*a stranger wanders in from the shadows* Smiley

Hi guys, havent been active here in almost a decade but it brings a smile to my face to see olly active as ever.

How many people are still playing and what version/mods do I need to play? Any general news I should know also?

Wouldnt mind playing a couple of games but what really has my attention is the Wartbed and DAR projects, but I will create a separate thread for that. Also, since my last post, I am officially a dad now of a 2y/o boy.

Wow skaven in DO I have to give this a go. My copy of DO is in my folks place, so expect another thread or reply in a few weeks when I get my hands on it!!! So frustrating to not see this game available through gog.

Thanks for the help link olly. My current machine is linux so I will have fun trying to get this running under wine and post back if I need any help.

DMJC is the resident Dark Omen on Linux expert who kindly helped me and him test Wine but sadly it still doesn't work but thankfully DOR the Dark Omen Reborn remake project should be able to.

Interesting, hopefully I can help get DOR finished. What percentage is development currently at? 50%? 80%? Is there a multiplayer build I can mess around with in the mean time?

Im surprised DO doesnt work under wine as wine has a good reputation as being very robust. At the very least I will be another tester and report back my experience with wine.

Well met olly well met.

For DOR we got most of the mechanics implemented. Last large areas left untouched yet are magic (will be delayed after the demo launch) and AI (is the next thing we'll implement after finishing with current hot tasks, that should happen in couple of weeks).

Unfortunately, I didn't plan to implement multiplayer since it simply wouldn't fit into my time budget. I'm the only programmer in the project and Dark Omen turned out to be _far_ more complicated that I anticipated at first.

p.s. Also answered you in another thread.

Cheers devast, I gave you a pretty good reply in the main thread so wont repeat myself here. Just dont burn yourself out and wrap this thing up is my advice. As far as multiplayer is concerned we can work on that Wink Im really excited about the demo btw and hope you release the code for it too. Seeing how you implemented the WHFB combat rules into code form would be very enjoyable.


So, Ive been doing some experimenting with wine and I have made some decent progress but have become suck. I have rolled back the wine virtual box to run Windows 98 and get the following error from the terminal:

"002f:fixme:x11drv:X11DRV_desktop_SetCurrentMode Cannot change screen BPP from 32 to 16".
 This problem seems very similar to ollys guide step 4 "16bit colour Screen Resolution". Im 80% sure its the exact same problem actually but Im not sure how to fix it from the wine gui.

The wine virtualbox also throws up the error message "An error has occurred with the current Dark Omen installation, please re-install.", but the linux error is the root cause of the windows error message.

If I can fix this error I know its clear sailing from there so any advice would be appreciated.

As a side note, if I run the game under windows XP or higher I get the infamous black menu screen with sound/music.
