Best Blowout Support Event 2017 until July 04 (Europe) or Aug 23 (USA).  

Even after telling T3Fun exactly what to do to fix this lost feature, they still fail to make this simple fix after the recent maintenance... Whatever. You can get the file here instead. This file is first made available by Laguna, and is meant for the game clients of American servers.

This is NOT an official patch. Do NOT post in the official GE forum or website.



HOW TO USE
  1. Close the game client, if it is still running.
  2. Download ge_skillrangeoption.zip file - [FileSplat] or [MediaFire].
  3. Extract the .zip file into Granado Espada\ge folder. Back up original first, if desired.
  4. Start the game client.
  5. Enable Show Skill Range in Game Options (Alt+O) window in-game.

If you want to do it yourself instead of downloading the file, simply create a new file called options.xml with the following content:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="EUC-KR"?>
<Options>
<Option name="badwordfilter" default="1"/>
<Option name="EnableSkillRangeView" default="1"/>
</Options>

Merge this file into xml.ipf inside Granado Espada\ge folder... and that's it. I don't understand what's so hard that they can't fix this after so long.

Some events for the launch...
And apparently, they removed Cresemento Weapons from the game. This reminds me of the old GE Europe which removed Jack from the game to prevent botting... Somethings are in the game for a reason. When the publisher randomly removes them, it will likely cause problems later on, either with respect to game balance or quest requirements... The statement eurogamez gave here:

It's true that Cres saves people's time much but....losing too much things... As you Fans realized, this is fresh new server and we don't have anything to catch up so fastly and no hurry.

We are sure that this changed situation will give you fans much better fun of changing gears, upgrading gears, better-to-using skills and stances, beautiful costumes, etc many fun factors of this game.

I saw a guy who using Cres with no skill attacks, no skill point ups, no stance upgrade...no knowledge....till Expert ...-_-;; He lost much of fun and just leveled up but high level people don't want him because he don't know much about this game and skills even though he touched master.

This change means just a little bit more time to level up but it's still good as you all know. What about we trade this with much better fun situation instead?

We are sure this will increase many things of GEEU even the game's life too ^^; And very little bit of sales too....^^ We will admit but we don't think people will spend much money at phase of low levels^^;; The more important thing is fun circumstance of game will give things us more. To gamers and to company.

Thank you for your supporting our trying for GE and we are more and more cheered up by you. We will keep persuading people and keep trying to improve GEEU!

Thanks
YOUR GEEU TEAM

***No worry we will add Cres when GEEU grown up enoughly later ^^ Promise!

So taking a long time to grind and level to Expert/Master is "fun"? I remember a time before pioneer equipment were introduced, when you have to use the armors/weapons dropped by monsters. It took a long time grinding just to get to Veteran... That was "fun"? Really...

Anyway, a certain player sent me a mail in-game regarding the new GE Europe:


I'm not sure if IMC is indeed the parent company as said above, but it seems EuroGamez has some connections to Korean companies. Maybe it's a trap to lure dissatisfied players to start over (and spend more money) in a new server.  My recommendation is for players not to expect too much. Cash milking via Lyndon Box and web games are a standard from IMC, so you probably can't avoid them no matter which server you play on...

EuroGamez GmbH is a branch company of EuroGamez Co., Ltd, headquartered in Korea. This company located in Eschborn, Germany, founded in 2013 and specialized in MMORPG games. EuroGamez GmbH is focusing on the publication of highly qualified massively multiplayer online games (MMOGs), developed in Korea for European markets. EuroGamez GmbH’s games will be followed and available more in European market every year. [Source]

A new blog page has been added for user interface (UI) skins. The old classic skins have also been updated for v20.10.24 (current version for Singapore servers). These include:

  • Classic Rough (aka SK1) was the default skin design used in v2.0 game client. 
  • Classic Polish (aka SK2) was basically a polished up, glossy version of Classic Rough (SK1) skin. 
  • Classic Empire (aka SK3) was the default skin design used in v3.0 update, which added Errac, the third civilization. 
  • Classic Black (aka SK Black) was an old custom skin that was around since v2.x.
  • Renaissance is the current default skin design used since v5.0 Renaissance update. This pack is for using as a base to design your own skin, and for filling up any missing files of partial skins (if needed).
In addition, Catrina skin and Black 2.1 skin are also updated for v20.10.24, which mostly involves a new icon in button.bmp file. I will update and post more skins later, including Ink, Rose, Dark Reaper, etc.
