Tips&Tricks: How to run Alicia Online – Step-by-Step Walkthrough

Tips&Tricks: How to run Alicia Online – Step-by-Step WalkthroughThis is a 4rd post in the series of detailed explanation of how to get your hands on Alicia Online. The previous posts were on how to register an account for Alicia Online, then how to download Alicia Online and finally, how to prepare your system to run Alicia Online and what to do in case it won’t work. I assume you have read all of the previous posts before proceeding to this one or asking any questions. If something doesn’t works, check the comments on all of these posts, maybe your problems was already encountered by someone else and we found a solution for it. If you want to know how to run Alicia Online, keep reading this post! :)

After you have installed the game you press Alicia Online shortcut and it opens a browser window with AO website. You have to login first and then press the big “Game Start” button. Note, that the browser opened will be your default browser, but you need Internet Explorer – so if it’s not your default one (most probably not), open the same page in a new IE window or it will NOT work.

Internet Explorer is required because Ntreev made it so the browser installs some plug-in to initiate the game’s client startup.

After you pressed the button Windows might ask if you want to let GametreeLauncher by NtreevSoft Co., Ltd make some changes to your computer – if it will ask or not, depends on your system’s security settings. Answer “yes”.
You will be taken to the following page:

The first (topmost) button will take you back to Alicia website, the second button will attempt to run the script to initiate Alicia startup process again. As you are being taken on this page, you don’t have to press anything right away, because the script was already initiated before you have been forwarded to the page.

If nothing happens for a minute or two, don’t worry, because Gametree launcher is a slowpoke and may take a while to load. Only if a couple of minutes passed and nothing happened, press the second button. If you try to run a copy of Gametree launcher and there is already a copy running, you will get this error:

Check your process list (from ctrl+alt+del menu) if the launcher is there but not responding and shut it down before trying again.

If it finally works, you will see either one of these windows:

It doesn’t really matters, which one, because it’s the same good old Gametree Launcher you were waiting to start. It just displays different pictures. I’m too lazy to type in all the Korean writing to translate them, but you don’t need to check any of the boxes for it to run. The launcher will check if there are any upgrades to the files you have installed and download them if needed:

After that you will see Alicia Online startup logo and HackShield window at the same time:

HackShield runs every time you run Alicia, if will check its own integrity and then proceed with the launch.

You will see another window:

At this step Alicia Online is checking it’s integrity too and loading files to finally start the game.

If something is wrong, you will get an error window. In this case, check this post – How to prepare your system to run Alicia Online – Or What to do if Alicia Won’t work – Step-by-Step Walkthrough

If the game is starting, you will see this screen:

    I just got my game and The two bars (yellow and orange) look like their loading something… but never seem to fill up, then when I go to start the game it just takes forever and nothing happens

    • Elthar

      what exactly do you mean by “got my game” – you downloaded the web installer and it is trying to install the game? if it fails to download something in that mode, you should download the full client, not the web downloader

      • Ash

        like I downloaded the game and all i get is the loading box and eventually it goes away and I get a smaller box that just says “Assembly” and it stays like that, no actual game no matter how long I wait (btw thanks for responding

        • Elthar

          “downloaded the game” -> could be done by two different ways with different problems and fixes. but if you must insist on a vague answer, okay then…

          the window you see is the game’s downloader/updater. obviously, it is stuck on some file it cannot download or install.

          if you downloaded the full client (600+ mb .exe file), installed it and now it’s stuck at the updating, some file must have been corrupted on your HD and you need to reinstall it. if it keeps failing, the file you downloaded might have been corrupted and is not installing properly, so you would need to redownload and reinstall it.

          if you downloaded the web installer (a small file about 10 mb or something), then it fails to download the full game and you need to download the full client manually.

          • Ash

            I downloaded from the website.. I could try to reinstall it. Sorry for not completely understanding what your asking. Its just frustrating to buy a game and have it not work

  • Mercy

    I have played this game a million times without issue, but lately it has been giving me the same problem repeatedly and I have no idea why. I log in, start game, begin as usual and it takes forever to load. On the chance that it does load, it gets to the blue screen and the hack shield finishes. However, instead of it going into the big loading screen, I get an “error flag” followed by the same message. Sometimes it will let me play, other times all I get is this message. Help?

    • Elthar

      does it ever shows you any other error messages, like “error 0xLots-of-numbers-going-here”?
      you could have installed some software that conflicts with hackshield or some new settings, try to determine what is different in your system between times when Alicia runs fine and between those times when it won’t run.

    I got this after trying to launch the game. I THINK I installed the script correctly for chrome, but I’m not entirely sure. It doesn’t prompt me to install it anymore whenever I click start.
