Perk fixes are exciting!

Only thing on my wish list to have made is to not have crafted items added to equipment lists so that they wont be for sale/offered as tournament prizes. After a while nothing else is for sale (even if you never sell an item).

I can’t enter the multiplayer beta branch for the second update. At boot it says "Could not get access from your platform device".
