    Sure it is, if you're legally a paedophile, you're going to jail.

    All of the big boys, yes. There are however three hacks made by Drog which aren't there. They are small, yet can be quite valuable to some (me for example, but lately we could see how other people ask for them as well). How about adding these babies to the download section when some free time is found?

    Did I forget about something? Ah yes, the mentioned hacks:

    ArcanumXVirgilDebug.dat - aka Virgil's Debug Menu. A hack which adds a special cheat menu to Virgil's dialogue. Especially useful for quick tests of particular characters or just some non-commital amusement.

    ArcanumXNoNoise.dat - a hack which turns off the annoying sounds connected with the first spell in each elemental college, the Tempus Fugit spell and the krag/familiar fidget.

    ArcanumXNoMovies.dat - a hack which turns off the Sierra and Troika videos which are normally played at every game launch.

    All of those hacks need to be simply put in one's Arcanum folder to work properly. They most propably work regardless of game version.

    He debugged Virgil? So Virgil is actually usable now?

    Xz: Virgil's been working pretty good for a while now. This latest bit just adds a boatload of cheat options.

    Bob: Let me know when you're going to do so. I'll have a couple gigs of art ready by then.

    (Just kidding.)

    Nah. First off you must be determined to be a pedophile. Secondly, as a pedophile you must be determined to have touched young people. Thirdly as a pedophile you must be shown to have inserted an organic object into a hole belonging to a child.

    JFK was a womanizer, and they've confirmed that he has children from women he wasn't married to. That isn't the fact you hear toted about him though. People who die tend to be canonized. It's the classic 'don't speak ill of the dead' belief, my dear.

    We won't be re-constructing the subdomain. It'll stay dead. It was Drog's. Drog's not here, so subdomain goes too. Drog already deleted everything from it so we've removed the account completely now.

    The patches not already on TA will be uploaded to our download place.

    Drog's website I don't believe needs to be reconstructed. It was mostly the changelog which as you say, is in the patch anyway so there's no real point having that online as well.

    Not everything. Just the patches themselves. My attitude is it was Drog's domain, if he doesn't want it online, it won't be online. But the patches and things which Arcanum fans want will be put online as per our policy of "If it's for Arcanum and people want it, we should have it".

    Mainly for everyone elses knowledge, I'm currently going through server logs to confirm just what Drog has and did do. Gimme a few days.

    Uh, not? You have to actually sexually assault someone or consume child porn to end up in the legal system.

    And once you've convicted for having done that, you're legally a paedophile.

    No, you're legally a sex offender.

    I admit, I have not read the complete law texts of the United States, but I read a bit, and didn't find any reference to the word "pedophile". Swedish law never mentions the word.

    There are of course other countries, but I didn't have the energy to look them all up.

    As far as I'm aware, most countries classify pedophilia as a mental disorder (I don't agree with this, but that is moot), not a crime.

    No but there is indeed a provision that says that you can't fuck someone under the age of X. The value of X being dependant on where the hell in the world you are. In MJs case California, that would be 18.

    Well of course. But at least in Sweden, most sexual assaults against children are not committed by pedophiles, and there are a fair amount of pedophiles that never commit any crimes at all.

    Pedophilia in itself is not a crime, though there is obviously a bit of a risk for that happening, since the legal options for a pedophile wanting to act on his sexuality are - to put it mildly - few.

    Putting "=" between Child molsters and Pedophiles is simplifying things. The world is not black and white etc.

    Here in Australia, paedophilia is both a mental disorder and a crime, and as events not too long ago showed, we DO NOT WANT.

    (Long story short - paedophile gets caught, serves his time, attends councelling and takes injections to kill his sex drive. He gets relocated. Woman with three kids is for some reason reading the readily available list of sex offenders. Woman recognises paedophile as new next door neighbour. Shit hits many fans. Media keeps 'accidentally' releasing information on his subsequent relocations. Australian public has many many shit-fits, except for those of us who actually paid attention to the story and noted the fact that he no longer had a sex drive. Australian public ignores saner people. Bloke disappears off the face of the planet. It was quite the drama for a few months there.)

    By the way, does this event have to do with all the downloads in the download section leading me to a page with FAIL written? :/

    (Can't download A:WIP)

    Note to self: Going off-topic in HoL has an effect of compound interest that would make Einstein to shit his trousers.

    Further note: Referencing popular culture at the same time can crash the server and should not be attempted.
