  1. The most likely reason is that you are missing some shader files or the folders have somehow been hidden due to an incorrect file path or file name. I would do a fresh reinstall of the game after running a complete malware scan and after cleaning your cache. Without more information I cannot tell you for certain what caused the issue. If it's a shared computer that leaves even more possible causes which may have led to the problem you reported. Before you reinstall, you may want to update Windows, your graphics card's driver, and de-fragment your PC. If you have a SETA drive it may be wearing out. Is making a clicking sound at almost regular intervals? If so, you may want to upgrade to a SSD as your drive could last another year or more or could cease to function with little warning. Whatever drive you have it's always best to back up the important files that you have on an external drive or drives for safekeeping. I recommend two Solid State Drives. Your main drive should run Windows and the other may be used to run the game. Your performance would be better that way. I hope this advice helps. Start with the simplest solution at the beginning of my reply and see if that cures the problem.

  3. Installation of CmPatch with Steam?

    You are most welcome. I do recall someones who were using the Steam version and experienced some technical Steam-related issues. That's why I am posting the link below, in the unlikely event you have need of help and desire quick suggestions. Within it there are, among other help ideas, links to the Steam forums which others have found useful.
  4. Community Patch 160 Bug Reports

    That's what I am using and I see that you posted that earlier; I'm sorry for missing it. I can't help but think that there are game files left over from an earlier installation. Since it's not working properly anyway, I would suggest a complete uninstall down to deleting any left over data, folders, and shortcuts relating to or used by the game which are not shared by other applications. Do not delete anything of which you are uncertain. After uninstalling it again, reboot your system and clear your cache. You may find CCleaner if you don't have it but I would download it from the developers site directly and get the freeware version. Please note that it will clear Windows temp files and Sacred 2 may take three attempts before it will launch after using CCleaner. Before installing the CM Patch and after reinstalling Sacred 2 Gold, open the game until you see the Main Menu. Now you may install the CM Patch 1.60. The game should now launch properly. If Sacred 2 Gold was launching before using the CM Patch 1.50 I cannot see any reason why it won't launch after a fresh reinstall, a re-boot, Launching to the Main Menu and then an installation of the CM Patch 1.60. That's why I suggest that you check the thread that I linked to below if you are still experiencing any issues. Although another member was having a similar issue and he was using the Steam version, there are some things that I suggested that could be causing the issue when using either version. Please let me know when you get the game working.
  5. Installation of CmPatch with Steam?

    After you install the CM Patch 1.60 there's no need for the hot fix, as everything is fully integrated because its not a beta version anymore. You can download the final and complete version here. You may want to read up a bit on it there before proceeding with the install to ensure that you have the correct version of Sacred 2. Before installing you need to know that your previously saved characters will be bugged and you will want to create new characters. Also, it should install properly unless you have any mods or have made any modifications. I am running the GOG version so I don't have any experience in installing the Steam version. However, if you encounter any issues, there are other members here who have successfully installed the Steam version and would be eager to help. Please let us know when you get the CM Patch 1.60 installed and functioning properly, as we all want to see that you are successful doing so and are able to enjoy the game with all of the marvelous changes. You will especially appreciate the fact that the issue of game crashing has been virtually eliminated. The entire change log is quite an extensive read.
