This is the first public beta of The Dance Macabre: Harlequins modification for Soulstorm 1.20.

This mod has a long history, starting right back with winter assault. The mod was left abandoned and the assets public released, however it was then revived by a new team who have taken it further towards completion.

The Dance Macabre - Harlequins Mod for Soulstorm The Dance Macabre - Harlequins Mod for Soulstorm

Our team is currently very small, consisting of Undirector and fuggles working on the code and with two testers. Where we can we are beg/stealing/borrowing 3d help and jONES1979 kindly helped out on more than one occasion but we lack any dedicated 3D/OE/FX support, which sadly will hold the mod back from being a completely polished. The known issues on this front are small, but sadly currently unfixable. In fact, one of the key reasons for the release of this build is that the current team feel they have pretty much taken the mod as far as they can and so please consider this both a fully playable race mod and a cry for assistance!

We were unable to get completed voice acting ready in time for our initial release date and now this has been pushed back by another 2 weeks, so rather than sitting and doing nothing, we thought we would let you play.

We hope you enjoy this modification as a lot of hard work has gone into it - Let us know what you think and then look out for version 2!

I'm after this version of the mod , but only for the Dark Crusade expansion. Which I believe was one of the first releases of the mod before Soul Storm. As I can't get my current copy of Soul Storm to work on my rig properly now. Might be that it's too old for my dual core processors now. Who knows, but pointer kept freezing to the same spot on the screen every time I tried to fire it up. So I could manipulate the meu at all.

Anyway, I'm all for older build of this mod right now since I had repurchase Dark Crusade early this week to see if I can (find!) get the nearly ten year old mods working again.

Well the fact that SoulStorm is not working on your PC is odd, since it was DESIGNED for such machines...
So your issue is rather OS related, or you have a damaged game DVD... :(

Anyway, I have compiled the next build of Harlequins and we will soon (hopefully) go public with that.

Regrettably, I do not have a copy of the old DC version. And that would be TOTALLY obsolete now man...
On the other had, downgrading to Dark Crusade is something that would require some work, better invested elsewhere.

I would strongly recommend you should try get that Soul Storm copy of yours working. After all there is a plethora of mods out there (and MANY more are coming) that are Soul Storm exclusive.

might be dumb to post this- given that what i'm trying to do probably isn't supported by your team, but upon attempting to install this- i am not seeing the race name in the skirmish menu. Just shows as "Race:" and additionally in the army painter there appears to be a sequence of numbers followed by "No Range" for instance 19390100 No Range.

Before you ask me yes I'm trying to cram this into UA. Probably not kosher. But here I am.

I'm wondering if I'm perhaps installing something incorrectly- or if this is known-

Any information would be awesome.

Keep it coming otherwise! Love the work!

Regrettably, importing work requires AE skill.
In other words, if you want to add a race into any mod, you'll have to deal with all incompatibilities that may arise.

The issue you mention brother, is one of those. It seems there are overlapping UCS ranges.
VERY easy to fix (even for novice AE coders), but requires LOADS of time.

It is beyond the scopes of my team.

I CAN give you the proper initial boost so that to fix it for yourself, but expect countless boring UCS re-directions...

ALSO CONSIDER
1] Adding a race mod to UA is no easy task. Besides UCS, you will have to rebalance, and adjust the race to the UA race scheme. And this is a multi-level endeavour.
2] SERIOUS: The next Harlequins build is already done. We are no going public with it, because we need some last audio files, and textures for two buildings. So if you manage to import Harleys to UA you will have to REPEAT the whole procedure for the next build !!!!!!

My conclusion: Better skip it altogether...

You must ave done something wrong in the process brother.
Without further data, I cannot be of any use.

In general, each mod must have its .modlue file and its folded put into the SS main folder...

Any further news on this beauty, brother Gambit? Supposedly expecting the release of the Adeptus Mechanicus within March, I couldn't help but think about the very finalised state of this mod.

Kind regards.

The next version is already done, but we are stalling because some art/audio issues have emerged :(

We are now preoccupied with AM, TS and BA, but fear NOT, harleys are on the line :)

P.S.: Sorry for the delayed response!
