Hey all,

I've been dying to try out Arcanum since I first heard about it through my gaming circles, and I recently picked it up during a sale here. I've been trying to patch it, as per y'all's advice, but I keep running into a problem to which my Google-fu cannot find an answer. The unofficial fan patch and town map patches download just fine, but my Norton Antivirus keeps flagging the high resolution patch as dangerous and then deleting it (tried all the mirror sites Drog listed: it gets flagged every time). Has the patch's file recently been corrupted or something, or is this just my Norton security disliking a not-widely-known patch? I'd greatly prefer to play the game with prettier graphics, so any help you guys can offer is greatly appreciated.

Ason2: Norton ...
Thar's yer trouble, matey.

I'd go with Kaspersky instead. Pricey, but far fewer false positives.

As far as the d/l itself, if the file size is precisely 115,419 KB (the same as the one I have in my archive, timestamped from Oct. 2010 and probably even older than that) it's unlikely to be corrupted; mine wasn't.
awesome thanks

Snowman59: Hi there,

So after installing the few patches (UAP, HQ Town and Hi-Res + one to set the game in french), my problem is that on the main screen, as soon as I move the mouse, the texts become blurry which make them impossible to read (see the capture below)

It's not the french patch (I removed it, didn't change anything) and it's not the Hi-Res patch (removed it too, still no change).
Also, the game is installed (like otther games) in a specific directory, not Program Files.

UPDATE : so i've uninstalled/ re-installed the game, launched it in "vanilla" version and the problem remains.
So either it comes from the game or I need to configure something with my graphic card (a GeForce GTX 750ti with the latest drivers 340.52).

UPDATE 2 : fixed it ! For those who have the same problem : turn off the Anti-Aliasing stuff in the settings of your graphic card.
Excellent! I had the same problem. What a simple solution!
I have released a new version of Arcanum Factory.

It allows you to create new items (weapons/armors/potions/generics/schematics), modify everything, add blessings/curses, create new art, add them directly to the OC containers and shops or even create custom backgrounds.

Your items will also properly appear in WorldEd.
