New Quest Update

Hello Ephinea!

We are proud to present a new set of quests for you to enjoy, all created by @Ender. The following quests have been added:

  • New Halloween Quests: Temple, Spaceship and Jungle.
  • Episode 2 Sweep-Up Operation Series

You will find both of these series under Episode 2, under Halloween and Extermination respectively. As always, the Halloween quests will need one player to have a Halloween Cookie to play.

The boosts have been slightly adjusted as well, instead of +100% Rare Drop Rate, it is now +50% Drop Rate and +50% Rare Drop Rate, to give the drop boost more of a wider effect.

Each Halloween Quest will also now play a unique music track that only plays in that quest for some added atmosphere.

Thanks for playing on Ephinea!

Ephinea DLL updated and scheduled maintenance for October 20th, 2019.

The Ephinea DLL was updated to version v1141 today.

The unintentional buff of Gibarta and Rabarta when buffing freeze weapon specials has been reverted. Gibarta and Rabarta's freeze power will now be the same as it used to be in PSO vanilla, though freeze weapon special activation rate is still boosted.

A couple of new quest opcodes were added as well. (For quest developers)

We would also like to announce a brief server maintenance which will occur at 15:00 UTC on October 20th, 2019.

Other time zones for server maintenance:

Pacific: 08:00 on October 20th, 2019
Central: 10:00 on October 20th, 2019
Eastern: 11:00 on October 20th, 2019
Japan: 00:00 on October 21st, 2019

If you have trouble connecting to Ephinea because "client is too old", be sure to patch using the launcher, online.exe, and not psobb.exe.

Also be sure Ephinea's folder is whitelisted in your antivirus.

Thanks for playing on Ephinea!

Hello Ephinea.

Apologies for any inconvenience.
