Titan Quest patch released

by Garrett, 2006-07-08 08:42:00
The Titan Quest patch is finally out:
The patch is live. Keep in mind that the server is likely going to get stormed from all over the world and initial download speeds may be slow as a result. If you do get a slow speed or the download stops before completion, please do not immediately cancel and re-start as this only increases the load on the server.

Most players will be able to get the patch from the "Updates" button on the main menu. You can also download the stand-alone patch at this location:

***If you have supported hardware but cannot start the game due to a failed compatibility check, you will need to download the stand-alone patch and install it (save to disk, then double-click to execute). Once the patch has been applied, you will need to edit your options.txt file in My Documents/My Games/Titan Quest/Settings, and add a new line to the bottom that reads:
skipCompatibilityChecks = true

Note: Bypassing the compatibility check will allow the game to start with non-supported hardware, but you may still encounter fatal errors as a result. As a reminder, integrated graphics and graphics cards without PS 1.1 capability are not officially supported.

In the meantime, most of the major download sites offer the patch as well. The patch weighs in at 5.15MB, btw!
