  • Fixed the missing scroll bar in the Players DB/Hackers List window
  • Partially reintroduced hacker detection and telemachus list of previously banned and long time known hackers, most of which were given a 2nd (more like 200th) chance by corrupt European publisher Gameforge

Note that you can report Euro hackers directly from ARM, right-click on them and select “Send Hacker Report”.

Small update

March 19th, 2013 No comments
  • Minor fixes.
  • Added support for TS’ Raksha (?) transform skill damage for US client.

This was initially done for the Euro client, thinking the skill name was the same in both clients, but it turns out GF in their crusade to kill the English playerbase changed also this.

Stupid GF name = Absorption of the Flame Spirit
Original US name = Flame Spirit Absorption

Claim your money back

[18:47:45] x: you know they still didnt reply to my ticket on tera?
[18:47:48] x: hope they all die

If this happened to you, paid for club etc and didn’t receive the items or any support, I strongly encourage you to take the money back. If you paid with VISA go to your bank and take the payment back, you can usually do that for 30 days after any transaction, or if you used paypal, start a claim and request the money back for not receiving the service.

Threats from Gameforge support staff

March 11th, 2013 No comments

A friend got me this earlier, he sent a report about a hacker, just to be threatened cause they are incapable of doing their job properly.

2013-03-11 - 02.42.23 ~ capture

^ What does that tell us?

  • They think there is a possible violation reflected in combat logs
  • But they either can’t check the server data or don’t want to
  • They will take videos which can be easily faked and edited before actual server data
  • They are unaware most noanimation hacks can’t be observed in videos

So my friend replied asking why they can’t just check the server logs with the timestamps provided and match the data, since it’s not feasible to have fraps recording 24/7, only to be threatened by the staff as they know they are in the wrong:

Gameforge mismanagement and abuse extends to all their games

March 7th, 2013 No comments

From a friend earlier, playing Tera EU:

[12:11:33] x: check when i sent the ticket, and im still waiting
[12:12:43] x: and our server keeps crashing during siege, but the worst thing is that a very important istance spawn only if the players kill some bosses, but you have only 1 hour do to it, if u cant do in time, no istance
[12:12:53] x: server crashes, we cant kill bosses, no istance
[12:13:05] x: people asking on forum, why the heck is this happening, do something
[12:13:05] x: and they ban
[12:13:09] x: and delete their account
[12:13:13] x: permaban
[12:13:20] x: 5 friends already banned just for asking

[12:17:35] x: i know many people complained about not receiving the items
[12:17:38] x: but srsly
[12:17:40] x: im still waiting
[12:18:02] x: tera club lasts 30 days, i have 18 days left
[12:18:05] x: still no items!
[12:18:33] x: also they said – its useless to contact support about that cuz “sooner or later” the items will be delivered
[12:18:47] x: but no answer at all?
[12:18:49] x: and omg
[12:18:54] x: ok some hours/days delay
[12:19:02] x: but 12 DAYS LATER!!! im still waiting!

Let this be a lesson to everyone, don’t spend any money on shop items or club for any of their games, if you ever want a new publisher.

  • Added new command “.sortclear” to clear roll window.
  • Added alpha blending (transparency) to chat windows separated from the main one, there is a new slider at the bottom.
  • Fixed “on top” for chat windows.
  • Reseted the option to show URLs in the tray, now it’s disabled by default (annoying with gold spammers).
  • Added a counter for socketing and enchants:

You can also process older logs for this, clicking Yes when it asks if you want to process also the chat.

Corruption at Gameforge has no limits

March 3rd, 2013 No comments

Update: the thread has been taken down as is Gameforge’s dictatorship policy: silence and threat everyone who oppose their abuse.

Don’t believe whatever you were told about the Sunakaya incident a while ago, that GM was fired bla bla, that’s all bs, I know the GM and he is still working at GF. Gameforge staff are downright lying about it, the GM was working for the Aion team temporarily while they lacked staff and is now under another games department.

And here we have another event today:

http://board.en.aionfreetoplay.com/board23-aion-the-game/board26-general-discussion/13363-yet-another-gameforge-corruption-story/

Copy/pasting, before they remove the post in the forums:

 

Yet another GameForge Corruption Story.

i really dunno where to start…its just every time we think that we have seen the last of gameforge they just surprise us with their level of nonprofessional actions.i`ll start from the end…2days ago morning time farming ingg guards as a full grp…<Surfas>* transformed to kill guards..and ofc all ks all when it comes to guards…we took almost all guards of him…he was mad and he called us motherf**kers.
30minutes later one of us (the one who trolled him) got banned….Strange!!!!!!!!!!!ofc tickets are worthless cuz somehow game staff will answer anything that doesn’t have Bold’s name in it.no ban reason…no response.now does that remind me of something???oh yea…Getstabbed got banned for calling <Surfas> a gay during siege(at 9:15pm exactly)…got banned in 20minutes exactly((seriously)) so gameforge is taking sides and responding to him that fast???????okay!!.
Sooka stole off <surfas> a few dabra(gold key) and bam..his account is locked for (((security reasons))) cuz gameforge staff thinks that someone is hacking it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!wow.
Lisara ks <Surfas> in guards and gets a ban for no reason no answer from staff nothing.(weren’t they fast 2 paragraphs ago????).And here it comes..the best Story….<Surfas> ninja a tatar mace from a chanter…and the community is punishing him on LFG /3….and WUUUT??? <<<GM Amritus>>> is online ORDERING ppl to STOP and kicking ppl offline defending him OOOMMMGGG!!!.he kicked getstabbed+Xeon to defend <Surfas>.
GAMEForge is Corrupt…and GMs playing the game give advantages/take advantages & sides/abuse their Authority…its a fact.
Update:

Gameforge destroyed AionArmory for European players.

March 2nd, 2013 No comments

If you didn’t know, Gameforge decided to change most of the item names in the European client to all sort of weird and bizarre names of their own which don’t make any sense, and ruin the use of armory for everyone.

Take for example this item/quest:

2013-03-02 - 08.41.52 ~ capture

Now you are wondering what this is about.. because you don’t seem to have a quest with that name, as the changed names don’t even match other related items in most of the cases, so you go to AionArmory.com as usual to find relevant information about the item or quest, just to find nothing..

Turns out the original English name for the item was “Fiery Heart”, and the quest name “Hearts of Fire”. (I found out the name by in-depth check of the logs by item number etc).

2013-03-02 - 08.44.30 ~ capture

 

 

Or say you want to look up some drops from Tiamat’s Stronghold (GF calls it Tiamat’s Fortress), all the names have also been changed, for example, Tiamat Guard’s Greatsword:

2013-03-02 - 08.47.06 ~ capture

is now called “Greatsword of the Tiamat Defence Troop” in the GF European client:

2013-03-02 - 08.48.02 ~ capture

 

 

Another one, the new abyss boss that pops on Sundays, Moltenus, drops items like:

2013-03-02 - 08.49.54 ~ capture

which in turn GF decided to rename them to “Fragment of Wrath Orb”.. ??? seriously? I think they must have been high on weed when they decided these names.

2013-03-02 - 08.51.17 ~ capture

 

All the armors in TS are also changed, most quests, etc..

So all these changes only come to ruin the user experience even further since their “3.5” update, and also undermine the usability of ARM’s item library, which contains the original US client database names.

2013-03-02 - 08.52.37 ~ capture

 

Gz Gameforge, you managed to beat yourselves once again in the rank of stupidity.

 

Final note, I will not be including a European client database for now to alleviate these issues, as I firmly object to all these retarded changes they’ve been doing which only break the game.
