It sucks that the unofficial fan patch "fixed" the reflection shield exploit on summoned creatures. I miss my permanent summons... maybe I'll reinstall Gog's Arcanum without the unofficial patch.
The patch just makes my game crash when launching. Windows 7 Pro 64-bit.

Does it do it when you start a brand new game as well? Once you install the patch, you can't continue any pre-patched games.

I run the game on Win 7 64-bit, no problem. If you're having problems even getting the game to run, try right-clicking on the Arcanum icon, clicking Properties, and typing or pasting the following into the Target window, including the quote marks:

"C:\GOG Games\Arcanum\Arcanum.exe" -no3d -scrolldist:0 -scrollfps:70

If that still doesn't work, try running the game in compatibility mode set to an earlier version, such as Vista, or even Win XP.

And if that doesn't work, it may be a graphics card compatibility issue; which I can't help you with, but others here might be able to. Good luck.

Thanks, I tried compatibility mode on all the XP settings and even Windows 2000, but I'll try the shortcut target commands too. I couldn't even get into the main menu and have no previous saves anyway so that wasn't the issue.

- UPDATE: Wow, I tried all of that, and also removed it from Creative ALchemy just in case. Nothing, still crashing instantly before getting into the main menu. I guess this game is lost on me.
