  1. I feel with you, It is really best if you remember the funny and good moments. When we visit the grave of my dad we often laugh, because it are the funny moments with him I tell to my kids. Not able to see him anymore before dying... I have very mixed feeling about this. My grandpa was just getting weaker and weaker and the whole family could say good bye. My dad, he had several strokes and was not able to breath anymore without machines. After 3 weeks I was asked for an okay to turn of the machines. His body was trying for 3 more hours to breath and I felt guilty to gave the okay. T

  2. I'm sorry to learn about what you are going through now, Theuns. Loosing a close family member is one of the most difficult things that we human creature have to endure; losing one's mother is likely the hardest of all. I'm sure that I speak for the rest of the team here that our hearts go out to you at this time.

  3. Welcome to DarkMatters, Miklas. Both of the games are available (DRM-Free) at GOG and often they are deeply discounted. There, you can add them to a wish list and you will be notified via email when either of them are on sale; they usually offer them for only a few dollars.

  4. Olm is the German name for a very strange real existing beast: The Grottenolm, cave olm. It is a kind of albino blind aquatic cave salamander. Olms are somehow mudpuppies who never leave there cave. They are albino, blind, with no pigment cells, die in the sun, ... In the ice age most of the caves were connected. and they were more often. Now cave divers and tourists made it that they only existat a few places still They have a lifespan of more than 100 years but a very frustrating sexual life laying only eggs once in all this time. They can life 10 years without feeding, .. T

  10. Hello and welcome. I am biased since I worked on CM Patch and Enhanced Edition but IMO those two are all you need for the best experience. Character Editor is good for cheating and experimentation. Wardust's mod has gotten a little out of date and doesn't have good compatibility with Enhanced Edition anymore. Also in EE I did lots of texture changes of my own (lots of HQ/Elite textures added for formerly low-resolution ones) so that wouldn't play too well with Wardust.

  11. Aroma -> Scent Used one of these as a training tool in a wine bar I worked at in China. It was really useful. It's kind of hilarious how bad people are at identifying a scent without any kind of visual aid. We know what a strawberry smells like, but because we're usually holding a strawberry when we smell it; our brains never really develop the particular vocabulary to identify something by just the smell.

  13. Hey there, nice to see there are peoples still playing this game today. I used to play it 10 years ago on PS3. Today I get it on PC and am discovery the Ice&Blood extension. So many things have changed compared with console version. The game seems way harder, even in bronze! Thank you for sharing your build. A few remarks: - Why not adding Clustering Maelstorm at the beginning of combo 2? - Are combo 3 and 5 the same ones? - I really like dislodge spirit, even unmodified it really helps dealing with bosses/champions. Don't you use it at all?

  16. Ahh, yes. The remarkable absence of a key feature in the any description. Kind of like they failed(forgot? any plausible explanation?) to implement auto-switching items between the PC inventory and the current chest tab. Well, that won't be a problem anymore soon enough.

  18. Part of what I currently do, although those are new NPC spells. The character selection is rigid, due to the, in all honesty, weird interface solution: the hardest thing in the game code is to try and add a new button.

  19. The twins got their second shot now. It is still a mixed feeling because experts may say hü (gee) today and the next day hott (haw) about a vaccinication of kids. But how will they know effects on kids without trying. Currently no bad effects and antibodies are okay. The muscle with the shot was half a degree hotter than normal for half a day. I always said using the greek alphabet could be a mistake, it has to few letters. Almost half of them are already used for variants.

  23. weather -> spider If a spider is working on its net outdoors you can bet it stays sunny and dry. If the spider leaves the mid of the net and no prey it will rain, if a spider does big nets exspect cold days... The twins earn some pocket money by reporting when certain birds are first seen, leave, certain plants start to blow, and spiders ,,, The natural institute for weather research pays for the reports.

  33. Kangol -> Pesthut (plaque doctors hat) I have some stray hats, a Jägerhut (belonging to a uniform for hunters) and a very broad leather hat from a medieval motto party which I still use when doing outdoor work at heavy storm. It was with a costum for plague doctors, beak-mask, leather cape and a broad leather hat. The hat could also be used for musketeer like roleplaying at Mittelaltermärkte (medieval markets where people do old professions, roleplay,....). Main reason to visit them was the good music ;)

  34. olm -> Hermann's cave There live some in the cave. an olm: Around 12km away from the Brocken, the mountain where witches meet each Walburgis night. I visited the cave while at army because we did a winter maneuvre which turned into a rescue mission near the Brocken. People ignored storm warnings. at the foot of the Brocken it were 50km/h storm on top over 200... Back to the olm, I wonder why it is not mentioned in sacredwiki. Olms are albino cave salamanders who stay aquatic and never reach an adult state. "Etymology The word olm is a German loanword that

  35. I bed this is easier if you have an open place near your house already. A century ago the place was for a lokomobile driving big saws. Then it was used to store old machines and bushes grew between them. Bushes are no opponent for a chainsaw with a one metre blade ;) If you really want one, some geoplast explosives to get clear of the neighbour houses ? ;) Relatable -> portable engine We could say our heliport relates back to the time of the lokomobile. Europeans say lokomobile for old steam driven portable engines, because there was an US company named Locomobi

  36. Hi I just once again play Sacred, and I've always wondered what is this green thing? https://imgur.com/a/9zusAeb https://imgur.com/a/89ENknm I saw in many places, Are these are dragon eggs or some boulders, are these part of some hidden quest?

  37. pregnancy -> H Our first was born when we were both at university and the university hospital just a street away. When my wife was pregnant with our second we lived countrysife and the calculated date was exceeded by a week already. She was nervous (docs know all the symptoms for bad stuff and she, as one, was all the time searching for them the more she was overtime). I told her to relax, 5 possible routes from and to the hospital. At the next "what if" I left the house and got a chainsaw. After one hour I painted a big 'H' on the now plain and open field. I went back to her and said:

  38. expensive -> Dondurma (wanted to post it already at orchids) Very elastic Turkish ice cream from testicles(*), goat milk, ... which is very resistant to melting at the turkish climate. The name orchid comes from the Ancient Greek ὄρχις (órkhis), literally meaning "testicle", because of the shape of the twin tubers in some species of Orchis. It are these tubers which are used for the icecream. It is so expensive because funny icecream makers often steal it back when you bought it using its elasticity. There is one selling it at a bus stop close to the school of our twins.

  44. Cult Comedy -> Hedwig and the Angry Inch This remains one of my favorite movies. I fully understand why it never really appealed to the mainstream when it first came out. But as a teenager struggling with feelings of loneliness and rejection for just being who he is, this film struck a very deep chord. Even now I find the musical numbers extremely endearing, and the film is beautifully acted. What is funny though, is that this film was adapted into a brilliant Broadway musical starring Dexter's Michael C. Hall; and more recently, How I Met Your Mothe

  46. Thank You very much for this awesome mod! After more than 10 years I am hooked again to Sacred Underworld and have alot of fun. But one question: I have started new with Gladiator and could not find any shoulder pieces for Gladiator until now at level 25. Only for other classes. Is it missing luck, is it an new rule or is it a bug? Thanks for Your help!

  47. Hey, Narjnaar, here's an easy way to change the look of a buff (or any spell, really) without having to turn off the buff display from the options menu: You can change the Bark animation to anything - I've changed it to the Inquisitor's Reversed Polarity animation on one character and to the Sinister Predator animation on another character. This way you can still see the cool-looking Sinister predator buff without having to suffer the ugly Bark animation. The process is quick and simple, just read through that thread. And remember to back-up your spells.txt file before tweaking it,

    Hi! Relatively new to posting on forums and retexturing here. There was a handful of helpful guides I've read from this site when I was new to Sacred (I still am) and thought I should post these to somehow give back and also because somebody out there may like one of the designs I've made. Please go easy on me I'm no pro at Photoshop. Still, I probably had more fun editing than I should, thinking it was RPG dress-up. Makes you feel like an ar-TISTE I've chosen the Daemon (or "Demoness" since Daemon sounds like a virtual CD drive to me) because she has wings, can fly, has horns, also the
