Installing rMod (Easiest Way)

You can download the rMod Installer / Updater from our website here:

Simply place this file inside of a folder such as C:\rMod\ then run it. Keep the options checked for the parts you wish to install/download and allow it to obtain the needed files.

Installing rMod (Easy Way)

The download and install rMod, you can download the latest repository snapshot here:

Simply download and exact this package somewhere you wish to install rMod to. Such as:

  • C:\rMod\

You need to extract everything that comes with rMod into this folder! Do not pick and choose files for the initial install!

Editing rMods Configuration File

Once you have extracted everything, you need to edit the rMod.ini file to properly setup the application to work for your system. You can edit this file in any text editor, such as notepad. A more modern editor, such as Notepad++ is recommended though for easier viewing of the file with syntax coloring and such.

The main setting you need to change is the loader > path setting. This tells rMod where you have the game installed to. This path should be the full path, including the .exe file to your Reckoning install. For example, mine is installed at:

  • D:\Games\Steam\SteamApps\common\KOAReckoning\Reckoning.exe

So I would put:

[loader]
path        = D:\Games\Steam\SteamApps\common\KOAReckoning\Reckoning.exe

If you have the Steam version of the game, you need to make sure that steam is set to 1 to enable the Steam loading option.

Updating rMod

When an update for rMod happens, you need to update the main package files to ensure you have the latest version. To do this, you can download the main package here again:

Instead of fully extracting this file, you only need to extract the following files/folders over top of your current rMod install:

  • /addons/
  • /config/
  • /plugins/
  • /resources/
  • /scripts/
  • /rMod.dll
  • /rMod.exe

Please note!: When overwriting files, you should avoid overwriting your personal configurations and scripts. Instead, you should manually compare these files before overwriting them or adding missing information/configurations to your existing files. This mainly pertains to:

  • /config/rmod.ini
  • /scripts/default.txt

Installing and Updating rMod (Harder Way)

If you are familiar with using Git / Github, you can instead clone the rMod repository and keep it up to date by manually pulling from the repository. I am not going to explain how to do this for those that are not familiar with Git, sorry. The repository URL for cloning is here:

You can’t perform that action at this time.
