We’ve just released a BETA of Trine Enchanted Edition for Mac and Linux on Steam. The BETA also includes a Windows version to allow multiplayer between different operating systems.
Please remember these releases are on BETA stage, so you can still expect to run into a few issues here and there. Taking part in the BETA is free for all who own Trine on Steam. More info and instructions on how to take part below. 🙂
Trine Enchanted Edition is a port of Trine to the Trine 2 engine. It adds online multiplayer, midlevel saving, enhanced visuals and improvements to several gameplay aspects.
Trine Enchanted Edition is a free upgrade to all who own Trine on Steam. Once out of Beta, we will also release the upgrade to DRM free stores. Trine Enchanted Edition does not replace the original Trine in any way, so Mac and Windows users are able to choose the version they wish to play from the game’s launcher.
All BETA users should be able to play together with each other regardless of their operating system. Please note that the BETA is not yet online compatible with the current release version, so online multiplayer with the Windows players during the BETA is only possible if they are also taking part in the BETA.
Launching the BETA requires an access code (“TrineEEBetaNovember2014”). Follow the instructions below to unlock and launch the BETA. Windows users already have access to Trine Enchanted Edition, but they too can unlock the BETA, which enables online multiplayer with Linux and Mac users. Please see the System Requirements for each platform on the Steam Store Page.
1. Open Your Steam Library
2. Right-click Trine and choose Properties
3. Navigate to the BETAS tab
4. Enter the following password to the access code field: TrineEEBetaNovember2014
If the code does not work, try to restart your Steam client.
5. Make sure you have the beta chosen from the upper “Select the beta you would like to opt into:” menu and then close the window.
6. The game should download the update now. If the download does not start, try verifying your game files: Properties → Local Files → Verify Integrity of Game Cache…
Windows and Linux users can skip to step 9.
7. If you are playing on Mac, you will need to open the game from it’s file, so open the Properties Window again and navigate to the Local Files tab and choose Browse Local Files.
8. Mac users can now open the game by launching the trine1 application. It’s located at the _enchanted_edition_ folder.
9. Make sure the Enchanted Edition is chosen from a drop down menu in the game’s launcher when you start Trine.
