So .. there is an update workaround without the need of older server:

  1. Install Franz and quit it (ot just quit if you have it installed).

  2. Open services.json file (in %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\Franz\settings) and change it to following (don't forget to change ( "team": "https://URL_HERE") (still I have no idea what the field "id" does, but it works):

  "services": [
      "notifications": true,
      "count_message_direct": 0,
      "count_message_indirect": 0,
      "zoom": 0,
      "showIndirectMessages": true,
      "enabled": true,
      "focusMode": true,
      "id": "abcd123",
      "order": 1,
      "service": "rocketchat",
      "name": "Name",
      "mute_audio": false,
      "customURL": true,
      "team": "https://URL_HERE"

(if you already have some services there, you will have to add one service in the json list).

  1. Start Franz and click the tab even when its selected (this got me confused on the first try). It will load RC.

  2. Login and enjoy :)
