  1. Hello modding community, Primarily to help in fixing bugs, I would like to edit the DLL files. From several mods I can see that this is already being done several times. However, while browsing the forum, I can't find a single discussion / explanation on how you guys do this. Because I doubt that you just look at the DLLs with a HEX editor and play around as per try & error. So how have you decompiled the DLL files? I assume for legal reasons the knowledge about this has only been shared via PM. Consequently I understand of course if my post will be deleted right away. @dimitrius154 @Flix and @Lindor , based on your mods and posts, you may be able to help me in this. Thank you in advance. And thank you for your awesome patches and mods!
  2. This video will show you how to use Cheat Engine and my Sacred cheat table to modify the Steam version of Sacred Gold. After watching the video, you'll be able to: Change your character's skills at any time in-game, including to those normally unavailable to your character class. Equip any item regardless of its requirements, including items normally unavailable to your character class. Learn, level and use combat arts of other characters. Summon any creature/character in the game the same way the Wood Elf summons her unicorn. Play as normally unplayable creatures/characters (you can play as a dragon, Sakkara demon, Baron DeMordrey, rabbit, etc.). What you'll need for this: The English Steam version of Sacred Gold (unfortunately, the cheat table will likely not work with any other version of the game). Cheat Engine. My Sacred cheat table. My Sacred modding spreadsheet. If you want to convert the cheat table to another version of the game but don't have any experience working with Cheat Engine, I'd recommend to start by watching these tutorials by Stephen Chapman. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out, I'll try to help. I'll probably do a couple more Cheat Engine tutorials later down the line (on how to use NPC combat arts and how to give armor to your companion) so stay tuned for those.
  3. How to add extra equipment slots to a character's inventory page. Note, that: a) This doesn't create new slots but adds existing slots from other classes to a class which doesn't have them. Namely 2 more ring slots, an extra amulet slot, the shrunken head from the Dryad, and the battery from the temple guardian. b) There's no model for the battery. I had thought that it appeared on the Temple guardian, but after checking an actual temple guardian, it doesn't get displayed. c) You don't get the ability to shoot with it. Probably a specific skill that only the temple guardian gets that requires a battery to be equipped. d) I didn't implement the shrunken head as well, but unless that does something different, I don't see how that wouldn't work. e) Combat art bonuses that spawn on the battery will probably be only for the temple guardian. I didn't look at the specific bonuses that the bonus lists choose from. f) When you select an equipped weapon, it's damages appears to change based on the damage of the battery, but I don't think it actually applies(My limited testing didn't show any difference in damage actually dealt). If you select an empty weapon slot your damage doesn't appear to change. But you do get the additional bonuses. Well they appear on the stats tool tip anyway. g) This isn't an actual mod, but more an example of research showing that equipment slots can be added. That's how it started out anyway. Now onto the method. First open scripts/shared/creatureinfo.txt. The first entry is the Seraphim. Change line 20, validEquipSlots = "", to include the 2 additional rings, 1 additional amulet, the battery, and shrunken head, as shown in the picture. Save and close the file. Second, open scripts/server/blueprint.txt. Search for: hero_battery_normal It'll probably be around line 3249. Change the wearergroups so that it is WEARGROUP_DEFAULT, just like in the picture. Save and close the file. Notice the 2 itemtypes: 8635, 8636. Third open scripts/server/itemtype.txt Search for 8635. About line 212196. You should see: mgr.typeCreate(8635, newItemType); On line 212187, change user = so that is WEARGROUP_DEFAULT. Do the same for the next itemtype which will be 8636. Refer to the picture. Save and close the file. These changes allow the seraphim to equip the batteries. Now, we'll cover adding the equipment slots to the user interface(UI). In your Sacred 2/pak folder, create 2 new folders, one named Windows and another named orig_skin-xml, and extract the contents of skin-xml.zip into it. From orig_skin-xml/Windows copy Inventory.xml, and Inventory_Seraphim.xml, then paste them into your Sacred 2/pak/Windows folder. I do plan on providing an overview for the xml files at a later time. Open Inventory.xml. Search for: handicap. if you're using CM 1.60 it should be around line 156. On the next line, change the value for x to 328. Save and close the file. Open Inventory_Seraphim.xml. Make the necessary changes as can be seen in the picture. Pretty vague, yes, but there are a large number of changes. Save and close the file. Run the game and start a new seraphim. You could use an existing seraphim, in which case I recommend backing it up just in case. Any batteries, well as long as they're of the first 2 types, will go into the equipment slot, the same with the extra rings and amulet.
  4. Here's a video tutorial that will show you how to change your starting companion to any character in the game, as well as how to get a starting companion for characters that do not normally have one (Seraphim, Dwarf, Daemon). Let me know if you have any questions and if you want to see more Sacred Underworld modding tutorials here Here's the Sacred modding spreadsheet that's used in the video.
  5. Mod is complete and released! Community Items Mod v1.2 Download Thread. After releasing my Dragon Mage Sets Mod, I started thinkng about what direction I would take the mod next. At first this thread was only about modding in new uniques and legendary items (weapons or armor). However, now after receiving so many great suggestions, ideas, and contributions from talented modders, the mod has now become the "Community Items Mod". Suggestions and new ideas are always welcome. Because this thread has become very long and the number of items very large, this post will serve as an overview and a Table of Contents for all the new content added in the CM Items Mod. The links below will take you the spots in this thread and other threads where I posted pics and described in detail the stats and lore of the items.

  6. Hello, as some of you are probably aware since quite some time nvidia refuses to let us use Fog Table Emulation anymore and since Rivatuner supports only up to 9xxx models we had to believe in the developers of D3D apps (games) to allow us disabling fog via configs/options. Here's a solution to this problem for Sacred 2 if using high quality graphic settings (If your system is bound to use any lower this might not be in your interest anyway): In ...\Sacred 2 (Gold/Fallen Angel....)\pak\graphics01.zip\hq\fx\ is a fog.dds (volume map, no mipmaps), either edit it for a pure transparent texture or simply reduce the intensity if you want a moderate fog instead of none at all. Same again for ...\Sacred 2 Gold\pak\graphics01.zip\hq\env\lighting\ fogDensity01.dds ... fogDensity26.dds and there you go, ingame you'll have either no fog until renderdistance or moderate depending on how you edited the files. Doing so is easy enough with either Photoshop or GIMP using a dds plugin, all your choice! Thanks goes to my buddy "Neovita" that lead me to the idea for this, for the story about it go to post #6 Best wishes, Meensai P.S. Call me an asshat but no, I won't answer "How to.." or anything of this sort, it's easy enough
  7. So yeah, ever noticed that its pointless to skill shadow veil past level 50/25(with skill modification)? Once you have 100% chance to not be detected while casting spells there is no reason to invest any more runes into shadow veil. So I was thinking the skill should have an innate bonus Something along the lines of +crit chance while stealthed, +melee damage, -opponent's chance to dodge/evade. Something that supports stealthy melee play. So im open for good suggestions. they will be incorporated into the new Update of my challenge Mod. Since the old thread is gone im not sure which changes were included in my last version. I remember I made ALL items 1x1 in the inventory and all two handed weapons were one handed except bows and other two handed range weapons
  8. I have a specific thing in mind and need some basic guidelines. Does anyone have 3D modeling experience? cheers One spatula to flip them all...
