Private Patch Server

This is a guide on how to setup your private patch server for Granado Espada. This may not work for SEA server, which uses Steam to update files.

πŸ’£ WARNING! This guide is provided as is. Tamper with the game client at your own risks!

First you need to prepare the custom patch files. The following is the basic method without requiring any 3rd-party tools. Alternatively, you can use GE Tools to directly create IPF from folder (function 2), replacing Steps 1-3.

Do not include unmodified files.For example, char_texture.ipf has 3 folders—monster, npc, and pc folders. Make sure the files are located in the proper folders.If you need to know the folder structure, you can extract the original .ipf file to find out by reversing Steps 2-3. Alternatively, use IPF Extractor or GE Tools. Do not include the base folder (e.g. char_texture…
