How to start play Black Desert

This guide is for players who want to start play Black Desert, but don't know what exactly they need to process, or live outside of Japan. Read on and you will find almost everything from where to download, how to install, and how to make an account etc. 


What you need to get Black Desert up and running:
1. The full Black Desert game.
2. A Black Desert account.
3. Web Browser Installer Plugin.
4. English Patch.

1. The full Black Desert game.
Download BD Game Launcher Setup and Run Install installation from one of the link.
Official Link (1) :
Official Link (2) :
Download Black Desert Game Setup (14.7mb)
Download Black Desert Game Setup (Mirror) -

2. A Black Desert account.
Trying to run the game without a Daum account will run you into unable to download it. Making a Daum account allows you log into the official site and download the most recent, 14 MB Game setup file. 
You will need a KSSN ID to verify your Daum account. However, finding a KSSN ID can become very troubling to find for free online. Or use to make a Black Desert account. They will email you a verified account which you can edit the account information. It costs $10 for a Black Desert Account. 
After receiving Account information, log into with your Daum account, and start game.

3. Web Browser Installer Plugin.
As the plugin is not chrome friendly, please use Firefox or Internet Explorer. After installing the Korean plugin, you will want to login and attempt to start up your game. However, most people will run into having their browser restarting itself with each attempt to start the game through the website. This error is the launcher attempting to update but cannot. You will have to fix the registry(regedit) files manually. Here is how to fix it.
If you're on 64-bit Windows:
1. Start -> Run -> type 'regedit' -> Enter
2. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\DaumGames
3. Double click Version and change it to 1, 0, 0, 4  
If you're on 32-bit Windows:
1. Start -> Run -> type “regedit” -> Enter
3. Double click Version and change it to 1, 0, 0, 4
Note: 1. Make sure you have set your directory files to your Black Desert folder where you have already downloaded the game, or else the game will try to redownload itself.
2. If you have yet to run into this browser error, you may ignore this. You may revert back to this if problems occur. Keep in mind, that you should double check your registry each time you reinstall the installer, the registry file may reset itself.

4. English Patch.
After Installing the game and verifying that you are able to make it to the Start Game screen with no problems. Close the game, and Download/Install the setup for this English patch. After installing the setup, you should have a program on your desktop called 'Black Desert Patcher.' You do not need to download/install into main BD folder, even if you keep the game on a different driver.
1. Open 'Black Desert Patcher'.
2. Choose which translation you would like to use.
3. Click 'Apply Patch'.
Download 'Official Website Link' English Patch -
Download English Patch Mirror -

VPN solution
The game will not come out until around mid 2016 for North America, so you may need a Japanese IP to unlock it. A VPN service will change your IP and allow you access to Black Desert. If you have problems with download authentications/starting, consider FlyVPN. It provides a free Black Desert account if you purchase one of their packages.
