  1. These pics are all so awesome! I am constantly amazed by the amount of detail that was put into creating the world of Sacred. Makes me wish there was a free cam mode.
  2. First is a pic of an armor I found, which I unfortunately couldn't use. I thought the name was good. Second is a pic of the random text when you start the game. Had to use a camera to capture it.

    DreD's Skull enhancing quotes for UnBended

    "I, too, chose to join the ranks of Morte and Murray." "And now I know why the Armor skill is important."
  4. I remember the first time I played Sacred (bought the Gold version) and being absolutely wowed by the graphics. I played much more of that game than I did Diablo 2. At that time, I also purchased Titan Quest. Even now, Titan Quest remains unplayed. I still have Sacred and Sacred 2 in my computer. Edit: But back on topic. I mostly play single player, so how loot is divied up doesn't affect me. But I would think, hope even, that players who game together can divy up their loot without causing enmity.
  5. Nudity will affect how the game is marketed, in the US at least. Back when Elder Scrolls 4 Oblivion was released, I believe it was rated Teen. But then a nude mod was released, the ratings board (ESRB in the states) freaked out, and backrated it to Mature. Fortunately it wasn't Adults Only; if a game is given an Adults Only rating, it's pretty much impossible to sell in the states, as far as I know, since retailers don't want to carry it. Of course, the whole ratings board is in my opinion a big sham. But I digress...
  6. It's a difficult rope to walk. In the US, nudity in games is frowned upon more than violence. In other countries, it's the reverse. Personally, I'm fine with or without nudity, since I don't play games for that particular aspect.
  7. I wish I was more creative...but alas, I am not. So it's a rather humdrum statement, I'm afraid. :-)
  8. Just sent a donation and corresponding email for one of these skull. Hopefully I didn't screwup...
  9. Is there a time frame for this? I'm still working up funds to make a donation.
  10. Watched some videos for Sacred 3 the other day, and wow. Looks like something to pick up once it hits bargain price, and not before then.
  11. "What's in a name? that which we call a roseBy any other name would smell as sweet;" Well said, well said!

    Sacred 2 modding Nskins issues

    Forum's not dead; people probably just aren't as interested in newd skins. Especially with all the fantastic armor found in the community patch items mod.

    Range Array - new 'Matrix' style set for the High Elve

    I think it'd be appropriate to quote Neo here: "Whoa."
  14. Wow; it's been so long since I've last navigated to this website...but I fired up my old WinXP PC and played Sacred 2 last night into the wee hours of today. Still had a blast! Not sure what to make of Sacred 3, although from what I read, I'll probably wait for it to hit bargain pricing before buying it. That said, Sacred 2 Gold was finally released on GOG, so for anyone who missed out on Ice & Blood, and who is not using Steam (Sacred 2 Gold was released on Steam a long while ago), it's an option. Unbended looks promising. :-)

    Programs you cant "live" without

    Perhaps it does. I've not used Windows 8, so I cannot say for sure. I -do- know that nVidia's driver software has built in support for extending the taskbar across multiple monitors. ATI's software doesn't (that I know of).

    Programs you cant "live" without

    Program title : ZBar Area of application : Extends/clones taskbar for when using two monitors Recommended because: Free, and has a very small memory print: it's only 2 files, and is <1 MB in size. Download from: http://www.zhornsoftware.co.uk/zbar/ Cost: Free Known drawbacks / limitation: Not as robust as commercial software

    Programs you cant "live" without

    Program title: CCleaner Area of application: Registry/File Cleaner Recommended because: Free, works well, has good functionality. Download from: http://www.piriform.com Known drawbacks / limitations: As this program lets you make changes to your PC, you can hurt your system if you're careless. (Although it lets you make backups before applying changes.)

    Has it been 5 years ?

    I recently fired up Sacred 2 again, and remembered all the fun I had playing it before. So I mosied back to this site only to find that it's changed, and now looks even better. Keep up the great work!
  19. Not sure if it was already mentioned, but the topic here: http://darkmatters.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=14845 Tells you how to edit the "blueprint.txt" file to add sockets to items. Edit: Nevermind, it was mentioned a few posts above.
  20. Whoa! Very neat! I'll see about giving this a whirl... Thanks much!
  21. Do you mean "My Documents\My Pictures\Ascaron Entertainment\Sacred 2"? What OS? Windows XP? My apologies for the lack of info. I'm running XP Pro. And yes, by default the screenshots go to "My Documents\My Pictures\Ascaron Entertainment\Sacred 2". I'm just wondering if it's possible to set a different path for them to be stored, short of changing the default location of My Documents. ;-)
  22. Here's a relevant question: is there anyway to change the default location where the screenshots are saved? By default it saves to My Documents\My Pictures.

    Sacred 2 Mod Compilation - offered to community

    I tried to get a screenshot, but it doesn't catch the flickering eyes. That said, the other version you uploaded works fine for me. :-D
