  1. Welcome, SnerkDevil, may your reach forever match your desires. You should find many who have just about any knowledge about Sacred and Sacred 2 that you may deem necessary.
  2. I've been working with multiple monitors and will typically have different displays on each. If you could just get both games to 'time share' you could get it to work.
  3. My fist copy of Sacred came from the UK because it wasn't sold in the US at first. I still play intermittently but more because I have squired multiple copies of the game, including a couple I 'won' while beta testing for the last official upgrade. To this day I still prefer the Dragon Mage to other characters. My grave can still be found in the game. The game I consistently go back to is Master of Orion II from my DOS days. It really helps that there is a new mod for the game, v1.50.18.3. For any wishing to try it: MOO2MOD
  4. It looks interesting but I'm having enough trouble using my right hand. I think it would be almost impossible to manage a new combat system. I've been trying to play Fallout 4 but every time I get drawn into combat, I have to use the console command 'killall' just to stay alive. I've tried again and again to control my mouse in a combat situation but, even with almost unlimited ammo, my aim 'wanders all over the place.
  5. I allowed my iMac performed an update last night and I can now respond using Firefox. I will eventually get around to checking out Safari as well but there is no rush. Beware, I'm back!
  6. When I try to enter any response, be it a post reply, a new post, or even an edited post, the main text field is simply a thin line with no place to enter any text. Fortunately, I have more than one computer, so I am posting on my Windows 10 PC. I first discovered the problem with the 'Birthdays' topic. I couldn't enter my birthday. After I gave up, I then tried to send someone a PM with the same problem. I finally tried my PC and at least have a means of typing in a message. I will wait to see if this posts before trying to remember what other information I was going to try to post.
  7. This would be cool but don't use my phone often enough to be really useful. https://www.amazon.com/Star-Generation-Bluetooth-Communicator-Badge/dp/B0777S47VQ/
  8. When I first got my cell phones, I couldn't even get service when inside our house. I got weak, one bar service, if I waved the phone around outside our back door. After I complained to the service provider, they came up with a cell repeater that hooked into our Internet service. Now we always have full service ... unless the power fails ...
  9. Fascinating. I appear to be the worst lurker here ... or perhaps I'm just too lazy to post.
  10. Surprise, surprise, the books are better than the movie and they differ in quite a few instances so they are well worth the time and effort to read them. The biggest difference is that 'John Smith', Number Four, is the one who is flame resistant, not Number Six. Now that they have teamed up, their 'number immunity' is no longer valid ... I didn't want to wait for our library to get them all, so I purchased them all at once. I will probably re-read them, so it was worth it.
  11. We watched 'I am Number Four' somewhere and I promptly got the video. Then I learned it was based on actual books and I have gone through eight of them so far. Only two more to go for the main series.
  12. Welcome, Curios. I hope you find everything you need in here. Could it be that your cookies have been mangled somehow? I remember having a similar problem a couple of decades ago. I deleted all my cookies and my login started working. The only problem was then having to remember all my multitudinous passwords. Fortunately I remembered most and got the rest ... in other ways. I cannot guarantee it will work but it is an option.
  13. Isn't the main advantage of a forum the ability to maintain a history of what is posted? That history is best kept where everyone involved can peruse it. Yes, every once in a while someone will rudely post into what someone had felt was a 'private' conservation but that is often a plus as it gains new perspective and possible solutions to problems. If there is a real need for private conversation, why not have restricted forums that are only visible to specific groups? I have used hidden forums as part of a 'spam trap' for many years. It keeps spam and porn out of the rest of the forum un
  14. I just checked and I still have a copy of FF VIII that works on a PC as well as the PS2. I might try it again ... since I still have both systems.
