    Maintenance has concluded for May 27th, 2018.

    It took longer than the expected 20 to 30 minutes (more like over an hour), but the following changes were made to the game:

    - Seasons shop is now LIVE! You can find it under Episode 2's "Shop" category.
    (You will be able to buy various skins for weapons, paint for rings, and other things here. Thanks, @Matt !)
    - The Blizzard special for weapons has been buffed a bit. (Should now match the activation rates of Arrest.)
    - Red box leaderboard has been reset.
    - For the English Unitxt file, S-Rank weapon names have now become ALL CAPS ENTIRELY.
    - A limit on rapid game creation has been applied. If you create a game, you will have wait another 2 minutes and 30 seconds before you can create another one.
    (Disabled temporarily)- You no longer will need BGM on to hear the rare drop jingles.

    Behind the scenes, new code was added for updating PMT information on the client (Thanks to @Soly !). Our previous code seemed to bug out the shops when adding new weapons to the game. This is what took so long for the maintenance!

    Anyhow, please enjoy playing on Ephinea!

    Damn, Paints for only 1 Point makes me soooo happy! =)

    Two tings:
    1.) Now that Blizzard is as good as Arrest, the price for adding the Blizzard Special to S-Ranks should probably be raised.

    2.) The 2.5 minute cooldown really hurts players that use multiple banks for their stuff (which, I guess, almost everyone does). When I need to bank my stuff in order to swap to a new character, I now have to wait 2.5 minutes. That's kinda bad, but if the "reader-abusing" really was that bad, I guess something like this needed to be done.

    The game creation limitation is probably needed, otherwise I imagine (it's purpose from my guess) they'd have to nerf PW3's boxes among possibly other abuseable things. There had to be some kind of compromise there eventually. -shrug-

    The reason why this limit was set in place was that people abused certain readers to check for rare enemies upon starting a quest.

    I don't think the admins see PW3's boxes as a problem since you still need to get to them, break them open, and collect the things. Not like you can check box contents with a reader.

    I don't use cheaters readers so wouldn't know they were doing that. :^) Jokes aside, I predicted this with Matt months ago when I was still GM, I knew ppl would eventually use readers to check for rare enemies even beyond Saint million boss entry. The reader should be blocked now imo, because that's basically really is allowing cheating. If that really is the sole reason it's basically imposing a limitation on others because some choose to not play fair.

    If you re-patch your game through the launcher, the tekking images will be fixed. Just updated the DLL.

    Sorry about that. Re: The animation for Sorcerer's Cane, could be some hard-coded thing in the client. Maybe tofuman or Matt can look into it. (A little busy, at the moment.)

    Gallon's Shop crash has been fixed, you will have to patch again on the patch server to get latest DLL, but rare item drop noise has been completely disabled as a result. We'll have a fix "soon".

    I decided that since it took so long, I'd dock the prices of the paints to 1 for compensation. Permanent change.

    When I get home, I'll make a proper thread to list everything and what it does and can be combined with etc.

    *Evil fanged giggle!* This reminds mew of a comical scene in a lobby 10 years ago when EvilNight and Lee/Grumpy-kins were arguing about "GM's". This was the moment in time where Lee/Grumpy-kins had ascended from GM to ADMIN....Had the ENTIRE Convo saved on mews other PC before joining Ephinea.....but the end result went something like this.... EvilNight: "Even a CHIMP can be a GM...". Lee/Grumpy-kins: */kicks EvilNight* ... *2 seconds after*...Lee/Grumpy-kins: "I WIN!". Lesson learned...wanna press Lee's/Grumpy-kins buttons?....Call him a CHIMP! X'D,',',',','!! Sorry.... just thought mew'd share lol! *Melts back into the shadows*<3

    I actually asked him if I could have a pd I lost during a crash and he said no. I edited my post after that to what you're seeing now lol

    LMAO! Now...Now...Lee had his indisputable moments of Asshattery...but, Before he wore any mantle of authority, for a short time mew simply knew him as a player that cared. So, Mew adoringly clutches what semblance of the past she remembers of her PSO Comrades ='),'. So...."meh!" to your 'Spade-iness' dear! lol <3

    Who would do such an evil thing?

    They really ought to watch this video to stop their evil ways and pick up a wholesome attitude towards PSO.
