  1. hey czesc/how are you ?

    im polish and thinking since you have polish text in your ping thread was wondering if i can throw you a friend invite?

    anyhoo yeah im in australia and wondering if i should use WTFast or not i think im sitting on 300 or so ping wise

  2. What about VT or TS ;p? PS. there is way to write on gamepad but it is hard to learn and not that quick but still fast. If you do not write any invocation or monologue then its best way ;] It is possible to write something similar in Xpadder or autohotkey script but ist little advendec to do. (I can try to write that in AHK but now I do not play, maybe after NA/UE B&S)
  3. If you spend some time with a customizing gamepad profile then you can put almost all hotkey on a gamepad. http://www.bladeands...620#entry105620 There you have my xpadder profile with i build from CBT2 to OBT stage. My current profile is litle better because contain emotes hotkey etc (exlucde only pary/messages or similar i think). According to the topic, I play each beta stage and OBT with my gamepad, only thing that angry me is navigate in 'windows'... My only hope is NCSoft will support gamepad especially analog movements and navigate and without integrate with game it is impossible to get fully comfortable combination (shift depending on situation ...) but for me is much better than M+K
  4. Sell/buy something with is isnside FREE clien :bowling:
  5. I hope that too NA/EU version not receive source code ;o
  6. I think it is just a once of dungeon weapon like bombs or rife. Whos know xD
  7. Double less exp ;o. I hink it will be little boring to pass max lvl in few days...
  8. most USB HDD just suspend/standby after 20-30 min non acces... then each time while you try acces to that HDD it must spin up again. You can try to disable that by install software that device but not all manufacturers get that option.
  9. You wrong, encryption was break long time ago but there is other problem, file who has txt content is archive file so inside are meny other stuff. 2nd problem is after extract file with text got ~80MB (!!!) whereof text is ~15/20%, rest of is unknown offsets, settings and other data. 3nd thing is you must know fully structure of that file for recompile, othervise any replace must have same lenght, worse - text is write in UTF16.... 4nd thing is each modyfi somthing you can broke something in game so it wont disappear text in few things Yea, so maybe you right - you cant do it (w/o speciall tools)
  10. And this is what I like in B&S. Instead of focusing on chasing all over the arena, you have to prepare and manage your combo/skills - just pure figh spirit Soul xD
  11. There are few thing from me based on compare updated OBT client to CBT3: Probably it is not final client for OBT so I'll try to update any info as far as possible. What is max lvl for OBT? 50 Hidden Content Is there any new map for OBT? I found only once new map, the rest are same exluding little differents (moved/add/del some object and sometimes new little areas for regural maps) Hidden Content Are there any new items? Yes, there are new items but not much, in hide contend I added any copletly new item that i found in client (few are just new color) Hidden Content Any new skill? I do not found any one new skill exludind change once iconf for FM. What abot new classes? Do not noticed any files for any new class.
  12. Nexon never forever - maybe they have good games but I hate them payment policies, just do not touch B&S :joss_stick:
  13. If Nexon intends to introduce here them policy then I will say good bye to B&S xD
  14. Its buff/debuff effect there was a little mistake here because they were supposed to be in place KFM to separate them from the form the skills
  15. http://www.bnsdatamining.yoyo.pl/cbt3.html (I will uplad better quality after relase OBT client version)
