    Hell yes! The High-Res patch is running perfectly...

    But there's one more thing, why couldn't you have fixed the menu "ends". You know, it feels weird to look at the bars ending suddenly...

    Maybe you should try and make some corners.

    Thank you so much, Drog Black Tooth!
    I haven't played Arcanum in more than a year, after I bought my widescreen monitor to replace my old dead one. Now I can play again, and how! You did such a great job, I hardly could ever do anything like this!

    I use:

    -scrollfps:60 -scrolldist:10

    (1440x900 resolution)

    Scroll distance of 10 is the default before you install this mod, which then sets it to lower so that you can't take advantage of your higher resolution to see too far.

    Scroll FPS of 60 makes scrolling faster so it doesn't feel like you're scrolling a millimetre a minute. You can raise or lower this if you feel scrolling is too fast/slow on your resolution :)

    Has anybody done this? I was hoping to read Drog's user documentation on this patch, but his link is dead.
    Is there a ReadMe that came with the download I could reference?

    You have not downloaded the most recent versions, then. Just use the link Drog shared four posts above to download his work.

    Have you tried running the high res batch file from an already-open command prompt?

    I'm also having issues with this patch. When I try to setup (native) 1280x800 resolution, the main screen gets all skewed (to about 1/3, on the left side). Strangely, 1024x768 works fine. This is for GOG version of the game.
    Any thoughts?
