    I've been working on the Arcanum High Resolution Patch which I mentioned some time ago, and it's 99% complete now. The game can now be scaled to any resolution. Here are some screenshots of different resolutions:

    1024x768

    1680x1050
    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    1600x1200
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    The patch will be released when I deal with the few remaining bugs and playtest the game thoroughly. Regardless, the Arcanum High Resolution Patch will feature:
    • Full support for any resolution.
    • All elements of the interface perfectly centered.
    • All elements of the interface remain their original size with no custom graphics in any resolution.
    • Full compatibility with any mods that are based off the 1.0.7.4 version.
    • Full compatibility with older save games.
    Comments? Suggestions?

    P.S. Oh, and here's this screenshot just for fun.

    Hi, I thought you left.

    Looks very nice though. I can see how it would make traveling across Tarant a lot easier on the eyes.

    Fapping at the fucking speed of light.
    Glad you delivered, you're a true gentleman D.
    I assume that "compatible with mods" etc means it's fully compatible with your patch, ye?

    He is. Thx for leaving so you could finish this.

    How about scaling the UI, to boot?

    Nice. I just started up a new game of Arcanum today with your patch. I was feeling a bit claustrophobic.

    Awesome. Low resolution was the biggest distraction for me. Definetly playing Arcanum again with this.

    Drog, could you add some exclamation marks into it so you cater to a larger rpg player's demography?

    This looks cool. Got me reinterested in this classic again. In fact, I never did finish it.

    Complete this. Now.

    Pretty kick ass. I was disappointed when you said you'd stop working on modding. You should do more of it, bah, might as well become a developer or something even. At least keep it as a hobby.

    Nice. I'm thinking on replaying Arcanum and this thing could make for another walkthrough.
