VERY COOL.. first of all I too was one of those people who could not play without a cd with the first version of plus. Apparently it was my lite on dvd writer or something it was not determined. I thought I would try the lazy man approach. Though I wouldn't suggest it I just wanted to see what would happen. I did have the full english latest version of plus installed and simply backed up my save files as well as the files listed in previous post. 2. Install your version of sacred up till the newest version. 3. Make a copy from these files (as you will need them later): - global.res (its in the "script" folder) *** NEW ADDITION *** **- Copy the US Folder from your script directory or whatever language you use** - settings.cfg (in main directory) 4. Now deinstall sacred (and make a reboot) *** NEW ADDITION *** **- I DID NOT need to uninstall or reboot ** 5. install your sacred version and update in your original language to "Plus-Version" 1.8.10 (NOT to the latest version 1.8.26 !!) *** NEW ADDITION *** ** I DID NOT need to uninstall go and back to previous version works on latest version** 6. Now download the reg files (mentioned from mf_y2k) http://knyaz.info/sitefiles/instALL.zip 7. Copy the russian sacred.exe and install_rus.reg to your sacred directory (overwriting existing files). 8. double click the install_rus.reg file (as acds2 mentiones this doesnt work for WIN98 as it uses different reg-editor) 9. Now sacred thinks that you have the russian version installed. 10. Now download the latest russian update (1.8.26) from ascaron.com (klick on "english" on the welcome page). It weights 130 MB. 11. Install the update (it should work just fine). *** NEW ADDITION *** **- Though my update gave me some errors and said it failed I just restarted again** 12. Now copy over your global.res to "scipt/ru" folder (and the language is back to your original) ! 13. Remove all entries, starting with FONT in the settings.cfg (except "fontaa", "fontfilters", "fontpages"). 14. Your old settings.cfg is to solve the problem with the movies (see point 17.) for comparison. *** NEW ADDITION *** ** Simply copying your Language folder you backed up to your Scripts folder and copying your settings.cfg you backed up over the new version resolves the movies issue** 15. Now download the Mini Image from russian CD2: http://vega-service.ru/34/Sacred_rus.rar 16. Mount it with daemon 3.47 or newest alc120%. As i told you, the protection is now Starforce 3 (so you maybe have to disable your cd-drives) 17. The last thing is, when you start your game now, make sure, that you tick: "Disable movies" in the starting window (or the config menu). Because there seems to be a problem between russian and YOUR version. The game will crush, if you dont tick it ! *** NEW ADDITION *** ** If you copied your language script and settings.cfg correctly should not have to disable movies** The game runs fine now !! use this key (from mf_y2k): HPTF3-7DRT8-AXG7H-3YNY3-93LHY MANY MANY Thanks goes out to Seven077, mf_y2k, Aika-son and everyone else who contributed, I apologize if I missed anyone else. I will have all the necessary files hosted on Emule in case Ascaron reads this and does a quick fix on the Russian update.
