Halloween theme activated.

The Halloween theme has been activated across all ships and the Pioneer Halloween quest added to Episode 2's Event category. This is not the main Halloween event, that will come soon, but for now... feel free to murder Hallo Rappies to your heart's content!

Maintenance complete for October 7th

The maintenance at October 7th at 15:00 UTC has been complete.

- There was a new DLL pushed which now supports adjusting experience in real time with fractional rates outside of C-mode. Experience gained by monsters will also be displayed properly when a fractional experience rate is used outside of C-mode as well. (Previously, PSOBB only supported fractional experience rates in C-mode.)

- Meet the user no longer automatically joins the game of your friend. There was a glitch with this which caused "ghost players" in games and PSO normally didn't operate this way anyway. We can see about adding automatic game joining later after squashing the bug.

As always if you are unable to update the game correctly or connect to the server, check your antivirus settings and be sure to allow the game's folder and/or the executables/DLL files to be whitelisted.

Thank you for playing on Ephinea!

October Update

Just a minor update, here is what has occurred:

- The Hunters Boost Road for October is Maximum Attack 4 Episode 2.
- The Weekly Kills Leaderboard issues have been fixed and should return soon.
- The weekly boosts will rotate properly at 00:00 UTC instead of 00:00 PDT.
- Hardcore players will no longer be able to create or join Classic drop rooms. This is due to an exploit regarding Scape Doll drops.

The timers for Maximum Attack 4 Episode 2 have been removed for the duration of the HBR on both Fodra and Lumireis, if you still want to play with the timer you can play on Auldrant.

We hope you enjoy playing on Ephinea!

Server Restart at 17:00 UTC 01/10/2017

Been meaning to do this for a week but never really found a good opening, so going to give you some fair warning that we'll be restarting the servers for a small update.

Should only take 5-10 minutes.

The following will occur:

  • Hunters Boost Road will be changed to the Maximum Attack 4 Episode 2 series.
  • Fix for the broken weekly kills leaderboard.
  • Fix the rotating boost system to reset at 00:00 UTC instead of 00:00 PDT on Sundays.

Should be everything unless the other admins want to add some things.

DLL Update 1.9.0

Updated the game DLL today. The only change is probably better performance on lower end systems.

If your Windows Defender throws a fit, you can follow these steps for Windows 10:

1. Click Start
2. Start typing "Windows Defender" and select "Windows Defender Security Center".
3. Click the little shield icon on the left.
4. Click "Virus & threat protection settings".
5. Scroll down and select "Add or remove exclusions".
6. Click "Add an exclusion".
7. Select "Folder".
8. Select your EphineaPSO folder.
9. ???
10. Profit!
