you dont need to kill fanatics, you need to avoid them :-)

best way is to use your fastest/smallest in heads regiment. for example treeman or mage or small squad of cavalry. you need to "provoke" fanatics and then run back.


well if you unable to "kite" them that way there is really no way to stop them. perhaps using "wide" formation could decrease loses (but will increase possibility of hitting by fanatics). or maybe thats wrong, guess that fanatics go completely random so no formation can save you.


overall if you can deal with them maybe its a good idea to turn your army back and "charge" with every1, so you will be out of range of most fanatics and enemy less likely will charge himself (or suffer some loses from own fanatics)

I always try to avoid them when I know the goblins release the fanatics, but with this great Dark Omen expanded it seems almost every goblin regiment has fanatics with them, so often they take me by suprise when I charge them.

But back to my first question, is there any detailed information about the new regiments that you control?

it reemplaces, as ALL mods, the original files, so make a back of GAMEDATA, PRG, and GRAPCHIS folders , or the entire DO folder Tongue Cheesy

Hi Welcome, it's a Great Time to Join ->

http://forum.dark-omen.org/introduction/great-time-to-join-t696.0.html

Dark Omen Expanded 2 is compressed into a .RAR file so you will need to download WinRar to open it.

There's a Tournament this evening if you want to play.

I followed the installation instructions, but I guess I got it wrong, there is no new campaign, just the old one with some units changed, the units have changed sprites but same names...I did it wrong??

thanks for your hard work!!

Hi guys, I played Dark Omen when I was a teen 14 years ago, now nostalgia took me and I found a version for XP and also found this DOE2 thing which interested me a lot.

I copied the files into /gamedata and /graphics, new units with their abilities and sprites do appear (first mission), but the annoying thing is all names are taken from the classic games like I have in my army:

-GB Cavalry
-GB Infantry  even though it's clear those are some dwarves with pistols, but no Schepke guys.
-GB Crossbowmen  though those are kind of shortbowmen like Goblin Archers were of old.
-GB Cannon - though it may as well be so except for 2 cannoniers instead of 3.

On second mission I got a Cavalry Unit which is called 'Carlson Cavalry' though it looks different.

Could you help me to make the game display all the new names instead of old ones? Thank you.

Probably it's impossible. But it's really annoying to see all those 'Night Goblin Archers' on the battlefield even though there are some Evil-Heads and Spiders firing MY SWORD Smiley
