In Topic: Windows 10 64 Bit, Elite Textures, PhysX Enabled = Crash

From memory the game has a slight memory leak so will crash on pretty much anyone's computer after some time. Playing the game at high resolution with the highest quality settings results in a much shorter time until the crash.

 

I also think the windows version has something to do with it. A few people had trouble running it on Windows 8 / 10, so perhaps you could try playing around with the compatibility settings in Windows?

Already tried all compatibility settings and same results. I am running at 4K so that would explain why it crashes so quickly. The only thing I've been able to produce different results with is patching sacred2.exe (GOG version) with the 4GB flag and it doesn't memory leak but it will crash to desktop around 5-10 minutes as well. Spent two days trying everything I've found on the Internet to no avail.

I would just dual boot Windows XP but I have a brand new PC and I can't find XP drivers for mobo or my GTX 1080 TI.

Not sure what to suggest then...

 

I *think* czevak or one of the other CM patch developers prepared a tool which would flush the memory at predetermined intervals. If you can find it it might be worth a shot? I'm fairly sure it was linked on the site here, but whether or not it is still available to download I couldn't be certain.

 

Edit: Not quite what I was thinking of, but have a look through this thread for someone else who tried to get Sacred working on Windows 10 with some success.

Almost everyone prefers the metric system...
