Hey guys, just dowloaded the Ice and Blood expansion from DLgamer. Dowload went completely fine and dandy, and I decided to install patch 2.64 and 2.65 off of the Sacred2.com update page. After all downloads and patches were completed, I fired up the game to jump into the new world of Ice and Blood. Unfortunately, this game doesn't like me for some reason and its goal is to make me go crazy . The game brings up the first loading screen with a black background, the blue sacred 2 logo in the center, and the orange text that comes up along the bottom left corner. Two things stood out to me
1. The first line reads: Sacred2: Ice & Blood- V2.65.2 Build 1837 Language EN_UK
Directly underneath that line says: Online Activation Disabled
2. The second thing I noticed was under the line that says: Setup Managers...
Underneath that says: Input Manager:Unable To Acquire Devices!
The screen stops here and does not change or crash or anything. While alt+tabbing out of the program to close it, I noticed that a box flashed for half a second then disappeared. After this occured, I tried to alt tab back to Sacred 2, but I found that it was no longer possible. Wierdly enough, the game apppeared to still be running on the task bar. So I attempted to click on it, but no dice. It would not maximize the screen from the task bar. Because I am running on a Windows 7, I hovered my mouse over the icon on the task bar to see what it would do. This is the screen I got:
As I screen will not maximize, I cannot click the stupid Next-> button. Sacred 2 Fallen Angel worked perfectly and was patched to 2.43 just for some extra info. Not sure if you need it but I'll post the DxDiag:
