Creative Editing: Simplified Effects (Wiz)
« on: Jul 08, 2009, 12:26 pm »
Ever wanted a less complex version of Storm Gust where you can actually see something instead of just a white screen. Ever wanted to prevent your screen from shaking in the presence of Meteor Storm and Lord of Vermillion. Doing them all without having to completely turn off /effect and risking not being able to see Safety Wall, Pneuma, enemy stalker's foot prints, etc. Simplified effects also helps your computer to run smoother especially when there's lots of skill spamming and effects going on especially during an intense WOE.


1. Download and install the necessary programs below:

Download Free RAR Extract Frog


2. Download the simplified effects from any of the followings:

uploading.com (Mirror 1)
Rapidshare (Mirror 2)





Storm Gust
stormgust.str
storm gust.str
storm_min.str
0storm.bmp

Meteor Storm
meteor1.str
meteor2.str
meteor3.str
meteor4.str
0lordbl.bmp

Lord of Vermillion
lord.str
0lordbl.bmp
0lordst.bmp


3. IMPORTANT: Make sure that the data folder is in the same directory as your RO
Create the following folder:
C:\Gravity\RO\data\texture\effect

4. Copy the extracted files and paste them in the newly created folder.

5. FINITO! Just load RO and enjoy the simplified effects for Storm Gust, Meteor Storm and Lord of Vermillion. Please note that these changes will affect your screen only and other players will not be affected by them.

Pretty nice and all, but don't you think you edited out a bit too much on the storm gust?

I think that is just an example. I see that all replacement effects are used ingame so I suppose you could extract some other from client and replace.

A Poem of Bragi
Acid Demonstration
Fury
Heaven's Drive
Others who make the screen flicker
Links (in character)
Assumption (in character)

Grateful, sorry for my bad english.

Simply amazing. This is very neat. Though I wonder, If this could edit out Champ's Fury skill? It's really annoying if people spam it.  :(

No promises. Let me see what I can do about that "Fury".

But I do have an anti shake from Hammer Fall; a Blacksmith skill.

Is it possible that you can upload a file that only stop the shaking of the screen and all other effects stay the same?
Oh can you simplify jupiter thunder? maybe make a smaller ball of thunder so that you can still see your health bar while being jupiter thundered, quite annoying not to be able to see your health bar. Is there like a guide on how you simplify these effects?

Keep up the good work =)

Awesome. Helped me a lot to kill those annoying SG spammers  >:(

Loljk.

It really works, but you should fix something. Just a typo
Create the following folder:
C:\Gravity\RO\data\texture\effects

If i'm not wrong, the folder's name its "effect", not effects.

Good luck, and keep writing guides like this. I just love them :D

Oh, and try to add a mediafire mirror. Modem users aren't able to download from rapidshare or uploading.com. at least from where i live D:
