Welcome to the forums! I hope the CM patch fixes up your problems and lets you enjoy the game to it's fullest potential :lol:




#6991701 [REL] Diablo 2 Fallen

Posted by Dragon Brother on 28 July 2017 - 02:29 AM

You guys are working out how to do even more stuff :) I don't know how you manage to keep up with it all, because I sure can't. Looking forwards to hearing more about it though.

 

Regardless, awesome work on another release!




#6991546 Spiderman homecoming... awesome!

Posted by Dragon Brother on 14 July 2017 - 01:37 AM

I quite enjoyed it too, bit of fun escapsim!

 

This movie wasn't about franchise building, universe epical moments or massive alien invasions... just a small, local neighborhood kid trying to find his way after being bit and getting super powers.

Yeah, given the Marvel universe is well set-up they didn't really need to do any building which helps. It sure beats another origin story for spiderman (or batman or any other character that we've already seen before!).




#6991234 [Dev] Diablo 2 Fallen mod for Sacred 2

Posted by Dragon Brother on 08 June 2017 - 04:42 PM

That's definitely awesome!

 

Great work to you and pesmontis! Can't believe how much stuff is gradually getting unlocked for a game that at the beginning we never thought would be capable of being modded.




#6991085 Windows 10 64 Bit, Elite Textures, PhysX Enabled = Crash

Posted by Dragon Brother on 27 May 2017 - 06:31 PM

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.

Imperial => Empire

 

Almost everyone prefers the metric system...

Best place that I recall farming was constantly fighting the nameless guardians again and again. 4 of them plus the egg gave you 5 big drops in a short period of time and was easy to repeat.




#6990922 Sacred 2 Downloads - Community Patch

Posted by Dragon Brother on 12 May 2017 - 05:49 PM

You can hardly call that a secret quest; it's most likely some leftover developer stuff that was never removed and so the CM team decided to clean it up. There is no quest to complete though, simply click on some people and get rewards (and I think there is a unique mount salesperson in there somewhere too) so I guess they figured it something that didn't need to remain.

 

I'm sure I recall it being mentioned in a patch note or in some discussion on this forum when it was done...

I'll try get around to it over the weekend. The study is still a bit of a mess (girlfriend and I recently moved in together and we're still sorting out a home for everything, nearly there though)!

heh,its true...year after year FDM finds  a way!

:viking:

Now we just wait and wonder if there will be some form of spiritual successor to Sacred to bring us all back together (or even less likely Deep Silver release a true sequel)...

I can dig the excitement, especially the love of something new.

 

My computer died recently (motherboard got fried) so I took the opportunity to upgrade to a mini-itx solution which is much smaller than the giant box I had previously (easily half the footprint or less), but still will fit a full sized graphics card. I could have gone smaller, but was limited by my current graphics card so if in future I replace it I may go even smaller in case size.
