It means you shouldn't download anything from Demonoid. That link was removed some time ago.
On page 1, in the first post there is three links:
The latest version (12/28/2009) of the fan patch. Essential. Must have. Get it here. http://www.terra-arcanum.com/downloads/arcanum/fixes/UAP091225.exe
High-quality townmaps (Better looking in-game maps, also fixes some potential missing map errors): http://www.terra-arcanum.com/downloads/arcanum/fixes/HQ_Townmaps.exe
And the High Resolution Patch. Weidu-based, so follow the directions to set it up for your system. Will allow you to run Arcanum at pretty much ANY resolution, provides an optional "compact" UI and optional high-res fonts: http://www.terra-arcanum.com/downloads/arcanum/highres/HighRes1.1a.exe
The website from which those are from is not called Demonoid. Should they also not be downloaded?
I don't get it. I have Windows 7 32 bit.
I installed Arcanum, works great. Installed the high-quality townmaps. Works great. Then, when I install the High Resolution Patch and try to start the game, it's just a black screen. The computer is not locked up but I can't go to task manager and I cannot CTRL-ALT-DEL or anything. I end up having to push reset on my computer.
I've tried running High-Res as administrator, and tried a variety of different resolutions.
The only thing I can think is that maybe I should not install Arcanum inside of Program Files? Has this happened to anyone else? I can't figure out what the problem is.
THIS FIXED IT: Also right click the arcanum shortcut, select properties and add "-no3d -doublebuffer" to the end without " ". (should look something like this C:\games\GOG.com\Arcanum\Arcanum.exe -no3d -doublebuffer)
