ST: HDR patch

Looks like Capcom finally released a patch for HD Remix. Let's go over the good, the bad, and the ugly.

The good:
* Music seems fixed
* Lifebar glitch fixed
* I haven't had a disconnect yet (other than ragequits)
* Rankings are fixed, and matchmaking seems correlated to rankings. Within my first 7 games I was playing against strong players that were giving me a challenge. It was exciting and fun. That's good!

The bad:
* Players can see your win/loss record in the lobby now and just quit if they don't like it. That's idiotic. It shouldn't display at all
* Rankings are STILL by player, instead of by player/character combination. That's retarded. My Cammy is terrible. So is my Dhalsim. What does my Dhalsim score have anything to do with the score of characters I do play competitively? Rank player/character combinations.

The ugly:
* Akuma is still there. Just delete him from the select screen. He's completely broken and I'm willing to stand by that statement. He should be banned from tournaments.
