To be able to use the ingame store, you need to turn it on first.


You can set the ingame store in two ways. You can either check the option Enable Shop Mode in the options in game


or you can turn it on/off in the options:

  • Open the file [user data directory]\Options.ini with notepad (or any other editor)
  • Search for the following line: enableingamestore = and put 0 to turn the ingame store off and 1 to turn it on.
  • Save the file
  • Start the game
