Sacred 2: Fallen Angel Discussion
also as far as i can tell, nobody else has yet either so it's probably something really trivial happening to you
i understand the frustration but you have to also remember, nobody had to even make the save game editor in the fast place, and nobody had to edit it or add features to it or anything, so saying stuff like "thanks for nothing" kind of just seems rude considering the time they have put into it, how would you feel if you spent time making something then suddenly some random person starts spouting out like you just did.... i'm sure you would feel a little under appreciated
a little politeness and courtesy in your posts with actual explanations of what you did or didn't do go a long way to helping others understand the problem, and potentially assist you in your problems, but when you come barging in all worked up and just ranting it makes it harder for people to help you and sometimes not want to help you at all

What can't use the female dog name or AH here, are "we" so F'ing chicken sh... eh crap to allow some straight talk???????
But, getting to the point of this post, upgrading the game to version 2.43 made my characters able to choose higher difficulty than they were able in version 2.34. Curious as this was, it allowed me to find the byte in savegame file that is responsilbe for available difficulties. Hence, the new version of the editor allows you to change the difficulties. I have tested it on version 2.43 but the editor should (NOT TESTED) work well with versions before 2.43. If anyone can confirm it, fell free to try.
Editor changelog (! - fixes; + - additions):
! fixed finding the character name in savegame file (it could get buggy sometimes);
+ added difficulty changing;
+ added "Level up" and "Level down" buttons.
The level up and level down buttons increase character level adding correct number of skill points, attribute points available skills and setting correct xp (all this data comes from SacredWiki). BUT BEWARE! It seems that the weapon and combat art slots are also stored in savegame file and are not based on level itself. It means that if you level up your character to level 200 using the editor, you will gain all possible skill and attribute points but you will have only ONE weapon and combat art slot. Maybe I will find it sometime, but for now please level your character at levels 3, 11 and 21 ingame only (according to SacredWiki those are the levels you gain additional weapon and CA slots).

i always thought it was stupid how you had to do it all again for every character, if this works it's a life saver, specially when you reach that point where the current difficulty is getting too easy but cannot be bothered to finish the main quest yet again grrr
also about the version differences... i was always using 1.43 and never had any issues, so how much difference is there really in the savegames between versions?
my own personal curiosity aside, good job yet again karach0s
it also leaves a 0kb sized decoded file.
Sora2555, I can only guess that means the editor doesn't have write priviledge in Sacred 2 savegame folder (0kb decoded file is the main clue, but it is strange since if the decoded file is 0kb then where does the editor read file contents from???). If you are using Vista, it may help to run the editor as the local administrator or give it writing priviledges to sacred 2 savegame folder. Or maybe allow the editor to run external application (the decoder) if your firewall or antivirus asks you to. Or you could copy the savegames to some temporary directory which you are sure they have write priviledges (local TEMP directory?), edit the file there, save it and manually copy it to the Sacred 2 savegame directory. Other than that I have no idea, since I'm using XP (and as an administrator, which isn't very safe ).
btw, I run win7 and XP. I use XP for sacred 2. Same problem in both win7 and XP. disabling firewall, moving to another dir, neither does the trick.
