The Final Fantasy 14 Housing Lottery Is Finally Fixed

Final Fantasy XIV’s housing lottery is finally fixed after one month of being broken.  On April 16, an FFXIV maintenance update indicated that the latest lottery cycle for housing in-game was broken, so when checking the placard where winners were to be shown, the placard said there were no winners. This meant nobody could obtain a house. Polygon reports the issue has been fixed as of yesterday, and now, winning lottery numbers will be displayed correctly, and land purchases may be finalized accordingly.  “As I mentioned in our previous update, we will be conducting maintenance to restore lottery results data on Monday, May 16,” FFXIV producer and director Naoki Yoshida writes in a new update. “This maintenance will fix identified errors and properly relay lottery results for affected plots to the appropriate servers.” As a result of this maintenance fix:  Winning lottery numbers will be displayed correctly, and land purchases may be finalized accordingly. Temporary suspensions imposed on plot purchases and relocations will be lifted.  Yoshida says that if you have a winning lottery number, you should finalize your land purchase by Thursday, May 26, as the next lottery cycle will begin that day, at which point, you will lose the ability to claim land you won during the current lottery. The next one will start on May 26 and have a typical five-day entry period and a four-day results period.  If you’re a winning participant who has already received a gil refund due to the recent lottery break, you will still be able to finalize a purchase on a won plot of land. Even if you received a refund and have since found out you won the lottery, you’ll still be treated as a winning lottery player.  “In Patch 6.2, we plan to implement an NPC by which you may voluntarily return the deposit you were accidentally refunded,” Yoshida writes. “As these housing lottery issues have been significant and caused great stress and frustration in many players, we have no intention of performing a data rollback to forcibly rescind any refunded gil. We will make an announcement regarding the voluntary return of housing deposits once the NPC in question is ready to be implemented.  “In closing, I would like to thank you all once again for your patience and understanding this past month, and extend my deepest apologies for the trouble and inconvenience these issues have caused. We will do everything in our power to safely restore your data, fix any remaining issues, and bring you all a fair and functional housing lottery system. Thank you for your continued support.”  For more FFXIV, read our exclusive interview feature with Yoshi-P, and then read Game Informer’s Final Fantasy XIV Endwalker review.

    Mondo Unveils El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie Vinyl Soundtrack!

    Mondo unveils El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie vinyl soundtrack! In partnership with Sony Masterworks, Alamo Drafthouse-owned Mondo Records has unveiled the premiere release of the vinyl soundtrack to El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie, the acclaimed sequel film and epilogue to the AMC series of the same name. The vinyl artwork can be viewed in the gallery below!! RELATED: Daft Punk’s Tron: Legacy Soundtrack Headed to Vinyl! “There is something so perfectly analog about the world Vince Gilligan created for his characters in the Breaking Bad universe – so when the opportunity to premiere the exclusive release of the soundtrack to El Camino was presented to us, it felt almost as perfect as when we first heard that Vince had created an entire feature length epilogue to the greatest television show of all time… in secret!” Mo Shafeek, Mondo Creative Director of Music, said in a statement. “Dave Porter’s score is haunting and tense, and the needle-drops are simultaneously perfect peeks into the heads of the complex characters of Vince’s expanded universe, and incredibly insightful, deep-cut slices of the American music landscape.” With a thrilling, pulse-pounding score by Dave Porter, and nearly a dozen songs from the movie, this limited edition vinyl release is essential listening for fans of Vince Gilligan’s expanded crime saga. “Oh man, how exciting. The soundtrack to my first movie gets the kid-glove treatment by Mondo, one of the world’s coolest record companies,” Breaking Bad series creator and El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie writer and director Vince Gilligan, said in a statement. “The great Matt Talbot provides the album art. And since the musical brilliance and stellar taste of Dave Porter and Thomas Golubić cannot be contained within one mere flat circle of vinyl… they’ve made it a TWO-LP SET! Here’s hoping “groovy” is due for a comeback — because I can’t think of a better word to describe this.” RELATED: Mondo Unveils The Mandalorian: Season One Vinyl Soundtrack The album features nearly every needle drop from the film, including songs by Lynyrd Skynyrd, England Dan & John Ford Coley, Jim White (Feat. Aimee Mann), Red Snapper and more, plus exclusive liner notes by composer Dave Porter and music supervisor Thomas Golubić.

    Daft Punk’s Tron: Legacy Soundtrack Headed to Vinyl!

    Daft Punk’s Tron: Legacy Soundtrack Headed to Vinyl! One of the best things about Joseph Kosinski’s Tron: Legacy (aside from the stunning visuals) was that amazing electronic score by Daft Punk — a tremendous bit of rhythmic beats and synthesizers that continues to resonate to this day. As such, Mondo is teaming up with Walt Disney Records to release the score on vinyl to commemorate the film’s 10-year anniversary. RELATED: Amazon’s The Lord of the Rings Series Resumes Production in New Zealand “When we go to visit the offices at Disney Music once a year, and every time we go the team is very, very lovely and they go, ‘So what’s your dream list?’” Mo Shafeek, Creative Director, Music at Austin-based Mondo told Collider. “Tron was always on that list, particularly for my partner Spencer. He’s a huge Daft Punk fan and a huge fan of that score. We would always throw things out. Like for me it was Who Framed Roger Rabbit. And we got to do that. Once we did that it was like, ‘Tron Legacy please!’” The timing was actually just right for the project to work. “We asked at the right time. We started this back in January. We were just asking about it for years and this time it came together organically. And now we get to be in on the anniversary.” For this new edition, Shafeek went “back to the source,” which means Tron: Legacy “is a direct repressing of what was released on the original vinyl album, which did feature a full collection of bonus tracks.” The Mondo edition of Tron: Legacy comes with artwork by British illustrator Matt Taylor. RELATED: Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness Teaser Released for Netflix’s Original Horror… “The back cover has this spot-varnish where the dust has been wiped away, and the keyboard is glowing and it has the track-list, like the weird retro-future tech,” Shafeek said. “It had this whole story from the packaging perspective, where it’s a computer screen and you open it up and it’s this whole entire universe.” For more details on the soundtrack, visit the official Mondo site. Tron: Legacy Vinyl Edition Motion Picture Soundtrack will go on sale Wednesday at Noon CT/10 a.m. PT.
