  1. hey Gogo I am still having issues using the forums since you changed them to the new design The same issue of not being able to move from page to page within a thread Could it be because I am using Windows 7? Has anyone else reported this issue very frustrating for me; all I get is an infinite loading screen
  2. Well, shortly after I tested the forum and replied to you I came back to Dark Matters and hey presto! it works now I'm now able to navigate the threads, so hopefully whatever it was is resolved and I wont have any further issues I'm back playing Sacred 2 (Dragon Mage) and I enjoy reading the in-depth analyses you and others have written over the years helps me make my skills choices etc Thanks
  3. Hi Gogo No I am still unable to use the forum threads with my PC or phone I can only load the first page of any thread My phone and my PC internet are with different service providers I have gone to a few other forums I use to check that I can use them and I can in all cases So I only have this issue with Dark Matters Very odd - has no one else reported this issue? I will ask a friend to try on their PC & phone and get back to you
  4. I cleared the cache and tried darkmatters.org and still the same issue I can move between threads, but not between pages within a thread So I can only view the first page of any thread I tried Internet Explorer on PC; and I tried 2 browsers with my phone (Chrome & the Samsung browser) I get the same result in all cases - infinite loading screen I cannot go past the first page of a thread on PC or phone in any browser I have
  5. Hi Gogo I'm using Chrome on Windows 7 64bit
  6. Hi I am having problems reading threads because I cannot get any pages after the first page of a thread to load When I want to read the second page I just an infinite loading prompt So I can only see the first page of any thread
  7. I decided to reinstall and start playing Sacred 2 again after a long break I always play Dragon Mage for some reason and I am pleased to see that the Dragon Mage can now take Blacksmithing I think I notice a different spell effect for Energy Blaze; not the casting effect, the after effect on NPCs affected by the spell But not sure about that Thank you to all who have participated in creating the Community Patch and the new 1.60 update
  8. @ Flix I always had a lot of slowdowns and stuttering in towns on my previous rigs; but no crashes. The slowdowns bothered me enough to put the game aside repeatedly with the intention to wait until I had a rig that could run it properly. It was disappointing, but it didn't move me to anti-Sacred raging like some. I came to the conclusion it was a CPU bottleneck due to the code not being well optimised. But that is just a best guess. I am not a programmer. Does anyone know, does the game code run single or multicore? I still had problems on my previous Core2Duo (2.4Ghz). Many older games are unable to use multicores, so how well they run depends on the speed of the individual cores Thus far on my current rig I have had no slowdowns or stuttering or crashes and I am having a blast with the game; finally able to get into it properly.
  9. I always use Nvidia; and I dont use compatibility mode on W7
  10. Very odd; I wonder why that is? Do you use the CM patch?
  11. This is why I chose W7 64Bit when I built my current rig last Christmas
  12. I recently clashed with a character on the Steam forums who insists that Sacred 2 will not run on modern machines or operating systems; meaning anything after XP I think. I think he wants the game removed from Steam; or a warning placed on the store page What is the experience of the vets on this forum? Personally I run the game on an i3 with W7 64Bit and it has never run better Prior to this I had trouble running it - very bad stuttering, especially in towns How about Sacred 2 on W8 and W10?
  13. What does 'malus' mean?

    You are both right And thank you for replies The word is applied to a genus of apple trees; specifically crabapples which are small and sour Could that be why the term malus was applied Or I wonder has it anything to do with the biblical myth of Adam & Eve - in the sense of the sin or evil of Adam & Eve Also used in the sense of a penalty clause The word is a Latin word - in Latin it means bad or evil Strange they chose that word; it is not at all common in English
  14. What does 'malus' mean?

    Thank you Flix Malus is a rarely used word in English I guess it must be a German word?
