    WINDOWS 10 FPS PROBLEM

    Oh, that's neat. I'm not sure if this d3d9.dll is compatible with your version, but if it is then awesome. I'll take this problem up to the owner and see what we can do, hopefully add some option to allow you to select a .DLL or something along those lines. It's quite odd how some .dlls are being patched still, I downloaded the ones from Google Drive and used some old ones I had lying around and it wouldn't forcefully patch it, wonder why it did it for you. But glad to hear it worked, if anything else happens just make a new thread and ping me!

    WINDOWS 10 FPS PROBLEM

    Odd, I just tested it out and it won't update the d3d9.dll on my side, the same for a staff. Can you try out with this d3d9.dll and see if the launcher forcefully patches it? d3d9.dll Furthermore, can you send me your d3d9.dll so I can test it out on my side, please?

    Dificulty in missions

    I agree. Season V brought in a lot of "balancing" to the dungeons one which KoG says "makes monsters stronger" .. which was quite a statement considering they've done the following: Removed "Attacks" from several monsters, leaving many with just one attack, and removing a lot of attacks that allows a monster to defend themselves. They balanced the HP/DEF of monsters, but it's still not enough to counter the scaling of characters. You can easily one-shot any monster right now with a single special usually, KoG tried to prevent this but it wasn't enough. They reduced the amount of monsters present in a single stage to about 3 ~ 5, makes things pretty easily when you consider the balancing they've done (though more monsters wouldn't do much without making them stronger). They for me personally, were trying to rush players to the end-game instead so they can focus on making that difficult while sapping any sort of challenge from the other dungeons. We have been planning to revamp a lot of dungeons. We've applied an AI Overhaul to Bermesiah's monsters which made them a tad stronger, restored missing attacks (created some new ones too), and made them a bit more aggressive. We plan to do an overhaul for every continent and we'll definitely be looking into buffing the monsters up once we do that. Later on, we'll be working on actual dungeons themselves and probably work on monster placement plus more quality of life stuff to make them more enjoyable and challenging than the chore it is lately.

    WINDOWS 10 FPS PROBLEM

    Have you given your computer a restart? This FPS fix works for the majority but some players seem to have issues with it (as expected). For this fix to work, your video card/computer must support DX11. Later today, we'll be updating the Launcher to stop it from downloading the d3d9.dll forcefully so you can use whichever d3d9.dll you want, which should solve the issue for you, unfortunately it seems to be incompatible for you but rest assured you should be alright once we update the launcher.
  5. Hello, Chasers! We've applied a lot this update as so, this patch will be quite bulky compared to the past patches which also caused it to take quite a while to finish. We've made a couple of structural changes to the files which should help with the implementation of upcoming custom sets and enabled a lot of older sets to keep the fashion game growing, something we plan to expand even further in the coming future. We have also applied a fix that should help resolve the FPS issues that many players have been dealing with. This fix will be applied automatically upon patching your game. If you run into any issues launching Grand Chase Madness after this patch then please make a post on the forums so we can help you resolve any issues. The dungeon is coming along well, we had to postpone it a bit due to our attention being needed in other department but we can provide a glimpse of the dungeon art direction and a system we will be utilizing to the max in this dungeon: Distorted Roots The dungeon will be composed of (4) stages and utilize the Arcane Gates system for progression in the second stage with the other stages utilizing portals. Please be aware that nothing above is final and is subject to change before release! Some details are intentionally left out as we are not sure if they will be in the final product. We will be focusing our attention on this dungeon this coming week to get it out to the players soon so we can work on more things. Once this dungeon is released, we will be looking into creating new sets and begin executing our plans for an expansion. There will be more information on our plans for expanding such features to other dungeons in the near-future! That is all for now! As always, thank you for your patience! You can find the manual patch for this maintenance from the following sources: We heavily suggest you use a Manual Patch for this update as it is quite bulky. New Things Coordi Closet (More information below) - This system will allow you to preview any gear you wish on your character (as long as it's available in the Closet). - The closet will be periodically updated with more items as time goes on with the potential to allow previewing of things beyond just equipment. FPS (Frames Per Second) Fix - We have applied a fix that should help resolve the FPS issues that many are plagued with. - This fix should be universally compatible and work no matter the Windows Edition/Build/Version you are on. If you run into any problems, please make a thread on the forums and we will assist you further.

Bug Fixes Fixed a bug with several items in-game lacking a model, mesh, and/or icon. Fixed a couple of minor bugs that have come to our attention. We are planning to ship out a patch later this week in an effort to fix the issues with Monthly Attendance and the Conqueror of Serdin/Kanavan missions. We apologize for this inconvenience. Coordi Rotation It's time to let out your inner fashionista with the official unveiling of the Coordi Closet! This system will allow players to try out a variety of different looks by mix-&-matching different gears available in Grand Chase! The equipment that will be available for previewing will only be limited to what has appeared in Grand Chase Madness. This will change later on as we finish adding everything that we intend to add these coming patches. To kick the system off, we've included most of not all the Event Sets released since the launch of Madness, most of the Coordi Shop catalog, and all the released Gachas up until now with the exception of Siegfried which we will be adding at a later date. We will slowly be adding more items to the Closet as time goes on with plans to implement the entire GP/K-Ching Shop into the Closet in the upcoming patches. You can access Coordi Closet through Menu (ESC): You will be able to try on any mix of equipment you want as long as it's available in the Coordi Closet. If you wish to save a look for later, you can click on one of the (3) available slots below the [Clear Stored Look] button which will allow you to save a look. If you wish to clear a look, you will have to click on [Clear Stored Look] button which will clear all (3) slots. This functionality is bound to change in the future as we receive feedback on the system and iron out some quirks that are sure to pop up. There is currently no way to overwrite a look, you have to use the [Clear Stored Look] button to reset a slot, but this is also bound to change in the future. The Coordi Closet's content list will be updated on a patch-based basis, where we slowly add more items into its catalog each patch as long as there is something to add. We will be implementing the entire K-Ching/GP Shop plus all the missing Coordi Shop equipment at a later date. That's all for now folks! Enjoy Until November 2019 Did you hear yet?

    Jin Overhaul

    These changes aren't final, I been meaning to tackle Jin again and change him a bit more and improve his overall kit plus shared stuff a bit more. These changes I think are fine but they are a bit hit-or-miss for many people. I got lots of feedback and suggestions from people who experimented with Jin and I definitely feel that he's a bit more underwhelming now when it comes to Game Play. Things I'll be doing include an instant change between EOD/IF (and allowing you to move even while the animation is being cast), working on the penalties a bit more and improve many things with the Rage Gauge and probably rework Armor Break a bit (ironic considering it came in not so long ago, haha) and revert some changes such as the HP Absorb nerf of Iron Fist and much, much more. My focus this time around is working with the burning buffs a bit more, so that's where most of my new changes will lie. I'll definitely be tackling the whole controversy with Armor Break, I think the idea in general is nice but the effect/application itself falls off hard. Thanks for your feedback! We encourage anyone who has concerns with certain changes to say so, things can't improve without it!
  7. Hello Chasers! A maintenance is scheduled to take place on October 15th, 2019 sometime between the hours of 12:00 p.m. and 09:00 p.m. (EDT) that has an undefined duration. Once the maintenance begins, you will not be able to log onto Grand Chase Madness. The patch notes will be made available after the maintenance. We will also announce 10 to 15 minutes before the start of the maintenance so you have time to finish everything you're doing and log out to avoid a rollback. The purpose of this maintenance will be to do the following: Implement a new system: Coordi Closet. Add Nightmare Circus and Moonlight Village to the Event Dungeon rotation. Add Lime the Queen of Errands, Sphinx OX's Quiz, and Attendance Stamp to the Mini Game rotation. Remove Talin's Revenge and King Slime Land from the Event Dungeon rotation. Remove Machinations of the Eclipse and Mari's Laboratory of Danger from the Mini Game rotation. Remove the Active Gachas from the Seal Breaker Gacha rotation. Rotate the Seal Breaker Gacha rotation to the announced winners. Enable some Halloween-Themed events. Deactivate the Back to School event completely Resolve a couple of minor bugs that have come to our attention. If you have any event-related item such as the Stolen Schoolbag and Dark Acolyte's Orb you can exchange (5) of each material for (1) Dungeon Festival Coin this upcoming patch but if you've been meaning to spend them, we suggest doing it tonight to be safe. These materials will be deleted the following patch. We've been working on a lot of things behind the scenes which has caused this update to be postponed quite a bit, but rest assured that these events will be extended and last a couple of week(s) more into the next month plus stack on top of the November updates. There will be some teases of the new dungeon in the upcoming patch notes! Please note that if we run into any problem that can cause the maintenance to be delayed, we will make a comment in this thread announcing it. - Madness Staff Team Below you can view tidbits of upcoming special changes and events It's time to let out your inner fashionista with the official unveiling of the Coordi Closet!

    This is a Halloween set and it'll be available next patch.
  9. Hello, Chasers! This update is being done to stabilize the server from prolonged up-time issues. We've also applied a couple of quality of life changes and released a couple of extra sets we've been meaning to release for a while now and disabled some events as they have reached their deadline. Furthermore, we've resolved most of the issues that arose the previous maintenance such as the model bugs with Qipao, Night Witch, and Phoenix and a couple of other miscellaneous issues such as one with Bermesiah monsters not having any damage at all. For those curious about the upcoming release of the dungeon, we ask you to please be patient. Everything is coming along smoothly and we're currently at the testing phase and ensuring the dungeon is balanced to the degree which we want it at--we hope to have it out very soon! That is all for now, folks! As always, thank you for your patience! You can find the manual patch for this maintenance from the following sources: New Things Implemented a new Game Setting into Options named "View Guides" that allows a player to hide any guide-related interfaces that might show up while playing the game. - For now, this setting will only affect any character that has a command guide when pressing (X) or (C), e.g., Ley's summon selection or Lime's aura selection. We have plans to expand this option in the future to more guide-related interfaces such as the one shown in Trial Forest. Activated Events N/A Disabled Events Monster Train 301 (Event Dungeon) Hungry Pets' Revolt (Event Dungeon) Gift Shop (Mini Game) Back to School (General Event) General Changes Added a new mission to Gorgos' Dungeon (Serdin) and Gaikoz's Castle (Kanavan) that rewards you for clearing that part of the continent. You have to clear some of the missions in the respective dungeon for the mission to appear, some exceptions include characters like Dio, Edel, and Veigas. We have made multiple versions of the Kanavan Kindergarten Bag in order to allow players to use whatever character-themed bag on any character of their choosing. You are now able to exchange your existing Kanavan Kindergarten Bag in the Forge for a chest that corresponds to the exchanged Bag. Character Changes Integrated a Command Guide to Mari's Arcane (X) and Building (C) modes on all her jobs (except Geas) which shows what each directional arrow key will execute when pressed. Removed the (~1) second freeze that Polaris gets after she finishes building. Bug Fixes Fixed a bug with some of the Night Witch Set pieces on some characters where the model was either incorrectly textured, missing, or deformed. Fixed a bug with some of the Qipao Set pieces on some characters where the model was either incorrectly textured, missing, or deformed. Fixed a bug with some of the Phoenix Set pieces on some characters where the model was either incorrectly textured, missing, or deformed. Fixed a bug with Polaris' Call of Ruin (2nd Bar) where if you used the skill again at any point during the animation, nothing will happen. Coordi Rotation Added a new mission to Gorgos' Dungeon (Serdin) and Gaikoz's Castle (Kanavan) that rewards you for clearing that part of the continent. You have to clear some of the missions in the respective dungeon for the mission to appear, some exceptions include characters like Dio, Edel, and Veigas. - This is something we've been planning to do after each AI Overhaul for every continent. Right now the mission will only reward the player with a Signboard as we get the mission tested out and ensure everything is stable and bug-free. In the near future, we will start integrating a new mission (it will not matter if you did this one or not) into the last dungeon on every continent that rewards you for clearing the continent, the rewards can range from exclusive coordis to consumables and much, much more! We have made multiple versions of the Kanavan Kindergarten Bag in order to allow players to use whatever character-themed bag on any character of their choosing. You are now able to exchange your existing Kanavan Kindergarten Bag in the Forge for a chest that corresponds to the exchanged Bag. - This means if you got the Kanavan Kindergarten Bag for Elesis in your Inventory, then you can exchange it in the Forge for a Sel. Kanavan Kindergarten Bag (Elesis) Chest. Integrated a Command Guide to Mari's Arcane (X) and Building (C) modes on all her jobs (except Geas) which shows what each directional arrow key will execute when pressed. - We felt that for those starting off with Mari, it can get a bit confusing to know what each directional arrow key does when entering her special modes. As so, we decided to implement a guide that shows players that does exactly that. You can disable this command guide by unchecking the "Show Guide" setting in Options. Removed the (~1) second freeze that Polaris gets after she finishes building. - Since we were working on Mari, we've decided to go ahead and tackle some annoying flaws we can easily correct in her kit for now. Fixed a bug with some of the Night Witch Set pieces on some characters where the model was either incorrectly textured, missing, or deformed. - This bug was an oversight on our side. If you encounter any other bug with the Night Witch set then please report it! Fixed a bug with some of the Qipao Set pieces on some characters where the model was either incorrectly textured, missing, or deformed. - This bug was an oversight on our side. If you encounter any other bug with the Night Witch set then please report it! Fixed a bug with some of the Phoenix Set pieces on some characters where the model was either incorrectly textured, missing, or deformed. - This bug was an oversight on our side. If you encounter any other bug with the Night Witch set then please report it! Fixed a bug with Polaris' Call of Ruin (2nd Bar) where if you used the skill again at any point during the animation, nothing will happen. - Since we were working on Mari, we've decided to go ahead and tackle some annoying flaws we can easily correct in her kit for now. Monster Train 301 (Event Dungeon) | Removed Item(s): N/A Hungry Pets' Revolt (Event Dungeon) | Removed Item(s): Gold Coin Gift Shop (Mini Game) | Removed Item(s): Gold Coin Back to School (General Event) | Forge Items remain for an extra week to allow players to use their event items.
  10. Hello Chasers! A stability maintenance is scheduled to take place on September 20th, 2019 sometime between the hours of 12:00 p.m. and 09:00 p.m. (EDT) that will last between 30 minute(s) to 2 hour(s). Once the maintenance begins, you will not be able to log onto Grand Chase Madness. The patch notes will be made available after the maintenance. We will also announce 10 to 15 minutes before the start of the maintenance so you have time to finish everything you're doing and log out to avoid a rollback. The purpose of this maintenance will be to do the following: Restart the server to prevent any prolonged up-time issues from occurring. Apply a couple of Quality of Life changes. Remove all event-exclusive forge items related to Monster Train 301. Remove all event-exclusive forge items related to Hungry Pets' Revolt. Remove Gift Shop from the Mini Game list and the SmileyBrats, Casanova's Stylin, and Fionn Legendary sets from the Shop. All Gold Coins will be wiped. Deactivate the Back to School event. Resolve a couple of minor bugs that have come to our attention. If you have any Gold Coins you have been meaning to spend, we suggest doing it tonight to be safe. You will have an extra week to use all your Back to School items before the items are removed from the Forge. Please note that if we run into any problem that can cause the maintenance to be delayed, we will make a comment in this thread announcing it. - Madness Staff Team
  11. Hello, Chasers! This maintenance rotates a couple of events and brings in new changes to King Slime Land based on feedback we've received in the past, we hope you enjoy! We're aware of some bugs with the pet costumes and several bugs and exploits that arose as of late that we plan to address at a later date, thank you for those who brought some of these to our attention! We've been working hard on many things behind-the-scene (as you are most likely aware) and hope to have many of said things out very soon! That is all for now! As always, thank you for your patience! You can find the manual patch for this maintenance from the following sources: New Things N/A Activated Events King Slime Land (Event Dungeon) (More information below) Talin's Revenge (Event Dungeon) (More information below) Mari's Laboratory of Danger (Mini Game) (More information below) Machinations of the Eclipse (Mini Game) (More information below) Disabled Events Monster Train 301 (Event Dungeon) Hungry Pets' Revolt (Event Dungeon) Dice, Dice, Baby (Mini Game) Attendance Stamps (Mini Game) General Changes N/A Character Changes N/A Bug Fixes Fixed a bug with the Bermesiah's AI Overhaul where many of the changes got unintentionally carried over to several monsters across the game. Fixed a bug with several Pets where their particles were acting bizarre and appeared in the incorrect position at times. Coordi Rotation Until October 2019 The Royal Slimes are back and ready to judge Aernas! Following the Emissary of Judgment, Harkion's lead, the Emperor Slime has taken it upon himself to join in on the fun too! It is rumored that their jelly is a magical cure-all that is proven to heal any and all injuries along with illnesses. "We too, the Royal Slimes, have come to judge Aernas! Foolish beings, try to see if you can overcome our trials. If you cannot defeat us, we will destroy this world!" - Emperor Slime - Thus, the Great Slime Hunt of Aernas begins. Will you take up your sword and slash your way through the Royal Slimes in King Slime Land to obtain the rumored jelly and prevent catastrophe or risk the destruction of this world? The choice is yours. We've made a couple of quality of life changes to King Slime Land in an effort to make the it a less tedious and more unique dungeon on its own. These changes were done based on feedback we've received a while back with some extra changes applied to pack more into each of the slime's kit. We have reduced the stats of all slimes by a large margin and left them at relatively low values which we plan to tinker with as we receive more feedback to improve each slime and find a nice middle spot for what stats each slime should have. Please note that all the changes listed below are NOT final and are bound to change as we receive feedback on ways we can improve the monsters even further. These changes were made based on what we felt was wrong with certain slimes and what we thought can be done to improve them further with countless runs of King Slime Land to confirm if these changes were appropriate enough to ship out while also taking into consideration the feedback we have received. Credits to @Artleck for his tremendous help in creating the new animations for the Royal Slimes! List of Changes: That is all we've applied for now! Some slimes might act bizarre or not function properly after this update. If you come across a slime that seems to not be functioning properly then please make a post in this Bug Report informing us of what you have found. We will be having many updates along the week updating the AI to make sure everything is stable and on par with what is listed above. Thank you for your feedback and we hope you enjoy these changes!

The Grand Chase discovered and decided to use the Kounat Aircrafts, the Valkyries in order to travel back to Bermesiah. But trouble was brewing up as the Grand Chase's biggest fan, Talin Elfbane, returned to get his revenge from their prior interactions. Soar through the skies on the Valkyries and put Talin Elfbane's pursuit for revenge down once and for all! This event dungeon is based on the Shoot 'Em Up sub-genre of the shooter genre of video games. The dungeon plays out extremely differently from the rest of the game and is the only dungeon unique to its category.

  12. Hello Chasers! A maintenance is scheduled to take place on 09/15/2019 sometime between the hours of 12:00 p.m. and 09:00 p.m. (EDT) that will last an undefined duration. Once the maintenance begins, you will not be able to log onto Grand Chase Madness. The patch notes will be made available after the maintenance. We will also announce 10 to 15 minutes before the start of the maintenance so you have time to finish everything you're doing and log out to avoid a rollback. The purpose of this maintenance will be to do the following: Add King Slime Land and Talin's Revenge to the Event Dungeon rotation. Add Mari's Laboratory of Danger and Machinations of the Eclipse to the Mini Game rotation. Add the Announced Gacha Poll Winners to the Seal Breaker Gacha rotation. Remove Monster Train 301 and Hungry Pets' Revolt from the Event Dungeon rotation. Remove Dice, Dice, Baby and Attendance Stamp from the Mini Game rotation. Remove the Active Gachas from the Seal Breaker Gacha rotation. We felt an extension to the previous events was not necessary but we are unsure if we might do the same for the events listed for inclusion the next update. We will announce these the next Scheduled Maintenance notice in October. Please note that if we run into any problem that can cause the maintenance to be delayed, we will make a comment in this thread announcing it. - Madness Staff Team

We are working on our custom dungeon and are pleased to say it is going very well and we hope to release it sometime next month if nothing gets in our way! We've already been teasing what it will be about through each of the past individual patches. We hope you are excited and are looking forward to the dungeon as we are! That is all for now, folks! As always, thank you for your patience!
