I'm having the same error and can't play at all now


Delete BlackDesertPatcher32.pae completely. Start the game. Done. Working.

There were no answers anywhere on the internet and I got pissed and just acted like a jerk and deleted the file thinking "maybe it will just start so it can replace the missing files, or allow me to "verify" at least". Then it just started. If it happens again, rinse and repeat.
