Dark Omen runs fine on both Windows 32bit & 64bit XP/Vista/Win7/8/10 if you follow this guide, so please don't post that it doesn't work for you because it will, hehe ->

YouTube Help Fix Guide 2020
https://youtu.be/_7fiMvM1Tpo


1) You must run setup.exe (not autorun) from an English/UK Version of a Dark Omen CD and install English language to C:\Program Files (x86)\  and select Maximum Full installation & Direct X 5.

2) Locate your Dark Omen folder, such as  C:\Program Files\Dark Omen or C:\Program Files (x86)\Dark Omen and rename the PRG_ENG folder to PRG_ENGOrig

3) Copy the Movies folder from your Dark Omen Cd and paste into your newly installed Dark Omen folder.

4) Download this mod pack and copy paste/extract its 3 new folders (armytmp,Mods,PRG_ENG) to your Dark Omen folder. Remember to restart the game each time you select a different mod.

5) Start the game by double clicking on the new EngRel.exe inside the new PRG_ENG folder and go straight to Dark Omen's in game options and Turn on 3D and coloured cursors, thanks to Dege's fix. To make Dark Omen look even better download his dgVoodoo software and paste the dgVoodoo control panel also into new PRG_ENG folder (it will have to be excluded from your antivirus) and use the following settings.

Fixes ->

If Dark Omen still doesn't work it means that you are not using a UK version of Dark Omen or haven't followed the guide above, or the game hasn't installed the correct registry settings because User Account Control (UAC) is turned on, causing Dark Omen to install into the VirtualStore registry. So install the Mod Pack Registry settings depending on your version of Windows, by double clicking on them. DO_VirtualStore 64bit.reg and DO_Windows 64bit Registry Fix.reg

Install the registry fixes if Dark Omen looks like the picture below and check your Antivirus isn't quarantining/preventing any of the files from running in the new PRG_ENG folder C:\Program Files (x86)\Dark Omen\PRG_ENG

Check your Registry Settings look like these -> Start -> Regedit
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Electronic Arts

or in the VirtualStore
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\VirtualStore\MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Electronic Arts]

* DO VirtualStoreRegistry.jpg (338.26 KB. 1816x727 - viewed 291 times.)


Control Panel -> User Accounts -> Turn off User Account Control (UAC) and reboot windows.

Dark Omen Mod Pack offers the Select Mod option on the in-game menu and remember to restart the game after switching mods. There are many new campaigns available to play as different races and also multiplayer mods such as the balanced Fair Omen mod. Our Dark Omen2 BETA mod currently incorporates all of our latest new stuff, so is the perfect template to copy and rename for any new Mods, as it contains more Wood Elves, High Elves, Dwarves, Skaven and Dark Elves available in multiplayer and single player campaigns on 24 new maps.

FIXES:

1) ONLY EVER USE A UK ENGLISH VERSION DARK OMEN CD.
2) Turn off User Account Control in Control Panel otherwise you will have to install the Mod Pack Registry settings depending on your version of Windows, by double clicking on them. DO_VirtualStore 64bit.reg and DO_Windows 64bit Registry Fix.reg and check your Antivirus isn't quarantining/preventing any of the files from running in the new PRG_ENG
3) If you find the Game won't install on Win 10 =  When running the Setup.exe you will have to do following:
a) Open your Task Manager
b) Goto Detailed View
c) Right Click the Setup.exe process
d) Click Analyze Waiting list (My Windows ain't English, but I guess that should be the name)
e) You will see a box with Setup.exe and some other processes below it, mark the processor below it and select "Terminate/close App, or whatever it says in English)
f) Do this again and again, until there are no more processes that are in the queue before the Setup.exe and your Installation will begin.

4) If you receive error message "The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000022)" then enable Direct Play
    by going to Control Panel ->  Programs and Features -> Add/Remove Windows Features -> Legacy Components and Tick  DirectPlay
