Hey Olly

I'm still here, ready to work on btb files
I though the better way to do this:

1) You send me the "original" .bmp file
2) You send me a "modified" .bmp file with indication about where to put things (like a simple colored "circle" on the image: green circle is a "tree", red circle is a "big rock" and so on...)
3) If needed, you send me the sprites too (if the object to be put is not a "standard" object but a new object not included in original Dark Omen)

With these three things, I can try to copy a .prj file from a similar dimension map, add and remove objects in the prj file and then edit a btb.xml file to create the correct boundaries for all object on the map

I need only some explanation about the region chunks in BTB file that I didn't understand completely

What... there ya go!

Apologies about that last one... think I found my issue. Was checking the MODS folders and there are no army lists in there so that kinda explains the above issue hahaha....

Man you guys made this simple! Just a bit of human error here and there oops!

Thanks mate... not sure if my message sent to you. Can't see it in the Outbox so appears not.

Anyway, thanks again for your help.

I've managed to get it working now, no screen flickering except I just need to confirm I'm doing the MOD process the right way.

1) Start Dark Omen from EngRel.exe in MOD replaced PRG_ENG folder
2) Select MODS
3) Select the MOD and click LOAD
4) Quit Dark Omen
5) Start Dark Omen again as per Step 1

It seems the MOD is still selected at Step 5 if I check MODS again, however if I go to Army list I can't see the new slots or units.

I tried this as well to add further diagnosis and a comparison:

ORIGINAL GAME
1) Started Dark Omen, selected Original Game and Load MOD
2) Checked Multiplayer, Edit Army and there are a few default armies listed

CUSTOM MODS
1) Started Dark Omen, selected Dark Omen 2 or Dark Omen Expanded and Load MOD
2) Checked Multiplayer, Edit Army and there are no army lists available


Once again, thanks for your hard work over the years.... amazing effort!

Thank you... I had an account here from a long, long time ago as well haha, but couldn't retrieve the password so had to create a new account.

It's definitely installed as English version of the game but yeh I'll see if I can find my old disc instead of using cracked files etc...

If the mod pack doesn't work then the screen flickering fix won't work either. So find yourself an English version of the CD that will install a PRG_ENG folder.

Hi and welcome, if you don't have a PRG_ENG folder then you probably don't have an English version of the Dark Omen CD. (Check your messages)

Just had to reinstall Dark Omen and been trying to get it set up and running properly however half my screen is flickering (the left hand side).

I assume it might be a refresh rate problem judging from past experience however I can't change my refresh rate, it's set as 60 or 65.

Damn, real disappointed because I'm so keen to play again, it's been about 3-4 years since I last played.

Just to add a further note, I tried to manually add the Dark Omen Expanded mod and it seems to have worked correctly. I can access the new armies in the book and game etc...

I assume I just can't add Dark Omen 2 manually because of the expanded slots however any idea if it's possible?

Thank you once again!
