Post news RSS New year huge update – mod retrieved from Mod DB! 40+ fixes scheduled!

The Dark Army: Uprising was released last Wednesday and received mixed reviews upon release, although it has a majority of good reviews. To be frank with you all, I'm not satisfied of the modification: it has a lot of bugs/glitches, mainly related to the development but also to the engine. I can promise that all of these will be fixed with an upcoming re-release... but that's not all: the modification will now require the original retail game in order to avoid any copyright issues.

» Answer to the Russian community

First of all, I want to say sorry to the Russian community: the development has been rushed on some parts and I agree it's not complete. I also want to thank Eugeny Panikarowsky for pointing many of the illogical moments of the mod (especially in The Crypt) as well as AidenDemon for pointing out credit-related mistakes and errors. I want to apologize towards both of them as I agree with their respective reviews. I also agree on the point I've been over-promoting this mod in order to get attention from the community. It won't happen again. Also, I believe this project was revealed too early. This time, for future project such as the mod's second part, I won't reveal anything until there's a month before release.


» Modification retrieved from Mod DB — back February 20

The modification's gonna be retrieved from Mod DB as another -revised- version (currently in the works) will be uploaded. This new version, baptized 2.0, will see all current bugs/glitches fixed. It will be available on Mod DB as of February 20, next month. As it is right now, it's a shame it's available.

Weapons and other models exclusive to this modification will be made available for the original game from this website. That includes weapons, lockers, medical boxes/kits, lens-flares... and it will be free to use, to share and to modify. You won't necessarily need to credit-me if you're using my stuff; I don't care about that until your releases are free.

Thanks everyone and happy new year.
