  1. should new pics be created? yes where? in the locations specified above in my previous posts, these are the ones that will be used for the tool. there is no process listed on the tools website called 'dump icon', there is icon_dumper, are you doing both? 5.3 Actions build_preparer: Remove old screenshots (pics) icon_dumper: Dump icon files from upk, and convert from tga to png upk_preparer: Move local country upk files into main dir, and dedat xml.dat file upk_scanner: Scan all upk files, output parsed info into log files upk_parser: Parse log files, make raw data info into json database files shooter: Take screenshot of all models (pics) png_optimizer: Compress all png images (pics-cps) compress: Pack tool into zip file 5.4 How to update Update or reinstall your Blade Soul game client Make sure all upk files in the client are all original, otherwise the database made later would be polluted Backup contents dir, if possible Edit file run.bat Edit string: grunt %action% --stack --verbose & pause > nul, replace %action% with the actions listed in point 5.3 Do operations follow the steps listed in point 5.3 Copy screenshots into local dir (make it visible locally) Copy files under database/attach/pics-cps into VS_GUI/BladeSoulTool/tmp/attach Copy files under database/costume/pics-cps into VS_GUI/BladeSoulTool/tmp/costume Copy files under database/weapon/pics-cps into VS_GUI/BladeSoulTool/tmp/weapon Copy files under database/icon/png-cps into VS_GUI/BladeSoulTool/tmp/icon
  2. Copy screenshots into local dir (make it visible locally) Copy files under database/attach/pics-cps into VS_GUI/BladeSoulTool/tmp/attach Copy files under database/costume/pics-cps into VS_GUI/BladeSoulTool/tmp/costume Copy files under database/weapon/pics-cps into VS_GUI/BladeSoulTool/tmp/weapon Copy files under database/icon/png-cps into VS_GUI/BladeSoulTool/tmp/ico Are these folders empty too? I've never tried running the processes seperately
  3. Just so that you know, changing the traitor costume will affect the hongmoon costume too
  4. EU here, getting new background but working login window. not blank like that.
  5. BnS Buddy and the game client have nothing to do with updating the one click tool. Ashllay just posted an updated DB for the tool, follow the instructions to add to yours.
  6. Database looks like it's updated, just running through the images now, can see a few new costumes(and variants), going to have fun with that.
  7. How fast is your system?!?!?!? I've got a long way to go yet!!!
  8. Do you not see the option to select Race/Sex?
  9. I think you are tripping! And i say that in the nicest possible way haha! :D
  10. Thats why surely, there is more than the upk that you need to add, there is a download on the forums for the extra files, but they will mess up other parts of your game, so i wouldn't bother.
  11. Show us a picture, you may not have the required 'extra' localised files required, like some of the wings, and the fiery red/yellow costume added a while ago.
  12. messages don't work on this forum, so i can't respond to them. apply the mod - take the file you download from here and paste into the mod folder in your game installation(the same place the one click took adds iiles)
  13. Follow this guide, posted by bunbun, don't skip any of it, pay attention to all of it, and you'll be up and running. If you don't follow the guide, you'll have exactly the problems you are experiencing.
  14. At the very least, you need to be able to find the executable file. Do you have your explorer set to show file extensions? Can you find anything called bladesoultool?
  15. Looks like my 64bit files have been removed from the installation, last update maybe?
