    Mod Characters Not Appearing in Torchlight 1 Menu

    Hi, there:

    I have downloaded several mods into Torchlight 1 (ver 1.15) via Hotspot. None of the new characters or pets appear in the menu entry. Only two mods manifest in the game itself: the Merchant pack, which is set at priority #3 and the Poison Wolf, which is set at priority #6 (and, apparently, has eliminated the "Dog" option.) Even after clearing the cache via Hotspot, no Wizard, no Nashijira, no dragon... Very disappointing.


    I play via the Wildtangent app on Windows 7. Has anyone else experienced this problem? Any insight as to what might have gone wrong?

    Which version of HotSpot are you using? The original version has class and pet combining as a feature but the 2.0 hasn't had it implemented yet, in which case the mods are conflicting and they will not all show together (a limitation of the game itself). I also seem to recall mods being problematic on the WildTangent version, but I'm not sure if those bugs were ever dealt with or not.

    Thanks for responding. Regarding Hot Spot, the version I am using is 2.o.10 beta. The version of Torchlight is, indeed, from WildTangent.

    In that case, I'd see if you can install a single class pack and see if that helps. Just keep in mind that installing any other mods alongside it will likely give the game glitches, due to a limitation in the number of files Torchlight 1 can handle at once.

    Thanks for the prompt response. I have already tried the "class packs" unsuccessfully, but I will try one at a time to determine if that works. It may be, as you have stated, that the Wildtangent version has limitations. But the game is so enjoyable, I will not miss the mods if they can not be installed. Thanks again. Best wishes.

    I'd love to know when HotSpot has the feature restored (why was it disabled???) because it worked so well in the pre-2.0 version...

    The feature wasn't disabled, it hasn't been programmed yet. HotSpot 2.0 is a complete rewrite, and unfortunately due to a number of delays simply isn't at 100% of the 1.0 version yet. Corrupted files and dead hard drives, etc :/

    Re: Mod Characters Not Appearing in Torchlight 1 Menu

    Oh. That was a super useful feature in the 1.0 version... Is the 1.0 still useable, or am I stuck with waiting for the next update to the 2.0?


    Edit:

    Here's a thought: what about making a separate app *just* to deal with the charactercreate.layout file issue?

    That is something I would ask @kehom about

    Geez! I didn't notice this thread! :/
    My bad!
    Anyway, Webb told part of what happened.
    Indeed, at the HS2 section I already answered about this!
