Separate TestLive Product on Steam

We heard your input regarding the inconvenience with having to switch back and forth between the main game and our TestLive servers. To make it easier for you and because we really value your testing and feedback, we added a separate product for the TestLive server on Steam.

If you own Conan Exiles on Steam, you should now see a separate Product called “Conan Exiles - Testlive Client” in your library which gives you the option to install an additional instance of the game specifically for the TestLive servers. Please be aware that this will prompt you for a full additional installation.

We are aware that not everyone wants install or has space for two full installations. For those of you who don’t want to play through the additional TestLive Client, you can still access the TestLive servers through our old method.


The beta watermark with revision number is still absent from the bottom right corner of the screen. Is this intended?

this patch is best :smiley: crafting fixes , now everything what is smelted crafts instantly . 3000 hardened bricks in 3 seconds :smiley: not bad hehehehehe best fix ever only needed T4 purge thrall :smiley:


Not all the time working, but yesterday i maked base expansion on t3 just because of 3000+ hardened bricks in 3 seconds :smiley:

this bug is there since a very long time , I don’t know what triggers it , but when you have 500+ oil in firecamp or any bench that use oil / bark , to work will act strangely from time to time and insta cook or smelt or tan all what’s inside in a few seconds , I lost a lot of good fishes ( improved fishtraps) with this bug turning them instantly to cooked fish then putrid meat , in the other hand when it happens on smelting stations it feels better but dirty like an exploit … ( aslo the 1000 oil I have turn almost instantly to 520 ~ 550 oil remaining )

so now I always turn on fire before putting my fish to cook , at least the only thing I loose is the ~400 oil

Hey @bbtech,

From the original thread:

The “bug” being that the revision number is also shown on PC Live, not just TestLive (correct, @Jim1?).

This was fixed in the June 29, 2020 PC hotfix:

Removed build revision call-out from the bottom corner of the screen.(1)

Do you no longer see a revision number on TestLive? (this could be unintended);

They’re seperate clients, but it’s possible TestLive had its revision number removed as well, since it’s running a version in which the revision number has been removed for Live. I personally don’t know if TestLive is supposed to display this revision number, though.

I believe this test patch has the under-mesh/green wall fix in it. Saw some posts where people are reporting dying from out of play are in caves. So tweaking before they can release it i am sure.

Hopefully as long as needed to avoid major bugs.


That bug exists since a very long time, works with any bench or workplace, as far as i have seen, it doesn’t “insta-craft” everything but reduces the crafting time as if the thrall were there since the begining

Correct. The revision number is not being displayed in the Testlive client.

I personally don’t know if TestLive is supposed to display this revision number, though.

It used to display the revision number, which is why I asked instead of just calling it a bug.

would be a good surprise if so, but as nothing said about that in patch note, let’s hope you are right :slight_smile:
