hari8, you got the wrong version. This was a very first test i send to Olly in a private message.

Yes i had the plan to have loops but it turned those into a "grind" to get easy gold, so i removed the idea.
The Trading Post is currently not available. The campaign starts after it. Your first 2 missions to chose from are a) help Carlson with the trouble in the south or b) help to defend Helmgart. Ofc after your visit in Altdorf and the chance to spend some gold.

I'm not sure if i should release the next update because i need some more feedback. There are a lot of, how to say, possibilies how someone may get along. The gold rewards are the most important part as you don't get most units for free anymore and still need to fill them up.

@thelastarmada, did you also download the files from Ollys Dropbox?
If not, then try to help Carlson first. Going direct to Helmgart is more difficult.

Thx for the testing guys.

Greetings Warlords!

I'm on a new mission to create a campaign and i need your help to find bugs, oversights or terrible mistakes.
Before i explain the complicated install procedure some infos about the mod. A bit more in detail.

Mod Info

I changed my mind about the horrible story. Its now back to the original one with the voices, movies and all the cool stuff making sense.
The good news is that i read a thread with a post from some Darkomen developer and some problems about cutting out things, making the campaign linear and other things i forgot already. But the important part is the idea, to have choices.
And here comes the "new" way to edit the campaign script handy.

At the campaign script is my current focus. So there are little to no changes to the original missions and my Rise of the Dead mod missions are used here and there for more challenge and to increase the missions number. So this mod will have lots of missions to fight, or lose.

The way of the army progression also changes. You don't get units automaticly, you need to buy them. Same to some magic items. Changing the campaign script made it possible. Maybe not in the best way, but you will see it soon.
Its text based and yes, its the "Helmgart yes/no" used over and over and over again.

Some side effect of adding units and removing gold from the player is that there is no remove gold command. I can only add gold. So how to remove gold? Well add enough to get a 16bit rollover  Grin
This is quite important. Now you need to count and check by yourself if you got enough gold to buy stuff. To make it simple, don't spend more gold than you got or its pretty much an exploit. Can't do something about it. Huh?


Step 1
The mod requires the Mod Selector from Ghabry. Would be best if you also take the Sample Files to have an idea how everything looks like.


Step 2
Download my Rise of the Dead 2 Beta.zip from TinyUpload.com


Step 3
Unpack the Zip. You will see "Rise of the Dead 2 Beta" folder. Open it.
Now you have 2 different folders "GameData" and "Mods"
Mark them and copy them.

Now open your Dark Omen folder and you see all your Dark Omen files like:


Now do a paste.

The content of my both folders "GameData" and "Mods" gets included into the original "GameData" and the Mod Selectors "Mods" folder.

Now you can start the game and select the "Rise of the Dead 2 Beta" in the Modselection.


I need feedback on difficulty and army progression. Basicly how is your army doing.
What units did you buy and which missions did you chose.
Are you poor or have to much gold?
Could i name options(strings) better to improve the, you know, "Roleplaying".
Pls try to not spoil to much if possible.

Other Modders

If you have a map ready and want it included please let me know. We could use them as extra or side missions. There is like endless space to add more.

Well then good luck with the install and have fun testing  Grin

Thx for all the feedback guys!

Its nice to see so much interest to the 5 year old mod after coming back to this page. Wasn't around for quite a while Tongue

I feel a bit sorry for the first mission lobber as it wasn't intented to be there after internal testings. Cause it only leads to reloads/restarts and doesn't add much to the battle. Though its kind of funny how it stood there for all this time. This mission was like my very first attempt to mod the AI, so its also special and more time went into it. But based on the feedback and the fact that i removed it while testing and the huge annoying RNG it should be removed or replaced by a spearthrower.

The lobber RNG was also a reason i used mostly canons for the other missions as they are not that RNG heavy and, at least for me, have a special flavor. I like to see a row impaled or pushed away.

I prefer to go all offense instead of stay and wait for waves. Like to see close clombat and how it turns out. To move a army as a whole. I think most mission reflect this.

To the last mission i have to say it was there to block your from passing and let you die there. The reason was first to get time for the next chapters and second to lead into some "story" thing. Don't want to spoil. Can't believe somebody did beat it  Shocked

Right now i'm at learning to mod the WHMTG script and get this done. I will use this mod to continue so to say i reuse the missions and try to add more to get a new campaign feel. Like you wont see the original path or talking as it doesn't make any sense for this mod.

But i have no idea how to do it now and how much is possible. As far as "new" progress goes, i was able to get count carstein into the first mission, to change him to cast fire spells and do his teleport around thing whitout crash. Of course a had to give him a shaman friend cause 2 mages are cool. So much possible now cause of the CTL script progress. Was really impressed when i first saw the new articles.

Btw i was about to beat my first mission (with lobber) at first try but then it destroyed with its last shot, before getting charged, my greatswords.  :Smiley
And my mage got so many hits by arrows, but didn't die. I was always like "no, thats it" and he, just a blody face telling "they are shooting at us".

This game is fun! I laught at every arrow  Grin

Yeah thats so much fun with playin!!  Grin

cant imagine how this stuff works, but it does! Awesome!
Poor enemys, they are too less!!

I hope i can give a good lookable version at weekend 4 testing who is interested.
But right now the code looks realy stupid (what a shame), sounds stupid (shame too) and eyes of every programer would bleed like hell  Shocked

Thankz for the response!

I think its the best to finish the GUI at the very very last of all.
Right now, some naked buttons and lazy listboxes will do the job as well Wink

I was wondering how difficult it is to change existing files, cause you need to rewrite them from the beginning.
But the power of python is with me!!

To buy units works, there is just the "Goldcoin" problem.
With some tricks, its realy easy, to cheat on the player. Because the data is visible just of a simple "flag"

For now, i'm happy that all things going well!


10  Modifications / Tools / Campaign Tool on: February 08, 2011, 07:08:33 PM
Hi @ all, long time no see Wink

My dark plan is to write a tool for the lovely campaign, which allows free map selection, to buy and sell units.

The first step was just free mission selection, thats done and works fine (for the first ~ 10 missions, missing the data for the others but thats no problem).

Second is the buy/sell option and, thats the important thing, get the stuff work with the maps.

The Problems!!:
1. Every change (mapselection/buy/sell) needs Gameexit, open Tool+select newest savegame+ do what you want, close tool,start game.
Yes this sucks, but there is no other option ;(

2.I dont know if its a developer joke, but why the hell, i need to tell the game that i want to use my active units on the battlefield? -.-
So a totaly rebuild of ALL goddamn BTB files is nessesary to allow every unit. Otherwise some Units are not available at the battle.
Some Units join the army and later disappear , i.e. the Carlons Cavalry or the Treeman.
Thats because the Unit has an unique unit ID and after i.e. the Treemanmission the game sets the unit with this Id to inactive status.
Good News! Its possible the change all unit Ids(start armyfile PLYR_ALL) and the game still works fine. i.e. numbers from 30-56 instead of 2-28.
With this change, no unit will join or disappear, so all "unitchanges" comes with the campaign tool or they die on battlefield Wink .

3.The Tool itself

I'm new to Python and TKinter, but first steps are done for a simple GUI with missionselection.
Now it seems i could need a helpfull hand from someone who knows more than myself about python and tkinter Wink

How can i:

-set the background for the GUI? I want a background like multiplayer GUI ingame
-set picture for buttons,

or all in one, i want the exactly same GUI like multiplayer armycreation ingame, what whould you do? ^^

yes thats all

Dont trink to much blood!!

Oh I´m so sorry thats my fault, there should be no rock lobber.
It should be disabled at the enemy armyfile but in this version it isn`t.
Yes the rock lobber is too much random, get luck that he doesn`t hit to many times.

I thought it has been disabled  Tongue

I will release the chapter 3 and fixes of 1/2 during the X-mas hollidays. Actualy i have to much trouble.

Thx 4 the helpfull feedback =)

I found the problem with the sprite of Chaos Knights.

I changed the name of ST_ZZNewGreen1 to ST_ZZNewPlyr3 and the sprite value in the armyfile from 3b to 29.
Now it works fine!  Grin

I have no idea why the ST_ZZNewGreen1 doesn´t work at my DO  Shocked

Oh my dear god!!!
I changed the name back to ST_ZZNewGreen1 and 3b and it works. crazy but interesting

I have found some bugs:

-game chrash if i use the enemyarmy -> use the original with goblins -> works
-1parm PLYR_ALL: coldoneknights -> unitsprite is dwarf -> change to same as leader (2c)
- it seams that the unitsprite 3b cause the crash -> with an other (e.g. BKG) it works
- yes its the sprite, change enemy unitsprite of the chaos knight to BKG and it works fine

The new sprites looks realy good, love the coldones <3 !!

I have tryed to give a goblin shaman (AI controlled) Blast or Burning Head and it works. But sometimes the game crashes.
He uses wargh magic too.
Conflagration of Doom works too.
The game crashed if:
-wrong wizardsprite is used. e.g. goblin with brightspells
-spells are placed at first magic item e.g. burning head works only on slot 2 or 3

if i disable the waaghbook for the goblinshaman (with brightwizardsprite) he uses more the brightspells(blast and conflagration of doom) and only sometimes a waaghspell (gaze of mork)

just some fast trys but i have no idea how it realy works and why it crashes  Shocked
