o Use "Scan files' function 


oRecommend Next time, download patch manually using idm,etc , it is safer/faster


■ How to Install Patch Manually -from PA


1. First, check “Show hidden files, folders and drives” in Folder Options and press OK.

▲ Folder Options - View - Advanced Settings - Hidden files and folders


2. Run the update.log file in the folder where Black Desert is installed.

- You mean xigncode is not loading too?



o Use admin account and run as admin


o Whitelist BDO in firewall/antivirus

I got the same problem on this new patch today.

I tried to update it manually, so what i did was look at the last updated patch which is 750 so i paste the 751PAP file which is the new one today, run the launcher and i can see while patching the number 742, which was the patch last feb 26.

Can you suggest on what to do with my problem?

I have the same error Wisee, currently redownloading the client to see if that fixes it.


Failed to patch updating to 751 then upon file scan it backtracked to 742 and then proceeded to get stuck.


Tried multiple scans and deleting pad1852.paz which was the file having issues but no luck.

My old PC stuck when updating from old version -  patch 742. It looks like a bug or files corrupted from PA server.

Please send  ticket to PA .
