Step 1: Go to your Account page and re-download the installer.

Step 2: Run the installer, it will ask if you want to uninstall, click yes and let it finish.

Step 3: Go to the folder in which BDO is installed, typically C:Programs x86/Black Desert Online

Step 4: Delete both bin and bin64 folders as well as the log folder. LEAVE THE "Paz" FOLDER!!!!

Step 5: Create a NEW folder in C:Programs x86, I suggest naming it "Black Desert Installation" without the quotations. 

(Create a folder by right-clicking your mouse and moving your cursor over "New" to extend the menu. Here you will see the option to make a folder.)

Step 6: Run the installer from your downloads that you used to Un-Install BDO

Step 7: Change the installation folder to the folder you just created

Step 8: Once the Launcher is installed let it run, when it says it is downloading close out of it.

Step 9: Go back to the ORIGINAL installation folder and right-click and cut the "Paz" folder.

Step 10: Navigate to the folder you created where you are currently installing a Fresh Copy of BDO and right-click and paste the Paz folder in place.

Step 11: Go to your Desktop and right-click the launcher, move your cursor to "Run as Administrator," and click, a User Account Control prompt will appear on the screen, click yes.

Step 12: BE PATIENT. The Launcher will now download a SMALL amount of files even though it says it will download 31GB. You will see EXTREME download speeds as it is not downloading but finding the files in place.

Step 13: The Launcher will once again proceed to patch and it WILL hang up on that dreaded 56% for about 10 seconds, and then continue!!! 

Step 14: Enjoy the WONDERFUL world of BDO!!!

 

Let me know if this helped you guys out!!!!

 

 

Edit; Here is the solution if you get a corrupt file suggested by Lerggio and Step by Step instructions by Lidocaine!

 

When I got the corrupted file notice in-game, all I had to do was:

  1. Close the game
  2. Go to the installation folder, C:/Program Files (x86)/Black Desert Online
  3. Delete the version.dat file
  4. Run the launcher

excuse me, but english is not my native language, so what do you mean with "cut" in step 9?

The file operation cut or move, as opposed to copy.  I imagine copy would be fine too, if you don't mind duplicating a massive quantity of files.

Also even easier which worked for me, just move the version.dat from the black desert online folder and launch it again and it does the same thing. At school so I don't know exactly the path to the folder.
