Hi and Welcome,

We all play original version but there are many Balanced Rulesets and also Dark Omen Expanded (DOE) that contains new sprites and armies.

To get started mutliplayer please my guide - to use Gameranger or Hamachi

Then either play original or use a ruleset -

Or install DOE Mod

Hope to see u online soon and please pop into our Chat Channel for assistance

Hi Scotty,

Do can work prefectly first time or be a pig, olly has posted a link to the fixes in nessary.

What you do need is:

Map Patch 3 - Everyone uses this: http://en.dark-omen.org/index.php?option=com_remository&Itemid=23&func=fileinfo&id=38

 and either

Gameranger:http://www.gameranger.com/] [url]http://www.gameranger.com/[/url] which is the easiest to use and get working


Hamachi:  http://hamachi.en.softonic.com/ which is a bit more of a pig.

For someone to play, there's usually 1 or 2 in or chat here: http://chat.dark-omen.org/?username=Darkmancer

Or add these to your friends list on game ranger there's usually a few online:

yeah , the thing is this :

since there are nice tools to modify the game and make new grapchis and units, some members of the forum 3 or 4 maybe, have decided to make a own mod or ruleset.

so, new users are scared because they see a lot of ruleset and say "wh.. wh.. what do i play"

well the situation here is that each tournament, players have to sign in and with the sign in they have to vote a rulest, the ruleset with more votes, win.

thanks to this, we have variated tournaments, because some mods add new units from warhammer tabletop game, others not (they only balance price items and units prices/sizes) , there are 2 mods that actualizes the dark omen original rules and atributes (4th edition of warhammer rulebook) to the last edition , the7th right? and so on...

maybe, and maybe , you wonder why there are mods beside the original game?¿...

it is simple, the dark omen original multiplayer game mod, is totally unbalanced with some fails in the special abilities of regiments and the relation of price/unit render is bad..

the most notable example i give, that is very clear is this :
the unit WIGHT from undeads, is a 9 men regiment that in the first lvl it costs 1050 gold, then in the next lvl 4200 and finally 8400, so that means that if you buy a regiment of wight lvl 3 you will have only 600 gold left to buy others regiments (if you choose 9k goldcoin), and the thing is that wight is a horrible regiment that if they retreat (attacking from behind or flanks) they rout and perish (die), the cost doesnt worth it, with 8400 you can buy 7 BLACK GRIAL KNIGHTs that they shure will kill a lot, so there you find another imbalance.. the cheap black grial in relation to wights... well in the game there are a lot of things like this, so like i told 3 or 4 members of forum took the initiative of make own balances based on the multiplayer games experience Smiley

here i give you links to some mods:

here FO fair omen , it is a mod based on original dark omen edition (4th)


here new balance 9k , it is a mod that add 3 or 4 units as you will see in the topic , and i think it is based on original 4th edition too :S


this one is mine :$ , it is a mod that actualizes the rules and atributes to 7th edition, and add a couple of units


here the dark omen expanded, a mod that adds like 7 races o dark omen Shocked http://forum.dark-omen.org/dark-omen-expanded-b50.0/

that are the most worked rulesets, you can see the others here
