Announcing a new stretch goal, Hard Mode module for Arcanum, it will be released at $1500 of total donations (we're currently at ~$1100).
This is basically a rebalance patch/difficulty overhaul mod that I wanted to do for a long time, it will be completely optional (so purists can still enjoy the original experience) and will include:
- Complete overhaul of all enemy stats and abilities, but in a fun way. No health sponges, just harder hitting enemies with new attacks and abilities (e.g. more spell users and unique creature abilities), some AI tweaks here and there. Nothing too crazy, but you won't fall asleep while playing the game anymore
- Overhaul of all firearms in the game, guns will do more damage per shot (so that you don't have to hoard thousands of bullets) but will be a bit slower (especially the revolvers), currently a lot of early game guns including various revolvers, shotguns and rifles are almost completely worthless and it's a very sad state of affairs
- No XP per hit. Your party members will no longer be "stealing" your XP. XP will be granted only on kill and it will be party wide. XP values will be tweaked a bit so that reaching both level 50 and level 100 feels rewarding, and it's neither too fast or too slow
- Assorted tweaks to the game's mechanics. E.g. the Speed stat will be reworked and will have lower and upper caps to make it less broken, backstab will be slightly nerfed, fist damage will be buffed a bit, spell damage (and magic in general) will be tweaked so that more spells are useful. Some spells might be replaced altogether, e.g. with cut beta spells like Poison (which is a really cool looking spell with unique graphics and sound effects that sadly remain unused)
- And much more. I'm always open to suggestions which you can voice on our Discord server

For a long time Arcanum was seen as one of the buggiest cRPGs. Although there were some fix packs floating on the internet, most of them were poorly done and not compatible with each other. A complete and tested community patch was needed. A pure patch that just polishes the game without adding any questionable content or changing the gameplay in any significant way.
I decided to make such project a reality. I've been replaying the game many times, fixing a lot of bugs, omissions, inconsistencies. The problem was that one man simply can't find all the bugs on his own. But with the great help of so many fans from all across the globe this patch was made a reality.
And if you're wondering who I am, I'm just a long time fan of the game. When I decided to start this project, I spent time researching the game, learning how it works. It's been a long way, but now I've accumulated a great deal of information on the game and its internal workings, including basics of the engine and most file formats.
The patch consists of several modules:
- UAP Base
All the bug fixes plus Extra Animations, Extended Ambient Tracks, HQ Townmaps and HQ Music.
- High Resolution Patch
Allows the game to be played at any resolution. Defaults to 720p. Improves Windows 10 compatibility.
- Official DLC
Adds 7 additional mini-campaigns. You can choose them in Options -> Game -> Module.
- Race Mod
Makes Orcs, Ogres and Dark Elves playable with their own portraits, backgrounds and unique NPC interactions
- Beta Content
Various things restored from pre-release versions of Arcanum.
- Misc Mods
Various miscellaneous mods and additions.
- The patch is compatible with only English language versions of the game and will not install on localized versions.
- Old saves are generally incompatible and will cause crashes and lockups in many locations, please make sure to start a new game.
- If used with the Steam version, it's likely the game won't launch through Steam anymore, please use the provided desktop shortcut to run the game.
