Unwanted Beauty Mark

23 posts in this topic

With the recent patch, my Valkyrie seems to have a black square on her face, almost like a beauty mark. It's not visible from a distance, but the closer you look at her the larger the square gets.

Not sure what may be causing this issue, but has anyone else noticed anything similar?

Try going into the editor and changing the sliders for that area. I suspect it is clipping.

i have had a few similar marks show up.

Here you are not liking your beauty mark but there are models who would kill to have that beauty mark in order to make them unique.   O.o

My ranger has a magical appearing/disappearing mark on her lower lip.  At a specific zoom she looks like she is trying for the Amidala lipstick stripe down the center of her bottom lip, but as you zoom in it goes away.  I have no settings active for lipstick coloring at all, so I can only guess it is an issue with geometry, either clipping or bad LOD.

This has happened to me a few times. Reloading your game or changing your graphics settings/switching them back should hopefully fix your problem.

I use the same hairstyle on my sorceress, I suspect it's because of the hairstyle. Changing the hair and changing it back usually worked for me.

I changed my graphics settings and then changed them back and it fixed the issue. Glad to know it's not a permanent thing :$

I get this as well, but only on lowest graphics. It's gone when I put it back on highest settings.

Changing the quality setting (Increase/Decrease) will fix it, switching characters also fix the texture issue, I'm not sure if changing texture quality fixes as well, never tested on that one. This texture issue is just a minor problem of the game, so don't panic or worry about it, it really isn't there, is just visually to you and only you.

Cheerios ~♥

I know the reason of that "beauty marks". Game developers did that on purpose. It's their way to counter texture modification programs.

That programs intercept all textures that game loads and are able to replace them. But in order to recognize specific texture such programs calculate so called hash. Usually this is done by multyplying all bytes of a texture together.

And to couter that developers decided to randomly change one byte of a texture during loading. That way each time a texture is loaded it will have different hash. But the problem is that most of the game textures are compressed by https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S3_Texture_Compression. In that compression format image is divided into small square blocks and each block is compressed independently. And you can't simply take a random byte and alter it because sometimes you will alter a service data for a whole texture block. That is why you see these black squares.

Changing texture settings helps because that forces game to reload textures and this time another byte will be altered which may not result in a black square. Or it may appear in other place as well.

The sad thing is that this counter technique is still there and affect all players despite that noone is using such texture modification tools for Black Desert anymore for various reasons. One more thing is that other games use other ways to block such programs which do not affect legit users.
