Guide: Client Downloads

Recommended Posts

Introduction

This guide helps you set up and configure the Conquer Online game client to connect to a private server. To get started, download a specific patch for the game below. If you're downloading a open source server project, match sure to match up the patch numbers correctly. If the patch doesn't exist in the list below, download a lower patched client and patch upwards using the provided patch archive. After you finish downloading the client, decompress it using 7-Zip

Configure

Download the ConquerLoader launcher by Nullable and extract its contents to the client's directory. Make sure ConquerLoader.exe is in the same directory as Conquer.exe. It's common that anti-virus programs will incorrectly flag the launcher as a virus, so you may need to whitelist the executable. This is because the launcher uses code injection to redirect traffic to your private server. To configure its location, open LoaderSet.ini in Notepad and edit the IPAddress field. Some clients crash when using an internal or loopback IP address, so you may need to use your public IP address and set up port forwarding.

Older clients may not encrypt Server.dat, a file in the same directory as Conquer.exe. If the file can be opened in Notepad, then you may edit the file rather than using ConquerLoader.exe. Here's an example edit for Server.dat on patch 4294 (below). Loopback IP addresses may not work depending on the patch. To bypass the "Run play.exe" error when running Conquer.exe directly, start the executable using "blacknull" as a command-line argument. You can provide command-line arguments using shortcuts or cmd.

Warning

Some clients around patch 5002-5017 state that they contain a virus. They do not, this is a false positive. Do not start clients using start.exe on patches around 5022-5095. An antivirus program was added to the client that crashes Windows Vista and higher. Always run the clients using Conquer.exe or the provided launcher to avoid these issues.

Common Error Messages

"Server maintenance. Please try again later!"
Could not connect to the account server. If local, check that the internal IP address is correct. If remote, check your firewall and port forwarding settings. Restart the client if you change server.dat or the loader's IP address. You can check port forwarding at this website.

"Connecting to the account server"
If the client hangs here, then the MsgAccount packet isn't being handled correctly and the client is still waiting on a response.

"Failed to connect to the game server. Please try again later."
Check that your game server's port is being forwarded correctly using this website. If another player is getting this error and you aren't on your local box, then check that the IP address you send using MsgConnectEx is an external IP address and (again) that your port is being forwarded correctly.
