Sacred 2 Enhanced Edition by Flix
- Sacred 2 Enhanced Edition (S2EE) is the continuation of my work on older mods such as Enhanced Spells and the Community Patch, of which S2EE is meant to be the successor.
- S2EE contains hundreds of bugfixes, as well as numerous gameplay enhancements such as redesigned balance, quality-of-life improvements, and cosmetic changes. Enemies are more challenging, quests are more rewarding, and items are more varied, unique, and useful.
- This mod also features AI-Upscaled Textures that will work if the Elite Textures are installed. These all-new HD textures will be used for the DLC and expansion content which never received any official elite textures.
- S2EE is designed for the player to install the CORE module, then they may install some optional add-on modules.
- See the "Sacred 2 EE Manual.pdf" for full list of modules and features.
Currently supported languages:
- CORE module: English, French, German, Italian, Polish, Russian, Spanish, Hungarian.
- Alternate Spells: English, French, German, Italian, Polish, Russian, Spanish.
- Alternate Spells - Swap out several vanilla combat arts with new custom ones.
- Challenge Mode - Significantly increased difficulty.
- SuperSpawn - Increases enemy spawn count by 2-3x.
- Enhanced Music - A game-wide expansion pack for all regional background music.
- Portrait Overhaul - Revamps all the NPC and enemy icons with new artistic portraits with more character and personality.
- Free-For-All Quests - Makes all quests available in all game modes, and allows all bosses to respawn each game session.
- Classic Icons - Restores the aspect background and combat art icons to vanilla.
- Classic Icons for Alt. Spells - Change the aspect background and combat art icons to the "classic" style.
If upgrading from vanilla or EE 3.0 and below: I HIGHLY advise NEW CHARACTERS or you may have broken spells & quests, re-rolled bonuses on gear, or other odd behavior.
Download the Generic Mod Enabler (GME) and install it to your Sacred 2 root folder.
- Mod Enabler is available at http://www.softpedia.com/get/Others/Miscellaneous/Generic-Mod-Enabler.shtml
- For Steam the root folder is C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Sacred 2 Gold
- For GOG or disk version, the root folder is wherever you installed the game, for example C:\Sacred 2 Gold
- After running the GME once, it will make a folder called "MODS" there.
- Extract/copy/move the contents of the compressed zip file into the "MODS" folder. There should be 9 folders (the Docs folder need not be placed in the MODS folder).
- S2EE contains one CORE module and eight optional add-on modules. You must install "Sacred 2 CORE EE 3.2 - Required" at the very least.
- Run the GME and enable the CORE module. The GME will back up your clean files and will allow to you to easily enable/disable the mod as you wish.
- - Optional - add-on modules should be installed afterward. Do not install any of the add-on modules without the CORE module installed first. Overwrite warnings are to be expected when you install the optional modules.
- This mod requires Sacred 2 + Ice & Blood expansion with the latest patch (2.65.02) installed (or simply Sacred 2 Gold).
- This mod additionally requires that Community Patch 1.60 be installed.
- No previous versions or components of the old Enhanced Edition should be installed.
- No mods that alter scripts will be compatible with S2EE. This includes: Diablo 2 Fallen, Boss Arena, Age of Heroes, Survival Mod, Llama's Mod, Wardust's Mods, Dimitrius's Patch Addendum
- Mods that are known to be compatible: Music Mods, Interface Mods, Main Menu Mods, Reduced Fog, Elite Textures (either official or the unofficial "trimmed" version), and simple texture mods like Eye mod or Grass mod.
Development (Enhanced Spells module):

- Not all properties of a Combat Art update dynamically in the CA tooltip text. This is a pre-existing issue in the vanilla game as well. However rest assured that all properties of Combat Arts should be clearly described in the CA description text and will appear (if applicable) in the Sigma bonus overview and/or character overview.
- Dragon's Wrath cannot go into a combo. No known solution.

What's New in Version 3.2a See changelog
Included new updated German texts with corrections by jwiz.
Fixed Mist of Miasma having extra buff spell - may have caused it to be unresponsive or game CTD.
Fixed a minor typo with Stone Commander equip set entry.
Some rare weapons would sometimes roll an extra bonus for a character class who couldn't use the weapon - these bonuses have been changed to a silver socket instead. This change has no effects on other items or modifiers.
"Children and Demons": Fixed an exploit to sneak around the trigger area at the beginning of the quest in Sloeford to kill the (non-hostile) Black Seraphim twice for extra drops and XP.
"Ancient Bark": Moderately increased the transparency of the new buff FX.
