Tekken 7 Update 1.04 Live, Fixes Black Color Customizations

(For example, one Dragunov costume could be turned completely pitch black, like a shadow). This was unintended by the developers...  but update 1.03 also effected normal black hair / clothing customizations, turning them gray. After a negative response from fans, Bandai Namco listened and has restored black / darker customizations for hair and other items!
