You will not steal work created by another user. All work must be original unless you are given permission by the original creator of the work to post it on the Dojo. You will not submit mods that infringe on the copyrights of companies (i.e. Sanrio outfits, etc.).

You will not need to use spoiler tags for off-topic posts, including borderline content, memes, macros, etc. Reputation System You will not use the reputation system in a way that shows bias towards specific members. Repeat Offenders We will no longer be using the warning point system. Instead, temporary bans will be issued to repeat offenders. The decision to ban and the length of the ban will be at the moderators’ discretion. Ban Appeals If you feel you were wrongly banned or that you have changed your ways, you can email me through the Dojo’s contact system (found on my profile underneath “Contact Information”). Your appeal will be discussed by the Dojo staff members before a decision is made. Please note, creating additional accounts (“sockpuppets”) to circumvent a Dojo ban will result in a longer ban of the original account and permanent bans of the additional accounts.

Great job! This should help some people who were having issues with mods.

Should note though, for your to do list, GameGuard is already removed from the game. If you delete the gameguard folder from your game files, the game still boots without redownloading it, so it doesn't depend on it anymore. Hopefully they keep it that way.

Just checked in Process Hacker and you seem to be right. GameMon.des and GameGuard.des are no longer being loaded as modules.

This is maybe an error or a test on NCsoft side. The gameguard has been disabled and enabled during the day for the past 2 or 3 days.

The call is there (packet call) and sometimes it's answered with a petition to initialize the gameguard and sometimes it does not.

Just saw your post on tumblr, and wanted to congratz you here :D ! Very good job. Also, there is a suggestion I wanted to give you :

The launcher is really great, but is there any way to make possible in the selection serveurs the name?

I mean, for exemple : French => Dokumo

Cuz, for now the only thing the launcher is telling me is : French => Region : Eu (European Serveur or French serv?) :P

I wasn't sure if there was another server. To my knowledge both the EU and NA clients only have one server location respectively. NA is all in Dallas, Texas, USA and EU is in Frankfurt, Hesse, Germany. If there is another server though, which I'll check on today and tomorrow after my classes, I'll add it.

Doesn't work for me if I don't right-click run as admin on it. Might wanna have the app require admin rights.

I like it, gj~

I'll release an update with the permissions request tonight. Something that I hadn't considered as I have UAC disabled on my computer so everything runs as admin by default. Thanks for mentioning.

Edit: Uploaded an update that should ask for administrative rights now.

The jp voices will work. The launcher skips the file checking that NC Soft's launcher does. Allowing open replacement of files. However, only upk's are supported by it's mod manager at present. My goal is to keep it simple. I may work on a future version that can update the client, thus completely eliminating the official launcher. Also I have plans for a full suite of modding tools.

The launcher is designed to eliminate that message box. Make sure you are placing the upk's in the mods folder of the launcher and hitting "apply". At worst case because the launcher does not verify and repair files like the official one, you can freely replace the original files altogether. Although you will have to do so every patch and if you do, please make sure to keep a backup of the original files somewhere. I will be releasing v1.2 either tonight or tomorrow as well which will have a bit better of a mod manager along with a splash screen replacer.

Yet another update to the launcher. The modding window is starting to turn into a suite of its own. The update today includes the first of texture replacement successes with the ability to replace the splash screen.

Registered to Thank you for this tool will be helpful for managing mods/testing things. Also as far as a premium version goes as long as it is only features that is only in testing and would be added to the final project I would support it and buy it if I had the spare at the time to support the development of this tool

Glad to see it is enjoyed ^-^. I have a new version that I'll be releasing some time this week, keeps getting pushed back to stuff coming up and school.... I wouldn't make a feature that is only for donators as I don't believe in charging for software entirely. Though I do need more top ramen and soda too. It would be pre-release features such as testing the body sliders and other options I am working on like being able to edit textures. Donators would also be credited if I do end up going that route. For now, I will keep to the current schedule of posting updates on tumblr and releases here.

Hello, i messaged you but im going to ask here again anyway. i am trying to play B&S on a library computer and i came to this problem of admin tag on a program. i tried to use Resource Hacker to change it as asInvoker but the tag wont go away. there is a direction how to change the administrator privilege but i couldnt understand it,,, :(

can you give me a clear procedure on removing the admin tag for your BnSLauncher or send me version 1.1 that does not have required administrator right?

Thank you!!

P.S im not really good at computer so,,,.

I'll reply here what I said in the pm's. I had added the tag because people were telling me that the launcher wasn't working unless ran as admin. I don't have a copy of 1.1 or 1.2 anymore that I can recompile without it. However, I will include a build of 1.3 later this week that is without it.

The tool seems to be quite unfinished so I'll stick with writing a similar tool by hand as part of my launcher. Thing is now becoming a Blade and Swiss Army Knife type of thing.

so we use the tool instead of launcher but how does it work on launch/update?

sorry for asking because last time i ran the game without nclauncher, i got an error and had to reinstall the game

1 thing i'm confused is "Texture replacement", what does it do exactly?

My next update will include all of the body sliders in it, in an easier format. post-209835-0-46947300-1455515597_thumb.png The texture replacement is a feature I plan to implement so that we can pick a upk and change the textures of a costume, the interface or the terrain.
