Hello,

I've been trying to install this game off and on for the better part of this year, to no avail. I keep running into the same problem each time that didn't exist prior to me playing a year or so ago.

To start off: I download the game straight from the Torrent and wait until it finishes. I close the whole Torrent client down, move the WAR folder to my desktop, make sure that it is 'read only', and proceed to open the launcher.

This is where the trouble begins; the launcher doesn't actually download anything. It will only say 'downloading manifest', then proceed to verify everything in the game (audio files, assets, etc). Once it completes this, I will get an error message telling me that there was some sort of socket error and that it was unable to connect.

This is interesting because I've had previous issues like this with Everquest clients where they were trying to connect to the patch server, but came up with a socket error. To this end, I researched a fix for it, and fix it I did. There was an issue with the proxy server on my computer, so I essentially disabled the proxy server (LOTRO also had issues with its own proxy server when trying to patch), and it was able to patch. But WAR dos not patch.

So maybe there was an issues with InstallShield Update Manager, which would interfere with my server connections to WoW private servers. So I made sure that was closed out, but WAR still will not connect.

If there's anyone who may have a fix for my issues, I would be deeply grateful. I just learned that Warhammer: The Old World is going to release sometime just yesterday, and I wanted to celebrate by playing some of my favourite Warhammer Fantasy games.

Here are the screenshots I've taken:

I could certainly try that. I’ll try anything at this point. I have spent so much time on this game in the past and miss my characters far too much to just let it all go as the dust on a solar wind.

I’ll let the forum know if it works or not. Sacrifice a goat for me in the meantime, please.

I can’t get into the game. I read all of your instructions. Well, I didn’t feel anything. Help me.

I followed the instructions WarGrim provided precisely. I was able to get all the way through the first round of patch file downloads from the launcher (run as admin). As instructed, I closed the launcher (without clicking connect yet) and rant it again (as admin). The launcher executed again and instead of only downloading a few more files, it looks like it's trying to download the entire game again (171,764 files).

I'm so excited to return to WAR after so many years - anyone know how to get around this? No way will my internet support a download of this size.

Ive been on ror since it started and never had problems with getting this to work, if i had it was easy solution. Now for about a week game does not work and ive done everything i can imagine and i followed every instructions. Today trying again but 2 of my friends had same kind of problem for a loooong time and then suddenly it started working even if they didnt change anything. Respect to devs and i just cant quit even if i only play 1 day a week and always T1-3 chars=)

Okay never had this problem before so im gonna post sreenshot and text what the new error was for me;/ Since ror was online never any problems but last week and today i installed and downloaded everything again. Im in ror discord with same name if anyone knows what this is, prefer anyone else than dev's because this is probably easy to fix im just stupid with computers and devs do enough (more solo content and rvr gear would be great) =) No Launcher error game just crashes as soon the first sounds of the game start, cant even get to loading screens. https://i.imgur.com/MN2RUpB.jpg
