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!

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...

Fuggles and Thud and Undirector and all the people involved that have taken up Shingouki's (+his original team's) work, thanks so much. Been following the CWE/Harlequin mod since 2005 (on the old forums for the mod, even, as a horrifically young idiot that posted a stupidly large amount of stupid topics and posts) and didn't feel like this would ever see the light of day ever again... It's such a shame that so many incredible mods sort of withered away and fell by the wayside as DoW1's community did the same... and even as DoW2 had its short run and died shamefully quickly as well.

I hope some of the old team stops by when you guys release this in November. I think they'd be incredibly pleased with your work and how you've kept on going for so many years.

Thanks for your kind words and support! Public Beta should be out next week; there is still work to be done, but we will need some help to do it beyond the skill set in the current team - Maybe the old guard could join in for one last go! Now... I have to try and avoid the release post getting archived.

Not 100% sure as I've only briefly looked at Codex, however this does not alter any existing files, so balance issues aside, I don't see why not. The author of Codex has already contacted me, so I'm sure we can sort something out.
