  1. WastedJoker added a post in a topic What on earth is this fresh nonsense?   

    I've been well aware of xigncode and never had an issue except when the xhunter1.sys file disappeared but my main issue is that the warning looks so incredibly dodgy like those fake "You've got a virus" ads that tricks grannies into ringing premium rate numbers.

    What on earth is this fresh nonsense?
    I've just been updating the Snappy Driver tool when I got this popup:

    I mean, it looks shady as f*** so I obviously looked straight into it.
    The file is called xm.exe and it exists in C:\Program Files (x86)\Black Desert Online\bin64\xc\na\2
    The properties of the file show it is from a company called Wellbia.com.
    A quick google shows this is linked to xigncode.

    I can't see any option to turn off sticker ui. I've not even enabled the option on any of the game windows

  4. WastedJoker added a post in a topic Anyone else has this problem?   

    Maybe it is an issue with the razer synapse framework?
    I recall uninstalling all razer drivers (also used usbdeview from nirsoft) and reinstalling and I don't think I've had the issue since.

    Ugh, it really annoys me that my gear/crystal choices mean I have to use the movement speed costumes but they're usually the crappest looking ones

    Do you know what - I have had this issue but it's only now that I've read your post that I realised it only affected me when browsing this forum.
    I put it down to recently doing a fresh install of the win10 creators update or some weirdness when alt-tabbing out of the game to browse forums while I did something like grind crystals etc or even just some weirdness with h/w acceleration in my browser.
    I'm using Firefox 32bit, btw.

  11. WastedJoker added a post in a topic Stop the griefers!   

    I only ever killed someone taking my spot if I had my daily up or like a week or so ago when a guildy asked me if I'd hold mountain spot for him while he grabbed some food. I had to kill two interlopers rather than let my guildy down
    Otherwise I just try to outgrind them or make myself a nuisance in the hopes they opt to lose karma.
    Unless it's a fellow Tamer in which case I am very polite and have even ceded the spot out of a sense of solidarity.

  13. WastedJoker added a post in a topic Tamer changes 26 April   

    Tamers will only be really viable in largescale pvp if they introduce measures to stop nodewars/seiges being zergfests. It's almost impossible to pick out individuals in largescale which nullifies Tamers and a couple of other classes ability to be effective.
    It's why I don't do nodewars anymore - besides the lag and the zerging, it's just not fun to be waiting for res knowing that no matter what you do you'll end up being sidelined or useless while you're WWing around looking for a target you can take on.

    Since patch I've had an issue where the game lags so bad that my horse is autopathing in zigzags instead of a straightline. WTF.
