Dear fellow adventurers!

I am trying to launch the game for the first time, I have downloaded it via the GOG launcher and tried starting it, I get a small screen and then nothing. The Play button is grayed out until the small window disappears then I can click it again. I have tried changing the resolution in the games .ini without any success it is currently set to 800x600. Does anyone know why I can't launch the game :)?

Thank you kindly!

Well, the game is old and issues on modern systems may occur.

First of all, I would try launching the game using its own executable, not from GOG Galaxy.
If the game won't work even outside Galaxy, I would try setting its executable to run in compatibility mode for Windows XP and maybe to be run as administrator.

Anyway I strongly suggest you to use Arx Liberatis in order to run the game: it's an open source port of the game which fixes a lot of issues on modern systems.

Hey DR. Schliemann!

I actually tried that to without avail... hmm do you think that is the only to get it working :/? I really like running things through the Galaxy launcher, usually it is incredibly easy to :) this is the only game that is not launching for me so far :/

Highly recommend you install Arx Libertatis from the links provided above! It's really the only way I play. Works great here under Win10x64, v1903.
