Tales of Maj'Eyal 1.6.6 "Vaulted!" is released!

My minions, I am happy and proud to give you Tales of Maj'Eyal 1.6.6 ! See https://te4.org/

Your launcher should automatically update your game so no need to redownload it all.
If your launcher didn't self-update correctly, just redownload it from the homepage.

This release is rather big, with quite some focus on reducing the felt "godmode" of the AI and some corner-cases of scalings.

Don't forget to help ToME by with donations ( https://te4.org/donate / https://www.patreon.com/darkgodone ) !

GOG updates?

Thanks as usual for your hard work! Do you know when the GOG updates will be available? Right now we are stuck at version 1.6.4...

No :/ I've send it to them

No :/ I've send it to them but no news on their front :/ I'll ask again!

GOG is consistently bad about updating actively develped titles.

Not my first time watching my GOG library games fall far behind in updates. I think they just don't have enough people on staff to handle everything in a timely fashion.
