Default 'data.grf' download?

I've been wondering if you guys know any places where I could download just a data.grf file? Because I've been trying to download the client 2 times already (took me ~10 - 11 hours in total) and BOTH were corrupt. Without the additional BGMs and stuff maybe it would save me some time... Not to mention all the patching, urgh.

Or are there any fixes to that other then redownloading?

*stares at 3rd RO download, estimated time = 6 hours* Oh please, not again. .-.

I am right now, but I've yet to pass a 20kB/s speed with it.
*checks* It's at 0.9kB/s right now, yay? My download speed might be bad, but it's still better than this. x_x

I'll wait for more seeds/peers (whatever affects your download speed, I'm a torrent nub) to appear, but so far it's sloooow.

I'd recommend our mirror, assuming you haven't tried it yet, but right now it's pretty busy.

I might suggest the incremental download here:

http://downloads.irowiki.org/ragnaro...s/incremental/

You might have better luck getting it bit by bit... then you need something like 7zip or winrar to properly open it.

Update: Downloaded RO for a 3rd time from MMOSite, was getting great download speeds, but the installer, specifically that darn data.grf is again corrupt. >.<

@Resplendent: I've tried it, but it's slow as well, I can get up to 400kB/s when downloading, but this gives me max 100? and lower.

@Bluedreams: The download here is also slow as hell, but I'll try that. Maybe I can get to play RO sometime this week if I do...

Thanks for help guys. Guess I'll just try downloading it again and again from various mirrors and hope it will work. ._.

I remember a problem with corrupt data.grf..
Don't install RO directly from a ZIP directory, you have to extract it first.


Also, i just noticed iRO added this!
Code:
MD5 hash Ragnarok ver 11.3 client. =  94ba8bdac5cf17b3f3b65b28160a9523249ea674
Here, check the hash and then you can see if it is a corrupt file or not installing correctly.

-Edit-
Oh yeh I forgot to add, download accelerator/resuming programs can add blank spaces at the ends of the code, and can cause corrupt data.grf. So try avoiding them if you can...

Gravity's suggestion once was to make sure you remove the old version (with Start>Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs) and download from a new site and reinstall. So give that a try too.
