    I should also add that this Sacred port kicks serious a***. I don't think I've been so addicted since I finally deleted Sangband off my systems because of lost time.

    Looking at Sacred 2 on the Ascaron web site, I think I might buy several copies of this to encourage a port of the sequel :-)

    Cheers,

      Yes - you can continue to play on games using this key system if the central key management server is down. The ISP for LinuxGamePublishing recently jacked their rates by a factor of three, prompting a server move. Joy-of-joys British Telecom has dropped the ball and LGP is currently left with a SITREP cover page only. Which is a perfect opportunity to test the key system without the key manager being around.

      Thanks for letting us know about that.

        Any news on the game? I've been playing this on Windows and really liked - I just gave it up because it became too time-consuming...

        And another question regarding the multiplayer part: what about that? Is LGP providing the game servers or will we be playing on the already existing ones? I would solely buy this game to play it online yet I've read that Ascaron(?) is going to pull the plug on their main game server (the closed-net one, that is) in about two weeks...

        It's in German - the essence is that no Closed-Net gaming will be possible afterwards, only Open-Net, which means the characters will be stored locally and be open to manipulation.

        Will LGP set up a Closed-Net infrastructure?

          Time-consuming - that's a good description of this game. My evenings disappear alarmingly quickly when the beta is active! The beta is still going on - we were expecting another round at the weekend but it hasn't appeared yet.

          I'm assuming that multiplayer will be handled by LGP's PenguinPlay system. Beyond that, I don't know what plans they have for servers.
