#5495 Good News!

Posted by Elyse_Neocore on 27 May 2013 - 09:50 PM

Dear players,

I’d like to share some info about the close future content of Van Helsing. You can expect Scenario mode by a FREE DLC pretty soon. It will be playable in single player and in co-op mode as well. It kicks off with two levels featuring 30+ level monsters and you will have a Lair (with merchants, laboratory, etc.) Monsters respawn in the Scenario (if you leave the game to the main menu and go back). Later we will add new levels, interesting end game scripts, boss fights and unique items. Although we will not increase the level cap instead you can collect “heroic deeds” which boost your character.

Also, thank you for being part of our community.

#4914 The Incredible Adventures Of Van Helsing Changelog V1.0.04

Posted by Elyse_Neocore on 26 May 2013 - 09:18 PM

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.
Major changes include:
The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing v1.0.04
Known issues:
  • The multiplayer game still has some issues. Please play it with a character created for the multiplayer only because data loss may occur sometimes.
Fixed bugs:
  • Fixed several issues with the server list in different resolutions.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause your character to teleport off screen making it  impossible to move.
  • Fixed a bug where you joined a multiplayer game and get “Quest Completed” windows for every quest that the host has completed.
  • Fixed a bug where your character started outside the map when you loaded a multiplayer game.
  • Fixed a bug that could potentially cause inconsistencies in single player after playing a multiplayer game (doors not opening, NPCs missing, etc.).
  • Lady Katarina shouldn't run away from harmful spells if the player is also standing in them (e.g. if the enemy uses Harmful Sigil she does not try to escape if you are also in the area of the spell).
  • Lady Katarina no longer flees from spells that have a very short duration (like explosions).
  • Spirit Guardian no longer aid while Lady Katarina is away for shopping.
  • The Potions used by Lady Katarina are no longer counted for unlocking the Drinker Perk.
  • Fixed an issue with the Sphere of Timelessness. (It no longer causes enemies to become invisible and frozen if you exit and return.)
  • Fixed the tooltip of Earthbound Soul for the Earthquake skill. It reduces the Mana cost by 15% from now on.
  • Fixed an issue of the Inventory at Forge, Enchant, etc. windows. Right-Clicking on an unusable item (i.e. that you can't use on that particular window) no longer try to equip the item.
  • Fixed an issue where summoned monsters could bypass the effect of the Sphere of Timelessness.
  • Ray of Destruction uses Rage properly when using PowerUps.
  • Fixed a major issue with the Lair Siege where the Werewolf companions of Breda were immune to Grind-O-Pit™ traps. (Breda is still immune to all traps thanks to his trap disabling device.)
  • Fixed an issue with the DPS of certain skills.
  • Fixed an issue with elevators and direct moving.
  • Fixed an issue with the Puddle of Goo (not having a proper effect and not being clickable).
  • Fixed the crash at the end of the second Lair Siege.
  • Fixed an issue where you could end up stuck in the Lair after quitting and returning while the Siege was in progress.
  • Vrikolaks in the Werewolf Den spawn properly.
  • Fixed an issue where Vrikolaks spawned out of the map.

#4801 Read Before Posting! - Bug Workarounds Until They Get Patched

Posted by Megapull on 26 May 2013 - 04:33 PM

Hello fellow hunters,


you'll find some bug workarounds here that will allow you to play until they will get fixed. Please note that these may not always work for you.


---> Updated: 2014  May 09 <---




1. Game does not start (APPCRASH after starting the game)


  • Fully exit Steam, including from the Windows Task bar.
  • Using Windows Explorer, go to the root Steam directory. For most people, this is C:\PROGRAM FILES\STEAM
  • Delete the following files: "AppUpdateStats.blob" and "ClientRegistry.blob".
  • Restart Steam
  • Also be sure to install all things from "InstallUtils" folder, it can be found in the game's library.


2. 0Xc000007B Launch Error

  • The solution can be find here

3. Steam overlay not working

  • Close Fraps

4. FPS issues

  • Close Xfire and minimize the Steam window

5. Crash on multiple monitor setup in Portrait mode


Be very careful when editing the registry!

  • Open the Registry Editor (type regedit in Start Menu search or Run)

  • The key is located at HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\NeoCoreGames\Van Helsing\Options\WindowedStyle

  • You will need to set this key to the value of '1'

  • Deleting the ResolutionLevel key also helps by resetting the resolution to a viewable level.


6 SLI not working

  • In NVIDIA, under the 3D Settings, you have to add the VanHelsing_x86 and x64.exe.
  • Under Sli Rendering mode in the 3d control panel for Van Helsing, check "Force alternate Frame rendering 2". Add the exe files to the 3D settings.

7 Game stutters, and no VGA update, cache verification helps

  • You need to add VanHelsing_x64.exe and VanHelsing_x86.exe to the exceptions of Microsoft Security Essentials.

8 Crash upon start for Win 8.x systems

  • Exit the game.
  • Start Regedit by using the Run command and type in regedit, then hit Enter.
  • Find the following key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\NeoCore Games\Van Helsing\Options
  • Find the parameter MeasuredHardwarePerformance, and set it to 0.

9 Black screen at start on Mac Systems

  • Head to the Neocore folder in your Documents Library, there you will find a file "NeocoreRegDB.reg" delete it.
  • Also try to disable the Steam Overlay. To do this, head to Steam Settings and check In Game tab. Clear the stick from "Enable the Steam Overlay while in-game"

#1619 [Spoilers] Maps And Essences

Posted by Mortarion on 01 May 2013 - 02:01 PM

Hello everyone! I know that exploring every inch of the map isn't for all of you. Maybe you even missed something and have no idea what to do with it. Well, I marked the locations on the maps of the 2 major zones in the current beta. BUT, I encourage everyone to explore! It is one of the most rewarding parts of this game and will give you a much more interesting experience. Talk to every npc you find as well!


Croakwood: http://img18.imagesh...2/croakwood.gif


I did 2 separate maps for Gallowsbog. The first map has the 8 runestones marked on it. Touching these will give you a 10% magic find buff each and when you get all 8 the Forest Spirit will spawn near the bridge. The second map just has the general secrets.


Gallowsbog Runestones: http://img339.images...grunestones.gif

#4737 [Official] Leaked Banner Of The Van Helsing Sequel!

Posted by Megapull on 26 May 2013 - 02:24 PM



In Van Helsing 2, the player will take control of Eddie Van Halen, a 21th century relative of the famous monster hunter. Eddie will encounter various rock concerts where he needs to play outrageous solos in order to prevail. Also, there will be a new duel mode where the player needs to  outrock other famous band players.

The player can set up his own guitar set, farming the recipes for amplifiers, pickups and the newest distortion pedals. Beware! The most epic amp patterns are guarded by rock legends!


(I am not a master of Photoshop, sorry, and yes, this is a joke thread.)

#3435 Did You Know...?

Posted by Slan on 23 May 2013 - 09:57 PM

Did you know...

...that you can compare a ring in your inventory to both your equipped rings? Holding the Ctrl key while hovering your mouse over a ring in your inventory will compare it to your second ring while normally it would compare it to your first one. Right-clicking while holding the Ctrl key will also swap the ring with the second one instead of the first (ie. you always switch with the currently examined ring). The currently examined equipped ring is indicated by a '*' after its name.

#1579 Am I The Only One?

Posted by Pinkie on 30 April 2013 - 05:08 PM

Well, this is the Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing.


Let me tell you a story...


There was a time when monsters weren't so kind to drop gold when killed. Those were hard times for hunters like Abraham.

He was so busy hunting down horrid creatures, he didn't pay attention to his pockets.

When he arrived in town, he had nothin' but a few gold coins left. Barely enough to spend a night.

A dark skinned guy with a golden tooth approached him just after he paid for a room.

The guy said:"Hey brother, wanna make some money? You have something that women would pay for."

Abraham was planning to leave the town the day after so he agreed to work for this guy for that night...


Nobody can tell you where Van Helsing was on this day, but one thing is certain... he returned with a lot of gold.

#13015 Suggestion For Vh2

Posted by Renevent on 19 September 2013 - 03:45 PM

One of the things I disliked about Van Helsing is how dual wielding required a single slot weapons that represented 2 swords/pistols.  I think it would be a lot cooler if we instead had two equip slots and could mix and match 1 handed swords/pistols.  That would enable us to not only mix items for visual flair, but also allow us to utilize stat mixing to better customize our character.


I also think this limitation reduces other gameplay options like offhand items (foci, spellbooks, shields, etc)


My suggestion:


-Add a 2nd equip slot for offhand

-Make 1hd swords/pistols single slot items

-Add some new items types like foci/spellbooks/shields/etc


Anyways loved the game and looking forward to both VH2 and the new DLC coming next week...keep up the great work!

Posted by MattTheHuman on 06 June 2013 - 02:36 AM

I'm guessing google translate helped you with your post?

If you don't like the game, don't play it. If you want to see it get better, complaining in the way you have won't do anything.

Maybe try posting the bugs you've found, that are not already known and being worked on, or try to help the community.
