    [Release] Gothic II Gold - IronKeep Community Patch v 1.0

    Gothic II: Night of the Raven is an excellent game, after all these years. However, it is still somewhat beset by bugs, even with the latest release. We have created a patch that aims to fix as many of these bugs as possible, and enhance the experience of those playing Gothic II Gold. As we fix more bugs, patches will be released. If there is a bug you would like addressed, please let us know. What we have done has been included in the changelog below. Enjoy .

    This product is meant to deliver a better NotR experience with next to no "on-the-house" additions. This patch (and all the subsequent versions) will be an incremental part of HoP builds, so if you have HoP installed (or in future CSI), you wouldn't need the "products below".

    However, at this point - this patch has some changes that ARE NOT present in HoP v1.1. This will be made otherwise starting with HoP v1.2.

    Great news! Although i don't really see Gothic 2 as an especially buggy game after the add-on and the official patches, it does have its fair share issues. While i'm not exactly sure how much you can do about this with tools you have right now, one issue that bothers me personally, is the way the game handles widescreen resolutions. After you load a savegame, the picture is stretched, until you talk to a npc. This seems to reset the camera somehow and the picture is not stretched anymore. That is until you load another savegame. Strangely Gothic I does not seem to have this bug.

    Thanks for the response! We aim to do as much as we can, we are looking into fixing many things that are still quirky engine-wise. FOV issues are among the things we want to fix .

    EDIT-

    @Larisa- that patch might actually conflict with ours, since we are making changes to the camera.dat.

    I remember one thing that should be removed from the game. I dont remember where exactly but when i played G2 NotR i found Myxirs dead body in a cave, and a note that i do not recall what was about. i think it was a cave pretty far to the north.

    This is odd because he is still alive in NotR if i am not completly wrong. He is atleast alive in G3.

    I believe you went to the cave where unneeded NPCs are sent. You're not technically supposed to see it .

    Thanks for the positive response, it's a huge motivator . If you find new bugs from the patch, or a bug we didn't fix you would like addressed, please don't hesitate to post in the bugtracker thread. Thanks all.

    Having only played the Night of the Raven (not the original, my version came in the Gothic Universe pack), I played as a Mage but found the incremental demands of increasing mana with each chapter a little unfair.

    To have to sacrifice 25 XP for 5 pts of mana in chapter 5 was downright silly. I could understand restricting other classes from increasing that stat easily, but for a mage? Any chance of tweaking that?

    Dito. I find the mage path to be ridiculously hard. Especially, now that the stats have been tuned for the warrior/ranger class. I understand that NotR must be a challenge, but when it's too hard, it just kills the fun.

    That being said, these patches only fix the game - we try to keep additions to a minimum. HoP/CSI are content mods - that's where you'll find content on top of fixes.

    When the next version of HoP - which is v1.2 - is released, all of ICPs changes and some content is likely to be added. That would be your best bet regarding mage mana costs.

    I third this PoV. We are trying to keep the content additions to as little as possible, but if there is a demand, we can incorporate fixes to make playing as a mage a tad easier. I first designed HoP to make playing as a mage easier, it's really unfair in NOTR.

    I am curently playing Gothic 2 N.o.t.R. with CP 1.0.
    First thing i noticed was that when i spoked with Vatras, he was telling me "Let us sumarize" but the subtitle was in german.
    The second thing is that is no difference betwen Young Giant Rats and Giant Rats.
    The third thing is that the Young Wolves are a bit too strong with 25 Str and 50 Hp.

    Glad to hear it .

    First thing i noticed was that when i spoked with Vatras, he was telling me "Let us sumarize" but the subtitle was in german.
    Check the .exe and ou.bin. Also, if the ou.dat file still exists, try renaming and/or deleting it.

    The second thing is that is no difference betwen Young Giant Rats and Giant Rats.
    No problem, a hotfix is upcoming, in which we will handle reported issues. Thanks for letting us know .

    The third thing is that the Young Wolves are a bit too strong with 25 Str and 50 Hp.
    We rebalanced them to be exactly half the strength of Wolves. They should give you a hard time, and remind you of exactly how weak you have gotten since Gothic 1's conclusion .

    ^Ok.
    What i would like to see in N.o.t.R. are some crossbows and some bows with skill bonuses, but that might be beyond the point of a CP.
    Another thing is the random number of Goblin Berries in each game.I know there are 17 in the entire game plus the ones you find on the paladins.The last ones are a pain in the a¤¤ because of their randomness, witch is really fustrating when planning an archer in Hardcore.

    Check Heights of Power and you might change your mind.

    I know HoP, i just wanted the bow/crossbow without the extras.
    Regarding CP 1, when i played Gothic 1 a lurker yielded 170 exp, in Gothic 2 is still 120.
    Lately i keep getting an error about missing a sound file, error wich appear when i try to sleep, usualy when i am in Khorinis, happened twice when i used Constantio's bed.I will make a screenshot next time when i will get it.Don't konw if it can be fixed, or it's something that happens on my computer only.
    Anyways, great job with the CP, you managed to add new things without ruinning the balance.Keep it like this in the future and i will be a very happy man .

    I have this problem with gothic (both 1 and 2) while running on windows Vista... for some unknown reason, the in-game music doesn't play and some ingame movies, as well as the intro (piranha bytes/jowood intro clip) are displayed in black and only the sound plays... Is this happening because the games don't support vista, and can something be done about that? thank you

    ^
    The problem with the sound does have a fix on this forum, i just don't know the exact thread, i am browsing from my phone, i just know it is a thread in Gothic Help, search "sound error " there.
    As for the video, disable video scaling in the gothic.ini.
    Sorry for the off topic.

    The thing is, the crossbow thingy would be an extra. Those few additions were capital exceptions and I am fighting Korianous not to include any content. The CPs are purely for fixing the game without "modding" it.

    That is how i see a CP too, even if i would like the crossbow.
    Like you said, it should be a firm line between a CP and a mod.It's hard to add new things and balance the rest of the game acordingly without changing it too much.
    If the bow/crossbow thing is to be done, then it should be optional to instal it.
