Anyone seen Wonder Woman yet?  I enjoyed the hell out of it.

 

We just saw it... what a terrific movie... bravo!

Definitely one of the best super hero movies I've ever seen... Love Gadot...she's fresh, humble, brave and strong

I hadn't seen a single trailer since I'd heard this was going to be released, and got to see it in AVX today... what a wonderful, imaginative and exciting experience... Chris Pine from Star Trek in it too? Awesome !

p.s.. just love it when she goes Full Goddess at the end ...outstanding

I love this post!  I read through each entry and reminisced about all the variety of places, creatures, and quests.  A wonderful list.

 

How do you like the Music Mod?  Did it contribute to making any of these locales your favorite?

Took me some time to gather the data and decide my favourite for every category.

The Music Mod is fantastic, I think you deserve a special award! After a single complete playthrough with the mod installed, I'm certain that Sacred 2 is no longer whole without it, the enhancement is beyond expectation and the atmosphere in most regions is changed for the better. Your choices fit the surroundings and greatly flavour the gameplay; also, gaming veterans will experience nostalgia and melancholy for old titles. I believe the best tracks are those for the Swamp, they reflect the uniqueness of this region(perhaps the most original), the desperate existence of it's inhabitants and the horrors they have to face.

As for contribution, it was not to individual items listed, but to the entire game. Seeing this flawed gem fixed and perfected convinced me to post this humble tribute.

Bravo for the lauds, Rayna, Flix and his friends have indeed added years to the value of this game of game.  Your support is so appreciated!

Here it is, only a sketch, at level 49 after completion of the campaign on bronze difficulty and exploration to the last corner of the gameworld. I followed it to the detail, including my own spreadsheet of skill points distribution(up to 75 and the possibilities beyond).

#6991391 Funny/Interesting Sacred 2 Screenshots

Beautiful.

 

You might now also notice all the different facial expressions she uses while casting spells or attacking.  The faces of many of the characters, especially the High Elf, are rigged with "bones" which make her have all kinds of expressions when her various attack and cast animations play.  It makes her very lifelike.  It's also one reason why full model replacement isn't really a mod option for the playable characters.  It's nearly impossible to rig all those face bones to match the original model.

I love this info!

#6991307 Single Buff Mystic Stormite High Elf

Posted by gogoblender on 18 June 2017 - 07:52 AM

casting Glacial Thorns just behind a Boss and hearing the awesome sound of all the glacial thorns hiting him with critical hits, I love it; + the fx, so good :wizard: :mellow:

It is!

I remember geting mesmerized by that singular effect while playing the High Elf... this alone was reason enough to have me keep leveling her to Niob in HC...

Sacred 2 got this right...but, and pls tell me if you agree or not... didnt you think the ice shards effect in original Sacred was incredibly potent looking as well?

I finally (and long overdue) installed the Sacred 2 Elite Textures and from now forward one may notice the enhanced detail in my posted screenshots. It's really impressive when one admires all the elements in the game, Buildings, armor, the NPCs, paintings, and, well it seems everything takes on a new, fresh look and feel. Just compare the image above with any of my earlier posts.

I love this Hooyaah

You've kicked up the posts quite a notch by having the textures...I remember myself when running it it would always crash or hang

it like adding a fresh coat of paint on everything...

big yum!

#6991241 [Dev] Diablo 2 Fallen mod for Sacred 2

Posted by gogoblender on 09 June 2017 - 07:02 AM

This is awesome! Where do the actual voices come from?

 

All sounds in Sacred 2 are ogg files and the master list is in soundresources.txt.  Everything from music to voices to sfx are listed here.  Adding the voices here was step 1, and that was the easy part.

 

The hard part was step 2, using soundprofile.txt to connect the voices to the correct quest events.  This text file coordinates every sound and it links to a specific event, from a Fire Bolt's 'whoosh', to Dryad female gossip, to the sound of the High Elf's bare foot on sandy ground.  

 

Quest voices are linked to specific quest events using a CRC32 ID, which Pesmontis learned by decompiling the game's dll files, then he waved a magic wand* and allowed S2rw to generate the CRC32 for the corresponding quest event, which I can then use to connect the voices to the correct quest stage.

 

 

*No clue how he actually did this.

thanks for the writeup Flix... a big bravo for the magic hack, Pesmontis, that perfect world you're all buiilding closer and closer with every day 

:hugs:

#6991168 The Diablo 2 Fallen Items Thread

Posted by gogoblender on 03 June 2017 - 11:09 AM

Hello Flix, I'm new here and I love your mod D2 Fallen!

So I have a question, would it be possible to implant a category of object called "Souls", Powerful items that can be placed on the "Rings" compartment; That one can loot on the bosses? :)

Happy you found your way to our boards, Bogen

Have fun with Flix's Mod, and welcome to DarkMatters!'':)
