5 years as a Admin / GM / Developer

What I think about Ragnarok….a place I got new friends….also….enemies?

I still remember the day I become GM (TrillionRO) and Admin (MomoeRO) for the first time. I learned everything about Ragnarok from someone. Its been 5 years I develop a Ragnarok server. Its really fun when I know that I able to develop a Ragnarok Private Server like others who already successfully make a Ragnarok Server. When make Ragnarok server, its not that we can get a perfect server. Patience and hard work are important when making a Ragnarok Server. Even official got bugs sometimes and takes time to fixed it. In Ragnarok, giving up is not an option to make a successful server.  Bugs just a normal problem that you will found when make a server. All bugs can be fixed if you keep trying find solution to fix it. So, no need to give up… =)

Friends in Ragnarok? Not all can be called them as your own REAL friend….

The day I was about to give up after I got lot server problems, I left XerexRO. Then, I come back handle my own server. I met few friends from my own server and BersihRO. They really nice with me. Even, they give me advice not to give up. After almost 1 year, I lost my 2 best friends. I really miss them lot. Still remember those memories with them. Sometimes, I think….why I keep help those people who didn’t care if I got problem when handle my server? Not all can be trusted these days. It’s not like I hope they will help me back. The reason I help them…not because I want become popular. I like helping people. But…did they see me as their friends? Some of them maybe yes….some of them maybe no. Even some of them keep using me for their own good. But…it’s ok…all become pasts now….. Thanks for those who support me before. Be careful when you want to trust someone…even he/she are your best friend…. Racist, Backstabbers, Cheaters, Scammers? There are everywhere……

What if I return as a Ragnarok developer like before?

I don’t think it will same like before. Too many admins and GMs already quit ro and focus their real life. I admit Ragnarok is a nice game to play with friends without cheating and scamming. What I hope is…I can continue develop a Ragnarok Private Server like before when I was become an admin of MomoeRO which is my first Ragnarok server for the first time. For those who still develop a Ragnarok Private Server, keep up a good work and don’t easily give up when got problem.

P/S : Sorry for Noob English. =)

How to setting drop rates

Open up /conf/battle/drops.conf and look for the following

// The rate the common items are dropped (Items that are in the ETC tab, besides card)
item_rate_common: 100
item_rate_common_boss: 100
item_drop_common_min: 1
item_drop_common_max: 10000

// The rate healing items are dropped (items that restore HP or SP)
item_rate_heal: 100
item_rate_heal_boss: 100
item_drop_heal_min: 1
item_drop_heal_max: 10000

// The rate at which usable items (in the item tab) other then healing items are dropped.
item_rate_use: 100
item_rate_use_boss: 100
item_drop_use_min: 1
item_drop_use_max: 10000

// The rate at which equipment is dropped.
item_rate_equip: 100
item_rate_equip_boss: 100
item_drop_equip_min: 1
item_drop_equip_max: 10000

// The rate at which cards are dropped
item_rate_card: 100
item_rate_card_boss: 100
item_drop_card_min: 1
item_drop_card_max: 10000

// The rate adjustment for the MVP items that the MVP gets directly in their inventory
item_rate_mvp: 100
item_drop_mvp_min: 1
item_drop_mvp_max: 10000

// The rate adjustment for card-granted item drops.
item_rate_adddrop: 100
item_drop_add_min: 1
item_drop_add_max: 10000

// Rate adjustment for Treasure Box drops (these override all other modifiers)
item_rate_treasure: 100
item_drop_treasure_min: 1
item_drop_treasure_max: 10000

All item_rate_* values can range from 0 to 1000000 (100 = 100%) and item_drop_* values can range from 1 to 10000 (100 = 1.00%). The meaning of the lines is explained using the common items block, but can be applied to other blocks as well (read the comments of each block, to see, what they refer to). Where there is no ‘boss’ line, it is simply not applicable to differentiate between normal and boss monsters.

100 = 0.01%
1000 = 0.1%
10000 = 1%
100000 = 10%
1000000 = 100%
