Play Arcanum on Windows 10 (x64) without lags!

Since the good old Arcanum from Troika Games doesn’t run very smoothly and flawlessly on all Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10 computers, you will need to fix that „gibberish“ or lagging gameplay.

Fortunately, this is done very quick!

  1. Delete the old ddraw.dll file which might be located in your game directory. This should only be the case if you have purchased Arcanum from
  2. Create a new shortcut from the Arcanum.exe which is located in the game directory. Add the commands -nod3d and -doublebuffer or -triplebuffer to the target (like in the attachement).
  3. Download the new DirectDraw API from and extract the files ddraw.dll, libwine.dll and wine3d.dll from the archive in your Arcanum game directory.
  4. And that’s it, you’re done! Have fun with Arcanum.
