Ok this goes for those of you who live in places like Europe, some parts of asia ,antartica and south america.
First of all what you need to keep in mind is that Vindictus is distributed by Nexon America , however Nexon does not own the full rights of the game since the game was created and designed by south koreans and was first known as Mabinogi Heroes , the contract between Nexon and the developers says the game can only be played in North America ( Canada and USA ) , Oceania (idk why ) and south korea ofc . Players from other regions will be simply ip blocked .
Fortunately there is this program called Proxifier , the program works with existing american IPs and fools the Hackshield from Vindictus making it think you live in places like Florida or Texas when you are probably living next to a polar bear`s cave . Pretty cool isn`t it ? .
If you are interested in playing the game and you do not live in the mentioned places then you must read this and follow my instructions .
FIrst of all you need to download and install the game.
Here is the link for download : http://vindictus.nexon.net/Support/Client.aspx
And here you can create your account : http://passport.nexon.net/Registration/Signup.aspx?nexonTheme=Vindictus
Now go here : http://www.proxifier.com/distr/ProxifierSetup.exe
That`s the link to the program`s setup , install it .
Now once you have it installed you`ll also need this : REY1P-89OAS-A8M5T-74QR1-MN2EE
That`s the key to get the premium version so you dont get sticked to the 3 day trial version .
CONFIGURATE YOUR PROXIFIER .
1. Open the proxifier .
2. Search for the "Proxification Rules " option ( it`s bellow the edit button in your menu bar ).
3. A window will pop out , you`ll notice two check circle options under the name of "Process all except the following+manually proxified" and "Process only the following + manually proxified " ; we click on the last option . Bellow in that window we`ll notice an "ADD" button ; we click on it .
4. Another window will pop out named "Edit Proxification Rules" .Right here we`ll notice a label that says "Rule Name " right next to it we`ll see a text box , here you type however you want to call your Rule Name ( i typed Vindictus since that`s the application we want to run) . Bellow Rule Name we`ll also notice 3 list boxes named "Applications" , "IP Ranges" and "Port Ranges" ; we`ll only work "Applications" so you can forget about the other two . Right next to " Applications" there is an "Add" button , click on it.
5. Your explorer window will pop out this time . Here you`ll search for vindictus.exe application , you can just type it on your "Name" bar then we click "Open".
6. You`ll be taken back to the Edit Proxification Rules window where you`ll see that the vindictus.exe application has been added to your "Applications" list box . Don`t rush it , we need another program to be added aswell , so we click on the "add" button again . Our explorer window will pop out again too , this time we`ll type the following name on your Name bar : nmservice.exe . And we click on "open" . Having done this you`ll be taken back to the previus window and you`ll see both vindictus.exe and nmservice.exe have been added to the "applications" list box . Click OK , we are almost done .
7. You`ll be taken back to the Proxification Rules window . Here you`ll notice the Rule Name domain has been filled with the name you typed on it ( Viindictus ) aswell as the applications you included inside that Rule Name (vindictus.exe and nmservice.exe) . There is a check box next to your Vindictus rule name , it should be checked but if it`s not then check it . Having done this we click on OK.
8. There you are , you have succesfully configurated your proxifier . If you need more guidance through the configuration part go here : http://www.taringa.net/posts/juegos/7933790/Como-usar-proxifier-en-Vindictus-Latino-Hispano.html
9. That page is in spanish but i recommend you to look at the pics only follow them step by step . everything is there so good luck .
HOW TO GET AN AMERICAN IP .
0 . We go to facebook, search for Brad Anderson . we paste the link to your proxifier option " WHo do you want to steal the ip from " . We click OK and proxifier will do the rest ; you are ready to play . xD!
1. Ok ok let`s forget the jokes , you still need an American or canadian ip to get in the game , and we`ll use proxifier to make Vindictus hackshield think you live in USA . Specifically we need IP`s type SOCKS 5 .
2. First go here :http://sockslist.net/list/proxy-socks-5-list/
3. Right there you`ll notice american and canadian IPs type 5 and type 4/5. As i said previusly we`ll only focus our attention on the ones that say "Type 5" .
4. So let`s say i picked an IP address named : 188.8.131.52 with port number :27977
5. We have to verify that the ip actually works . So we head to the "Check" domain right next to the "Checked(ago) domain) . We click on "check" .
6. A new window will open . You`ll notice a small blue bar loading . Now you take this in consideration , if the ip indeed works you`ll see something like this : 184.108.40.206:27977 ≈ Socks ver. 5 ; if it doesnt work you`ll notice a red DOES NOT WORK message .
7. Now you`ll need to keep this in mind . Let`s say the blue bar loaded succesfully but it took a while for it to fully load , then that`s not a good choice . The IPs you want will have blue bars loaded in 4 seconds or less . If you notice the loading goes beyond 6 -7-8 seconds then you move to the next IP listed . Remember "blue bar loading in 4 or less seconds = good IP" .
8. Now assuming my IP indeed works and and the blue bar in the "Check" option loaded in 3 or less seconds then it`s time to add it to my proxifier . We look for the proxifier icon on your deskop and open it .
9. We search for the "Proxy Settings" icon . THis will take you to another window where you`ll see a list box where you are suppoused to see the IPs you are working with , since you have none it`s going to be empty . Next to the box there is an "ADD" button , left click on it .
10. A new window will pop out here you`ll type the IP addrees ( e.g :220.127.116.11 ) and the Port Number (e.g : 27977) . Then you`ll specify the protcol of the IP you just picked which happens to be SOCKS 5 , so we check the SOCKS 5 option. Finally we click OK . You`ll notice the empty list box is now filled with the IP you picked steps ago and you`ll see a check box next to it ; for the moment uncheck the IP i`ll tell you why later on .
11. Now we close the program and by closing i mean close the entire application, not just the window .
REPLACE THE HACKSHIELD
1. Whith newer patches Nexon made the Hackshield able to detect Proxifier and block it aswell , that`s why we`ll need to replace the current Hackshield version for an older one .
2. First we go here and download the file : http://www.2shared.com/file/j-bcOx-5/HShield.html
3. As i said the folder we just downloaded contains an older version of the hackshield which does nto detect Proxifier .
4. Now head to you Vindictus folder which by default should be located on C:
5. We go here C:/Nexon/Vindictus/en-US
6. There we`ll search for the folder named as HShield , make a copy of it just in case and put it in a safe place . Now delete the original HShield folder . Right after that we take the HShield folder we downloaded steps ago and we put it instead of the original folder . ( Remember , first you delete the original HShield folder and then you paste the older version HShield .)
7. We are done replacing Hackshield .
HOW TO PLAY THE GAME
1. First of all search for the Vindictus icon located on your deskop and delete it or take it somewhere else .
2. Now head back to C:/Nexon/Vindictus/en-US and search for the Vindictus launcher icon , it`s the same as the one you deleted , now create a deskop shortcut .
3. Open the game .
4. It will load and take you to a screen where you`ll see a viking boat sailing towards the horizon . You`ll also notice the START GAME option . Don`t click on it just yet .
5. Instead you`ll minimize the game .
6. Now you`ll open Proxifier ( remember it has to be closed at the time double click on the launcher )
7. Go to Proxy Settings and you`ll see the unchecked IP you picked previusly, now you check it , click OK .
8. Dont close proxifier , dont even close the window . Head back to the game now you click START GAME .
9. If you did exactly what i told you to do then you should have no problem fooling hackshield and entering the game .
10. Now this step is optional . Some ppl advise to minimize the game and UNcheck the IP that helped you bypass the hackshield , it will not disconnect you from the game ...only if you close Proxifier will you get disconnected .
SOME HELPFULL TIPS YOU SHOUL KNOW
1. The fake IPs don`t last forever , eventually they will go down . That`s why we`ll need to look for new IPs evrytime we want to get into the game . Over time you`ll gain exprience and find working IPs faster . So after a while you`ll have to remove previous IPs cuz the will no longer work after a certain time ( generally after 24 hrs )
2. All fake IPs are unstabble , which means even if you bypassed the HackShield there is a chance you`ll get disconnected from the server after a couple of missons . If so you can attemp to re enter the game using the same IP and if it fails to connect then you`ll have to find a new IP . I know it looks tiresome but overtime searching for working IPs will not be that hard .
3. You`ll need a nice pc to play the game since it has high quality graphics . And btw i play on EAST servers even though i could try WEST servers .
