Not much to go on but a couple of questions.

Can you play the single player game okay?
Can you connect to the Closed servers?

If you can do both of those then we know your game is installed properly.

Are you trying to make your own server in which case you will need to configure your router to open up some ports of which I cannot help with as I dont understand how all that stuff works.

I don't get the "connecting to local server" message when I start up my game.
I get the sacred logo and a lot of green text then a couple of splash screens then the main menu appears.

If no one else has any suggestions I reckon it wont hurt to uninstall your game (make sure to deactivate it if it asks you, though that might not happen in your case) and then reinstall the game with no patches.
Then see if you can at least get the game started.

That "connecting to local server" message apears very fast, only have time to read it on slow computers or if your a very fast reader.

Anyways, i would start with checking that your anti-virus/firewall software doesnt block sacred.
The other thing that happened in earlier patches and do still happen with 2.4 but doesnt block game from running anymore is the sacred 2 updater. It starts with the game and then usually just hangs, so after i'm done playing and exit sacred 2 i usually have to terminate it manually. In earlier patches the updater also caused the game to halt, alt-tabbing out and terminating the updater process also made the game continue to load. This is the most likelly what is happening for you.

Please post a dxdiag file.
In windows go to start/run and type in dxdiag.
Click ok and let it automatically do its stuff.
When finished click on Save all Information.
Then post the txt file that was generated here, as an attachment so it doesn't fill up the whole thread.
Thanks.

I should have asked for the dxdiag at the beginning.
It appears to me that you have integrated graphics below the minimum requirements.
Your notebook cannot run Sacred 2.

sorry

If the game gets to the line "Connecting to local server..." and then simply exits this means that something is blocking communications between the server s2gs.exe and client sacred2.exe processes on your machine. Recheck your firewall settings. Patching the game will require renewing the permissions in your firewall.
