Title: How to Make a Failed RO PServer
Post by: crysiscore3 on Sep 22, 2011, 04:43 PM
How to make a failed RO PServer

Have you thought about making your own RO server, but dreaded that it becomes too popular and you have to take care of it constantly?
Never fear! I have decided to write a guide that ensures you will have great success at failure!

Step One:
Don't plan for it.

This is something best done on the fly. Overthinking is the biggest problem. Don't worry about all of the things your server needs to distinguish itself from others, or how to drive traffic. Things will work out. You just need your dreams and dedication.

Step Two:
Don't tell anyone about it.

Just quietly tell a few of your old RO buddies you still have on Skype that you're making a server. Then post it without ceremony in the new server section of RMS.
If you're a dedicated and friendly enough GM, people will come, and they'll stay too.

Step Three:
Don't bother making a decent website. RO is about the game!

When you look at the most popular sites, all of them have nice site design. It's professional in appearance, and unique. But it's a lot of work.

You don't want that. Instead, you want to use a free template. Don't even look for a nice one. Just randomly dowload the newest one off of some free template site. Then slap some random anime pictures on it. They don't even need to be Ro related. RO = anime and vice versa. Don't worry if the images don't fit the template, just crop them off, or better resize them - and pay no mind to aspect ratio.

Step Four:
Who needs a .com?

Not you. That's who. Why pay $8 for a domain when you can get a .tk for free? Or even better, a subdomain from weebly!

Step Four:
Who needs customs?

Customs ruin the game. Like Renewal. And Rebirth. I HATE change! So let's not change anything, and just leave it as Gravity intended it... in 2003. :)

Step Five:
Buy harmony before launch.

Why pay $400 for something you don't really need yet(or arguably ever)? Man, lots of the best sites have it. That encourages people to play. I can't count the number of times I've played on a server because of Harmony... Well, I'm sure someone has.

Step Six
Use cheap VPS

Because of the Harmony expense, you can't really afford a very good dedicated host... so, maybe go with a discount VPN. People are sure to donate enough to get the system upgraded :)

Step Seven:
Make all of your old friends GMs, and give them all @item.

What could possibly go wrong? This allows them to make events whenever they feel like it!

Step Eight
Selecting the client type.

What the heck is lua? I think XRay is just fine. No updates means no new bugs!

Step Nine
Splitting hairs

You could put up both a full client AND a patch client, but why do that? That's just double the headache. This way if someone already has Ragray, you can force them to re-download it for no reason. I'm sure they wouldn't just say "screw it" and leave.
Or possibly, if they're new to RO, or just haven't played in a while, who wants them? Noobs.

This one is a personal choice. Though I lean towards the full client only path.

Step Ten
Bringing it all together.

First, you need to download eAthena. While you're waiting, you should be able to do steps 1-7. Just a few short hours after your dream of running your own RO server, it's finally about to become a reality!

--------------------------
The Launch
--------------------------

Well, now that you've made of all the preperations for the last few hours, and you're finally ready to unveil your vision to the world. Get ready, things are about to get epic.


Step Eleven:
Spam

For some reason, no one seems to be joining your server. It's probably because you wanted to go low key. Well no more! Time to hit up other site's facebook pages and forums and tell everyone how your server is more awesome than the one they're playing.

Step Tweleve
Make insanely overpowered donation items, and make them very cheap.

You don't seem to have many players, and none of them are donating. So, give two or three of your favorite people some free +50 all stats wings, and them sell them for $5 to everyone else. That'll get the donations rolling!

Step Thirteen
Ban the people who play

Well, maybe the reason your community isn't growing is because the few people who actually play on your server are a bunch of cheaters, or jerks! Ban them. Make up silly rules that you don't post anywhere. Ask your cousin who only knows Python to mess with the client and make an "anti-hack" system.

Step Fourteen
Escalate the drama
When one of your scorned players inevitably comes to RMS to complain, call them names, mock them and proudly declare that you're better off without them and you hope they become a cancer on some other server.
Then, when other server owners question your conduct, flame them with double intensity. Accuse them of conspiring against you.

Step Fifteen
Rage quit the internet

No failed server is perfectly failed until the owner(now with a heavy victim complex) declares that the RO community is so vile, that it has forever ruined the internet for him/her.

Step Sixteen
Remorse

Realizing that you've over reacted, you apologize to everyone you've wronged. You reopen the server and unban your former players.

Step Seventeen
Acceptance
After all your hard work and effort, it seems to be the end of the road. There are no players, even your friends who are all GMs never even log on. You yourself haven't logged in for weeks, and the server bill is just about due.
You decide to close the server.
Somehow, at the end of it all, you don't regret it. It was fun in it's own way. And even if no one else remembers it, it will always hold a special place in your heart.

I like you are writing this as a warning to potential server owner.  It's not really a guide of worth trying so I'll just move this to server discussion.  Because if they didn't plan for it as said in step 1, they wouldn't look for a guide in the first place.

Hopefully those that try to make a server will see this and get a few not-to-do out of it. 

Except I want to say, who needs custom is fine for me.  iRo back in 2003 was one of the best time I had with RO.

Post by: Strudel on Sep 22, 2011, 07:58 PM
Actually, as much as it may be painful to say or hear, I hope that the 99% out there do follow this guide because that way there'll be tons of crap server off the net, less complaining players, and more filled servers, with which you can actually do something.

Plus wrapping it won't do anything - the smell still gets through :x

FUNNY STORY! :D

My science teacher learnt the hard way about odours and skunks. He found a dead skunk beside his driveway and left it there.

It rained.

The skunk stunk so bad, he bagged it up and... put it in the garage.

The next day, his garage WREAKED of decomposing skunk carcass. He took it out at the demand of his wife and stuck it beside his van for two hours, preparing to go for a long drive the following day.

No, the drive didn't wear the stench off the side of his van :x it stayed there for a week lol

Moral: You can package up rotting carcass / crap, but after a day, its smell breaks loose and you can't deny that it's still a piece of crap.

Great guide! The ending was spectacular and ties everything greatly together <3.

But anyways LOL, in all seriousness, I love reading this. New server owners should read this (BUT HOPEFULLY NOT IN THE WRONG WAY LOLLL) and learn a thing or two before starting their own servers... if they dare D<!
Some people may not download from eAthena--just tell their hosters to give them free uploads and edit everything for them before release if possible =D.

Step Four:
Who needs customs?

Customs ruin the game. Like Renewal. And Rebirth. I HATE change! So let's not change anything, and just leave it as Gravity intended it... in 2003. :)

When I'm looking for an RO server, it's because I want to play RO. If I didn't like the game enough "as is" I wouldn't be looking. Is RO perfect? No. Do you know enough about game engineering to actually improve it? Bloody unlikely.

Step Thirteen
Ban the people who play



Lol this happened with me, but not in the same extent of the text, my ban was "accusing the GM for be friends with someone without proof". No I wasn't accusing him to give items or wherever, my ban was silly like that.

People should be more mature, this server in question was a big one in the past, but now It's only 93 players on counting with the @autotrade, It's kinda sad, like a Pservers the GM's need to work with the players instead of mesuring who have the bigger e-penis.

Edit: Ah, sorry, just re-read your post on server reviews. I would tend to disagree on the Gamemaster corruption part (I believe we actually have a really strong and understanding team of GMs). I had checked the logs in the past and the GM you were referring to (I assume [GM] Vein, or Pi) hadn't actually given out items or buffed other players. If you have more specific information, please PM me. I do however agree with you about the elitist players, however, you will most likely encounter elitist jerks on any server.

One thing that always confused me about this post: Everything is written very sarcastically, meaning do means don't, but here, you state they should buy harmony but under the sarcasm that means they shouldn't buy harmony. Is there something wrong with harmony that I'm not aware of?

It basically means, you are stupid if you pay $400 for something you prolly won't even use anymore because your server will go down. Or rather said, you would be stupid if you buy something for a project where you even don't know if people will like it. (sorry for my bad english)
ElariaRO has a good slogan "from small beginnings come great things". I was totally against spending hundreds of dollars into our project from the very beginning - Why? Because even though you might believe your server will have success you never know it.
Now, that we know that our project is good we can buy stuff to improve it. (:

I hope I am allowed to write stuff like this here. If not I apologize~

step 18 - Ask your ragnarok server supplier how to design your website, code your games, implement donation system.
               You paid for their services after all, they should be able to help you as they are an expert in ragnarok.

step 19 - Buy a ragnarok server, you dun really have to bother where the server is located at, because in the end,
               You are the not one playing it, you are just making a ragnarok game to earn players cash.

step 20 - Dun backup any of the website coding, ragnarok client coding, why backup when you are not going to use the backup,
               You are editing the codes to improve them not to deprove them, its just a waste of time to backup those useless codes.

step 21 - Dun add in new items to your game, why add more items when ragnarok already have so many items.
               You might even break the gameplay balance and destroy everyone's fun.

step 22 - Dun customize your town area, why make it different, do you think your players will like it better
               than any of the original town area, If you are really that good, you should perhaps make your own game from the startup instead, lol.

step 23 - Dun buy help from scripters or graphics designers, why buy when you can edit your codes and design your own items for free?
               Do you think others know your game better than you do? If not, why buy their services.

step 24 - If your server dun have much players, keep on paying that subscriptions to host your game servers,
               the longer your server survives, the more players you will have.

know your server owner may not know how to take a screenshot.
on rathena, a person took a picture of their computer screen presumably using their phone. at the bottom of the picture was the 'PrtSc' button.

i think not knowing basic computer functionalities like taking a screenshot is a huge red flag and probably indicates the server will fail.
then again it baffles me how these people can figure out how to get all this stuff online when they don't know how to take a freaking screenshot?


idk im so triggered.
Title: Re: How to Make a Failed RO PServer

That's why we don't allow those "All inclusive" RO server package to post an advertisement on the paid section of this forum, even though it's not hard to find them. 

Too easy to create an RO server isn't a good thing.  Lately I found that a number of RO server/website under the same domain of one of the "all inclusive" RO server provider comes with a coin mining script.  Of course in that case RMS will hide all the listings and topics with the links to protect our users .  But when I send the server owner a notification so they can remove the script, many don't have a clue how to remove it or they would contact their host which would give them a run-around told them it is resolved when it is not.

This problem was brought up in the forum some time ago and it's still going on.  Feels like the host is taking advantage of these people that don't know what they are doing.

Just a rant.
