Note: If you run into problems be sure to read through the whole thread. We keep finding out new stuff about how the new system works, so I may not have the info in this post yet. I'll add new information as quickly as I can.
All right, this is a lot more complicated than it previously was, but it IS doable to play the game on VLOW. It's late and I've just gotten home, so I'll keep this to the basics, I'll flesh it out fully sometime tomorrow evening or the weekend. BTW, Horie-chan please feel free to add this to your wonderful guide on VLOW
First off, you're going to need to install the OGP Launcher, you can get it here:
OGPlanet.com - It's Your World - La Tale
If you're having trouble getting the OGP Launcher to launch La Tale you're out of luck for the moment. There is a registry file from frederick09
that may help if you've installed La Tale to the default directory ( C:\Games\OGP\La Tale\ ). I plan to test this further and write more about it, but this falls under fleshing things out later. (Sorry, it's late and I have to go out early tomorrow!
Next up, you're going to need Process Explorer from Sysinternals/Microsoft. You can obtain it here:
Unzip the file you download and run procexp.exe, now run OGP's Launcher and log into it. Go to La Tale and click on Game Start, wait for the old LT Launcher window to come up:
Now, go back to Process Explorer. Scroll down until you see ogplauncher.exe and LaTaleLauncher.exe:
Right Click on LaTaleLauncher.exe and choose properties. You should get a window like this:
The information you need is in the box below Command line. Just highlight the text with your mouse and move all the way to the right to find your userid and token, they'll be in the positions the red text take up below:
Once you've selected all the text you can hit Ctrl-C to copy it. I recommend you paste it into notepad for the next step.
Now, edit your old VLOW launch link by right clicking on it and choosing properties. You need to modify the Target box to be like this, substituting your userid and the token you got above from Process Explorer:
"C:\Games\OGP\La Tale\LaTaleClient.exe" /Windowed /LoginServer:188.8.131.52:10000 /Run:VLOW /LOCALE:USA /PUBLISHER:OGPLANET /WEBARG:serviceid=5`userid=userid`token=62ebe527b0c818a71cebfb2e7da5fe1aIMPORTANT: NOTE THE ` MARKS! They must be in there, they're not just for looks.
Here's the line in a code window so you can see it easier:
"C:\Games\OGP\La Tale\LaTaleClient.exe" /Windowed /LoginServer:184.108.40.206:10000 /Run:VLOW /LOCALE:USA /PUBLISHER:OGPLANET /WEBARG:serviceid=5`userid=userid`token=62ebe527b0c818a71cebfb2e7da5fe1a
Personally I recommend you copy the text above into Notepad on another line, then replace the userid and tokens with those you already pasted in from Process Explorer. Then copy the modified line and paste it back into your VLOW shortcut Target line. It's easier to make sure you edit it properly this way. Of course you can change that from /WINDOWED to /FULL and any of the other stuff Horie-chan talks about in her guide
. Save your changes and the shortcut's ready to go.
After you have your shortcut modified, close out Process Explorer and the La Tale Launcher. You can also exit OGP's Launcher if you want (I've tested it both ways, it works fine). But be sure you close out Process Explorer, Xtrap doesn't like it very well and may kill La Tale off randomly on you. (I had that happen a few times looking into how the new method works.
One caution on this method: tokens can change over time, they probably also expire after an unknown amount of time
If you find that this stops working, just go through the steps above to get a new token and edit your shortcut again. Also, if you do have a token expire, please report here how long it was since you'd first obtained it. With enough reports we can get a good idea of how long they're good, I'll add it to the info above.
for helping get the information together on how to do this.
