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

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.

Nope Rowen no blue arrow on the map screen. Guess I'll just count these two quests as uncompleteable - rats I hate to be a failure lol

Oh Syd, wave

Even with the download patch I still had quest I couldn't complete because of no locations shown..
I'm not sure but I think the "plus" was to take care of those broken quests, but they drove me a little insane too. mad

Syd, I don't know if these will help, but take a look at some of the maps here:

I downloaded Plus today and installed it - guess what? It doesn't fix it laugh Oh well - I will have to live with two unfinished quests.

Hi Schwab - thanks for the link - I printed the maps just in case laugh

Well now isn't that interesting. One of the major complaints about the game, and still not fixed. mad

I remember I had at least 2 or more quests I couldn't complete because there was no where to go, or if you did, nothing was there..sigh.

this is not very encouraging...
i just started on this game, i haven't had many problems with it yet, except for the disk verification error. i dread quitting the game, too, for fear it won't start up again.

i was just wondering, can i get my followers to ride horses too? it's sad the way wilbur runs behind while my elf sits all so high and mighty on her "heavy nag" (this horse thing is really cool)

Hi lucca - nope I'm afraid only your character can ride the horsie - I didn't even bother buying one because you can't fight from it and by the time I managed to get off - I got killed rolleyes

My BM is now at level 23 (I think) - I'm in Chapter III - me thinks I played waaaaaaay too much this weekend laugh

I invested some levels into the horse later in the game and always made sure to buy the most enchanted saddle I could get. With a good horse you can out run many of the enemies that pop up just to be a pain in the saddle area. wink If I saw a group of enemies ahead that I knew I wouldn't be able to outrun I would jump off the horse just as they spotted me. They never attacked the horse if you are on the ground. You will need a good horse to outrun that dragon in the southern desert.

Syd, it was that big sandy place near the bottom of the map. I forget the name of the region. There are several dragons in the game but the one in the desert was the hardest one for me because I wasn't very strong when I ran into him. He had to breathe on me only once and I was dead. The only strategy that worked for me was to ride my horse out of range of his breathe but lure him to follow me to the nearest town just north of where he was. Once in town he didn't fit through the gates so I could hide behind a wall and fire shots at him - many, many , many shots until he finally died.
