      Dojo Rules & Guidelines   09/29/16

      By using this website ("Blade & Soul Dojo"), you agree that you'll follow these rules, and understand that if we reasonably think you haven't followed these rules, we may (at our own discretion) terminate your access to the site: Navigation GeneralRules Questions & Technical Support Blade & Soul Feedback Clan Discussion & Recruitment Marketplace Guides Roleplay & Fan Fiction Mods & Tools Off-Topic Discussion Reputation System Repeat Offenders Ban Appeals Staff Contact General Rules You will not post hate speech, personal attacks or private information. You will not "name & shame" any cheaters, exploiters, hackers or any other rather unpleasant players. Please use the in-game Report and Block features instead. You will not post extremely explicit text or images such as pornography or gore. All content should be safe-for-work. Borderline posts should be hidden with spoiler tags to maintain a SFW (safe-for-work) environment. Please do not post links or images from Imgur. Imgur blocked the Dojo from hotlinking their images with no warning or negotiation offers so any posted Imgur images or avatars will be broken or appear "white". You will not post off-topic discussion or derail threads. Memes, macros and other unrelated content should be hidden with spoiler tags. You will not create posts with the intention of flame-baiting, “circlejerking” or anything else that could be considered low-quality. You will not post images containing additional data such as embedded sounds or documents. You will not ask for free in-game items, NC Coins or gold (“begging”). You will not impersonate Dojo staff, Curse staff or NCSoft staff. You will not flood or spam threads. At the current level of Dojo activity, bumps will only be allowed once every three days. You will not bump old threads that have not been posted on for at least 30 days (“necro”). This does not include guides, mods, tools or clan threads. You will not create threads with the intention of causing unrest (“baiting”). You will not discuss any private servers, cheating, account selling, real money trading (“RMT”), trust trading or related activities. This does not include mods or tools that do not break Dojo rules. False reports will result in a warning or ban. Please read the rules carefully before sending in reports. Backseat (“pocket”) moderation will be hidden to keep the forum clean. If you find a post or thread that you believe needs to be moderated, use the report function. You will not edit your post if it has been edited by a moderator for rule-breaking. You will obey moderator warnings. If you are privately messaged by a moderator for rule-breaking and you wish to contest it, you may do so in the private message but remember that moderator decisions are final. Complaints about Dojo rules, Dojo staff members or the Dojo itself on the forum will be hidden and further action may be taken against your account. If there are changes you wish to see, use the Site Feedback & Support board. Topics and posts may be edited or altered by Dojo staff members due to bad formatting. This can include things such as posts typed in capslock or posts that have content that needs to be hidden with spoiler tags. Moderators may delete or hide posts without warning if the post was not worth writing a warning for. If your post is hidden or deleted and you were not notified, it was done so because it broke a simple forum rule and required removal. Questions & Technical Support Misinformation will be hidden. Constant spreading of misinformation or lazy replies will result in a warning or ban (i.e. “search it yourself”). Blade & Soul Feedback You will not beg NCSoft staff, Curse staff, Dojo staff or Dojo members for gifts, keys, NC Coins, etc unless participating in a specific giveaway. Clan Discussion & Recruitment Forum rules #3, #4 and #9 will be loosely enforced on the Clan Discussion & Recruitment board. Do not create new clan threads over and over to advertise the same clan. Request for an old thread to be locked if you need to create a new one. Attacking other clans for their management or playstyles will not be tolerated and will be treated the same way as personal attacks. If your clan uses a language other than English, use [XX] in the beginning of your topic title (i.e. [FR] for French clans). Marketplace You will not attempt to buy, sell or trade NCoin or items from the Hongmoon Store. You will not participate in any real-money trading ("RMT") transactions, such as selling gold. You will not attempt to buy or sell premium membership. You will not participate in trust trades, such as selling services, trading cross-server, or selling items from the Hongmoon store. Guides You will not create any threads on the Guides board that could not be considered guides. Roleplay & Fan Fiction You will not roleplay in any board outside of the Roleplay & Fan Fiction board. Erotic roleplay (“ERP”) will not be tolerated and will result in a hidden post or deleted thread. Mods & Tools You will not post mods or tools that could be used to give you an advantage over other players (i.e. speedhacks). You will not post extremely explicit mods, such as nudity mods. 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 submit mods that require users to bypass GameGuard, nor will you that teach users how to bypass GameGuard. Off-Topic Discussion Forum rules #3, #4, #8 and #9 will be loosely enforced on the Off-Topic Discussion board. 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.

about global latency if you dont know ill explain.

global latency is how much delay there is between you and the game. if its set to 100ms it means that you will see everything in delay of 100ms.

but,if your connection is 200ms,you will see everything in delay of 200ms ANYWAY and your attack speed will be slowed by 50%.

 

if its set on 100 it means you need AT LEAST under 100ms to get max attack speed.

 

if you have 150ms usually and want to get max attack speed always set it to 150-180.

 

side effect: more global latency means you see everything a bit later then others but then your net successes to keep up.

if its set to 0.you should see everything in time with no delays but since your net cant keep up it will cause slower attack speed.

 

thats why,if you global latency set to high it will give your net more time and attack speed wont be delayed. global latency is like streaming,100ms means you see everything in delay of 100ms.

 

 

the only reason it set to static 100ms and not changing by your net is to avoid unresponsive buttons. side effect,low attack speed = lower dps.

 

 

 

bottom line,set it to 30ms higher than your average ping IN GAME. (not ping of bns buddy)

Hey,

I have a weird problem and am not sure if it is a bug or I'm doing something super wrong. I'm trying to tell as detailed as possible so you can reproduce it.

Yesterday I suddenly had the problem that it would startup the client without asking for account details and and only asked inside the client like it was a while ago, and then obviously it couldnt connect. 

Then I found out that it somehow is removing the setting for EU everytime I start the Bns Buddy. When I set it to EU it worked again.

Today the same thing, accidentally started it up wrongly because I forgot to set EU again, then I set it, but now comes the weird thing: It's asking me before startup for account details, then it's asking me inside the client again, and can't login! I tried that a few times, but somehow it's always asking me twice.

I'm super confused and unsure what I did different yesterday. Hope you have an idea what's going on.

Hi. I'm sorry if this has already been answered/established in a previous question, but I can't seem to find an answer so...

 

Whenever I launch the game using the tool, it will take me to the log in screen and just say "failed to login". Is there any fix for this?

Check that you are running version 5.8.6.1 of BnS Buddy. Make a file repair using the NCSoft launcher and try again with BnS Buddy 5.8.6.1.

Is there any specific reason I need 5.8.6.1 and not 5.2.5.0? And do you know where I could get that specific version #'s download?

We were both right. 

Regardless, as you can see, I did both of what was suggested to me and I still cannot enter the game.

U still have the old ver. your new one must be the 5.8.6.1 where u can get it from the first page , just delete the old one completelly and do a restore first be4 running the tool.

(restore is a bottom in the down left side of the tools first page)

Well, it seems to be working since I used the updater, but now I have a bit of an issue that doesn't necessarily pertain to BnS Buddy? It said it detected the 64 bit version and asked if I wanted to use it. I clicked yes, but whenever I try and use it, it will just close the game and it wont re-open. This is probably because I never updated to the 64 bit version, but it was meerly because I don't know how. I don't mean to derail, but can someone tell me how to do that? I promise after that I'll be out of your guys' hair. 

 

Edit: Well I just ran PZ as admin and that seemed to work, but then that seemed to forcibly close BnS Buddy... @[email protected]

Make an update in the official launcher, it downloads both 32bit and 64 bit versions (difference is not as big as you thing, most things are reused in both versions). Also, launch the game through the official launcher at least once, so you can be sure that your IP is whitelisted. BnS Buddy should be ran with admin privs.
