  1. Endless i suggest you to close the server and cancel the whole auto update thing. when you make new version just upload it to the forum. that way no one will be able to hack unless they take over your forum account.
  2. 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.
  3. it cant look better^^ i have checked million times. pictures just can't fully show the true improvements of the preset.
  4. ok i think i got it all fixed: BNS2017.ini the only thing that is missing in the new reshade is the Emboss. iam using it a tiny bit to make the textures even sharper. your BNS should look like this with the latest preset,please check: if it doesn't look exactly like this i will consider uploading the whole thing with the old reshade.
  5. the grain should be almost unnoticeable,on the new reshade its much stronger,i guess i didnt reduce it enough.
  6. new update, i made improvements cloning the presets from the old reshade to the new one,here is the updated preset: BNS2017.ini
  7. glad it works for you now. iam using an old reshade for bns and it does not have ini file,it works differently. but then i thought maybe the new version works in other way and yes its good that i checked that.
  8. you can use it on any server or any game. this preset works awesome in almost every game: i dont dare to play a game without my preset and you can understand from the screens why. i think there is a guide in the forum of how to use reshade,you should check it.
  9. B&S ReShade config files.rar sorry for the delay i was doing some final testing. so here are the config files,i think you need to create a preset for blade and soul and then copy paste those config files into the preset folder and apply it. i have never tried to bring it into other pc so i hope i shared it the right way. if its wrong then ill need help of how to share it. some notes and improvements from the last preset: -colors are no more shown incorrectly on some objects. -less performance cost (around 15% from 20%) -more accurate lighting -better anti aliasing -sharper image with much less cartoon look alike -HUD is more clear and calm looking then last time -text in MOST cases is much more clear then last time -strong light's from skills (explosions,ect) will be more flashy and dynamic. (you will understand when you will go to a boss fight for sure) -much more accurate contrast -higher resolution for textures! (not really,but looks like it) -colors are more accurate and closer to CGI colors,better then both game's default and previous preset. knows issues: -fps cost -some text will appear with very small white shadow known very BIG issue: -once you use this preset for some time,you will never want to play without it. XD ENJOY!!
  10. my wrath is almost fast as with xml edit (19 instead 20 hits) before that with my 160ms it was 15-16 hits so iam very happy with this patch. now i can enjoy fair gameplay without huge disadvantage over low ping player and without the need of "breaking the rules".
  11. works just fine with the older version. i guess its the last time i hurry to update...
  12. i have problem with the new version. everytime you change something in the xml its just go back to original once you start the game. will try the old version now...
  13. sorry i didnt get the hint. i was checking before using it and i been told that reshade is not touching the game but only the directx it self. EDIT: ohhhh you said white listed.
  14. using reshade can flag account? i use it to get better graphics. (i even made a video about it long ago) as far as i know it edit the directx9 and not the game,right?
  15. i dont even know what are those tools you mentioned that are detectable. if i understand you,those modding the game while its running,while the game guard is running and thats why those flag the account,right? your tool cant make the xgin3 flag accounts?
