New update available

I've just uploaded update 114. This changes the artificial intelligence of fighting fish. It should remove the tendency of fish (especially large ones hooked on very light line) to swim to the far shore and thrash against the bank (the "loop bug".) Fish will still tend to move away from the angler in many cases, but will also favor deeper water. A big fish on light line may run, then settle in a deep hole to rest, run again, etc.

Please visit the downloads page ( to get the update to version 114 (build 70813.)

After updating to 114 it shows again the build number 70716 and not 70813. Is that a problem?
The Update window comprise not text. Shows only "ok" and "cancel".

Sounds like something didn't work. I've just verified the update file and it worked as it should (bringing the build to 70813.) I'll be in touch by e-mail to see what's going on. Has anyone else had this problem with the new update?

I found the problem with the update file. It's fixed now. If you don't see it on the downloads page you can refresh your browser and you should see it. You can also get it directly with this link:

Sorry for the error. It should be good to go now.

Hey Guys,

This may help a few of you guys to get the 114 update to work.

I downloaded the 114 updat then extracted the files to the RWFF folder. Then I clicked on rwff_update in the RWFF folder and it updated everything.

Hope it helps.

Paul, I am unable to install this latest update. I have even run uninstall and did a fresh install of the software. Each time I try to run update.exe I get this error message.
"Error: The Real World Fly Fishing third edition upgrade needs to be installed in the folder whee you have already installed RWFF. The original files are not present where this upgrade was installed.:
Got any ideas? Kerry :(

Hi Kerry,

I'm not Paul, but have you extract the zip into your RWFF-Folder and run the update.exe from there?

Pitti is correct (thanks, Pitti!) That error message just means the updater is being run in a location other than where the game is installed. I'm sending more details by e-mail.
