T-Engine4 / ToME4 beta18 aka "V" unleashed!

As promised here comes T-Engine4 and ToME4 beta18 ! See http://te4.org/

This is a "quick" release to fix some bad stuff in b17 and introduce a few nice things. Notably the first version of player housing!


Release highlights:

  • Fixes crash & bugs
  • Fixes unlocks & achievements update on the server
  • Adds player "house"

Expanded changelist:

  • Unlocks, achievements, .. should correctly update again
  • Bad game version detection will switch to a "development" profile automatically
  • Added the -P"profname" command line switch to switch to a "profname" profile (to prevent uploading bad data)
  • When targetting the map will scroll to follow the target cursor
  • Fix the lost merchant quest
  • Fixed the Blighted Ruins
  • "Normal mode" did not provide all the lifes it should
  • Fix Onslaught
  • Fix War Hound
  • Sandworm Burrowers are not very angry creatures now
  • The Golem can not decide he hates his Alchemist
  • Most level change terrains (stairs, ...) should have a tile now, except the worldmap
  • Smooth movement can now also be used to do a "motion blur", this is used for Rush and Disengage (and Lightning Speed on a smalelr scale)
  • Strength tooltip does correctly state that it also increases to hit chance
  • Going up from the slime tunnels will correctly place the player back in Grushnak Pride
  • Removed the Pyromancer, Cryomancer, Geomancer and Tempest classes; instead unlocking them will grant all new Archmages access to the corresponding trees (which are bumped to level 10 trees)
  • Players can now acquire a "house". More features will be added to it later on
  • The orbs in the ruined dungeon will de-activate once the level is completed
  • The Three Edged Sword now has a correct encumberance value


Have fun and don't forget to help ToME by with donations!

Development profile

>Bad game version detection will switch to a "development" profile >automatically

What does it mean by a 'Bad game version'? I have logged in with my normal online-profile but when I start playing beta18, it displays the message "Profile disabled(switching to development profile) due to no online profile active.". Yet when I save and exit, the 'player profile' shows me as logged in.


There is a slight bug in b18, I have replace the archive it should work, please redownload it.
