Ragnarok Online [PC – Alpha / Beta]

Ragnarok Online [PC – Alpha / Beta]

Ragnarok Online is a MMORPG developed by GRAVITY and originally released in South Korea in 2001 for PC. While looking at some videos on Youtube, Sumikuroi noticed many differences in the alpha / beta footage:

  • Only 1 hair style
  • Different maps
  • No zoom
  • Different hud
  • Most the options ingame not working or disabled
  • Different skill tree and job change
  • Different marks in the ground when select for moving
  • Baphomet (Boss ingame) is doubled sized

Thanks to Sumikuroi for the contribution!

    We’re from the Ragnarok Online Preservation Project.

    I thought you might like to know a very fascinating fact. This video was originally played at the beginning of the Alpha but was disabled after players complained about having to wait. The video was encoded in RAD Game Tools as a BIK file.

    After reverse engineering the EXE of the file, we discovered that the code which was written to show this intro and the DLL it needs to do it (binkw32.dll) still are distributed to this day with Ragnarok clients, and that this code is normally never called. So, this feature has literally been carried forward from 2001 to 2022.
