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...
The files are free, but it is nice that you give Ben Glover credit if you use them for your own game project and release it for the public. I have older DoD files from Ben Glover, former DoD map designer, after talking with him, and was given permition to release the files for the public. The zepelin level and mine level, among others, are included. Don't use the gamex86.dll included (some AI soldiers get stuck).
Even without this release off gamex86.dll, copy all the folders in your roarke folder. Don't overwrite your existing text files, just let it copy the new ones. It is posible that the identical old ones contain missing lines. This was work in progress, but it has new unused enemies sounds etc., so after you play the maps, leave this old DoD to work with the Quark editor.
The list is :
env, maps (just .bsp files not .map files), pics, players, scrnshot, sounds, sprites, texts, textures, working dll
The map list is, bsp only :
6_2v17, dod2_1_39, dod5_1, DOD5_2, dod6_2_1, dod6_3r2, dod6_4, DOD9_1
The maps are :
Into the Earth, Welcome Home, Cheitan Guns, Into the Earth, dod6_2_1, Mine Docks, Citadel Docks.
Thank you Ben Glover. I dedicate this to EricBoyceU and all the DoD players.
