Sacred Gold Low FPS and Sound Problems FIXED!
I found solution to low fps and sound problems in game. All you have to do is to set your Desktop resolution to 1024x768 and uncheck Fullscreen mode in Config.exe in game folder.

I noticed with the non-steam version that it became really slow on newer PC's, i read somewhere that you can turn off vsync in some config file, but didn't even think of this solution (which is way better), thanks!

What i noticed with alot of old games that support windowed mode but don't support high resolutions: somehow the windows startbutton is taking up loads of resources when it's even with 1 pixel on screen, covering the whole start button solves this issue...
This is why changing your desktop to the game's resolution fixes this problem.

I'm thinking og buying this. I actually own the original but it never worked as i had those sound problems and FPS slowdown as many people experienced on their new computers.
Are people still having this problem?
Is the only fix really to reduce desktop rez and full screen as outlined here?
OR has it been fixed properly whereby you can leave your desktop alone.

I had low framerate/stuttering problems with other older games running in windowed mode, but fullscreen or windowed fullscreen didn't have this problem, so i just tried moving the window to various places on screen and found out it was the startbutton that was causing all the trouble (this was in Win7 64bit)

Ofcourse this won't work for everything, but it's worth a try

Hi. i found a much better soulution for win.Vista to solve this problem:just right click on Sacred.exe
then click on properties.then compatibility ..then select the compatibility mode Windows xp(service pack 2) ((or whatever)) if this wont work for you then try comp.mode win95/98....
thanks for reading and much fun in sacred!!!
