Eathena[]

Eathena is a Private Ragnrok Online Emulator that was designed for a KRO (Korean Ragnarok Online) Client. The Server software has a C++ front-end and MySQL back-end, and is made compatible with the KRO client via Hex Editing and DIFF offset patches. It is rumored to be the simplest server to deploy and manage, but has a downside with Korean based formating in all (s)data.grf and client "Data" directories.

Platforms[]

Currently eAthena will run on Linux, FreeBSD, and Windows. There are talks of MAC ports, but are unsupported at this time.


Classes and Progression[]

Currently, the latest version of eAthena supports all current Official Classes and Transcendent Classes. Originally the eAthena struggled to get the "Extended" Classes: (Taekwon, Star Gladiator, Soul Linker, Ninja, Gunslinger) to even display properly, let alone function as in-game content.


Maps[]

One of the biggest challenges for the eAthena team, was the implementation of maps defined in Gravity Inc.'s (s)data.grf. The mapping procedure involved taking the existing (s)data.grf, and creating a "Map-server" that could locate all of the resource files in the (s)data.grf



  • (s)data.grf Refers to either the data.grf (Normal Client) or sdata.grf Sakray (Test server) client.
