Din's Curse: Demon War is now available for pre-order. If you pre-order you get a discounted price and, if you want, access to the beta, so pre-order now (http://www.soldak.com/Dins-Curse/Demon-War.html)!

Din's Curse: Demon War is the first expansion for the unique action RPG Din's Curse. Adds the Demon Hunter class, new demon monsters, tons of new quests, more involved NPCs, lots of new dungeons and caves, and much more.

Dear Shadow,

can you please update the website to include Demon Hunter's skills etc as well? Also, a 'changelog' of sorts maybe? Thank you! :)

Good deal, I'm guessing you just install it exactly the same way as the patches for Din's Curse thus far?

Also, would it be wise to wait until the non-beta of the latest Din's Curse patch to be released before installing this or...?

Short version: Expansion doings a new beast in these parts---how does it all work out simply?

After installing the beta, I get the following 'Critical Error' when trying to run Din's Curse:

Missing monster archetype ArchetypeBarbarian!

I've already entered my license key at this point too, so I'm not sure if it's wise for me to attempt to re-install?

But, but...I can't exactly "give it a try" without buying it. :( so I would really appreciate some kind of a very detailed changelog, and who knows, maybe you'll get another customer :)

p/s: I've not even bought yet the first one (only repeated the demo many, many times), as I'm not entirely sold on the game yet.

Problem with the Beta , after entering the registration key get the following message:

Missing monster archetype ArchetypeBarbarian!

Solution to problem:

Install DCBeta1011.exe, it appears some critical files are missing from the DCDemonWarBeta1011.exe if it is installed onto Din's Curse Version 1.010.

Ah yes, installing the 1.011 beta fixes it perfectly, thanks old chap!

Awesome, I was hoping the release would be today. I had some extra personal time and so took the day off from work, looks like I picked the right day to do so :)

You need to apply the 1.011 patch. The expansion is supposed to tell you that but you are getting this error first unfortunately.

errr can someone tell me what beta version mean?
do i need to buy its full version expansion after beta version fully test?

Nobear

Beta means it still needs to be tested (by us!) but you will NOT have to buy it again when it's final.

Stability wise, things seem really good.

I was curious how an old character would be integrated into the expansion. Loaded up the character, everything seemed pretty chill, and then:

Someone from town poisoned the provisions supply!
The food supply has been poisoned. Prices have gone up.

Nice!

How large is the download? Still on dialup here.

Nobear

It's 42.9 MB. Heck, I remember downloading the 50 MB Quake 3 demo on dialup, it's sure as hell worth it :).

Yes, it gets installed just like a patch. Just make sure you are installing to the directory where the main DC install is.

You will need to install the 1.011 patch also. The expansion needs somethings in 1.011.

Wow! So many new people on the forum these days :D Awesome!

Anyway, just wanted to add that I've just done the pre-order too and am looking forward to starting up my first town.

I don't like multiplayer, but I'll be following all the feedback threads eagerly. On the extremely unlikely chance that I discover anything that hasn't been reported by the other beta testers I'll be sure to post.

I have to get through some work first or I can see myself sitting here playing Din's all morning :o

I had planed to get to bed early today... well it didn't quite work out!! :)

Thank you very much for this amazing beta. Great fun, not disappointing, it was really worth waiting for it!

I'll try to come with feedback on things that aren't mentioned during the days to come...

I would appreciate adding the keys into Impulse- I believe Stardock offers that feature, I know they've mentioned it before.

I've been able to add people to Impulse before. Since it's mostly not up to me I can't guarantee anything though.

I would like this too.

On a good note, I don't think I'll ever need the key added to impulse, as the Expansion works just fine with my impulse version. I just installed the game in the right directory, plugged the key in, and it worked.

That's all I need. Thank you, it's appreciated.

I prefer Impulse because of auto-patching and unlimited redownloads, etc.

I LOVE it so far, addicted again!!

Problems
-The town starves a lot. I guess it's because of the food prices but I can't find all the critters to step on... Anyway, I get lots of free reputation when I donate a little money to them. Money needed to save them should increase the longer the food reserves are low.
- Hard to investigate who's the traitor in town... Needs a tutorial.
- Fights stop and come back. Sometimes I can get 6 messages in 2 seconds of fighting stopped and restarted between townspeople.
- Gold quest said to find the townsperson in... level 12. "Talk to the Nike in XXX Level 12 when completed". Level 12 is where I mined.
