Abilities have no names

Post#1 » Sun Jan 24, 2021 7:47 pm

Hello! This problem has been frustrating me for months now. My abilities have no names - on the icon it tells the path, the dmg etc - everything but name - in combat log it gives no names - just says ability hit for x amount or heals for whatever the value happens to be. I have reloaded launcher and tried to repair many times to no avail - If i need to know name of spell i have to alt tab to forums - char builder to see the name - I am currently trying to branch out to a few new classes but alt tabbing all the time to see what the recommended spells are is somewhat problematic. I have checked on bugtracker and forums but havent seen anyone post anything that is remotely similar to this problem - Talked to 1 of the great GM's this morning - they advised to post here to see if anyone knew of solution - I also used to delete my cache files about once or twice a week - however i no longer even have a cache folder in my warhammer files - Any help would be greatly appreciated

Thank you for your help

Hey,

oh boy, this sounds so borked, I recommend a really fresh install.

How to Download:
+ Recommend Torrent Tixati: http://www.tixati.com/
+ First step, disable your Antivirus, Firewall, or Malware detection programs. These can potentially interfere with an install.
+ Download torrent file: https://www.returnofreckoning.com/files ... 20.torrent
+ Run the Torrent file, with the Torrent app, and wait until it's finishes.

How to Install:
+ Stop your Torrent from seeding (close it, maybe check your task manager)
+ Move the Warhammer Online - Return of Reckoning outside the ReturnofReckoning-March2020 folder and move it to c:\ ... for instance move it to c:\Games
(but NOT inside c:\ Program Files or c:\ Program Files (x86); it should be in a folder which it have write access)
+ Remove the write-protection from all the files in the Warhammer Online - Return of Reckoning folder.
(right click on the War Online - RoR folder > properties > disable the read-only box)
+ Check that your whole Warhammer Online - Return of Reckoning folder is whitelisted in your Antivirus program and check if your Firewall or Maleware doesn't interfere with the install.
+ You may also try running the launcher with Administrator privileges.
(Right click on the RoRLauncher.exe > properties > run administrator)
+ Run the RoRLauncher.exe
+ Let it update (sometimes it needs a few seconds until it starts)
+ Exit launcher and rerun it again
+ Repeat the last 2-steps until there is no update left
+ Launch the game

!!! [If you don't have DirectX 9.0c, installed it is required, and now this is also included in the torrent. In the ReturnOfReckoning-March2020 folder find the dx90c folder, open that and run DXSETUP.exe]

Otherwise, I recommend to join the RoR Discord (#technical-advice) (link in my discprition) if you have further questions or/and issues.

Being somewhat of a "technologically-challenged" individual I was somewhat panicked when I read the "fix" - However, I persevered and conquered - need a ton of interface/profiling work but that is well worth the time for the difference in-game that I've noticed already in a few other things - Thank you again so very much!
