After days of downloading the FG Enhancement patch, I had my doubts this morning when my modem was disconnected during the night and the remote ISP server would not allow me access for a while. Once I obtained a stable ISP phone line connection, the downloading continued, but then unexpectedly the Free Download Manager program crashed TWICE with fatal bug errors!
I don't recall ever seeing this type of FDM software crash, and I have used this program successfully for years. I was very concerned something had been corrupted and had no idea why the downloading software was having such a rare combination of crashes, so during the remaining 10 hours of downloading I wondered how this time-consuming online adventure would end.
The patch download was completed very late this evening. After defragging my hard drive, I installed the Forsaken Gods DVD. Then I launched the FG Enhancement patch which defaulted to a JoWood directory. After choosing the correct Dreamcatcher directory, the EG Enhancement patch installed flawlessly. Then I launched the startup menu, changed some options and restarted to play the first new game as a test to get through the introduction and opening scene inside the room. There were no errors or crashes. Sehr gut!
My next decision is to properly preserve this huge FGE patch so I will not have to redownload it from Deutschland if my computer hard drive fails.
Vielen dank for all your helpful hints and suggestions!
Awesome! tyvm guys! been waiting for this long time.
can't explain how greatful i am for what you have done, no words can describe my feelings
also been hopes for CSP to finish their masterpiece for gothic 3 as well to experience a whole new game like gothic 1 and gothic 2 was.
I'm giving this patch a 10!
Performance is much better and graphics are completely overhauled than 1.74!
Nearly non bugs! (Well I've seen one bug in which the paladins appeared from nowhere)
The most successful patch for Gothic 3 (In my opinion)
Thanks for a good patch!
Now I can play on my Intel GMA 4500M with 15fps and not 5....
Just a quick one, are the official patches needed ?
This is an official patch which includes every previous patch.

I have a problem ... I have in my inventory the necesary ore but the option to speak with Soma to give it doesn't appear.. ( I'm supposed to give him 10 magic ore)
Edit: Sell them , buy them back , still doesn't work
Edit 2 : Ok , i have manage to find the problem... i realized that i have 2 types of ore with the same picture , but curious is that both have same name "ore" ... 19 first and 11 second , i go to the quest log and see that Soma need "Magical Ore " , and both of mine are named just "Ore" .
Ok , now watch this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qEm-ulkX8O0 (skip to 2:00 ), as you can see when he is giving Sora the ore it's saying "10 magic ore given" , and after this he looks at his invetory , and at second 2:57 he goes on top of the ore and the names is "Magic Ore" and in my case i don't have any magic ore , both of the items are just "ore " ......so it's a bug?
Screens : With my invetory
and screen from youtube( Unpatched version )

There are 3 types of ore ...2 mentioned above and one special for this quest witch is found in the mill near the Alaberth.
1st I really wanna thank the CPT guys for this amazing work.
now, I think I found a bug.
I am at Ardea now, and I have to collect all the artifacts around. when Conz gives me a mission to stop Asdis from fighting, I approach asdis and he challenge me to a dual. I win, and nothing happens. I report back to Conz and no dialog box.
Am I missing somthing or it's a bug?
Ok, I had to kill him, just winning doesn't cut it

So, it's actually finished? Thanks, I may try it if I could purchase a FG copy. I don't have a credit card and there's a shortage in boxed PC games being imported here.
I have a doubt. If I buy Gothic 3 in Steam, will it include this patch? Will i be able to play it with this enhancement without buying Forsaken Gods too? Or do i have to buy both?
This patch works only on Forsaken Gods . On the other hand , FG doesn`t require gothic 3 .It`s a stand-alone addon or something like that. If you want to try out this patch you need only to buy Forsaken Gods.
Zitat von Wisso
no russian? god dammit i have only russian version of forsaken gods... at least EE offers english? so i can overwrite my russian version?
Don't try to tell me a bullshit that G3FG EE doesn't have Russian language because it has unified stringtable for all supported languages and you may switch language of subtitles without replacing files in a Data folder. There is a significant difference between G3 EE and G3FG EE.
Zitat von CrashMorraKan
But Forsaken Gods Community Patch v2.0 can detect language of early Russian versions incorrectly because of a negligence of localizers they uses resources with links to the English version of addon.

Grund: Added new info
I just finished the enhanced edition.
The game looks great now!! The graphics realy improved a lot.
But i have a few questions:
1) I think this is a bug.
Hanz and Lee never offer me to teach any skills.
Not in Vengard and not in Gotha.
Since the paladin perk can only be learned from Hanz, i never could learn it.
at the start during the quest to collect 5 letters i missed Boris and didn't kill the cows. So i had 5 letters and completed that quest and continued the game. much later i killed the cows and the crazy bisons and recieved those letters. Boris even teach me hunting now. Is this normal?
Are ogers weaker in FG EE than in G3 v1.74?
In G3 had much trouble with one oger at a time, in FG they appear to be weaker.
I think the fire-attacks from firegolums, undead priests, shamans, etc are way to strong and there are no good rings or amulets with protection against fire.
When i picked up Hildur's necklace in Reddock, i had 2 of them in my inventory. so after turning all the artifacts over to Theodor i still had one of them in my pocket.
I collected 72 bundles of waepons, but they have no function (i think).
So why are they still in the game?
What doesn't kill you, makes you stronger!
