Maintenance Complete for December 4th, 2021. (メンテナンス完了のお知らせ 21/12/4)

Hello hunters!

There was a maintenance to implement the new weapon skins mentioned in the previous news post. Make sure you update your unitxt or else your item names will be shifted and look totally wrong!

In addition to the new weapon skins and their combination items, we also renamed the Rage de Feu weapons to have a unique name per special. The unreleased item, Black Gauntlets, was given an appropriate name and description in the English unitxt. Technique disks had their descriptions cut down a little to not overlap the "Cannot Use" hud element.

There was a new DLL provided in today's maintenance too. This DLL allows the Excalibur* and Red Saber* skins to receive the Proof of Sword-Saint benefits like their base weapons do.

How do I update my unitxt?
If you are using "EN" or "JP" in the upper-right corner of the Launcher, then your unitxt will automatically update for you.

If you are using "CUSTOM" in the upper-right corner of the launcher, you will need to manually update your unitxt. If you are unable to do so, it's recommended to use either the EN/JP unitxt from the launcher until you are able to update on your own.

You can download a copy of the compressed and uncompressed unitxt files to aid updating your custom unitxt. While all unitxt files are provided, only the unitxt_j file was updated today. The unitxt_ws and unitxt_shop files were last updated for Anniversary event.

Note that the Christmas event will likely start next weekend. The Hunter's Boost Road will also change at that time.

Upcoming unitxt changes this weekend (今週末予定の unitxt更新について)

Hello Hunters!

Around this weekend, there will be a maintenance to add some new weapon skins on the server. The new skins are:
  • Heart of Suppressed Gun - Creates Heaven Striker* and Heaven Punisher*
  • Heart of Tension Blaster - Creates Heaven Striker* and Heaven Punisher*
  • Heart of Samba Maracas - Creates M&A60 Vise* and Mille Marteaux*
  • Heart of Lollipop - Creates Excalibur*, Tsumikiri J-Sword*, and Summit Moon*
  • Heart of DB's Saber - Creates Excalibur* and Red Saber*
  • Heart of Plantain Huge Fan - Creates Yunchang* and Asteron Belt*
  • Heart of Diska of Liberator - Creates Slicer of Fanatic* and Rainbow Baton*
  • Heart of Izmaela - Creates Slicer of Fanatic* and Rainbow Baton*
  • Heart of The Sigh of a God - Creates Magical Piece* and Prophets of Motav*

    This update also fixes a rare issue where the Rabbit Wand skin for Glide Divine would display a glitched photon trail.
    Like the other Tsumikiri J-Sword skins, the Lollipop skin does not have the large blue bubble particle.
    Excalibur* skins work with POSS with a new DLL coming during the maintenance.
    All weapon skins maintain the base weapon's sound effect.

    Additionally, we renamed the Rage de Feu weapons to have a unique name per special.

    What do I need to do?
    If your launcher is set to "EN" or "JP" in the upper-right corner, then you should be all set the first time you run the launcher after the update.

    If your launcher is set to "CUSTOM" in the upper-right corner, then you will need to update your unitxt after the update.

    Thank you for playing on Ephinea!

  • Maintenance complete for November 16th, 2021 (メンテナンス完了のお知らせ 21/11/16)

    With this maintenance, the client has been updated with the following changes:

    - No music on telepipe with fast burst fix. (Credit: @Ender )
    - Mouse cursor position no longer moves when pressing F12/Home when mouse controls are OFF. (Credit: @Ender )
    - /showwep now affects untekked items everywhere. You will see the tekked item name without having to tek it in the shop. In the case of Type weapons with specials, you will see its special in the name as well. (Credit: @Ender )
    - New command /hud which will toggle PSO's HUD for screenshot taking. I recommend binding this command to a shortcut so it's easy to toggle off and on, because you won't be able to see what you're typing trying to toggle it off once it's on. You can also ALT+Backspace, which will quit the game and restore the HUD as well, should you not be able to type /hud again yourself for some reason. (Credit: @Soly )

    Thank you for playing on Ephinea!

    Update: Woops, had a small bug with the mini map on 1310, updated to 1311 now to fix. Haha. ;-)

    - fast burst時にテレパイプを使用するとBGMが消えてしまう不具合を修正しました。 (Credit: @Ender )

    - マウス移動OFFの状態でメニューを開くと、マウスカーソルが移動する問題を修正しました。 (Credit: @Ender )

    - 「/showwep」コマンドの内容が変更されました。未鑑定武器が「スペシャルウェポン」ではなく鑑定名で表示されます。また、TypeMなどの一部の武器において、エレメントが武器名として表示されるようになりました。(Credit: @Ender)

    - 「/hud」コマンドを実装しました。HUDの表示/非表示を切り替えられますので、スクリーンショット撮影に便利です。 ただし、一度オンにするとチャット欄が見えなくなるため、簡単にオフ/オンできるように、このコマンドをショートカットに設定しておくことをお勧めします。 また、Alt+Backspaceでゲームを終了すればHUDを元に戻せますので、何らかの理由で「/hud」が入力できなくなった場合には、それで対応してください。 (Credit: @Soly )
