You can get most things here: http://terra-arcanum.com/downloads/
1. Patch the game to 22.214.171.124 (Official Patch) 2. Patch the game with the Unofficial Arcanum Patch v091225 3. Download "High Quality Townmaps" and install it. 4. Download Arcanum High Resolution Patch 1.1a and run highres.bat. 5. Download ArcanumXNoNoise.dat here then put it in the root folder of your game. Ex: C:\games\Arcanum 6. Download Arcanum universal level cap remover v0.0.1 and run arcanum50patch.exe.
That's basically it. You can also try A:WIP (Arcanum: Work in progress) if you want additional stuff in the main game. But I haven't tried it. However, it is not compatible with the UAP!
Arcanum High resolution Patch lets you choose any resolution. You can for example run the game in 1920x1200! It also has an additional hud you can use by pressing F10 in game and some bigger fonts which is useful for high resolutions.
ArcanumXNoNoise removes the extremely annoying looping sound that certain spells had (Agility of Fire etc.).
Level cap remover lets you decide a new level cap (Default is 50 and maximum is 127).
Unnofficial Patch fixes tons of bugs and restores some content. Patch notes located at http://koti.mbnet.fi/ton_hur/files/Arcanum/UAP%20Readme/uap.html
YOU NEED TO START A NEW GAME AFTER THIS! DON'T TRY AND LOAD AN OLD GAME!
