Follow step 8 on words if you would lượt thích khổng lồ have the English patch installed.
Congratulations, You are now apart of Blade và Soul Taiwan!
If you have sầu any questions please leave sầu them in the comments below & I will get lớn them at the sametime you can leave a phản hồi in the Blade and Soul Taiwan thread that I have sầu going.
Every timethe game does a update the patch will be overwritten with the update and you will have to install theEnglishpatch again providing it has been updated for the lademo patch that thegame has given out lớn players. In other words, if you see Traditional Chinese you need to lớn update yourEnglishpatch.
All credit for the English patch goes to: Project Izanami
Note: This patch is a translation of the Japanese version of the game into English, items left untranslated will be in Japanese as seen here:
Don’t let this be a minus for you, the patch still works & is being actively updated.
Step 1 – Downloading
Head over khổng lồ the Blade & Soul Dojo (account creation is optional, but highly recommended as you can get help with every problem that you get about blade và soul)Once the page has loaded, tải về the XML file from the link provided on the post, or you can tải về the patcher that they have created.
Both ways are presented, we will start with the manual installation.
I personally recommover using the non patcher way because with programs lượt thích them, they are always subject lớn messing something up, the manual installation of the patch is recommended by Team Lan Lan.
Download the raw xml.dat
You will have sầu to lớn click the first links that says:Direct xml.dat tải về link –(Date Here). It will take you to a drop box that you can tải về from. Go ahead and tải về it & save sầu it khổng lồ anywhere you would lượt thích.
Default XML.dat Backup
Before we start with the XML instalation you will need to baông chồng up your old one just in case something were to lớn go south, it does happen if you download the wrong file or one that is out of date. This is easy khổng lồ vì chưng & can save sầu you a lot of time.
Head over khổng lồ where you have the game installed, in my case its (E:Blade & Soul TW) The thư mục should look something like this. You should have the two folders Bin và Contents, don’t worry about the other two files I have sầu hidden folders turned on so I can see them, but really they are not important & can be ignored.
Next you want khổng lồ click folders in the following order in order to get to lớn the unmodded blade và soul xml.dat file.
1. Contents2. Local3. NCTAIWAN4. CHINESET5. Data
The final thư mục should contain only one file, however for the sake of the patch testing before writing this post I have already updated the xml, so I will have two files, you will also have sầu two files once done with the guide.
Step 2 – Most important step
Note: the following step will force your game to stop working until you install the new patch that you have just downloaded.
Right click the single file that you have sầu in the folder and rename it to something.Tip: Keep xml in the tệp tin name so you can remember what tệp tin it was before you changed it.I have sầu renamed mine as seen below và in the picture above to: xmlbackup.
Now that you have sầu your xml backed up you can find the XML that you have just downloaded. Find where you saved the XML file & drag & drop it into the thư mục that you just renamed your old XML file (E:Blade and Soul TWcontentsLocalNCTAIWANCHINESETdata).This is how the folder is to look like once both XML files are installed(see above or below pictures), one that is renamed the other that is by it’s normal name of XML.dat containing the English patch.
You should now have sầu two xml files in there, one that is renamed in case something were to lớn go wrong & one that just says xml. Your Data folder in your game directory should look something like this.
If you get an error after installing the patch where the game will not start, restore the XML backup that you just made và rename the english patch to something so the game will not read it. Launch the game, if the game launches it means that you have sầu a out of date English patch và you will have sầu lớn go bachồng và tải về an updated version of the patch, then you can install it lượt thích you did before.
