  1. it's a comment from this thread. " wariatu 10 points 6 days ago From what someone posted on discord: About the EU vs KR performance comparison, a lot of the lag comes from the way they handle translations. After seeing the translation files it's clear that KR uses hardcoded strings, while the EU client goes though a "filter" that maps the KR strings into EN strings. Even with a hashing function/table that will take a lot more CPU power than using simple english keys (KR symbols use up more bytes than simple english letters)." NCWest should know if that's true or not, it should be a simple yes or no answer from you guys whether it's true or not. if you guys don't even know how the game client you provide to the players functions, then I don't even know what to say... and if it is true (which i'm pretty sure it is), then I really hope that UE4 won't be doing the same kind of translation/localization because we'd all be waiting for nothing if that is the case.
  2. Resilience bug

    yeah I noticed this as well this bug was around before too and they fixed it, so seeing as they fixed it once already before hopefully they can do it again quickly lol
  3. I don't think the level 60 voucher gets used up until you leave the training room with that character, so you should be safe to try again. In the character creation there's an option to save an appearance, I recommend using that to save your appearances after you work hard on them. You can save an appearance and then create a character with it multiple times while making small modifications to the appearance and re-saving it + creating a new character with it over and over until you get it just perfect. Often the character will look slightly different in game compared to in the character creation screen, so it can take a bunch of trial and error before you get a character to look "just right". Good luck next time ^^
  4. damnnn I was really hoping that would fix it for you. I really wouldn't be surprised if it's some kind of installation error with it being installed in a non-default location. I think I heard of some other people having issues launching the game with the new launcher after they installed to a non-default location too. since you don't have the space on your C drive the only thing I can think of is you could try launching the game with bns buddy
  5. for some people the game used to have an issue where it'd cause the asmedia SATA controller driver to malfunction and disconnect drives, not sure if this still happens but it might be the issue you're experiencing. I replied to a reddit thread some time back so i'll just copy+paste from there "We found a workaround, discovered and provided by a player who is also experiencing the issue and had helped also quite a few players. You could find his workaround in this thread : This solution shows that the " Asmedia 106x SATA Controller " Driver is causing the crashes. With that said, you may want also try this workaround as a possible fix to your issue. To do this, you'll need to uninstall the driver of your PC " Asmedia 106x SATA Controller for Windows 7 32bit & 64bit / 8.1 64bit / 10 64bit" from your computer and see if you could run the game now as normal. For additional information, you may want to visit the forum link provided." If you do have that driver mentioned above, you can uninstall it without any issues. All it normally does is give you the ability to "eject" the hard drives connected to your sata ports in the same way as with a flash drive after plugging it into your computer.
  6. or awakened fellstrike / awakened raze I think some bracelet modifiers might also be bugged and not working correctly
  7. Show off your characters!!

    been awhile since I posted here
  8. Farewell Blade & Soul!

    breaking up with all of us on valentines day, jonathan you savage XD good luck man, miss you already!
  9. hey, I think I remember this being an issue before with gameguard too when it was used instead of xigncode. the problem is the asmedia sata 106x controller driver. you can remove the controller driver and all of the sata will still function fine, all the controller driver does is give you the ability to "eject" drives connected to the sata in the same way you would eject something connected via USB. honestly it's a pretty useless driver, there isn't very much situations where I can see someone wanting to use the eject function to disconnect their hard drives while their computer is running. it seems for some reason the game causes the sata controller driver to malfunction and "eject" drives without you telling it to. uninstalling the sata 106x controller driver *should* stop your issue from happening, good luck
  10. BnS Buddy after update

    If they're trying to kill the game, they're doing a good job at it.
  11. After Blizzcon - Thinking about coming back

    they aren't going to catch up to doing TT raid as a F2P while it's still the most endgame content unless they play the game as if they are working 2 full time jobs at the same time.
  12. After Blizzcon - Thinking about coming back

    1: the state is bad, games being managed badly, events always getting worse, incompetent support GM's 2: warden is OP. top 3 pve/pvp assuming average skill probably warden / gunner / maybe FM 3: hella p2w if you want to do any actually challenging endgame (TT raid or 6v6). Unless you consider it realistic to play the game like it's 2 full time jobs. 4: since you mention blizzcon - all 6 of the new games ncsoft has in development are mobile games. (Aion 2 and blade&soul 2 are two of them) :( it's a rough year for gamers everywhere.
  13. Treasure trove Opening 350 keys

    My guess is they lowered the rates of good crits after adding the "guaranteed bonus after X amount of keys" because of ncsoft "balancing logic". They never just add something without it coming at a cost in some way or another (usually the end result being worse).
  14. fps drops after restarting bns

    i've always had the same issue, through multiple windows installs on both windows 7 and windows 10. The game runs good after the computer has been restarted (most of the time, sometimes it'll still open with buggy/low fps and have to be restarted again) but yeah every time that I close the game and restart it, it runs much worse, so i'm forced to restart my computer every single time before I open BNS. edit: forgot to mention, disabling FTH never helped with this issue for me. Game still runs worse every time it's restarted without a full computer restart.
  15. Locked at 60 FPS

    regardless of your monitors refresh rate, having your game processing more frames will make it more responsive. for classes with a fast paced animation cancel combo it can be quite noticeable going from 60 fps to 100+ even if the monitors refresh rate is 60Hz. In that situation even if you can't see any difference due to the monitors limit, you can still really feel the difference in responsiveness. OP did state their monitor is 144Hz though.
