[How to] Manually patch HK Elsword
This may be a breakthrough, I have found a way to directly download the patch files from the patch server.

Using my knowledge of <cough> hacking <cough cough> I was able to use a Packet Sniffer to track down where exactly you get data from when you patch Elsword.

This MAY change, but is correct as of 27/04/2010 18:42

Of course replace the X's with the number data file that you want.

The patch server has a frequency to "reset" so I'm using a download manager called FlashGet to keep the download file intact if it does decide to reset.

Hopefully this will make your patching process alittle smoother.

I also found this:

See if you guys can make anything out of this... XD

I'm still trying to find a "UpdateFilelist.xml" file on this server. I'll get back to you if I do find anything.

Edit: I haven't ACTUALLY tried this yet, I'm currently downloading data033.kom which is 39MBs big at a rate of 10kb/s... fun times.

Edit2: I can confirm that this works, all there is to do now is to somehow find which files need to be patched... or you could go ahead and download all the data files at the same time.

Edit3: Guide on how to patch all data files at the same time:

First step: Download a firefox plugin called "DownThemAll!" Google, or otherwise to obtain. Install into firefox and get it working.

Second step:

On Firefox, click Tools>DownThemAll! Tools>Manager...

Third step:

Click Add URLs

Fourth step:

Input this URL into the URL field, Click OK, and click that you're okay with starting 99 jobs:[01:99].kom

Once all the files are downloaded, you can replace all of them. I recommend that you Copy and Paste them in and confirm replacing so that you have 2 copies of it.

That is all.

Remember you can use this file list to find where other files that you might need to patch are:

WoW =D nice it works perfectly
data033.kom downloaded with 25-30 kb/s that means ~30-45 mins :D

Siegheart 04-27-2010 12:37 PM

if thats work that be realy greate but litle slow downloading but bether that site from normal Patch -.-
and if someone download fast patch can upload full patch on forum that be more greatefull

blazedragon 04-27-2010 01:47 PM

my download from this is at 500kbps, not bad from 20mbps connection us to hong kong servers

average of about 2 minutes per kom?

and from looking at the log file i think that that is just directions for the patcher, "check file name, size, etc etc' n some offset'

basically just check make sure every file is there, not tampered with, same file size as its supposed to be, make sure its up to date. thats probably why it take so long to patch, if its rechecking every file while you patch

but for me is about same speed as normal patcher so i can stick to that unless it gets stuck

Enky 04-27-2010 03:22 PM

This is mainly for when people get stuck. I believe that the download resetting back to 0% is a timeout error, this doesn't occur if downloading the files with a download manager.

Edit: I put up the patch info to see if anyone can find a way to find out with data files need to be updated in advance.

If we knew this, we could use this method to download all the relevant data files at the same time, thus resulting in a very fast patch method.

blazedragon 04-27-2010 03:29 PM

there is probably another link to update server for that

Enky 05-18-2010 07:49 AM

Remember you can manually patch the patcher itself too... just use the link above. (And replace)

This is a direct link to the official patch server, meaning you'd be getting the file directly from NEXON.

Zeronov 05-19-2010 09:36 AM

Try to download Free Download Manager and use it to download HK Elsword patch notes.

FYI: 1 min. or less for 10mb files and 3-4mins. for 30-50MB files

maxpayne 05-21-2010 06:17 AM

This method of Enky is a very fast way to DL patches for HK Elsword :py55:

Hope this gets pinned :py56:

xFlare 05-24-2010 11:07 AM

Downloading all 099.kom files right now.

Thx for the guide^^

Enky 06-27-2010 06:42 AM

Kah-bump... partly because I need to show my friends this as well sometimes XD

Reinshiki 06-27-2010 08:11 AM

I am so glad that I can patch without problems. o3o

Nice guide though. +REP.

FonicArte 07-20-2010 10:45 AM

Wow, hi everyone. So I did everything that was said in the guide, but when I paste the link into DownThemAll, it says file source error. Is this because the link isnt working anymore? And is there another fast way to patch Elsword? Any constructive advice is greatly appreciated. ^^

the link stated "....dataXX...." you should write the # of the data file you need to DL D:

Bump for the spam of patching problems from numerous people

Silmarien 09-11-2010 12:54 AM

This might be a stupid question but do you must replace the files while it is patching or close the patcher and copy paste the file which took a long time?
(I just don't seem 2 get :py61:)
