Updates to The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing have been released. The updates will be applied automatically when your Steam client (in on-line mode) is restarted.

The Incredible Adventures Of Van Helsing v1.2.4.
Major changes include:

Balance changes:

  • Willpower will now give both a fixed and a percentage based bonus to
  • Resistances for Lady Katarina.

Fixed bugs:

  • The "Enemy in the tunnels" quest no longer gets stuck if you complete the Protect the Lair quest before accepting it.
  • New command: /FixQuest 13 - for those who have the Enemy in tunnels quest already stuck.
  • Fixed an issue with Monster Respawn, where quests like Ancinent Inkgate got stuck.
  • If you had problem with the 'Ancient Inkgate' quest (bosses are not targetable, and they won't move), FixQuest 12 now will start the bossfight instead of just skipping it. For new characters, this issue has been fixed altogether, so they don't have to use the command.
  • Fixed a crash with the map loading.
  • Fixed a bug with the "Find the Engineer" quest.
  • Some of the elevators did not work in the Dreadworks scenario, making it impossible to complete the challenge. This has been fixed.

New features:

  • Lady Katarina has her own Drink Potion button in the upper left corner.
  • You can now edit the in-game resolutions via the config files located in \SteamApps\common\The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing\Cfg\Resolutions .

The Incredible Adventures Of Van Helsing v1.2.3.
Major changes include:

Balance changes:

  • Greater Capacitive Essence can no longer be enhanced.

Fixed bugs:

  • Fresh characters can now battle the bosses guarding the Inkgate to the mines, and proceed through the inkgate.
  • Physical Damage bonus from Glory no longer affects other damage types.
  • Fixed an issue causing certain unique items to respawn.
  • Fixed the minimaps for the DLC quest locations.
  • Removed the invisible mining cart from the Dreadworks.
  • The Gambler icon on the minimap confused many people because it had a question mark similar to the one used for quests. The icon now resembles a rolling die.
  • In windowed mode, clicking outside the window should no longer minimize the window.
  • The Assistant quest should no longer get stuck if you buy the generator plan before accepting the quest.

Thaumaturge

  • Casting firewall while moving no longer causes the character to stutter.

Mac

  • "Affect GUI Resolution" now works on Mac as well.

Multiplayer

  • The game now tries direct connection first, and only if it fails, tries to connect through backend servers. Opening port 6329 should fasten the procedure.
  • Improved the NAT Punchthrough procedure, should be faster and more reliable.

New features:

  • If "Affect GUI Resolution" is turned on, you can select any available resolutions (lower than your Desktop resolution). This also applies on Mac.

I was surprised by The Incredible Adventures Of Van Helsing. Yet another action RPG, but one that actually did something original – it worked in some tower defence elements. Now, I’m the first person to roll my eyes out of my head, over the desk, and out of the window on seeing the words “tower defence elements”, but impressively they made sense here, felt like a natural part of the game. It wasn’t brilliant, but it was a decent budget ARPG well worth picking up on an inclement day. Since then, three chunks of DLC have appeared, the latest adding a new class, the Arcane Mechanic.
