Q: How do I make that clicking noise stop?
On your taskbar click Start -> Control Panel -> Sounds and Audio Devices. Then click the Sounds tab and on the bottom scroll panel find Start Navigation (it will be under the Windows Explorer heading). For its sound select (None) at the top of the sound list, then hit OK and the annoying noise should stop.
Q: What kind of things am I NOT allowed to say in chat? READ THIS OR BE BANNED!
You may not ask or beg for free items anywhere in the game. You may not spam
the chat with multiple lines in rapid succession. The buying, selling, and
trading of things, be they items, characters, services, etc. is prohibited
from shout and must be said in auction. You may not sell anything or ask for
any price check, item, service (clickers, runners, etc), or form of payment
(money order, PayPal, etc) unless it is in auction.
Don't ask for votes. Votes are when you say something like: Everyone who
likes pizza type 911! This is inciting spam and is grounds for being muted.
Don't start lottos. Lottos are things like: Whoever gives me 50k will get
2Mil back! These are considered to be SCAMS. So don't do it.
Don't badmouth RWK. If you don't like the game, then don't play it. Don't
advertise other games. Do not thank people who give you trivial amounts of
gold. This includes people who give you "yellow spam". Thank them in private
messages all you want, but do not pollute chat with it. To define trivial:
anything under 100 million gold.
If you purposefully or accidentally break any of these rules or if you are
muted/banned and you get on another character before the mute/ban wears off
and speak in chat you will be 2 day or permanently banned without question.
If you feel you've been unfairly muted your only option is to send an email
to help@ and the matter will be investigated. Mute
evasion or false claims to unfair muting will result in banning. Complaining
about being muted or banned in chat is a great way to get banned.
Q: I can't access the URL at my work or school. How do I connect?
You can try connecting directly via http://184.108.40.206/index.html and http://220.127.116.11/index.html
Q: Why do I get a blank screen when I try to log in?
Q: IE is crashing or RWK won't load... what do I do?
Internet Explorer Add-ons can interfere and cause crashes. While at the RWK homepage click Tools->Manage Add-ons and individually select and disable every add-on you do not recognize.
Q: Why am I getting pop-up ads?
Race War Kingdoms does not have pop-up ads of any kind. You most likely have another browser window open or hidden on your taskbar or you have adware running on your computer that needs to be removed.
Q: Is lying and the use of propaganda allowed in RWK?
It is NOT legal to lie in order to scam other players out of their belongings. It is NOT legal to mislead other players about aspects of the game in an effort to discourage them or for any other reason. The one thing you may do safetly is lie about the identity of your character(s). This allows you to have multiple characters with different allegiances. Keep in mind that if you break any game rules with any of your characters then they could all be banned or we may reveal your identity as a punishment.
Q: I'm going away for an extended period of time, will my account be deleted?
Any account that has a purchasable quest item or super relic (MR, CR, VS or better) will never be deleted. Accounts that have no purchasable items may be deleted after 6 months of not being accessed, however.
Q: Can you delete my character or transfer my purchased items?
We cannot delete characters on request or allow quested or purchased items to be transfered. There really is no way to "ruin" a character. Every decision you make for your character can eventually be changed with work. When you reach max level and continue to level, for instance, your stats are shifted allowing you to achieve the ratios you desire.
Q: What are the rules for speaking in emote?
The emote channel is reserved for those who wish to roleplay. It has its own set of moderators that will determine whether you are contributing to the roleplaying discussion or merely causing trouble. Not following the rules of the moderators in this area of chat will result in you being chastised and disallowed to speak there for an hour. As with any rule, repeatedly breaking this can result in banning.
Q: Why do I get 24 hour banned for password guessing when I haven't entered any incorrect passwords?
Some Internet Service Providers (ISP's) such as AOL use the same IP address for many users at the same time. Due to this, when one user causes the IP address to be blocked all the users on that address suffer the consequences. The only permanent solution is to switch to an ISP that provides you with a unique IP address.
Q: How do I play?
Simply go to http://www.RaceWarKingdoms.com and create a player. You will be required to verify the character creation via e-mail. After that all you have to do is remember your character's name and password and you can play Race War Kingdoms from anywhere you have web access.
Q: Why do I see weird symbols instead of words in my drop down boxes?
On your browser click "View" then "Encoding" and make sure that "Auto-Select" is NOT checked.
Q: Why do my drop down boxes not work correctly?
In order to play you must use Internet Explorer 5.0 or greater. Race War Kingdoms will not work for Netscape.
Q: Can I please have some gold, anybody?
Not only will you not receive any gold from begging, but you risk losing your account. Please refrain from begging (you can 'role-play' a beggar elsewhere) and help keep Race War Kingdoms free of annoying spam.
Q: My graphic window doesn't switch the map when I move, why?
Go to "Actions", "Options", "Graphic Window Update" and select "Automatic".
Q: Why am I not gaining experience and leveling even though I'm fighting?
Go to "Actions", "Skills", and change the amount of experience you are directing toward skills. Putting 99% of your experience toward skills means you hardly have any going toward leveling your character.
Q: Why is my font so big/small?
Hold ctrl and roll your mouse wheel up/down to adjust text size or do so manually by clicking view on your browser.
Q: Why are some of the items in my inventory called "Undefined"?
Q: What are the INQUEST rules?
They can be found here.
Q: This FAQ sucks, where can I get more help?
You can type /help in the game at any time to receive a link to the official help site.
