Just had to reinstall Dark Omen and been trying to get it set up and running properly however half my screen is flickering (the left hand side).

I assume it might be a refresh rate problem judging from past experience however I can't change my refresh rate, it's set as 60 or 65.

Damn, real disappointed because I'm so keen to play again, it's been about 3-4 years since I last played.

If the mod pack doesn't work then the screen flickering fix won't work either. So find yourself an English version of the CD that will install a PRG_ENG folder.

Thanks mate... not sure if my message sent to you. Can't see it in the Outbox so appears not.

Anyway, thanks again for your help.

I've managed to get it working now, no screen flickering except I just need to confirm I'm doing the MOD process the right way.

1) Start Dark Omen from EngRel.exe in MOD replaced PRG_ENG folder
2) Select MODS
3) Select the MOD and click LOAD
4) Quit Dark Omen
5) Start Dark Omen again as per Step 1

It seems the MOD is still selected at Step 5 if I check MODS again, however if I go to Army list I can't see the new slots or units.

I tried this as well to add further diagnosis and a comparison:

ORIGINAL GAME
1) Started Dark Omen, selected Original Game and Load MOD
2) Checked Multiplayer, Edit Army and there are a few default armies listed

CUSTOM MODS
1) Started Dark Omen, selected Dark Omen 2 or Dark Omen Expanded and Load MOD
2) Checked Multiplayer, Edit Army and there are no army lists available


Once again, thanks for your hard work over the years.... amazing effort!

What... there ya go!

Apologies about that last one... think I found my issue. Was checking the MODS folders and there are no army lists in there so that kinda explains the above issue hahaha....

Man you guys made this simple! Just a bit of human error here and there oops!
