I want to start by saying I want to avoid the intrusive gatehub if possible, I am in a foreign country and proving residence is task that involves translators for most English verification KYC processes. It is a last resort for me. I bought XRP in 2013 and stored my backups like this ; I have in keepass, on paper, and in a text file several backups like so : XRP address, balance is still there. A username, a password. This is not in the form of the secret key, it is a standard keepass generated password. I also have a 'ripple-wallet.txt' file, with a VERY long, strong password. It has well over 200 characters. Lastly I have a string that may be a secret key, it has my fake-password to start, the next characters after is 's' and it looks like a secret key format may be in there, but I do not know the length. The ripple desktop wallet asks for a wallet file, which I do not have, I do not believe there were any at the time I bought them. Just accounts and passwords or brain wallet type logins IIRC. I have spent a long time trying to find answers on how to recover the funds, but the best I found was a github 'minimalistic' client, which was very confusing and I could not get it to work. How does one go about recovering the funds?
