  1. GM_Horizon added a post in a topic Connection with the server has been lost   

    Hey there,
    It is possible that your graphics card is not able to handle the load of the game. You can see the model of your graphics card by using DxDiag:
    Open your start menu.Search for "DxDiag". (If you are using Windows 10, you can type it in immediately after opening the start menu)Open DxDiag and let it finish the analysis.Go to the "Display" tab. ("Display 1" if you have multiple monitors)The name of your graphics card is shown at the "Device" box.If your graphics card name contains the word "Intel", then unfortunately this means your system is using an integrated graphics card and is unable to load the game assets.
    You can find the minimum system requirements for Black Desert Online here:

  2. GM_Horizon added a post in a topic Keyboard randomly not working?   

    Hey there!
    Does this happen when you alt tab when entering/during loading screens by any chance? If so, this is caused by the immediate switch of windows before the game can properly "reload" your key assignments. You can solve this by focusing back into the game (click or Esc button), then alt tabbing out (desktop works fine, just make sure to click somewhere outside of the game so it loses focus), and alt tabbing back in.
    Let me know if this is the case ;D

  10. GM_Horizon added a post in a topic Connection Issues   

    Hey there,
    We are aware of how widespread this issue is and we are currently collecting data in order to resolve it. We are getting reports stating that the flush DNS + reset TCP/IP method works permanently for some, only a single time for a few, and not working at all in others. Do keep in mind that this is not a permanent solution we offer, rather than an suggestion, feedback of which will also guide us towards the root of the issue.
    Additionally, I'd like to thank you for spending some of your time to provide feedback for us, and while there is no definite solution I can give you at this moment, I can assure you that the issue is being investigated. If there is any more valuable information you think would contribute to the solution of this issue, please let me know by sharing it here or sending me a PM.

    Connection Issues
    We are aware that some players are experiencing connection issues, ranging from "Failed to connect" errors to disconnecting after a few minutes of in-game time. These errors might occur due to malfunctions with the your DNS and TCP/IP protocol.
    Most operating systems and DNS clients will automatically cache IP addresses and other DNS results, this is done in order to speed up subsequent requests to the same hostname. Sometimes bad results will be cached and therefore need to be cleared from the cache in order for you to communicate with the host correctly. 
    In order to clear your DNS cache, please follow these steps:
    - Open the start menu and type "cmd" in the search bar. If you are using Windows 8.1/Windows 10, simply type "cmd" after opening the start menu.
    - Right click on Command Prompt and click "Run as administrator".
    - Type in the command "ipconfig /flushdns" (without the quotes).
    - If the command was successful, you will see the message "Successfully flushed the DNS Resolver Cache".
    Additionally, you can also reset your TCP/IP using the following command in the Command Prompt (keep in mind, you will need administrator rights):
    netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt
    *Make sure to restart your computer after running this command.
    TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol) is the basic communication language or protocol of the Internet. When you are set up with direct access to the Internet, your computer is provided with a copy of the TCP/IP program just as every other computer that you may send messages to or get information from also has a copy of TCP/IP. Sometimes, TCP/IP settings might be improperly configured or corrupted, and will need to be reset.
    Please do let us know if the suggestions above remedy the issues for you.
