RagnaCam Usage Tutorial

Sunday, January 20, 2008

RagnaCam is a utility I use to view maps and models available ingame. It's quite useful for flash, movie, and stillart imagery. Until very recently I never really bothered giving people the exact method how to find and install this utility but nowadays I don't really see the point of being secretive about it.

Here are the steps, it's not that hard.

1. Download RagnaCam at: EnderSoft

2. Download GRFTool at: SourceForge

3. Unzip the GRFTool and run executable.

3a. Open data.grf from your RO folder.

4. Click settings, tick "use original encoding for filenames".

5. Click extract, select C:\Program Files\Gravity\RagnarokOnline\

6. Wait for the extraction to complete. You need at least 3GB to get the whole data folder extracted completely.

7. Unzip RagnaCam and run the RagnaCamGUI

8. The maplist should be displayed now.

9. Pick a map and enjoy. Controls should be similar to Counterstrike and other FPS games.

All credit goes to Dave of EnderSoft for revising the exisisting RO Map Viewer into something easier to use. Do not repost this guide without my permission.

Actually, the newer version of RagCam supports reading directly from the GRF, so you don't really need an extra 3GB.

You can get it from me if you ask nice.
