Client-side Data Files

Recommended Posts

Would it be possible to take the latest set of data files and treat them like the SVN? It's very difficult to find complete and accurate data files expecially with all the different versions of RO out there. I suggest you add it to the svn as its own section and then removed anything from the files that doesn't realate to rAthena such as other versions of skill names... It wouldn't be all that big for the basic files, but it would make an accessable area for all to go. I give much credit to the few people who are currently trying to keep them up to date, but with so many versions, who really knows which one is the most accurate. We need one specific to rAthena and it would be something that nobody else is doing YET! Thanks.

Several developers and other members have suggested and want to help with this too!

We are still deciding on some back-end stuff (like how to structure the repository), but right now it looks like:

I have found numberous errors in the data files that could have been changed or fixed over the years. However, everytime they update the data files they never seem to fix stuff. Adding that here would allow us to have a specific rAthena skill names/discriptions and then also fix errors that are found. It would give us a method to actually advance in the future. I would be willing to assist with that project. The GIT is a nice repository, but how often is it updated and by who? Who do you report errors found with data files too? Thanks for your reply.

as you noticed right now

the only person who is updating @ clientside is Waeyan-Diffteam

and his doing lots of lub and lua updates/translation

translation pack "/data/" is outdated

thats why lots of people are getting crappy error

ya ill have to agree with person, this issue has to be pushed. the development of rathena is a beautiful thing it just needs to be 100% on both ends of the spectrum to be a complete work. we should find a development team for this purpose.

So much goes into making the server files acurate, but trying to find working data files is a nightmare. When we do they are riddled with mistakes.
