This mod was never dead, just in the webway slumbering! This is the original Harlequins Race mod for Dawn of War which has been handed down to a new team to complete. This is a mod for Dawn of War: Soulstorm which adds a new playable race to skirmish and multiplayer.
The Dance Macabre Modification adds the Harlequins as a new playable race to your Dawn of War: Soulstorm 1.20 game. The Harlequins are a mysterious faction of the Eldar race who combine war with theatre in their eternal quest to purge chaos and keep safe the webways.
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.
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!
The Dance Macabre Team
