The fanpatch, also known as the bugfix patch and community patch, was created by the titanquest.net community when Iron Lore went bankrupt. It started out as a small project to include all known bugfixes known to that date and ended up with a lot more new fixes. The goal of the fanpatch is to give users a better gaming experience by fixing bugs. It does not contain balance changes, but only fixes things that were clearly not intended by the developers.
The fanpatch is widely accepted by the titanquest.net community and has been gaining acceptance in other communities too. The latest version is 1.17a.
To install the fanpatch, you have to have Titan Quest: Immortal Throne expansion. 1.17a can be applied to 1.1, 1.15, 1.16 and 1.17 It is adviced to start the game at least once after installation.
Installing the Fanpatch 1.17a is highly recommended.

Additional Features of v1.17 Edit
- AllSkins mod: a version of the AllSkins mod 0.8 has been included on the 1.17 fanpatch. That means that all the skin bottles from the latest AllSkins mod 0.8 have been added so players can see each others' skins online and trade bottles, and we've also included optional vendors so that players can purchase skin bottles from all versions, past and present, of the AllSkins mod inside the main game. To access this option, use the menu's "Unlock Content" button and type in this code: 123. This will drop 2 artifacts, each of which will spawn the appropriate vendor when equipped. Additionaly, we also included specialty skin vendors for adult skins, dress-mesh skins, and skirtless-mesh skins (unlock code: 12345). Note: a player must be using the dress mesh or skirtless mesh in order to properly display skins purchased from those vendors (only found on the standalone version of the AllSkins 0.8 mod). Also, summoned vendors will not disappear until you exit the game, so we recommend summoning them in a city.
- Custom Item Support: items from some custom-game mods have been included in the patch to prevent their loss when accidentally loading a custom-game character into a different mod or into the regular game. If you bring these items into the original game, they will appear in your inventory as unusable parchments until returned to the originating mod.
Custom mods currently supported:
- Occult 1.0
- Uber 1.1
- StreetFighter BETA
