 is installed:
- Select the Start button, right-click Computer, and then select Properties.
- If Service Pack 1 is listed under Windows edition, SP1 is already installed on your PC.

To install SP1, follow the guide in this link: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/win ... b972897f61
(Skip to Installing Windows 7 SP1 using Windows Update (recommended))
TLDR: Turn on automatic updating in Windows Update and wait for update prompt.

Once done, follow the guide in Win 8.1 & Win 10 to install .NET Core 3.1 and download launcher.

Click on the downloaded file to run the installer. (Most commonly located in your 'Downloads' folder.)

2. Downloading the PB2 launcher

Click on the link: https://t.co/8igt3x7f36?amp=1
Unzip the downloaded file.

You can use 7-zip, a free software to unzip files.

After unzipping, open the folder and double click the PB2Launcher file to start the launcher.

That's all for the installation. To open the launcher again, open the Plazma Burst 2 folder you have download, and double click PB2Launcher.

I will update this post in case there are any changes and/or inaccuracy. Feel free to leave a reply if you have any enquiries.
