The Community Patch for Sacred 2 Fallen Angel Ice & Blood works with versions 2.65.1 and up.
How do I know what Version I have?
Marcus wrote a nice little Tool for Sacred 2. It displays the version of the binaries, as well as the registry keys corresponding to your Installation for control purposes. But it does a lot more than that!
Run Sacred 2 with various exec flags (like -skipopenal...) just by marking the corresponding checkbox and klicking the start button.
Send a refresh signal (Ctrl+F1) to the running game in custom regular intervals. (Just enter a value greater than 0 in the [min] textbox.)
You can get it here (Net Framework 2.0 and 3.5 needed):

What does the CM-Patch actually do?
Marcuswob is mainly working on the questscripts. Main goal is to have a proper(!) questlog, and tweaking some quest-flow as we find it better/more consistent to play. Also reactivation of unused quests and complemeting some unfinished new ones has been and will be done if possible.
I am pretty much working on all of the other stuff. (Items, Bosses, Monsters, odds and ends...) This includes unlocking Stuff thats already finished, but did for some obscure reason not make it to the game. Thats the easiest part. Completing unfinished items, some legendaries and uniques or the T-energy-sets (= wrappings of mutation. ) takes a lot more time. Also balancing of bosses, items and spells is time consuming and we need a big crew of beta testers!
We already fixed and included in the Patch:
Unlocking XMAS-Island, Fistweapons, Throwing Potions, New Sets for TG, SW and all Chars, New Uniques, New Legendaries, New Quests, fixed the "Arkenmarks Refuge" Dungeon, Unlock Items can drop regularly, unavailable Shrinkheads can drop now and various other fixes and additions too numerous to mention all here. Just read a bit in this thread.
Before we proceed to the Download link, there is some legal stuff to mention (you know how it is. ):
This is a private, non-profit patch for the amazing Sacred 2 community. Use it at your own risk. We are not responsible for any damage to chars, data or hardware, that (may) arise or issue from using this product.
DOWNLOAD: Current version is: v0150.
The ZIP includes two files: cm-enable.exe which is used for installing the CM-Patch, and cm-diable.exe which removes it and restores your previous version of Ice & Blood.
The Patcher can't find my Sacred 2 Installation...
This is most probably because some Mod or other thing changed your quest.txt in your Sacred 2/scripts/server/ folder. The patcher uses this file to determine the current version. Try to remove the Mod causing this or reinstall/repair your Installation.
The Patcher threw an error, what should I do now?
If the Patcher threw a file error during the patch process, it means the reported scriptfiles are for some reason changed. I made an s2reset tool to reset all files altered by the cm-patch to the state of Ice & Blood version 2.65.x.
Please don't try this on a Sacred 2 Classic installation (without Ice & Blood). For technical reasons it will run and mess up your files!
