I don't know what's wrong but the game or mod almost never recognize the spells except the one you draw a straight horizontal line.

Since Arx Fatalis doesn't work for me (the game crashes) using the mod is the only way to make this game playable.

If you're having difficulty drawing runes and are using Arx Libertatis 1.1.2 (the latest stable version), you can try the newest development snapshot of AL - we have added an alternative rune recognition algorithm some time ago.

To enable it, head to Options, Control Settings and tick "Alternate rune recognition" and you should be all set.

Also, we'd like to hear your feedback about the feature, so we know how it works for people.

Does it change anything regarding the original behavior?
Yes, it completely changes how individual runes are recognized - before each rune was simply a series of up/down/left/right/diagonal/... directions whereas now runes are recognized as shapes. There is however no change to how runes are combined into spells or to which spells are available.

Will have to try it thanks!

Don't know if you got any feedback on this feature, but it's a massive improvement. Runes that I simply could not draw before, are now trivial. Thanks

Sorry for bothering you on an old post but I recently bought the game and I have no idea how to apply these dev builds. Are there any instructions?

Install the game and then manually extract the files from the Arx Libertatis archive over your existing Arx Fatalis files.

Hope this helps.

I put what I extracted into the arx fatalis folder but it doesn't seem to have changed anything. I don't know what I 'm doing wrong

It does but none of the new menu options like better rune recognition appeared.

Have you tried uninstalling everything and reinstalling (without Galaxy if you use it and in somewhere like C:\GOG Games NOT Program Files or Program Files (x86).

Then try downloading the self-installing (slightly earlier build) executable found at http://wiki.arx-libertatis.org/Download and see if that works.

Good luck.
