Launcher issues [Patch 1.0]


We have made a strong overhaul over the current launcher system, so there might be issues using it, I will try to post the solutions to the problems here, that will be fixed in the future patch once we know how to fix it internally.

Q: I am stuck on 99% and the launcher won’t update anything!

It appears that if you have used a torrent client, that has been provided for approximately one month on our old forums, this issue is directly affecting the torrent users.

To fix this issue you must do the following:

  • Close any torrent client that is open.
  • Right click on your Black Desert Online directory
  • Un-check Read-only (Only applies to files in folder)
  • Click Apply and select Apply changes to this folder, subfolders and files0_1504889205477_upload-92774167-c172-41f0-b933-2270643244fc
  • Click OK and again OK after it finished applying the attributes.
  • Restart the launcher and you are good to go!

Q: The launcher is downloading 50 GB, but I already have client installed!

In this case, there should have had been a prompt that you have this and that client version. If there was no prompt, it means you have selected the directory incorrectly. If you want to reset the configuration and try selecting the directory again, you are able to do this:

  • Open RUN using START + R.
  • Type %appdata%/../Local/OgreFestBDO/ and press ENTER
  • Delete every folder that starts with CrimsonDeserLauncher.exe
  • Restart your launcher and you should be able to select the directory once again.

Q: I cannot open Settings from the launcher!

This feature is still not available in the current launcher, but it will be added fairly soon thus you cannot open it just yet.

Q: How to logout from my account?

If you have used Remember Me, you can logout by simply restarting your computer. An easier option will be implemented for logging out in the future.

If more issues are found, please post here so I would be able to find the solution for it. Thank you!

Hey I having some issues with the launcher, every time I try to open it an error apears:0_1504650475770_erro 1.png

@Mikodenai Hello! It seems that you are missing some library that is required for the launcher to function.

Would you mind verifying if you have Microsoft Visual C++ Redistubable installed for x86 and x64 ? The versions required should be: 2010, 2012, 2013, 2015, 2017.
You can find the redistributable library here.

If you are still having the issue, would you mind installing OpenSSL libraries from here ?

Please report back, if it works or does not work ! Thanks!
