    Here's a quick update to address a minor bug.

    Version 1.1a:

    - Fixed a crash when clicking around in character pick/create menu.

    Hello Drog, thanks for the awesome patch! Working great, no bugs found.

    Q: Is it possible to display interface scaled up to the screen size (at least for 4:3 resolutions) instead of original?

    No, it's not possible (without redrawing the graphics for a specific resolution, of course) nor desired. No upscaling/stretching/custom graphics will ever be used in this mod. This is the policy of the project which is reflected in the feature list.

    thanks Drog Black Tooth.

    I hate to star new game, but this is worth a try.

    also, do you think you can
    1. increase the speed of the mouse in game a bit 2. also allow us to move the map further and increase the map moving speed especially with your great invention now.

    thanks again.

    Read this thread: Arcanum command line arguments

    In case you don't know how to use them, hit Start -> Run... then type in your Arcanum.exe location with one of the command lines in that thread, changing whatever you feel like. Alternatively you can create a shortcut to your .exe file and modify its command line in 'properties.'

    Example:
    D:\Sierra\Arcanum\Arcanum.exe -scrolldist:0

    That would make the map scroll distance infinite, as Drog explained in the thread.

    Thanks for the mod, Drog.

    I can confirm that for the most part it works in Linux under Wine with the -no3d -doublebuffer arguments. Scrolling seems 'jumpy' but that may be more of a symptom of the engine.

    Also, small bug when using the default scrolldist at at least 1280x1024, occasionally the vertical direction (it may also be horizontal, hasn't occurred yet) will 'lock', not allowing you to scroll further up without first scrolling horizontally. It might be related to the character going offscreen, not sure.

    Again, sorry if this has been reported before, just mentioning the problems I've had.

    I just wanted to say how glad I am to see that this site is still here, and that so much work is still being done for Arcanum. Still one of my all time favorite games, and my favorite CRPG. :)

    Thanks to you all, and a gulper of grog.

    :( http://terra-arcanum.com, in the downloads. On that note someone should probably update the first post in this thread.

    Sorry to resurrect an old thread but.....

    is there anyway this mod can be used with a nocd or something similar so I don't always have to use my cd to play the game.
    Because the mod changes the exe file my old nocd wont work.

    I am using the mod with my retail version of the game and it works great but I always try to run my games using a nocd hack.

    Please don't attack me for asking this question. I have a legit version of the game that I bought. But like every other game that I buy retail (as opposed to downloaded versions like Steam) I like to not have to bother with using the cd.

    thanks for any non flaming responses :)

    Welcome to the forum, stubbie!

    I'd suggest downloading the UAP and swiping the nocd exe from it.
    Although the high-rez patch should be compatable with any version, Drog did tweak the exe a bit, so maybe that'll help.
    On second thought - you really should use the entire UAP. It really, really improves the game.

    Welcome to the forum, Arbiter!

    You can find it in the downloads section/Arcanum/High Resolution Patch.

    Thanks Drog!

    I finally got a new computer and excited to play through again with something that can more than keep up with Avernum. I'm glad I stopped by TA and saw your patch

    Hey guys I posted this question in teh hints and tips thread but maybe it applies here moreso.

    Like the poster above, I can't get teh no-cd uap arcanum.exe and teh 1.1a hi-res patch to work together. If I copy the uap patched .exe over the hi-res patch'ed .exe I lose the hi-res stuff and if I use the 1.1a hi-res patch'ed arcanum.exe I lose the no-cd functionality and who knows what other functionality from teh UAP.

    How do people get them to work together? It seems both the UAP and the hi-res patch copy new versions of the arcanum .exe into the /arcanum folder.....so no one version has both sets of fixes!

    Me am confused!!!!

    Thanks in advance...
