Poseidon is a counter-measure for HackShield.

With Poseidon, original game client (with HackShield) connected to Poseidon server provides data for OpenKore connected to real game server.


Ragnarok Client (Ragexe)

  1. Extract 'clientinfo.xml' from you ragnarok client data files (use GRFTool [1]), rename it to 'poseidon.xml' and place in 'data' directory.
  2. Open it and change 'address' to your Poseidon server address ('' or 'localhost' for same computer). Change 'port' to 6900. (These magic numbers are constants from 'src/Poseidon/poseidon.pl' source.) Change 'display' to anything you want to distinguish between Poseidon connection and your original.

Example of edited clientinfo:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="euc-kr" ?>



Make sure your server connection settings have 'gameGuard <number>'.


  1. Start 'start-poseidon.exe' or 'src/Poseidon/poseidon.pl', wait for message 'Poseidon initialized'.
  2. Start 'ragexe 1rag1 /account:poseidon.xml'.
  3. Select Poseidon service (if prompted), input any login and password, select any character.
  4. You should appear in Novice Training Center and be able to see and talk with NPC (you will not be able to walk or do anything other than talking with NPC).
  5. Start OpenKore.

Advanced configuration

Poseidon server

Constants in poseidon.pl:

Host/port where ragnarok client will connect (Ragexe)
Host/port where poseidon clients will connect (OpenKore)

Poseidon client (OpenKore)

Options in config.txt:

poseidonServer, poseidonPort
Host/port of Poseidon server (QUERY_SERVER connection is Poseidon)


  • You can use one Poseidon for many bots, but GMs can possibly detect that.
  • If game client protection detects OpenKore binaries, run Poseidon without binaries (install Perl) or on another (maybe virtual) machine.
