Help with parts of UI
So I used to play Sacred 2 with my bro on 360. In fact, thanks to this amazing game, it's how I learned of Blind Guardian. Before them, I'd only dabbled in power metal, and never full blown fantasy metal bands...3.5 years later, my love and collection of power metal has grown, and my love for Sacred 2 has remained. Finally, I can play it on PC! With all the content and none of the nasty DRM! But wait what's this...? A UI not like that of console? Oh happy days I knew the console version came second...but this UI warms my heart!

Except...Me and my bro are both having a bit of trouble. We have theories and ideas, but no concrete info. What are the circles/orbs in the bottom left for? Buffs? Not skills cause my drag mage can't put anything there. Are the 4 circles on the right all we get to use/manage skills?

Basically just...wondering if any of you lovely sacred 2 PC vets can help someone with the transition to the master race verison (Huehuehue) by giving me a rundown/tutorial/summary of how to best use this UI. Keep in mind I'm no newbie to UIs weird and simple and complex, been gaming all my life, and I DID play sacred 2 on 360 quite a bit but...there are parts of the PC UI I can't seem to figure or seem....clunky to me at first use/glance. Any info/suggestions/help to understand this UI so I can better enjoy the game would be much appreciated. Could be told in this thread, or in game/on skype, or through video or pictures! I care not...Just want some help with all the UI differences....

Mainly what the orbs at the bottom left are used for, how else I can arrange/use/hotkey my skills beyond the 4 measly slots to the right (I recall 360 version letting me use a trigger or bumper in combination with x/y/b/a to give us a total of 8 hotkeys or so...unless I'm misremembering x.x), and what skill(s) are/are not allowed to be used on right mouse :)

orbs in the bottom left = relics f5-f8 is to select between them ( or use cursor )

orbs in bottom right = buffs

circles in middle left = weapon slots ( f1 - f5 )

circles in middle right = combat art slots ( 1 - 5 )

mini map = top right and to use hold tab, or change setting near mini map to have persistent etc)

quick save default key is f7

Inventory menu = F

Combat art menu = E

Skills menu = C

L = Journal (Achievements is the trophy icon in the journal )

G = God power

Scroll wheel up/down = zoom in/out

left click = standard attack

Right click = Combat art

0 = is whistle for mount

Buffs = 6 7 8

Q = auto pick up around character

To move either use WASD or hold left click, i tend to use both depending on what i am doing.

Space = healing potion

other potions = R T Y U I O

Anything else just look in Options -> Controls, and feel free to change things around.

I saw it on my bros, was wondering cause he had a screenshot to compare with, and while he didn't go over EVERYTHING you did, the way he explained it I didnt mind either O.o I guess maybe he thought your explanation was better...? Dunno....

EDIT - Haha! I was right! Thanks Fade, I liked the screenshot :) Also my bro was wondering...were you using custom textures or elite textures for something cause he said some texture in your pic seemed 'off'

EDIT - Hey no big deal man, we all have our problems :) I appreciate that you helped and I'm glad for the screenshot.

He was referring to your images for your relics/relic bar. He said parts of it didn't 'look right to him' and gave an explanation that he thought they should look more 'stone-like' or something and also something about how he didn't remember/know any of the abilities looked like they were 'coming off of a paper'. I think he's just not really remembering/ever seen sereaphim artifact icons, at least not on PC...

i dont think he remembers much lol. pc is pretty different compared to consoles. how much different other than the UI not really sure, but i do now it is much better here on pc than it was on ps3 when i played 2 or so years ago

I am so confused about who remembers what and who said what lol, i'm just going to leave this here-----> What came first, the chicken or the egg?

Fade/Hein - He said it may just be him misremembering or something, but he just felt/thought that the relic icons he saw in the first screenshot seemed off/strange...And he played the 360 version, not PS3. It'd also been awhile, and I don't think he ever really played a Seraphim to a high level (He loves the techno Anubis lol) so it could be misremembering...or hell, maybe the icons ARE a bit different for some things in PC compared to 360, even/especially with I&B installed on PC version....

Heirneric did a great job explaining whats going on, you might also want to read the manual, other than some pretty blurry pictures it does a decent job explaining something..
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Sacred 2 Gold\locale\en_UK
Is where mine was located.
