Dawn of Darkness was an excellent RPG/adventure/action game that was dumped by Ward Six Entertainment in 1999. It's not well-known, but it is a real gem, so make sure you play it. Dawn Of Darkness takes place in a long vanished world of mighty forgotten empires and magic. It is the tale of a once revered Lucitanian warlord, Roarke The Merciless, caught between his obligations to his family, his empire and his honor. You are Roarke the Merciless, imprisoned in the captured Manawyd monastary by an army from the Cheitan Empire who have attacked the village you have lived in. Roarke is an elite fighter, if perhaps a little out of practice since his days as one of Lucitan's greatest warlords. You begin playing armed with only the dagger Roarke had hidden in his boot, you must escape and find Sylmaril. How you do this is up to you. The game is played with basically the most of the same controls as Quake 2, except for the new commands and items bindings we've added. Dawn of Darkness...

Description

===================== CONTENTS OF THE PATCH ===================== The patch includes a file called "PAK1.PAK". I fixed some content, more specifically the mystical "disappearing prisoners"-bug in DOD2_2.bsp. Some people have reported their keybindings didn't go correctly (=the way they were described in the readme.txt), and the game didn't start from the menu the way it was supposed to. Now theres new "CONFIG.CFG" and "DEFAULT.CFG", and with these files it will work, however if you have changed some key bindings already, they will be lost. BE AWARE THAT YOU CANNOT CHANGE SOME OF THE KEY BINDINGS THROUGH THE MENUS, you have to edit the .cfg file. (Don't know how? Maybe our messageboard will help). So, unless you really know what you are doing, I suggest you just overwrite your config.cfg and default.cfg, and then see below for the keybindings. I also added some ready shortcuts for Dawn Of Darkness. They are in "DoD Shortcuts.zip"...

CONTENTS OF THE PATCH
=====================

The patch includes a file called "PAK1.PAK". I fixed some content, more specifically the mystical "disappearing prisoners"-bug in DOD2_2.bsp.

Some people have reported their keybindings didn't go correctly (=the way they were described in the readme.txt), and the game didn't start from the menu the way it was supposed to.
Now theres new "CONFIG.CFG" and "DEFAULT.CFG", and with these files it will work, however if you have changed some key bindings already, they will be lost. BE AWARE THAT YOU CANNOT CHANGE SOME OF THE KEY BINDINGS THROUGH THE MENUS, you have to edit the .cfg file. (Don't know how? Maybe our messageboard will help).

So, unless you really know what you are doing, I suggest you just overwrite your config.cfg and default.cfg, and then see below for the keybindings.

I also added some ready shortcuts for Dawn Of Darkness. They are in "DoD Shortcuts.zip" (You might have to edit them).

Be aware that some of your old saves may not work. (Those saved in the Elvod Village)
