Thanks to Bandobras Took for pointing that out here.
On a minus side:
* Ubisoft decided to shut down their online servers 1.6.2021 for legacy games. As well as that's understendable, because of the game age. Game's DRM relies on them and without online servers reachable you can't use your bonus content or play the DLC. Which still can be bought. This is quite ironic.
https://steamcommunity.com/app/238750/discussions/0/3115908865100513179/#c3078754982927613659With new Ubisoft titles appearing every year, we are faced with the decision to retire the services of our legacy titles."The relevant paragraph concerns ULC."ULC (unlockable content) such as maps and skins will also be disabled, meaning that you will no longer be able to unlock them."I assume that since entry to Act 2 and Fort Laegeaire require a change to the standard function of the game (removing the guard on the bridge to Seahaven and getting arrested when entering Karthal) that these changes were implemented as ULC.The workaround detailed earlier on this thread then is the only way we can get past Act 1, and we can't get arrested and sent to Fort Laegeaire, unless we can convince Ubisoft to change these events to in game flags rather than ULC.
One can only hope, that they will rectify that error by removing this DRM protection, otherwise they may start to return money to all who bought DLC or any Deluxe Edition.
The remaining ULC is probably lost forever.
