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(let alone including typing time), wait on spam, read through potentially hundreds of titles that the majority are outdated information, then read through each sub page you think is good (including their bad load times), in all of 10 seconds to find the information - You definitely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 have a sweet internet connection, I can type over 100WPM, and I have great reading and comprehension skills.  Thanks for the cool cookie!

Salty because you were shown the error of your ways, LOL! (as an answer on the discussion bout a non-existant version.dat)

Im quite happy that i found somebody else having the same issues like me:

There is no version.dat ^^ it simply does not exist. Alongside with two more files that are supposed to be there, but they simply dont exist on my computer. Im quite happy that im not alone. Maybe some people should consider things that are different to what they are used to as a valid possibility before starting to insult other people. And some other people shoudnt react to such narrow-minded personalilties with insults neither *shrug*... aaanyways. The files arent there, cant rename them, nor can delete them, the problem though persists, → downloading the full game again *sigh* 6.2 gb already, yay!

By internet connection, you mean a microchip in your brain with wifi connectivity directly storing google results into memory cells sorting on the quantum level ? - and also having some electronic-telepathic link up where wifi is too slow so data is just swapped from the remote servers by mirroring their quantum states for instantaneous transmission ?

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.

I agree with everything u said. The real problem is the operating system itself as you already must know. Put on top of that lazy messy development and you end up talking about it here. You can see other games, or in my experience, all the other games do not need these tweaks on my systems.

Are you running the game as administrator?  If not, that may be your problem.

It is entirely possible the doctors have upgraded my brain after being in a very bad car accident a few years ago.

Yes, just scroll up to page 33, there you see the whole process of me getting upset, helpless, childish and ego-centred alongside with a full description of whats going on wif ma bloody launcher ^^. But... what does "running the game as administrator" has to do with the lack of existance of a file called "Version.dat"?

 

Aaaanyways: im off to ma RL-Book called Otherland of Ted Williams, quite interesting.

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


No, it really doesn't.

It's the GMs that said we need to disable the antivirus, I have no intention of doing that.

Quite possible.  Mastering this formula to enable synergy between the conversion of matter to binary and back again is the likely culprit for instantaneous data absorption at speeds only possible through probability computing where a computers existence is only needed to be probable, but not required to exist to obtain the information what what would probably exist in that computer if it probably existed.   :)

See above for "upgrade" details.

 


No, it really doesn't.

It really does.  See some neat articles outlining what they did in the past (when they worked), and what they do now ( br0|<3n ). You won't find a lot regarding this information because Google itself is an advertising and censoring cesspool subject to various agreements with your country/isp/other companies visibility to your country, and so on, however to understand why they are shit - you must compare what they do now, to what they did in the past, and how viable (realistic) is it to protect you from near a Petabyte of malicious code using a generic algorythm.  In the past, they would target and literally extract the virus code from the file, keeping the original program in tact and virus free. Now they just nuke the file if it's "suspicious" and flag it with generic W32 / whatever based on the heuristic match. It doesn't mean it even has a virus or is bad code.  Running windows clean with no 3rd party AV, and using some common sense combined with adblocking mechanisms/etc - is much safer than plugging a gaping hole in your computer granting express access to ABC antivirus company to deliver ads, malware, bad "updates" which have been known to be prone to false positives where deleting the file can have serious repercussions to the end user of the compute - and why wouldn't they delete it with a big glaring red box saying "BAD STUFF HAPPENING >>  [Fix Me] [Fix Me]"   (avast doesn't really give an option to do nothing. the "ignore" has been broken since day one and requires a form submission - yay).

Edit:  Also, "disabling" your antivirus, doesn't disable the gaping hole it leaves in your system.  Also, another great article on why not to use these garbage AV programs (specifically dealing with their 'browser' plugins to keep you 'safe' lol)  antivirus browser extensions actually make you less secure !

.. and now with windows 10 your OS itself is the virus. But hey, don't allow yourself to get off the train...

Not really no, it's because I'm not stupid.  The file wasn't in the folder, it wasn't hidden it didn't exist.  Confirmed by BDO support, so not salty just not bothered about people trolling on forums.

Really would have been nice if they had done a test BEFORE hand. Clearly they didn't because they would have stated that not only should your workers be 'idle', but that you should take a screen shot of your keybinds, your actions bars, and make sure your farms were in a state that you could replant them if need be.

 

...I now have to hope that some of the 241 items in my warehouse are the special seeds....FML.

Its really a pity, Mr Petrobvious cus im referring to you in an earlier post. I dont really understand the need to troll people tbh. If you cannot understand the problems that they currently have (might it be cus of minor brain-functions or simply because it is just the case LIKE THEY SAY), then why teasing em? What do you get out of that? I have a real hard time to believe that you personally profit in any sort of way if you destructivly critic the multiple appearing problems by simply neglecting em.

Yes, some of em might be user-bound, true.... still: some programm that is THAT easy killed by not touching em files at all is a problem, dont you think? At least i know for sure that i havent messed wif em files at all and im missing 3 of em mentioned in this threat, hence why i started to re-dl and deinstalled the remaining. And your attitude is not helping, so why bothering in the first place? Do you get some sort of positive ego-achievement for making people feeling rather displaced? Do you feel better by doing so, Mister/Misses Petruvius? What is your agenda...? I really would like to know, thx in advance.

Please update, thanks.

i hope you dont mind, but im using you in another context:

now im updating the client after deinstalling the whole game due to certain mentioned troubles. And im @ the same speed as before but now it seems to have an end.... hence the former mentioned problem about faulty clients and data simply vanishing etc still exists.

 

And i can definatly second the oppinions of ma former guys: If you HAVE TO DISABLE YOUR AV, then something is VERY BAD. ... youre code-monkeys, right? So an "If; else=" construction is something you know about and can decipher.

Hence: → were @ the else: Something is very bad. Thanks that you tried though, but the majority of em players stuck in here is feeling completely left alone guys...a simple "disable your AV" doesnt do the trick at all... its still a bad developement on your side (even if that works out for whatever reason, which does not for me, as i tested it :( ....)

 

Yes, you troubleshooters are awesome, but please develope sometihing for us special snowflakes too :/.

"2. Rename the following file: version.dat to config.filecheck." i guess you refer to that part, right?

That file called "version.dat" doesnt exist in any of ma two BDO-Folders... nor any file with that name related to BDO... so according to what you said, it should work for me now, as it doesnt exist, right? It still doesnt work.

Renaming for me did not work, only deleting.

Surely they are not very smart at coding. Those issues are considered very simple from a developer's point of view, while for most others anything related to code sounds alien.

Those that people call developers are not all programmers. Huge difference to be a guru at animation or graphic design or 3d design with coding. I would not even touch this subject if it wasn't my job, but I would never allow a customer of mine to suffer from so "silly" little problems here and there. Software with such issues is called just "broken". Those that love it broken is their absolute right to love it. I don't care. There are some others that it is their first time to play a game on a computer, including mods of this forum, that they love it thinking that those problems are part of computers in general.

 

I just don't care anymore, the only thing I hate about all this is that I gave precious money to people that do not deserve it, I helped them with their fraud. I could send that money to 3rd world countries and really help a human being -- not those ignorant money seekers.
