Hello D.O crew.
Just dug Dark Omen out of my old CD piles and remembered how awesome this game is!
Id love to give some one a match online, I have Hamachi and Gameranger installed so just walk me through it and i'm up for a game with anyone. I will probably be a bit crap but you have to start somewhere.

Also Ive tried logging into the Dark-Omen hamachi server but it always says its full...Something I'm missing?

Hi Smiley
We play mostly with mods.
So you will have to install them first.

I think this one is the most popular and familiar to new players.
See you soon on the battlefeld

hi there! i will copy paste what i told to a new player, hope it helps you.

hi there! let me guide ou a little about the mods and tournaments

First of all, you really will have to make a back up folder of the game, for example you right click Dark Omen folder and select copy, then you make a new folder and name it "dark backup" and inside it, you put the copied folder..

why? well all the mods, are installed in a easy way, but that way requires to overwrite files of the original game.. for example the folders normally modified are "grapchics" or "game data".. so, if you install a mod, and then you dont need it , or jst wanna original back again, you can goto  the back up  and copy al the folders there and back to Dark Omen folders and put them there.. overwritting the mod folders..

there are like 4 or 5 mods.. we playtournaments, normal matches, or a gameplay called "conquest" that is like a tournament, but players fight between them trying to conquist a hipotetic world map represented  by squares, that are atualised each time some player wins a battle and conquer one square to another player.

here you can see the conquest day sptember,. unfinished.. but that is a good  example

http://forum.dark-omen.org/empty-t1046.0.html;msg10630#new

so, the thing is that in the tournament and conquest day, or normal matches, players use differents mods, depending there tastes, or wich thethink is best "balanced"... ok i hope i was clear  and helped
