  1. All the info i got is from the NA/EU client, check your wardrobe!
  2. What instructions did you follow for the installation? from a video guide or from the first post?
  3. is there anything else in the in app log, you did follow the installation fully right? you've installed nodejs and you are running the tool(the .exe not the .bat) as administrator
  4. My Path(working flawlessly) is: "path": { "game": "C:\\Program Files (x86)\\NCSOFT\\BnS", "data": "contents\\Local\\NCWEST\\data", "tencent": "contents\\Local\\NCWEST\\ENGLISH\\CookedPC", "bns": "contents\\bns\\CookedPC" Your data path looks different, remove ENGLISH from it and try again.
  5. The texture files aren't being replaced because they are not replaced. You don't need new texture files if the old ones work just fine. If you were modifying the costume you are replacing(texture mod) then you would need a new texture file, instead it just uses the old one. The Lyn Costume 10123 doesn't appear in my database, where did you get it from? Which version are you using?
  6. https://github.com/agreatfool/BladeSoulTool
  7. Yay!!!!!!!! Glad we got you working! enjoy! Just one thing though, you know there is an update coming tomorrow right? might as well save running it until then? :p
  8. OK, just to try something, as it seems as though everything is OK from what i can tell from here, your path to your tool has a ' in it (Mod's) can you remove the ' and any spaces from the path before the tool? then try it again. So instead of D:\Juegos\Mod's\Blade & Soul\xxxxx change to: D:\Juegos\Mods\Blade&Soul\xxxx
  9. For the non spanish speaking( i used google translate): The system can not find the path specified Are you running the tool as admin, to clarify - are you running an admin command prompt, navigating to the folder and executing the run command? or are you right clicking on the run.bat file and running as administrator?
  10. You are joking right?!?!?!? Check the blade and soul ops twitter account. If the game is in maintenance then the game is in maintenance! You surely don't expect xendless to do something about that do you?!?!? Next you'll complain when you fail a dungeon, or don't get the RNG reward you wanted!
  11. Change your game path from: "C:\\Program Files (x86)\\NCSOFT\\BnS CBT" to "C:\\Program Files (x86)\\NCSOFT\\BnS"
  12. You show your installation folder is the normal folder, yet your game path is "C:\\Program Files (x86)\\NCSOFT\\BnS CBT" Thats probably why the tool won't work
  13. No, the V2.0.7 database is very old, and doesn't have any of the newer costumes, there are instructions in the first post for updating the database, there is also a thread started by @Ashllay who is providing updated databases.
  14. did you update it?
  15. run the update (instructions within this thread, and also in the first post), will show you how to add all icons and images apart from a couple.
