is the dlc implemented with the update?
new dlc can't be added to account from steam store - it just redirects to main steam page when i click install

Yes, I have the same problem, something is wrong, we can only hope for it to be corrected soon.

Regarding the DLC, I'll recheck what is going on there, sorry for the inconvenience. Regarding the new intro, I just checked that, it plays just fine for me, are you sure that the update is already installed? Please check if the Version (in the settings screen of the main menu, lower left corner) is already 1.33. If not, just restart the steam client, it should then actually check for updates.

Edit: I rechecked the DLC and it looks fine as far as I can tell. Please try the following:
Go to library -> Realms of Arkania -> right click "properties" -> Tab "DLC". You should find the Ogredeath DLC there. If you do, it should already be installed.

I have the new version running.Just formed a new party and ran around for 10min and already miles better than release.
Haven't played the game since release since it was in such bad shape.
Going to have a longer play session later tonight.
Hopefully the combat is much improved and hopefully later the free DLC is downloadable.

No the DLC wont download for me.Checked the DLC tab and I have only the paid DLC listed.
When I go to the Ogredeath store page and click on DOWNLOAD nothing happens you just get redirected to the store.

I am sorry pfdsotm, but I have no idea what you are referring to. If you mean that the Radial Menu is out of the screen, then yes, that may happen (it shouldn't, but it can), but there is nothing missing from that screenshot as far as I can tell. The compass is deactivated inside of buildings, and you will have to be more specific in your report, I just don't get it, I'm sorry.

Moreover, I don't get why you constantly delete your own posts, maybe you could explain that too, thanks :).

Also, for the intro if you let the logo run, it should follow right after it. Though once it skipped the logo properly to intro. But most of the time skipping logo skipped intro.

Sorry, yes, I deleted that link did not think it was working , yes it is thast the radial menu is of the screen, if thats the way it is then thats the way it is, thanks for that quick response.

Is the new intro just the ship pulling in ?
