I am getting the same issue. It is also ignoring the windowed function i have in the T-Engine folder under resolution.cfg . Same with steam launch options -windowed and -sw . when i click on any of the 4 options, the game seems to crash and reload.

Yes, confirm the same issue. This Windows October update is a disaster!

Let me know if any logs I can provide to help.

Do I understand it correctly that this issue only affects a steam version of the game while a non-steam version works just fine? It seems very strange. Anyway, there is an idea if anyone wants to try.

Please only try the following if you understand what you are doing.
In this example the game executable (t-engine.exe) is located in C:/games/tome/ and the folder with saves (/T-engine/) is located in C:/Users/Username/ (where Userneame is the name of the current user).

1. Create a back up of your save folder just in case.

2. Open cmd.exe and change the current folder by entering "cd C:/games/tome/" (without ""). Or you can use explorer to open the folder (C:/games/tome/) and with nothing selected SHIFT+right click on empty space -> open command line (I'm not sure how this option is called in English).

3. Enter "t-engine.exe --home C:/Users/Username/" (without "").

Does it also get stuck?

yes, for me non-steam version worked fine, and only steam have issue.
After rollback to previous version currently i can't update again at this moment…

Ok i tried that and that worked, but of course that just worked for that one booting of the program, and i'd need to do that for each launching of the game.

On a related note, I don't mind loading the non steam version, but is there any way to get the DLC i purchased on steam to work associated with my account, rather than only work on the steam version?

You can set Steam to add command line options by default to a specific game.
Right click the game and select Properties.
In the General Tab, Press SELECT LAUNCH OPTIONS...
Type the --home C:/Users/Username/ line there. (Without the t-engine.exe bit this time.)

For your Steam bought DLC:
Log in to te4.org and go to the Steam tab of your profile.
Use that to link your Steam account to the te4.org account and it should sync the two and share unlocks, achievements and purchases.

2 problems, 1. Launch option didn't work. both command line and powershell worked though. 2. my account is already linked to steam, and i still can't access the expansions through the non steam version.

1: That should work. Its the same thing as adding arguments via a command line. :/

2: They don't auto install. So open the non-steam game. Press Addons. Then the button top left for DLC. Then the individual DLC you don't have. Scroll down and press Download.

Thanks for the command line fix, it works in Steam for me. I was going crazy trying to figure out why ToME wasn't working even after I uninstalled/reinstalled it.

@Gamer-man. There are two more options you can try. Create a shortcut for the game executable file and add --home C:/Users/Username/ in shortcut's properties. Or create a .bat or .cmd file (example for a file in a directory with t-engine.exe)
Code:
@echo off
t-engine.exe --home C:/Users/Username/

I'm not sure these options work if Username contains non Latin letters. In that case you can open cmd.exe and enter cd %temp%. It should display Username in a way you can use.

My computer decided the Windows 10 October Update was a-ok to install now. On first launch of TOME (running non-Steam desktop version) I got the "Hey, did you know you can online?" pop-up for the first time in a long time, logged in, and found a blank Load Saved Game window.

I tried the batch file fix from this discussion and TOME could again see the saved files but loading one went to black screen land. Trying to start a new game also went to black screen land.

Log file attached; the exciting bit (%User -> ********):

Loading savefile /save//

I assume the log is for the black screen situation (the game was started with --home). Is that correct? Could you please add a log when you start the game normally (without --home; blank Load Saved Game window)? Probably it's a good idea to make a backup of T-Engine folder first.

Yes, the previous log file was for the --home batch file launch. Here's a log file for launching t-engine.exe directly, which has the blank Saved Game window and seems to lack other profile information (even when logged in). My next step was to try starting a new game under the direct launch but I'm a bit wary.
