    BDO is suddenly Cooking my 7970 (It could handle it last week)
    I've played this game since beta, not on ultra settings or anything, but reasonably well on medium-high with high textures, etc.  Never EVER gotten a stable 60fps, but it's been playable, and there's never been any problem with over-heating.  Now, suddenly this game (and only this game) is cooking my GPU.  As soon as I launch BDO my GPU temp skyrockets to the upper 90s, and I have to close the game to prevent damage to  my hardware.  Has anybody else had this problem and have insight into a solution?  Thanks for any insight anybody can offer!
    ---
    (A Note about my GPU Drivers: I am currently running 16.12.2, I rolled back from ATI's latest drivers to see if the temps were a driver issue, as 16.12.2 was what I had to rollback to when ATI rolled out the last round of drivers that made BDO Unplayable.  I have this issue with both sets of drivers.
    *I have tested other games and their temps with MSI Afterburner so I can see what the temps are at while in active game play.  Temps are stable under 80, which for a 7970 is a reasonable operating temperature.
    *My pc is clean/has recently had all the dust blown out of it.  Has good ventilation, and the ambient temps are rather cool. (My hands are cold as I type this) so its not summer temps making my system temps spike.
    *There is even a fresh application of Tunia thermal paste on my GPU (Yes, I know how to do this, and I did not fk it up) as I said, it keeps stable operating temps on EVERY other game I've tried.)

    You know what I'd like to see more of (in the outfits they release for female chars)? PANTS.  Not little shorts, not undies, not a bikini bottom and a loincloth...but actual pants.  That aren't cut out to make that ass still hang out...  The kind of thing somebody with brains might wear... and yes... boots/shoes that don't have a stiletto heel on them. 
    I do character and costume design/concept art Kakao, let me help bring pants to the BDO universe.  I can come up with a few outfits that your immersion concerned customers will love (and all I want in return is a copy of those outfits in game; For that I'd work for free.  So what is your excuse?)
    <3 Emily
    PS:
    Instead of these RNG screenshot contests, why not let some of your customers submit concepts for new pearl costumes that could then be voted on by the community, with the winners having their design featured in game, and as a prize, they get a free copy of said costume for their trouble.

  4. Emily Estelle added a post in a topic Spring Tulips Screenshot Contest [Winners Announced]   

    The "winners" of this last event are.... Well, you can tell they were randomly chosen.  And with the number of people who don't want to put their Facebook public and post game shots on it, you thought it'd be a good idea to do it again?  Free advertising, I get it, but that doesn't make it any less crap.  Why would anybody with brains bother to participate in an RNG contest, that forces them to advertise for you on their own social media? (They wouldn't) but I guess these events aren't catering to that demographic are they...

  5. Emily Estelle added a post in a topic Cherry Blossom Screenshot Contest [Winners Announced]   

    Its just some transparent attempt to attempt to get more customers by getting us to do their Facebook advertising for them.  No thanks.  I don't use Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, and don't intend to start... so hopefully they don't make it mandatory for participation in events.

    Stuck patching, 72%
    Is anybody else having issues getting the latest update? Launcher is stuck at 72%, and has been for ages... I'm just leaving it for now, but was curious.

    Maybe they should get rid of the error message and just let us bounce back to the start screen until it actually loads... Have they not thought of that option? I'm assuming not...

    Character won't load
    I keep getting knocked back to the start screen when my character tries to load in.  Once upon a time you could ignore the message saying you lost the connection, and just select the start option again and it would usually load in successfully on the second or third try.  But now the other options are disabled so the game just closes and I can't log in.  So they nerfed the one work around for the constant server disconnects?  WHY???  Now I literally can't log in AT ALL. I mean... at all.  So is there a way around this? Otherwise Daum might want to consider changing things back to how they were (even yesterday) instead of making it so you HAVE to acknowledge the error message (thus closing the game.)  I don't like that I've paid money for, and spent money on, something that I suddenly can't play.

    Its almost as if we, as a culture, have no respect for any culture but our own, and expect the rest of the world to adopt our way of being, thinking, and speaking for our convenience.
    Oh wait, it is that.

  15. Emily Estelle added a post in a topic Patching Stuck | Character Slot Issues - 12/1/2016   

    Yeah same problem... Launcher stops updating at 48%.  Speed slowly dropping to nothing, estimated wait time climbing.  I haven't got the free time required to troubleshoot this, and just won't re-download the entire game, so I'll just try again another day and hope they've fixed it.  I did expect a lot of issues today, though I had hoped I'd at least be able to log in and look over my belongings to make sure everything transferred.  Seems I'll have to wait for that though.
    ************Oddly, right after I wrote this it has resumed downloading, so just leaving it sit even though it looks like it isn't doing anything *may* work.
