    The one in your Program Files(x86) directory....that one....make sure also that you have "show file extensions" set on the file name or if it is hidden, you might be accidentally naming it "blackdesert_launcher.exe.exe"....so if you have the extension hidden, just delete off the ".exe" part from what you renamed. Make sense?

    NVIDIA Lag Spikes [SOLVED!]
    Just want to share this in case anyone else goes through it. I have a GeForce GTX750 Ti. Since about 2 patches back, I have had the following problems....
    1. When starting game and Daum/Pearl logos fade, it fades to black and takes about 3-5 minutes for "start game" screen to show.
    2. While playing, almost every minute I would get a "stuttered"/double lag spike lasting from 3-10seconds....lag....unfreeze...lag.
    3. When trying to exit game, it would just freeze. I would have to end it via Task Manager.
     
    It was driving me nuts!...especially losing ropes when taming horses and a lag spike would hit.
    The fix? First....upgraded to newest vid card drivers(364.51)....which didn't help much(any?). Second....add Black Desert to my GeForce Experience application. THIS fixed it!!!
     
    Now the problem is that Black Desert shows on the GeForce Experience site but does not detect in the application. But someone found a way (posted on reddit). Simply change the name of your launcher...."Black Desert Online Launcher.exe" to "blackdesert_launcher.exe"....then refresh your game list in the GeForce Experience app and viola...it will see it!
     
    DO NOT launch the game from the GeForce Experience app. Just launch it from your newly renamed blackdesert_launcher.exe (you likely have a shortcut for it and you will need to change it's properties to use the newly named one). I also changed the setting in game to what the GeForce Experience app suggested as well.
     
    Now...game is running great once more!!! Hope this helps others.

  7. Natural Selection added a post in a topic game freeze   

    If you get to "loading" (Goblin being chased by black spirit) and crash, I had the SAME problem (posted solution elsewhere). Basically, find your "UserCache" folder and delete everything in it. Restart the game which will recreate your cache  correctly. Worked like a charm for me! (and yes, I tried all the other "fixes" before to no avail).

  8. Natural Selection added a post in a topic Need a restart   

    Live on the east coast....playing on Orwen....switched several channels....all the same issue.....3-10 sec lag spike about every minute or so and it is always like a "double" spike (lags...frees up for a few miliseconds...and then lag again). VERY annoying when taming a horse and you keep losing ropes!

    PC freeze/crash after Loading Screen at 100% [solved]
    This issue just started happening this past Monday (3/14 around 2pm cst). I played CBT2 and since launch....no issues. Monday, I was playing, took a break for lunch, came back and launched the game and the trouble started. I have repeated it several times while trying numerous "fixes". Nothing has worked.
    ISSUE/BUG
    From launcher after login, click "play".
    From initial screen, click "start game".
    Select character (any).
    Loading screen begins....black spirit chasing little guy across bottom from left to right.....as they get to the right side (ie. 100%)....the screen/window freezes....audio still going.
    Soon after, it gradually will freeze my entire computer up (no response).
    Have to manually turn off the PC and back on....which then goes through it's CHKDISK routine scanning for errors about every 3rd time of this.
     
    My machine...
    Windows 7-Ultimate (64 bit)
    NVidia GeForce 750 ti graphics card
    tried in windowed(border) and full window(non-border) mode (the latter had worked every time before Monday)
     
    attempted corrections (none worked):
    -uninstall and reinstall client (re-patching took forever!)
    -make NVidia profile for game
    -turn on/off v-sync for game profile
    -flush DNS
    -turn on/off firewall/anti-virus
     
    Client log gives some hints at what might be going on, but I could not say for sure.  It mentions memory allocation issue when trying to load various XML from my UserCache....I did notice some of them that the XML looks cut/corrupt/incomplete. So I will try to delete the cache files and re-try. Also wondering if this all might be due to some "hold over" of files from CBT2 that are now causing issues with the "live" version.
     
    SOLVED!!!
    Good thing I own a tech consulting company! haha
    The "user cache" is/was my problem!
    Upon inspecting the XML, I could see some looked incomplete/cut/not "well formed", so I suspected a corrupted file (possibly not written completely on disconnect?).
    Anyways, I cleared/deleted (actually moved to a "backup directory" until sure) my "UserCache" file from my user directory (ie. like "<your name>/Documents/Black Desert/UserCache" and restarted the game. As expected (thankfully!) with no cached data there, it rebuilt it itself.
    All works fine now and I am back in playing!

  13. Natural Selection added a post in a topic Patch Notes - March 16   

    No mention of technical fixes.....like why since Monday of this week, my screen after character selection shows the black spirit and little guy running to about 100% and then freezes up entire computer? Not just for me but SEVERAL people are reporting this over in the technical/support forum. Anything?

  14. Natural Selection added a post in a topic BDO crashes my PC.   

    Started happening to me yesterday (3/14) around 2pm CST. Can no longer launch game. It come us...I pick "start"....select my server...select my character...and as the launcher is going, it gets to about 100% and just hangs. It freezes my entire computer for a good 5 minutes after. *IF* I regain control, I have to end the application via task manager.
     
    Video care is NVidia GeForce 750 ti .....working just fine through CBT2 and launch up until yesterday
