I've tried port forwarding and it isn't working. I've used the thread that shows up when you google port forwarding for WFTO also and no success. Please help. My brother and I enjoy playing this together. All of a sudden one day, neither of us can host and port forwarding isn't fixing it.

Oni Ashigaru Worker not available in GoG version?

zakamoto 2 years ago in Community Forum updated 1 year ago 9


I have checked on the GoG website and there is no update patch (for any OS versions - I'm using Linux). Nevertheless, I played the game today and I did not receive the Oni Ashigaru Worker. Will it be available for the GoG [Linux] version before the end of April?


very slow outside of actual gameplay

Just bought this week, actual playing of the game is fine BUT amazingly long load times, stuttering and slow loading of menu \level selection screens, crashes on quitting, my laptop isn't a slouch being less than a few months old with a big gforce in and loads of ram, is this the usual experience?

i have the problem that since some months, that the game crash in the middle of playing. it happens everywhere (campaigne, pet dungeon, heart of gold, etc.). it happens more often since the undergames addon. i searched for solutions and tried changing the graphics settings, but nothing chances.

my core information:

game is patched to the newest version

my pc is only 2 years old,  so i have the ressources for the game.

i play other games at high graphic settings without problems.

Joystick axes and posesion

Xavier Gallifa Sillero 2 years ago updated 2 years ago 5

Hi all,

Im new to the game, just bought it some days ago and i have a question. When i cast possession on a creature, it become crazy, running and rotating the camera...its impossible to control it. I have a joystick+trhottle+pedals connected to the pc and i know thats the problem. Is there any way in game to change the controls to only use the keyboard when im in a creature? i cant be unplugging all the joysticks all the time... In the controls menu i have just seen the keyboard controls and the mouse sensibility.


Freeze during battle

bgentile 2 years ago in Discord updated by Scott Richmond (Programmer & Producer) 2 years ago 1

The game freezes each time I go into battle. I am on a iMac using steam, version 2.0f9. Tried reinstalling the game, restarting the computer, verifying integrity of game files, changing to a lower video resolution, unchecking ambient obscurance, unchecking antialiasing, and setting texture resolution to low. Freezes during battle. Sometimes it will unfreeze and then freeze again.
