If you have that then I must have something else. Mine must be a hardware issue.

Five hours in and on level 12. Taking my time and making sure I don't miss anything.
Question, how does this online thing work? Currently I am playing Single Player and loving it.

I'm going to go to the gym now, but when I get back i'll google around. I want to look into my problem more anyway, so I wont be gaming.
I had a similar issue, but I think it was more to do with Steam, but at that time Skyrim and L4D2 was messed up with error messages. What I did to fix this was completely remove Steam by un-installing, which in turn wiped out all my games, then re-installed Steam along with the games I play and so far after about 2 months after that removal, everything is running great.
Though you shouldn't have to wipe Steam out, there must be a resolvable issue. I'll start digging for more info on your issues.

No, not modding at all. This is the initial install from Steam.
It appears that it finds the files but for some reason doesn't like them (file type).
The files are there, but empty, as I've never done anything to configure settings since I can't get that far, which baffles me on why it's telling me they need to be unicode.

Seen folks link it to Steam Cloud, the most recent update to windows7, and of course graphical drivers too. Though to be honest your problem sounds like you have had a bad installation.

I'm going to assume you've deleted all the files and redownloaded/installed it all again.

It is. Perhaps move all of your game files out, delete steam, and then move only torchlight back in. I don't know, i'm grasping at straws.


In other news, I swapped in my new graphics card (one that I thought was messed up) and so far no problems. Perhaps I just needed to reseat it.

8 hours in and I am at Level 18. The bosses get harder and harder. I realize it all has to do with strategy to take them down. So far its the best $20 I've spent for a game in a long time :D

Played the demo.. wasn't impressed (both graphically and through gameplay). Not sure why.. maybe because I got burned out by Diablo 3, that playing another arpg feels like a start all over again. Going to wait for it to go $5. Maybe by then, my arpg urges will kick start once more.

I just wanna say that I'm getting the same error. It happened the same way. After installation, i got a blue screen after launching the game for the first time. (using vista btw)..

Now I'm getting the same error as this Kreij guy.
ok I fixed the problem, I just deleted the whole torchlight 2 folder in that directory (where you get the error from).

then a launched the game without a problem.

Thanks, lange007.

I deleted the TL2 directory (renamed it actually) and the game started, however, I could see the cursor but both the keyboard and mouse were non-responsive and I had to reboot.

Maybe it doesn't like crossfire on my rig.

Diablo 3 has better graphics but this game has a interesting fun factor that I think is more than the Diablo 3. I only have the demo of TLII and just going by reviews of Diablo 3. For $19.99, that is what games should cost :)

With this game focusing more on the artstyle, I can say that it can rival Diii

How is D3 a rival to TL2? TL2 supports 6 person multiplayer, offline play, and LAN.

Level 21 and about 10hrs in. This game is fun. Figured out strategy that takes out bosses real quick. Not dying as much anymore. The last game I played that is similar to this one was DIABLO 2 back in 2000 or so. Obviously this game blows it out other water. Love the choice for multi-player and single player.

Question, can I use my single player character for online mode?
