I also seem to be having problems with update 116. I have, I think, done what the readme says.

Unpacked the files to my rwff root dir and appropriate subdirs. But when I run rwff_update I just get a window with a line of 'gobbledygook' characters and OK/Cancel boxes.

After all this the build shows as 70813.

I am running Vista.

Try this it was posted by Piti the creator of the Real World Fly Fishing Club House.
Rename the rwffu.dat to RWFlyFishing.exe in the RWFF folder. This works.
This should fix the probelm othersa have said it does I'm using Vista and it fixed my probelm. Check out the clubhouse and one of our many contest we have a group of fly tiers that are donating their wokr to have prizes for the contest the contest are open to everyone and we would likje you to join in. I'm Bobcat John the prize adminstrator I live in California USA, Oppimax lives Italy and he will be adminstrating the contest, Piti lives in Austria and he cgreated the clubhouse, Dcarp live in Oregan and he wrote or fly tying book and works with Piti on keeping the club up.

Hi Charles,

are you sure that you copied the version 116? Which build you can see on the game "menu-screen" after copied? The new version shows 71109.

If you give me your adress, I would send the RWFlyFishing.exe to you.

Regards Peter

Update 116 - renaming rwffu116.dat

As the above advice has worked for me, a thought occurred to me about what might be the problem for you. Sorry if you already know this.

When you renamed rwffu116.dat did you do it in the file explorer?

If so the file might now be called 'RWFlyFishing.exe.dat'. In which case it will not work and the old file will still be there and running. Check this using the file properties in the file explorer.

The file manager usually only lets you change the name and keeps the old extension.

I did the rename via the command prompt to get around this issue.

Hope this helps.

Does this new upgrade 116 include 115, 114 etc or does one have to download each and every upgrade?

The update file has been fixed. You get can it from
Unzip all the files into you game folder (where rwflyfishing.exe is installed) and run rwff_update.exe.

The only problem was that the zip file was corrupted and wouldn't unpack all the files as it should.

Let me know if you have any further trouble with the update.

Tight lines,


upgrade 116

after updating to 116 which it says was succesful and the version text verifies that but now my mouse does not work the rod and the little side view fisherman doesn't show. everything else works including the mouse curser.
