What’s new in this version
Version 1.0.4149.0 Patch Notes - Performance and stability improvements. - A variety of small graphical and art improvements. - Some gameplay changes from the original, from feedback from super-users. Please see the full patch notes linked below for details. - Added “something odd” tiles - which reduce detection of traps/special/secret doors to 1 square (from 3), including mapping icons. - Fixed issues where AntiApar to other dungeon levels was incorrectly set. - Fixed item loss on changing class in individual inventory Legacy mode. - Invisible walls now display as a normal wall icon on the map, as they are impassable. Railings - which are visible but can be passed through - use the same icon as crumbling walls, since they function the same. Invisible walls and railings can only be discovered by walking into/through them. Crumbling walls now appear solid until you walk through them. - Fixed Party Attack so that it can target non-controllable characters. - For Windows Store versions, there is now the ability to override the language - please see the full patch notes linked below for details. - Misc bug fixes.
