That’s because our switcher edits the hosts file. Turn off your antivirus and run the switcher again.
I get “Invalid Ripple IP” on the switcher, how do I fix it?
Make sure you don’t have invalid characters (such as spaces, commas and so on) in your Ripple IP. The IP must contain numbers and dots only.
I get “Connection failed” when I try to connect to Ripple
Make sure the IP in the switcher is 188.8.131.52 not 127.0.0.1. If the IP is set to 127.0.0.1, click the “Local/Remote” button, restart osu! and try to log in again. If you still can’t solve this problem, come on our Discord and we’ll help you.
I get “Bancho authentication failed” (wrong password) when I try to log in, but my password is correct!
Type your username and password, then press the login button with your mouse. I know, it’s weird but it often works. (make also sure that caps lock is disabled if your password is lowercase)
I can’t download maps from osu!direct.
Make sure you are using the latest version of the switcher. It should look like this. If it looks different, download it again from here
I can’t download maps when I’m in multiplayer, but I can download them from the main menu
Disable Automatically start osu!direct downloads from the options and try again.
How do I play on the normal osu! again?
Close osu!, run the switcher and turn it off by clicking the On/Off button
My switcher is off but when I open osu.ppy.sh in my browser I get redirected to ripple’s website!
Make sure the switcher is off, then empty your browser cache. Google it if you don’t know how to do it.
I get strange errors on osu!’s website after playing on ripple (beatmaps not found etc)
Delete s and t cookies relative to osu.ppy.sh using a cookie editor. If you don’t know how to remove specific cookies, just delete all cookies from your browser settings.
Can I keep playing while the server is restarting because it’s updating?
Yes, your scores will be sent as soon as the server gets back online (usually less than a minute). Just make sure to not close the client.
Is there a patcher for ripple?
No, you can change server by editing the hosts file with our switcher. Instructions here.
