  1. Greetings citizens of the republic! On August 5, 2020 at 3AM (Server Time - GMT+8), we will be conducting a server maintenance which will require a complete server shut down in order to safely perform and implement updates and fixes to the server files. Below are few of the updates included in this scheduled maintenance. New Items Minor THQ Requirement Modifications Some quality of experience improvements And the usual bugs and fixes. The server's engines will be shut down for about 3-6 hours which includes both implementation and testing. We urge you to log off beforehand to avoid account related issues and make all the necessary preparations. We have assigned C-3PO to assist in creating the patch notes and I will be posting his list as soon as the server is back up and self-sustaining. Please take the time to rest or join us in our official communications channels.

  2. Thank you for this! It's nice to see people understand the amount of work on each of out plates and the decisions we have to make based on the importance of our tasks. I for one am supposed to lead the forum and improve it but the team needed help with other things so I only completed the critical tasks here and helped the team release a successful patch on the 27th. The FPS Drop issue is being discussed and is one of the major issues we are trying to solve. We already have a few suspects and we'll be conducting tests to see which one of them really is to blame. Unfortunately, the best way to test our theories is to test them live and during WoE because it's difficult re-create the exact scenarios during WoE by ourselves. -Yoda
  3. Greetings citizens of the republic! We promised you content, we're giving you content! This day marks our first major update and we hope we're off to a good start based on your standards. We still have a lot more in our to-do list but we couldn't finish them in time so they'll be released in the next patch but we hope this first one will meet your expectations. More improvements will gradually pick up speed as we finish residual clean up work and switch to high gear on research & development. On July 27, 2020 at 3AM (Server Time - GMT+8), we will be conducting a server maintenance which will require a complete server shut down in order to safely perform and implement updates and fixes to the server files. Below are few of the updates included in this scheduled maintenance. Gepard Updates Item Buffs New WoE Castles Skill & Item Fixes Exploit Fixes New Costumes The server's engines will be shut down for about 4-8 hours which includes both implementation and testing.

  4. Unfortunately, we discovered a major security flaw in andRO and we couldn't let it continue. Unless andRO's developers are able to secure this flaw, we might not even consider going back at all. The server's security trumps whatever reputation XPRO has in this case.
  5. GM James is not selling any in-game item at all. He accepts donations and in return, the donors are given special gifts as appreciation for their generosity and support. However to answer your question, yes, he can sell anything he wants and it'll be counted as RMT despite him being the owner of the server. However, he knows the exact effects it will have on his server's economy if he sells things like +10 VSets or 4 slotted DWings or whatever you can imagine. He does not have any reason to do so because it would put the server's life and his success, at risk. Yes I do agree with you that the previous dev did not have any right to do so which resulted in a thorough cleanup after they were removed.
  6. If this is a bug, please report it in the Bug Tracker. Posting that here will not get it the proper attention it needs. None as of yet but it is still currently being worked on by both XPRO's devs and ours. Thanks! We hope so too. Thank you for the continued support! Don't forget to invite your friends!
  7. Hi! These are very good points you have here but let me try my best to address them one at a time. Yes I've heard about this. The previous dev also had his issues in the past but at an extreme level. I think we all have some hidden dirt in our lives at some point. The only difference is, James used to be a regular player like us but now owns the server he is working on and he knows the exact negative effects of that to a server. The previous admin was still clearly involved in something that did not do the server any good which is why it lead to him being expelled along with his loyal staff. I talked to James 1 on 1 before he hired me and he told me his ultimate goal for DarkRO Rebirth is for it to live very long much like the original DarkRO and focus on gameplay and content instead of costumes. These were his promises that made me agree to take on the job he had for me. The removal of these commands was mainly due to security issues and that guarantees that it will not be usable unless there's a valid purpose approved by both admin and management teams. This ensures that nobody else except the allowed individuals would be able to produce items in the server through GM commands. It is a given that we would still need to produce items for events and other purposes but hacking, hijacking and 3rd parties are guaranteed to not be able to produce anything illegal now. Obviously we wouldn't be able to send you server files so you can check whether it has been removed or not due to security issues. It can be installed back again but only when needed such as producing event prizes but it is now removed immediately after use and can only be used by James himself. The only answer that can be given at this point would be to trust GM James and his genuine intentions of taking care of the server he loves so much. The removal of the previous team involved in the exact activities we fear (which they proved themselves btw), would also work towards proving that James wants the best for the server. DarkRO Rebirth is a success in his book and it would be very unwise to treat it as a cash grab server much like the intentions of the previous dev.
  8. I would say yes since GM James already has a list of legit Thana cards before "The Event". However, I would strongly recommend saving all evidence of the transaction such as screenshots of the trade and the conversation just in case. I'm sure it wouldn't be too much of a hassle considering the value of the card. We have it in the server already but it wasn't supported that much by the previous dev. If you guys could write up a detailed suggestion after some discussion with other players, that would be awesome! The second paragraph definitely describes what this team is going to focus on. Right now, we're just pretty busy with clean up and past commitments made to the players. Once the dust settles, expect more of that. The pricing of these costumes will definitely be considered. Don't get me wrong, there will still be costumes here and there but we'll be reducing the focus on them and add more mechanics to the general gameplay.
  9. Hello citizens of the republic! I come before you with more good news regarding your preferred handheld platform! GM James has decided on pushing the switch from AndRO over to XPRO! We have been in contact with XPRO’s developers for the past week and have already completed the initial pre-installation, compatibility and development checks! We are going for it! Our development team is currently juggling several tasks all at once and is barely getting 2 hours of straight sleep. They are direct descendants of maintenance and repair droids and they are currently in the process of studying all of the functions and features of XPRO. Security and stability is their top priority and beta testing may be able to start 2 weeks from now! XPRO – A Cross-Platform Ragnarok Online Client XPRO is a client based on the RoBrowser project by KeyWorld and acts as the update to port it over to mobile devices. It claims to be the most advanced custom RO client ever made and has the advantage of being very lightweight and cross platform (Windows, Linux, MacOS & Android). Check out XPRO’s official demo video below: We are very excited to try this out ourselves when testing is open and we really hope our mobile users appreciate this update. We apologize for the lack of information regarding mobile. We just didn’t want to announce anything prematurely without confirming anything first. See you soon on DarkRO Rebirth Mobile! Thank you and may the force be with you!
  10. Yes, yes and yes. We'll consider every single suggestion this time. And yes, please re-submit them because it's hard to keep track of the old ones that got rejected by the previous dev. Ooohh that's a tricky one. But the answer to that must remain the same to be fair for all and to avoid fake claims. I'm really sorry but this case cannot be considered.
  11. Of all the updates I included in the post, I'm glad this one caught your attention the most. :P We already have a bunch of stuff lined up to be fixed, added or modified to slowly improve game play and balance things out. Watch out for the next update!
  12. Hello Citizens of the Republic! It has been a week since “The Event” and despite the difficulties and setbacks, the server has become relatively stable. Before anything else, on behalf of the new management, we sincerely apologize for what happened. “The Event” was a major financial dispute that resulted in the dismissal of paid developers and their cohorts. It is quite unfortunate that some people would not change for the better despite the blessings that have come their way. We were lucky enough to have saved the server at an earlier time. If this would have happened 6 months from now, the server economy would be in total chaos and the features and updates that earns a server its reputation would not have been given any attention. Thank you for sticking with us! Moving forward, DarkRO Rebirth is now heading towards proper server development and balancing to keep the game interesting instead of flooding it with costumes. Below are some updates that we would want you to know about. R2-D2’s Update Logs Server Security was on the very top of our list. We had to ensure that hijacking was no longer possible and that no in-game exploits are taken advantage of. Here are several actions we have taken to ensure the security of the server. @item – Removed from the source code. (Even GM James cannot @item anymore) Shower Event Command – Removed from the source code. GM Powers Command – Removed from the source code. Constant Server Backup – Every 2 hours except during WoE, KoE and BG. (Will gradually adjust to longer gaps in between) Server Files Access – Now exclusive to GM James. Illegally obtained items from the previous developer is consistently being traced and deleted and the involved accomplices are permanently banned. All legitimate Thanatos Cards before “The Event” have been listed down and that leaves us with less than 5% left to complete the investigation. We should be done by tonight and all that would be left are legitimate cards from hunting. All legal LHZ cards have been accounted for. The rest have been confiscated and deleted. Illegally obtained high refine items including god items were confiscated and deleted. All known accomplices of the previous developer have been banned and/or gepard blocked. RMT Sellers are consistently being caught and banned. Lost item cases are being taken care of 1 at a time. Unfortunately, about 80-90% of these cases have been found to be caused by players who logged into the stolen server to taunt and provoke the previous developer which resulted in retaliation and turned into a hack case in the legitimate DarkRO Rebirth server. Unfortunately, there is nothing we can do with these particular hack cases anymore. For legitimate lost item cases, please understand that the power needed to complete the investigation on your case lies only with GM James and he is taking care of them 1 by 1. In order to complete the investigation, sufficient evidence must be collected and some of it can only be obtained while the server is down during maintenance otherwise, the server will lag with extra queries being sent to the database. We hope you understand and thank you for your patience. Other updates are as follows: Organized new staff roles and responsibilities. Ongoing forum clean up and restoration. DarkRO Mobile – https://dark-ro.com/forum/topic/4325-great-news-for-mobile-users-in-the-republic/ Other commitments of the previous management will still be reviewed and will all be addressed soon. Thank you and may the force be with you!
  13. July 15, 2020 Updated Payment Method links. Added GCash option for The Philippines.
  14. We've been in contact with them for the past few days now. :) Standby for updates. We just want to make sure everything is secure before we move on.
  15. Hello anDROID users of the republic, We sincerely apologize for the lack of information regarding your favorite platform. Unfortunately, we have discovered security issues in the current android client which could have also affected the previous management. We've have decided to postpone development in the android client that we are currently using until we are 100% satisfied that it cannot be maliciously exploited. On the other hand, we are also considering upgrading to a more secure and stable client to provide a better experience. Rest assured, android will be back as soon as possible! R2-D2 is awesome and C3-PO may be annoying but is still lovable so it's safe to say that we have not forgotten our droids. You will all receive the same compensation that desktop users have received in case you haven't claimed yet. It'll be exclusive to you and desktop users will not be able to benefit from it anymore. We are truly sorry for the inconvenience but we look forward to a better android! -Yoda
