Arx Libertatis is an open source, cross-platform port and improved version of Arx Fatalis based on the publicly released source code.

The goals of Arx Libertatis are to

  • Update the Arx Fatalis source code to support modern systems
  • Improve portability of the game
  • Provide ports and on-going support in source for modern systems
  • Eliminate bugs or limitations of the original
  • Improve basic functionality to bring the engine on-par with similar modern games
  • Provide for further improvements and customizations to be made to the game by the community

For a complete list of features, see the changelog

As of version 1.0, Arx Libertatis allows you to play Arx Fatalis under Windows, Linux and FreeBSD - provided you own a copy of the original Arx Fatalis. The source can also be compiled for Mac OS X, but only unofficial Mac binaries are available.

This is another small hotfix, this time to fix a crash when hovering over map markers after the window size or resolution has changed. See the full changelog for more details to read this same change summary again. We encourage all users of Arx Libertatis 1.1.1 to upgrade to 1.1.2 whenever they feel like it.

Updated Windows, Linux and FreeBSD binaries and packages are available.

Yup, this release is really only one small fix. We have been working on bigger changes, and are getting closer to having fully hardware-accelerated rendering and per-pixel lighting, but did not want to delay this fix until those changes are ready for release.

It didn't work for me, just bought and downloaded Arx Fatalis from steam, downloaded this right away. I have the 64bit with windows 10 64bit OS. The game launches, then some 'ad' for the game displays partially in the upper right corner, I hit esc or space and it goes to a zoomed in picture of an alien holding a staff i think and doesn't do anything beyond that. I tried deleting/reinstalling, didn't work.

This is what worked for me.

Navigate to C:\Users\(username)\Saved Games\Arx Libertatis and find the file named 'cfg' or 'cfg.ini'. Right click and edit, or open in notepad.

Under [video] there will be 'resolution="auto"', change 'auto' to whatever your resolution is, for example I use 'resolution="1920x1080"'.

I also changed the 'size' setting under '[window]' to 1920x1080 (it was set to 640x480) but I don't know if that's necessary, it's probably just for playing windowed.

I had the exact same problem you were having but after making these changes the game runs fine so far.

Hi guys, this project will release a next version later? I say it cause I'm making a mod with high definition/res textures (512 and 1024) and is essential to me if you put again video options for level detail/quality/size of textures and a new brightness option. Cause for this mod is very important the lighting role, now levels are darker and I was testing in three different computers, with the same values, the appearance of the lighting in each one varies a lot, one of those computers looks completely dark with default settings, taking into account that each PC is different, thank you
