If patched correctly, when you open the launcher again you should see ver.34 in the top left.
If you see that then close the launcher and prepare for the English patching.
STEP 3 | ENGLISH PATCHING + CHAT FILTER DISABLE
There are three links which you will need to extract to where you installed Dragon Nest.
Please make sure that when extracting these files to the dragon nest folder,
that it is only the files you have extracted and not any folders to the installation folder.
Now, after extracting those files to your Dragon Nest folder, you must execute one file and
run this as admin.
Execute Dragon Nest KR to Eng Patch 01.exe
THIS IS THE ONLY FILE YOU NEED TO RUN, do not run the other ones.
You can even delete the other ones if you like. When the black command prompt pops up,
type patch and press enter. If all goes well the game will be patched and
the window will disappear.
UPDATE: You must go into your Dragon Nest folder and delete the file " Resource01-English-UI.pak "
STEP 4 | REGISTRATION
You will need three browser tabs open to do this.
First go to the following links.
On the first link for the first field, you will need to enter a user name, all lowercase,
4-16 characters in length. If the user name is crossed out then choose another one.
For the second field your password goes here, 6-10 characters in length.
For the third field you're going to need to take a look at the second link mentioned above
and replace "Your Name" with whatever you want, then copy the translated text in the right panel.
Paste this text into the third field of the registration.
For the fourth field you're going to need a randomly generated Chinese ID number which
can be obtained from the third link. Just copy any one of those Chinese ID numbers and paste
this to the fourth field.
You do not need to enter anything for the fifth field of the registration page, Hit the yellow button.
If all goes well then you should see your account name and some Chinese next.
You can close your tabs now, you're done with the registration.
STEP 5 | LAUNCHING THE GAME
Run the launcher of the game. Click the big green button to the left of the launcher.
Select the top left option and then click the big button to confirm.
Now your bars on the launcher should be 100%.
Click the big red button and your game should now patch it's protection system and launch.
When the game is running, you will be able to log in, all is self explanatory at this stage.
We play on Servers 1 (when logging in, it will be the server with 1 in the text.)
From there, you will be able to create your character and select a channel, from this point it doesn't even matter.
Some times when launching the client, you won't be able to log in to the server your characters are stored on.
To resolve this issue, completely restart your client until you see the option to select your server.
