THE SEquel to LINEAGE a very popular MMORPG has now started open beta in KOREA. Yes thats right its a korean game like
GUIDE UPDATED JULY 25
GameMyth was but this time it can be changed to ENGLISH! YAY.
here's directions and shit.
WARNING: YOU NEED LOTS OF HD SPACE, LIKE 3 GIGS, DO NOT ATTEMPT IF YOUR COMPUTER IS TEH SUX
Welcome to version 2.1 of my How2 guide for getting Lineage2 up and running
Now covers all the way from Download and registration, through to login, creating characters and first steps in the game
-- DOWNLOADING THE CLIENT --
For downloading use this url:
7/20 - UPDATE - http://lineage2.cachenet.com/L2Arc_0715.exe
new version out! lets you skip patching!!
OLD LINK -http://lineage2.cachenet.com/L2_Arc.exe
Its about 1Gb on my hard drive, but the download can be pretty quick if you use a download manager. Such as www.flashget.com
-- INSTALLING THE CLIENT --
Once its downloaded, run the file to install it. It asks you for a directory, this is not the install directory! It just uses this place as a temp directory, all files are removed from this location after the install “proper” is complete. BOTTOM LEFT BUTTON IS "INSTALL"
The second directory it asks for is indeed where you want to install the game. Be aware that it will take over 2Gb of space when installed.
That’s over 3Gb of space you are going to need free before you start this process. Maybe I should have put this at the top
-- PATCHING THE CLIENT --
After it installs, it patches. This takes AGES…
I left it overnight and it was still doing it in the morning. Plan accordingly for this stage takes LONG…
-- REGISTRATION --
Now you can do this at anytime. Recommended points might be waiting for the 1Gb client to download, or during the patch process, as you will have plenty of thumb-twiddling time during those stages.
Go here to start the registration process:
First page click the radio button on the left, then hit the square button at the bottom of the page. You just agreed to let them deport you for using illegal Korean ID numbers, just kidding
Getting an ID number for the next stage: Either you can use ones people are posting or download a generator such as this one www.dreamzonehk.com/korenid.zip . Don’t copy the .dll to your system file until you have to. I have win2k and it said I would need to, but infact the program worked just fine without me doing anything, and id rather not copy into my system some file I have no idea about. Its up to you.
Second Page, first box put a name (use your own if you are stupid).
Second box put the first part of the Korean code, 3rd box (you guessed it) put the 2nd part of the Korean code
hit the square button at the bottom of the page.
If you go to a page with a cool looking guy on the right and a single button to press. Your ID number was rejected. Click the button and it will take you back to the previous page where you should try using a different ID number
When you progress properly, you will get a page with lots of text and 2 buttons on it. Press the lower button.
Your name and ID are entered already in the first 2 boxes, don’t touch them
Press the button next to the (blank for now) 3rd box
A pop-up will appear (turn off your pop-up stoppers if nothing appears to happen)
Here is where you enter the account name you want to use
Hint: NOTE DOWN WHAT YOU CHOOSE
Then press the larger button to the right
(I think it goes away and checks its unique)
If its ok, you will get a new third button. This is the OK button (bottom left).
Click it to proceed
Your chosen account name now appears below your ID number
Now the next section of the page, with 2 text boxes. Simply enter a password for your account (make one up), type the same thing in both boxes. It must be no less than 4 and no greater than 16 in length.
Hint: NOTE DOWN WHAT YOU CHOOSE
Next section deals with your email address. As soon as you click on the text box a popup will appear. There seems like 2 places to add addresses. I think the lower one is only to be used if you cant find your email provider in the pull-down list in the top line. I just used a hotmail account and so left the lower lines blank. It worked fine that way for me.
Back to the main form, the tick box is to say you want them to send you newsletters. Unless you like reading gibberish don’t click it.
Nearly there, geez this takes a while don’t it
The next section deals with account security. The pull down menus are questions and the text boxes where you must type answers. Pets name, Spot. That kind of deal.
I left the 1st questions at its default and typed 1234. The changed the 2nd question to the next one down the list and used 5678 as the answer. Worked fine, I think anything will.
The next section can be a bit confusing. The first 2 boxes you can ignore. Instead click on the button to the right of them. In the pop-up that appears paste this
NO MOTHA FUCKIN QUOTES THIS TIME
then choose one of the lines that appear below. I think its an address database or something. I choose one without a phone number, if they don’t have a phone they are unlikely to be playing L2 me thinks.
******* IMPORTANT IF YOU HAVE PROBLEMS AT THIS STEP**
USE 骯撩翕 instead of ¿À»ê
Back to the main form:
You just filled in the 3rd box, so its on to the 4th now. Type in 3 numbers.
The final 2 lines of boxes are phone numbers. Change the pull-downs to anything you want (it’s the area codes). Type in some made up numbers in the format xxx-xxxx in the other boxes
Now click the left hand button under the form to process the application
You should get a page full of text with your chosen account name somewhere in the middle if you do everything right.
-- STARTING THE GAME --
When you have an account and the game installed and patched, click the start button.
REFER HERE FOR CHANGING TO ENGLISH INFORMATION
The box in the centre of the screen is waiting for your account name (top box) and password (bottom box). Then press the left button (right button is exit). Don’t worry about the buttons in the bottom right corner atm.
If nothing happens after entering at this stage, its your firewall. The client wont let you alt+tab out or use the windows key. But (for example) if you have zone alarm pro, you need to get out to give the program permission to access the net and verify your account.
If you have no idea what I am talking about, just turn off your firewall before running the client, that will let you get past this stage.
The next box is a list of the servers. The second column (I believe) is availability. If it has 2 Chinese characters then you can go ahead and select that server, if it has 3 characters in that column don’t bother because it either means its full/down and will just chuck you back to the login stage.
-- CREATING CHARACTERS --
Assuming you chose your server successfully, you are now in the character selection screen. Its going to be empty if this is your first time playing. So click on the top button in the bottom left corner of the screen to create a character. Your attention should now be up at the top left of the screen. The blank text box is where you type your characters name (make one up). The slots below configure your character. Clicking the left and right arrows on each row toggle through the selections. Work your way down choosing what you want your character to be. Its pretty easy to work it out (just try). The first row is for race, then class, then sex, etc etc. When you are happy click the top button in the bottom left hand corner of the screen. If you get sent back to the start again and all your selections go blank, it means someone was already using the character name you chose. Stick in all your selection again, but this time try a different name.
Each time you successfully create a character you will be sent back to the main character selection screen, which kinda looks like the inside of a church. If you want to play one of these characters, click on it. It should walk forward (kinda like D2). Then click the third button down in the bottom right corner of the screen.
-- IN THE GAME AT LAST --
The game “really” loads!
The game chucks a load of text boxes at you as soon as you enter the world, ignore them for a sec.
THE VERY FIRST THING YOU WANT TO DO IS…
Click on the icon in the bottom right corner that looks like a hammer. In the window that pops up click on the button top-right. On the next screen choose the 3rd tab (the right one). Where it says Korean, click the arrow to the right of it. Yes, you guessed whats coming didn’t ya
Click on English!
Wahoo! Most of the game suddenly changes to English and becomes much easier to work out
Goodluck, and good hunting!
PS: PLAY IN SERVER 11
GOOD SITE WITH LOTS OF INFORMATION ON SKILLS AND HOW TO DO SHIT
CHECK THE FORUMS

If you have a major ISP like Comcast..etc dont bother trying, a lot of the major US ISPs are banned and will not be able to login.
The only way to get around this is use a full proxy (not just http one).
/edit, nevermind, just tried to login a bit ago and now I can. (I am on Comcast cable). I guess they unbanned the isps?
