Repulse Common Problems and Solutions

Repulse Common Problems and Solutions by marksteele

Since most of the threads here are the same issue over and over again I figured I would make this master list that directs you to the right location.

Gameguard detects hacking software:

This means that something on your computer is conflicting with gameguard try the fix here:

If this fix does not work then use the following guide to submit your .ERL files to aeria so they can attempt to fix the issue.

You get an error message along the lines of “Repulse has stopped working….”

Try the following (credit goes to the WT sage team)

1) Disable your Firewall, Anti-Virus and Windows Defender. *
2) Make sure that your DirectX and Graphics Card Drivers ( nVidia Geforce ), ( ATI Radeon ) are up to date.
3) Make sure that you have Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 installed.

I can’t get the aeria downloader to work!!!!!

Try the method mentioned here:

if you cannot see the Akamai Netsession Inteface Control Panel you can use this download which will download Akamai. There’s a second part to the download that makes you open a file called “Open 10MB.bin” which is unnecessary and when you get to this part you can just cancel. Also, don’t forget you need to restart the installer to get it to work.

If nether of these work then use one of the unofficial mirrors located here

I can get in game but its laggy and unplayable

This generally means that your system does not meet the minimum requirments, check them here

If your computer meets all the requirements try the steps located here to speed up your network and hardware:

Another major issue is that the akamai downloader operates on a “peer to peer” basis and even when you have finished downloading the game it will still use your computer to upload the files. Uninstalling it will reduce the load on your internet.

When I launch the game I get a message that says “failed to execute the game client”

Make sure you are launching the game from the shortcut the game installs. If you are not then navigate to the folder where you installed the game (default c:aeriagamesrepulse) and run “R_Launcher.exe”. DO NOT run “Repulse.exe” as this will return the exact error message you are seeing.

When I try to login I get a message that my account is already logged in

There is no known fix for this situation, however it is known to resolve itself over time. You can also send in a contact us ticket to
