Hi there,

it seems that I have got another issue with Dark Omen on Windows 8.1....
Been a fan from the first release. I do have the original CD (in french, but installed it in english, langage chosen among german, french and english).
I have installed the game (program Files (x86)\Dark Omen), put the mod pack in the game folder.

The game launches, there is no flickering in the video, perfect so far, but when I left-click to get through the video and access to the menus, the screen freezes. I can hear the music played when you are in the main menu of the game, but the screen is frozen at the moment of the introduction video when I left-clicked on the mouse...

Is there a way to debug this ? I'd really like to play this game again.

Thanks !

Have u tried importing the registry fix

http://forum.dark-omen.org/help-section/ultimate-dark-omen-xpvistawin7win81win10-game-fixes-t111.0.html

and do you start the game by double clicking on the new EngRel.exe inside the new PRG_ENG folder you extracted and copied from the latest Mods download ->

And set compatibility mode on EngRel.exe to Run As Adminstrator, with 16bit Colour 640x480

If none of that works try pressing keybaord Esc - Escape instead of left mouse click.
