    I love your work about the patch, but this almost excites me more than all the content you've already fixed/restored/whatever'd.

    Looking forward to it greatly!

    Finally, my 1920x1200 widescreen will actually have the proper Arcanum ratios instead of forced stretching of a crappy 800x600 across a widescreen, screwing up the aspect ratios.

    This + Drog's patch could be the final pushover that gets me to finish this damn game once and for all.

    No rush buddy, you do this for free/fun/bribe money/whatever, but man......I'm looking forward to this pretty hardcore.

    Registered to show my respect to Drog Black Tooth. I should have done that earlier with first unofficial patch releases, but this pure extraction of awesomeness was the last drop. I wish every game had such enthusiastic person who will polish stuff for his own amusement.

    Troika made incredibly good CRPG, but you made it perfect. I hope, once you finish with Arcanum you will check Baldur's Gate's modding possibilities.

    Огромное спасибо за всё. Так держать!

    As far as I'm concerned, Quin can keep his head wherever he likes. I like the black-on-garnet.

    It took me a moment to realize something was different.

    Everyone's head has to be somewhere. Where your's was when you came up with the idea of post in black text on dark background was the issue.
    Rule: no. Common sense: required.

    I stand corrected.
    Rule: yes.
    Thus it was spoken by Vorak Tree Bane.
