  1. Important Announcement Thanks all for your donations, we have met the goal for a new code-signing certificate. But it will take a little while to get one. Version 0.0.8.15 was not signed, but the automatic update process is still protected by checksum verification (less secure than digital signature verification). I will post here (and updating post #2) regarding any new version until we get a new code-signing certificate. Hero1711BnSLauncher.0.0.8.15.7z - MD5: ea96dd4ffd7dbd353abd88996b7e2e39 Hero1711BnSLauncherUpdate.0.0.8.15.exe - MD5: dc1da48d0e08d9e5cf2c088d8984b7f5 Also, even though we do not in emergency need of fund anymore, please keep donating from time to time as a way of saying "Thank you" to Project Izanami.
  2. Anyway to fix the INVALID error? When I apply the Visual patch, everything reads as INVALID. I've already downloaded a new english visual patch but it's still the same. Have you updated your game via NCLauncherS?
  3. You have to activate your KR account. You will need someone who lives in KR to help you. Or you can buy an activated account from online vendors. Note that if you bought from an online vendor, the activated status of that account would be in the form of "loaning", so the original owner of the KSSN might take it back later and your account would become inactivated again.
  4. Are you sure that you got 403 right after clicking ONLY the "Update" button? And which "Update" button?
  5. You get blue weapons and accessories from main quest on your way to lv 46.
  6. 7zG.exe comes with Hero1711BnSLauncher.exe.
  7. Should be fixed in 0.0.7.11.
  8. Oh ok, thanks for reporting. I guess the addition of automatic downloading/extracting the packs triggered something in the GoogleDrive's antivirus. https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/6984638b71fab085f1f47cefb585f04bf017299ef4b16acb1c1a98780b351cad/analysis/1482559946/ You can download the .exe or .7z.
  9. Yea. But for KR (at the moment) you only need to disable "Logos" everything else is working fine.
  10. Smart Translation (some texts without a direct translation can now be translated automatically) which was introduced in patches of version caused several bugs on English Patches of version 2016.12.17. All the reported bugs have been fixed in 2016.12.17v2.
  11. Izanami launcher 0.0.7.0 and EnglishPack 2016.12.17 have been released with support for the Korea 64bit client. Older EnglishPacks are not compatible with the new Izanami launcher. It has not been tested much due to queue time on KR. Please report bugs.
  12. Cuz I made a mistake and too lazy to update it.
  13. Because new players don't need the HM weapon anymore, as they are now provided with 1-time-use weapons. For old players, you can transfer gems to your new characters and breeze through the story quest with just blue-grade weapons till lv45. And if you are currently on silver frost weapons, you can salvage these for stronger (and cheaper to upgrade) weapons. http://tw.ncsoft.com/bns/event/1612/comeback/index
  14. Btw please post to the main thread.
