How do NA and EU regions manage server merges?


They added a new server recently, which is now getting merged into an old one, I guess due to low population. Players from the old server are safe, if there is a character name collision, only the characters from the new server are affected:


we will be consolidating the Ereshkigal server into the already existing Katalam server on May 22. Players on Katalam (and Danaria) will not be impacted by this consolidation, however, players coming from Ereshkigal will need to be aware of a number of very important things that could affect your character


They added a new server recently, which got merged into an old one, I guess due to low population. Players from the old server got screwed if they were not so active lately, with charnames from the new (few months old) server taking precedence over the server they merged into. Result: people have lost their charnames which they had for over 10 years since even before Gameforge took over the EU region, for characters which could be even just a few days old.

ARM 2.9 update for Aion 6.5

Major update with many fixes for the Aion 6.x client for NA/EU (there might be more issues left for NA)

  • 6.5 client support
  • AionDPS session uploads: after pveranks site closed, a new website is born: www.AionDPS.com – you can now upload your game sessions here
  • Added new tool: “Magic Suppresion Tool” in the Tools menu (probably useless now)
  • Added skill icons in the Skills window and re-arranged the columns
  • Notification windows redesigned
  • Parsing speed improvements
  • New session extension: “.ArmV2”. This is now the new default extension for session files (you can still open the old ones)
  • Updated the Help menu, removing dead links and adding new ones
  • Some new options in the Settings:
    * “Set system.cgf read-only”
    * “Delete chat.log on start-up”
    * “Move” feature, explained below:

With this feature you can move the chat.log file to another location, like from your SSD to a HDD to save the lifespan of your SSD, or much better: move it to a RAMDISK. If you move the log to a ramdisk, the file will never be written to your disks, only to your RAM memory, and it’s also several times faster than even the best SSDs. Previously ARM had this feature but it wasn’t working very well (Aion client was reverting the change), now it has been improved and should work properly. Consider this a Beta release, so please inform me of any issues. (Set the RAMDisk to at least 500MB -1GB)

What’s next? for ARM 3.0 I will add network mode, so the data will be gathered from the network instead, thus no longer needing the chat.log. I will then also add healing meter and support for the Korean client and any EU language packs available.



Some news

The next major update for ARM (2.9) is almost here, to be released within the next few days, with support for the EU/NA 6.5 client, AionDPS.com session uploads and a few extras. For 3.0 soon after I will add network mode support (parse dmg and heal data from network packets) and support for the Korean client.

I’m also releasing a little tool to extract PAK files:
