Japanese Sound Effects Updater - Command Line

This package contains the sound effect files from Japan's Granado Espada game client. It includes a command line updater, so you can get the sounds for newer characters. This is an alternative to the partial client updater, which may encounter download issues regarding broken zip files.

To set up, do the following.
  1. Download JapanGESECmd_101176.7z from MEGA πŸ”— (Tools folder).
  2. Extract the above file using 7-Zip πŸ”—, PeaZip πŸ”—, BandiZip πŸ”—, or WinRAR πŸ”—.
    • This package can be extracted to share the same folder as GE Tools, as they share some basic files. When prompted to overwrite files during extraction, you may skip or overwrite them, since the files with the same name are actually the same.
  3. Double-click on jgese.bat to start.
    • The file should now elevate itself to administrator privilege, even if you do not run it as an administrator. If not, right-click on the file and select Run As Administrator.

Make sure that your command line has Internet access. You can test it by running ping (or any random website) in command prompt. (See How to Ping an IP Address πŸ”— for details.) Check your firewall settings, if it is blocked. Try again later, as the server may be having maintenance (usually on Wednesday). Version 101176 now comes with integrated ping check for the patch server.

The batch file will download and extract new patches (if any) and compile the sound files into se.ipf file. If it is located inside a subfolder of the game client folder, it optionally offers to backup and replace that client's original se.ipf file with the Japanese se.ipf.  To restore backup, simply copy ge\backup\se-jgese-[patchnumber].ipf to replace ge\se.ipf.

If download of patch list fails, check your firewall for Internet access and that the Japanese game client has not change its patch server. Open updater.config.xml file in Notepad and check line 4. It should read:
<url key="Revisions" value="">
If the URL differs from the one above, open patchurl.txt in Notepad and change it to the URL in updater.config.xml. Version 101176 now acquires the URL directly from updater.config.xml, so there is no need for you to counter-check.

Do NOT move or rename any file/folder. If you encounter a problem, please provide the following information:
  • Operating system (32 or 64 bit)
  • Service region (e.g. USA) of the game client
  • Drive/path of the game client
  • Drive/path of the extracted tools folder

If you are upgrading from an older version, it is recommended to delete the old folder first to avoid redundant old files.
  • v101176 [09/20/2017] Fixed failure to change drive after admin check if extracted to a non-system drive. Directly extract patch URL from updater.config.xml. Backup and replacement of se.ipf now works only if jgese.bat is located in a subfolder of the game client. Added admin self-elevation, file integrity check, ping check. SFX includes Kael/White Wolf, Lady/Leader Rachel.
  • v101146 [08/11/2017] Initial release. SFX includes Scavenger Yeganeh, Nena's Violeta Fero.
