    Running as nonprivileged user

    The behavior that you can't start the Launcher manually is as designed.

    Problem with ingame sounds

    I don't know if this issue still exists or if you could solve it with the workaround I posted. But if you still have this issue, you can maybe try to use low quality sounds. This workaround fixed the issue for another player. You can find this option in the game options ---> Sounds --> Low Quality (at the bottom)
  3. Welcome to Skylords Reborn! If you experience any problems with the game, the first step you should do, is to read our Help topics and the FAQ. There you will find many information you need to run the game on the first try. The problem I see here is, that you only white listed the SkylordsRebornUpdater.exe. But you should white list the whole directory to make sure, that no file is getting blocked. Probably the Updater cannot download the Launcher.exe. It's definitely not normal, that the updating process will take hours. Maybe some minutes depending on your connection speed. But all the files we download are only a few KB or MB in size.

    Problem with ingame sounds

    What if you copy the files from your PC to your laptop (maybe to another location to keep both installations). Is it still working then? Don't forget to also copy at least the config.xml file in your Documents\BattleForge folder. If it is still working on your laptop, you do have a hardware/driver issue. If you get the same error, your files on your PC are damaged. In the second case, you can try to copy the working files from your laptop to your PC and try again. If it is working then, I guess you have a problem with your anti virus (although disabled). As I mentioned in another thread and on Discord, 90% of all issues are related to anti viruses being still active in the background.

    Problem with ingame sounds

    Oh I misread the script output then. You're right. I just took a look at the script itself on GitHub. It's all good. @Horja Can you maybe try to run the game on another machine? Maybe you do have some sound driver issues which only happen with this game. But that's unrealistic in my opinion. If I get the time, I can write a small script to create a checksum of all the files on my machine. So you could compare them to the checksums on your machine. I'm working on a new Updater to implement this feature directly, but it will take a while until everything works as expected. Right now there's only the above mentioned method to check if your files are somehow corrupted.

    Problem with ingame sounds

    I think you extracted the Updater and the game itself. So there's no need to keep the Updater.zip and BattleForge.rar. The script is wrong there. I would however suggest, that you keep those files somewhere else (in another directory). If you do have any corrupted files, you could simply reextract the archive instead of downloading it again. And this is my suggestion: Delete the game files and extract the game archive (BattleForge.rar) again. I guess your files are somehow corrupted and therefore aren't playing the sounds.

    Nothing happens after I press 'Play'

    Can you try to also start the game with disabled anti virus? You wrote, that you "installed" the game with anti virus turned off. But executing an application which might be detected as malicious by some anti virus is more dangerous like simply copying the file in a directory.

    Game won't start

    You don't need an installer to get the game to work. Just do the steps mentioned in this thread. If you still have problems, try the help/troubleshooting page. The "Bootstrapper" right now is the SkylordsRebornUpdater. A setup won't help with problems like anti virus or whatever. It's only for convenience for the user. In the future we will probably have a setup. Right now I'm working on some stuff to improve the Updater. It will probably rolled out with a setup in the future then.

    "Update the client"

    Did you check this thread? 90% of all problems like this are due to an anti virus which isn't configured correctly as mentioned in the thread. Also maybe try to redownload the Updater. The current version is v0.5.

    Game won't start after new update

    UAC.exe isn't Windows UAC. The Patcher was formerly named UAC.exe which was a mistake by InsaneHawk since he didn't know that the Windows security functions are also named UAC. So it is ok that he removed it since it isn't used anymore. Due to the fact that users sometimes install the software in Program Files we have to start it as administrator. Otherwise the Updater wouldn't be able to write into those directories to make some updates. But if we could start it without administrative privileges, the Launcher would then need it since it needs to modify the actual game client.

    NOT starting up

    Were you able to run the game on the same machine a few weeks ago? Because this seems to us like an incompatible processor type. Or maybe you're using Windows 10 S or you set your Windows to "Only allow applications downloaded from the Windows store". Please check these things and let us know again.

    problem with libssl-1_1-x64.dll

    Did you download the newest Updater manually? Microsoft seem to have blocked the old Updater for some reason. The new version works as expected and downloads the missing files. You can download it in our forum topic here.

    [E] Exception: Certificate error

    You need to fix the root cause of the problem. The Updater is getting blocked by Windows. Smart Screen, Defender or Windows Store settings. Normally those files are getting downloaded by the Updater. But they can't be updated if the Updater is getting blocked from downloading/accessing files.

    Game error missing launcher or battleforge.exe

    The Launcher is getting downloaded by the Updater. Only thing he has to do is to add an exclusion for his AntiVirus for the whole directory.

    Doenst start updater and ive done everything

    Seems like the Launcher can't start up. Are you sure your Anti Virus is turned off? Maybe add an exception to the whole BattleForge directory just to be sure. If this doesn't work, try to delete the MyDocument\BattleForge directory. Maybe there's something broken in there. Try again to start. If it still doesn't work, check if there's a Launcher.exe process in task manager after pressing the Play button. Maybe this application can't start up. And it is necessary to be able to. If it starts, but BattleForge still doesn't start (keep an eye on the task manager for a running BattleForge.exe process), then tell us again here. So we can try something else.
