Nevermind. (2014-10-26 16:54) Raxor17
I figured it out.
Where's the download link? (2014-10-26 16:39) Raxor17
I can't find it.
Fix for Enharioth (2013-02-03 05:42) Thuldar
Enharioth, in the Graphics tab uncheck keep aspect ration. This will fix the sound/speed issues you are having. I was having this problem on a lot of my games. But this fix work wonders!
It works, but... (2007-05-21 23:05) Enharioth
after several attempts, Arena runs in an acceptable way.

I'm using the Dfend front-end, with 20'000 cycles and a dynamic cpu core.

The problem is that music doesn't work well, it's not continuous, sometimes fully stopped but few seconds.

How can I set up the Sound Properties to make music works good? thanx!

p.s. sorry for my errors of grammar, but I come from Italy :P
Arena Installation Problem (2007-04-09 15:21) Lord Voldemort
On the installation instructions (http://www.elderscrolls.com/tenth_anniv/Arena106%20Setup.pdf),
Eevrything works until I get to step 11, and it opens it's new window, there's no prompt that starts. A window that looks like this (http://i132.photobucket.com/albums/q34/mew159/DOGWindow.png)
starts up.
problems with black screen on startup (2006-03-28 17:51) TempeTerra
DK, I had the same problem running on DosBox 0.63 on Win2K. By accident I discovered that how you mount the directory seems to make a difference. First, in DosBox I was typing "mount c e:\arena" (because that's where I installed it to), but I was getting the black screen problem you describe. The next time I ran it I typed "mount e e:\", then changed to e drive, "cd arena" then "arena" which works for some reason. My suggestion: don't mount the arena directory directly, mount the drive it's on and CD to where you want to be. Hope that helps. Sorry if that's hard to read, what I wouldn't give for some white space...
oh, and full detail (2004-10-27 08:59) Mac
Forgot to mention that I'm running the game at full detail level. (Sorry for the poor formatting above, didn't realize whitespace would be removed)
Runs nicely (2004-10-27 08:58) Mac
Running 0.62
Output - opengl (have also used ddraw, but it dies if the screen gets pulled away -- failing of DirectDraw API from Microsoft)
CPU - dynamic
Cycles - 30,000
Frameskip - 0
Scaler - normal2x

These settings hover my CPU usage around 93% while running the game. The machine in question is a Pentium 4 3.06 GHz. I can't help but think that setting cycles to 150,000 (5X higher than my settings) would swamp any machine available... Motion and action are fluid, at least as fluid as any machine I actually ran the game on when it came out...

This runs quite smoothly for me. The main things I've found for accelerating _all_ games under DOSbox, but especially 3D games, is to make sure you are NOT using "surface" as your output. Any of the other outputs (overlay, opengl, etc) will provide a factor of 2 speed increase. Similarly, since 0.62 has improved dynamic cpu support, that appears to grant another 2X speed increase.

Very cool, guys!
and.. (2004-08-22 17:50) HeX
I also forgot to mention that lowering the Detail setting in the game will GREATLY improve the speed and sluggish movements. I have it set to a quarter of the Detail bar which is just perfect.
