    Sodaboy's flippant reply to my honest post is par for the course with everything else that I've experienced with this pos game:

    1. As soon as I clicked on the installer file, I got a red-screen warning from Win10 that the installer file contains malware. Sweet. I've installed many programs on my system, and I have never previously seen this red screen.

    2. By default, Ephinea wants to install 1.1GB to my user folder. Lovely. Ever heard of Local Drive > Program Files?

    3. Of course, the installer file isn't current, so I must wait additional time for Ephinea to update beyond the 2-3 hours download.

    4. When I finally run the game, I can't even log in. I've got an account. However, Ephinea refuses to accept my UserID; I can't move my cursor into the "Password" field. Returning to the "Login" menu, when I select "Exit Game", this pos returns me to the "Input UserID" dialog box. I can only exit by right clicking on Ephinea's icon in the task bar and selecting "Close window".

    I've played *MANY* games, and only very occasionally do I encounter such arrogance combined with incompetence. It's all about attitude, Sodaboy. Yours sucks. And your attitude is reflected in the quality of your product. I will be sure to place my review of your site wherever possible.

    I finally upgraded to Windows 10 a couple days ago and the installer from Microsoft's website wasn't current. That's why it had to download and install updates during the installation process ;)

    It's rather old game which is ported from a console game. You probably didn't notice that you have to navigate the menu using the keyboard arrow keys. If you try just clicking to change the focus, that won't work. Instead left click is interpreted as a menu select.

    I agree that it's an antiquated UI, but there is an indicator of the current selection on this menu. After you type in your User ID, you would press enter and then be able to navigate the menu via the arrow keys. And you can press backspace or escape to cancel (when not entering input).

    I'm sorry to hear that you didn't have a good experience with Ephinea.

    This thread might be a little old, but it explains why Ephinea gets flagged as potential malware. You would most likely get the same warning with other PSOBB servers.

    I don't think there's anything left to discuss here, so I'm going to lock this thread. Good luck with your future gaming endeavors!

    This thread is pretty lit. Shame I missed it, damn sleep.

    Point 4 sounds like a made-up story, since it's never been reported before, ever, and it's not something we control anyway since this isn't our game, believe it or not.
