REGISTER AND DOWNLOAD
NOTICE: THIS TUTORIAL INVOLVES AN SMS VERIFICATION SERVICE.
[STEP 1] Visit the registration page.
[STEP 2] Ensure 邮箱注册 (Email Registration) is selected.
Enter your account details according to the following format:
3) Confirm password
4) Chinese name. Visit a name generator site.
5) Chinese ID. Visit this site and generate a 16-digit code through randomization.
6) Chinese Mobile Number. In order to complete this step, follow the instructions from the [SMS VERIFICATION] tab.
7) CAPTCHA code. Click on the field to reveal the characters. Key in what's displayed.
8) SMS Verification code. Refer to step 5.
[STEP 3] Once complete, verify the email if necessary. Access the Download Page and choose the download button for the current version (ZIP file).
[STEP 4] After running the installer, execute the client and wait for it to fully update. Depending on region, you are allowed to choose 电信大区(Telecom Region) or 网通大区 (Netcom Region). One character permissible per region.
[STEP 5] Enter your account username and password and click on the large orange button. You are now ready to play!
Before you begin, ensure that you've installed the Beanfun plugin(s) for Chrome/ Internet Explorer as well as the game client. For the plugin, choose both options (left means install the browser extension, and right means download the client).
[STEP 1] Access the homepage and click on the blue "REGISTER" button. Out of the two buttons, choose the one (misspelled as beanufn) on the left.
[STEP 2] Fill in the details in the following order:
2) Confirm email
5) Confirm password
Left radio button means male, right means female. Last drop down is year of birth. Once done, click on the green button and verify your email.
[STEP 3] Once you've got a verified account, connect through a VPN. Gamania has restricted access to Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau residents so you'd need one to bypass.
SoftEther VPN Gate is a free app, but if it doesn't work, you might have to opt for others or paid solutions since Taiwan servers are not so common.
Ensure you've connected via a Taiwan IP address or else you might not be able to proceed.
[STEP 4] Proceed back to CSO2 Taiwan homepage, and click on the green "PLAY" button. You would be prompted to login so just enter your email and password.
At this point, your account has to proceed through a verification process.
[STEP 5]Choose the cellphone option (right). Before proceeding, take note that the call is international so a charge would be incurred.
Remember to add your country's extension before entering the number. Once the dial tone is heard, an automated woman's voice would play. Wait until it ends, then enter the 6-digits code in red.
The moment your account is verified, a popup would appear.
[STEP 6] Relogin by repeating steps 4. Fill in the name field (located @ UserU), then click on the green button. The game would launch and you're ready to play!
[STEP 1] Because CSO2 Japan uses the same registration process as CSO Japan, you could follow the registration tutorial from here.
[STEP 2] Ensure the game client along with the z01 and z02 files from the Download Page are downloaded to avoid any errors during or after installation!
[STEP 3] This version is region-locked to Japan-only, therefore players residing outside Japan are required to download a Virtual Private Network client to bypass it. Free ones are available such as SoftEther VPN that allow one to change the IP address.
[STEP 4] Install the VPN, launch the VPN and change the IP address before re-accessing the site.
[STEP 5] Launch the game through the home page (click on the red LOGIN button, avoid the Facebook/ Google+/ Twitter login!). Do NOT run the client from the Desktop because it would require an additional security step!
SMS VERIFICATION (CHINA)
