RagnarokOnline Patcher Lite (c) 2009-2018 Ai4rei/AN
Replacement for Gravity's RO patcher. Works faster and doesn't consume your entire memory for just seeing it crashing, aside from this, it works almost exactly as the official patcher does, so that it shouldn't break, unless Gravity changes something vital to their patcher. It is free of any cost and works on every 32-bit and 64-bit Microsoft* Windows* platform.
[2018-01-21] Release 184.108.40.2069
This release fixes a potential crash due to wrong memory usage.
[2018-01-14] Release 220.127.116.114
This release adds iRO:Restart, kRO Zero and phRO, and updates jRO patch information. Fixes a super-random crash on super-modern systems.
[2017-12-07] Development updates
Currently there are only nightly releases for the insane ones. Recently the memory manager was replaced, which causes less memory to go to waste and makes exiting a bit quicker. The UI will remain more or less the same, most of the changes happen under the hood in preparation for new features. There are also plans to add support for new pRO and iRO:Restart, assuming they stay alive until the next stable release, which probably will not make it this year anymore.
[2017-09-07] Missile testing at Gravity
The patch 2017-09-06_data_sakray_k.rgz updates the binkw32.dll responsible for bink video rendering in a way, that breaks old clients. If that applies to you, here is the old one.
[2017-05-25] Release 18.104.22.1684
This release updates kRO patch information to reflect a change in the patch transfer protocol (HTTP). This update is needed to continue receiving new kRO patches whether you use the mirror server or not.
Can be found in the news archives.
As some countries seem blocked from using the official kRO patch server, the patcher offers tamper-resistant patch download from community contributed mirrors as fall-back mechanism from version 2.4.5 onwards. Anyone willing is free to apply for inclusion into the list of approved mirrors. Patches served through mirrors are subject to delayed release due to technical reasons.
Do not provide mirrors for the downloads below, you will end up with an outdated version quickly. Do not hot-link to the downloads either for the very same reason. Link to this section. Thank you.
