And a long-due guide, I say! A couple of years ago I thought that Alicia could only run on Windows 7 Ultimate and Enterprise versions, because they have access to Language packs, and Korean is needed to be installed for Alicia Online to run. That was a mistake, fortunately, which some of my readers proved by leaving comments about being able to run it on other versions. I personally had no access to “lower” tiers of Windows, so I couldn’t see how it works, which is now fixed – here is a guide how I was able to run it on Windows 7 Professional. Should work for Home/Home Premium as well. Click previews to see bigger versions of screenshots. (more…)
The long-due post in a chain I began last year (wow, that sounds like really long ago!) and is finally going to get completed. This is translation of a preview of Alicia Online 2.0 aka 앨리샤 2.0 on a Korean gaming website GameMeca. The Part 1 you can read here, and there’s also another post about Alicia 2.0 Frontier test with lots of screenshots and info. The preview has lots of info and screenshots, and i did my best to translate it. It’s not a literal word-by-word translation, you see, as i had to use 3 different translation tools to get the best picture of what is it they’re writing about, but i’m positively sure i preserved most of the info. So, here it goes.
Just yesterday i made this post about Alicia 2.0 Frontier test with lots of screenshots and info, and here i am back with more stuff about Alicia 2.0 (앨리샤 2.0). I accidentally stumbled upon a great source of Alicia 2.0 info stashed on a great Korean gaming website GameMeca, and among other things, they wrote a preview for the new version of Alicia Online based on the Frontier test i mention above. The preview has lots of info and screenshots, and i did my best to translate it. It’s not a literal word-by-word translation, you see, as i had to use 3 different translation tools to get the best picture of what is it they’re writing about, but i’m positively sure i preserved most of the info. My own notes are in [brackets]. So, here it goes. (more…)
First of all, these screens belong to lovekimjy1, a Korean fan of Alicia Online, who participated in the “Frontier test” – the first time Alicia 2.0 was ever available to fans in late October. Unfortunately, i missed the whole thing and is forced to watch screenshots and videos made by other people like many of you have to. And Alicia Online’s English version is still haven’t even been mentioned anywhere, let alone released. We still do not know the release date of Japanese Alicia version, either. But these are sad matters, so let’s get back to something fun and take a look at all the new beautiful screenshots from Alicia 2.0 beta test! I tried my best to translate what lovekimjy1 said about each one of them.
Okay, first of all, don’t get your hopes too high, i don’t have a guide for you on how to register in the Japanese version of Alicia Online or even a tangible release date. But i was curious what the heck is taking those asians so long to launch the damn game, so i dig around and gathered some curious info about Alicia Online and its Japanese version. There IS a Japanese version, and it WILL be released at some point. By the way, Alicia Online’s name (at least, one of the names it has been called since 2009) in Japanese is this: “馬と私 の物語 アリシア” (something in the line of “Alicia: Story of My Horse”). So you can Google it too, might find something i missed. (more…)
To all Alicia Online fans out there! I’ve been watching status of Alicia Online for a few years now – there was post in 2010 and later another one in 2011, when i asked Alicia devs if they are going to release Alicia Online in English. Sometime ago i wrote them again. I told them that there is a community of fans outside of Korea, and we’ve been hoping for an English release for quite some time. Is there any hope for us? Is there anything that we can do to help NTreev enter Western market? So, here’s their answer to my message. (more…)

More Alicia Online videos ;) This video shows how to use horse toys in Alicia Online to play with your horse. I’m sure many of you are able to do it better than me, but still ;) I couldn’t find a video about this, only a piece of other video where the author showed horse feeding, tending and playing with a bow, but not with a carrot. If you just started playing and the toys are blocked (grayed out) for you, don’t worry, they will unlock after some time. I think it happens when your horse is happy enough (the top meter should be of some size and also pink, which means the horse is happy). (more…)
This video shows in-game tutorials for game controls in Alicia Online, the horse racing MMORPG we all love so much ;) They weren’t full-screen so i enlarged that part of the video so the keys pressed during the tutorials would be more clear to see.
Hello to all Alicia Online fans! I have started playing a new character and intent to post helpful stuff from now on for those who have just started playing.

Feel free to share your own information regarding quests in the comment section, I’m sure everyone will appreciate it! (more…)
Not a news about Alicia Online English release date, I’m afraid, but still a very interesting and unusual (to say the least) information i found while digging around Korean blogs. Hold your breath – Alicia Online must be getting quite popular in Korea, because they now got their own branded fast food. I don’t know if this is some kind of Korean McDonalds NTreev made a deal with or it’s a small network or even a single cafe, but i like the idea! And the design is as adorable as all the Alicia stuff usually is. (more…)
This is a 3rd port in the series of detailed explanation of how to get your hands on Alicia Online. The first was on how to register an account for Alicia Online and then the second onhow to download Alicia Online. Let’s assume you have already registered an account, downloaded and installed the game, now i will explain what you need to do in order to run it. If you’re going to do that win Windows 7 OS, you must either own an Ultimate or Enterprise version, because you will need to install Korean Language Pack. Other versions won’t let you install the language pack so Alicia won’t run. So far i haven’t heard of a successful attempt to run Alicia with Vistalizator or something like that, but i can’t verify that it’s 1000% impossible, because i own W7 Ultimate and can’t check for myself. If you were able to run Alicia under other versions of W7 OS, please let me know!
To all Alicia Online fans out there! I have been able to contact Alicia Online developers and asked them if there are any plans to bring Alicia Online to Western market and release an English version of the game. And i received an answer! There is a good news and a bad news for all of us. Read the rest of the post to learn more about what are the news about Alicia Online English release! Note that this post is never than the one previously called “current state of an English release” (i had to rename it in order for both posts to make sense). (more…)
