  1. it does work...cause i am using an intel cpu...dude...just...just leave it turned on and go with it.
  2. if it doesnt make things WORSE, then just leave it on
  3. ah thanks much! can confirm Izanami does work.
  4. explain how to use izanami for NA. i just tried to figure it out myself and it doesnt work.
  5. Feature Request/Bug Fix??? When using BNSBuddy Mod Manager and you click "Mod Folder" it opens up a newly made folder under data>ENGLISH>blahblah. But I want to designate a custom path for where my mods will all be organized. when i try to do that via "mod folder" it does not let me. im not sure if this is a bug or intentional. if it is a bug, here are my OS and stuff that might be useful. Windows 7 64bit all updates other useful information you need for this??? if its not a bug. then it should be a thing. i have like 10gb of mods and i dont want that specifically on my game drive (which is a small SSD so it can really only fit a few games that i play often and has no room for bloat)
  6. the dps meter never worked in 6 man from the start. it only ever was intended for 4 man / 24 man
  7. neat. i havnt been to mushins yet since the update.
  8. anyone that has ever posted "i modded and got banned" was either hacking, or using that dumb mod tool that uses cheat engine (which is a hack tool) or got banned for OTHER REASONS and is simply blaming it on modding. They dont care if you mod the game. they have said so many times. They literally said in black and white, as long as w/e mod you are running does not trigger GameGuard they dont care.
  9. updated memory offset is available
  10. Did not read every post, so I may be restating somethings already said, but here goes. 1: This dps meter kind of sux, it only activates in 4 man (and presumably 24 man, havnt actually tried yet though). Because of this you cant really test out builds easily. 2: There are alot of things going on in most 4 man fights that you cant really explain to the dps meter (or the dps meter cant explain to you) for example: a good destroyer (espcially now after the patch) is going to be doing ALOT of grabbing, why? so the entire party can do their maximum damage while the boss is grabed (the new Restraint skills are amazing), and also so that the boss stays still, allowing the party to really burst it down, and making sure the boss cannot attack the party while grabbed. Because of this, everyone else's dps goes wayyyyy up, while the Destroyer that is clearly doing their job dps goes down. 3: Mechanics: alot of the newer/higher end dungeons have trickier mechanics that require people to...you know...actually play the game instead of just facerolling. This of course means certain classes have certain roles. Tanks will almost always be on the main boss (if there are adds at all the adds I dont think get counted into the dps meter, so while the tank is free to increase their dps on the boss everyone else is losing dps by killing adds, i could be wrong about this though, needs more testing) 4: skill: this one is the most important factor IMO. this is NOT your build (although if you have skill, you probably went and tested your build to make sure it was good anyway). I mean literally skill. Your skill. How good at the game are you? Do you pay attention to the bosses animations? Do you dodge/iframe when you should? Do you die alot? etc etc etc. All these things are going to factor into your final dps total. Taking alot of damage and need to back off for a sec to heal up? thats less dps. IMO this dps meter is kind of useless. the ACT meter is far better.
  11. last time i posted about humble bundle, the bundle included blade and soul stuff. this time there is no blade and soul stuff. but the bundle itself is too good not to repost. so here you go. check out all the awesome stuff that comes in the bundle. get it while you can. https://www.humblebundle.com/capcom-playstation-bundle
  12. i had to run a file repair through the normal launcher to fix the loading screen freeze.
  13. As of 4/30 I am having major issues with BnSark loading screens. 1: the loading screens disabled is not working anymore 2: loading screens are freezing up constantly 3: the game has started crashing on loading screens alot Any news/info on this?
