Hi folks,

Ive been trying for the last 4 hours to get dark omen to work and im failing miserably.
Im getting the error 0xc000142 after adding in the files from the how to guide (it worked before but with the flickering issue).

I think its because i dont have an english version of the game but i just cant find one online (my googlefu is also failing me and ive looked for a few hours now).

I'm turning to the experts, could someone help? Ive been wanting to start playing this game for a few months now and finally got round to trying.

Hi and welcome,

as you say, you need an English UK version of the CD. I am away in Italy/Sicily for a week but will look when I return.

Never give up!  Hex edited my file as per http://forum.dark-omen.org/help-section/windows-10-flickering-screen-t1323.0.html

No more flicker, full screen no issues thanks everyone on here! for the Great advice
---------------------


gave up again game plasy fine but flickers/double images Smiley  I'm using my own exe with your other files Smiley  and the changes below.  Guess I need to find a british game Smiley

-------------


Ok got it going again, removed the run in 640x480, removed run as admin, and compatibility mode from XP to win7.  works consistently now.   Not sure I can alt-tab yet  and it flickers  but I'm getting somewhere Smiley  and I can play.

640x480 mode is crashing because the Gefoce overlay thing which I disabled now.  I guess the alt-tab is crashing it and the fix is not working but I just won't alt tab.


-------- Wink

re-edit a poop only worked once Smiley  shouldn't of closed it to come post here Smiley


---------------

Holly heck I just fixed it by using a mix of my original install files and part of yours.  I'm using my own exe but your mod pack... crazy.




---------------------

Is there a way to make other CD versions work?  I have a French Canadian CD and I've tried everyting.  Is there a place to buy a UK cd?

I got to a point where I either get that error (using the mod pack) or I get a black screen, some audio and the game minimizes.  Maximizing it yields a bit more audio and another minimize.  CPU usage by the exe is about 40% so its doing "something Smiley"

Thanks for the info Gotrek, i tried the hex editing but got very lost very quickly. Ill see if Olly can help before i go down that route again. Im hoping having an english version solves all the problems otherwise my quest continues.

Helpful PM's sent you all and I can always remote in using Teamviewer for further assistance. Although I will only be following each step of the Help Fix guide.
