Original KR site Post: http://elsword.nexon.com/community/free/view.aspx?n4ArticleSN=2935123

Hello. This is GM Riel

Elsword already has a Video capture feature in game, but there are adventurers that use additional external video capture programs.

But cases have been increasing where players are causing harm to other player’s PvP experiences by using these video capture programs to affect the game’s frame rates. Because of these issues, the game will be changed so that these kind of external capture programs cannot be used.


<External Video capture program block notice>

- Time: After 2014 08 28 Maintenance
- Details: External video capture programs (Bandicam, Frams…etc) cannot be used in Elsword anymore.

<How to use Elsword’s ingame Screenshot & Video capture feature>
1. Press PrintScreen to take screenshots, Press ScrLk key to capture videos.

2. Check the folder where Elsword is installed in ‘data\ScreenCapture’ folder to check your captured screens and videos.
 - If there was no custom directory specified during installation, you can find the Elsword folder at  ‘C:\Nexon\ElSword\data\ScreenCapture’
3. Qualities adjustments like the video size and frame rates can be set using  ‘ESC > 옵션 > 녹화 설정’ menu

After the maintenance, the external capture programs will still run but you will not be able to capture using those programs. So please use the in-game Elsword Video capture system from now on.


Thank You.

———-

oh wow… they can’t prevent frame abusers so they just decide to block every video capturing programs. This wouldn’t be an issue if the in-game capture system was good as the external ones. I hope this does not affect streaming programs too.

also if you look in the main site where this post is posted, there are bunch of people yelling at the GMs get get rid of foreigners from KR server. Please try to refrain from PvPing in KR server if you experience even a slight distance lag.

Edit: For those of you that don’t have Scroll Lock Button available, They also made Insert Button available for capturing videos.

▲ Promotion image of Elesis’s new 2nd job character ‘Crimson Avenger’ (Picture provided by: Nexon)
Last August 21st, KOG’s action RPG ‘Elsword’ updated a new 2nd job called ‘Crimson Avenger’ for their character Elesis. To promote their new update, Elsword team attended the Seoul Comic world event during the 23rd and 24th for a meeting with its fans.
‘Elsword’ booth was decorated with Crimson Avenger as the theme. The booth was extremely popular to the extent where over 3 thousand people gathered near the booth 2 hours before the event started.  What kind of character is this Crimson Avenger that was the center of attention for this event? To find out more we went to the Seoul Comic world site to met with KOG’s development team leader Gwon-Oh-Dang.
▲ KOG Kwon-Oh-Dang ‘Elsword’ Development team leader
  • This is Elsword’s first time participating in Seoul Comic world. How do you feel?
Development team leader:  We were worried that we might interrupt users in having fun but I felt relieved after seeing users having fun carrying around ‘Elesis’ giant pillows. Since there are many ‘Elsword’ fans and players that come to this event, we plan to come here more regularly.
  • Comic World event is held in both Seoul and Busan. Do you plan to attend the Busan Comic World as well?
Development team leader: Development team did visit Busan Comic World during 16th and 17th. We enjoyed the event by buying items sold from the booth and such. Before this year, we used to visit Comic World Elsword user booths to cheer them on and buy them snacks. We plan to continue being observant for the events like these from now on. If possible, we want to appear in Busan Comic World as well.
  • Even before the booth opened, Over 3000 users gathered around the ‘Elsword’ booth. How did it feel?
Development team leader: I felt very thankful. I wanted to give something to every user who visited the booth but couldn’t do so due to material shortages. The event continues in the 24th and we are still giving out gifts so I hope users continue to visit and give their attention.
  • Elesis ‘Crimson Avenger’ was updated on the 21st. Introduce her for the users who haven’t met her yet. 
Development team leader: ‘Crimson Avenger’ is Elesis’s third 2nd job. Her play style differs from other Elesis jobs in that she deals damage by using up her HP. She battles by alternating between her Chivalry systems Annihilation and Gale. These two system modes have effects that absorb or recover HP so it is important to play managing these two modes.
Because of this, Elesis players have a high gap between Pro and Newer players depending on their control. Scenario wise, Crimson Avenger’s setting is that of Elesis losing her fellow Knights due to demon ambush and even Elesis herself dying and reviving. She was once a bright and chivalrous knight but after accepting the demon’s powers she staked everything on revenge. Thus she has a more violent personality. Users that weren’t satisfied with the older Elesis jobs will like this Elesis with a newer concept.
  • What were the user reactions after ‘Crimson Avenger’ was released?
Development team leader:  Response was great despite the update being released after the Summer Break. Opinions of the users is that the Crimson Avenger’s playstyle is worth researching. Also, satisfaction ratings on the Crimson Avenger’s image was very high.
  • Before ‘Crimson Avenger’ was released, there were already gameplay videos of her inside 1st job ‘Dark Knight’ promotion videos. This got  many users guessing. Did you guys plan for this?
Development team leader: Some details were revealed unintentionally while some were intentional. It was to build up the expectations of the users for the 2nd job by showing them new information. Before, the 1st and 2nd classes were released together. However for this summer update, releasing 1st and 2nd classes by 1 week intervals was a strategic decision to build up expectations for the new jobs.
  • Unlike other jobs ‘Crimson Avenger’ uses Chivalry system. There are opinions that the Character is difficult to use because its hard to manage the system.
Development team leader: It is true that Elesis’s Chivalry system is hard to manage. But even if you don’t exactly know what the system does, it does not cause any inconveniences when playing.  Still, we are working on revamps to address the issue of Chivalry system being hard to manage. We plan to change Chivalry system so users can make easy use of the system on the 28th update.
  • There are some dissatisfaction regarding ‘Crimson Avenger’s’ skill balance. What are your thoughts on this?
Development team leader: Development team is observing the situation with the users. The Crimson Avenger Skill revamp update is on the 28th. Also additional balance changes will be made gradually.
  • Can you give us an introduction on Add update that’s coming up in September?
Development team leader:  Add’s new job that will appear in September update will have a scenario from the past as his background. It’s a story about how Add gains an ability to jump between time and space and works towards on fixing his unfortunate past. It’s hard to reveal any more but, since he can freely control Time and Space, this new Add will feel very ‘freely controlled’ for the users. It would be alright to have  high expectations for this job.
  • Last words for ‘Elsword’ users?
Development team leader: From the start I wanted one thing. To provide for the current users that enjoy Elsword, a game that they can play proudly and to have them meet with even more new friends inside the game. I worked towards releasing characters and contents that cannot be seen in other games. Through more updates, I will continue to work hard so many friends can play and enjoy ‘Elsword’.
▲Visitors in ‘Elsword’ booth. Users holding ‘Elesis’ giant pillows were targets of admiration

▲ You can only participate after taking a photo in the Trick Art zone.
▲ Elesis giant pillows that caught the eyes of every Comic World visitors

▲ There were many booths other than the official booth selling Elsword related items.
