    Hello friends,

    Here are the answers to some questions that you may have now that the time to master the Arcane arts is upon us.

    Q1: What is Warlock: Master of the Arcane?
    A1: Warlock: Master of the Arcane is a new turned-based strategy game set in the fantastical world of Ardania, popularized in Majesty franchise. Warlock: Master of the Arcane invites players to take on the role of the Great Mage and build a powerful magical empire, giving mightly mages the ability to control armies and wield magic to wage war against another, as they compete with other wizards for the title of Warlock.

    Q2: When is Warlock: Master of the Arcane released?
    A2: It is released the 8th of May 2012

    Q3: How do I buy Warlock: Master of the Arcane?
    A3: You can find links to our retailers here!

    Q4: Is there a demo I can try?
    A4: Yes, there is a demo available through steam. We recommend you try the demo first to make sure the game runs properly on your machine before purchasing it.

    Q5: I have purchased and started the game... What do I do now? How do I make things perish in flames?
    A5: You can always be that guy that reads the manual. It can be downloaded here!
    There is also a beginners guide in PDF format.

    Q6: I purchased the game but it won't run properly!
    A6: Make sure your computer meets the system requirements (see below) and post your issues in the technical support forums.

    Q7: I can't see the technical support forums!
    A7: You should register the game using the CD-key or, in some cases, the special forum key provided by your specific retailer or steam. If you purchased the game through another retailer you can still register your CD-key with steam and you should be able to retrieve the key from there.

    Q8: I can't register my Warlock: Master of the Arcane CD-key here at the forums!
    A8: Are you using the correct key? In some cases a separate key for the forum is provided. See A7 above.

    A9: They are listed at the very bottom of this post.

    A11: Yeah, here is one at least.

    Q12: Does the game run with Windows XP?
    A12: Windows XP is not supported and we can not guarantee it working. There are however many players using said OS and got it working so check the forums for help if you experience problems.

    I have a Geforce 9800 GT. The demo seemed to run OK. Am I safe for the full version? The rest of the system is an Intel 2.4 Gb Quad-core with 4 GB RAM running 32-bit Vista.

    Sounds like you meet the system requirements and if the demo runs fine I can't see why it wouldn't.

    This issue happened when I set up streaming of the game through xsplit once upon a time. It only happened when I captured the game and disappeared when I captured the screen instead. I honestly have no idea what that means, but someone else might? Anyway, I would start by making sure your directx and graphic drivers are up to date.

    Hey guys,

    Did you manage to solve the issue? I just bought the game and everything seems to work except for the black square as mouse cursor. I downloaded the demo before I bought and there was no problem in the demo. I am currently running Vista.

    Thanks

    Start by updating your video driver. If that doesn't help post full details in the Support forum.
    Men fear thought as they fear nothing else on earth -- more than ruin -- more even than death .... Thought is subversive and revolutionary, destructive and terrible, thought is merciless to privilege, established institutions, and comfortable habit. Thought looks into the pit of hell and is not afraid. Thought is great and swift and free, the light of the world, and the chief glory of man. Bertrand Russell
