Try to use the new maps Nif_dun01 and Nif_dun02


Hello everyone, Hello Rathena Community.

Recently, maps nif_dun01 and nif_dun02 have been added to the KRO.

and I was particularly in love with them, because I really like the Nifheim theme...

When trying to add the these maps, I always encounter a Models error and right after this i receive one Gravity Error.


so I went to find the solution to this problem and try to solve it in all ways ...

I encountered the following problem: all Model files that are used on these maps have the RSM2 extension...

While doing some research...


I found that these files are only read by Clients 2020 +..

My server is 2019/09 and I definitely can't transfer my server to a client 2020+, due to the extreme amount of errors in the process...

Anyone, could tell me if there is a way to make these RSW2 files become RSW1 and work on conventional clients?

Note: Browedit cannot read these maps due to the same reason ...


The only way to open these maps was: remove all the Models in Grf Tool  - Flat Map... ->

The Map Preview om GRF Editor->



After >days< triyng: -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

with the most recents files with KRO - November 2020 - like i say above.. i'm try to implemented the maps NIF_DUN01 and NIF_DUN02.

I will tell step by step what I did to try to make it work..


to try to make it work I did the standard procedure..

(I use Hercules)

the MCHACHE files was generated ... and then placed in their respective folder \hercules\maps\pre-re or re\



after... the maps was add on \conf\map\maps.conf



after.. the maps was add on \Hercules\db\map_index



when tried open in game the >CLIENT CRASH<.



was identified above ... the maps use RSM2 files and this maybe cause the client crash..
after this i tried to convert all RSM2 files to RSM files.. and i did it..



files in GRF rsm2.jpg



files in GRF rsm.jpg



After this convert process i use the HEXADECIMAL EDITOR.. 


With him is possible to change the nif_dun01 or 02.RSW file without damaging it.


The hard job is: found all rsm2 files inside the codes and trade to rsm extension.

Changing the CODES [ 72 73 6D 32] to [ 72 73 6D 00]






AFTER finish this... i put the RSW files inside GRF and checked if everything was normal.


The Grf Read perfectly all files:


Files with RSM2 extension ->



Files with converted RSM files. work's perfectly->



AFTER doing all this steps i made one personal GRF.


- The maps NIF_DUN01 and NIF_DUN02 edited on Hexadecimal Editor  (rsm2 -> rsm)

- All models that are used by the New Nif maps... converted (rsm2 -> rsm)

- All textures used in the process.

- Link to Download GRF: https://www.4shared.com/file/mIGedibHea/nifgrf.html


This GRF was cited first inside the DATA.INI





After ALL this steps when tried to open MAPS in game the >CLIENT CRASH<




ALL THESE SAME STEPS WAS MADE BEFORE WITH MAP "ba_lost" which uses RSM2 files to.... and >WORKED<





I came to the conclusion that these MAPS are not yet released to us (Western) as of the current November 2020 date.

My client as mentioned in the post above is 2019-06-26. And I tried it with clients after July 2020, (When these maps arrived at KRO), and it didn't work to.


If anyone else wants to try or can help me with them I would be very grateful.


Basically everything I tried was cited in this post.

Hmmm, first of all, you can't convert a RSM2 file to RSM just by changing its extension. GRF Editor shows the model properly because it reads the file header and sees it as a RSM2 file regardless of the extension. You need to either actually downgrade the models or simply update your client to a more recent version. As for ba_lost working using this method, that is just because the client works the same; it reads the header of the file, not the extension.I don't know if 2019-06-26's client is able to read RSM2 files or not. If we assume it does, then your issue is with the RSW map format, you'd have to downgrade it (which is fairly straightforward to do).

Updating the client is the easier option either way though, and a long term one at that. You'll have to do it sooner or later and then it will just work out by itself:


(I need to update GRF Editor to read the newest RSW format in nif_dun02 map apparently... not that anything has really changed.)

Best of luck!

Hello friend Tokei , first of all thank you for helping me with this question.
So it means that my procedure is wrong.
Could you tell me how I can actually convert these files to RSM?
and which client are you using?
since I already tried with some 2020 clients even facing some errors in the process. the map did not open showing the same problem.
Thank you for your attention.
