  1. Forests: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the young dryad Balanos. Her five month mission: to explore strange new worlds. To seek out new life and new civilizations. To boldly go where no girl has gone before! The dryad was affected by several updates, positive bugs, following nerfs, mods, ... Some guides are really old and outdated. After a nerf some combat arts were never tried again. And then there are questions from new members. Answering the questions becomes harder the more the changes are away from the original which I played. Questions like: Can a dryad be pl

  3. Some interesting findings from looking through vanilla global.res and quest.txt: name = "S_HE_N_nn-Verungluecktes Fuhrwerk 1", is a four-part chain quest that currently does not start, because: It is marked as Seraphim-only, and It is marked as Shadow Path only So it would never appear. I have yet to test with the restrictions removed. EDIT: On further inspection, it appears the developers intentionally used the following combination whenever they wanted to disable a quest entry: reservedforpath = 2, reservedforhero = 1, One such example is the S

  6. Back when original Sacred 2 Fallen Angel was released, a set of high-resolution textures was separately sold, dubbed "Elite Textures". It added extra detail to many items, NPCs, monsters, landscapes, architecture and misc. objects in the game. It also added, sometimes unbearable, lags in crowded places, like cities. The mechanics of said lags is as follows: when "Default" texture option is on, the RAM cache assigned to the game is 210MB by default, when "Elite" texture option is on the RAM cache assigned is 420MB maximum. Yet every large town contains enough units, using hi-res tex

  7. The ability to show the FX is built into the handles of the new models. There's no easy way to turn that off. You could delete all the lightsaber models from graphics26.zip\models\weapons\1h\ but then you'd also have to edit itemtype.txt and change the models back to the vanilla models in each lightsaber itemtype entry.

  10. Surfing... the husband of our oldest studies bridge engineering. His master thesis is about surfing.... More and more young people attach bungee ropes to a bridge and surf. But there are risks: under water vortices or rocks, no rescue road along the river,.. So he works on designs how new bridges or bridges which have to be repaired can be made more safe for surfing, while still doesn't affect waterflow, bridge stability and nature too much. Luckily our village bridge is a test object. Not too big, but very safe for kids learning surfing.

  12. lessons -> Deutsches Rettungsschwimmabzeichen in Bronze German rescue swimmer badge in bronce. Twins made it this summer. Rest of the family has it in gold (you have to be at least 16 for this). Hardest parts for kids is rescue of a person which has clothes on, fighting for air and they have to jump into the water wearing clothes too. So not these sexy baywatch stuff, no swimming aid, no well known beach,... We are surrounded by forests which contain fish ponds, artificial lakes from basalt mining ... Some have hasty vortices or underwater plants. So swim training is started while

  15. Hi. I'm Stu. I first played Sacred 2 back on the 360, when it was fresh and new, and players could still be impressed by bards randomly singing in the town square. I remember playing it a lot, but never getting very far. I had come off my WoW stint, so altitus was rampant and I was just tired of fighting everything to get a McGuffin then fighting everything to get back. That and the suicidal NPCs you had to escort. Still it was fun to hop in, kill things, and take their stuff. Fast forward an uncomfortable number of years, and I've had an inkling to play it again for months, just no

  16. Yesterday: My wife was visiting an old lady who suffers from osteoporosis at her home. While giving an injection against the pain my wife notices some older kindergarten kids picking apples from a branch which grew over the fence and so was reachable from the road. The tree was owned by the lady who had a small garden to add some extra food because she had a very small retirement payment. So my wife opened the window and said: "You are not allowed to pick apples from a tree you don't own. You are only allowed to pick fallen apples from the road (*)!" "Tante (**) you are stu

  17. Play -> PS4 We were reading the latin version of Asterix in latin class. Our history teacher was forcing us to read Asterix to find caricatures of historical or modern politicians, in the 1 year English I was forced to read the english Asterix. Strangely in 6years French we never read Asterix- and it is French in the original. When E-sport will replace real sport: future kids will play Asterix in sport classes

My cousine was 4th in european championships and has a horse farm and is a trainer now. Our oldest was state champion in all-girl youth team competition. Our second second in team and first in single competition in her age. And then an idiot car driver hit her bicycle. Our third was more in music and the twins had no chance to train cause of covid.

  26. pollack (fish?) -> HackMack HackMack is a traditional firefighter food, mainly at paid city firefighters who are stationed in a department. Matjes(soused herring) and onions are put in a grinder apples, pickled cucumbers, boiled eggs fine cut all mixed minutes before serving add steak tartar and a shot rum to the mix If it is getting grey it is riped. If the fire alarm rings before eating - place the HackMack in a pot and cover it with high percent alchohol booze so you can eat it when the firefighting is done. We have a more local variant using stuff

  27. Blast from the past regarding Sacred's predecessor, Armalion. Some dedicated users have resurrected the classic Armalion site from way back before Ascaron acquired the assets: One notable thing is that there were originally male and female genders for each of the character classes. This is part of a larger "Sacred Tribute Project" that some fans are putting together. Here is the quote I saw from their posting on GOG:

  29. color guard -> supersonic There was a short timespan in history when Fahnenschwinger (flag swingers) were trained to wave flags on the tops of a city wall in a way that a supersonic noise was created much like with bullwhips. The idea was that a town under siege had only limited ammunition. So with the 'bang bang' from the flags a illusion of a leader commanding a troop of arkebuse shooters was created. The attackers were hiding for cover and a charge was stopped. Just when they started to ignore the flags and charged anyway a real salvo was fired. With better and better guns

On the right a warning that thousands or millions of medical papers were ruined by using Excel. Excel reads genoms and changes their names unasked if they look like a date. MARCH1 — short for “Membrane Associated Ring-CH-Type Finger 1” — Excel converts that into a date: 1-Mar. Luckily our second learned 'R' with 14.

  43. Using Deep AI to Retexture Sacred 2 Skip to the bottom if you don't care about the how or why and just want to see cool pictures. Introduction: Traditionally, modders who wanted to improve texture quality in games had to resort to: 1) upscaling the old textures using basic resizing functions in image editors, or else 2) completely retexturing from scratch using new source images. The former option is easy. The modder would resize the texture in Paint or Photoshop, maybe apply a sharpening filter, and then present their grainy product, generally to a chorus of boos about how t
