    ACHTUNG!!! ACHTUNG!!!
    Not that long ago Drog has released a new version of Arcanum High Resolution Patch which he enriched with some very useful features. For starters, configuring it is now easy as pie and very convenient, a game breaking bug has been fixed, a bigger font was added and it's been equipped with tools to easily run on modern systems. Forum thread here: http://www.rpgcodex.net/forums/inde...-resolution-patch-version-1-5-release.115869/

    CHANGELOG:
    -- The patch is now configured and applied via a config file, no more command line prompts.
    -- Many more settings and features are now available in the config file, to be further configured by the user to their liking.
    -- The vertical position of the middle screen menus (e.g. inventory or load save) can now be set to top, bottom or center (default).
    -- Most UI graphics have been cleaned up, the top shading has been removed and full size borders have been added.
    -- Added fullscreen backgrounds to the main menu, 3 variants are available: just black, fade to black, fullscreen wooden background (also applies to options and credits).
    -- Compiled a completely new crisp sharp size 18 dialog font which is true to the original.
    -- Increased preload distance, so that you won't see stuck objects at very high resolutions. This feature is also user configurable.
    -- Increased broacast distance, so that the followers can heed your commands at greater distances. This feature is also user configurable.
    -- Splash screens are now centered.
    -- Fixed all lingering UI bugs, such as the map menu navigation button not working properly.
    -- Resolved the issue with the Half Ogre Island captain not spawning.
    -- Added options to force the game to use windowed mode, software rendererer and double buffer.
    -- Scrolling distance is no longer patched to be smaller, and both scrolling distance and scrolling FPS can now be configured in the config file.
    -- Streamlined and cleaned up a lot of code. All patch scripts are fully commented.
    -- Fixed a 'run as administrator' prompt on newer versions of Windows.
    -- The DDrawCompat wrapper is included in the patch and can be optionally installed, recommended for Windows 8/10 users.

    That's a stolen news post, it's just copy pasted from Goral. Those are not your brofists. Why are all staff members so corrupt?

    He is supposed to be working on Pathfinder:Kingmaker and a bunch of other games right now. He can't play Arcanum right now! WTF. Is he scamming the developers by playing videogames instead of working? I pathfinder turns out to be shit I know who to blame.

    Have you noticed a significant spike in the number of downloads/visits to TA? Or maybe I should ask Taluntain

    There's a reddit thread about it with over 100 upvotes (plus RPG Watch thread).

    I'll just leave it here.

    As the highest rated Reddit user said, if it was 3D it would probably be as good as legendary Skyrim:

    I don't think Drog Black Tooth has it in the download system on T-A, so it's not tracking downloads. Would be a good idea to put all those downloads into the system there.

    Edit: Actually, it doesn't seem that downloads are displayed publicly there either. I can add an Arcanum category in our downloads vault on SP if Drog wants to add his stuff there. The download system there is automated and anyone can add/update content directly and track downloads.

    That would be great, thanks. What about visits, was there a significant spike? Or was it only minimal? Since there is reddit thread it should be at least a couple hundred more than usual.
