What works

Installer: 100% Functionality


Launcher: 100% Functionality


Updater: 100% Functionality


Game 100% Functionality




Game was tested on below listed setup for the following:


1.a Speed on Lower Detail, Low, Average and High graphical settings


2.a Stability through loading all game interfaces e.g Options Menu, Inventory, All buttons, Chat, Private Messaging (Whisper), In-Game Windows Live Messenger.


3.a FPS


4.a Graphical Glitching/Blocking


5.a Internet Responsiveness/Speed




1.b The tests results conclude on this particular setup, "Texture Quality" need be set to Average (For best results, 100% Functionality) "Model Detail" can be set to high as well as the option directly below it. In order to get these settings to run adequately I had to disable "Shadows"


2.b All game interfaces loaded promptly and correctly rendered, in a one and one half hour duration of play none of these gave any trouble.


3.b Frames Per Second was Average to High with the settings mentioned above


4.b There was slight graphical spiking (pretty colors) when using a spam heal on a nuker.


5.b The game responded well to "City to City" and "City to Hunting Zones" teleport, all mobs appeared promptly according to the current "Distance/View" settings.




Testing the "GPU Animation" function under "Options" yielded a smoothing in Graphical performance yet turned the Toon black, all accept the swords which floated outside his hand and his head (in correct location)

HowTo / Notes


Anti-cheat still doesn't work for the game. No need to make reports about a non-working game when entering a server with protection!

You may get lucky and sometimes the game works with GameGuard, but as a rule it won't work.

Wine friendly servers - C4 (Scions of Destiny) - Interlude - Interlude - Freya, Fafurion - Classic - last KOR chronicle

With GameGuard protection. They work, but there may be crashes from the game. - Interlude - Custom gameplay (client Salvation) - GvE (client Classic)
