View Full Version : Demon War critical error

If you get a critical error after installing the Demon War beta that looks like this: Missing monster archetype ArchetypeBarbarian
it just means you need to install the 1.011 beta patch.

Hello Shadow,

I just purchased the expansion and immediately got the latest patch (1.013).. However, upon launch the game immediately freezes/crashes just before the title screen fully loads (I can see the monsters and character, but they don't fully render before it crashes)

My question is... Do I need to first load version 1.011, then upgrade to 1.013? If so, this needs to be clearly stated somewhere..

Any other ideas would be hugely appreciated, as I never had any crashes before the expansion.

Could you show us your computer specs?

Normally the latest patch includes all previous updates and it is not necessary to install all old ones.

Well after totally re-installing the game and starting from scratch, the game works... However, some graphic options are still causing the game to lock up in the same exact manner as before..

I believe the culprits are Bloom, Advanced shadows, and In-game AA settings. As soon as I turn either of the above on.. BOOM upon loading.

My specs are:

Win 7 64bit fully updated
q6600 quad core at 2.4 ghz.
4 gigs of ram
SB Audigy Fatality
ATI 4890

P.S. The game ran flawlessly with the above options ON before the expansion.

I hope this info helps you Shadow.
