    @Diamondo25 MemberShop and MateMessage (aka MateMail) were both old parts of the KMS Cash Shop. I could never find any GMS packet in the client for either of these, but they do exist still in KMS clients.

    As for membershop, the real packet information that you would use in KMS clients should be correctly as:
    Mobile phone number - sPhoneNumber
    Name on mobile phone number customer name - sUserName
    Name on Social Security numbers - nPhoneCompany?
    Or company registration number, legal registration number - sConfirmCode?, sSSN.

    Also, they revamped the window after big-bang from the old one. So I guess they still use it ;P


    I never finished looking at it but I wonder if this has anything to do with ScriptMan's "MembershopAvatar", where it's a membershop version of our regular Stylist. Either way, all the functionality for these things isn't in GMS clients (however, interface urls in stringpools exist) :(

    and yes, ExceptionItemList is indeed for Pets.

    Also, are you saying that we can just create a whole new directory in our WZ's? Or is this just how we would setup/use the old Data.wz?

    Re: True "what came when in GMS"

    Going update the OP to include changes that are also listed on the 'public' what came when. This is to show even more clear what all changes are, and you don't have to swap between the two to see what changed.

    Also, I am a bit confused about critical hits. From what I see in v40 BETA (and 0.03 if that matters) is that there's already an effect named violet1 which I assume is the purple numbers since there's no 'miss' in it (unlike violet0). However, public what came when shows critical hit release at 0.08. Did they just had the effects in the data but unused, or did critical hits come much earlier?

    Anyway, added GMS v40 beta. Changed v0.03, v0.08, v0.37, v0.49, v0.56, v0.57, and v0.73. Also, corrected some stuff from @Eric's explanation and @Diamondo25 New additions are marked in red.

    Lastly, I will put back the spoilers when I am done with this. Furthermore, I have re-wrote everything, but that was done on the last edit already.

    You can unpack the WZ files (when you are using an older version of maple, they stopped around 117 iirc) to folders and use plain img files instead (in the format as the wz files, where the wz file is the main directory). When you've got a SSD, this might speed up loading the game a lot (as it doesn't need to decrypt the files). IIRC, there used to be a very old client that used the datafiles like this (but I guess they figured that patching wz files is easier/faster?). Anyway, no encryption is needed and every file can be replaced/patched easily.

    But they aren't encrypted in the first place? The only thing that is "encrypted" is the strings which are just xor'd against some key, and that is unrelated to whether you're loading a WZ file or loose img files.

    It's the packing that gives additional overhead.
    The 'encryption' is only applied when List.wz (and each element that is referred to in the file is using the xor key).

    Ehm, now I think of it, maybe we can tune each wz file by make it one big img file. I think that is possible...

    Re: True "what came when in GMS"

    Changed some old versions again, this time focused on the World Map. All the changes are in red.
    v0.79 has been added, but a lot will probably be moved to v0.75 once I checked the setup. The direct download leads to Japanese .wz files lol

    @sunnyboy
    No protection at 12 <

    v0.12
    - Introduction of ASProtect
    Are you sure this part is correct? I checked with RDG Packer Detector and even the first version (and GMS beta) is already packed with Asprotect. The rest is correct though. However, I see a small difference between GMS v40 beta and v0.03:



    Left GMS v40 and right v0.03. No idea how accurate RDG packer detector is, though.

    Seems KMS beta (155) and 1.2.1 are not protected, however.

    I think we argued about this one before. ITC is item trading center, I guess, that's the only thing that makes sense. As for NPT... national... player... trading.

    I'm so dumb, I mixed it all up.


    Version 1 (ASPack 2.2)
    Version 6 has nothing on my copy
    Version 8 - don't have setup anymore
    Version 12 to 38 (ASprotect and V12 is when gameguard was introduced)
    Version 39 to 54 (Y0da)
    Version 55 to current (Themida)

    - I don't remember when gameguard was removed and hackshield was implemented

    v40beta is that one that just doesn't fit anywhere

    I mixed up the packers and anti hack protection lol

    They're not compressed or packed in any way. A WZ file is just a lightweight directory structure with encoded pointers to the img blobs which are directly in the WZ file with zero compression or encryption applied to them. They can be memory mapped and used in place from the WZ file just as well as they can be when they are loose files. So the only reason loose img files could be faster than a wz file is if the code nexon has to load wz files sucks, which is entirely possible given they are Nexon.

    Updated for lower versions again.

    Seems at v0.28 Nexon started think of ways to get money, since v0.28 is 2x cards and v0.29 Gachapon.

    All changes are in red.

    Updated.

    This time aimed for scrolls. I thought v0.55 already had Chaos Scrolls (and clean) but apparently they got added in v0.56. #TheMoreYouKnow

    All changes are in red.

    Re: True "what came when in GMS"

    Found yesterday right after my update in #GMSDLReborn v0.23 GMS, didn't wanted to double post.

    Difference between 22 > 23 has been added to OP

    Pretty proud of this found since afaik Cody's birthday appearance was never archived with full frame animations, as well as Cake spawns for first birthday being documented besides where they were, but not 100% accurate coordination, etc.

    Thanks to @kingslime in finding fast the differences
