  1. Of course you can't see the full command line via Task Manager. Ignorance is bliss. Run on a Command Prompt (as admin): wmic path win32_process get caption,commandline | findstr /i "Client.exe"
  2. F3/F4, Game Client Interception, clean memory are universal.
  3. @lonesome Because in TW, getting from 1 to 50 takes 1 day. No need to kill world bosses, no need to clear dungeons. You can play together whenever it's catch-up or not. Also, when you get to 50, you can already queue for non-end-game Lv.50 purple dungeons as TW players don't discriminate against new players (just make sure to read guides). You will always have to grind or swipe in a F2P MMO, no matter where/when you start. @batcat For 6v6 or 3v3, people don't queue, they find members via cross-server lobby zone chat. P.S.: Furthermore, of course, there are less people when it's 1AM-7AM server time.
  4. @lonesome Nope, if you want to play English B&S in SEA, join TW.
  5. Izanami uses in-house tools. And I'm not going to share them. EDIT: Also, have you tried to setup a petition requesting Garena to make multi-language support? (Same as NA/EU has 3 languages).
  6. There is a sticky topic in Mods & Tools. Also if there were a sustained amount of donations for the TH patch, I might consider it. To be frank, I play on TW, and TW is pretty close to TH so TH is a direct competitor to TW. I simply want to build the community on TW but not on TH.
  7. @overminding I don't care.
  8. @[email protected]@batcat There is no plan for TH server's English patch.
  9. You can't apply 32bit patch to 64bit client and vice versa. No. "No Loading Tips" -> Restore -> Apply.
  10. @shadow3do Post this survey on your Russian forum(s) and tell them to fill it out: https://goo.gl/forms/sOBbW8Oezr6K5SbR2 if there are a lot of requests I might do it.
  11. There was a short period when I mistakenly pushed the wrong version pointer file so the update was messed up (downloading the wrong thing). If you got affected, just get the new version of the Izanami launcher from Google Drive.
  12. If you play on 32bit client then you have to choose *-32bit. Remember to Restore before changing regions.
  13. You can't use 64bit to patch 32bit. There is an easy way to tell which client you are running. If you are indeed running the 64bit client (when selecting the 64bit region on Izanami), "Kill Game Processes" under Izanami -> "Tools" should be clickable.
  14. My previous reply was for @xEndless. The compatibility disable DPI scaling doesn't always work. You can set DPI Scaling to 100% as a workaround if you want https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2900023/some-desktop-applications-may-appear-blurred-on-high-dpi-displays
  15. @xEndless: Here are some little tips AutoScaleMode Enumeration ContainerControl.AutoScaleMode Property. In theory the default setting (DPI or Font) should work fine but sometimes it is best to switch it off completely (set to None to remain true to the pixel-precise layout): Form.AutoScaleMode = System.Windows.Forms.AutoScaleMode.None; or this.AutoScaleMode = System.Windows.Forms.AutoScaleMode.None;
