Thank you for replying to my question about how to hide the HUD in Sacred 2 (Gold). Unofortunately, I have no idea how to "erase all the interface textures so that they're invisible (open each file and erase it, making it transparent)". I found some "graphics#.zip" files that contain user interface .dds files; but it does not matter what I do with them (the game shows no effect). I even completely deleted archives containing textures for the UI, but the UI remains unchanged when I launch the game. I am no modder, and I really need someone more knowledgeable to help me. This would be my favorite game if I could turn the HUD off. Is there any chance that you (or anyone reading this thread) would be willing to asssist me? Even if you could tell me what files need to be modified, that would be a great help. I play with Elite textures (but I do not know whether that has any bearing on the UI). Anyway, if you have an idea, or could offer some instructions for a nubie, I would be most grateful.

Actually, I would be happy playing even if I had to be careful not to click the hidden HUD elements. I know it is not perfect, but it would still achieve the immersion that is a sine qua non for me. Game functionality might be awkward, even frustrating, but it would be worth it to me. If you do know of a simple way to pull it off, please let me know. Of course, I have no expectation that you should invest real time in this for me; I am just hoping you may know of a relatively easy solution. Thank you for the time you have already given in replying to these inquiries.
I spent hours trying to solve what I think should be a simple tweak to Sacred 2 Ice & Blood (v2.65.2) but found nothing of help. All I wish to do is to turn off the user interface / HUD in game. The screen is far too cluttered for any real sense of immersion. Is there any method you could propose (or generously create) to hide the HUD? I am sure many others would enjoy it as well. Thank you for considering this.
Editing the autoexec.cfg to have "MaxFps" "30" in addition changing the additional options to the following should fix it:
[X ] Disable DirectX 6 commands
[X] Enable optimized surfaces
[X] Enable poly gap fixing (slower)
[X] Enable triple buffering
You could choose "Always specify these command-line parameters" to help the game to force these options, even if you leave that particular field empty.
(I think this for Fallen Angel the base edition)
Depends on if you want to just make the HUD invisible or actually want it gone so that it doesn't exist anymore.
You also have to think about what exactly you want removed. You say the interface, but that would include the inventory, skills window, CA windows, journal. I'm assuming you just mean the HUD.
The most basic answer would be to erase all the interface textures so that they're invisible (open each file and erase it, making it transparent), but all the invisible buttons would still be there and would be "in the way," in a sense, because you could click them.
I have no idea if kohoka's solution above would work.
Does anyone know if there exists a way to turn off the user interface / HUD in game. The screen clutter simply spoils the sense of immersion for me. If there is a way to hide the HUD, or if anyone could create a mod preventing it from rendering, I would be exceedingly grateful. Thank you for considering this.
