(Optional) Part 2: Removing Text Censorship
pad00000.meta – This is the version control of the game and also the file that controls text censorship for you. This exists inside the Paz folder.
Download this tool (a meta injector) >> DOWNLOAD

And extract the folders and file into your Paz folder. Run the meta_injector.exe and the rest is self-explanatory. It even prompts you to create a backup of your meta for you.

So what happens when the game updates and your launcher doesnt patch anymore? Run this meta_injector file again to restore the backup file made.  Once this is done, you can continue to update your game like before and proceed to inject the meta again after it is done.

 

(Optional) Part 3: English Font chosen by the community.

Troubleshooting/FAQ (Taiwan)

Q: The launcher is stuck at 0% or my launcher cannot patch fully to 100%! 
A: You’re using a patched meta file while the game has already updated. You will have to unpatch your meta file by running the meta_injector linked above. If that doesn’t work, then you have to press the check files/repair button besides the game start button in the official game launcher.

Q: After pressing the Start button on the game launcher, the game launches and immediately crashes, why?
A: The english patch is outdated, which the game doesnt recognise as it has updated new content (game patched) and you have to wait for a new one. In the meantime, you can unpatch the meta file and play in Chinese for the meantime to continue running the game.

Q: The launcher is not translated!
A: The launcher is pretty straightforward, our efforts will be channeled to patch the ingame content instead.

Q: I don’t like the font, can I change it?
A: Sure you can! Grab any .ttf (TrueType font) and drop it into BlackDesert/prestringtable/font folder and rename it to pearl.ttf . If you would like a BOLDER (some of you like it THICC) font, you can download from here > Google Drive Link.

    1. Hi alohadoubt!

      For the Taiwan version, there is only 1 big server with multiple channels inside. Characters are tied to server not channels. So you don’t have to worry which channel you pick when creating your new character. People will be jumping around different channels too to kill world bosses due to the different spawn timers, so any channel will do for now.

      We will be stating later on which channel we will be at later on or even during the OBT phase. Do check back for more information or join our Discord channel.
