    I bought Arcanum a month or two after it first cameout, played it for about three years after doing so, and now I want to start playing it again. The problem is that I can nolonger find the cheat codes that I aquiered over a year before I stoped playing. I'm not talking about the hints & tips that sites have now that I knew after the seconed time threw the game. I'm looking for cheats that max out "ability or stat points" as well as abilities such as magic and tech. I'm pretty sure I got the ones I had on ign.com but they apparently nolonger have them. So please share any info that you might have. I will do likewise if I ever find my copy.

    I never knew such cheats existed. Anyway, I'd advice you to go here and download the Arcanum Savegame Editor. It lets you change any stats exept your health points. but that can be done by giving yourself charachter points and investing them in hp.

    Maybe it would help if you played it on easy?

    I find the difficulty levels on Arcanum to be a joke. They're all the same. And anyway, if the guy wants to cheat, let him. It's not like it's your gaming expirience he's ruining...

    Cheating can be fun, I once filled my inventory with plastic-explosive and covered Tarant with it. Then went running up and down the streets blowing up the whole city.

    If you cheat you'l be spoiling the fun of an RPG. Cheats are for action games.

    In my experience, it's true for all games, be it RPGs, RTS's or Action games. Starcraft was never the same once I got to know the cheats.

    Some cheats can be used to get something you can't get, like a secret unit in Age of Mytholy.

    And some cheats can be used in horrible games to get through quests that would be impossible to do otherwise because of bad coding. But that is neither here nor there.

    And some special units are unavaliable until you finish the game...

    Well, now that the Save Editor has been mentioned, has anyone else experienced a problem where it is impossible for your character to heal or be healed after using it?

    No, but, that might happen if you change your magic tech alignment.
