  2. Post on Computer Jargen in Off-Topic

    By Felyni, posted
    Morning all, 

    I'm currently looking into what I can upgrade with my computer, and make it run a bit better. (Most of the parts are 6-7 years old)
    I run BDO, imo "decently" I get 17-20fps in towns, which doesnt bother me to much, i have been noticing some graphic glitches recently, with textures on horse manes looking weird.

    Now I am not tech savvy, I can install/replace/ re-program things but when it comes to terminology(ssd, HDD, duel cores,,etc) i'm at a loss.

    My Current Specs:
    (If i'm missing something please let me know)

    (C:)= 581 GB (335gb free)
    Operating System: Windows 10 Home-64bit
    BIOS Date: 03/12/2012 Ver: 02.10
    Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2500k CPU @3.30GHz (4 CPUs), ~3.3GHz
    Memory: 8192MB RAM (8gb)
    DirectX Ver: 12
    PSU: TX850 corsiar

    Name: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770
    Approx. Total Memory: 8136 MB
    Current Display Mode: 1920 x 1080(32bit)(60Hz)
    Monitor: ASUS MX279

    Starting off with the GPU; What's a good card to upgrade to? I like NVIDIA. 
    Or can i use my current card and install another card? i remember reading somewhere that my computer can support duel GFX cards; if so does that help any? And whatever else i can upgrade~

    All input/suggestions are welcome! 

    Thank you!

  3. Hi,
     I am having an issue that I cannot see other players skill effects, even thought i have "Remove others' effects" and "Remove distant ones' effects" disabled.
     Deleting my game cache like the website suggested fixed it for a very short amount of time and then it just stopped displaying them again.
     Is there a fix to this known bug?
    Any more info you need, just ask
  4. Im skilled 3 cooking how do i lvl it up fast ? (dont be vague)

  5. Post on Mentor for economy needed! in Guides

    By Veryfunny123, posted
    Hi Fellas! 

    Who is so good that he can spent time to teach others?
    I am serious about that cause I just returned from BDO after a 6 months paus. Before I was playing on US and managed to get 2 chars on 57 and 2 more on 55. That was last year August.
    Now I returned and I could use a little help in setting up a good economy.
    I want to be clear about that, I am looking for someone to establish a long-term partnership. I used to play with a friend who spent like me over 600€ in this game.
    We separated our focus so everyone could benefit from the other and get really good in one thing or update the other if something new came up. It was really cool and fun.

    This friend is no longer playing so I give it a try here.

  6. So, I can't seem to get to this soldier I'm supposed to find? The marker looks like it's on top of or in this tower thingy, but I can't seem to get up there. Any help?

  10. Post on Characters lost in Technical Issues

    By atlacy, posted
    Hello. So Ißll be short and wonßt waste your time:
    When I wanted to log in today it told me to choose a family name. I was like... "okay thats bad" and then when I did there were NOP characters left. 
    I activated the deleting of my tamer yesterday but I had 5 other charactes. Now - where on earth are my characters?

    Never mind: it is because I changed the servers from us to eu. Well thats some bad scripting I guess, or why would you do region-locked accounts?
  11. Where can i get Red Coral at? i cant find it is there a good spot to find it? http://bddatabase.net/us/item/4476/
  12. Bought the game a while ago, decided to play it again (so kinda new not over level 30 yet), my computer seems to be lagging with a jitter when doing anything from moving or fighting, even on near lowest settings, and I'm running an:
    AMD FX 8350
    GTX 970 Nvidia
    8gb Ram
    Was wondering if there were ways to fix this? I've heard of people with similar builds doing just fine, but mine seems to be dropping fps out of the blue. Any settings or tweaks i could do to computer?
  13. Please link GMs/CMs to for senpai to notice.

    I escaped, made a ticket, etc. It is possible to die in the sea under; you will not lose stuff since you are in the arena, but you have to use the escape function.
  14. Hi, i need help im downloading the game, and have this error 2001, and i have a 50% of the game downloaded   How i can fix it? ty for ur answer
  15. So, I've been running through the game and got to the Harpy questline from the Black Spirit. I got to the second quest in the Karanda Ridge parts, where the black spirit asks you to go investigate the nests. There are plenty of nests on the ground that I can see filled with eggs that I can break, but other than that I can't seem to find any other way to interact with them. Am I missing something? Is there somewhere specific I have to go?
    Any help would be appreciated.
    EDIT: Realized they were trees. Whoops.
  16. I received a T5 horse, one week ago, but once I log in today, he isn't anywhere to be found, he don't even appear in the stable as injured, what should I do to recover him?
  17. As some of you are coming about, that time of year, I was curious about what we get for a reward.

  20. hi guy the problem is this evrytime i choose a character or i try to create a new one after a while the game stopped and i return in the desktop , please help me i really wanna play this game
  21. I bought BDO yesterday let it install overnight, in the morning closed the launcher because I had to go to school. Tried to find the game, can't find it in files and it does not appear in the uninstall menue
  22. Hey guys I am a ninja level 56 with 104/121/114 stats. Where can i grind to get good silver and good drops so I can make faster money to buy better gear?
  23. I was reading on the pet's special skills. Before I ask which is better for me, I was wondering how important their unique skills were anyways. It seems the radius is pretty small to begin with. I want to know how important the special skill is to the use of the pet before I go feeling torn between pet types.
    I basically narrowed it down to Hawk, Dog, or Cat. While gathering has been cool so far, I haven't gotten to a point in the game where its really been beneficial. I would like to know how much gathering comes in later in the game- or is that just user preference? Also, with the Dog, (i love dogs) their skill is alerting you to flagged players. This is just when you have PvP mode on, yes? So, would that make the skill obsolete to me if I didn't use PvP often? And finally, Hawks alerting you to elite mobs is nice (mostly so i don't run into them on accident or until I'm ready) but I hear they have a slower loot time than the others and that's kind of important to me. If it helps at all to the decision, I play a Sorceress and I'm pretty low level, so I don't yet know what is most important once I cap. 

    Thank you! 
  24. So after a long time coming back to meh boi black desert and receiving an issue about not being able to connect when clicking start as the launcher ask's. I gave black desert a little while to patch and chill and sort what I would have hoped its shit out annndd sadly for me even after a year (about) I've come back to it and well here is the image of the day kids I've opened my ports up to 8888 - 8889 done that sneaky version.dat fix and basically killed and upper cuted  my firewall soo .I would like to have help its not even funny now considering I've also paid for the game way back as well

  25. I've been trying to login to the server all day. I've already posted on the Tech forum but there has been no response since early this morning.

    I've re-downloaded and installed the game, I've deleted the cache, I've tried the USA servers, different characters, new characters... Nothing works.

    When I try to login on any character, the loading progress bar appears, fills up and then disconnection. Rinse and repeat. What the hell is going on?

    Can I please get some help? Does this game actually have support staff that work weekends? I'm not the only one having this issue and I've seen no response or acknowledgement from the Staff. I'm at the end of my patience.
