ACE Online Valentines Massacre Patch

Updated World Ranking
Added Inventory Expansion to Item Shop (Maximum 5 Expansions)
Added Warehouse Expansion to Item Shop (Maximum 5 Expansions)
Added Remote Warehouse License to Item Shop
Event monster Choco Boy will spawn on any monster level 20 and higher.

The Event Monster Drops Choco Chips, which are used for the Event.

To create a Bloody Heart Crystal, you will need the following:

55 Airman Killmarks + 20 Choco Chip
50 Wingman Killmarks + 20 Choco Chip
45 Ace Killmarks + 20 Choco Chip
40 Veteran Killmarks + 20 Choco Chip
30 Top Gun Killmarks + 20 Choco Chip
20 Wing Commander Killmarks + 20 Choco Chip
10 Hero Killmarks + 20 Choco Chip

Aside from the special stuff the crystal can give (Only way to get the event radar) the Choco Boy can pretty much drop all the event weapons.

Limited Edition Black Paintjobs for the Original WP armor set. 300 per GEAR Card. Also in the Item Shop.

Please ignore the localization for the new cards and limited edition stuff, we didn't really get the files with proper information....

WARNING:
There is a bug that has been discovered by the developers which they're in the process of fixing.

If you paint your WP armor and then upgrade it's version class, it will lose it's paint.

So do not upgrade until this is fixed.

Oh yeah, just in case since I'm not even sure about this myself.

The Weapons MAY be deleted after the event. I need to confirm this so for safety's sake make them E7

As usual, if you guys see any weird issues, just holler.

hey echo...I have been playing AO glitch free for past few weeks with Windows 7. With the update, I can no longer run AO on my main computer. I tested it on my girlfriend's computer with XP OS, and it runs fine.

When I log in, I select my gear and appear in town, and it disconnects and I get:

"Connection to the server has been lost. Client will be terminated. (FieldWinSocket WS_CLOSED)"

Please fix this, I would like to be playing again.

Suba, a sincere THANK YOU is in order for putting links to 3rd party client downloads up on the ACE page. Would it be wishful thinking that the manual patch for latest client could be put up on one of those sites as well? I'm stuck not being able to play again (like every other patch that goes in) and anxiously await a friend to upload the manual patch to one of these sites when it's released. TIA

So they took something that was FREE (the paint shop) and turned it into another cash cow.

hey i have one question why you make the paints for 18k cr this is a joke make it 1k and i would understand it but this is a really joke -.-

EchoSaviour
February 11th, 2010, 04:54 PM
Well, here's the general rundown.

1: I get images of armors. I localize them with the assumption that they are new upgraded armor versions of the WP. Given the pricing of the other versions on this I pretty much followed suit.

2: Since I didn't get any extra details on the paints, I assumed armors since I haven't heard anything about the core paint system being added.

3: Patch comes along and they're paints. By then it's already too late to make the changes for the patch.

Since it's all based on what the other versions are doing with the pricing so forth, It was pretty much a big "WTF" on our ends once we found out the whole situation.

Oshima
February 11th, 2010, 05:01 PM
Well it is a great strategy to reduce the paints from lagging the servers too much. High cash shop price, limited availability, and poor design = very few flying around with it.

EchoSaviour
February 11th, 2010, 05:04 PM
There are a few interesting things about the new paint system that I cannot disclose. Suffice to say from what we can tell on our end it is 90x more flexible than the old one.

It should allow us to do some interesting things once we start talking with the devs. (Very interesting things)

I'll throw some examples

Regular Shop Paints
WP Shop Paints
CS Shop Paints
Monster Drop Paints
Paint that allows all gears to look the same
Recipe Paints

The list can go on quite a bit.

In a lot of cases, Winsocket error can mean that the server detected corrupted or non-updated files.

When patching the run as admin has to be done or else the game may not even properly patch the game.

BTW, in case no one remembers how the paint shop used to work, it NEVER kept the paint when you upgraded the armor, so it is only natural that it wouldn't keep on this new one. basically, do not try to complain about it, cause it will probably never be "fixed" cause there isn't a problem with it. just be glad there is a paint you can get again.
