  1. I brought this game since 2 mouth never played because always had a dowload issue until now but the first time i joined i was like WTF really my computer cant handle this because i was always had like 20 lower fps even in optimazed mode so i was trying to find a solution but it wasnt a topic it was a comment my solution it said "I just know that black desert online had issues with nvidia  since the 362.xx so i decided to prove that i just download a lower version like 361.xx and install it IT WORK OMFG oh and yeah you should turn off the vsync that stuff is really a fps eater so now i have 40-50 in cities and 60 in the wild still dont know for boss fights because as i said im new but this is my experience with fps problems
    This is my own driver dont know for you guys is compatible
    My Specs
    Intel Core I5 4440
    HyperX 8GB RAM
    Geforce Gtx 750 ti
    64x Windows 7 Ultimate
  2. Hello,
    I recently upgraded my rig, my specs are:
    Windows 10 Home 64 bit,
    -Nvidia Geforce GTX 1070,
    -Intel i7-7700K 4.20GHz,
    -16GB RAM DDR4 3000Mhz,
    -Samsung SSD 850 EVO 500GB,
    however I still can't reach stable 60fps in this game, in Heidel not even 30fps. also getting random frame drops and horrible pop in. I tried nearly everything, upgrading drivers, messing with Nvidia settings and other fixes, nothing worked.
    I also have some sort of bug, when I click on my secondary monitor my fps instantly jump ~20frames higher reaching stable 60fps outside of cities. But when I click back into the game they fall back to 30~50.
    I don't know what to do anymore, messing with ingame settings does absolutely nothing for me, going from ultra + high end mode to optimization mode and everything low/off gives me arround 5fps. The only thing I want is to play this game on stable fps, to do nodewar without disabling effects and still run around with 20~30fps. Thanks for Helping
    looks like my text got screwed somehow ....

    Edit: Looks like I fixed it, after i placed my Windows 10 on my SSD, my HDD still had a Windows partition preventing me from doing windows updates and stuff (always failed to do so). So I unplugged it and installed the new Windows 10 Creators Update, now I run Smooth 60Fps without drops, 40-55 fps in Heidel. Hope this will help some of you with the same issues
  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. Hi all,
    I would like to share my research (not my very own) with you guys. To improve game performance especially for BDO.
    This is for NVIDIA graphics cards but can be usable for AMD cards too. *Not the NVIDIA settings*
    * I run BDO with max settings on 130-144 FPS. Even in cities and crowded places. Sometimes it drops below 120. *
    I will make some screenshots today later.

    My setup:
    CPU: i7-4790k 5Ghz
    GPU: GTX 1080 2.2Ghz
    RAM: 16GB 3Ghz
    Disk: SSD
    Network Interface: 1Gbps
    Network speed: 500/500 Mbit

    Some stuff we need to know:
    1. Game priority
    2. GPU usage
    3. GPU throttle

    1. Game priority is very low on this one. So your GPU will use only its default clock on (Minimal).
    2. GPU usage, from NVIDIA Settings. The GPU doesn't force its maximum performance. *It does not*
    3. GPU throttle? No throttle. It's basically not enough Power. Not enough juice.

    What we need to do is (trick) the game / GPU to force its maximum performance.
    How? Well, EVGA guys have an option to use K-BOOST. I don't have EVGA, I do have STRIX. So that K-Boost option isn't available.
    But I want to FORCE my GPU to have a maximum clock rate at any time. You can't do this on PASCAL cards, yet.
    So on your GTX 980 you can make a custom bios. But this is not the case.

    Now we are going to do some adjustments.

    Before we start.
    I have monitored my GPU behaviour and my systems. My GTX 1080 was running on 1.6Ghz Core Clock with BDO. After applying these configurations, It was on 2.2Ghz. A huge difference. But how?! Well, my GPU is overclocked *Boost Clock* to 2.2Ghz. Default (base clock) is 1.6Ghz. This game almost ran on 1.6Ghz everytime even with Overclock. So these tweaks actually cranks up your GPU by tricking to run on MAX Performance. That's all. And some other tweaks.
    And make sure you BACK-UP your register first!

    Network Throttling Index Gaming Tweak
    Works with all current versions of Windows from Vista to 8.1/10/2012 Server.
    Windows implements a network throttling mechanism to restrict the processing of non-multimedia network traffic to 10 packets per millisecond (a bit over 100 Mbits/second). The idea behind such throttling is that processing of network packets can be a resource-intensive task, and it may need to be throttled to give prioritized CPU access to multimedia programs. In some cases, such as Gigabit networks and some online games, for example, it is beneficial to turn off such throttling all together for achieving maximum throughput.
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Multimedia\SystemProfile]
    "NetworkThrottlingIndex"=dword:ffffffff (DWORD, default: 10, recommended: 10 for media sharing, ffffffff for gaming and max throughput, valid range: 1 through 70 decimal or ffffffff to completely disable throttling)
    It is only recommended to change this setting in saturated Gigabit LAN environments, where you do not want to give priority to multimedia playback.
    Reportedly, disabling throttling by using ffffffff can also help reduce ping spikes in some online games. Games that may be affected by this throttling: Source Engine games (TF2, Left 4 Dead, CS:S), HoN, CoD, Overlord series.
    System Responsiveness Gaming Tweak
    Exists in all versions of Windows from Vista to 8.1/10/2012 Server.
    Multimedia applications use the "Multimedia Class Scheduler" service (MMCSS) to ensure prioritized access to CPU resources, without denying CPU resources to lower-priority background applications. This reserves 20% of CPU by default for background processes, your multimedia streaming and some games can only utilize up to 80% of the CPU. This setting, in combination with the "NetworkThrottlingIndex" can help some games and video streaming. We recommend reducing the reserved CPU for background processes from the default of 20%.
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Multimedia\SystemProfile]
    "SystemResponsiveness"=dword:00000000  (default: 20, recommended: decimal 10 for general applications, 0 for pure gaming/streaming)
    Note: In Server operating systems (Windows 2008/2012 Server), SystemResponsiveness is set to 100 by default, denoting that background services should take priority over any multimedia applications.
    More Gaming Tweaks
    This section includes gaming-specific tweaks not listed in our general tweaking articles (and not implemented by the TCP Optimizer).
    In the same Registry hive as the above two tweaks, you can also change the priority of Games, compared to other types of traffic. These tweaks only affect games that communicate with e Multimedia Class Scheduler Service (MMCSS). Below is a list of the settings and default/recommended values:
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Multimedia\SystemProfile\Tasks\Games]
    "Affinity"=dword:00000000  (DWORD, default: 0, recommended: 0. Both 0x00 and 0xFFFFFFFF indicate that processor affinity is not used)
    "Background Only"="False"   (REG_SZ, default: "False", recommended: "False", possible values are True or False). Indicates whether this is a background task.
    "Clock Rate"=dword:00002710  (DWORD, default: 2710, recommended: 2710). The maximum guaranteed clock rate the system uses if a thread joins disk task, in 100-nanosecond intervals.
    "GPU Priority"=dword:00000008  (DWORD, default: 2, recommended: 8. range: 0-31). The GPU priority. Not used in Windows XP and 2003.
    "Priority"=dword:00000002   (DWORD, default: 2, recommended: leave alone if using "Scheduling Category" below, set to 6 otherwise for gaming, possible values are 1-8). The task priority, ranging from 1(low) to 8(high). Note  for tasks with Scheduling Category of "High", this value is always treated as 2.
    "Scheduling Category"="High"   (REG_SZ, default: "Medium", recommended: "High". possible values: Low, Medium, High)
    "SFIO Priority"="High"  (REG_SZ, default: "Normal", recommended: "High") The scheduled I/O priority, possible values are Idle, Low, Normal, or High.
    TCP Optimizer (Network optimization)
    While the SG TCP Optimizer is designed to give you the best possible throughput online, it can also help improve your gaming experience. There are, however a few subtle differences when optimizing for throughput/file transfer vs. gaming/reduced latency.

    To tweak your system for the best possible gaming performance, please follow these steps:

    1. Apply the Optimal Settings
    In the TCP Optimizer, set your advertised internet speed, choose the "optimal" settings, and "Apply" them (you can postpone the reboot for now).

    2. Set Network Throttling Index (This also can be set from Regedit)
    In the "Advanced" tab of the Optimizer, set the "Gaming Tweak - Network Throttling Index":
    NetworkThrottlingIndex: disabled:ffffffff
    SystemResponsiveness: gaming: 0 

    3. Disable Naggling (This also can be set from Regedit)
    In the "Advanced" tab, set the "Gaming Tweak - Disable Nagle's Algorithm": 
    TcpAckFrequency: 1
    TcpNoDelay: 1
    TcpDelAckTicks: 0

    4. Apply the Optimizer settings and reboot when prompted.

    Simple things we forget. Or maybe not.
    Set your Power Management on Max Performance. We did this in the NVIDIA Settings. But we have to do this on Windows too.

    This guide is totally safe because I do confirm. It cannot harm your PC. But before you do some tweaks in Regedit. Please make a backup if you don't like the outcome.
  5. Hey this is a techie / graphic settings with stuff like Nvidia Profile Inspector`s more adanced settings, I recently tested out Steep and tried to add Hbao+ instead of it`s Fxaa+, however I had so much lag with an overclocked asus-rog-1080-gtx-strix-8gb-gaming and I went back to Fxaa+. Actually I have never heard of Fxaa+ just the normal Fxaa, and still curious what level Fxaa+ is at compared to vxao and hbao+. Anyway at certain times of the day or night I see some big graphical changes in Black Desert Online but at a later time it disappears. How is BDO optimized with Hbao+? I heard somewhere that high end mode + ssao was actually hbao+, but I cannot confirm that. Ambient occlusion is so well done in some games, but a standard ssao is simply a waste of resources on computers in my opinion. Please share your settings inc. Inspector ones if you use it. I would like this to be a share and learn, and squeezing out extra FPS with even better graphic fidelity, with better user customization! ^^
  6. Hello,
    Sorry for my english,I'm french
    I hadn't play for a long time but i wanted to play again to BDO.It was working fine on my computer.
    I updated the game and now i can't play to it!
    When I launch the game, after the Kakaogames screen,the screen turn white and the process doesn't respond.
    I waited for 15-20 minutes and that doesn't change anything.
    I asked forum membre for help and we think the issue come from NVidia drivers. (http://forum.blackdesertonline.com/index.php?/topic/133910-ecran-blanc-lancement in french)
    I have a laptop with a chipset and a graphic card (NVidia GeForce GTX 765M) but the graphic card isn't detected by the launcher.
    I uninstalled nvidia drivers with  DDU (Display Driver Uninstaller) and after the reboot i was able to launch the game on my chipset (it's not playable beacause of perfomances issues but at least it launches !).I reinstalled NVidia drivers through GeForce Experience software and the white screen is here again, my graphic card still not detected.
    Can you help me ? ^^
  7. To prevent potential problems in running Black Desert Online and not only, here are a few tips to enjoy a smooth gameplay. Games use different kind of softwares, installments and frameworks connected to your hardware and operating system. Your video card is important, but also your processor or your RAM(memory). Select your apropiate operating system and have theese checked:
     Keep video card updated to the latest drivers(mostly thru updates a lot of fixes can be done): NVIDIA page : http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us, AMD  page: http://support.amd.com/en-us/download ;Direct x end user runtime installer,  most games use specific files from other Direct X builds, so is good to have them: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=35 ;Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015 : https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=48145 ;Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 :  https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=21 ; Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5 : https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=30653 ;NVIDIA PhysX System Software: even you  think you don’t need this because you don’t use nvidia hardware, is good to have this also checked: http://www.nvidia.com/object/physx-9.16.0318-driver.html. Have fun, enjoy your playtime.
    P.S. : Sorry if double post or inappropriate section, a moderator can have a look.
  8. If you're capped at 64 FPS in game and you used to get 100+ FPS in some places, you might want to check your GeForce Experience overlay (Alt+Z).  See if you have the "Instant Replay" turned off.  If so, try turning it "ON" because it might just fix your 64 FPS cap in game.  It worked for me.  Let me know if this helps.  
  9. I know this is off-topic, but on my last one no one responded, and this place is more populated so here I go.
    Whenever I have trouble with my computer handling a game I use a graphics processor (Specifically Nvidia).
    But it has a shield and has an additional option when try to run the game. Run as administrator is that option. 
    And when I try to run the game, it says I don't have the privilege to select the graphics processor in the menu!
    Anyone else ever encounter this issue? Aion has the same thing btw.
    Whenever I play GW2, Nvidia works just fine, so please help.
  10. Hello everyone. I need help. When I installed the game, I realized it was lagging, so I exited out, selected run with graphics processor, went for my nvidia, and then this happened. ''You don't have the privilege to use this graphics processor in this menu". This confused me as this works with GW2. What do I do? How can I refine my experience? Thank you to any who try to help me.
    BTW, I tried to turn of the administrator function but that didn't help.
  11. So awhile ago for reasons unknown I started losing FPS drastically. I changed settings high and low and realized that it didn't help as much.

    These are some of the solutions I used on 1/27/2017 to go from 20 fps on all low settings to 40 fps on medium to high settings

    Problem 1#: Windows 10 Anniversary update
    Issue: Apparently a patch called the Windows 10 Anniversary update created a huge issue with FPS throughout many different games due to one simple problem which was the xbox application's GameDVR was turned on randomly.

    How to solve this problem the simple way
    Start Xbox application (literally search for Xbox)
    Log in into and turn off GameDVR

    How to solve this problem without an Xbox account (the way I had to do it)
    "For those that don't have a Microsoft account or can't remember the details of it or whatever, you can disable GameDVR this way:
    Open Registry Editor (Run > regedit)Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\System\GameConfigStoreSet the value of DWORD "GameDVR_Enabled" to 0Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Create key "GameDVR"Create DWORD 32bit called "AllowgameDVR" and set to 0"

     (The GameDVR problem solution goes to this wonderful redditor and his thread: https://www.reddit.com/r/DotA2/comments/4xu9vi/bad_fps_after_latest_win10_anniversary_update_got/ )

    Now that probably helped alot if it was on. That literally made me jump from crap to greatness after adjusting some graphical settings and just cruising around.

    Problem #2: Nvidia

    Go to Nvidia Control Panel
    Go to 3D Management settings
    Then under Global Settings turn on Multi-Threading, V-Sync, and Triple Buffering

    Note: Some people don't like Triple Buffering, but yeah that their opinion.
    Some games don't use multi-threading since they only use 1 core like Planetside 2.
  12. Hello there! i'm dev, a common player, in these days i'm facing a famous problem  "the non-native screen resolution".
    Case: Play in full screen at lower resolution, but when selected the lower resolution the game presents black bars.

    Who should read this guide:
    Users with a laptop and nvidia (84xm .. 95xm and later)Users with optimus (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nvidia_Optimus)Solution (at least for me):
    Run the game "FullWindowed"

    Press ALT-TAB to return on windows and right click on intel settings (near the clock/battery status) then
    1) Graphics Options -> 2) Panel adaptation -> 3) Resize to full screen (select)

    Now your screen size change and u can alt-tab on Black Desert! hf, arma.

  13. Post on Why FPS so low? in Technical Issues

    By Lewana, posted
    Okay so I always have around 20/30 FPS (max I had is 35 I think)
    The thing is... my specs are... 
    Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700HQ CPU @ 2.60GHz 4 Cores / Video Card NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M 4GB DDR5 / RAM 8.0 GB
    So I don't understand. Shouldn't I get more FPS?
    I tested a lot of things that I saw in other threads (turned off vsinc in nvidia panel, changed the games setting, etc) Yes my Nvidia is selected in the launcher, yes high-end mode is unchecked, yes my laptop is on high performance mode.
    Anything else to try lol?
  14. Post on FPS DROPS in Off-Topic

    By darioz, posted
    So, I played this game on RU server for like 1-2weeks(6 months ago), and game worked perfectly with like 60fps with settings of high/slightly high and everything else ON...Only in crowded areas like cities it dropped lower.
    So at the moment I am getting like 25-42fps no matter on what settings I play and as well my screen freezes really ofter .. Everytime I press escape>settings...picture freezes for like 3-4sec. I just start combat(grinding), picture freezes for like 3-4sec... I don't know what to do, I just know it's unplayable...
    So, difference? I played then on Windows 10 (64 bits), now I am playing on Windows 7 (64bits) ... 
    I tried to upgrade drivers, it didn't help me at all(uninstalled old one and upgraded).... As well I tried running game in many different compatibility modes, and I installed game for like 2 more times in hope it will work better.(uninstalled and downloaded it again) ... I tried playing fullscreen, windowed... no difference ... (my monitor is 60hz, so don't suggest me anything about it)
    My PC spec(but it shouldn't matter, because it worked perfectly) : Asus r9 280, fx8320, 8gb 1600mhz, hdd 2tb toshiba ... ( i even tried to overclock my specs, it makes no difference )
    Any suggestions? I tried everything I saw on forums
  15. Holy cow. I just don't get how this is not yet fixed.
    I cannot use full screen (dedicated or full window borderless) at anything other than my screens native resolution of 1920x1080. On Windows 8 I could at least do 1280x720 full borderless and it would fill the screen. Now that I have Windows 10, it simply shows anything other than 1920x1080 as a box with black border. It somehow even manages to do this with borderless window full screen mode, making my whole dekstop 1280x720 but within a 1920x1080 environment.
    NOT ONE other game I have exhibits this behaviour, all of them not only can go true full screen without issue, but also window borderless at any resolution I choose. I can have high details in this game on my laptop (i7-4700 + GTX760m optimus system) and run at a reasonable framerate, but not at 1920x1080. It requires me to drop to low and use "upscaling" in order to acheive a similar framerate and looks like dog doo in comparison to 1280x720 with the details up.
    The Intel GFX is set to scale up all resolutions to fill the screen and works perfectly in the 30+ other games I have installed, yet somehow BDO manages to steadfastly do it's own thing no matter what I try.
    I don't even care if I can get dedicated full screen. I just want to be able to use a lower resolution and have it fill the screen. Making the desktop resolution 1280x720 first DOES NOT FIX IT, unbelievably it still will make the screen 1920x1080 and slap a 1280x720 picture right in the middle. How is that even possible? BECAUSE something is very wrong with how resolutions are handled in this game. Fix it PLEASE or tell me how to fix it.

  16. windows 10 anniversary update + nvidia = 50% FPS drop
    if you update to windows 10 anniversary update and have NVidia card you will drop about half of FPS in black desert
    But not Just "black desert" its other games as well if start google it lot people finding same problems with other games
    I install "windows 10 anniversary update" and I went for 48-44fps too  22  and 18 fps with BDO
    I "rolled back" to  Normal  windows 10
    If you want roll back like I did
    here link how too
  17. My graphics card is a Geoforce GTX 980.
    TL;DR: The GeoForce Experience background video recording software feature called “Shadowplay” caused 99% disk usage issues. For perfectly normal game-play I've set GeoForce Shadowplay Mode to “Manual” (you can still use Alt+F9 top record). No disconnects now.
    On 5/15/16 I uninstalled and reinstalled BDO making sure to clean out all residual folders etc. As a result I only have about 20 log files. Here is an example of what my log says during those times when the game would lock-up with music playing in the background. NOTE: interested forum members please DO NOT willy-nilly copy and paste this information from your logs into the forum. The information contains your IP address.  Below I’ve changed my I.P. address to all zeros:
    I decided to record some system operations with Nvidia Shadowplay while BDO ran in the background. As you can see the Task Manager was open and the Resource Monitor was open. After about 2 hours I came back to the PC and hit Alt+F9 to stop and review the recording. That is when I saw the Nvidia Capture Server background process spike my disk at 99%:

    When I then opened the Geoforce Experience software the default setting for the video recording Mode was set to "Shadowplay+Manual". That means BOTH Manually initiated recordings - AND - the automatic Shadowplay background recording and processing were enabled.  Again, "Shadowplay" background recording was active in addition to any purposefully initiated video recordings I wanted to do by pressing Alt+F9.
    In other words: Unannounced to me, in the background, Nividia Capture Server was recording – then processing – every 20 minutes of my game-play. When it processed the background recorded footage this would spike my disk usage. I never saw this happening while playing of course. I would only hear the sound of my disk intermittently whirring up.
    I have set my Nvidia Shadowplay preferences to “Manual” Recording. NOTE; This still allows manual Alt+F9 recording; but it stops Nvidia Capture Server from automatically recording and processing game-play video every 20 minutes in the background. Since doing so I’ve not had a single disconnect.
    Can any other Nvidia Geoforce Experience users perform this test and confirm/deny? Its fairly simple:
    1-Open BDO and log in: For best results set an auto-loop through some crowded area like the busy intersection near the Horse Vendor in Heidel(sp?). Then place BDO in Windowed Mode and leave it running in the background.
    2-Open Task Manager: Select the “Process” Tab across the top. You should see Nvidia Capture Server running along with the rest of the background processes. You can organize the “Disk” Column by clicking on the tab at the top of this column. The reason for this is to see which program, or background process, has the greater disk usage at any given time. The processes should move and switch places on the fly of course.  
    3-Hit Alt+F9: This of course purposefully initiates video recording. Go ahead and record about 10-15 minutes of your desktop leaving it just as it is while watching the different processes move around in the Task Manager.
    4- End the recording session: After about 10-15 minutes end your recording session (Alt+F9 again) while watching the Task Manager and the disk usage of Nvidia Capture Server. When a recording session ends Nvidia Capture Server processes the recorded footage. It’s when NCS processes the recorded footage that I get these spikes. Now imagine that while you're playing BDO this is occurring every 20 minutes in the background without you having initiated any recording at all! This is what the Shadowplay functionality does when you GeoForce setting is set to "Shadowplay+Manual".
    If you see your disk spike (or increase) when hitting Alt+F9 to end the 10-15 minutes of recording (it does not have to go red) you may want to consider going into the Geoforce Experience and setting the Shadowplay preference to “Manual”. This “Manual” setting will still allow Alt+F9 video recording functionality but it will discontinue the automatic Shadowplay timed background recording and processing:

    As a normal gamer with disconnect issues this is another background process that I don’t need to have running. Especially since it spikes my disk.
    Since setting this to Manual I have had no BDO disconnects.
    Caveat: I'm keeping in mind though that the number of servers have increased during this past week of my trouble shooting phase. **crosses fingers**
  18. My native resolution is 3840 x 2160, but when I lowered it to 1960 x 1080 massive black bars appeared around my screen and shrunk my display area. Then when I exited the game these bars and small display continued to appear on my screen. Is this going to be fixed, am I first person with this problem?
    (First time on any kind of forums, have no idea what im doing just really need the help)
  19. Hey Guys,
    I was wondering i have an Nvidia GTX 765M 4GB Graphics Card
    16GB Ram, and  Intel Core i7  Cpu @ 3.00 GHZ
    and the game still lags at Low graphics Setting
    I play Battlefield  4 on High a nd Wither 3 On High and it works smoothly
    Can anyone help me resolve this
    im new to the forums so your welcome
  20. Been having issues with this game and FPS in general. My computer should be more than capable of handling the game at very high settings or more, but I am noticing the game is only using 8%-20% of the GPU utilization and slightly more than 20% for the CPU in most cases.

    Specs are below...

             Operating System: Windows 10 Pro 64-bit (10.0, Build 10586) (10586.th2_release_sec.160328-1908)
                     Language: English (Regional Setting: English)
          System Manufacturer: EVGA INTERNATIONAL CO.,LTD
                 System Model: To be filled by O.E.M.
                         BIOS: BIOS Date: 03/06/15 13:25:46 Ver: 05.06.05
                    Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-5820K CPU @ 3.30GHz (12 CPUs), ~3.3GHz
                       Memory: 32768MB RAM
              DirectX Version: 12
         2 GeForce GTX 980 in SLI

    The game is set to Very high settings with camera shake off and AA off as well as high performance mode off.
  21. so im a bit surprised theres been 2 patches but no mentioning of the black textured npcs bug on nvidias 9xx series cards ?
    the testing ive done is on a 980ti .what happens is >>>SOME<<<< npc's, (always the same ones) doesnt load ANY texture until you are 4-5 meters from them, this is 100% the same regardless of what graphical settings you use ingame or what settings you use in nvidia control panel. the only thing that can make it a bit better is by going back and using 361 driver instead of the new 364 driver, the new 364 driver suffer ALOT from this problem, id say 8 in 10 npcs while the older driver is more like 3 in 10 npc's. 
    ive been wondering if i should do a video of it but was told the devs already knew about this problem ? but nothing is getting fixed or even talked about.
    NOTE: my brother is using an old gtx680 on the new 364 drivers and DOES NOT HAVE THIS PROBLEM, it loads all textures flawless
    NOTE2: yes we use the same internet connection, not related to the network.
    spec: i7 6700k, 16gb ddr4 ,980ti , win10 pro x64,asus pro gaming z170 mobo, sb z series dedicated soundcard.
    edit 1: made a video of the problem
  22. So I'm currently downloading the game and when I went into the settings I noticed I'm not given an option to use my Dedicated card (Geforce 840m). Is there any way I can push it? I have the settings turned on so that it's my global card and also added it into the list to use the dedicated card.
  23. I just updated the latest NVIDIA drivers that came out 3/8/2016 and now when I load the world map in game half of the screen is whited out and jerking up and down. Anyone else having this problem? I tried installing previous drivers but having a problem doing that. Is there some setting I need to change?
  24. Introduction:
    So I'd consider myself pretty good with computer technology, but I figured I'd make this thread to see if anyone who knows more than me could help out. I have a pretty good computer build that runs current games at a solid 50-60 FPS, but it seems only with MMO's that I run into any problems.

    I figure this could be because of my CPU being AMD, but I'm also under the impression that my CPU should deliver better FPS for this game.

    Computer Specifications:
    GPU: NVIDIA GTX 970 (x2) SLI
    CPU: AMD FX-9590 Vishera 8-Core 4.7GHz
    RAM: Corsair Vengeance Pro 8GB (x2)
    PSU: EVGA SuperNOVA 1300W G2
    Motherboard: ASUS Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 AM3+
    OS: Windows 10 Home Edition 64-bit
    HDD: WD 2TB Black (game install drive), WD 1TB Blue (OS install drive)
    Monitor: ASUS 1920x1080p HD, 60Hz

    Nothing is overclocked, all standard. Aside from the CPU, which is delivered as an already overclocked CPU. My CPU's thermal margin leaves me with about 30-40 degrees of breathing room, all cores are being used but not by much. The game's CPU usage is around 35-40%. GPU's aren't ever overheating, my GPU's fan-speeds are about 50%-75% leaving both GPU's around 40-50 degrees together. I created an exception in the NVIDIA Control Panel to force SLI in the game, but the FPS didn't improve by much.

    Also, all my drivers are up to date.

    Game Settings:
    As for graphic settings, I run the game on max settings in Full Screen Windowed with the exception of high-end mode, because that mode ruins my FPS even more. I can't play the game in full-screen because of that weird bug that's going around with HDMI, where the game forces the monitor's refresh rate to about 23-24Hz.

    FPS Problems:
    Open areas are about 40-55 FPS
    Villages are about 20-35 FPS
    Cities are about 12-20 FPS

    Reducing the graphic settings to Low didn't seem to change the FPS at all, I figured that was also quite strange.

    Is this fairly normal? I know the game isn't well optimized, so maybe there's nothing I can do to improve the FPS any further? I'm hoping NVIDIA releases a profile soon for BDO, I imagine that would help.

    Oyé, oyé !
    J'ai acheté BDO en pensant que cela pouvait tourner comme GW2 au niveau performance. Mais rien !
    Les cinématiques ont des lags au possible ; sur la route, sans personne, ça passe à une vingtaine de FPS ; en ville, c'est juste atroce : ça tombe entre 1 et 4 au max. J'ai pourtant enlevé le v-sync. C'est jouable, mais c'est moche..
    Voici ma config : Intel Core i5-4570 3.20GHz / 8GO RAM DDR3 / Nvidia GeForce 9800 GTX +
    Dois-je changer la carte graphique ? Je ne sais vraiment plus quoi faire  
    Merci beaucoup pour votre aide !
