Hi I've followed the instructions on how to install on windows 10 everything works fine but when i try to play my keyboard isn't being recognised and I am unable to zoom or rotate. It will only let me tab out and F4 does anyone know how to fix this issue?

Hi and welcome, check that User Account Control is off (Control Panel-> Administrative Tools) and also try loading a different mod and try original game (from in game mod selector menu). Let us know how you get on.

would be cool if it could be fixed but generally works fine if mod pack has been applied properly. Other more vital final mods would be the ability to add more spells (xslots modified existing spells, such as a dispel could be made into +1 health if possible? I would gladly pay £250 if it can be done or to decode more Op Codes via IDA). Please also join Dark Omen Reborn remake project ,as would be great to have your skills and knowledge to help Devast3d understand all the different original Dark Omen files.

Edit EngRel.exe ( English ) with a hex-editor and change the byte
at file offset 0x81100 from 06 to 0A

(edit: 81100h not 81110h )

dev note:
edits the IDirectInput_Keyboard->SetCooperativeLevel( hWnd, DISCL_NONEXCLUSIVE | DISCL_FOREGROUND ) call to the use "DISCL_BACKGROUND" flag so "the device can be acquired at any time, even when the associated window is not the active window."

note: not tested to see how this works with alt+tabbing etc.

@Olly
some things are easier than others :p

Hi guys thanks for your continued responses, I'm no good with PC's technically so I wouldn't know how to do that.

I made the Hex Edit to EngRel.exe at file offset 0x81100 and changed value from 06 to 0A. Tested a few games and everything works well, including Alt Tab in and out of the game (it's always best when Alt Tabbing, to first press space bar for the overhead map and then Esc to bring up the Quit menu, then Alt Tab while the game is paused).

I will include this fix in the latest mod pack and also updated it with Cuthalion's newest alternate Undead Manfred campaign.

(The download below is the modified EngRel.exe with keyboard fix applied for Psycho Ste but will add it to Mod Pack asap ).
Rename the existing EngRel.exe before pasting in this new one into C:\Program Files (x86)\Dark Omen\PRG_ENG

Many Thanks Aqrit!

Yes go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Dark Omen\PRG_ENG and rename the existing EngRel.exe to something like EngRelOrig.exe then paste in the new EngRel.exe into that same PRG_ENG folder and double click on it to start Dark Omen.

Mod pack now contains all mods and has keyboard fix applied to all EngRel.exe - Download it now!
