Havn't updated the mod selector since over a year.

But here is the sourcecode for reference:

New release.
- Cleaned up the code to be less messy Wink
- Fixed that annoying bug that resulted in EngRel.exe not being patched when the real exe was called Prg.exe.
- SaveGame and 2parm are created on-the-fly when missing
- Adds aqrits WHMTG compiler (with a few changes by myself to allow on-the-fly patching).
- Add the 3D mode fix (that debug flag that switches to windowed mode) + resolution switch.

Not an urgent update required but as previously discussed, we find that Game Ranger launches Dark Omen in small window when using a modified full 3d EngRel.exe (something to do with 16bit if I remember correctly).

However, I found that by creating a new DO Orig folder within the Mods folder (with its own 3d EngRel.exe) does actually then launch the game in Full screen mode. I think we also discussed a possible future update that saves custom army files into the correct mod folder (although I think the latest mod selector does do this but doesn't work with 16bit/3d ?)

Still an amazing mod!

Thanks also to GXQ7 for testing with me.

Update-> As we know GameRanger requires a separate mod selector folder (DOOrig) to launch Dark Omen in full 3d mode (Win 8 16bit) and there is a small issue of not being able to select the correct multiplayer army (even though it does now save to correct mod 2parm folder).

However the solution is to manually copy and paste your custom army001.ARM file from
 
C:\Program Files (x86)\Dark Omen\Mods\DO Orig\GameData\2parm

into the DOOrig mod folder armytemp folder

C:\Program Files (x86)\Dark Omen\Mods\DO Orig\armytmp

and rename it to player0 if you are the Host or player1 if you are joining a Hosted game

Nvidia Graphics card users on Win 7/8 - Download and extract the 3 folders and then paste into

C:\Program Files (x86)\Dark Omen

Save your original PRG_ENG folder, by renaming it before replacing it with this new PRG_ENG folder, that allows 3d mode and mod Selector.  Remember to right click on both the new EngRel.exe found within the new PRG_ENG and Mods\DO Orig\PRG folders to set compatibility settings to 16bit colour and run as Administrator with 640x480 screen resolution (Win 8 ) or set desktop to 16bit (Win7 ).

Remember to manually start Dark Omen and select the DOOrig mod, then quit and host a game on GameRanger, which will auto launch the game in DOOrig mode to allow full 3d!

Any problems delete the 3 new folders and rename your original PRG_ENG folder back to how it was, or replace the new 3d enabled EngRel.exe with the EngRelno3d.exe and rename them to be EngRel.exe instead, which will disable 3d and run Dark Omen in CPU mode. For more information about full 3d mode see below ->

Malus has been creating a new alternate campaign which mods the WHTMG meeting script but he found the Mod Selector darkpatch.dll on the Main Website Downloads section doesn't work but Ghabry's earlier post above in this section does ->

http://forum.dark-omen.org/tools/mod-selector-t1118.0.html;msg12352#msg12352

However, I have also found that it only works on my Win 7 64bit laptop and not my Win8 64bit desktop. If you get a spare moment could you kindly investigate the possible cause please.

Google suggests it maybe C++ Redist but I think I have them all and have tried running in all compatibility modes


* C++Redist3.jpg (156.28 KB. 658x363 - viewed 403 times.)


However, the earlier version of darkpatch.dll that added the overhead map fix worked with Win8 64bit

Thanks

***Answer = Ghabry informs me that the cause was a new 16bit enforcer that needs to removed for Win 8 version of darkpatch.dll and left in to assist 3d mode on Win 7, so we can offer 2 versions depending on operating system***

Thanks for updating darkpatch.dll and also in the main downloads section version. All Works perfectly on both Win7 & Win 8, many thanks!

Ghabry, a question on whmtg.txt

Last time I edited EngRel.exe main campaign script, there was an issue: I could not add more actions to it as I was limited by overall room reserved for script in EngRel.exe
Does the same issue still remain now? What if I add a block or 2 to whmtg.txt and do not remove anything, would you expect any problem? or, if a problem occurs, it will only mean that something is wrong inside my block but not with overall space used?

It should be fine to add more to the whmtg.txt, as I think Malus' Rise Of The Dead 2 mod already has

The whmtg script has been externalized. The mod currently reserves enough space to fit a script 3 times larger than the original.
