It seems that with patch 2.34 they fixed the vendor issue that was created in patch 2.31.

NOW we have to figure out how to further play with it... Let me explain.

Before patch 2.31 we could play with the balance text and the vendors sold virtually anything we wanted. Unique, orange and green(set) items galore...weapons,armor, jewelry.

Patch 2.31 broke that. It was mentioned by a developer that green(set) items were never supposed to be offered in vendors and it was a bug that vendors sold them. When they fixed that bug, they broke vendors. No matter how high we played with a few values of the balance text, vendors still only offered white and blue items...virtually worthless.

Patch 2.34 has fixed that, in a sense. I have those values set very high and now all vendors sell only yellow items. No orange items though.

I feel like this is something we can find how to manipulate with the balance text.

I noticed 2 new lines in the balance text with patch 2.34:

SkillMagicFindFactor = 200,
NumSectors = 3709

I wonder if they are somehow linked to:

TraderOfferUpperRareBase.....which controls what a vendor carries.

Has anyone found anything? Any ideas?

All yellows, far better than whites and blues, but I would like to see some oranges outside of drops as well.

Hi LOTF..
I am having trouble installing the upgrade 2.34
The upgrade runs a check and aborts, advising me to re-install S2 as a file has been changed.
I copy the original balance.txt (as this is the only file I have modified) back from the bak-up folder I put it in and still I get the "error" message.
Any help please.?

Norm

I was getting the same message OVER AND OVER AND OVER...

I had uninstalled and re-installed 5 times.

After uninstalling a 6th time I remembered that Sacred 2 leaves certain files on the PC...files that you may have modified.

I added a blank sound file to the speech folder to get rid of my toon saying "This is a VERY special item" EVERY time my toon picked up an orange/green item...which, because of balance text edits, was EVERY item i picked up.

It left that file in the program folder it created. Every time I reinstalled, it just added that file back to where it was originally.

Only after deleting the program file completely after uninstalling and then reinstalling did everything work ok.

Thnx LotF

I have done the re-install thingy again also..

This time I went really slow and careful..
1.run the Asceron S2 Clean-up tool;
2.use windows control panel add & remove programs to uninstall S2 & Elite GFX;
3.exit the de-activate dialog (no changes made here);
4.delete left folders & files;
5.install S2.02; new 2.12; 2.31; 2.34; install elite GFX;
6.reset user option to my defaults;
7.rewrite balance.txt (coz I killed it in frustration)
Does anyone have a NO-God mode balance.txt I could make use of.??

FYI Australia - EN_UK CE

Seems ALL goodness has returned to the land,

Anyone having any luck with the merchants yet? I want to update, but am holding of until I can get browns and oranges in the merchants again. And also does anyone know if the game is sensitive to screen resolution settings? I seem to get hangs and crashes with some settings.

I've only been able to get Yellow items from merchants as of Patch 2.34. I've read that 2.34 broke merchants, to the point that even with high amounts of bargaining skill, nothing too great can be purchased. :-(
