Was the patch released for the Steam version? I don't currently have the game installed, but have been looking for a reason for another spin.

Patch is online!

Patch was released on Steam a few moments ago! I've tried it and it works fine.

It's nice to see a company care about the quality and stability of their game.

Dark Messiah is more or less a successor for Arx Fatalis.

BTW, if you want to thank Arkane, there's a contact formular

I wish they'd make a patch for that game, speaking of. I didn't realize this game was on Steam, I might have to go pick it up, especially since it's so cheap and has been patched for Windows 7

This game would be great if somebody would modify the game to include physical runes for people who suck at drawing them.. I was a huge fan of Ultima Underworld, but the "draw the runes" aspect of Arx Fatalis completely and utterly killed the game for me.

After trying it with the new patch, apparently they still didn't address the fact that the 2D overlay elements of the game seem to require a CGI rendering farm or a video card from around 2001 to display above 12fps.

I'm sorry but this patch won't do any miracle and suddenly fix all issues with this 8 years old title. Arx is and will remain a DirectX 7 game in which all menus & UIs use Win95 / Win98 GDI, which is very poorly supported under Vista & 7. Character creation page remains especially slow & laggy, even if disabling antialiasing in drivers control panel may improve perf on a few systems.

Did you also try the render fix option?
