That came directly from a GM....But yea I don't like it either, so I'm glad I didn't need to do this.

I know it did. Giving technical advices about things they have no idea about, is making people risk their computer's health. It is a very serious subject. None should take these actions.

i dont plan on doing anything but using the launcher, no extra hoops jumped through to play again. if they cant fix it i uninstall and move on, simple as that. the launcher worked pre patch, not my job to make it work now.

Great, I did my daily attendance reward, but I didn't get the stones. (They're not in my inventory or my mailbox)
Maybe I need to relog for them to show up

A friend of mine is waiting since 6 hours now to re-download 41GB -- the whole game again -- yes this was a result of just powering on the computer and running the launcher -- it is now at 56%.

If they can't write code, they should make it free at least -- not that it would make everyone interested still.

FYI, all you have to do is delete the version.dat file from BDO and you can download the patch 100%.  It's not rocket science and I found a fix after a Google search which took me all of 10 seconds to find.

Wrong.  Open the directory where you installed Black Desert Online and scroll all the way to the bottom and you will see "version.dat" which you can select and delete.  It isn't rocket science.

Kuno / Ninja Awakening is next Awakening next Week so just wait till then.

Once all Awakening are released they take care of the balancing of all the classes anyways.

It appears that it is rocket science for the developers though. They cannot automate it for the users so that they won't need to become technicians of bdo.

Is it possible it's a hidden file on some people's systems?

Right.  Now you are just trolling ----- off. 

Salty because you were shown the error of your ways, LOL!

Apparently, you are an expert programmer. Perhaps you could apply for a job with the company and fix the issues you feel are really simple to fix.

However, this patch is a complete unreasonable demand. It forces me now to completely redownload the godzillian of game data again. This really should never happen with an installed game.

No, because I run my own company which is in no way interested to have customers such as them either.

Sure you do, bud.  You are just salty because you aren't bright enough to figure out how to fix your issue.

You be happy with your skills in fixing issues by deleting a single file. Allow us the rest to face the real issues. I am proud of you by the way.

could you pls be a bit more precise WHICH part did solve it? Cus its a bloody long walkthrough... and me for example dont even find a "version.dat" thats related to BDO.

I disabled antivirus and whitelisted the whole bdo folder. Patch went through first try.

Wrong - This just means your antivirus is shit and prone to false positives. Get rid of that malware - eh - "anti"virus crap.

No, because I run my own company which is in no way interested to have customers such as them either.

Is your company a gold farm ?

However, this patch is a complete unreasonable demand. It forces me now to completely redownload the godzillian of game data again. This really should never happen with an installed game.

From what I can gather, this looks like it happens to those who try to open the client again shortly after it says "complete", but it is still writing to the drive.  Additionally, could be malware or antivirus scanner locking the files triggering a failure in the patch on launcher launch / game launch - to re-download.

Ok guys, I've been trying to make it work since 11:30 and until now I wasn't able. It may look stupid, but here is what I did to fix the corruption file at 67% problem after almost 6 hours trying:

 

1 - Erased the file "config.filecheck" or "version.dat" from your game folder.

2 - Turned off Windows Firewall.

3 - Opened in admin mode.

 

And hell yes, IT WORKED.

 

Wish you all good luck with this problem, see you ingame ;)

10 seconds ?  that's impressive given latency, TTFB, page download speed, local rendering, then reading, repeating the process on most likely a crappier server with no fail-over (than google itself), and that's not even accounting for all the adware tracking that happens even with AdBlock/etc.

If you can - Google "black desert online " + more keywords (let alone including typing time), wait on spam, read through potentially hundreds of titles that the majority are outdated information, then read through each sub page you think is good (including their bad load times), in all of 10 seconds to find the information - You definitely deserve a cookie !! - in fact, here -- take this cool cookie (it's cool because it has shades so you might not be able to recognize it)

Image result for cookie

I had issues with file corruption at 48%, 60% and 67%. I fixed this problem with disabling both antivirus, windows firewall AND deleting the last .paz file i found from the logs. For me i think it was PAD004427.paz. After that i ran the patching, got again corrupted at 67%. Repair after that, was much smoother and faster. After repair got 100mb patch compared to 1,04 or 1,41 gb. 

 

Hope this helps.

I can concur that these so called "anti-virus" programs (which have become bloated malware/adware/resource pigs) - things which by comparison, wrapping your computer in saran-wrap has a higher probability of actual "protection" - are the cause of the interference.  Toss the AV crap, just use the core with windows which is targeted, not some adhoc heuristical scanner - saving valuable game resources, and just use common sense + block all ads when browsing / downloading.
