Changes for July 5th, 2018
Separate Game Installation

  • The client for Finvarra's Fortress is now separate from the client for the Legacy Server in order to allow us to be free to make internal changes without the risk of breaking the Legacy Server. Your current game installation will continue to function and connect to the Legacy Server. To continue playing on Finvarra's Fortress, please install the new client at https://realmserver.com/files/RatLabsRealm.msi
  • This new client might require you to install the Visual C++ 2017 Redistributable if you don't already have it installed (almost everyone should by default). If for any reasons you run into issues launching the client - just install it from the following and it should fix it (will be bundled into the client in the coming days) https://aka.ms/vs/15/release/vc_redist.x86.exe
  • The game should be playable for significantly longer before running out of handles.
  • You can now interact with the last item in your inventory.
  • There is no longer a need to run sciw.exe as Administrator or with any Compatibility settings enabled. We do still support running on Windows XP.
  • We now play nice with Windows AppData. Your local game settings can now be found in \users\username\AppData\Local\The Realm\
  • Some issues related to running the game with multiple monitors have been fixed. There is one known remaining issue. If there is a monitor above or to the left of your Primary Monitor, moving the game on to that monitor will cause you to be unable to move the game window. We will continue to investigate a fix for this.
  • Better crash reporting has been enabled to help us track down remaining game crashes.

 

Bug Fixes

  • Copper resell prices have been returned to normal
  • Fixed a bug where it was possible for players to not drop items when they did not have the funds to pay for insurance.
  • Fixed a bug where Crushing Boulder could still stun the target even if they were already under CC.
  • Fixed a bug where spell resistance could go negative when equipping items that took you over the cap. Your resist will now show what it actually is, but only works up to 75%.

Etherealize has been implemented!

Items

  • Fixed issue on some armor set items where Spell Resistance was not being reset properly
  • Decreased value of Prismatic Ward and Refracting Bastion for insurance reasons. This only affects new items and any existing item will permanently retain its old value and we will not be replacing them, sorry!

  • Items will no longer equip automatically when you right click on them

 
 

Bind on Equip

When attempting to bind an unbound item, you will now receive a confirmation dialog asking you to confirm binding the item. Due to technical constraints, this only applies items that have dropped after this patch; Any existing unbound item will not receive a confirmation dialog.

 
 

Gambler's Den

  • Duach Iron Key renamed to Gambler's Lucky Key
  • Adjusted drop rates of items in the vault
  • Added mundane variants of Finvarra's Cowl, Shoes, Boots, Sash and Bracers to the Gambler's Den. These variants have the name and look of the Finvarra items but have no stat bonuses

 
 

Bounties

  • Bounties now can be opened without talking to an Archaeologist! Simply click on them and then click "Use" to get your item!
  • In response to this, the Archaeologists have left West Leinster

 
 

Bug Fixes

  • Some memory leak fixes. The game should last noticeably longer before running out of handles.
  • A warning message will now appear on screen if the game has less than 10% handles free. This is meant as a short term mitigation while we continue to fix the underlying issues.
  • Fixed a UI bug that lead to some players not seeing the bottom line in the Tells window.
