Start Blade & Soul without Launcher:
Open notepad
Copy the following text into notepad and save it as a .cmd file extension (ignore the quotations). The filename can be anything.

” start client.exe /LaunchByLauncher /SessKey:”” /MacAddr:”” /UserNick:”” /CompanyID:”0″ /ChannelGroupIndex:”-1″ /ServerAddr:” ” /StartGameID:”BNS” /RepositorySub:” ” /GamePath:”” /LoginMode 2 ”

Make sure to save it in the /bin directory or whever the “Client.exe” is located.
Add Blade and Soul on steam with functioning overlay (this option still utilizes the launcher):

Add game to steam as “Non-Steam Game”
Navigate to and add NCLauncher.exe. Default Location is ” “C:\Program Files (x86)\NCWest\NCLauncher\NCLauncher.exe”


So the non steam game profile should look like this (Default)
Target: “C:\Program Files (x86)\NCWest\NCLauncher\NCLauncher.exe” Start in: “C:\Program Files (x86)\NCWest\NCLauncher\”

Add These Launch Options to the Non-Steam Game (ignore the quotations)
” /LauncherID:”NCWest” /CompanyID:”12″ /GameID:”BnS_CBT” /LUpdateAddr:”updater.nclauncher.ncsoft.com ”

Remember, you can name the non steam game anything you wish, in this case “Blade & Soul”

Note: * -Remember to update Blade & Sould perodically (using the launcher), if starting the game/bypassing the NCLauncher.*

As of now, I can confirm this works with Blade & Soul North American version.
