@Jaroslav has offered great suggestion. I'm trying to complete Dark Omen for the first time (I'm on the "Axebite Pass" now). After setting up the dgVoodoo once more and bumping the resolution to 1280x1080 it looks great.

Stay safe everybody!

I couldn't find Dark Omen logo of a reasonable quality, so I decided to use my graphic skills to cut out the one from the original box and make some variants. Cropping is not perfect, but well, it is what it is. Posting it here, because it seems like the most appropriate place. Link:

Here are the previews:

and here is SoTHR logo as a bonus Cheesy

Yup, I have been lookig up the Polish magazines of the late 90's on the net to read the reviews of some of my favorite games and have stumbled upon several of the articles posted here.

PS: Starting with second half of your reply #9, these are actually Slovak magazines, not Polish  Grin

PS2: There are some great renders of the models used for SoTHR sprites though!

Awesome finds!

Guess I shouldn't hold my breath for the extra mission discs  Cry

Slightly off-topic:
Skimming through the Polish gaming magazines from the 90's, I've learned that both SoTHR and DO were quite big in my country, especialy among the fans of strategy games and RPG's (1st edition of Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay was one of the first RPG systems to make it's way to Poland and as far as I know, it's still the most popular one as of 2019).

You're the man
With our without the guide regardless
Thanks Evgen, beating the SoTHR was great, but seeing the Dark Omen Reborn project progress is even better. Thank you and everybody on DO Reborn team for your work. It's great to see it getting closer to being a 100% faithful DO recreation with each posted update.

Thanks for the warm welcome Cheesy
I'm most certainly interested in the multiplayer portion of Dark Omen. Unfortunately I won't have much time in the next few weeks, but I should be on GameRanger from the beginning of August.

Hello everybody,

I've been lurking the forum for a while, and now I've finally registered!
I'm a Warhammer fan, especialy interested in the 4-5th edition era due to pure 90's awesomness present in the armybooks and novels of that time (and also quite a bit of nostalgia).
My introduction to the Old World (and fantasy in general) was watching my father play Shadow of the Horned Rat somewhere around 1998. Mark Gibbons's Orc depictions in SoTHR bestiary were so good, that first time I saw Lord of The Rings: Fellowship of The Ring I was a little disappointed the Orcs looked nothing like the Warhammer ones  Grin In the meantime we've also got Dark Omen, which was even prettier than the SoTHR, packed with cool Undead legions planing to conquer the world, and with it my love for Warhammer Fantasy was born.
I've recently bought SoTHR on, finished it (although I must admit, without the awesome GameFAQs guide by stratifier I don't think I'd ever make it) and now, thanks to this forum guides and some dgVoodoo magic I was able to install and run Dark Omen on my Win 10 laptop  Cheesy
Thanks a bunch for all your work, and many useful threads.

PS. Dark Omen Reborn looks neat! If you ever need any tester, I volunteer!
