Regular maintenance complete for 5/4/2016

The regular system maintenance has been completed for this week. Also, since it is the first maintenance of the month, the Hunter's Boost Road has been changed. The new road features Endless Nightmare #4, Phantasmal World #3, and New Mop-Up Operation #3. All Hunters Boost Road points have been reset.

Also, the Rare drop sound will now be heard on Hardcore when Scape Doll drops.

Maintenance complete for 4/29/2016

Changes from the maintenance:

- Fodra and the Ephinea website have been relocated to a new host. (If someone you know can't connect to the website or game anymore, have them either reboot their computer or drop to a command prompt and type "ipconfig /flushdns" to purge their DNS cache.)
- Time attack reward shop working correctly again.
- Music disks drop less frequently. (From 1/600 -> 1/1000)
- A sound is no longer played when music disks drop.

Some other changes in the code for some new features, but they're not activated in the client yet... stay tuned...

Special maintenance this week 4/29/2016

Maintenance will actually occur this week on 4/29/2016 at 14:00 UTC (07:00 PT and 10:00 ET).

The server, game and website, will be down a bit longer than usual as I do some moving around of some things. I estimate the maintenance to take the full hour, maybe a little less.

Apologies for the inconvenience this may cause you!

Client update 1.6.5

Some minor changes were made to the client today:

- Doubled the size of red boxes on HUD. (Working on getting the sound to play when music is disabled.)
- There is now hit respite (frames of invulnerability when hit) for One Person Mode in Ultimate mode.
- Main teleporter door in Episode 4's single player mode is now open. (Thanks, Tofuman!)

Also, the server will now properly calculate a section ID for kana names when creating a character. (Thanks for the help, Soly!)

Easter Event Top 20 Reward

Apologies for being late on this one.

We'll be giving out the prize for the Event Egg leaderboards. Due to some issues with the Easter Event competition, the eligible winners are the Top 20 players instead of the Top 10.

The prize is 1x Photon Sphere.

Due to some slight issues it'll have to be done manually (just this once, in the future this will be done automatically), so if you are on the leaderboards, please PM me (Matt) on the forums or poke me ingame.
