I thought i would share my edited files i am playing with and give an example of what i have done that make the game a bit better ( in my opinion! ), don't worry there isn't any cheats in these edits.
Some of these use to be on Darkmatters but since it is down for who knows how long...they are included here and i updated them myself, Good thing i had them backed up!Before we start be sure to back up your files that i have listed here just to be safe!
Also these edits are using the newest CM patch v0140. and the groups servers do NOT run on these edits so you don't have to worry about that...but if you DO use these edits and would like servers with these edits let me know!
I should mention that these edits will not allow you to play online with others or join other servers that do not have the same files as you due to these changes i have made, to fix this you have these options,
- Remove your edited files and replace with the default ones. ( could lose items with the Tiny icon edit restored to default depending on amount of items compared to normal size etc...unless you back up your chest/save file or put the items in a safe spot in the chest JUST FYI, it happen to me once lol ) but it isn't that bad really so don't freak yourself out and just pay attention..works perfectly fine!
- Other people have the same edits as you
- Play single player ( if you don't play online you have nothing to worry about anyways ).
Overall it's rather simple to do and back up, just don't be careless lol.
But playing with others who also have these edits makes it SO much fun trust me lol.I will start with my Tiny icons edit
What this does is make every single item in the game use a single slot in the inventory/storage, instead of say...a chest piece that takes 6 slots? everything now is the size of a potion! So you can see how this help!
Here is a screenshot of the Tiny icons edithttp://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=120706601
First off go the Shared folder which should look something like this
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Sacred 2 Gold\scripts\shared
Unless yours is not in the C drive it should be named something very close.
Assuming you already made a back up of your default file, just download and replace with mine here
The next edited files will now be located inside the Server folder which can be located here
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Sacred 2 Gold\scripts\serverBoss Arena quest edit
At the Start island in Free play mode there is a Colosseum that you can visit, what this edit does is add a new NPC with a quest you simple click the guy to accept the quest, Walk inside the Colosseum and a mini-boss will spawn, they will spawn 1 at a time in waves till it is over, return to the NPC and accept your reward.
These mini bosses that spawn are pretty much the ones you will find through out the game to fight and kill not story based ones so no need to worry about that!

You can download from hereIncreased spawns
Short and simple...increases the amount of enemies that spawn through out the world.
Example of something i found in the desert, great xp from these guys hehe just FYI this is in Niob difficulty, you won't see tons and tons in each difficulty, as each one also increases their own spawns, i have tested with a level 1 in silver and got it up quite a bit and it works just fine trust me: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=120513654
Download hereBalance edits
This file contains many edits i will list what i have done here,
Slightly increased the movement and attack speed cap of 150 to a max of 200, could go higher but i feel this is good enough ) it always annoyed me that the cap was too easy to reach and speed lore was kinda pointless for the most part, now it has a use. :)
Vendors have the following edits,
Slightly higher chance of selling Rares ( also effected by Bargaining )
Faster refresh of items.....I found this useful...lowering this value to the number i have displayed recycles the items in a vendor's inventory...you have to kinda leave the area and come back, like in the main city, just running around in a circle to the 3 vendors in each part of the city is enough to always get different stuff
Standard, Champions, and bosses have a slightly higher chance of dropping more items, Not a ton..just very slightly ( also effect by Enhanced Perception ).
Items dropped on the ground will stay a little bit longer, and same goes for the amount of time before they are destroyed..not too long, just slightly increased.
I did restore enemy armor/damage/hitpoints back to default for you all though...i had mine increased to mimic multiple players.
In my opinion The balance edits and increased spawns go well together after playing for a long time with these edits.
