Upon encountering any errors, please make sure to do all the steps listed below.

  • Always use the Full Installer. You can download it here.
  • Right-click on AdventuresRo.exe and set its Compatibility mode to Windows 7, if you’re running Windows 11, Windows 10 or Windows XP Service Pack 3, if you’re running Windows 7.
  • Right-click on AndventuresRo.exe and tick the box next to Run as Administrator.
  • Right-click on AndventuresRo Updater.exe and tick the box next to Run as Administrator.
  • Be sure to grab the latest patch through AndventuresRo Updater.exe
  • Avoid installing the game to Program Files. Try to install it to somewhere like C:\Games\
  • Disable Anti Virus AND Firewall software before installing and/or patching. (Especially in the case of Avast and McAfee)
  • If you use Warsaw (a bank software popular in Brazil), you will need to uninstall it.

Should you still have any issues, please explain your problem on Discord’s #support channel.

The installer doesn’t start[edit]

  • Disable your antivirus; it might be scanning the whole file.
  • Depending on your computer, it can take some time to start; wait patiently.

The install stops at “data.grf”[edit]

Data.grf is the biggest file in the installer; the installer is working, but it doesn’t show the progress (wait a few minutes).

The installer cannot connect or takes too long[edit]

  1. There is a connection issue to the download server when downloading the BGM folder through the installer.
  2. Using a VPN will most likely get rid of the issue. You can try SoftEther, for free, by clicking here.
