    You misunderstand, being called a Polak is an insult to anyone, no matter their ethnicity. You cannot insult someone who is Polish, for there's no greater insult than their own heritage.

    I just purchased Arcanum from Good Old Games. I can't load/install the unoffical patch. Any help would be appreciated.

    I haven't played Arcanum for years but got the idea again after seeing all the Steampunk people at Dragoncon this year.

    What version is the game you installed from GOG? I haven't purchased Arcanum from them, but from my experience with perhaps a dozen other games there, they usually come prepatched in the installer. This can actually be a curse with a couple games, where you prefer the game without the patch due to significant gameplay changes...

    GOG version is pre-patched to 1.0.7.4, otherwise it's identical to the US/UK release.

    Run the patch as administrator/disable the UAC. Also, check the Arcanum forum on GOG for more info.

    Starting today and running for a week GOG is having a sale on the diamonds of D&D. 9 games, $6.99 or less (USD) each or all for $30.01 (weird price). You get Baldur's Gate 1&2, Neverwinter Nights Diamond, Icewind Dale 1&2, ToEE, Dragonshard, Demon Stone, and Torment.

    Also weird, if you select 5 or more games and none of them are ToEE, when you choose ToEE the total price goes down. Troika games are so buggy they devalue other titles?

    I hope you guys are remembering to use the GOG button on top of the forum/site when you're buying from GOG. Doesn't cost you anything, but it helps to pay the bills here every month.

    Gentlemen.
    If you don't own Fallout, Fallout 2 or Fallout Tactics, you should definitely head to GOG.com and grab 'em for free right now! No strings attached, it's part of GOG's winter promo.

    If you already own them on Steam or elsewhere, hell, why not grab 'em anyway? Having a spare digital DRM-free copy can't hurt.
    The promo will last for about 45,5 more hours from the moment I'm posting this (until Saturday 1:59PM GMT, to be exact).

    (you may get a "we're overwhelmed by popularity of our service" message. Don't be discouraged and either F5 or try again a bit later)

    You can also get Arcanum for 3 bucks, if you somehow don't already own it.

    Is this the moment I confess I've never played nor owned Arcanum?

    Shadowrun Returns is also available on GOG.com. Don't forget to use the link to GOG from terra-Arcanum!

    If that is your deepest, darkest secret, you really need to go out drinking more.
