Check your internet connection, make sure you enter correct login (use the one you registered on website) and password (CapsLock is off, correct keyboard language is chosen).
What to do if I get "Version check error"?
Version check error occurs when your connection to the update server is unstable or abruptly cut. It's either something on your connection side or something like your anti virus or Windows protection is blocking the connection.
You should be able to make ArcheRage an exception to your systems protection and they'll ignore it.
Also, go to game folder and remove file "client.version".
Whenever I want to change to another character, the character selection screen just remains black. How to fix it?
Try to change your Quality settings to High or Very High.

You may need to switch between DirectX11 and DirectX9.
My Settings, Skill Bar locations and Chat Tabs don't save properly. What should I do?
Try to clear cache and reset the settings. You need to go to C:\ArcheRage\Documents and remove folder’s content (ctrl+A -> delete). Then start the game and set new settings.
I get a "Launch error" msg after i installed and try to press play in client. What should I do?
Your anti-virus is intruding the game and blocking or removing some of the game files. You just need to add game folder, Archeage.exe and Launcher.exe to the anti-virus exceptions, then restart your launcher and press Repair if it doesn't start itself.
If issue remains, you'll need to re-install the game client. If you used Direct Download before, try to use Torrent option.

Can't see/understant part of my game chat. See just empty boxes instead of the words or text not in another language I don't understand. What can I do?
You can see empty boxes instead of the text if player writes in language that use non-English letters. In such a case, you can see the exact text or even your full chats convo from the game in your documents. For it go Documents/ArcheRage/Chat or Documents/ArcheRage/LogBackups/Chat.
