  1. 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
  2. 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.
  3. or awakened fellstrike / awakened raze I think some bracelet modifiers might also be bugged and not working correctly
  4. Show off your characters!!

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

    breaking up with all of us on valentines day, jonathan you savage XD good luck man, miss you already!
  6. 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
  7. BnS Buddy after update

    If they're trying to kill the game, they're doing a good job at it.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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).
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. KFM Bug not in "Known Issues"

    to add to the list of kfm bugs: the visual dragon effect on aransu 6+ gauntlets will disappear off of the right hand gauntlet and it'll look the same as a stage 3 aransu effect (only on the right hand) in these situations: entering/exiting a dialogue screen entering a new zone (with or without a loading screen) anything with a loading screen effect is always bugged upon first logging into the game re-equiping the weapon or changing costume will cause the effect to appear again. pretty harmless bug I guess but for someone with OCD it's frustrating as hell.
  14. KFM

    well, I heard from someone that on the KR servers the modifiers are still 270% cyclone on raven 9 and 280% on dragon bracelet. so idk man. looks like they are what they should be. is it just that the fire modifiers got a small buff?
  15. KFM

    @Liinxy idk who moved this to the KFM forum, but i'm guessing they didn't actually open the thread and read any of it. It'd much be more appropriate in the Bug Reports section. TLDR: KFM's didn't get their modifier buffs that they were supposed to.
  16. KFM

    I was wondering about this, looks like they forgot the kfm buffs.
  17. Ongoing DDoS Service Impact

    If your upstream provider (ISP) hasn't been able to mitigate the impact of the attacks at all after over a full week, leaving people questioning whether anything is being done at all, or whether it's an internal server problem rather than a DDOS like you say it is, then it's time to find a new upstream provider (ISP).
  18. Dead Reckoning Set...

    As a founder who bought the master pack only for the exclusive costumes, I don't see what the problem is lol. It's a recolor they're giving out, not the original (which is still just as exclusive). Might seem even more exclusive once everyone's running around with the recolor honestly. Tbh I'd be pretty cool with it if they released recolors that looked nicer than the originals.
  19. Secretkeeper

    There's hope the same can happen for secretkeeper. Try to ask the CM @Liinxy if maybe it'll happen in the future
  20. Name clean out

    The problem with a name clean out, is that reserving a name or two was one of the big perks of the founder packs. Some of those people could argue they bought the pack just to reserve a name to come back to later on. There'd be issues with a name clean out, since there's money involved in a lot of the names. As Iholly mentioned though, the issues would be easily avoided if they simply did a name clean out on all of the non founders only. But in that case, a lot of the good names people want might still not be freed up.
  21. Are kidding me .!

    agreed, some of the gold sinks in this game are completely retarded.
  22. 10/10 B&S Support Team. 10/10...

    Why is NCWest knowingly letting a predator of that sort roam on their game? Like someone could actually end up with trauma from that sort of behaviour. I know exactly who/what this is about and it's pretty old news to most bns players who aren't new to the game. I mean, seriously, there's no way that the NCWest higher up's don't know about the whole situation involving said player. There's PLENTY of evidence of what they did. They even became a freakin meme. There's no logical excuse for that person to still be allowed on the game and it's kind of disgusting that they're still playing. Sure someone has to be gullible as hell to actually fall for his shenanigans, but being gullible doesn't make someone deserving of possibly traumatic experiences.
  23. nah man if all they cared about was making money, then keeping the servers running smoothly and keeping the players happy would be their top priorities. happy players = more players = more money. Tbh though, in regards to this whole ongoing "ddos" thing, I wonder if it's really a ddos or one of their pieces of hardware being unable to handle the load going through it during peak times. Or one of their routers going haywire. Think I might've also heard final fantasy was having issues too though so if that's the case then it's either ddos or a backbone routing issue.

    I hope the dumbasses doing the DDOS get bored soon Not a whole lot that can be done against it other than waiting it out, like a bad storm lol.
  25. Level3 is honestly complete trash. I get an average of 60 ping from canada usually with the routing going through some telia servers, but once in awhile the routing switches to go through Level3 instead, and the instant it hits the first Level3 server there's huge packet loss and hella high ping, resulting in around 90-100 average ping on the final ncsoft server. That's a 50% ping increase going through Level3, not to mention the stability also gets much worse. And when it does go through Level3, the end hop where the level3 network connects to the ncsoft network literally has "level3-ncsoft" in that hops name. So it's obvious ncsoft IS renting service from level3 (as they do with telia as well), and a lot of the routing issues do seem to be caused by NCSofts ISP randomly switching the routing between those two backbone providers (level3 and telia). I honestly think that the Level3 issues a lot of us have experienced since beta should be totally within NCSofts (or NCSofts ISP) capability to resolve, they just haven't put much effort into it or something, which makes no sense. It's not like ping or a stable connection is important in a highly competitive action combat game that's trying to get into the esports scene, not at all (sarcasm). Not to mention that BNS combat system functions in a way that essentially puts your actual combat latency at double whatever it really is, due to every action requiring two-way communication between your game client and ncsofts server, which makes good ping+stability even more important. and yeah, complaining to support about the network issues goes nowhere because NCSoft support isn't able to help with anything more complicated than "turn it off and turn it on again" or "flush your dns". If those two things wont help you then NCSoft support runs out of ideas, they have absolutely zero knowledge of the technical side of network issues.
