 :) :) :) Hey Kal, an old article stated that "Scientists have discovered that running causes cancer in laboratory rats". Well DUH... I'm not a GD rat!  >:( Never started distance running untill my late 40's. Prior to that was a sprinter and in high school could do a 5.2 first 50. Once in the army at Ft. Hood, Texas, in a 100 actually slowed down and walked across the finish line and still won the race. All in all, running and fitness has been my savior from a more or less reckless life style. Heck, I once warmed up with 250 lbs. and could do a full squat with 300 lbs. and do a dead lift of 400+ lbs. That eventually caught up with me in older life in the form of three inguinal hernias.

My folks used to rare about my passion for running. Did it six days a week year round, right on through winter, never less than 44 miles a week at lowest and up to 56 and more in the peak competitive season of 26 milers. Started gaming in the late 80's and have invested lots of cash. Used to think Millers High Life was the ultimate brew, then one morning after, opened fridge and saw that last bottle and it looked so green. Things started churning and hurried to the commode. Never fealt so bad since having the mumps years before and I figured it was time to stop.

What ever happened to the good old days when us kids smoked grape vine and chewed rag weed?

Back to gaming, I've discovered that old DOS games run really well in a dos box on Win 7 64 bit. Am now starting up with Conquest Of Camelot: Search For The Holy Grail and I have tons of others, was surprised at how many Sierra games I have.

Sorry about that blooper. As you can see I've corrected it.

Don't recall what category Heavy Metal F.A.A.K. was but it was quite enjoyable.

My secondary computer at 32 bit for older games, is set up on the kitchen table. Three days ago, was filling up jugs with filtered water, turned around to get lid for the current jug, bumped the table, spilled water on top of the monitor, immediately thought of turning off the monitor, but by that time the monitor made noises and went dead.  :o Luckily a relative had a spare monitor  8)

I was having trouble when visiting some sites. I could load the first screen, but couldn't do anything else. Even this forum, couldn't access any sub screens, posts, etc. Discovered it was windows User Account Control. Anything above the very bottom position was the culprit. So I'm leaving it off. Heck, I do have internet virus protection and firewall, so the UAC is a windows stinker.

Now back to Arx Fatalis. I've tried drawing the runes for SOS with no luck and even tried clicking them in the rune page. Not quick enough, have to do it faster? That's a bummer!

Still maintain that something, after installing Liberatis, was making health drop faster than normal, and same thing after uninstalling everything, then installing just Arx 1.21. So I opened the registery, searched out and deleted all references to liberates. Also liberates still had some stuff on the hard drive. I deleted that stuff. Now I've gotten down the trapdoor at start, found and put on the super stuff from the chair, and went to first remains on the left. The game character hasn't complained yet about being hungry. It's just that something in my pc didn't like liberatis and kept starving the character to death.

Have done a thorough scan and some stuff was detected, so who knows? Anyway, happy gaming and cheers.

So, you don't condone cheating and that's ok with me. I prefer cheating when my aim is to turn an inhuman hack n slash into an adventure game. And now, after trying liberatis and uninstajjing it, I'm still losing health faster than ever. Is there anyone out there that has the original version of ARX that I might acquire? Then I can patch it to 1.17. I may be in the wrong place to ask for these help issues. I just guess some people are incapable of any ideals other than their own and won't consider anyone else's desires that are contrary to their own.  :(

No offense K, but Liberatis sks! It made health decrease even faster!! I would dearly love to get the original version of Arx Fatalis, and patch it up to 1.7. That way I could use the 1.7 trainer to stay alive. It's been so long since playing through the game, it must have been with a trainer, just don't remember. Don't even remember where the heck I got this 1.21 version  ???

I downloaded the 64 bit one, ran it and it found my game directory. In my most recent save, my health was so low that after using liberatis that I couldn't eat enough. Health dropped much slower than before but I eventually died. So I am just starting over at full health. I imagine you'll tell me to cast heal or something, but I can't even cast sos to uncover all maps. That is a cheat spell more like a Z   a square box and another   Z

just make sure to patch up to date,(seems it is)
and then just use liberatis
i never died of hunger in the game, only got prompted once ever

to get out u need to go towards the castle and to the inn get papers signed after letting the gnoll go(not the huge troll the little guy trapped in there)
you get papers from a room where a troll is sleeping,
you can just cast fireball at the gate guard, which is funny...
arx is another one of those almost rogue games that wont hold your hand or show anything on maps etc

soo yea :P  prolly why there are only 4 side quests
1 of which u can fail (finding the little girl) once u get prompted to do so if you dont find her within 10 game minutes she dies.. all fun !
So, which liberates version to use? there are two or three hot fixes. Will using one work on my game already installed? How would I go about installing liberates and will it negate current saves?

I didn't know I was supposed to look down to see the lever  :o
Seems like since leaving that level, everything is easier.

I've done everything, repaired the elevator, etc. Can't see any place to step on the elevator, unless it's not down. No lever to press unless it's on the elevator, which I don't see. There was one room with a bunch of old ropes hanging but apparently doing nothing. I have a second rope... is it used where the hanging ropes are?

I know those two games are around here somewhere and maybe in the original boxes.

I believe I can play onwards now in Arx, managed to use bone on chair to get all kinds of stuff in inventory, including the super heal. Character still complains about being hungry but hey, at least no starvation.

You know Sir K, can't remember how the heck I actually got through A F way back when is was selling hot. Now I can't even get out of the dungeon before starving to death. The monsters are whoopsies, but the character's stomach is relentless. Something has got to give. Maybe I should just get back to finishing QG4 for the paladin export.


You know Kaldire, maybe if someone had a mailing address, they could send you A F 1.21 postage free. But I seriously doubt they would ever part with their original. pm's do wonders  ;)

My disk was updated with an unofficial patch, I think, that was cumulative which brought the game up to 1.21. Changes were made in how it handled xp. On my w7 64 bit system, it installed, automatically making proper changes in compatability mode and it runs just great. One big gripe though, the character must have a stomach big as a house. He keeps complaining about being hungry and eventually dies. There was a hex cheat to alter the Arx.exe to make the character invulnerable and never hungry, but the updated game exe showed different characters at the suggested offset. I need to rest and think about it for a while.
later dude
