For those of you completely frustrated with the Dungeon Siege 2 bug, copy this file to your Resources directory, and go to the old man again. Your first conversation will have him ask for help. Your second conversation will let you get past him.

After you get past him, save your game, and delete the file. Everything should be normal then.

    I have completed DS 2 3 times, but only on Mercenary difficulty.
    A had got the first problem with the old man in Act 1, but Patch 2.2 fixed the bug.
    But now I have another problem in act 2. The dragon doesn’t come in the castle at the first time. I need help soon.

    hey there

    i’m having the same problem as Paladin, Act 2 Castle. i beat up the rockthrowers, finish off the mobs at the main gate, then speak to the commander. i get a short dragon’s head animation sequence here, but then when i take the elevator to the roof and walk to the ballista, the animation shows a heap of snow flakes and not much else. the ballista moves on some loads but not others, and Talon NEVER appears after the first animation, and not in the game at all.

    please help, i’m no programmer. i have absolutely no idea what to do once i’ve found the files. i have extracted the Logic.ds2res, and had a poke around, but i might as well be reading ancient greek for all the good it does.

    any help would be appreciated
