Hey guys. I would like to share some of my discoveries that will make your tools better. Existing tools are invaluable resource for repacking .meta, but they are incomplete. These details i am about to share are the missing piece of the puzzle that would allow you to completely repack .meta from scratch. So here we go:

* File names are encoded with euc-kr. This is 99% irrelevant, unless you want few files with korean characters to unpack with correct name.
* When unpacked size < 1024, file content in paz will not be compressed. Meaning file content will not have a 3/9 byte header. So dont do this AMGarkin/UnPAZ, check for uiOriginalSize < 1024.
* Hash field in file records of .meta file are actually a hash of lowercase file path within the archive. Hashing algorithm is here: AMGarkin/UnPAZ (very important!)
* File records of .meta file are sorted by hash in ascending order (very important!)
* DirectoryEntry.index = DirectoryEntry[i - 1].index + DirectoryEntry[i - 1].file_count
* File and directory entries follow same order. File entries can be accessed as FileEntryArray[ DirectoryEntry.index + 2 ]. This would get second file in the directory pointed by DirectoryEntry.
* Headers in paz files seem to not matter. Copying relevant fields from .meta file entry records is fine.
* Paz file structure: int hash; int file_count; int string_table_size; char string_table[string_table_size] /* ice-encrypted like in .meta file */; file_records[file_count]; /* here follows file data */

Thats about it. Rest of the information is well researched. Now you should be able to make a perfect .meta rebuilder.

I still do not have an answer what compression they used and whether we could compress files in a way compatible with original decompression routine. If you happen to know - do tell.

Cheers o/

Does this means that i have to buy another copy of the game? Because right now im playing through Steam.
Yes and your characters won't be there.
There are 3 versions of Black Desert Online on Steam, i view them through steamdb as otherwise steam redirects / hides the other versions:
The one published by Kakao Games is NA/EU.

But I cant buy another copy from steam right? Because I already have 1 which is the SEA client and when I try to log in to my account and buy the EA/NA version it still appears that I already own the game.

Hello! I have problems with the Resorepless Nude Mod. It worked fine since this last update (today) but when trying to play the launcher throws me a warning saying: "the update files could not be applied" uncheck the mod and the game is ok. Has anyone had the same problem? Have you been able to solve it? please help!

Your question is more likely to get an answer from the support folks at STEAM.

When I try to launch the game with this mod after updating it doesn't work. I launch the game and it crashes back to desktop with no warning or error or anything. It launches, the game window pops up for a split second and then closes. Restoring a backup to try to uninstall doesn't work either. I have to go in and choose "Verify Integrity of Game Files", wait for that to finish, and let it download whatever is missing. It was working before the latest update. And if it matters I'm playing on Steam (and NA servers).

Steam will obviously decline the possibility as the product is region locked. Talking to them about using VPN to bypass it is bad idea.
Whatever it can be actually done (having product from both regions on one account) i don't know. However why the extra work when standalone is available ?

I don't think there is anything you can do.

You're supposed to take the line matching the filename out of partcutdesc.xml but since this file isn't in older partcutdesc.xml (new guardian filenames not in my file) there is nothing to remove hence not possible. I wish people could correct me and say otherwise but I don't believe it. If there is a way then everything I read about how this file works is wrong.

<BasicCutType Name="Upperbody">
<!-- <Path>1_Pc/11_PGW/Armor/9_Upperbody</Path> -->
</ BasicCutType>

Edit : This time it seems to draw shadows and holes in the same ao file
By the way, it is pgw_00_ub_0002_ao.dds that creates the shadow of the armor reflected in the body.
Fill it with the same color as the background. Color is yellow

Last but not least, it's not only partcutdesc.xml that pierces the body
There are certain textures that open other holes.
Texture with _ao at the end of the file name.
Specifications include hair, underwear, specific armor
ao files have another function.
It is to make the armor shadow on the body.
Upload the modified Guardian Awakening Armor ao file
Patch in texture folder
\Paz\files_to_patch\character\texture\

Hi everyone, I just back into BDO after taking a long break and when I logged in I got this error message: Suspicious program detected. Please close any other programs you have running and restart the game F:\bdo\paz\resorepless.exe (see attached). What do I need to do to run the Resorepless mod again? I'm on the NA servers.

Thanks in advance for your help :)

The game is currently crashing for me again. About to try one more time.
In theory, it works this way:

1) Make sure the game is without mods.
(I delete and repatch with version.dat. I am not sure if that is correct, but that is what I do.)

2) load the game.
(I am about to load it with Restore and patch.)

3) Make sure the game is updated.

4) do all of your patchings.

5) DELETE ALL MODDING CONTENT from the PAZ folder. Make sure its not anyone on your computer. Even from the recycle bin.

6) Load the game after everything is deleted.

The game worked with mods last week for me, doing this procedure. Last night I did this after patching and it didn't work. I am not sure if it is going to stay that way. I am about to try patching now. Hopefully, it will work; maybe I didn't have the game updated correctly or something.

I'll edit my post here if it works or doesn't work.

EDIT: I can confirm that this still works. :)
I am guessing I had to patch my game. But it is back up and I am happy. My next step is to use Suzu's new tamer body since my Tamer is my main (well, it goes between Tamer and Maewha).

Here is a screenshot with my Guardian:

I tend to roll with Suzu's skimpy armors, cause I figured they'd have SOME sort of clothing on, even if it's completely revealing.
Oh, and a butt naked fairy in the background, lol.

Hope this helps someone!
