  1. That moment when you ask where the insignia-farm is held, you get a party-invite and then get sucked into a Blackwyrm fight... Never have I felt so painfully powerless =____=;

  2. Well people...it's been a long time coming, but - against all odds - the game is actually here and live. I'd like to thank everyone who stuck with us through the years. I hope you enjoy the game.

      I love the game. Have not been feeling bored while doing quest. I think this will be first game after WoW, where I will reach max level.

    2. Valadhiel

      Valadhiel

      I've never reached max level in any MMO I've played. We'll see if that changes with BnS.

    3. Natsu

      Make sure you add me~! Finally, the time has come~ haha~ I will go and make a character soon~!

  3. Is that avatar from anime Get Backers?

  4. The good: I managed to secure my name (yay!) The bad: SweetFX (1.5) no longer works, as GameGuard has stepped up its game =____=;

      Reshade is completely different from sweetfx. It has a much more robust collection of shaders and can use depth information for special tricks like custom ambient occlusion and depth of field. SweetFX is only post-processing shaders.

      Synapse working good here. But I HAVENT updateed it with last patch that were introducing things I don't need xD

      I haven't tried Sweet 2.0 (reshade) yet, but I believe I heard people say that, previously, only 1.5 worked and the Radeon one. Other than that, and GG threw a fit.

      Will wait and see what solutions appear...if at all.

      - Lith. ...Sweet-less.

  5. BnS NA/EU Mod Manager Script

    Thank you very much for the effort put in up til now. (and of course to everyone who has (in)directly helped with "debugging".) - Lith. ...Gratitude.
  6. BnS NA/EU Mod Manager Script

    Figured I would add this, in case people missed it and are running into the same problem I was having. This fix, as stated, is what made things work for me. The .BAT kept doing nothing for me, even though I was running the file as admin (seeing as I'm running an SSD under W10, it's locked down tight...you know the drill, I'm sure). Adding this line at the very top (above the 'Start <line of code goes here>' bit) made the files copy. I'm running the file directly, as admin. I'm not using a shortcut. However, this small string made things happen, where they previously did not, so I like to think that this string works for both the actual .BAT-file, as well as the shortcut. One thing: if you attempt to create a character you will hear a US voice. If you test your character's speech, you get US voices (any way to change this as well, or is this beyond what people are capable of?) BUT, once in-game, I noticed NPCs talk - in my case - Korean. Just thought I would affirm this. (thanks, Loki) - Lith. ...Technicality.
  7. It's a shame you do not receive a heads-up when someone posts on your status.

    I hardly check my profile so I never even noticed you posted something. I am so terribly sorry.

    Under the motto "Better late than never," Yes: It has been a while.

    How have you been sir?

  8. I vant to feel important too! ;___;

  9. Congratulations to everyone who has won a Beta key. Enjoy the upcoming weekend.

  10. Oh well, at least I made the honourable mentions .___.

      That's alright. Shame I couldn't watch the show live, I was out for sports at the time. Somehow it feels so close (would've been amazing if I could nail a master pack this way)

      - Lith. ...Close.

      o/ been a while huh?

  11. Looks like the beta is a fact. It has been a long time coming...

  12. Yay, Arkham knight finally fixed for PC. Something to do while waiting for B&S, if anything.
