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.

Screenshot: Stylish rendering with Steam
Stylish rendering with Steam

Updated Windows and Linux binaries and packages are available.

One notable fix is for the "Crisp" Alpha Cutout Anti-Aliasing setting introduce in 1.2 which has been causing performance issues when near fogs or smoke for some players while resulting in crashes for Windows users with Intel graphics. In this release the performance issues have been fixed and the setting has been disabled for OpenGL drivers experiencing crashes.

Linux Steam users with Mesa graphics drivers may have noticed textures being replaced with solid colors once the Steam overlay loads. We have added a workaround to no longer promise the graphics drivers that we are good API-respecting citizens if we detect the Steam overlay so that its naughtyness can go unseen again.

Virus warnings here as well from Firefox, and Avast.

I would say it's safe. Here are some links that may help shed some light, and the mod creator has commented:

Gog.com

Steamcommunity.com

Installed. I let Avast quarantine files then easily restored and added exceptions. No issues here so far.

I have played Arx Libertatis many times, but now Windows Defender says that it is a Trojan and uninstalls it immediately. wtf

So the latest download 1.2 from ars fatalis from the homepage got several warnings from firefox that it is infected with a virus. The Zip-File got 19 warnings from virustotal.

19 warnings from virustotal implies that it is almost certainly malicious.

i'm sorry, i may of have you confused, i should of explained what touching grass is and what contributing to society is, because as someone who both plays this game way too much and hangs around forums insulting anyone who has a problem, you clearly don't do either so allow me to explain, touching grass just means to get cho *** outside and contributing to society is the opposite of what you doin right now. good day hope you find reason

well my dude with this random wall of text and quick reply you betrayed yourself as someone who has never touched real grass with your hands (and the woman also lmao) instead of grass letters on your keyboard with your fingers...

so now you should to touch and grab that keyboard to your hands... and start banging with that keyboard to your head as a therapy for someone who doesn't know how to download a simple .rar file...

well of course but chrome physically wasn't letting me download it, managed to force download it and get the again and it works fine now, stories pretty lame and the community are some of the most unhelpful people i've met, if you want a good game where your character "dies" at the start just play fallout: new vegas 8.1/10

note: im joking hun games ok, just don't know why you decided to call people that needed help with a file being picked up as a viruses "r*tards" it honestly doesnt help anyone, if you feel that way just keep to yourself, looking at your other comments you too seemed to need help and we seem to have simular interests in games just im not going around calling people slurs for getting things wrong, hope we can be cool, <3

A lot of virus scanners give false positives, as is the case here. Sevo was rude about it, but right in that you shouldn't blindly trust that a mod that's been around for years and has several pages of comments without a single mention of issues is suddenly going to fill your PC with viruses because of a reading from a (probably cheap or free) virus scanner.

No, the right and common sense thing to do when something gives you 19 alerts in Virus Total is to not trust it, especially if you don't know how to analyze it. This is not just one antivirus solution alerting you here. This is absolutely abnormal considering how previous versions don't trigger such alerts, nor do other game installers, nor do other mods/engine source ports for other games like OpenMW.
