Patch Notes v28.72.30 - v28.87.01

Image
The following post summarizes changes based on patch notes for Korean live servers. American server is currently at v27.40.06, while European server is at v28.50.39. See Patch Notes page for other versions.



IAHGames GE File Archive

Image
The old website for SEA GE (IAHGames) can still be accessed with Wayback Machine ๐Ÿ”—. This allows one to find the download links for the old game client, specifically from Google Drive ๐Ÿ”—.

Region: South East Asia (Singapore)Version: 25.08.73 (New Era Episode 2)Publisher: IAHGamesLanguages: English (all text; sound for up to Bahama), Korean (sound for Armonia + New Era)
Since the installer files may be deleted from Google Drive at any time, I have created an archive of selected files from that game client. You can download IAHGEArchive_v250873.7z (467MB) from MEGA ๐Ÿ”— (Misc folder).
updater.skin.swfai.ipfdictionary.ipffont.ipfies.ipfse.ipfshared.ipfui.ipfxtrap folder All the above .ipf files have been extracted. Other .ipf files are unlikely to differ from game clients of other regions, thus they have not been included.

If for some reason you want to reuse these old files (e.g. character voice files), do the following:
Extract the same .ipf file of the current version with GE Tools.Copy t…

SEA UI Modification & Font

Image
The new SEA server was launched on Steam. The packaging of IPF files is slightly different in that previously one massive file (e.g. bgm.ipf) is separated into smaller pieces (e.g. bgm00001.ipf, bgm00002.ipf, etc.). This customization involves some basic UI changes.

๐Ÿ’ฃ WARNING! Tamper with the game client at your own risks! If error occurs, you may have to completely reinstall the game client. Client modifications (however harmless) are generally frowned upon, so do not post this in the official forums.




PATCHER UI
The current game patcher seems to be warped in dimensions. The image is 606x505 pixels, but Steam actually forces it to become 755x675 pixels. I have resized the image so that it fits Steam's requirement. Simply download the image above, and replace background.jpg in C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Granado Espada For SEA\release\res folder with it.

This is a privately customized file meant for use by SEA game client (v28.36.84) only. It includes 5 modi…

SEA Server Grand Opening

Image
SEA server (v28.36.84) has officially opened on Steam after maintenance (10:00-16:00 GMT+8). It is available only via Steam ๐Ÿ”—, using Steam login instead of the standard client login.


The opening event comes in 3 parts:
Pioneer Journal (30 days): Login to claim a daily item, e.g. Barrack Slot x20 in all, Master Card x1, Weapon Costume x1, Constellation Weapon x3.Event NPC Daily Quest: Soul Crystals, Barrack Slots; Pet Box (Phobitan), Master Card x3, Lhote Card, Rascel Card, Character Card Box III, etc.Family Level (up to 60): Barrack Slots, Evil Weapons, Pet Box (Black Tiger), Character Card Box III, etc. ... Hm. Frankly, still not too impressed with what they are offering, considering what old players have lost with the wiped accounts. ๐Ÿ˜‘


[Event] The GM's Request (1)
Reward: (a) Mystic Ampule (Event) x10, Rose Wing (7 days) Gift Box x1; (b) Principal Potion (Event) x3; (c) Beginner Complete Manual (Monster ATK +10%, Monster Damage Received -5%, EXP +20%) x1, Beginner Complete Acc…

Attendance Login Event

Image
USA server is having a daily login event (via website ๐Ÿ”—) for 30 days (10/27-11/25). Note that the website requires Flash, so you may not be able to login with Firefox. Use Chrome instead. See Resolving Login Problem in T3Fun Website ๐Ÿ”— for details.


There are also family level requirements for some rewards:
Family Level 10: Constellation Weapons, Elite Le NoirFamily Level 20: Evil Weapons, Greek CromaFamily Level 30: Strata Devil Weapons & Armors


I'm guessing this event is supposed to be the equivalent of Walk Flowery Paths event for Europe/Korea, since more often than not, T3Fun does not want to patch. I wonder if we will still be getting the standard Halloween Event this year?

Overall, it's a good event. Be glad for it, and not complain about prices dropping. Say NO to inflation. ๐Ÿ™Œ


Laila's Legacy
Craft the following weapons during 10/31-11/06 and get Strata Devil Earrings (Event). The NPC who sells/trades the recipe and the required items are listed below.

Halloween 2017

Image
Korean server has started the annual Halloween event for 2 weeks. This will most likely be exported to other regional servers next week as well.

Talk to Event NPC in Reboldoeux to do a daily quest to collect Lost Halloween Pumpkin (quest item) x10, which are dropped on the floor after killing monsters of a randomly determined race (e.g. undead). Similar to Leona's Red Seeds, once you have 10 quest items in your inventory, they will stop dropping. Each completed quest gives Halloween Ticket x5 and Halloween Candy (EXP +30% for 30 minutes) x20.


The event shop trades the following event items for Halloween Tickets:
Vampire Costumes for Leona, Calyce, Grandies, Valeria Vendetta - 25 tickets Abyss Weapon Costume (ATK vs. Monster +10% for 30 days) - 20 ticketsVampire Hairs for Leona, Code Name L, Valeria Vendetta - 15 ticketsPremium Custom Wing Ticket - 15 ticketsHalloween Pumpkin Hat - 10 ticketsEnhanced Tribe Ampule - 3 ticketsPet Food, Expert G EXP Card, Training Card G - 2 tickets…

Walk Flowery Paths Event

Image
Europe server has imported Walk Flowery Paths ๐Ÿ”— event until Dec 05, 2017. There are 5 groups of rewards:


Attendance + Scenario: AR34/35/36 Weapon, Strata Devil Armor, etc.Attendance + Family Level: Strata Devil Weapon, Enhanced Accessory, Bristia Accessory, etc.Attendance + Rank Mission: Dazzling Obsidian/Spodumene, etc.Attendance + Play Time: Character Card Box III, etc.Attendance: Soul Crystals, Training Cards, Ring Boxes, Steroid Potions, etc.

SEA Launch Road Map

Image
More news about the relaunch for Granado Espada SEA... The publisher hasn't been communicative with the potential players since the website was setup. They didn't respond to players' inquiries about old accounts or even the date of release since the start of October. They didn't even tell you what are in the founder's packs or what version the server will start with...



Well, they finally did so. They are starting with The Symphonia Episode 3, updating to Episode 4 in late November, and Episode 5 in late December. That's fairly fast, but so was T3Fun when USA server first started... As expected, no transfer from the old server. The founder's packs basically contain cash items and bulk of Enchantment Chips. See Future Schedules and Founder's Pack Products ๐Ÿ”— for details.


According to Service Opening Notice ๐Ÿ”—:
We are happy to announce that we are currently preparing to release Granado Espada for SEA on the Steam platform. We will be servicing the game in…

Granado Espada SEA Relaunch

Image
So apparently, IMC is relaunching the game for Southeast Asia in October 2017. (Thanks to CastillianGE for the chat box notice.) From their Face Book ๐Ÿ”— post:
We at imcGAMES, the developers of Granado Espada, are now preparing to launch ‘Granado Espada for SEA’ through the Steam game platform, with service focused on English-speaking audiences in Southeast Asia.

We will be sharing more details about the release of GE for SEA very very soon, so stay tuned! You can check out news and other information about the game at the website below.
Too late... Most people who still wanted to play the game have already moved to European server. If they have announced earlier prior to the closure of sGE (April 2017), it might have been worthwhile.

The chance for transfer of old accounts is astronomical, since IAH had given their players almost-free access to cash shop before closure. You can't expect accounts holding such items to be transferred. But this is probably their business strategy... …

Resize Inventory Windows

Image
This custom patch will change the width for inventory window and premium item window. The narrow version uses 259 pixels (default for USA), while the wide version uses 359 pixels (default for Europe).

๐Ÿ’ฃ WARNING! This works only for USA and Europe (DEU) game clients. If you use them for another region, the text references in the inventory windows may be broken. This has been verified to work for clients up to v28.00.72. Do NOT use this if later versions make official changes (e.g. add another button) to either window.

Granado Espada Tools

Image
GE Tools is a batch file that consolidates the uses of pre-existing command-line files, allowing extraction of IPF, creation of IPF from folder, optimization of IPF, addition of folder to IPF, conversion of IES to XML/PRN, etc.

๐Ÿ’ฃ WARNING! GE Tools is provided as is. Tamper with the game client at your own risks! If backup restoration fails, you may have to completely reinstall the game client. Client modifications (however harmless) are generally frowned upon, so do not post this in the official forums. Note that many things are server-sided, so changing them in the client may not actually do anything.

The unique rewards are Rosa Card, Blue Flame Ludin Card, Loretta Card, and Elizabeth Card, each for 3,000 points. If you stay in-game for 24 hours, you get 144 points per day. So each card requires 21 full days.

Photobucket Fails

Image
Photobucket has suddenly disabled all direct image links, unless you pay an annual ransom of $399. This basically breaks many images on this blog, as they are hosted there. The reason I used Photobucket was because they allowed direct image links with static URL and fixed file names. Other image hosts, such as Imgur, either do not have static URL or randomly rename your files after upload.

Now, Photobucket has removed the only reason to use their ad-laden service. ๐Ÿ˜’ I have removed the previous blog template and used a built-in Blogger template for now. But many of the old posts probably have images that are broken. There are simply too many posts to fix. Meh.


Also replaced the default Blogger comment system to Disqus. Hopefully, I did it correctly. Let me know if there's any issue.

Yeganeh's Repentence Event

Image
European server is importing another Korean event to coincide with the release of Scavenger Yeganeh.The event NPC is in Cite de Reboldoeux.
Select an accessory merchant - Magic, Bristia, Evil, Enhanced, or Strata Devil. Once selected, it cannot be changed. Defeat a random NPC using a quest version of Scavenger Yeganeh (MCC1).Give the required items to the accessory merchant - Silver Bar x3 + Enchant Chip Veteran x5 (Magic/Bristia/Evil) or Platinum Bar x1 + Enchant Chip Expert x5 (Enhanced/Strata). Repeat once per day until you have the required number of completions - Magic (4), Bristia/Evil (8), or Enhanced/Strata (10). You may then choose an Event accessory of the specific type.


It looks like a decent event, too bad my Lv.6 family is too poor to even pay for Silver Bars + Enchant Chips daily. ๐Ÿ˜„

Patch Notes v27.98.28 - v28.10.94

The following post summarizes changes based on patch notes for Korean live servers. American server is currently at v26.60.82. European server is at v27.31.33 and will be updating to v27.96.08 by May 16, 2017. I won't be posting the Korean patch notes for v26.32.48 to v27.96.08, since these versions already exist (or will soon exist) in English. See Patch Notes page for other versions.

That means November/December for Baron's Pledge update... and April/May 2018 for The Symphonia Episode 3... Ugh.

Also, since Blue Moon has stopped updating, I'…
