Arx - End Of Sun is a new free and fan made game that is based on the first person dungeon RPG : Arx Fatalis developed by Arkane Studios. In our game world you will play out the events ( with a liberal dose of poetic licence ) that precede the original story of Arx Fatalis. You will no longer require a copy of Doom3 to play Arx - End Of Sun. We are now running on a custom version of the engine code and we use no assets from any commercial titles in our game.

You are probably hungry! is there a knife and fork icon on the right hand of the screen flashing? = eat some food from the inventory.

Or you might be freezing to death, move near a torch, or fire.

Thanks

Looks great, finally, congrats, really long dedication. I had problems, game apparently works fine except I can't see anything of the graphics, only a black screen and torchs/smoke and interface, nothing more, main menu is black too but options, start image and video demonstration, interface and sounds are ok

It depends on your OS, in Win7 it's something like:
- right click on game folder -> properties
- "Security" tab, then modify your user settings
I suppose this since the game needs to extract the library file when starting, and that won't be possible if you don't have write permission. Make sure that "ArxEoS.exe" inside the game folder inherits the write permission. Anyway, as solarsplace said, post the error message as I'm just guessing what the problem could be.

Hi

Because you are not providing the error message like we asked or will even confirm which version of Windows you are running we can only offer generic basic help based on guesses of what the error is!

I believe the issue is that the game cannot extract the "gamex86.dll" into the game folder "C:\Program Files (x86)\Arx End of Sun (Beta)\base\"

Can you see "gamex86.dll" in the above folder? if not try the following:

Open Windows Explorer. Browse to the game installation folder ( default = C:\Program Files (x86)\Arx End of Sun (Beta) )

Right click on the folder "Arx End of Sun (Beta)", select properties, select "security", Click "Edit", Click "Add", type your Windows user name, click "check names" make sure you got the logon name right! click "OK", now in the list click your Windows user name, click "Edit", make sure the "write" box is checked. Click OK 2 times. Now try the game.

Please try to run the game with admin rights and/or in compatibility mode, dunno if it could solve the problem though.

Hi

We have released a patch for the initial beta release that resolves all serious issues reported so far.

The beta release contains all available content and the game can be played from start to finish. We are not aware of anything unstable in the current release.

Thanks

I thought Arx End of the Sun was just another dead mod since there were very little information along these years .. I'm glad that I was wrong. Going to test it soon.

Hi, I'm having some problems with installing. Well, after launching setup nothing happens. Tried extracting it on c: and d: but it changes nothing. I also have full "read write" permission.

Dunno if specs have anything to do with it, but I'll post them anyway:

Nvm, I've put it on E: and now it works... So if you're having problems with installing, I suggest relocating setup file within some drives.
