Sacred 2 - New Questions - Is there a way to change the camera angle

Recommended Posts

Hello,

1. Is there a way to change the camera angle, it seems the main character is too far at the top of the screen and I can never really see what is coming ahead, I have change the camera settings in the options but nothing really works well, I did get it to work somewhat as a third person view, but your view is too far back from the character.

2. I have read some things about a Hi Res texture package, should I try and install? I have the USA Steam Gold ver.

3. Should I install the Community patch now? or just wait until I play through at least once with the base game? If so is there anything I need to download and install?

4. What do Magic Pearls do? I have a few of them now.

5. Should I play Sacred 1 first? or the story doesn't really matter? I remember playing Sacred 1 a few times and I never could escort the guy from the castle in the sand area to the area north without him dying.

    5a. I was reading that escort quest in Sacred 2 are an issue as well as the A.I. isn't the best... are there ways of dealing with this better?

6. the combo arts on the left side, I have one there and I am advised the hotkey is #1 but when I hit #1; nothing happens; the skill I have is Pelting Strikes

7. Is there a Discord channel for Sacred 2?

Question 1:

A bit longer and for my early german version I hadn't to delete options.txt. If there was a optionscustom.txt it was overwriting the options.txt settings in game. But I heard also from problems with this.

So read the thread carefully and do backsups backups backups from everything you change or delete.

Welcome to DarkMatters Hordolur.

I will answer the questions that I can, and hopefully someone else will answer the rest

3. I installed the community patch right away, and I have only found an improvement... So my suggestion is go for it, what are you waiting for? just make backups of everything before the time...

4. Magic pearls can be added to a weapon by a blacksmith. and will convert a percentage of damage to magic damage, Depending on the level of the magic pearl. Here is the link for the wiki page.

5. I did not play Sacred 1, and I love Sacred 2. have finished the game a few times, and always keep playing it. I do not feel like I have missed anything or need to play Sacred 1 (I do have it, but have not really been bothered to put the effort in.)

6. The combat arts needs to be activated. So by pressing #1 you are just selecting the combat art, you then still need to activate it. Because you can line up different combat arts, you have to choose which one to use, and then activate it, Default I believe is right click on your mouse. eventually you will have 5 combat arts on the "quick pick" option. I put the most used one as #1 and then second most used as #2, etc...

 

Good Luck and have fun playing Sacred 2

5a. With the advent of the ever-evolving Community Patch to the present day, the escort quests are easier because the NPC that you are protecting has better and more durable health and they don't wander away so far as they had before in the vanilla Sacred 2.

7. To my knowledge, there is not, but we have the most extensive wiki of any game I have ever encountered.

Now, go thee and slay bountiful hordes of Kobolds!

Thanks again for all the help, this community is a very good one.

backed up my saved games, as I found steam doesn't do this on the cloud like they do with some games.

I installed the graphics pack and community patch, so far nothing is noticeable changed then the logo screen and buttons.

Time to put the gears in and grind away and find out more of what this great world has to offer.

I am sure that I speak for all of us here when I tell you that we are happy to help. One more thing regarding the camera angle, you may enjoy setting it to be able to zoom way out for a bird's-eye view and then in for certain battles and underground encounters. For Boss battles you may want to move the middle sliders toward the middle beforehand to get a perspective that doesn't move you automatically away from your comfort zone.
