I'm usually pretty good at this but I must be missing something. I still see 170000 files to download.
1) Download the torrent Return of Reckoning Mar 2020 - Check.
2) Move to a new folder - Check
3) Torrent program closed - Check
4) Right click that folder, go to properties, and uncheck read-only - Check
5) All files & folders present including the read me. - Check
6) DirectX installed - Check.
7) Find RoRLauncher and run as admin - Check
8) Log into the launcher and manifest downloads - Check

9) It's back to downloading 100000+ files.

So what did I miss?

The only thing I can see I've missed is related to Antivirus but this isn't the issue.

Windows Defender is an antivirus, and it does matter.

So do you think its the Windows 10 antivirus that's causing this issue?
I've opened my "Allow app or feature through firewall" but RoR isn't listed there.

Ok, thank you. I've added the folder to my exception list as per the instructions, restarted my pc but unfortunately it's still trying to download 100000+ files.
Next idea?

Maybe I should start all over again.

Where did you move the folder? Usually desktop is fine. Program Files causes problems. C: would also work.

I moved it to my D drive - Games folder.
C drive is O/S only.

D:\Games\ReturnOfReckoning-March2020

Edit - i might have it.... just waiting for the manifest.

Hey, hey... I think it's working!
I'm not sure if this folder was there before but what I was doing is selecting the RoRlauncher which was in the main folder. Just now I've noticed there's also a Warhammer Online - Return of Reckoning folder within the main download..... in that folder there's another RoRlauncher.exe.
I've chosen that one instead and it looks to be working. We'll see.

Oh, I also haven't logged in. It now says 3/747 files to download which is better :)

Thanks for your patience Wargrimnir!

help, the second week I try to start the game, read the entire forum, tried different solutions, but the filthy indicator for connecting to the server continues to burn red and the "connection" button is not active
