Troika Games' The Temple of Elemental Evil used an updated version of the Arcanum engine, but unlike Arcanum, its WorldEd editor was never released to the public. The lack of a proper editor has been a serious obstacle to modding this promising but flawed game, although modding collectives such as the well-known Circle of Eight have nevertheless made heroic efforts to develop their own tools over the years. But all that might change now. This Sunday, an anonymous leaker known only as "Temple of Elemental Kurwa" left a message in Polish on our forums. Here's an English translation of the relevant parts:

1. Download the official Polish 2.0 patch (e.g. https://www.gram.pl/pliki_szczegoly.asp?id=321)
2. Create an empty folder, and create an empty text file called ChangeLog.txt
3. Run the patch and choose that folder as destination.
4. Congratulations! You now have WorldEd.


Yes, you read that right. TToEE's official editor was included with the game's Polish version all along. Somehow, all these years, nobody ever found out about it. Incredible.

You mean an entire country failed a perception roll for like 12 years? FFS Poland!

BRB, checking all BR patches.

I can easily see how this happened.
In earlier days, patching was just zipping the programmers game folder, maybe with a self-extracting executable. Manually, of course. Done by the programmer, because only he dares to touch those nasty bits and bytes.

Someone just forgot to delete some files.
It really is as crazy as it is understandable that nobody ever noticed. Why would you look for something like that in a patch?

Now people will certainly look at all Polish patches of every game ever released, just to find something hidden.

If they (community) can fix the engine instability with these tools theb great, if all we get out of this are a bunch of fan fiction quality mods, then I couldn't care less.

doubt it.

We need to remember that we don't know if that editor even is in finished form. This ed my be as well some old build which was for some reason archived and shipped with patch...

Still i think this is whay Co8 team doing right now:

I read the original instructions, and I believe you also need a kurwa to run it.

Guess that now the modders will be able to give the game more... Polish.
