It is the distant future. Humanity have never dreamt of surviving for so long. The few hundred human beings have managed to construct Arcan Central, and hide from the outer world. From the many horrors they had to suffer. Somehow, Earth had become a barren wasteland, but no one seems to remember why did that happen. Have wars scorched our planet? Was it some kind of accident that destroyed almost any lifeform on our homeworld? The council means everything. They are the protection, the safety... they live to serve humanity. To prevent any of the council members from gaining too much power, a Controller is elected from the inhabitants. This Controller must command the Droid army, created by the Council. Arcan is a unique sci-fi turn-based strategy game, with significant RPG elements. All characters on a map have the ability to evolve, and even combine their abilities with other units. So, despite the relatively small amount of unit types, it is impossible to fight the same battle twice

Meridian: New World is a single player sci-fi real-time strategy game, with a focus on storytelling. Play as Daniel Hanson, commander of the first expedition to planet Meridian and uncover the dark secrets it holds!

Meridian: New World offers countless options to devise your own strategy, including various equipment options for your units and special abilities for you to rely upon.

Use your abilities anywhere on the battlefield and turn the tide of battle by weakening the enemy troops. Alternatively take the covert approach and sabotage the enemy power supply to shut down their production. You can rely entirely on researching superior weapons or special abilities. Or you can risk building a large economy, constructing a massive army from your enormous resources. The strategy you use and how many troops you sacrifice to reach your goal will influence the attitude of your crew towards you.

  • Gain XP during battle and upgrade your commander profile with special combat abilities
  • Get to know the people on board your ship: by talking to them, you influence the crew's behavior
  • The level editor and scripting tool used to build the campaign will be available upon release
  • Never run out of maps with the in-game custom map downloader and official levels made available frequently after the game's release

Make sure you have installed OpenAL properly when installing Arcan, that's all my guess for now.

A bit more words related to Vista troubleshooting..

the game starts normally, but when selected "new game" -> "campaign",
I see the following bug message:
"Characters are too large or too many. Unable to create font texture."

I thought the problem could be in that I'm using japanese keyboard layout instead of english one, but removing japanese keyboard layout from system didn't solve the problem. :(

I run the game on the laptop, under Vista Home Premium with 2Gb RAM and ATI Radeon 3450 as video.

Can anyone figure out what's the problem?

I've just uploaded a new patch for this game. If you run Arcan_Eng.exe with the latest patch (1.6.1.7), then the game must work properly now.

Ahem..
As I can see, patch you uploaded has been deleted and is no longer available. Could you please upload it again?
(or, maybe, link to other place it's located)

I re-uploaded it, because for some reason, it never got authorized. It should appear in a matter of hours.
