    Project Lyn is a mod i’m working on that will turn all human characters into humanoid Lyns. Pretty hard, pretty annoying since I need to relog each time to see if something is working correctly or not. So far I’ve changed Character Creation job preview, hair styles to properly fit the lyns head, makeup, decal, and eyes. When all is done i’ll start switching some items around for the use of the Lyns ears/tails. Issues Character Face Adjustment not working whatsoever besides the aging bar (Still works normally in game so it's not a bother) Cannot be taller than default Lyn (You can a little but it's not tall as it should be when creating a normal lyn.) I manly doing this for fun, photos, and gesture/idle animations use, but most of all photos. Update 7-20-17 Completed GonM,GonF,JinF,Kun JinM will be completed by the end of this week. Added new Video. Also if you like the mod hit the like on the vids for me please so more people can check it out. Also also I still need help with this.

    Please take your time and try at least the solutions under "Requirements" & "General Steps" and use the search function of your browser for a better overview (Ctrl+F) *I have Win10 and it works for me *"new" Launcher from NCSoft: BnS_Lite_Installer.exe http://download.bladeandsoul.com/BnS_Lite_Installer.exe *Use the built-in Event Viewer // Manager of Windows to identify the cause of errors: Original Thread: https://forums.bladeandsoul.com/forums/index.php?/topic/142517-guide-errors-installing-game-crash-delay/#entry1444586 Index: 1. How to install Blade and Soul 2. How to install the BnS Client on a different drive 3. Problems with uninstalling the Game 4. Requirements 5. General Steps 6. Error before installing the game 7. Error after / while installing the game 8. Error Codes 9. Gameplay (Game-Crash // Performance Issues // Delay ) 10. Error while login 11. If nothing works 12. How to set up Wtfast (Ping-Booster) How to install BnS: 1. If you already played in the previous Alpha/Beta be sure to uninstall everything related to Blade & Soul under Control Panel Programs -> Programs -> Blade and Soul + Launcher Don´t attempt to manually delete folders 2. Once you´re done, download and run the BnS_Lite_Installer.exe at the top of the guide and install it as as admin, by right-clicking onto it and selecting “Run as admin“ 3. At this point it´s possible that Windows´ Smartscreen will interject to block the installation, due to security reasons. https://imgur.com/w9KbQsw 4. Click onto “More Info“ and select “Run anyway“ 5. Click your way through the jungle until you arrive at the Terms & Conditions(READ IT!!! – just kidding). Click Next, but wait now. 6. At this point you can change the directory of your Client, but there´s sth. you should know. http://imgur.com/J70xfxD * \NCSOFT is missing, if you manually select a different folder. Be sure to add it at the end of the directory, to avoid possible problems with the client. 7. In the next step the Installer will ask, if you want to create a short-cut to your desktop. Please let it ticked and don´t move your folder afterwards. *If the short-cut is broken or if you still moved the folder somewhere else, proceed to Error 3001 under Error Codes 8. From this moment, just accept everything until the end. 9. Once the Installer closed itself, be sure to open the “Blade & Soul“ short-cut as admin 10. Shortly after the Launcher will update and you´ll see a Login window http://imgur.com/LYKcWUG 11. Write your ID+PW down and copy/paste the Verfication code you´ll receive 12. Before you proceed to push the Update button, change the server-location to Europe//NA. Otherwise your Founder Pack Rewards may end up on a different server, if you forget about it. 13. A window will appear now, confirm it and Push the Update-button. Afterwards you should be done. How to install the BnS Client on a different drive: 1. There is an option to change the directory of the client in the installer file, if you missed it, deinstall the client+Launcher and try again or deinstall the Client and follow the steps below. 2. Go to "Program Files (x86)\NCWest\NCLauncher" 3. Open NCLauncher.ini with notepad 4. Go to "InstallFilePath=" and change it to the drive you want it to be http://imgur.com/4cdey5K Problems with uninstalling the Game: 1. Open "Run" (windows-button + R) type in regedit, use the search function type in "NCWest\" now delete "NCupdater module" registry entry 2. Restart your PC and reinstall Requirements: 1) Apply your Code under https://support.bladeandsoul.com/hc/en-us/articles/205652005-How-do-I-use-my-serial-code- 2) Install the latest nVidia // AMD drivers for you graphic cards 3) Check if the clock in your computer is set right. Sometimes Windows Update doesn´t work, due to that. Also other programs need the right time to work properly. 4) Check if your system is infected. Antivirus-//Anti-Maleware program 5) Install Windows Updates 6) Download http://download.bladeandsoul.com/BnS_Lite_Installer.exe , change the compability of "BnS_Lite_Installer.exe" under "properties" to Win7 // 8 // XP (Service Pack 7) Install it as admin and keep it 8) Restart your PC/Notebook and start-up your client before trying any of the now mentioned steps General Steps: 1. Restart your Computer 2. Change the compability of the client "Blade & Soul" under "properties" to Win7 // 8 // XP (Service Pack 3) and/or "run it as admin" by right-clicking on the icon "Blade & Soul" 3. Deinstall your anti-virus or any third party program that interacts with or restricts your network (Third party firewalls, Norton Antivirus, iobits malware fighter, Zemana AntiLogger ...) Possible alternatives: Avira AntiVir Free, Bitdefender,... 4. Check your Firewall. Sometimes when prompted to connect - users accidentally block the connection attempt. Check the firewall rules and logs to make sure you are not blocking a connection attempt. 5. Open "Run" (windows button+R) type in msconfig and go to the tab "Services". Click onto "Manufacturer" to sort them and disable/uncheck all non-microsoft services - temporary (including your antivirus software). Don´t forget to reactivate your services, if it worked. 6. Run your computer in safemode and see if you can install/run Blade & Soul 7. Check if any program(Firefox, Chrome, IE, VPN-Changer,…) uses a proxy server and disable the option under settings. 8. Try running the Launcher from a second PC/Notebook of the same network (to rule out general network issues) 9. If you live on a campus or anything alike, it´s possible that their router//server blocks your connections attempts. 10. Download & repair your client via the "BnS_Lite_Installer.exe" at the top of the guide 11. At times the hosts-file can be altered by viruses//malwares. In order to solve it go to: C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts Open the hosts-file with Editor and delete the lines without # http://imgur.com/EPH7l4Z 12. Use the built-in Event Viewer // Manager of Windows to identify the cause of errors: 13. Instead of MV C++ 2005 try Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 - Further explaination under A requirement for Blade and Soul Instalation failed. 14. (If you´ve already installed your client!) Delete the "GameGuard" folder under C: \Program Files (x86)\NCSOFT\BnS\bin -->Restart "Blade & Soul" - the client - so that GameGuard will be reinstalled. Don´t forget to restart your PC 15. Try creating a new user on your PC/Notebook, sometimes it´s due to the username+settings that the client encounters errors. It will also reset all settings that might cause problems. (Solves 80% of all problems) Error before installing the game: 1. If you or a different person, in your houshold, played a foreign version of BnS, it´s possible that he forgot to reset the system locale settings, try changing it back, deinstall the game + launcher, reboot and reinstall 2. Languages that use symbols like "Ø" cause problems for Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable so that it isn´t able to install properly. (People from Norway and Denmark encounter this problem quite a lot). Go to step 5. 3. Possible alternative: Uninstall MV C++ 2005 and install Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 (64bit version): http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=15336 (32bit version): http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=29 4. It´s possible that "svchost.exe" causes problems https://joelmansford.wordpress.com/2009/02/20/killing-the-right-svchostexe-process/ 5. Try creating a new user on your PC/Notebook, sometimes it´s due to the username+settings that the game and Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable encounters several errors, while the installation. It will also reset all settings that might cause problems. (Solves 80% of all problems) A requirement for Blade and Soul Instalation failed: 1. Deinstall Microsoft Visual C++ 2005, reboot 2. Download and install Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 (64bit version): http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=15336 (32bit version): http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=29 3. If you still encounter problems, it´s possible that MV C++ 2005 isn´t installed properly via the client. Try installing it from official microsoft page. http://www.microsoft...ls.aspx?id=3387(x86 version) https://www.microsof...s.aspx?id=21254(x64 version) https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=26347 (Install this one, too, if you still have problems) 4. Reboot. Other Solution: 5. Use the build-in repair function of the launcher http://imgur.com/VyyVG0l 6. If neither steps worked, deinstall the Launcher+Client 7. Now go to C: // D:\Programs (x86)\ and delete the NCSOFT-Folder(s), so that nothing is left. 8. Disable your antivirus and reinstall the game with the Launcher again. 9. Lastly reboot & reactivate your Antivirus Error after / while installing the game: NCSLauncher.exe is missing 1. Download and install this Launcher http://launcher.patcher.ncsoft.com/NC-Launcher/NC-LauncherSetup.exe Error Codes: *use the search-function of your browser(Ctrl+F) DirectX Setup - An internal error occured: 1. Download and install both programs. https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=30653 http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=35 2. Restart your PC 3. Now repair your client with the BnS_Lite_Installer.exe Invalid game client file. Please update the game client or reinstall: 1. Install DirectX 9 manually for your system https://www.microsoft.com/en-ca/download/details.aspx?id=34429 2. If step one didn´t help install this, too. https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?displaylang=en&id=35 3.Lastly if neither worked, try to manually restore/renew "D3Dx9_43.dll" Side-by-side configuration is incorrect: This usually happens due to incorrect C++ runtime components. 1. Try installing: Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86) http://www.microsoft...&displaylang=en Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable Package for (x64) http://www.microsoft...&displaylang=en 2. Other solution: http://codeketchup.blogspot.de/2012/07/how-to-correct-side-by-side.html Without any Error Code: 1. Use the built-in Event Viewer // Manager of Windows to identify the cause of errors: 2. If you use VPNs, like Astrill VPN service the .dll - "ASProxy.dll" in the "System32" folder might be missing/deleted 3. Go to "SystemWoW64" folder, search for your VPN ".ddl" (here: ASProxy.dll) and copy and paste it into your "System32" folder *Special thanks to MinaTakashi Gameplay: Game/PC crashes: 1. Virtual memory could be too low or turned off. Go "Control Panel" -> System and Security -> System -> Advanced system settings - > window will pop up -> go to advanced tab "performance" -> settings -> "change" increase virtual memory to 4096mb (x-times 1024mb) or higher and press the set button. 2. Update your graphic driver 3. Check temperature; fan could be broken // too slow 4. Reduce the resolution of the Game while inside the character creation. Although it sounds ridiculous, it worked for me with many games. It seems to be a problem with the driver. Especially Alpha-Games encounter this problem quite a lot, since the driver, server or game-code may not fully support it, yet. (1,280 × 720 // 1600 x 900) 5. Reduce the game-settings in general while inside the chracter creation. Does the time until game crashes prolong? 6. Open Task-Manager and observe how your client behaves. Does the RAM go higher and higher? Can it send any data through the network? Does your CPU spike relentlessly? Slow Gameplay: Be sure, to choose the tab "Program Settings" while adjusting the values in your Nvidia/AMD Control Panel instead of "Global settings". Otherwise you´ll give your PC unnecessary headaches. 1. Faulty Nvidia/AMD Settings that aren´t compatible with the game. Open your Nvidia/AMD Control Panel and try adjusting it. Also change options, that are set to "automatically" and give them a fixed value (Best is the lowest or 2nd lowest - otherwise latency may occur). 2. Disable Shader Cache - since the drive is the slowest part of the PC/Notebook, for some games, if this option is On it may slow the gameplay down, even on a SSD. Ingame go to Settings and tick vertical synchonization and do the same in your Control Panel 3. Go to "power management" in your control panel and choose max. performance 4. Check under Nvidia/AMD Control Panel - Program Settings, if Bns uses the right Graphic Card. Usually it is set to automatic. Adjust it manually to the "gaming-card" 5. Change the compability mode under Nvidia/AMD Control Panel to single monitor 6. Update your graphic driver 7. Most of us use Wifi, which often cause latency and problems. Go to Device Manager, your network card and set "Transmission line" to the "highest" value and set "Roaming-Dynamic" to the "lowest" Also change the channel of your Network card and modem, it could be due to neighboring Wifi that you encounter problems atm. 8. Open up Command as admin and type in and hit enter after every command • ipconfig/dnsflush • netsh int tcp set heuristics disabled • netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled • netsh int tcp set global rss=enabled • netsh int ip reset C:\resetlog.exe 9. Deinstall unneeded programs and free disc space 10. Defragment your hard drives (HDD - NEVER your SSD) and by now you should go drink some water. 11. Run your antivirus program(Best for me are Bitdefender or Avira Antivirus) and a malware program, like Malwarebyte, to see if your system is infected. https://www.malwarebytes.org/ 12. While inside the game: Go to settings, check the "Show FPS" & "Vertical Synchronization" box under the "Graphic" tab and see if your FPS are at least 42++, if it isn´t, lower your resolution, ingame effects. 13. Go to settings and tick the "optimize for battle" option. Side-Effect: Hands will now look like blocks, but your overall FPS will be much more stable. 14. It could be due to your ping. In order to improve it use a Ping-Booster.

    If you're auto updates are OFF you're still good. Just don't update it whatsoever.
  13. 1 point
    Yes is fine as long as auto updates are disabled. the problem only occurs once you download and install the bogus patch or anything new downloaded from the site. DO NOT REDOWNLOAD ANY BNS BUDDY FILES, INCLUDING OLDER ONES, FROM THE NET TILL ENDLESS GIVES THE ALL CLEAR!!!! The hosting service used for BnS Buddy was compromised from what I hear and anything downloaded from it right now is suspect.

    Hi everyone, I would like everyone to just post what server & sub-server everyone is playing on at the moment. It would be great if we could all play together in the same guild + server! That way finding parties & doing raids etc would be soo much more fun & easier. So please post what server everyone is playing on! We'll see how many people are actually playing on the same server/ and based on which server has the most English speakers I might just move over there. Ill start: Server: 电信十区 [Dian Xin 10] Sub-server: 御剑出鞘 [The first one] In-Game-Name: keroppi陈 I also have an assassin on: Server: Dian Xin 1 Sub-server: The first one. I forgot what the name was haha... In-Game-Name: keroppii

    another update: i have install the newest reshade to BNS to finally manage to 100% copy the whole thing as it was on the 1.1v and glad i did. because the settings is different on the new version and simply copy the numbers and settings was not making the same results. here is the preset that should have been from the start: BNSFinal.ini maximum graphics increase with the least performance loss and also keeping the original look for the game.

    Anyone else make anime characters in this game and try to fit them into the right classes? Touka -Tokyo Ghoul (KFM) doesn't really use weapons just kicks and fists CC -Code Geass (SIN) she's sneaky so a sin is the most logical for her Shou Ouma -Guilty Crown (Bladmaster) His main weapon in the show is a huge sword Mememe Chan -Mememe! (???) can't really figure her out maybe KFM or Blademaster Anyone have any creations like this? I would upload my charcters too but for some reason it won't let me.
