YnK: does the timestamp on the files match the time when you installed the patch? If so, they're okay.
Does that work? Wouldn't the timestamp indicate the last time that file had been modified (i.e. the date that the HQ maps patch was originally made)?

All of the files in the folder and the folder itself has the same creation date, which is two days after the date on the patch executable (when it was downloaded). This is definitely my OS's work.
Just wanted to mention that Terra-Arcanum's download section is back up again. I'm not sure if the links on the front page still work though.

http://www.terra-arcanum.com/downloads/
not sure if this is useful to anyone else here but i realised my intergrated video chip(GMA 3650) could actually run Arcanum better WITHOUT software mode (-no3d parameter in shortcut) after i renamed the ddraw.dll file. i'm using Win 7 btw. renaming the direct draw DLL was supposedly only necessary for running arcanum in Win8, but i tried it anyway.

however window-mode caused major graphical glitches. black boxes everywhere, window only showed left side of display frame, and the graphics sort of "layering" on top of each other.

alternatively, i also found 3DAnalyzer ran arcanum very smoothly when i imitated a Nvidia 5900 FX card, with lighting turned off, and z-buffer on. haven't tried other settings for that.
