    !!! If you run a server and decide to switch to our Steam beta branch READ THE IMPORTANT NOTES AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS MESSAGE !!!


    While we wanted our focus to be on expanding the game play for dragons, I decided to take this build in a different direction for many reasons. The biggest of which is to address the many issues that you, the players, have brought to our attention. I'm referring to things like a blood/gore toggle option, softening of the motion blur (a toggle is coming that will allow you slide how much (or little) motion blur you want), insta-dying near heat sources, ease of switching between GUI's, etc. The list goes on.

    I think you'll be happy to know this build isn't just about fixes though. We've expanded the customization options to all the races, polished a ton of animations, gave the user message system some much needed love and loads more! For full details of the changes that comes with this build, read the patch notes at http://trialsofascension.com/patchnotes.

    Also, we ask that you stay on top of the latest known issues which you can find at http://trialsofascension.com/forum/threads/known-issues-list.10553/


    This build is currently available as a beta version. To access it, you will need to switch your version of the game in Steam to beta. To do that, simply right click on ToA: Exile in Steam, select Properties, select the Betas tab, and choose Beta from the dropdown. Steam will install required updates and you should be good to go.



    When in the beta branch you will only see the beta servers. You will NOT see the non-beta servers. You must switch your version back to default in Steam to see non-beta servers.

    If you are NOT hosting any servers, you should be fine switching back and forth between beta and default.

    Attention Server Hosts:
    You should be ok if you switch to the beta branch with your existing server. However, if you switch to the beta branch or start one after you switch to beta, you will likely lose all data to that server should you switch back to the default branch.

    If you might want to switch from beta back to default, we highly recommend that you keep a copy of the current server's data to switch back to. Do this by making a copy of the file named 'database.sql' found at C:\Users\[USERNAME]\AppData\LocalLow\Forged Chaos\Exile. Keep a copy of this file somewhere other than in the mentioned location, such as your desktop. Should you want to switch back to default, you'll need to go into the above location and replace the new database.sql file with your copied version. WE ARE NOT GUARANTEEING THIS WILL WORK! It has worked for us a number of times throughout our testing but we make no claim that it will work for anyone else.
