Click on “Download Game Client”

This will bring you to the download link at its forum page: http://board.playtrickster.com/index.php?/topic/47-game-download/

 

Download the game and follow the instruction on how to install it in your computer.

 

 

How to install game on your computer:

 

1. When you download, you should get the file called Playtrickster_05282019.rar

2. Copy that file to your drive, C: or whatever drive you use on your computer

3. Then right-click on this file

4. Choose extract to folder

5. Open that folder, click on Splash.exe to launch

6. Click on Check File to update your game to the latest game patch

 

 

 

 

Tips:

1. On older computers, you may encounter problem when launching the game, such as seeing a box of gibberish popping up. If so, make sure you click “Run as Administrator” for the game.

 

Right click on Splash.exe -- > Properties -- > Compatibility -- > Run this program as an administrator

 

unknown.png

 

 

 

2. Please make sure you set your resolution to 1024x768 or lower.

If you set it to higher, you may not be able to launch your game, and may experience Exceptional Error.

 

 

 

 

For people who want to change their resolution later, here are links you can refer to:

Creating a game account

 

 

To do this, go back to the website (you should bookmark this site on your computer).

Click on “Sign Up”

 

unknown.png

 

 

You will reach the Register page.

 

unknown.png

 

unknown.png

 

 

Click “agree”

 

Complete the registration information.

 

unknown.png

 

 

Important tip:

 

1. Please use email that will work for you forever, i.e., you will not lose access to it at any time in the future. This is important to recover your game account in the future in case you forgot your username or password.

Do not use a shared email and do not share this email with anyone else to keep your game account secure.

This email must not have been used in game account registration before.

Only one email can be used for one game account.

 

2. Make username and passwords that are not too short or too long, the ideal length should be between 8 – 13 characters. Longer characters may still be acceptable but due to its length, the system may not recognise some of the end characters on it and thereby causing you difficulty to log in to the game later.

 

3. Secure Code = 4 digit number that you will use on website to access Auction House later.

 

 

 

After completing the registration form, click “Submit.”

Now your registration is complete.

 

unknown.png

 

 

 

Log in to your email to activate your game account.

 

 

unknown.png

 

unknown.png

 

 

Click on the link to activate your game account.

 

Tip: If you didn’t see this mail in your inbox, check your Spam folder or junk folder, or other folders in your email.

 

When you click on the link for activation, you will be brought to the website.

 

unknown.png

 

 

Close the chat box and try to log in to see if your game account were active or not.

 

 

unknown.png

 

 

If you are able to log in, then your account is active, and you can start playing the game.

Logging in to Game for the first time

 

 

Go to your Playtrickster folder on your computer (the game you downloaded), and click on Splash.exe inside the folder.

 

unknown.png

 

 

You can put a shortcut to this on your desktop or pin it to your taskbar for easy access in the future.

 

This screen will pop up:

 

unknown.png

 

 

Important tip:

Whenever you encounter problem with your game in the future, click on “Check Files” on this screen to update your game and fix any file inside it that may have become bugged or that may have been updated incompletely before.

Usually, your game will update itself automatically, but sometimes, a person’s installed anti-virus software may cause problem to this game, causing it to not running properly.

If you suspect your anti-virus software is causing problem, please exclude this game folder from scanning.

 

 

 

Once updating is finished, click “Game Start”.

Your login screen will look like this (image changes every month):

 

unknown.png

 

 

 

Log in to game by keying in your ID (i.e., username) and PW (i.e., password).

 

unknown.png

 

 

The first time that you open the game using this account, make sure to click on “Jewelia” to select the server.

 

Note: This function is a leftover from the official Trickster Online game when they used to have two servers to choose from, Jewelia and Fantasia. In rTO, there is only Jewelia.

 

 

unknown.png

 

 

Once you click on Jewelia, “Ruby Island” will appear on “Select Channel.”

 

Just click “Connect.”

 

The following screen will pop up:

 

unknown.png

 

 

This screen is where you set Lock Code for your game account.

 

Lock Code’s function is to secure your actions in game, such as when you want to use in-game bank, warehouse, drop items to the ground, selling items to NPC, trading with another player, etc.

 

Lock Code must be 4 – 6 digit.

 

You can set it to be the same as your Secure Code, or you can use different numbers.

 

Click on “I want to use Lock.”

 

unknown.png

 

 

Input Password = Lock Code numbers

 

Mail = This refers to email which is attached to this Lock Code and can be used in the future to recover your Lock code if you happened to forget your Lock Code.

 

This email can be the same as the email you use for game account, or it could be different.

 

Tip: If you worry you might forget this email, just use the same one you used for game account!

 

Click “OK” and voila! You are done setting up your in-game security.

 

unknown.png

 

 

Now you are ready to create your first char.

Very Important Links for you

 

 

Note:

This guide will not cover creation of character.

 

When official Trickster Online was still alive, there was a wiki that explains everything about the game.

 

However, this wiki has since been closed.

 

Now, there’s a mirror wiki site which you can use to refer things such as characters to create, quests to do in every town, steps to do boss hunt, etc.

 

unknown.png

 

The link is here: http://www.tricksterinfo.club//Bwiki/wiki.ggftw.com/trickster/Main_Page.html

 

 

Important:

If this link changes, please keep a look out for any announcement made on the forum board.

 

 

If you knew how to search web archive for information on Trickster Online, then you can use web archive.

For example, this is web archive link to some quests: https://web.archive.org/web/20150905072457/http://wiki.ggftw.com/trickster/Episode_0_Quests

 

 

unknown.png

 

 

 

 

Here is another wiki which you may want to refer to: https://oto.fandom.com/wiki/Our_Trickster_Online_Wiki?fbclid=IwAR2CN4LCcJsb9wpNQltJLp-SIb_ZMTiSIqYYmM4x3gqFR8zAVHShctctFmA

 

 

unknown.png

 

 

This wiki is created by our player and pet master, RedSonja.

This wiki includes information about Tartarus, which is a new map with new monsters and new bosses not included in the older Trickster wiki.

This wiki is in progress and RedSonja continually updates it.

Please use this wiki as your source of information as well.

Using the Website

 

 

Website link: https://playtrickster.com/index.php

 

 

I will describe here the important functions and features on the website that new players should know. There will be other features that I will not cover in this thread. Players are urged to explore the website for themselves for familiarisation purpose.

 

 

Reminder:

Please DO NOT log in to your website when you are playing on a public platform such as Internet Café or other shared platforms. That platform may save your username and password unknown to you and your game account security will be compromised.

 

 

 

Membership to the Website

 

unknown.png

 

 

Under your username, you will see the following:

“Status” = shows your membership status on the website

“Balance” = the amount of MS points you have on this account

 

Click on “Status,” and you will come to this page:

 

unknown.png

 

 

If you are a free user, which is the status default for everyone, only Free User will be bolded. If you are a Free User, please ignore the membership expiry date.

 

If you are a Member, both Member and Free User will be bolded. The membership expiry date will show the date when you will have to renew your membership again, or become a Free User if not renewed by that date.

 

If you are a Super Member, then Super Member, Member, and Free User will be bolded.

 

If you are a VIP, all will be bolded (see below).

 

unknown.png

 

 

As a Free User, you cannot use some of the Special Features of the website.

You cannot use item comp/decomp, pet comp, tempering, and mileage shop.

You can still use other functions such as Auction House (which is very important), pet hunter, etc.

 

To become a member on website, you must get mileage points, which is then used to subscribe. Subscription runs for one (1) month and then renewal is needed.

 

 

 

Note:

I have been informed that if you refreshed this page after you have subscribed, this will cause your subscribing action to be repeated, and will result in loss of your mileage points in the same amount of your earlier subscription.

Therefore, please DO NOT refresh your page when you are on this page after you have subscribed.

How to get mileage points:

1. If you have any MyShop-type items that you don’t want to keep, you can recycle them on website by clicking on the Recycle button (Recycling will be discussed further later).

 

unknown.png

 

 

 

Tip:

If an event gives MyShop boxes/items as reward, always do the event so that you can get items to recycle for mileage points.

 

 

2. You can donate to the game using real money.

1000 MS points = 1 Mileage point

 

 

3. You can transfer mileage points from an account that you have to another account which need the mileage point.

How to do this:

 

unknown.png

 

 

Manage Account -- > Transfer Mileage -- > Username of account to transfer to -- > Amount -- > Transfer

 

 

unknown.png

 

 

 

For more information on website membership and mileage, please click on this link: http://board.playtrickster.com/index.php?/topic/2379-membership-and-mileage-shop-guide/

 

This guide is rather old but it is still useful.

Further explanation on the other functions on Manage Account page

 

 

This is a very useful feature to help you manage your own account without having to refer to GM/Admin/Mods.

 

unknown.png

 

 

Let’s discuss each function briefly.

 

 

 

 

1. You can change your password

 

unknown.png

 

 

Important:

DO NOT change your password if you have a pet hunter currently ongoing in game. Make sure to take back your pet from pet hunting first before changing your password.

If you changed your password while your char’s pet is on a pet hunt, you will encounter Error 401 (link not found) when you want to recall back the pet afterwards.

2. You can recover your Secure Code

 

unknown.png

 

 

 

The recovered number will be sent to the email which you used to register this game account.

This is why it is very important that you use a working email to register your game account.

 

If you cannot access your email to retrieve the recovered number, we cannot help you because the email is your personal property and it is your responsibility to keep your email accessible, safe, and working. Recoverability of email is to be worked out between you and your email provider.

3. You can reset your Lock Code

 

unknown.png

 

Resetting means changing it to a new random number.

 

The new number will be sent to your game account email.

 

Use this function to change your Lock Code if you have totally forgotten your old Lock Code.

 

Please DO NOT use this function if you do not remember your game account email or have lost access to it.

 

If you just want to change your Lock Code to another number, you can do it in game by pressing O (options) -- > Game -- > Run Setting -- > Use Lock Code -- > Change.

 

 

unknown.png

 

 

 

Important:

For all the changes to take effect, please make sure you log off from game completely.

Launch a new game screen when you want to play after the changes.

4. You can move your char

 

unknown.png

 

 

 

If you found yourself unable to log in to your char in game maybe because it is located in a densely populated map, use this function to move that char.

A moved char will be transported to Blooming Cora.

When you log in to that char next time, you will find it in Blooming Cora.

5. You can change the position of your chars in their slots

 

unknown.png

 

 

New players may not know this but there are actually six (6) slots for chars in one account.

When you log in, you will see the first three slots: Slot 1, 2, 3.

But if you right-click on the Login button (see below) after keying in the ID & PW, you will go to the next page with Slot 4, 5, 6.

 

 

unknown.png

 

 

 

Using Manage Character Slot, you can switch your chars around, for example, Char #5 be moved to first page and become Char #1, etc.

 

Important:

The change is not immediate.

The website is behind the game for about 10 minutes.

Thus, be patient.

Once you make the change (click on Process), leave it be.

If you see the change is not yet made, be patient and wait.

It will change soon.

 

 

Note from my personal experience: I was using this function to move my chars around, but became impatient when I saw the changes were not made. So I started changing slots around, and things get messed up. Every time I logged in, the chars were in different positions. Finally, I just left everything overnight after I made one last change to the positions I really wanted. The next day, when I logged in, every chars were in the slots I wanted them to be. So please be patient with this function if you used it.

6. You can fix disconnection caused by your warehouse overload

 

 

unknown.png

 

 

Our warehouse has a problem of storage because of mixing items from the different servers (TH, JP, KR, eTO).

It seems that some items actually end up occupying more than 1 slot inside the warehouse, although it appears to be sitting only in 1 slot.

Therefore, the counting of items inside the warehouse can become inaccurate.

 

What may happen is that players may end up storing too many items inside the warehouse, and this will cause the game to disconnect whenever that char tries to open the warehouse.

 

This problem tends to happen when you have a lot of JP, KR, and TH items inside your warehouse. Thus, even if you have all 10 pages of warehouse filled with Store-more Permits, you may end up not being able to use all the slots.

 

When your warehouse is overloaded, you will auto-disconnected whenever you click to open the warehouse.

 

 

To solve this problem, log in to website -- > Manage Account -- > Warehouse Take Out -- > Choose char -- > State number of items to take out -- > Fix.

 

unknown.png

 

 

Items from warehouse will be taken out randomly.

Keep repeating this function until you are able to open the warehouse in game.

Afterwards, make sure not to put extra items into the warehouse because if you do, you may face the same problem again, and have to do the take out function again.

 

Important:

Make sure the char itself has enough empty spaces inside its item inventory to received items taken out from warehouse.

7. You can take out Tails & Ears you accidentally stored in bank in game

 

In official TO servers, ears and tails are class-specific. Each char can only wear tails belonging to its own type. For example, bunny can only wear bunny ears and tails.

 

unknown.png

 

 

Thus, ears and tails were not bankable in game.

 

In rTO, we broke this coding and allowed the different classes to wear any ears/tails they want. However, when players save these items in bank, they become invisible.

Therefore, please DO NOT save your ears & tails inside your bank in game.

But if you did make this mistake, please use Fix (Tail, Ear) Inventory Bug function to solve this issue.

 

 

unknown.png

 

 

unknown.png

 

 

Choose the char that put the ears/tails inside the bank -- > Move.

The ears/tails will move back to this char.

 

Tip:

If you want to give ears/tails to a different char in the same account, you have to do this in a roundabout way by setting up the item for sale in Auction House, get another char in a different account to buy it, then get that char to re-sell that item to the other char in the first account who will be using it.

8. Fix Error 60013

 

Error 60013 = you have log off from game or disconnected, but the system tells you the char is still in game, so now you cannot log back into game because your char is deemed to be still online.

 

unknown.png

 

 

 

Log onto your account on website -- > Manage Account -- > Fix 60013 -- > Fix.

 

This function will disconnect your char so that you can log back in to game properly.

9. Event

 

This is a VERY IMPORTANT feature on the website.

 

New players may not be aware of this feature.

Rewards are given for certain achievements that you have made in game, such as completing certain quests, or achieving certain levels.

To get your rewards, go to the event page on website.

 

 

There are two ways to do this:

 

By clicking on event -- > Go to event

 

unknown.png

 

 

 

Or

 

 

Click on “Events & Achievement” located at the bottom left-hand corner of the website home page.

 

unknown.png

 

 

 

 

Both actions will transfer you to the rewards page that looks like this:

 

unknown.png

 

 

 

As you can see from above, my char has completed some of the achievements but have not taken the rewards.

 

[Get] = achievement is completed, have not taken reward

X = have not completed the required achievement

Taken = achievement is completed, reward is taken

Not eligible = usually applicable to old chars that have completed the achievement BEFORE the specific reward was put in place.

10. Web Shop: Ordinary & Unusual Key / Expand slot helper

Updated on 2020-03-30 ~ aran

 

 

 

 

Web Shop: Ordinary & Unusual Key

unknown.png

 

 

 

If you clicked on “Ordinary & Unusual Key,” you will get to this page (see below):

 

 

unknown.png

 

 

 

 

Keys

Ordinary Key and Unusual Key are used to open locked boxes, which are items we used in previous events.

If you still have these locked boxes unopened, you can buy these keys to use to open them.

Unusual Keys give a better probability of getting rare items from the locked boxes.

Ordinary Keys give you higher probability to get common items from the locked boxes.

You can also buy these keys from MyShop in game: -- > Set & Special -- > Special Box -- > Last page

 

 

unknown.png

 

 

The difference between buying keys in game and on Web Shop:

In MyShop, you can only buy these keys by one unit per purchase (which is rather tedious if you want to buy many at once)

In Web Shop, you can specify how many units per purchase you want to buy these items (which is convenient if you want to buy many at once).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Repair Powder

You can buy Repair Powder from MyShop in game: -- > Use -- > Mofifiers.

 

unknown.png

 

 

The difference between buying repair powder in game and on Web Shop:

The quantity of item per purchase in MyShop is 5 units/2500 pts.

In Web Shop, you can specify any number of unitf of repair powder you want to buy at a price of 500 pts per unit. Thus, if you want to buy more than 5 or less than 5, it is more convenient to buy repair powder on the Web Shop.

 

 

 

 

 

Note:

You can gift these items to chars on you friend list by selecting their names on the Gift slot and click on the “Gift” button.

unknown.png

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Web Shop: Expand Slot Helper

unknown.png

 

 

If you clicked on “Expand slot helper,” you’ll get to the following page:

 

unknown.png

 

 

 

Expand slot helpers are items used in expansion to increase comp slots for equipment (we’ll talk about expansion later).

 

 

Super Special Akuaregia = Expander item that can be used to expand both legendary uniques AND other expandable items

 

Patron Marks of Hephaestus = Expander item to stop you from losing the equipment that you are expanding when your expansion failed

 

Azoto of Luck = Increases the probability of your expanding success very slightly*

 

Azoto of God = Increases the probability of your expanding success about 5% better than Azoto of Luck*

 

* I’m not sure of exact % ~ aran

 

 

 

These items are also on sale in MyShop in game under Use – Special:

 

 

unknown.png

 

 

The difference between buying expander items in game and on Web Shop:

In game, you can only buy based on per unit basis.

In Web Shop, you can specify any number of units you want to buy.

Therefore, if you want to buy many, it is more convenient to buy from Web Shop.

11. Switch Character Group

This function is NOT VALID anymore because you can use Manage Character Slot to change the positions of your char individually.

Please DO NOT use this function.

12. Enabling/disabling VIP

 

 

unknown.png

 

 

 

If you were a VIP member on website but you want to disable this function in game, you can do so by clicking on this button.

This was a request made by PVPers back when “V” was a visible letter above their heads when in game to designate that they were VIP players.

Now, the “V” has already been removed, thus this function is not particularly useful.

Note: If you disabled your VIP status, you will still lose its membership time count on website.
