CM Patch and existing save files

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

*Edit: Nvm. Just did a forum search rather than Google search and found the answers.*

 

I've only dabbled in Sacred 2 so far making different classses to see how they play. Finally settled on Fire HE to start with a TG already planned. But my question is will installing the CM Patch corrupt/break my current HE save file or will I have to start a new one? Also, I've seen a few people say that 1.60 doesn't work well with the Steam version so is that issue widespread or just a few outlying cases?

 

Thanks.

Can't speak for others, but on my W10 system, the CM patch will not install over the Steam (or Galaxy) version of the game. It works flawlessly with GOG's offline version of the game. If you can spare it, I highly recommend the GOG offline version. Plus it is optimized for W8 and W10, the Steam version is not..

Can't really vouch for Win 10, but on Win 7 everything works nice and easy without any complications.

I think it might be an OS thing, as like Androdion, I have Win7 too and have had 0 issues with the installation or the game so far. My HE save still works too; no broken stats, no missing gear or skills or stashed items. Only thing I've noticed is I have quest markers on the map for quests I completed a few days ago that have just randomly appeared.

Because quest.txt was altered during development, it's highly likely you'll see weird quest behavior, especially from the Epic Office Quest, which will most likely be completely broken if you had already started it before installing 1.60.

You may also notice the stats on several magic/rare items was re-rolled - a side effect of fixing several modifiers in blueprint.txt.

Still, I recommend fresh characters all around.

I kind of figured it was a W10 issue, as I had seen where others are playing with the CM patch on Steam. I couldn't even play the vanilla game on Steam without having to jump through a bunch of hoops. Only way the game would even load was by clicking on the exe inside the folder. Ridiculous. I would rather have W7 back again, but W10 is what came on the new computer I got, so it is what it is I guess..

The patch doesn't have Spanish translations, so you need to change the game's core language in order for everything to work correctly.

2 hours ago, Androdion said:

El parche no tiene traducciones al español, por lo que debes cambiar el idioma principal del juego para que todo funcione correctamente.

I change the language to English and the same thing comes out that the strange thing is that the patch worked for me in Spanish when I reinstalled it was that I started to get this message and then the game starts without texts and I reinstalled it multiple times and not I know what to do so that it works and if I play it without the patch for some reason I still leave at the beginning an incomplete version of the patch

The patch supports all officially supported languages, Spanish included.

Check your locale folder for a file called global.res.  It looks like it's missing.  If so you will need to do a clean reinstall of the game.

I answered on mobile during work hours, and gave my response based on the purported problem given the error message. But looking at it with a bit more calm, yeah, clean reinstall is in order.
