Hi,
been playing Olly's Mod Pack with dgVoodoo2.
Noticed that Spellsinger's spells (using Ice Magic) do not turn enemy sprites to ice on successful attacks. The damage is dealt and enemy dies, so it is not a show stopper. But annoying none the less.
Does anyone have an idea why this happens and can it be fixed?

Can it be seen in this recent vid?

Yeah, I think, the same. If you remember in original DO Blizzard or Ice Blast would freeze killed units first: they turn blue and explode a second later. This does not happen now, though damage is still done and damage spells do kill.

4:02 in the vid shows the ice shards blowing up 2 skeleton warriors but I don' see them turn blue. Have you set particle to max in the game options, as I set to medium as too many effects becomes distracting?

Mine was medium, too. Let me check maximum this night and see if this is the case.
However, I also noticed that corpses do not dissolve in my campaign. It has been a while since I played but I thought they would disappear after a while during battles. Does not happen to me now. Let me confirm that one, but it may be an issue of the same origin.

Corpses disappear in old CPU to save resources. However, 3d mode leaves them on the battlefield. Similar enhancements in 3d mode, is having transparent water instead of flat 2d texture in CPU and better looking portrait heads and higher resolutions. Makes Dark Omen look better than ever before.

Yeah, so, ice magic does not freeze enemies even in maximum particle settings. Not sure what is wrong.

Kind of off topic but damn!! I've literally never seen multi player dark omen so thanks for the video.

This looks epic! Do you guys play multiplayer very often? Tournaments?

Is there a way to watch multiplayer games as others play? that would be amazing

Lastly, how do you zoom so far out on the map?? higher screen res using the voodoo wrapper or?

Yep there's still a few active players and sometimes enough for a tournament like in October (see tournament posts that contain the vids and members stream live).

Join our Discord chat and yes it's the Mod pack Engrel.exe that contains the camera zoom and other fixes along with dgvoodoo2 code embedded to allow it to run on Win10/11. Then downloading and running dgvoodoo2 control panel allows even higher screen resolutions and graphics.
