    Plunge is as fanboy as they come. I am trying to determine whats causing these issues legitimately and all they do is white knight.

    I am going to avoid your personal attack statements and refer back to your previous post.
    You stated: 
    " I could go through them all and show you how people have different solutions that have worked for them "
     
     
    I am requesting you stick to your word and do what you stated in the sentence above. Unless and until you do what you said you'd do I cannot continue the discussion with you. You've said you'll do something and now I am asking you to be a man and do what you said. I want you to go through all of them like you stated. Each and every one of them.
    Until that point you have no argument.
    Put on your big boy pants and back up what you said you'd do, start here from the original post list: http://sacredhaven.org/vb4/forums/archive/index.php/t-267.html,

    You'll need to go through each of the threads entirely to fully understand, then explain the links in the OP regarding the 100% load when in sys tray, why XIGNCODE3 is involved, the hundreds in the reddit thread with the 100% cpu load issue and why it's all intermittent and unexplained.
    For sake of time on my end I gave you two links below if you can debunk all the forum posts listed I will rest my argument. You need to go through 100% of them and give explanations about them, especially the 100% load, that is the biggest issue and points to a possible embedded program or strange XIGNCODE3 behavior. Click the link below.

    I can tell you're angered now and are arguing with passion. Given that you are emotionally compromised I will give you some time to cool down so that we can have more gainful discussion in the future.

    I have no idea why you're asking for sources when I listed numerous sources in my original post. Perhaps you just skimmed it, only read a few sentences, or didn't see it.

    There's plenty more where that came from but I am not going to link anymore. You can google it and see for your self. Also, you seem hostile and fanboyish so if you continue to respond with hostility I will ignore your comments in the future especially if they are ignorant like "asking for sources" when I listed them and then you accusing me of saying it's my own experience.
    Yes, something isn't right. The users I pointed out in my OP are stating this happens when it's in Sys tray as well. It has to be doing something sometimes. Perhaps its intermittent or based on you idling in game it begins to mine. It's also possible XIGNCODE3 is starting some scan that is creating heavy load at random times. (The 100% CPU fix revolves around XIGNCODE3 files which is strange.)

    Perhaps they have an explanation for the strange HDD log writing, excessive CPU/GPU load, and intermittent Low-FPS on high end computers.
    There could be an explanation to all of it. If there isn't one then it would seem suspicious to me.
    Thank you for your input, Boob.

    Hamletswords, this thread is a very serious request for clarification regarding computer hardware and this game.
    I would request, if you have any compassion for people, that you stop trying to derail this thread.

    I would like clarification from Daum or its representatives denying that bitcoin miner or unnecessary "information mining" software is not bundled into Black Desert Online or XIGNCODE3. If they deny the existence of such a program I would like an explanation on Hard Drive Thrashing SSDs as well as the aforementioned 100% load issues and why they exist in their product.
    This documents the log file HDD thrashing of SSDs:

    It has come to my attention that some individuals have experienced significant problems with their PCs or have noticed increased CPU load to 100%. This extreme CPU and GPU load is reminiscent of a bitcoin miner. Information to fix it is found here proving it is an issue: https://www.reddit.com/r/blackdesertonline/comments/33xzhp/black_desert_launcher_batch_file_for_64_bit_users/
    Moving on, the RU BDO players have experienced similar issues where they realized a file known as Thorn.exe was creating a 100% load on their CPU and determined it was a mining software for bitcoin. Please visit this Russian site and translate it for explanation: http://insane.su/forum/topic/40886-bitcoin-вирус-встроен-в-русскую-версию-black-desert/
    Translation: Finalists PTA Russian version of the Black Desert Online complain about the serious deterioration of the performance of the game, which can be observed even from the owners of powerful computers.Analysis of system processes that stress the GPU, has shown that the cause is a system file unremarkable Thorn.exe, which is installed along with the client GameNet game from the publisher. The behavior of a typical Thorn.exe the Bitcoin-miner, forcing players to work on computers miscalculations Bitcoin blocks, allowing fraudsters to profit from their wallets.
    In the following threads users with high-end computers are stating their performance is extremely low: http://forum.blackdesertonline.com/index.php?/topic/29550-low-fps-with-980ti/ http://forum.blackdesertonline.com/index.php?/topic/41567-low-fps-after-recent-patch/ http://forum.blackdesertonline.com/index.php?/topic/39354-fps-drops/ http://forum.blackdesertonline.com/index.php?/topic/36575-low-fps-on-solid-pc-build/ http://black-desert.com/forums/index.php/Thread/11969-Improve-FPS/  http://forum.blackdesertonline.com/index.php?/topic/69561-insanely-low-fps/ http://forum.blackdesertonline.com/index.php?/topic/33090-low-fps-w980ti-sc/  http://forum.blackdesertonline.com/index.php?/topic/27521-help-low-fps-cant-seem-to-go-more-than-about-30-fps-even-on-low-settings/ http://forum.blackdesertonline.com/index.php?/topic/35520-low-fps-with-decent-gpu/

    User states that GPU going to full load while game is in Sys tray: https://www.reddit.com/r/blackdesertonline/comments/48bli2/psa_dcing_while_game_is_in_sys_tray_with_display/
     
    The evidence above is circumstantial and many more forum threads can be linked but given that the issues has arose in the RU client and the problems are similar along with the game promoting "AFK" play I am requesting an official response/denial from Daum or its representatives that there is no data mining/bitcoin mining from the game known as Black Desert Online or the third party program XIGNCODE3.
    I would like a detailed explanation of the circumstances surrounding low FPS on high end machines, strange high-usage of CPU, and the unnecessary abuse of computer hardware as demonstrated by the End Users in the threads above. The circumstances surrounding this point to the possibility that there may be a bit coin miner or something "similar" integrated into the client or XIGNCODE3 is scanning our computers excessively or without our knowledge.
    EDIT: There also exists an issue with excessive log writing to the hard disk that could be damaging to Solid-State Drives documented here: 
     

    https://www.reddit.com/r/blackdesertonline/comments/4ap8uh/psa_fix_for_the_log_file_issue/
     
    I am interested in knowing why this exists also and if there's any connection to a mining software integration with the SSD thrashing.
     
    Compiling the Evidence:
    Game encourages people to leave game running while AFK. This serves no legitimate purpose to a company.Massive amounts of users report low FPS on high-end rigs.Reports of 100% GPU load while game is in Sys TrayReports of 100% CPU load with a described fixRU Client found to have mining software in itStrange unnecessary log files being written to the hard drive especially when in "AFK" mode.

  12. Knowledge added a post in a topic How do you feel about Black Desert right now?   

    Thanks for the great posts. Now that the Q&A is over I wonder if people have changed their feelings?
