    I cannot even get into the game as the game starts to load then just crashes. This is after three weeks in a row of corrupt file issues while trying to get the update and a week of not being able even able to get that far as I was getting a failed to init security message which has stopped after the latest update.
    It looks like all the computer experts have left the building leaving the cleaning crew to maintain the coding and the servers.

    This is the second time in two patches my game has been made unplayable.

    it took days of inaction last time to fix it, hopefully there will be a speedier fix this time.

    When rewards are based around playing for periods of time, or benefit from AFK activities such as fishing, you are taking enjoyment away from the game.

    I hardly ever log into here to post, that’s how disappointed I feel at the moment. As someone with a full time job who has poured a lot of real life money into a game I enjoy through the Pearl Shop, what possible incentive is there to continue to do so.

    it has everything to do with your patch, nothing to do with my internet, you patched it last time after an insufferable period, please fix it rapidly this time.

    We want compensation for our lost time, not a few useless bells.

    This crashing happens to me every 20-30 minutes. Game just vanishes, no errors. Tried clearing cache, replacing lightfx.dll. Nothing has worked. My experience was perfect until the patch on 11/6/2019. The frequency makes the game unplayable. I never had the issue last week like some on here.

    I also have been experiencing these same issues, and have tried the fixes listed. Still rather new to the game myself, but this is the second patch now that has caused this log in issue. Much like the others I am logged in for anywhere between 5 mins to 20 mins before my game randomly closes on me. No warning or anything. It has happened to me twice already today. Not sure what to do from here, so hoping it fixes soon so I wont miss the rewards like I did last time.

    Add me to the list, I'm lucky if I get 10 minutes. It was fine until this last patch. Previous;y mentioned methods are not working for me either.

    I cannot even launch the game. Today with the latest patch I have had two corrupt file messages even though I have not been able to play the game since last week's maintenance.
    First I had fail to init security. Tried the fix that was suggested to no avail, after the patch this week I could suddenly get the game to start to load but it would close before doing so. Today trying to get the latest patch I have had two corrupt file messages the first at 1% after which I restarted and ran the file check and when the download started again it stopped at 2%, just now it has done the corrupt file message again at about 30%. What on earth is going on here?

    I'm getting these crashes too - it seems to happen when something graphically strenuous is occurring - like repeatedly tapping some location on the map to create the auto-path line, if you do this really fast a bunch of times it will crash.. also get it while just sprinting on my horse (i.e. through forest, once while sprinting into Heidel, etc).

    No crash log appears or anything like that, the game just closes and disappears... Hope you guys can fix..

    I have done the .dll thingy and game still crashed. I logged out and relogged, hoping the "patch" took. Nope! This has been going on for 2 maints now, ever since the new sailing events came out. I sent ticket in, tech told me to check my drivers ..... sorry, but WTF? Remember last Sat when everything crashed and people couldn't log onto the game for hours? Everything was fixed pretty well after that, then came last maint and we're back to square one again. Please fix!!! I dc just standing around. not doing anything, not looking at map, nothing. Come on .................

    Thank you for attempting to provide a fix, but unfortunately, this did not fix my crashing issue but actually made matters worse. After I installed the lightfx.dll from the link provided, my keyboard stop working on BDO completely. I could not press enter or use my mouse once I got to the title screen. My graphics were also lowered even after I restarted my laptop, I still experienced the same issues. Before I place the file in my System32 file, I backed up my original and placed it back in the system 32 folder. The game is back to normal, but the intermittent crashing is still present.

    I'm having this crashing issue too. I had it the last time and it had been working fine since the fix went in and now since the maintenance on Wednesday, I'm randomly crashing all the time. I lost a 24 hour combat training scroll and a 24 hour skill training scroll because the game kept dcing while I was sleeping and at work. I can't even afk fish. This really needs to get fixed again. lightfx.dll did not help.
