- Updated the items database with the new 4.0 client data (US names).
- Removed links to AP table (no longer accurate) and siege times.
You can also download the new data.pak for EU PTS here: http://rainy.ws/misc-stuff/ (updated, old one wasn’t working)
Month: June 2013
Patched ARM to correctly launch NA Aion’s 4.0 (both 32/64 bits) and Hackforge 4.0 PTS.
Support for bard/gunner will be added soon when I have a chance to test both on my own to parse all their skills.
Hackforge anounced today they will be translating the game for spanish, italian, polish, turkish, ..
I will not be working on having ARM run with these clients, as has been the case for french and german.
ARM will remain working with only English clients, although it will still work with others if you use the North American Aion data pak files. Translations for the program are also not planned, there is no need to translate software when it’s available in English.

Content language and comments moderation
Just a couple things I think need to be clarified after some of the recent moderated comments in this website:
- Posters with fake email address are very likely to be flagged as spam and removed.
- Comments in a language other than English will be also removed, if you want to reply on the case of the french GM please do so in English.
Gold Pack serves no purpose
Back a year ago when Hackforge acquired the European Aion userbase, they said something like “gold pack will prevent bots and goldsellers etc”, implying the system would prevent that and also provide the support staff for it and a better customer service. The GP costs 10 euro/month ($13).
I see our money is put to good use preventing botters and goldselling, and not just inflating their income with this bullshit model, the worst in the entire history of Aion publishers: pay-to-win + required subscription + botting + goldselling + no GM staff + no customer service.
Fixed some issues with “log stream error”.
In-game surveys, US NC vs Hackforge
Spams users with in-game surveys to direct them to their cash shop, most times without any special event or bonus, just a reminder that they can buy stuff at the shop. This while the European version managed by hackforge has a subscription fee (through gold pack, 10 euro), is Pay-2-win, allows hackers and botters, has nothing you could call customer service, GMs who play the game abusing their powers, their staff keeps threatening and banning users in the forums for no good reasons and behave like a dictatorship built by their abusive practices, showing a complete lack of respect towards the players who pay for their wages.
Sometimes gives a survey to remind players about the Atlas feature, which is free, through which they can claim lots of useful and free rewards like manastones, dyes, enchant stones, some beginner pvp jewels: http://gameguide.na.aiononline.com/aion/atreian#ElyosPath
At the same time, they are comepletely free, no hidden subscription, great support, polite and kind mods and customer support staff who treat players as people.
Something goes wrong with the servers, reboot, some bug etc, what do they do?
Hackforge: one or more of the following:
- Deny any issues
- Blame it on the players
- Ignore it
- Threat and ban users who complain in the forums
- Give absolutely no reward
- Take no responsibility
- Find any worthless and ridiculous excuse why it happened
Polite message from the staff and a little reward
Where do you wanna play?
Improved blocking of cheating apps.
