attempt to call a nil value on 2018 clients



When I open my newly hexed 2018 client, I'm getting the errors as shown in the images below.

First attempt details

Client version
2018-06-20eRagexeRE.exe downloaded from Nemo downloadable clients

Hexed using
4144's continuation of the Nemo client

What I think is wrong

I know that when you get a client and hex it, you need to get the corresponding data folder/System folder for that RO to make sure that it finds the data that it needs.

I highly suspect that my problem is caused by my client's data and System files which are for version 2014-02-05bRagexe.exe. I have a good feeling the data structures have changed in the course of almost five years.

  • Do you agree with my diagnosis? If so, where do I find the data/system files for more updated versions?
  • Are the data and System files something I'm supposed to extract from Full Clients itself?
  • Is it not hosted and available somewhere?








I tried:

  1. Downloading a full client 2018 (2018-08-13) to make sure my System and data files are updated
  2. My DATA.INI set up so that rdata.grf is given priority (=1), then data.grf comes next (=2).
  3. I avoided using my existing GRF, so that I am only using data from the full client.
  4. I made sure the data and System folders are untouched.
  5. Only the clientinfo.xml and sclientinfo.xml were modified in the data folder.
  6. The problem still exists.


I also tried using MathReaper's hexed client but it's still getting the same problems.

I solved the problem by starting from scratch:

1. Selecting a different RagexeRE client.
2. Re-hexing the said unpatched client.
3. Using an updated translation.

And it works. For details of my client configuration and context, see my post in rAthena.
