Lyndon Box - Jane
WAYI has added Jane Card and Sierra's Summer Costume Set to Lyndon Box this month.

Imperial Wheel S (Japan) has been updated for 8/22-27, 2014. This coincides with their Armonia Episode 2 Update.

All skin packs on this blog have been updated to v22.19.56. The default skin used in Japanese client for Armonia Episode 2 is also the same, so this skin version should be good for use up to Episode 2.

If you are using the skin packs from this blog, please download the latest packs to replace the older ones, otherwise you will have missing icons/bars/buttons/etc.

  • Modified button.bmp for the new enhancement window.
  • Added reinforceback.bmp and reinforcepopup.bmp.
  • Filled out all missing files for partial skins. All skin packs now contain the full range of files.
I have also modified character base panel for Classic Polish skin to make it look more like Closed Beta Test (CBT) game client.

Download the updated skin packs from UI SKINS PAGE.

American server has been updated to v22.19.56.

  • Fixed Time Paradox missions. Roulette chest appears at boss' spawn spot after boss dies.
  • Rumin Ores always yield Great Rumin when refining with reputation points.
  • Gold Coins Rush Event - Hm. I think I'll pass! LOL
See Patch Notes - August 19, 2014 for more details. See Patch Highlights v22.19.56 ~ v22.38.05  for upcoming patch notes.

The premium characters released since the last update are...

UI Skins - Pending Update
This update has also modified the UI window for weapon/armor enhancement. All skin packs are currently outdated. I will update all skin packs on this blog soon. The file that needs updating is button.bmp. There are also 2 new files - reinforceback.bmp and reinforcepopup.bmp. As I mentioned before, missing files are not a problem since the game client will auto-load the default files for any missing skin files. However, there are some players who still do not understand how to deal with partial skins, so I will probably be including all skin files in the upcoming skin packs.

Japan servers have been updated to Armonia Episode 2 on Aug 20, 2014. Added new characters and voices for Laura and Blue Flame Ludin. The updated character voice file (se.ipf) has been uploaded by Lone★Wanderer . You can download it from MediaFire .

Also added Abyss Weapons (ATK Rating 37) and Pet Box (Moon Knight) to Knight of Chaos mission. This should be available only for Japan servers.

Imperial Wheel S (Japan) has been updated for August 14-20, 2014.

Since Black'light Shield was released in American servers (v21.77.84), I bought a few and decided to test them against my older shields...

The following was provided by DelKreuz at Optimize files for speed and size :

Granado Espada has a very poor update system. When an update is done, it merges the new ipf files with the old ones, and keeps the old data.

Those old data can be safely removed. Doing so has two advantages :
1 - You earn some disk space.
2 - It can improve your game loading performances.

Here is a small script that will optimize your ipf files, it is very effective for old installations. I had an installation that was made during GE v5.0, and using this script I earned about 1GB, and I saved over 450MB on a fresh install of Granado Esapda Europe!

The file : optimize ge.zip

Everything you need is explained in the readme.txt file, but if you need help feel free to ask by commenting this article!

Note that the process takes quite a bit of time, so you better not launch it if you want to play right away. Windows8 users might have to disable Windows Smartscreen ( Control panel -> action center -> Windows smartscreen)

For those who have problems with reading a readme... This how you should put the files to make it work.

And DO NOT FORGET to use clean-backup.bat to delete the backup files, or you will have doubled the size of your GE instead of reducing it.
