2Moons Accounts Resurrected at GameHi

Dekaron at GameHi

Remember when 2Moons shutdown with no notice?

Well, it turns out that the accounts were saved. You can transfer the characters to new accounts at GameHi. So they apparently saved the database, and now Dekaron [and the other game] at GameHi, are Free to Play. Surprise Surprise. At the time that 2Moons was released, I understood that Dekaron – which was popular in Korea – was a subscription game, which is why Acclaim’s FTP version was IP checked for US only IP addresses.

Dekaron – Hints and Research

Elite Dekaron

Here’re a few things I’ve found out while playing Elite Dekaron.

The EXP factor varies from place to place. For example, in Frozen Forest lvl 40 it appears to be 60X, but in Heiharp lvl 25 it appears to be 40x. The DIL factor varies as well. To calculate the rate, watch the EXP and DIL drop for a monster and then do the math based on a Wiki like the 2Moons wiki which has a very nice Monster Detail section. Here’s the section for Heiharp.

Ho3K – Taking a Break

Heroes of Three Kingdoms

  • There are two currencies. Money and Funds. And due to the second problem, this is just too much of a hassle to mess with.
  • There is no good wiki. Oh they have a wiki. But it only has the bare minimum of content, and nothing to help you deal with the Two Currency problem.

Dekaron Evolution – Install Failure

Update: The Fix is to install to C:Evolution GamesDekaron Evolution rather than to C:Program Files. This means that you can manually update using the manual patch at: Recent Update

When installing the Client found here: http://evolutiongames.net/dekaron/

It said it needed the (dot)NET 3.5 support and the Microsoft page provided an installer for (dot)Net 4.0.

The system is Vista x86 SP1.

Run the Client

Ho3k – Mounted Combat

Mounted Combat

Mounted combat is available from level 30 in Heroes of Three Kingdoms. But the quest chain to achieve it is not well documented and is confusing. This is a guide to gaining Mounted Combat with a minimum of cost and headaches. I had to attempt it three times before I got it right and finally help from the forum got me across the last stumbling block. It cost me 3 Gold in Money to gain it rather than the usual 1 Gold, so I’m trying to save you the money.
