I created a mp army and saved it.  I would like to know where this arm file is located.

It finally occurred to me to use search in Windows Explorer.  On my Win 7 64 laptop, the location is:

C:\Users\USERNAMEGOESHERE\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)\Dark Omen\GameData\2parm

Copying a renamed arm file to the expected location works.



Is there guide that lists the layout of a savegame header?  Like how this data is stored.

This happens because you installed Dark Omen in Program files. That location is only writable by an administrator, therefore all write operations are redirected to the VirtualStore for compatibility reasons.

The information is stored in the regiment and not in the header:

I'll check my archives for the missing links to the Regiment List and Mikademus' "big honking list" unless you have it Ghabry?

I didn't see kills listed in the rgt.  So I figured it must be in the save header.

Just one simple question

How can I edit the meeting point for original game (example: to add subtitiles)? There is no "whmtg.txt" file to edit except for mods campaign. Do I have to create a brand new campaign as a copy of original campaign? And if that's the solution, is there anywhere the "default whmtg.txt" to use?

Thanks in advance

Copy Dark Omen 2 mod and rename the folder and match the name to be the same within Mod.ini

Mmm... but in the Dark Omen 2 Mod "whmtg.txt" file, the first "SetDeafultSaveName" value is "Dark Elves" and the first battle in chapter 1 is "B6_01" (a battle with all dwarf units and three skaven units) in a instead of "B1_01"... Am I missing something? Hava I got an old "Dark Omen 2" version?

That's exactly what I was looking for!
Thanks a lot...
Thus, if I want to add subtitles to the original campaign:
1) Create a new mod folder (with the mod.ini file and all usual subfolders) copying it from an existing working mod
2.1) Copy all the original game data from the original game folders
or
2.2) Emtpy all the mod folders so the mod take all original data
Modify the whmtg.txt that I download from your previous link to add subtitles

This won't add subtitles to the original campaign, but add a new mod (let's say "Original Subtitled") with my subtitiles

Correct?
