  • Solution for problems starting Rappelz with AVG installed

    Apparently recent updates have had the effect that on systems with AVG installed after you click START on the Launcher, exactly nothing happens.

    To solve this you need to (re-)add your Rappelz-Folder to AVGs exception list:


    Necessary firewall whitelist entries should be added automatically (or offered to be added anyway) the first time you start the game after setting the exception for the Rappelz folder. If not, the following should be set:



    PLEASE NOTE THAT SETTING A GENERAL EXCEPTION FOR YOUR RAPPELZ FOLDER MEANS IF IT SOMEHOW GETS INFECTED BY MALWARE, YOUR AV SOLUTION WILL NOT BE AWARE OF THIS AND WILL NOT BE ABLE TO CLEAN IT EITHER.

    That shouldn't be too much of an issue, as long as you do not download files directly into your rappelz directory (or any other excempted directory for that matter) - if it gets infected by another vector, chances are your entire system is already compromised and your AV software failed on a massive scale ;-) nonetheless, this is something you should be aware of.
    So if you find your system infected, be sure to remove the rappelz exception in order to make sure nothing can hide in that folder. Better still: scan any infected system from a safe boot medium without exceptions to begin with. ;-)


    Thanks to (MOD)Zergaluon of Rappelz DE for doing all the tests in order to narrow down the required changes to make this work.
