Default Any tips for new player?

December 27th, 2011, 12:00
Just bought this one during the Steam winter sale.

Are there any particular mods or community patches that I need to install in order to get this running stable at 1920x1080 on win7 64-bit?

Dunno. Just keep on checking the official forums. News and help are there first, of course.

Here is an overview : http://www.larian.com/support.php

You could look out if this official copy protection disabling patch is out there for team already.

It also depends, by the way, if you have the original game or the DKS version. Because DKS is said to be more newbie-friendly, or so I understood it.

Thanks, Alrik!

I got the Dragon Knight Saga version.

I'm guessing the DRM will be Steamworks, which I don't have a problem with. Is there a secondary DRM on this game that causes gameplay problems?

All you need to know is that the (excellent) add-on is a new game which continues immediately after the end of the original game. You can skip forward to the add-on if necessary.
Stuff you stored in the dragon tower can be accessed in the add-on. So remember to keep a full set of dragon armour there.

I don't know.

Tips - Just take your time and explore everywhere. There are many secrets in the game that are only found by the person who explores every nook and cranny.

Always thoroughly search every location, because there are some hard to find keys hidden out there that a hasty adventurer might miss.

Overall, just take your time and explore. Oh and a big tip, make sure to do all possible side content in the game. The side content is almost mandatory because you need it to level you up, or else you'll never be strong enough to continue the game. So do everything.

No mods or unofficial patches necessary for DKS, just make sure it's updated to the latest version.

I played through it fairly recently on Windows 7 64 bit, and the only issue I had was choppy sound during the cutscenes, but I don't think it had anything to do with the OS.

This is a slight spoiler in regards to character development, concerning two skills in which it is in my opinion really useless to invest to, due to the context of other game systems:
