    My boyfriend and I bought Dredmor outside of Steam (Humble Bundle) and we'd would love to play the new expansion since it's free and all, but I'd kinda prefer not to install Steam 'cos I'm really picky about what I put on my computer. How do I get and install the free expansion?

    Good question. At current, I do not think there is an answer. Give it time. They will get it out for you soon.

    I believe they were working on getting it on Desura (which has standalone downloads but given that it's merely an expansion I'm not sure how it would work.)

    I'm going to ask around and I'll get back to you when I know what the plans are.

    Does someone awesome want to make a torrent for this? Seriously, that'd be fine - it IS a free expansion.

    Edit: We're going to set one up once we're done moving desks around the office.

    I'm not sure about making a torrent, but if it's alright with you, here is a link to a packed copy of the "expansion2" folder.


    If anything else is required, just let me know or something. Alternatively, if you don't like the idea of it being uploaded like that, just remove the link or tell Daynab to do it.

    All I'm wondering is if there's any files missing. Does the expansion overwrite dredmor.exe or does it use the same patched up exe without it? hmm.

    It uses the same exe as the patch.

    This is just a bump post. I am seeding right now. Enjoy and please bother to seed it yourself too. There is not risk involved. This is free and the Gaslamp Games crew approve of us seeding it to everyone who wants it. :)

    I will switch over to seeding the official Torrent once one comes around. Thank you everyone!

    Since it is still going, I presume this works. Thank you to anyone seeding it. (There are currently 9 seeds besides myself.)

    Yeah, I downloaded it last night, and I'll seed whenever my torrent client's open. Works fine, even though I'm on linux, and this is (presumably) from a Windows install.

    It is from my Windows system. Zipped with 7 Zip.

    As a matter of fact, here are the exact settings I use in 7Zip. I doubt anyone will care, but these are the settings I use for archiving anything for Windows users. I actually prefer Rar as an archive format. But this works almost as well, and is more compatible.

    This image is just the important parts. And it is not any real content. I just right clicked my DoD shortcut and used the 7Zip menu to select "Add to Archive".

    The latest version is 1.0.11, so you should update. If you're on Steam and it won't update for some reason try reinstalling.

    Every time I see this thread on the What's New page, I think, "I never knew that Nyarlathotep had a little brother..."

    If it was the Humble Bundle, it came with Steam keys. I just checked my copy of that bundle to verify this.

    I hate Steam, so I can understand not wanting to use it, but you only need to redeem your key and download the game. Then copy the "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\dungeons of dredmor" directory as it is out of there and you can safely uninstall Steam altogether if you want. I copied the DoD game to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Dungeons of Dredmor\" and made a shortcut and it works perfectly.

  20. Or you can get it from Desura. They don't force you to install their app. :)
