The 1.6 patch is for the "expansion" to Knights and Merchants which is called "Knights and Merchants The Peasants Rebellion" (KaM TPR) and was released in around 2002. The original KaM called The Shattered Kingdom (TSK) from 1998 which you have is a different game with a different set of patches available for it (1.32 is the latest).

If you want to buy TPR you can get it very cheaply from here: ... 38107a1f1b

Hi Lewin,
thanks for the quick reply. You are totally right, i got TSK and TPR confused.
The Link to gog is great. But here i was wondering, gog shows the game as English only. is it possible to play the English gog game with the german 1.6 patch with german language?

I'm not 100% sure if you can apply the German patch to the English version of the game... you might not be able to. A long time ago Litude (who coordinated the 1.6 patch) said he would release language packs to convert between languages, but I'm not sure if that is still the plan.

By the way, you should checkout the KaM Remake, it has all languages included in it and you can switch easily from the options menu:
There are lots of other advantages too like bugs fixed, online multiplayer and higher resolutions supported. You need TPR installed to play it (doesn't matter what language of TPR).

I still intend to release language patches in the future, but I don't want to give any ETA.
You should be able to install the German patch on the English version if you change the Language string in the system registry at HKLM\SOFTWARE\(Wow6432Node\)Joymania Entertainment\Knights and Merchants TPR from "English" to "Deutsch". From the top of my head I think everything should get translated and work properly except for the fact that the TSK intro movie will still be in English.
