Well to cut to the chase, I've noticed that several players I know have a corrupted client. Either one or more resource files inside of their client installation folders are differing in size and contents. This has caused them to experience bugs that I were unable to reproduce.
So to draw attention to the matter I'm gonna create a small guide and add reference.
[Insert header here]
These are my current resource files, as of VERSION 189. These files are updated from client installer version 174, which is the latest client installer. These should be the files you want to have on your client.
One way to recognize a corrupted client is to simply check the filesize of your resource files. Any digit that is different could mean that they aren't the same as what I have. How can we make sure that they are different, though? Well, you can perform a hash check on the file in question.
If you have 7zip installed you can right-click on a file and run a CRC-32 check. Alternatively you can download HashMyFiles to test files in batches. Download page can be found here.
These are the CRC-32 values of my files in hexadecimal format (make sure you aren't using decimal format):
You can compare these to the CRC-32 values you obtained from your files. A differing value means that the file is different or corrupted.
"So why is my client corrupted?"
Well, it's highly possible that you are using a more dated client. The last time you installed the client was a (very) long time ago, or you were using an older installation file that you saved.
"How do I fix my client?"
You could download individual resource files from a friend or anyone who can provide you the files you need. Make sure it has the correct CRC-32 values. Another way is to download the latest Dragon Nest installer from the main website here.
