Cool, can't wait to try it out and just making a Dark Omen game install youtube video with Mods install for Win8.1. Then I can upgrade to Win10 and test 3d mode and create another install guide.

Thanks

dgvoodoo 2.45 is out and runs Dark Omen very well...
( with the windowed mode hack in OP )

Amazing! Full 3d mode now works on my bro's pc that could only play in CPU mode since it has a cheap NVidia GT 630 graphics card (not better GTX). However, xslots appears to not be picked up so my Skaven are invisible sprites with Morgan's banner. I even tried your theory of renaming your ddraw.dll to doMod.dll in the Skaven PRG_ENG folder so it wouldn't conflict with the Voodoo new ddraw.dll in the main PRG_ENG but no good. (and even then renamed the Voodoo ddraw.dll to doMod.dll in the main PRG_ENG folder as a further test, that does also do 3d water on trading post but doesn't load the new sprites unfortunately).

Trace no xslots being loaded

Original plays great though as now in full 3d Mode. Many Thanks

Copy and paste the Voodoo MS D3DImm.dll and DDraw.dll into your Dark Omen PRG_ENG folder (it will overwrite our ddraw.dll for xslots)

the conflict between my proxy dll and dgvoodoo2's replacement ddraw.dll was/is expected because...
my proxy dll explicitly loads the ddraw.dll from the system32 folder...
https://github.com/aqrit/Dark-Omen-Mod-Selector/blob/master/src/ddraw_proxy.cpp#L70
This can be solved with a quick hex-edit or a recompile.

Warning: Do NOT overwrite anything in the system32 folder...

Sounds good thanks but could you upload the new darkpatch.dll or detail the quick Hex-edit please.  I tried to recompile (Visual Studio Ultimate 2010) but it complained about a missing import_script.cpp during the build so I copied it from a previous download of Ghabry's code and it compiled. However, it doesn't work on Win8 as I think it is missing Ghabry's updated Win 8 fix or I messed it up.

sorry, I missed or forgot this post.

one needs to NOP the strcat so
goto offset 0x4EC
and replace
4F 8A 47 01 47 84 C0 75 F8 BE 5C
with
90 90 90 90 90 90 90 90 90 BE 5D

*not tested
**this little edit will only work out if my dll is not named ddraw.dll

Now, GameRanger will probably have the exact same problem with dgvoodoo's ddraw.dll that it has with my ddraw.dll, and it could be solved the same way:
rename dgvoodoo's ddraw.dll then go into my dll and hex-edit my dll's "ddraw.dll" to w/e dgvoodoo's dlls is re-named to ( ddgv2.dll ? )

missing import_script.cpp
much sure you are doing a "release" build... IIRC, this file should not be compiled at all; it is included in Ghabry's dll.

Hi Aqrit,

I also missed you reply until now so thanks for the suggestion which did fix the Voodoo ddraw.dll issue working with GameRanger (by renaming it to ddgv2.dll and altering your ddraw.dll to domod.dll & to call ddgv2.dll). It can also now play xslots Skaven Single player in 3D on cheap graphics card that were unable to play in 3d before, so many thanks for that but sadly it still doesn't allow xslots.txt/ddmod.dll/ddraw.dll to be picked up when playing via GameRanger so no Dark Elves v Skaven multiplayer yet.

I didn't have luck trying to make 3d work with "Intel(R) HD Graphics 520"
It seems to work only in windowed mode, but it's a very small window and I don't like it at all
Do I have any chance?

Not until we fix our mod tool to work again with Voodoo ddraw.dll like it used to.

Thanks to Ghabry combining Aqrit's ddraw.dll code into darkpatch.dll we can now try using dgvoodoo's ddraw.dll again, to play Dark Omen in full 3d mode using the emulated Direct X. (If you only have a low end graphics card that is unable to play 3d mode already).

I've quickly tested dgvoodoo's 2.54 and 2.45 with the usual settings and have it partially working, so will continue testing and post any successful Voodoo settings.

Copy and paste the dgVoodooSetup.exe, MS D3DImm.dll and DDraw.dll into your Dark Omen PRG_ENG folder

Rob also found that Dark Omen works well in 3d mode in "pcem" a pc emulator
