Some useful notes about things people often ask me:

 

1. Chatlog issues

I’ve run into a few users who were unable to get the chat.log enabled no matter what they tried. The issue seems related to the Aion folder being in “Program Files”, probably under some sort of protection or folder virtualization/sandboxing by windows. The easiest way to solve this is by moving the folder outside of Program Files. I have mine in “C:\Aion” f.e and everyone I told to do that got it working that way.

So simply cut the entire Aion folder and paste it in the C:\ root, with the client closed.

You will have to change your path in the publisher’s launcher after this, so that you can continue getting updates:

Euro launcher: (click on Settings)

2013-03-18 - 08.08.36 ~ capture

US launcher: right-click on Aion, select “Properties”

I have my NC US client elsewhere in this case, but you would select the C:\Aion folder here

2013-03-18 - 08.10.24 ~ capture

 

2. Game.DLL error

If you have just reinstalled Windows, you are very likely to encounter this issue, when you launch the game you get a weird error about Game.dll and then it shuts down.

Fix: simply download and run these 3 files:

http://download.microsoft.com/download/8/B/4/8B42259F-5D70-43F4-AC2E-4B208FD8D66A/vcredist_x86.EXE
http://download.microsoft.com/download/8/B/4/8B42259F-5D70-43F4-AC2E-4B208FD8D66A/vcredist_x64.EXE
http://download.microsoft.com/download/8/B/4/8B42259F-5D70-43F4-AC2E-4B208FD8D66A/vcredist_IA64.EXE

If you happen to read this post by 2020 and the links are no longer valid, I have uploaded them to Mega (all 3 installers are in the single zip file)

3. How to install Japanese voices

Download the voice pack here: (528 MB) (you will need either Winrar or 7-zip to unpack this file)

US 4.0: https://mega.co.nz/#!zkQDhKxQ!OXOj1CFTQhmrQqnjuJSUXCuRou8OwkX4xsdgUtdgiTY

edit: all links are down on copyright abuse bla bla.. sorry I don’t have any working links right now

Next, with the Aion client closed, open the corresponding folder for your version of the client (US or EU):
you might need to create the folder if it does not exist, most probably for EU client

US: C:\Aion\L10N\1_enu
EU: C:\Aion\L10N\2_eng

then unzip the downloaded file there, so that a new “Sounds” folder will appear after the extraction:

4. How to install US Client “Data Pack” (Updated June 2014)

Everyone in Europe is unhappy with our publisher, one of the reasons being they completely destroyed the client language, renaming items and quests and breaking many things:

http://rainy.ws/2013/03/02/gameforge-destroyed-aionarmory-for-european-players/

One way to “fix” this, is to use the US NC client “data pack” as they call it, located in “L10N\1_enu\data”. Here’s how: (Aion client closed!)

Download the file here, which I conveniently uploaded for you:

For EU Aion 4.6

UPDATE:

Much easier way to install it: simply open ARM and go to the menu Tools/System Tools/Install NA Data.pak

arm update

older method:

[Download not found]

and overwrite the one located here, pasting the one you just downloaded, in there:

2013-03-18 - 08.27.33 ~ capture

edit: a better way is to make an extra folder at “\L10N\2_eng\Data\” and put the file there, then it won’t be overwritten by the launcher. the folder name depends on the region though, this one works for EU, not sure about RUS or others. An issue with this however, is that when there is a major update of the Aion client, it probably won’t work until you delete this pak file or replace it with a newer version.

The chat log enables but I have to do it everytime I close aion , it seems like the client deletes the file when I close aion.

dunno if I remember correctly, but in 3.x and early 4.x patches i think abyss titles were like “Asmodian Army…”. Ist it correct that titles now are just “Army..”, or am I doing something wrong?

Hello, i installed the NA Data Pack from ARM, and it works but i noticed a thing : some people have the “Asmodian” or “Elyos” before the “4-Star Army Officer” and i don’t get that. Is that possible to get it ? I saw a german streamer yesterday who got it.

Hi, so I re-installed ARM yesterday and tried to also install the NA-datapak, but it didn’t work, the client just starts with gameforge’s crap pak. I also already read the comments in this section and replaced the original data.pak with the NA-one, no improvement. Any idea where this could come from?

Okay thank you.
But one thing: I can start Aion with the english client with ARM, but not with the german client.
So ARM works only with the english client XD (So i play now with the english client. It doesnt matter =) )
I am very grateful for your help. Have a nice Day.
Yours sincerely,

Hello,

I tried to install the Rainmeter on my EU client today. I play with the German client. Every time I replace the NA Pak files, the client controlls at the start all the files and replaces the NA Pak File.

What can i do?

Thanks for help.
Yours sincerely,

Uraltbobby

Since the new update today, the game just starts with gameforge crap pak. Reinstalling the datapak doesn’t seem to help

I’ve just installed ARM and I have the “chatLog not found” issue, even after following this step, it tells me the same thing, I’m running it as admit as well…I moved the Aion folder several times. My game folder is always on a different drive but doubt that would be the cause of the problem, the path is set correct as well.

I recently formated C: and reinstalled Windows 7 64-Bit and now everytime i start ARM i get an “Error checking for new version (1), check that your firewall isn’t blocking ARM” and after a few moments the (1) changes to (0). I am using Comodo Firewall and Avira Antivir but i already uninstalled both and even disabled the Windows firewall but i still got the same error.

I have the same problem on my laptop btw. It’s running only Comodo firewall and I didn’t go through all the trouble uninstalling it.

I’ve been having an issue with arm since the last update. It starts up as normal and I can launch aion, but then it records no dps, if i run a new instance it records dps. But then after a short while arm goes into not responding and shuts down, but leaves aion running. Sorry for my english. Please can help :)

I’ve been having a strange problem with ARM. I downloaded it a few days ago and had it working for about two days, but now when I open it, it doesn’t remember its settings outside of “main settings” (not sure if that part’s normal), and after a short while, all the options under “Tools” become grayed out, with the exceptions of Damage/DPS profiler, AP Relics Calc and Item library search. It also doesn’t appear to track the game chat anymore, and it tells me that there’s an update available even though I’m using 1.96. When I click the update prompt,… Read more »
