I'm sorry to announce that the Darkness Within Campaign Project is dead and locked for an undetermined time.
The reasons that motivated this decision are multiple but among them the lack of solid and continuous communication between core members and the lack of reliability from our modelers have been decisive.
i do not wish than anything belonging to this project to be distributed and shared among the community,
even if i know that my will won’t be respected to the letter i asked you guys to try and keep this protected and hidden away from modding predators as much as possible.
A very special thanks to:
Argonaut:who made all this scar and gave a lot of blood and sweat for this project. i have been missing you for too long to keep the modding flame burning in the darkness. All words have already been said. i'll sit one day at your table and ask for some real food.
Jones1979 : SPASIBA ! for your support and invaluable help in the darkest times. if there is a relationship that came close to a real one, this is it !
i really enjoyed your company and presence here. i'm in debt.
Transmit my respect and apologies to the Russian community.
Gambit: yeah man! What a ride! i do liked your way of doing things and your ideas,
we had great and enjoyable conversations and you contributed some precious gems to our project. The daemon mod was a great adventure and you offered me the opportunity to give the best of myself.
Chiu ChunLing : bow to a master of code, very big thanks to you for your Masterclass Scar coding !
Thanks to you we were able to add a strong RPG flavor in DoW. it was a real pleasure to work with you.
Gunfood : if ever there is someone more reliable than you please someone introduce him to me.
You are strong loyal and trustful beta tester, if any project is looking for beta testing handle it to Gunfood.i hope you enjoyed doing all this for Darkness Within. I'm sorry that this project took all of your free time for such a result.
Dark40k: for your precious tools and useful advices, merci du fond du coeur.
i do not forget anybody, all those who contributed to Darkness Within know what they have done for it be it positive or negative. Thanks to all that have supported it during all those years.
DW was one of the MOST promising mods. Shiny and high-quality and very "deep" and innovative and ... everything.
I (obviously) do respect the decision of brother JL. And I totally understand it - the requirements for such endeavour are immense, and some of us (including me)... well we were not as committed and consistent as JL is / always was.
I want to apologise on my behalf for the inconvenience brother JL.
It was an excellent ride for as long as it lasted indeed!!!
And it is a real honour to know you.
P.S.: I enjoyed our conversations very much as well :)
That is not acceptable!
no, i deny it.
when the release date? long time waiting
This is one of the few mods I was actually waiting anxiously to see and so this are sad news. Not completely unexpected due to the signs Jaguar-Lord had been giving but sad nonetheless.
I wish you the best on your endeavours Jaguar-Lord.
This is such bad news!! Please reconsider about leaving the dawn of war modding!!
Why not then release what is done up to know and see if anyone can pick it up???! Don't let it die like this, IT WOULD BE HERESY!
NO !!! no no no no no !!! JL please i know you are having some really hard time but do not abandon this !
you are just making things more difficult for you ! if you do this what else are you going to do.
i come to your home as soon as i come back . answer me !
Really sad to hear about this, you guys made some amazing progress over the years.
Some of the screens you posted looked awesome, and i was looking forward to playing it one day.
But modding is so time consuming and sometimes you just can't continue. I wish you guys all the best and respect your decision.
Sad news.Your work on this project is extraordinary and i think that this project deserves to be released
This is truly sad...was really looking forward to play this modification.
Brother I wish you farewell! It was great working with you and you will be missed.
However I have to agree with some people, do please not let the mod die without releasing your work. It is like me leaving my mod, then never releasing the Hunt Begins for example, or Gambit dropping it and never release Daemons mod 2.0 or hell, Boothy never releasing 4.0 of Codex.
This mod will be a gem, a treasure in the collection of old mods for example, in like the year 2020! People could play your mod, whether good or bad and maybe ONE DAY finish it for you!
But... as it stands and if you leave it as is:
1. People will not ever play with your work.
2. The pictures you posted along with the videos are a tease.
3. People will never ever finish your work and maybe one day complete this thing.
^^^^^ THAT FATE
So please do come back and heed our messages brother. Unless there is of course something else going on, which by then you have my 100% respect, I will delete this message and understand.
But... goodbye Jaguar Lord my friend. Whatever decision you make, I'm sure the community will understand. Your work will be missed.
