  2. I got someone to upload theirs, I no longer get all #INVALID# entries.
  3. It seems the "local/64.dat" for Bns Japan that you've uploaded to your Google Ddrive is corrupt or simply out-of-date/past the grace period. Patching via your program doesn't seem to work altogether, as I see no new file being written or the existing file being overwritten in the "C:\Program Files (x86)\NCSoft\Blade&Soul\contents\Local\NCJAPAN\JAPANESE\data" directory. All I can say is that I've never had this problem before, never needing to use your patcher. I would simply go to your Google Drive, download the English translated local64.dat file, rename the original with a .bak file extension, then paste in the English one. I guess I'll just have to wait until a new "local/64.dat" will be needed.
  4. Please update the Japan xml, getting #INVALID#, thanks.
  5. Beautiful Gon

    That's a Gon.
  6. BNS SEA Open ??

    Can someone who has access to the BnS Thai CBT, post the IP address of the server with the port number 10100? Thanks
  7. Character Animation UPKs

    Credit goes to 4chan /vg/ BnS General's Best Brownie Frlwish. All basic emotes (except dances) of all races for all races! For GonF emotes you need install the emotes of your race. E.g. If you are playing JinF, install JinF emotes for GonF.

    You don't have an ad blocker? :/ No such tools exists (publicly anyway), you have to do it manually. If you have the knowledge that is.
  9. dance mod

    @Lightrick7 If you want to import custom animations, you must understand the information posted here: https://sites.google.com/site/sippeyfunlabs/blade-and-soul-a-unreal-3-based-game-mod-section/animation-data
  10. Character Animation UPKs

    @Dorakyura A Korean guy that goes by the alias of "UE4" on the DCinside forum has reposted your findings. (link) It seems he's working on a animation repacking tool. (link) (link) Edit: Just realised "UE4" is @Lightrick7.
  11. 패키지 파일이 손상되었슴니다. 파일검사를 이용하여 복구하시기 바람니다. The package file is corrupt. Please use File Scan to restore.

  13. Blade And Soul is coming to SEA

    @OP Just FYI this was first posted by @thatrip in the topic below: LinkedIn Job Post: https://www.linkedin.com/jobs/view/244161635 Domain Registrar Info "bns.in.th": https://www.thnic.co.th/th/whois/ I am happy for SEA players, however SEA is not Oceania (Australia). Only Thailand and Vietnam have been mentioned, It's unclear at this stage if Garena will be hosting the server in Singapore, but even if they were too. The best latency Australian's could achieve is ~100 ms, but it's more likely the average Australian would get ~150-200 ms, which as you guys all know is not optimal for BnS. Once again, I dunno why you guys are going on about an Australian themed costume when SEA is not Oceania. South East Asia (SEA) - The main countries in terms of MMO market are Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam. Oceania - The main countries in terms of MMO market are Australia and New Zealand. Curse Inc. are F***ing useless. I can login just not with Firefox, some bug with it and the forum. Funny that @NC Elusive/Julianne Hartly (Blade & Soul's Brand Manager) in a PM to me, stated that SEA belonged to NCTaiwan. Therefore I assume Garnea licensed Blade Soul from NCSOFT for right to publish, distribute, and transmit Blade & Soul in Thailand, Vietnam, and Singapore (?). NCSOFT is a greedy conglomerate with no balls. The only reason why only now that SEA is getting a release is thanks to another publisher. I.e Garena having the logic/balls to see that there is a viable market in the SEA region and it's worth the risk/investment. Not only do NCSOFT get revenue from the licensing fee and royalties. It's Garena the ones who are paying for the server hosting, server maintenance, localisation, staff/support. NCSOFT does the bare minimum acting as a intermediary and collects a massive paycheck each year from them.
  14. Reasons people quit.

    lol Julianne "At this time we have no plans for an Oceanic Server." Care to explain why the FAQ answer was worded like there still a possibility? Every time it was mentioned all we got was false hope. Furthermore tens of thousands of people are still waiting for an update on the possibility of a SEA server. Can you give an update on this post of yours, that you made over a year ago? Is it too much to ask that we get a definitive answer on the matter directly from NCSOFT HQ, via an official statement. That way the Oceanic & SEA BnS communities can move on, and the petition can be closed.
  15. Reasons people quit.

    I love how you totally just ignored my post. Just admit that it's just a job, now that the game has been released and the honeymoon phase is over. No more fucks to be given, coz at the end of the day you get paid...
