Programming all the mod, very long journals and too much hours for the last two years only on my spare time and only by me, that is the reason for the long waiting.

Re-designing the whole line story and adding new quests and things.

Working improving and fixing the new gameplay.

Working on all the game textures.

Designing new and custom scripts for NPCs and the new quests/events for the whole game.

Making experiments with some ideas that I had recently for the mod.

Re-designing the game and levels.

Designing NPC new code scripting and singular characters programming.

Testing gameplay and fixing all possible bugs.

Probably the game will have new 6 different endings, new primary and secondary quests, enough new NPCs on the levels and new shops, there is a new shop of a goblin called Shok, and a kind of rare blacksmith place with new primary character called Alessandro.

Too, too much work to do yet and I don't have any idea of when this will be finished...

AIM only will be compatible with Arx Libertatis 1.1.2, vanilla 1.21 bring several bugs, bad graphical renders in some new levels, fatal memory crashes with the new HD textures, and missing sountracks, new dialogues and sound effects, also might cause rare bugs with some elixir effects and deaths on enemies, elements added to the game are affected too.

If you want to enjoy the original and the full mod experience, you need to install Arx Libertatis in their lastest version (1.1.2 Rhaa Movis), it is recomended for run the mod without system problems and play it with all the mod features, thank you.

Pedro Ordaz.

Hello Pedro, I can only have the textures in HD??? The mod Arx Libertatis work but I had to get around the installation to maintain the original version in Italian, otherwise play in English. I do not know if I can use your WONDERFUL mods (Arena Miguel and prison goblins etc...), since my version of Arx is in Italian. PLEASEEEEE you can put the textures download in HD? Only folders with all the textures in HD then I put me hand in the game folder. Anyway, thank you very much for the great work you're doing with the mods, you're great!!! Sorry for my bad english i'm italian.

Hi cyberpc thanks for your kind of words, that is wonderful. The mod is only compatible with libertatis, the vanilla/original game is very inestable and buggy, missing dialogues, new remastered sounds and bad quality renders with some scaled models and the HD textures are a very big problem, they bring crashes and fatal memory errors. Well I'm mexican and my native language is spanish, the mod will be available in Spanish and english versions only, I don't speak others, the dialogues, descriptions, books and other stuff were designed for these translations. In this days I'm very busy, I go to study at university in the mornings and work as employee in afternoons, I'm recording my own music album in weekends, is very hard work the mod now but in march for sure I will release the full demo with some features and the HD textures, be patient :)

I await textures in HD. March is near :-) Thanks to exist ... can not imagine how I want these textures HD. I love Arx Fatalis is a one of the best RPG!
