This is a quick guide on how to download and install Return of Reckoning client and the game.
How to Download
There are two ways you can download the game:
- Torrent game-file download (Recommended)
- Return of Reckoning installer download (Currently not recommended as you may experience low download speeds and installation issues)
Recommended Torrent Tixati: http://www.tixati.com/
You may have to disable your Antivirus, Firewall, or Malware detection programs as they potentially can interfere with the installation.
Download RoR Torrent file: https://www.returnofreckoning.com/files/ReturnOfReckoning-March2020.torrent
Run the Torrent file with the Torrent app and wait until the download finishes.
How to Install
- Make sure to stop the Torrent from seeding. (Close the app. If you want to be sure, check the task manager and end the task manually)
- Move the RoR Folder to c:\ (or atleast it's NOT in c:\program or a folder which it wont have write access. For instance move it to c:\Games\Return of Reckoning)
- Delete the RoRLauncher.exe
- Download a new one here: http://launcher.returnofreckoning.com/RoRLauncher.exe
- Put the new RoRLauncher.exe back into the RoR folder
- Remove the write-protection from all the files in the WAR folder. (Right click the game folder -> properties -> disable the read-only box)
- Check if your whole RoR folder is whitelisted in your Antivirus program and check if your Firewall or Maleware doesn't interfere with the installation.
- You may also try running the launcher with Administrator privileges. (Right click the RoR updater > Properties > Run as administrator)
- Run the RoRLauncher.exe
- Let it update. (Sometimes it needs a few seconds before it starts)
- Exit launcher and re-launch it again.
- Repeat the last 2-steps until there is no update. (Sometimes the launcher does not download everything on the first launch)
- DirectX 9.0c is required to run the game. If you don't have it installed, it is included in the torrent file. In the ReturnOfReckoning-March2020 folder find the dx90c folder, open that and run DXSETUP.exe
- Launch the game
