There's a Deep Silver rep on the Steam Community forum and he said the community patch works just fine and even posted a link to it there.

Thanks for pointing this out. I've been in the mood lately for a game like this, and all this talk about Sacred 2 Gold is making me want to play it. I played the original (without expansion) on the Xbox 360 and thought it was pretty good, so I grabbed it during the sale.

Gonna install it and the community patch and see how well it's held up.

EDIT:

I'm working on standardizing the Greenlight interface. What do you guys think?

Guys, is there a way to reprint the receipt from steam? Or the "Licenses and subscriptions" found here are valid like a proof of purchase?

After a purchase, they email you a receipt.

Only with games bought off the store, I usually buy from GMG and Amazon...

Are you asking for a receipt from a retailer you didn't make the purchase from?

Nope, how does that even work?

edit. I was talking about this kind of receipt:

and I was wondering if this should be enough as a proof receipt:

Eh, to be honest those are pretty worthless to keep track of -- the only major concern is you have some way of proving your Steam account is, in fact, yours should you lose access to it (can be done through a credit card number or physical retail serial key).

Keep in mind -- barring European Union protection laws -- Steam can revoke your games at any time for virtually any reason.

That's useless then, thanks.

I've heard about a guy who lost access to a game and steam asked for a proof of purchase, so I was a little worried.

Most of the people who lose access to individual games bought from shady retailers and/or third parties who were probably selling pirated/fabricated keys. So long as you're making the purchase yourself from legitimate retailers like Amazon or Green Man Gaming and there's a proof of that purchase on those respective accounts you'll be fine. I've yet to see an instance where someone was 'unjustly' stripped of their game(s). They might not have been aware of the illicit nature of the key(s) but you're always taking a risk buying something from a random person on the internet (as opposed to a legitimate website).

That can also pop if you sign in to Steam through a browser, even on the same machine.

Still, if you didn't initiate it you may wanna scrap that password. Especially if you use the same password for the email account tied to that Steam account.

Using Google Translate:

- "Good to the auxiliary" writes the first poster
- "Thanks a landlord it! ! !" claims another user
- "Support flour guns." raves an enthusiastic supporter

I also really dig their forum message, "Please observe the provisions of the [Chinese Steam user forum Generic Codes] at any time, let us join hands to build a harmonious atmosphere of the Steam Community."

Seriously though, it's a great extension. Got a mention on GAF the other day, I'd expect the installs to continue to climb.

Haven't checked Steam or CAG in a while, but had to get the Darksiders Franchise this time around on Amazon. I can help out with the $5 EC credit if anyone needs it.

I'm going to drop this question here as the Origin thread regulars must have nodded off: do you miss out on anything by playing Crysis 2 and not having played Crysis 1 or Warhead? I ask because of the Origin $5 deal. Unfortuately I missed the $1 Crysis 1 deal yesterday.

There's not a ton of story to the series. There's a few nods here and there that have more of an impact if you played the first (like who you get the suit from) but for the most part it's a new cast of characters and you likely know most of the story just from the trailers.

They play a bit differently, so I'd still suggest getting the earlier games. They're more about more open levels, and more ways to tweak your playstyle.
