As you may remember I could never get this game to work due to the copy protection - well today I was going to get back into Knights of the Old Republic but I have misplaced Disk 1 so I can't until I track it down or buy another game cry Decided to load in Sacred just for the heck of it - low and behold and will wonders never cease but it's playing and I have no clue how or why it is now working lol What I do need to know is for those that have played it - is it playable without any patches? I am deathly afraid to install a patch for fear of causing the game to go into the "disk verification error" mode again (truthfully, I'm also afraid to exit out of the game for the same reason - I don't suppose this can be played in one sitting can it?) rotfl

You can play without any patches, Syd, though some of the quests are messed up in the original unpatched game, the main storyline quest will still be playable all the way to the end.

No, it's not a Nancy Drew game, it will take more than one sitting, unless you are sitting for 40 hours at a time..

You will love this game , syd! wave

I patched my game before I started and had no problems. There is another download for Sacred Plus which I didn't install but it is supposed to expand the game even further. I'll do that next time I play the game <img border="0" alt="[santa]" title="" src="graemlins/santa.gif" /> .

Well my battle mage - Betsy May (I strike fear into all who cross my path either that or they laugh themselves to death first) laugh has just made level 5. I have a couple of tag alongs with me and have so far completed four quests. I'm looking for the blacksmith right now but have no clue where the old stone circle is - I need to find a map that gives me the locations of places. BM is telling me to get a move on (she sure has a deep voice for a girl wink ) so I guess I'd best be getting back to finding that wayward blacksmith.

Edit - found the blacksmith now just hope I didn't sell the sword he wants me to get from some goblins lol

Are you even sure that's a girl you named??? You may have chosen a guy and given him a girl's name by mistake. laugh laugh

Hi mackie - yep he's technically a guy (why they don't think women can be battle mages is beyond me) lol

i played it unpatched - UK version. had no major problems. heard some had big problems with patch, decided not to patch it unless i had to. I never did patch it. only some of the random quests were a bit problematic. not a big deal. could still do all the regular side quests. had no crashes. game was very stable.

I played with the patch, but not sure if it would have made a huge difference Syd. The fact that you're not able to run it, I think I too would leave well enough alone.

Have fun. I think I'm going to order the "new version" instead of downloading..me and downloads are not getting along real well these days.

Have fun bravo

I played without the patch on the UK version, and didn't have any problems. I hear that the new version that you can download for free really makes the game better though. Like Ingie, instead of downloading, I sold my original and bought Sacred Plus instead to play it again someday. Hope you have a great time with it! Oh, and that circle of fire spell really knocks off the baddies.

I used that circle of fire spell a time or two laugh Killed that big huge mean Ogre with the turning to stone and smacking it to pieces spell. That one reminded me of the freeze spell in DD.

My spell using abilities seem to be sporadic - sometimes I can get them to work and sometimes not - not sure why (and yes I let them recharge). I'm also trying to figure out how those combo spells go together and which ones to put with which. Haven't done anything with them yet.

I just hope I can get back into the game tonight -

And what's the new version?

The spells in the new version are enhanced and supposedly work better for one thing. I can't remember what all they did, but it's the same game but supposedly fixed in all the areas that people complained about, like the random quests, etc. I sure do like the name you picked, Syd - I know I'd be leery of a guy called Betsy May!

Yup me and Betsy May are cleaning up around here laugh The game let me back in so with any luck as long as I don't accidentially eject the disk I may be able to finish it.

I killed the minatour that was guarding the treasure but man I need potions. I seem to have bought them all and none of the traders have any more - me thinks I'm in a heap of trouble help

BM just made level 9 and we're heading off to find Wilbur (well, I'm heading off to work in a few minutes - BM will be heading off to find Wilbur after I get home).

Does anyone know if there are maps to Sacred? I mean the more detailed ones that tell you where a location is - I'm trying to find the old tombstones in the caves (I got these quests in Faeries Crossing).

Do you get a blue arrow on your map screen? You can scroll the map to see the final destination of the arrow.
