Sacred 2: Fallen Angel Discussion
EDIT: Well, it appears the problem was quite easy to solve. It seems that Vista and 7 handle file streams in somewhat different manner than XP. Apparently the data isn't written to disk the instant the stream calls the Write method. So if the file is recompressed before the stream actually writes the data inside it, the changes are not saved, obviously.
To all programmers out there: always flush the stream after you write data to it.
[Streams are like toilets, actually: used it - flush it. ]

thank you for the great job. Now the editor is working well even with Vista.
But one achievement is missing for Ice & Blood:
The Dragonmage is reaching Level 15
i have one off topic question though.. does anyone know, how to change the amount of experience points i get for killing enemies?
I will add the dragonmage achievement as soon as I get my hands on the expansion. Or if you could provide a chest file with, say, only the dragonmage achievement gained I could look into it. Did the chest file you uploaded earlier had the dragonmage achievement gained?
jimbouk, thanks for the sources. I will try to look into them soon.
Thanks, AndyMutz. I believe I saw the way to increase XP somewhere here: Link. You can find many usefull hints on how to edit your balance.txt files to change various aspects of the game.
i have uploaded a new chest file only with 2 gained achievements
My Dragonmage reached Level 5 + 15 (One hero reached level 5 achievement) and the Dragonmage reached level 15 achievement
I don't know if more than 1000 points can be gained with normal gameplay. Within a earlier game I edited the achievements with your editor to get all achievements. Then with the dragonmage achievement I got +20 points so that I got 1020 points finally.
As I don't have the achievement icon for the dragonmage, I put it as a small dragonmage character icon in the lower left corner of the achevements page.
To all other-than-German players, you probably won't destroy your savegame even if you set the dragonmage achievement for a non expansion game. But I haven't tested that yet.
So here it is:

Have fun cheating.
Oh, and one more thing. If you could gain 1020 points ingame with the DM achievement, gasper, than it means it is possible. The editor doesn't touch the points from achievements, simply because such data isn't even in savefiles. The editor only sets achievement bits to 1 or 0 and from that the game counts total points from achievements. But nevertheless it was a valuable piece of information, so thanks go to you, gasper.
