Armored Core V part issue

#1 Posted by Luca717 (107 posts) -

I just bought armored core v, and dont know what to think, i have spent a few hours on it, and am stuck with the crappy mech you start with, i want to make a lightweight, throw around mech wich laser blade and rifle, however i bought some parts and they do not appear in my assembly list when i go there, but when i go to sell parts they are there. i just spent 300,000au on a workshop or whatever and dont know what is going on, any suggestions? i might just start the game over and go fresh considering im not that far in, but if any of you know what is going on that would be great

AFAIK, the workshop additions are cosmetic (save for the 5 million AU expansion), though someone please feel free to correct me. As for parts, availability seems to be tied to your team level, making it a bit of a pain for soloists. That's the thing bugging me - this game is tuned for multiplayer, full-stop. Thankfully, money is at least easier to grab as missions are repeatable, and you can do the generic invasion missions for a couple hundred K.

@Luca717: Wow, that's kind of weird. I haven't seen that kind of problem in the game. Did you joined a team or created a team for yourself? Also, have you buy then from "Buy new part" or "Buy popular part" section of the shop?

@Luca717: While selecting the proper bay/shoulder/part tab, try hitting L2 or Left trigger. This will show all parts instead of just a category/weapon type. I still haven't figure out quite how the menus are supposed to work, I know I had my fair share of losing sight.

R2/RT (and apparently L2/LT) switches between your currently equipped subtype and all types of the item you're trying to equip. Just hit that, and you should see the stuff you bought appear in Assembly.
