Localize Mod: Change Appearances

Read Modifying Localize File first. The following are some examples on changing appearances. There are a few columns in the data table to understand:
FileName = the file to load for the specific item/character/etc.MaterialSet = the XML file that modifies the file listed in FileName, usually for creating a variant of the original.ParticleName = the default glow for weapons, weapon costumes, and buffs.ParticleCount = the amount of glow for the weapons, weapon costumes, and buffs.EmitterName = alternate glow group for weapons, weapon costumes, etc. Generally, to replace one thing with another, you need to find the ClassNames of both things, then find the respective values (including "None") for the desired columns. Note that an event item is considered a separate item from its normal version, so you may want to change both the event item and the normal item. See Jupath Database ๐Ÿ”— for a list of weapons and costumes.

Body & Head Costumes
These are found in datatable_item_const…

Localize Mod: Change Sounds

Read Modifying Localize File first. This post is about localizing music and drop sound effects.

This is found in datatable_map.ies file. You can also change the play list of specific maps. For example, I usually play with no music except for the login screen music. This way, hearing music will tell me that the client has disconnected and has returned to the login screen. To have no music except login screen music, use GE Tools to extract bgm.ipf file, then delete all extracted files except for kimjs_granado_espada.wma, then compile IPF from the extracted folder.

However, Bounty Hunter's Guild map uses the login screen music... To remove that, the play list must be changed from Reception_Hall to something else (e.g. Auch).

SetPropertyString("Map", "guild_bounty", "BgmPlayList", "Auch");

This is found in datatable_item_etc.ies and other datatable_item_*.ies files. You can change the drop sounds of various items. This e…

Summer Snow Festival

Europe server is importing Summer Snow Festival from Korean server. Talk to Event NPC and hunt a random monster race in field maps for 30 event quest items. The daily event quest rewards 2 event tickets. The event shop features summer costumes (10-12 tickets) and hats (5-7 tickets), including the newer ones for Judith, Blue Flame Ludin, Ramiro, Viki, Bane, Sirius, JD, Leona, Lynn, Nena, etc.

Localize Mod: Change Texts

Read Modifying Localize File first. You can also change text by editing dictionary_local.xml file (extracted from dictionary.ipf), but sometimes multiple entities (items/monsters/characters/etc.) use the same dictionary line. Modifying them within the localize file allows text change to a specific entity.

You can rename monsters to differentiate them from other monsters, such as the clones of bosses in Armonia Gloria and Viego. These are found in datatable_monster*.ies files. You can do this with Resize Stuffs to make the difference more significant.
