passwords are encrypted with 'crypt', it uses DES i think and it's salted.
Yep, the traditional DES-based scheme of crypt(3) uses a very small salt (12 bits represented by 2 characters). Fun fact: Ryzom's code include implementations of crypt(3) and MD5 (md5 isn't used for game passwords).
Just a note for all the people who thought it's hard to retrieve a password hashed in such a way: https://twitter.com/hashcat/status/160488271267364864
