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 - Let us know what you think and then look out for version 2!

Where are the power generators? They are one of the most important things in the early game and without them I got beaten easily.

They don't use Power Generators. Power is generated from Listening Posts. Select one and check out the icons that appear in the taskbar.

Hello, I am experiencing problems with the downloaded executable file hosted here.

No matter how many times I try, the file does not properly extract the contents. After downloading it in a Linux machine, copying and moving it to a Windows one, the exe file converts to a .tmp file and I'm unable to execute it.

I've tried to extract the contents with Archive Manager in Linux but the 7z compression seems to be corrupted somehow.

May the author can host a non-self extracting file version as an alternative? It is the first time I've seen such a problem.

Well, just commenting that I solved the issue. Those who have experienced any problem with the .exe file can rename it to a .rar and extract the contents.

Caveat: there are a minor incompatibility in UCS files with the Renegade Guard mod 0.64, you have to remove the 'UCS dark profecy' file from the latter mod in order to get the Harlequins properly labelled. It does not affect either mod in skirmish.

If your going to do some work on this I would suggest giving them an easier start. They are by far the crappiest race to start with. Maybe the testers that tested this like things to be a challenge, but right now they are so frickin weak in the beginning they can hardly stand up to anything. And no this is not balanced by them being so uber at the end, which they are not.

So when can we expect the next patch with the additional voicing and the remaining models? The collaboration between this one and the Arlequin mod would also be happening, right?

The next patch will be when Thud does the voices, well, implements them as I believe they are all recorded. Models is harder as no-one has come forward so likely no new models, but will likely bring jetbikes forward a tier in next build.
