Update #13

Besides some minor fixes and adjustments this patch is all about items. We looked at every unique item, relic and artefact in the game and buffed many of them up in order to make them more exciting to find and use. Some of them also form new sets now, and all of the old sets have been adjusted to be worth collecting and wearing.

This patch will get the final version or will hang like Gothic 3? Thanks. :azriel:

I've entered the code and got confirmation but the beta has not appeared in the list.

There is a reason for this - savegame incompatibility with the old default version on Steam.

Is it really so bad that we have to resort to such measures? The games in Early Access are often saving break for example and nothing. :alyx:

Does any error message pop up? Can you run directly the TQIT.exe in your STEAM\SteamApps\common\Titan Quest Immortal Throne directory?
Vinter Feb 24, 2016 @ 10:44am 
Thank you very much! Just one question: is there will be an anti-cheat system that not allow to use inventory managment apps or item hacks etc.? It is just not so fun to play online with hackers who already have inventory full of sets and every single item on the game.

What is with the fanpatch 1.17a ? does it work and with the skins in it ?
And what is with my play-friends ? They play with CD version. Can we still play together, when I am play with this beta ?
MegalomaniacNG  [developer] Feb 24, 2016 @ 1:50pm 
Yes, it should be fully compatible with the fanpatch. We might do the fixes the fanpatch does also in the official version. We are generally open for further patching ideas.
At the moment we dont have a plan to give the patch out for free to any customers. We will investigate if we have a way to track old CD keys.

Can't launch the game in beta. It says the following: Failed to start game (unknown error). I tried to restart steam and reinstalling the game too. Did not help.

MS32.dll and DevL.dll are the reason it won`t start when using the exe directly from the Folder. Started from steam it just loads a bit and then stops without showing any error

:steamhappy: "Adding fanpatch fixes".."further patching"...you guys are awesome and will support you in anyway possible! Does this open the door for potential steam achievements?

Okay im going crazy here and Im not sure how to ask this question exactly how it sounded in my mind when i asked myself....

Was the loot display function switched to a toggle rather than "press and hold"?

Back when I used to play this game often I seem to remember mapping display loot key to spacebar and having to hold it down to see the gold and all loot above the common rarity and now i also seem to remember that showing common items was a separate key altogether...

After opting into this beta i seem to be able to press spacebar and the loot stays displayed on the ground. i can toggle between common loot, gold and uncommon and above loot, or nothing visible.

I have this feeling like I may be incorrect about all this but if this was an implemented change then I am so thankful.
