The Actual Solution to the corrupt file problem from June 22nd

54 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

I know there is another thread titled this, but deleting version.dat and repatching (or even fully reinstalling the game) didn't fix the issue for me, or for many others.  Through a thread on Reddit, I've managed to actually fix my client so I can play.  I was erroring out with the corrupt file error message immediately upon entering the game.  Here's the Reddit thread: https://www.reddit.com/r/blackdesertonline/comments/4pcrg5/fix_for_corrupted_file_on_game_load/

And here's the fix.  I'm sorry in advanced that you won't like it.

1) When you crash, go to your Black Desert folder and go to the Logs folder.  Find and open the most recent Client log (i.e. Client_XXXXXXXXXX.log with the most recent timestamp)

2) Search for "PAD" near the bottom.  You will find a line that reads something like this (this is mine: "Error!=>패키지 압축해제시 오류 발생했습니다: e:/blackdesert/Paz/PAD00118.PAZ"

So, there you have the corrupt file.  For me it was PAD00118.PAZ. Here's the part you won't like:

3) There seems to be NOTHING you can do to get it to download a working version of that file.  I have no idea why, but no amount of patching, re-patching or reinstalling fixed it.  So, the actual fix?  Find someone to send you a working version.  I had a guildmate send me it and it works.  Just delete the corrupted file in the Paz folder and replace it with the working version your friend sends you.


I think it's worth noting that I'm really disappointed in not receiving any kind of messages or help from the developers on this issue.  Not a word, from what I've seen.  Just players scrambling to try to figure it out and solve it.  I don't find that acceptable, guys.  I really don't.

I did the same earlier today to get it working but also note the following:

I had top add the latest version.dat to the BDO root directory , this bypassed the need for file check/update although i then had to change region in launcher from Europe to US.

Due to bypassing the update you need to make sure you get ALL the .PAZ files you are missing from the update where it failed so get guildie to send you all .PAZ files based on timestamp.

I believe the issue is caused by corrupt update file being cached and could/should be eliminated if we were allowed to also maunally download and patch update from multiple sources as this workaround is painful but hey it worked anyways and I can play with guildies again.

 

Elah

Yeah.  I also crashed again on another file, so I'm going to have to keep having guildmates send me uncorrupted PAZ files until we get them all.  What a pain in the ass.

I've tried other remedies on here and have tried having someone sending me an uncorrupted PAZ file of my problem one PAD02089.PAZ and have yet to succeed.

After I fixed the first corrupted file, I crashed again and had another file that was corrupted.  Have you checked that you aren't getting a new error message now?

I get the same number each time. I can log in to 2 of my characters but not the third. That one crashes on the load screen.

Sorry, was busy doing nodewars, and now I had another issue so I'm reinstalling.  Hopefully my game works alright after.  I can get you tomorrow if no one does beforehand.

after many times file is corrupted, i start to see a clear pattern, this problem happen always when i start to switch channel , last week i stayed on BalJ2 for a week, no problem at all, today, i just started to switch channel for boss and find a good spot at pirate island, and BAM , "file is corrupted", i think the problem, at least for me, is related to switching channel.

That sounds a bit like my issue as well @Kybal, when we stayed on one channel all the time, no issues, now that we have been switching channels for the node wars, I get the corrupted file error (4 times in 3 days).  sounds to me like some variable data is getting crossed during the channel shift and needs to be either updated or initialized upon load into the channel.  just my thoughts.

I reinstalled and now I have a bunch of corrupt files again.  I can't keep bothering my friends to send me working files - that's ridiculous. Can a GM at least acknowledge that you're aware of this problem and working on a fix?

If anyone is able and willing, would you mind posting PAD02089.PAZ? This is ridiculous...

Getting this issue now after not logging in for a while.   I guess I'll try this fix.

 

It's beyond ridiculous that a GM hasn't responded to this issue and they sticky a thread pointing the source to be the users and not corrupted files on Daum's end.  @GM_Huego
