Hi everybody!

I'm creating this tutorial for those who may have issues with our patcher or who prefer to manually patch their clients.
This will teach you how to retrieve the updated content from our patch server and apply it to your client manually without the use of our patcher.


First, you will need to find two things: Local version and remote version.
Local version is the version that your client is currently at right now.
Remote version is the version of the client that you'd like to update to.

Please note, that you may have to go through several local and remote versions before you are on the latest version of the client.

For example, before our last maintenance the local version should be 208.
After the maintenance, the remote version should be 209.

Now that you've found those versions, navigate to http://mabinogi.ir/patch/local_to_remote.zip
Replace local and remote with the version numbers you found earlier.

For our example, we'll use http://mabinogi.ir/patch/208_to_209.zip
Download and save this file somewhere nearby. You'll need it.

Extract the file you downloaded directly into your Mabinogi Professional game directory (where Client.exe lives) and then overwrite any files that are already existing.

This will bring your client up to date with the version you just patched on to it.


Please note that the launcher will be unaware that you updated past your local version, but you should still be able to join the game if you use the alternative launcher.

Thanks!

Would it be possible to include the version.dat with the updated version number in each manual patch or is it not really that necessary?

The zip files that you use for manual patching are also the same zip files that the launcher uses.

The launcher is what writes version.dat, and version.dat is only read by the launcher.

Essentially, the launcher will think you're outdated when you manually patch but the server won't, since actual client version is stored in the packages.

This means as long as you are persistently manually patching (and never really want to use the launcher again), it's not important to modify version.dat.

My bad. I just realized that it the Mabi Pro launcher acts just as the Nexon launcher did and that would be redundant to have both the launcher and update package modify the version information.

You can see the links in the images.
http://mabinogi.ir/patch/208_to_209.zip does work, so i assume you can just replace the versions with what you need though. Just figured i'd point out that you have to know specifically what you need to patch, unless i'm doing it wrong.

Yeah, that's correct. You must know specifically what your current version is (and then you just work your way up to the latest version which is found at http://mabinogi.ir/patch/p.txt, the first part of that text document is latest version).

Would there be any way to automate this process via another launcher? I'd like to use Hyddwyn Launcher since it is the most efficient launcher I've used thus far and it allows custom server profiles. Some of the values were already there as placeholders and I've input a few values but I have no idea if/how I can get some of the others.

You would have to ask the developer of that launcher, not us.

I'd REALLY appreciate if the some tweaks to the manual patching process were done.

Either redesign the auto-launcher to accept manually downloaded patches instead of freezing up and refusing to work if the patch archive is present. (have it do a verification check like normal, and if it works, it installs the patch. If it doesn't work, it deletes the archive and tries to re-download).

or change the launcher version file to be easily edited so If I'm having trouble with a patch, I'm not forever prevented from using the auto-launcher ever again.

I can just edit the version to the patch I manually installed and be able to use it for the other patches till I get to another one that refuses to download properly in the launcher.

Or at least include a launcher version update in the manual patches so the launcher can pick up and do the next one in order if i had to manual patch.
