  4. I can't change my display name but I don't use that name anymore, I'm Ezra now but like hi

  5. can you please do the following: Go to: https://whatismyipaddress.com/ Tell me both, your IPv4 and IPv6 address (in private). Then start your patcher, and answer here so i know the aprox. time stamp to look for. In case you're being blocked by our website, i could check the firewall logs.
  6. 1.) Tried this, installed "GatheringRO_2020-07-26", does not work. (anti-virus was disabled) 2.) I switched to mobile hotspot on my PC, still not working. (anti-virus was disabled) 3.) All test were done with anti-virus disabled. 4.) unfortunately this did not work either. (anti-virus was disabled after restarting) Nothing has changed on my PC with the exception of my FireFox/Chrome browser being updated to the latest version. Everything was working 100% before the server was taken down. I cannot find anything wrong with my PC. I am starting to think I habe been banned?

    Server & Time

    Server & Time

    New Server Hardware GatheringRO has been successfully merged to brand new server hardware. With that, the game server is now running on the latest generation of hardware available, which gives us a great performance boost in all directions. We made sure to get rid of bottlenecks that we've noticed on our recent server, but also improved performance overall. Since our patcher system is now running through our website instead of the old game server, this swap was seamless, without the need to re-install the game client. SQL Database Performance A server migration is always a great opportunity to get core software back up to speed with their latest version releases. But running and maintaining an SQL Database with a vast amount of data bandwith usage can be challenging. We've invested most of the migration time to improve on core SQL settings, which is the very heart of our game. Basically everything you do runs through and saves within our SQL database in one way or another. We will continue to monitor our tweaks to improve our database performance even further, as soon as we've gathered enough live data to do so. Server Security We've always given great care to the security of our game server, but there's always room to improve upon security. That's why we've increased our security standards for our game server, to keep your account and characters safe and sound. Please don't forget that it's still necessary for you to keep your username and password private and safe. Do not share them with anyone! We will never ask you for your password. We highly recommend using password managers like LastPass, to create strong passwords without the struggle to remember them. Server Time Our heroes failed to stop Time Holder, as he managed to change our server time! But we think he did a great deed! Not only our base time changed, but we also got rid of daylight saving time. Everything around Gathering Ragnarok Online is now running on the UTC standard format, instead of GMT+1 (+Daylight Saving Time). What does that mean? Coordinated Universal Time (or UTC) is the primary time standard by which the world regulates clocks and time. It represents both, UTC (+ 0) and GMT (+ 0). No daylight saving time means, that we will no longer adjust our server time during winter and summer time. It will never change ever again! Conclusion: It will be easier for players worldwide to calculate the time difference between the server and your county. If you live in an area of UTC + 4 (or GMT +4), you're simply running 4 hours ahead of our server time. More and more countries are getting rid of the daylight saving time recently, while others never used it in the first place. We're glad to support the cause by creating more simple time management in our daily life. In-Game Events: Our event triggers (WoE, BG Happy Hours, World Bosses) haven't changed yet! That means everything starts 2 hours prior than before the server migration took place. We might adjust all events by 1 or 2 hours in a future update, to compensate for the time change. Both our Website, and the World Boss timers have been adjusted accordingly to represent the new time base. WoE Rewards We've witnessed several players trying to abuse the WoE reward system by feeding kills to friends. As a result, a handful of player accounts have been temporarily banned and punished additionaly. At the same time, we've adjusted the WoE reward system, which now punishes feeding accordingly by design. We also took the time to rebalance some of the base rewards, especially for player kills to fight further against abuse. Please note that these abuse cases had nothing to do with the recent server downtime. Important Statement Details about the server downtime will not be shared, due to several reasons. However: We've implemented several counter measurements and increased our logging capabilities to silently track down people we haven't catched just yet, or who're already on our radar. ~<3 We have an absolute 0 tolerance policy to cheating and bug abusing. We don't care about your invested time as long as you don't care about us. Make sure you're aware about our In-Game rules before heading into oblivion. Just because we haven't catched you right away doesn't mean that you escaped punishment. Always report bugs, exploits and any other kind of abnormal behavior that you encounter, as stated in our rules. Don't give us a reason to sneak up on you in the first place. Second chance is considered creating a new account, not unbanning an account that has been permanently banned. Since permanent cases have been harming the server/economy and player fairness directly, we show as much mercy as they've shown us and the community. The only way to lower your punishment or be released from it entirely, is by filling a private support ticket or a bug report beforehand. Please note that we do not hand out permanent bans lightly, they're always our last resort. Punishments are based on: Type of Theft, Total account history, amount of work that has been put into fixing the mess, how much/long the abuse has been taking place and so on. Once you're on our radar, we take the time to invest your account logs several years backwards. Investing is always extremely time consuming, which means that other content will be delayed eventualy. But we take our time to prevent false punishments, and also to understand the core issue, so we can fix it up. We believe that games should be an escape from reality, so show our community that you're better than the real world out there. Support us by reporting. Thank your for your understanding, and your support.
  9. Website time never changed and is absolutely unrelated to these issues. Issues would mainly occur if your own PC time isn't in sync, however yet again, absolutely unrelated to the website's hosting location. What changed is our game server time, which is now running on UTC instead of GMT+1 + summer time. If you're seeking personal assistance, please let me know so we can create a remote session. 80% of connection issues are usualy related to anti virus applications. If you don't want my personal direct support on your PC, please do some basic tests like: 1.) Does it work with a different computer using the same internet connection. 2.) Does it work the same PC but using a different internet connection (mobile hotspot for example) 3.) Does it work with your anti virus entirely disabled 4.) Does it work after a router + switches + pc restart
  10. You can always adjust time on your side to sync with server time. As far as I know, SSL thrown error about invalidity if the date is 24 hrs behind.
  11. The server is hosted in Germany, correct? I noticed that the server time is behind by 2 hours. Would it be possible to synchronize the server time? It may be preventing the connection. Mismatched date/time are known to cause connection issues.
  12. @Madeleine Sounds like something is blocking the patcher entirely from writing files onto your pc. Let me know if i can assist you with a personal remote session.
  13. That's unfortunate. But yes, asia regions have a rather expensive bandwith costs relative to europe / america. And lots of them have still some of the worst infrastructure to date. As such, if our website uses lots of traffic, they might re-route you to a different pop/node. (according to their official statement) However you still benefit from lots of technilogical advantages which speeds up our website immensly. Please note that lots of content is still being delivered through our source host.
  14. patchlist.txt and patch_allow.txt successfully generated/downloaded for now, and I can login to gRO. Cloudflare (mostly on free plan) often routes web traffic to another countries, instead serve the contents from nearest pop/node. This often causing a website slower than before. For example, I live in Indonesia, but my traffic to gRO routed to LAX (new york), instead of CKG (Jakarta), SIN (singapore), or HKG (hongkong). EU is way faster than US for me (~190ms vs. ~320ms). we should also noted that cloudflare limiting on serving non-HTML contents on their free plan.
  15. @symbio What do you mean that's why you dislike cloudflare? Without cloudflare, all content would be delivered from europe, which would be way slower. Cloudflare has been deactivated for now, until i've found a solution for the problem. So all content should be delivered directly from the source.
  16. same problem here.. patcher said "failed to connect to patch server". patch_allow.txt was successfully fetched, but patchList.txt is missing. I try to download patchList.txt from browser, and its working fine. By the way, my current location is ID, but CloudFlare node at LAX served patch contents for me. This why I kinda dislike cloudflare (except you use pro account) fl=12f433 h=patch.gatheringro.ch ip=114.124.203.xxx ts=1596374394.936 visit_scheme=https uag=Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:79.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/79.0 colo=LAX http=http/2 loc=ID tls=TLSv1.3 sni=plaintext warp=off
  17. Please navigate to the GatheringRO installation folder. Delete the following files: patch_allow.txt patchList.txt Then, start the patcher. Please let me know which of these 2 files have been generated. Is only patchList.txt missing, or both?
  18. Hey there everyone...
    Today I call out to you with an emergency request:

    COVID-19 pretty much fucked up everything related to interviews for my Master Thesis... so I had to change a lot of things and programmed an online questionnaire.

    Please, help me fill this questionnaire ( https://survey.unibw.de/fessvalidE/ ) which would take you about 30 minutes to answer if you are able to speak English and not living in Germany.

    I need a pretty great deal of people filling this to get my Thesis done and best of it? I have only until end of this month for this task... So even spreading the word would help me quite a lot!!

  19. I am having the same issue. I have tried the following: 1. Whitelisted entire GatherinRO Folder on my anti-virus. 2. Disabled Anti-Virus. (whitelisting did not work) 3. All browsers have been completely cleared. 4. I have reinstalled GatheringRO into a new folder. (Full client installer version-22 June) Patcher still refuses to connect.
  20. Please make sure that Avast isn't blocking the patcher. It is most likely the culprit here. Either deactivate it entirely, for testing purposes, or directly add the patcher to its whitelist. What you can also try is deleting the browser cache of your Internet Explorer.

    Summer Event

    Cats are legendary animal in the Rune-Midgard. In Althea, you can easily find these twin cats hanging around at Althea Lake. They get along really well. Their names are Tchalla and Garlic Powder. They really love to go fishing. However, things get sour quickly when one gets the fish and the other doesn't. You can see them fighting over a fish in this picture. Everything is better when they share it. They finally got each fish for them and they continue their fishing while singing loudly! Some people says you can still hear them singing even until now, in-tune with the Althea theme song.
  22. failed to connect to patch server a.) attached the file b.) game has been installed prior to server down, and I was playing a day before the server down... c.) patcher color is dark... (see prtscreen) d.) I use Avast antivirus 20.4.2410 been playing for around 2 months DxDiag.txt
  23. Earlier
  24. We're currently not touching any skill balancings, as any time spent on the current balance state would be wasted time once the planned changes arrive. Right now, we're fully focused on the normalization and major class rebalance patch that's coming up next. So you have to bare the current skill state until we're ready for the release.
  25. Balance for the skil Full Blast please ppl make up to 600k with this skill and it got no delay so bigger delay or nerf its not balanced at all.............

    Summer Event

    Sanhe is mostly reclusive and just really wants to be left alone. When he goes fishing, he moves to a small abandoned fishing dock just north of the Goldring's Field. He is promptly humiliated as a Thief Fish steals his only Metal Fishing Rod. Sanhe wishes that he could fish here
  27. AB Guide update : fixed broken image links.
