For those of you having crashes with Sacred 2 gold...

Recommended Posts

The thing I found about Sacred 2 Gold is that it doesn't like 64 bit operating systems. I'm running an early i7 cpu with Windows 7 64bit and I wanted to get this game running with all the bells and whistles, including the Elite Textures. Anyway, I found that combining all the known fixes together actually make this game work - crash free - on my computer and I believe that it will work on yours as well even if you are on Windows 8.1.
So download this file and use all three fixes together. Let me know if it works, thanks!

If however you are having troubles with the original Sacred and Underworld, I just bought a new copy from GOG.com (Good Old Games) in their latest sale for $2.99 (normally $9.99). It workks perfectly on both my old XP laptop and my Win7 64bit machine. They say it works just as well on Win8 and I don't doubt them at all. AND THERE IS NO BLOODY SECUROM!!

FYI, avoid the Sacred 2 Elite Textures on the PC, as they have been known to create problems with mods and community patch. The overall difference with Elite Textures installed is not that great ether.

It's just a zip file containing optionscutom.txt, the 4gig virtual ram enabler, and an updated mss32.dll which I believe stops the memory leak for 64bit windows. I hope it works for you guys!
